  1. I'm glad "we" made it even though it kinda was a close call. I'm very excited to see whats coming next (and I do hope there's more feedback to be found cause quite frankly the other projects often seem to disappear -- or I didn't look well enough -- in a mediasilence.)



    I'm stoked, congratulations to the Guys and good job everyone else.

  2. Well I cringe at fake enthousiasm and I'm not bothered by how they look on-screen myself but looking at older videos of them VS now it's baffling. (Well maybe not baffling, they were younger then, most likely full of life and dreams and life happens but... idk)


    Tim Schafer had his infamy going for him and most likely a great thing was that he's so "in-touch" with a couple of communities (Giant Bomb for example). Carmageddon has it's infamy as well, same for Shadowrun and some others I followed.

    Larry was dominated by people being pissed of they shat on the brand with the last two gamers perhaps (I certainly was one of those as a passive backer).



    But again, it's not ONE thing. Like said, if I was Shattner or some other loaded guy) it would be a cakewalk to drop 50.0000 to get my likeness in. And yeah, let's pray to the almighty gods that they'll make it, even if its with only 1€ extra.

  3. As usual the why and how of why people pledge or don't will alas be look upon in a narrowminded way.


    I think the reason why people don't plegde are the following:

    1) no money or kickstarter fatigue (i'm one of these, more first then latter)

    2) no interest (can't do shit about these people)

    3) no trust in the product


    I personally feel a bit awkward when I see the Two Guys come together. Sure it's been a decade since their falling out and I'm not really keeping track of who said what to who but, to me, their body language sometimes seems awkward. No offence to the guys but it sometimes looks like "life hit them hard" and they're dragging themselves along. Their sarcasm which many people won't get or accept and the fact they "haven't made a game in..." which can be distorted by willing ears.

    I've also noticed a large amount of negativity (people removing plegdes?) which is then countered by an overly sacharine optimism.


    All this plus the fact people seem to think they need a game ready for them to pledge (sorry, Double Fine didn't give shit and most of the famous ones only have concepts much like this one). Sure it might help to give some info and tell people who that character is going to be and not use the "soon" tag when there's time ticking away especially when you know most people want Roger Wilco and Space Quest and not something that might be too different. And sure it might be great to avoid confusion in tiers and fuckups with updates but hey...


    I'm also baffled by the amount of money that is asked (not only for this game mind you). Ofcourse people need to get payed for their work but... damn... Wouldn't it be nice to get 2000€ to work on my own game for the next year? Again, I'm flat-broke and struggling so these amounts ofcourse will baffle me but it tends to make one think: where does this money go?


    Last but not least: the tiers (haven't checked the multiple changes) but I don't think many people, except hardcore fans, are interested in a drawing of themselves as an alien. Carmageddon gives you a game and some merchandising. I'm aware this crap costs money as well but as a very weary consumer Id rather have a Space Quest'ian gmmick like buckazoids or in-game stuff (LSL did a swell job of this) then a "mere" A4 drawing. It would be nice to have but for that amount other things can be bought (or not... it's Crowe's work ofcourse).




    I hope this makes it and if it doesn't that the amount of money can be brought back to this amount on some other venue. I'm also willing to help in making the game for free but I don't see a company figuring something out for a dozain of free-work-labourors on an internet level (slacking being the most occuring problem. As a former mod-maker I can assure you that keeping a free-working team together is a daily chore).


    So 200.000 left go go go

  4. That statement from the Andromedans basically states they will do "something else" gamewise... I hope they don't.


    I don't mind the female protagonist and it might even get interesting. Plus yeah, boobs... Spaceballs. In fact I don't mind anything really and as I'm thinking of what would be interesting there's a shitload of stuff I'd like to add to it.


    Time will tell what and if... but this shouldn't be the first that fails even though (in my opinion) the two have been unfortunate in how they deliver things. The piracy thing really needed that video for it to be understood as irony/sarcasm/funny stuff.

  5. I'm all willing to go on the "we will make it" bandwagon but none of you really answered the true question (okay, sorry, didn't read that one guy's post - mea culpa and the excuse that i'm working at the same time. Maybe I just want to hear it from them upstairs themselves).


    What, for whatever reason, all of a suddon, out of the blue, by total surprise the chaps from Andromeda only manage to get up to 499.042$ and this project won't be funded on a Kickstarter legal level. What, if such a calamity should even ever occur, will happen?


    Will we go underground? Will they continue regardless? Etc



    Ofcourse it aint over, ofcourse there's a surge at the end, ofcourse William Shattner and some other celebs can fund this stuff from their toilet (all they need to do is give money and demand to be voice-actor for the Andromedans under treat of their own demise.) And I do really want them to succeed even though their whole (unwritten) story is a bit... awkward.


    Oh and coupons for Droids please, with Buckazoids for cross-over Sierrta (sonny bond's great-great-x4 grandson or a larry sexdoll - finally he gets all the ass he desired). No seriously, all this and more needs to happen so whats plan B, C, D and XR please.

  6. Hello


    Even though there's (amidst the sheer amount of negativity and drama) a group of people who are overly positive about the outcome of this project I would like to raise the question that apparently hasn't been asked yet.


    What's gonna happen if we don't get the required amount in 12 days? Are you lot going to continue development or search other means to re-do the funding?


    I would ofcourse like to see this come to a happy ending but I'm reknown for my cynicism so I fear this is the first kickstarter I've followed that's gonna fail. And it sucks.

    Id like to help but my financial means do not allow help in such matter (and no the "whats 1$ for ya" doesn't make sense - trust me) and I'm reluctant to apply for the 3D since well... I might not be good enough and you lot already have a 2D artist.



    Anyhoo, what's gonna happen if a miracle doesn't??







    PS I never uploaded that portrait avatar of mine here so why does it get that *puzzled*
