Stretch Goals and Backer Rewards - What do you think?


Recommended Posts

It's been suggested a few times already I think, but I really like the idea of signed and framed artwork as a higher tier backer reward.

Yeah, I brought it up as well, but looking at the amount of stuff Obsidian has added already, I don't really see this happening.

I wonder if it would be possible to get tshirts earlier than 2014...though I know there will be issues with the postage costs of two mailings.

 

Even if there is just an option to get another tshirt from an online store or whatever after the KS, waiting until game release seems like a bit too long.

 

I would like to get my tshirt now and be a walking advertisement for Obsidian and Project Eternity for the next 18 months.

The problem with having the expansion as an add on is that a lot of people will increase their pledge, which gives money to the KS which they have vowed would be spent solely on the main game only.

The money from sales post launch and from obsidians coffers are what will pay for the development of the expansion, and to recoup that money they need to sell the expansion to us post kickstarter, if most already own it, it will be harder to recoup money spent on the expansion. They are a business after all and I am sure this is their worry.

 

While this wasn't my solution, it is what they did. So they must think it's the best idea.

Myself, I don't really agree with the whole "we lose money if we give away the Xpac as an addon" idea. Really the game is costing nothing to make due to kickstarter funds, most of the sales of the main game will be profit. This goes to the Xpac. Only after the Xpac goes on sale will you know how many will buy it.

 

It seems silly to limit initial KS funds based on some imaginary sale that may or may not happen. We know for sure any extra funds going into the KS will help make a better game.

 

So Xpac addon away and have a good time, the main game will be even more awesome because of it.

Nobody knows the long term impact of Kickstarter funding, nor how a company can be based on making games using it.

 

No one.

 

Not even the few who have finished games (like FTL.)

 

It's too new.

Now that tthe new goals are out, I hope Obsidian keeps some stretch goals in their backhand to avoid what happened in the beginning of the kickstarter. It's unpredictable and we may as well break 3.5 Mil.

I'd be happy with another big city as much as the next person...

 

 

but I'd bet good money we aren't seeing $3.5 million. It is just not likely, end bump in pledges or no.

I'll bet with you. :)

 

And I have no doubt we'll make it.

I'm curious as to what, other than sheer optimism, fuels your believe that this will happen.

I hope you'll be immensely generous with us and give us the 2nd big city even if we're a little short :D I'm sure this will at least break 3 million.

 

That's the only thing sad about stretch goals, whenever you fail to meet one, the fans feel like they're missing out!

 

Edit: Oh hey, how about adding small extra goals at 3.2 and 3.35 or something? That might help build the excitement and get us closer to the City.

A fun "stretch goal" would be a spell creation system. :)

 

Also, how about adding a Physical Tier + Wasteland 2? I'd love to give more, but I want(need) the physical copy, and right now, nothing entices me. (I don't care for T-shirts and patches...)

I think $3,336,372 would be a fun bonus stretch goal, since this would mean they'd beat Double Fine Adventure to the spot of the most successful gaming Kickstarter ever by $1. :)

And at that amount hire Tim Shafer to voice an NPC.

Optimism, having witnessed many previous kickstarters and this

Starting to think I might want a second, regular edition physical copy to add to my CE - no other reason than it'd be interesting to have both boxes on display (am getting both CE and regular for Wasteland 2). Would probably work as a $35-40 addon if so inclined to add it (based on the $65 tier and valuing the digital copy at $25 and the digital doodads at $0-5). Might even consider adding one at no charge to the $500 tier if the discussion about what to do to sweeten the $500 tier is still ongoing.

 

 

 

And obviously I'll keep banging the gong about the cycling cap. :p

It might have been mentioned somewhere, but I missed: "Project Eternity" is a working title of the game, so... the design of, say, T-shirts will be changed along with the game's title, right? Or wrong?

 

Ouroboros without any titles was cool BTW. Oh well.

I like ouroboros more than a name of a region / city again like "Aedyr Empire". Or maybe a millionaire should name it for investing lets say 1 million. Would be fair and good for the game :=)

As long as it doesn't say "Bite me!" on the back.

Do you have a link to a spreadsheet with estimated Backer figures? Would like to know how deep we can possibly go :D

It is still possible that there are many interested people who is doubtful about how much money they can pledge to the project. I was among these, today I decided the amount of money I wanted to pledge, and I'm sure lots of people are in the same situation as me. I think it will be difficult to reach the 3,5 million mark, but if we don't make it we'll be very, very close.

 

If we are very close indeed, we can try to convince people at Obsidian to create the 2nd big city. We may be successful :D
