Fig Funding Calculations


Recommended Posts

Ok so I just got my daily fix of staring at the FIG pledge total, just shy of 3.5m wow!
 
On the same page it lists all of the different tiers, how much they cost, and how many backers there are at each tier.
So just out of curiosity I whipped up a quick speadsheet to see if the numbers add up. Here's what I got:
 

Tier                                Cost     Qty         Total
--------------------------------------------------------------
Obsidian Initiate                  $5.00      97       $485.00
Digital Download                  $29.00  13,167   $381,843.00
Premium Digital                   $45.00    8663   $389,835.00
Physical Box                      $59.00     555    $32,745.00
Ultimate Digital                  $65.00     948    $61,620.00
Complete Pillars Bundle           $79.00     839    $66,281.00
Early Access + Credits            $99.00     676    $66,924.00
Early Access + Credits Box       $109.00      54     $5,886.00
Collector's Edition              $149.00    1055   $157,195.00
Elite Collector's Edition + Sta  $199.00     792   $157,608.00
Signed Elite Collector's Editio  $249.00     525   $130,725.00
Name a Pet                       $500.00      36    $18,000.00
Create An Item                   $750.00      21    $15,750.00
Create An Item II                $750.00       2     $1,500.00
Be An NPC                      $1,500.00       6     $9,000.00
Portrait In-Game IV            $1,750.00       2     $3,500.00
Create a Super Pet             $2,000.00       1     $2,000.00
Build a Pirate Party           $5,000.00       1     $5,000.00
Top Backer                     $10,000.0       0         $0.00
Portait In-Game                $1,250.00       5     $6,250.00
Portait In-Game II             $1,750.00       5     $8,750.00
Portait In-Game III            $1,750.00       5     $8,750.00
Create a Spell                 $3,000.00       3     $9,000.00
Create an Inn                  $5,000.00       3    $15,000.00
Own An Island                  $5,000.00       2    $10,000.00
 
Total                                     27,366 $1,563,647.00
If everyone (less initiates) bought $20 DLC        $547,320.00
                                                 -------------
Grand Total                                       $2,110,967.0
 
So, to summarize, we have got 1.56m from the game pledges alone, plus if *every single pledger* also purchases the $20 DLC (unlikely to get 100%) we also get an additional 547k to end up with a total of 2.1m... So does this mean that we have 1.4m of things like beta access, additional copies, digital maps etc? I highly doubt it, and if not, where is the extra money coming from to make up the current 3.5m figure as shown at the top of the page on FIG - Deadfire?

Yes it does.

 

*edit* Although the nomenclature used is fig funds.

Is this in writing anywhere? I can't see a source on the site that says as such?

Did you click on the ABOUT FIG page on the site? Or the purple bar graph just above the number of backers? Or the Invest button?

You can see it in the breakdown right beside the "progress bar". There's a graph-like icon, it'll show you how it's split up between pledges and investments.

Yeah, just looked while you were replying to this, I needed to expand the purple bar to see the "fig funds" you were talking about, and yes it states that it includes investors. I had been informed by other posters that this did not include the investor amount. All good thx for clearing this up.

No probs, gave me something to do during my lunch break at work. It's interesting though. Currently on that fig breakdown it shows $1.72M in pledges (sans fig funds / investors). Given that the base I calculated was 1.56m means that people have pledged an additional 160k in extras. This means that not too many have yet purchased the DLC meaning that there should be a fair bit more to roll in from those folks. Noice.
