[16:23] <pcj_2> why would you drop pennies

[16:23] <pcj_2> that would take more time than it's worth

There's nothing like coming home from a suckawith day @ work, logging onto your computer and searching up tgakick.com, to find that the kickstarter campaign for Ace Hardway is funded up to $499,000 (approx), and then refreshing the page and seeing that it has jumped over the $500,000 goal. It's the kind of uplift and joy likable to smelling the fresh laminated box of a new SQ installment that has just hit the shelves at Costco. :)

Pretty fucking awesome... I am really looking forward to spending the upcoming months obsessing over every scrap of detail that comes out for the game.. its going to be fun... I also feel that I should probably make a Chris "Space" Pope LEGO figure.

Wow, this exceeds my wildest, I was expecting 490K when I got home from work, optimistically.. This is just so great. And to think a week or so ago we all were worried this might not even make it.

 

As I said on the KS comments:

Thanks to everyone, special thanks to Chris Pope, Pcj and Troels, who have been instrumental in making this happen.. i'm practically in tears here :):D
