    I worked a bit on converting over material from the Broomcloset this afternoon. The following articles are now in the Articles > Ramblings section:

    Decaffeinated Jedi reacted to marsilies in Paypal Pledges   
    Last night, during the wrap party, they mentioned that they're keeping the Paypal option open for a while longer. They listed some stretch goals for the additional funds:
     
     
    550k - Translations (German, French, and I think Spanish, with Portuguese a possibility)
    600k - Cluck Y'egger mini game (launched from the game menu)
    625k - Cluck Y'egger animated graphic novel drawn by Mark Crowe.
    650k - An additional level in the game featuring a playable female protagonist.
    700k - EGA graphics mode
     
    They didn't mention a specific deadline for paypal pledges or the stretch goals. Hoewver, a number of these can be added pretty late into the development, so I wouldn't expect them to cut Paypal funding until they need to lock down the game and finish it for release.
     
    For Paypal pledges, now that the Kickstarter is over, those pledging will not receive any Kickstarter exclusive items like the Buckazoids. I think those paypal pledges that came in before the Kickstarter ended should get them though.
     
     
    In addition, they're planning to open up a store for selling SpaceVenture merchandise. They previewed a Cluck Y'egger pilot wings pin that will be available. They also talked about the possibility of another Buckazoid coin with a different design from the Kickstarter exclusive. Purchases from the store will go towards the stretch goals.
     
     
    Keep in mind that this is mostly from memory of what was said, and the Two Guys were pretty blitzed last night as well. So all this is subject to corrections or changes when they post the official announcements.

    Decaffeinated Jedi reacted to Ohverture in The Ballad of 218K   
    I....am going to bed. I hashed this out in the shower, and at work, probably subject to change, but here it is for now. All comments welcome.
     
     

    The ballad of 218K -
    Dedicated to those who never gave up, and everyone else besides.
    (Think "The Times they are a Changin" by Bob Dylan, mixed with
    "Scarborough Fair" - the Simon and Garfunkel version) With a dash of the Space Quest 1 theme thrown in for relief. :) 218K is pronounced two-one-eight-K)
    COME! Gather around and I’ll tell you a tale
    Of brave Women and Men who all Pledged to prevail
    Over fantastic odds, and the trolls in their way,
    As they reached the great slowdown of 218K
     
    Space Pope was assembling an army to fear
    Yes the Two Guys would come, but they were not yet near.
    The Andromedan cavalry, riding our way
    In the deafening silence of 218K
     
    But the trolls did besiege our poor garrisoned mound
    Well, the total went up, and the total went down
    Oh they toyed with emotions and got in our way,
    In that terrible struggle of 218K
     
    Yes, we fought and we bickered, we knew it was bleak
    Seemed we wouldn’t reach 500K in two weeks.
    There would be no Space Venture, and nothing to play
    If we just couldn’t win against 218K
     
    But, in that darkest hour, hearts heavy with dread,
    Our adventure games future, it hung by a thread..
    Out of sheer desperation, with no more to say
    We clawed out of the trenches of 218K
     
    Now if we stood a chance, heck, we just couldn’t tell
    With the cone on our side, though it wasn’t, as well?
    Oh the Trends, and the Triangle fought us that day
    As we clashed, worn and weary, with 218K
     
    All adventurers rallied to put out the word
    On the forums, and tweeted (though not like a bird)
    And then, ever so slowly we pulled from the fray
    And we gained some momentum through 218K
     
    So! With 42 bullets and 5 guns apiece,
    The Xenon Special Forces, they led our release
    With the power of Polycheese, and Douglas A,
    Slowly scaled the great mountain of 218K
     
    *tempo slows*
    As we drew near the crest, there was hope in the air
    For we knew it would all be downhill beyond there -
    With one final full-Nelson, pushed over the line...
    …..And we gazed on green pastures of sweet 219
     
    Friends! This story impassioned, is one of renown -
    Tell your children to pass-down our tale to their own,
    Of the Quests that we went through to be here today,
    And to look back in wonder at 218K.
     
    Yes we look back in triumph at 218K.
     
    So. Who’s good with an acoustic guitar? :P

    I admit, I was pretty tense for a while...the amount was at 489 when I had to leave the house, and when I got back 5 hours later, it was 512.
     
    And we helped make this happen! Thanks a ton to everyone who went out of their way to help fund and promote this thing.
     
    And now, as promised...Pledge Quest victory art!
