I'm in favor of giving lesser versions of KS tiers. After all, these people actually funded the game in the first place so they should have a more unique reward. (Maybe the boxed versions could be a bit different as well in Box design compared to any future boxed copies for the general public for example). On the other hand it would be nice if those that did make a pledge already to have the ability to upgrade their pledge with the proper KS style rewards as a thankyou, a bit like Wasteland 2 has done it with original backers still having the ability to pick up original KS rewards while new backers get slightly stripped down versions.

Problem is, that could screw people like me, who find that their pledges aren't going through (seriously, I must've tried at least 6 times).

yes, that is the correct sequence of actions.

EDIT

i think he meant after they'd have normally closed it down.

I think there would have to be some common sense involved. If you make the pledge within the first week(undertandable that with the rush not all are going through now), then you still get the full rewards but really there has to be a limit eventually otherwise it's not only not fair, BUT people will wise up and think 'why should I bother backing this now when I can have the same thing at some time in the future when I really know what the game is about and can decide whether to give money or not?' In the end it will actually hurt other projects.

Yeah, after they close the whole thing I meant and before they open it up for the public.

Wasteland did an interesting thing recently. It brought back the Kickstarter tiers, with the low end ones costing significantly more than they did on the Kickstarter, and the high end ones ($1000 or $500 and up, don't remember) being the same. I don't know if it's the best solution, but at least for me it feels okay. That said, I'm not a high end backer.

I originally picked the $20 tier on Kickstarter. Is there any way to raise my pledge?

I'm experiencing "reverse buyer's remorse", as another thread puts it. I didn't have the money to pledge $50 back then, will have it next week. :(

I hope the Paypal option stays open a little while longer, haven't been able due to a multide of reasons to back this project within the kickstarter period and I were hoping to be able to do so once I get my next paycheck (this friday 2012-10-19). I think it would be ideal to at the very least leave it open until the end of October to let people recieve their next paycheck so they have some funds to spend.


I'm in the same position you are -- I had to back out of my pledge on kickstarter and was planning on using Paypal to donate later this week.

They need to close it to finalise the budget.

Maybe they'll open a backer store, or give an option to preorder it, but the crowdfuning period is over.

Does that mean the $4.0m stretch goal reward will be included in the final product as well?

So is there no plans to make a backer store like Wasteland 2? I wanted to raise my pledge later. :/

Here is my questions, will the Paypal backers contribute towards the Mega Dungeon?

If so, and they make it to 14, please for all that is right, just make it 15. Having 14 levels just seems so....wrong.

Obsidian have talked a bit about opening up an online store, hopefully it'll happen.

I really hope this happens as I wanted to increase my pledge before KS ended, but wasn't able to do so bec. of some circumstance. :(

I am okay with an online store, helps bring in some money now and again. But please no repeat of kickstarter rewards, and please do not use the term 'late backers'. I turned away because of it.

awesome. This will help rake in some more cash to make the gane even better and allow those that didnt get a chance during the KS campaign to get in on the act.

Not sure about you guys but I pledge because I wanted the project to happen, I wanted the game to be made. I'm not doing this to feel special.

I couldn't care less if Obsidian wish to allow others to back the project later on. If it allows more money to help Obsidian in any way, I'm all for it. The ultimate goal here is the game itself.

I asked about the possibility to increase kickstarter pledge later on from obsidian a week or so ago. They said they could not promise anything, but were going to look into it, so at least they are considering giving us the same kind of possibility to increase our pledges like wasteland 2 is doing.

I hope they do give that possibility, as I would like to donate more as well, as just could not afford more right now. Even if I am still happy with my singed collector edition box as well, but still.

Ugh, see, I was dying to pledge, I still am, I just had too many financial commitments in the short term so an option to 'continue support throughout development' with the ability to get the same ks tier rewards would be great for people like me, and I think the option to increase pledges throughout development would be great too, I mean, it isn't like anything's going to be getting shipped for a while, so it only makes sense to allow that and rake in more cash, y'know?
