    You should have used a big res of this as one of the rewards for those that give money for the codex statue in the game.

    Codex statue? I want in on this. Considering 5000 / 30 people if each should receive a digital copy that would be 166 dollars per person, which is a bit much perhaps. But I might just leave a small contribution for it and just pledge 15 dollars any way for a digital copy as well.

    The Double Fine Kickstarter is done. The final tally is 87,138 backers and $3,335,265. That's a good point of reference. I think that expecting W2 to get at least half of that is reasonable.

    Yeah, I think around 1.5mil is certainly possible. Was kinda skeptical about it reaching a million a couple of hours ago, but it's already almost at 400k, so it'll make more than enough even when the whole thing dies down.

    I don't speak(or read) Russian, so I don't know that that page says, but you can do it without Facebook, of course. You just need to create an account on Kickstarter. To do that, you need just an email address, but they don't ask for any confirmation so, unless you're prone to forgetting your passwords, you can even enter a bogus email address, although I don't know why would you want to do that in this case. After that, the payment is done via Amazon, so, if you already have an Amazon account, it's very easy. If not, you'll have to create one and then enter your card information first.

    I threw down $100 today.

    In 1980 when I first started playing computer games I always thought that in 30 years the games would be amazing.

    What I didn't know was that the industry would get stuck in graphics mode and the actual game play would stagnate.

    The Dwarf Fortress and Mount & Blade models of funding seemed like they might help, but this kickstarter thing seems even more encouraging.

    So I figure $100 is the least I can do to try to get some sort of true alternative to the garbage that comes out these days.

    I really hope this works.

    I seriously wanted to donate, even before the Codex Statue thing, but being recently unemployed now I'm torn between doing it and saving monies until I get in a better situation :(

    Ah well, I could always look into donating a little bit, I guess …

    I really wanted to troll you guys by vocally refusing to donate, but he won me over with that video and the words "turn based" "top down" and "party based".

    100$ to the Codex and a token payment to the Kickstarter.

    You guys should pull back some money from the Kickstarter and use it to get the Codex immortalized in statue form. The goal is one that we can reasonably accomplish.

    Those petty rewards (miniatures and cloth maps) are meaningless compared to the glory of the Codex.

    Plus, if you donate to the game but don't get a free copy you can always "acquire" a free digital download edition from elsewhere. And that edition comes with bonus edginess.

    A real Codexian would be on the street corner selling his arse in order to not make this post, lad. Go now. Away with you.

    Please, stop with this “I've put 10$ for the statue” bullshit. All your money should go through codex statue found even if it means sacrificing physical goodies. This project needs all your monies, you don't have to secure copy now !
    You can buy a box when game will get shipped and turns out good, you may buy on sale.

    What do you prefer a perk like any other regular backer, or the Codex Troll ingame statue ?

    You have a chance to fund glorious Codexia shrine only now... There wont be a second chance...

    I mean 500 x 10$ is not going to happen, but 100 x 50$ is doable ! Do your patriotic duty !

    Don't those budgets include marketing prices, distribution costs and other stuff?

    Also, we just reached the $400,000 mark!

    I don't know the details, but I'm guessing that the risk/borrowing/debt/interest structure traditional shops use is rather bloated. Also, the game doesn't need physical media publishing or marketing, so the 900k will go into paying everyone's salaries for a year. They won't be in debt, so it won't kill them if it flops...there is only upside 'risk' (profit) rather than the usual downside risk (didn't break even).

    Worse case scenario, it doesn't sell a single copy (not likely), and everyone on Brian's team get's paid from day 1 to when the game goes gold.
