If adding more wilderness and companions will make the game more complete, then I'm all for it. I really don't mind having delays, just as long as the game in the end will be awesome. Can't wait! :)

No thanks. I'd rather see the game come out as intended and then put everything else in the expansion.

If you get the extra money you need for it then go ahead but I wouldn't put it as binding as a stretch goal, as I'd rather you divert that money to something else should you find it impossible to do it right.

 

In other words, if you get the extra money and it all works fine then go ahead, if you get the extra money but it doesn't work out then go ahead and use it to implement some other feature instead.  Also, remember, each back you get extra may mean less actual sales as they already get the game. :p I'll be certain to pressgang friends into buying it but I myself am already getting the collector's boxset, just a thought.

I'd be willing to dish out more money, if we get more companions. The wildrness areas are a bonus! When do we get spend more? :p

If new stretch goals were added, how would that work?  Would new KS pledges be accepted then?  My ulterior motive: I didn't hear about PE until after the KS was done, and I'd rather make a KS pledge than just preorder the game  :devil:

I will put down a shed-load of cash if they include a chainmail bikini.

 

I'd pay money if Monte Carlo posts selfies of him in the chainmail bikini.

Anything that will make the game bigger and better would be welcoming, though any stretch goals that conflict with the limited rewards on Kickstarter may piss a few people.

 

This is exciting though!

When will we learn about these stretch goals?

It feels like it's time for them to be revealed, considering the game is planned to release sometime this year.

u can sell early access for 50$, like one other team do and use this money for new stuff like companions/areas. I think this will be nice.

I think having a companion for each class would be awesome. However, I know how expensive that could run.

I'd love to see more wilderness areas and companions. I don't mind if it pushes the release date by a couple of months.

Even though more people wanted more stretch goals, at the end of the day, I think what happened is they had to do what is best for themselves as artists and as a company.

As a "no" voter, I'm glad that, ultimately, you decided against the addition of new stretch goals; now you can march onward to your goal with much more clarity, I suppose :)

As part of the majority that voted yes I can only say... WTF!!!!!!!! I've been "teased" before, but usually I'd be buying you drinks beforehand. That just came out of nowhere. Can we at least get DLC/expansions that contain the elements you wanted to stretch goal?? Problem then is, that none of it is build into the main game and can't be used to fill it out. Companions can, at least, be somewhat added in, but wilderness areas need to be a part of the base game.

I kind of understand, but again, you guys brought up the idea. We WANT to give you guys more money if you're willing to flesh the game out even more. I feel cheated, kinda... Not that I'm "entitled" to any of it, god forbid, but having more Obsidian goodness in this game is just very appealing.

Is there some other halfway measure you guys are taking to satisfy the 77% that wanted to pour money on you?

No DLC. Save it all for the expansion if you can't fit it in the main game. Additional companions, wilderness areas and make an expansion we won't forget. :thumbsup:
