  1. as far as the concern of it bringing bickering and complaining to the forums i just feel like saying, who cares. i dont care if johnny wants to complain about how much they are allocating to character design or what susie has to say about them using X amount of dollars for post production.


    I dont want a breakdown because i think OE is incompetent or because i dont trust them. if that were the case i would have never pledged. It is simply because i am curious. Maybe that isnt a good enough of a reason to see such a thing, but from their perspective who cares if people complain. people complain anyway on here no matter what they do. thats just apart of the internet, people have alot of opinions and think they are right most the time.

  2. thats just it though, if you know you arent informed enough to understand the costs, then there really isnt any reason for you to get upset. you are already self aware enough to admit you dont know what costs what, so then you should be aware enough not to get upset when you see figures. I mean i am curious if all the rewards cost $500K, personally i think they were smart with the reward tiers as most of the stuff is digital and should help keep costs down. things like cloth maps are going to drive the costs up etc...

  3. Also to add to that, when the owner of that project had been transparent, every comment i read was only positive. People were happy to see him be so willing to tell them where all the money went, he even told them he was $50k in debt trying to finish the project and that it was going to get finished no matter what. So he reassured people that he wasn't going to let them down.

  4. Yea i don't want a very detailed breakdown, just something broad. For example i was browsing kickstarter the other day and came upon a project that was over and had been funded. The owner of the project posted an update with a broad break down and the total amount of money he had raised was around $35k, just for his rewards and incentives to his backers he had spend $10k. I couldn't believe that was how much it had cost for incentives to get people to back the project. Things like that is what i find interesting.


    And to the guy that said if we got these numbers we wouldn't know what to do with them since we are not in the industry... wouldn't by getting to see such numbers give us a better understanding? Also like someone else said, it would be nice to see how many failed pledges there were and minus the fees to paypal and amazon so that way we can have a more realistic number.

  5. dont get me wrong... i dont think we actually have any entitlement. and i wouldnt want a breakdown on every single penny as far as peoples salarys go. like i dont need to know how much george is getting in order to be on the team. It could just be something like


    $10,000 - for graphics engine and in game tools being built

    $500 - alcohol for the kickstarter ending party


    or whatever. i am just interested in the fact that i personally would like to see what that amount of money goes into to make a game like PE. Also i am a numbers guy so i actually like number crunching. thats just me though

  6. So excited to get an update, now only 7 more days till the next one!.... what am i going to do till then :unsure: So who is ready for when 6 months down the road they are like."Well guys we actully promised too much for the amount of money we got. we need to cut the dungeon levels down to 5, we are taking out the second city and the world will only be half the size we originally planned" lol


    Seriouslt the scope of this game is large and i am really excited to see what they do. And as far as the size of the game... i am ok with a 50gb download, bring it on.

  7. In update 28 they talk about how they are making a spreadsheet on the break down of the funding and where all the money is planned to go. 1. as a backer i think we should get to see this breakdown. and 2. more importantly i just think it would be interesting to see where 4.1 million goes into making a game as epic as this. Its an insight that most consumers dont get to see. Kind of an inside look on things


    What do you guys think

  8. A baby Pegasus. Or a dwarf. I've always thought it would be amusing to have a pet dwarf. Who has a pet rock.


    Another idea is a pet undead creature. Probably a zombie. One problem is it would be very bad if it bites the neighbor. Although, depending on the neighbor's personality, it might make them more pleasant to live next to.


    Pet dwarf? wouldnt that just be slavery...
