    Great, so that big stretch goal is to add one additional sprite in 2 or 4 directions to establish epic animation. As long as there are sprites, I don't really care.

    No, that stretch goal is for better art for all sprites in general. He has also mentioned he will try for better art over all, and the ability for the community to easily replace art if wanted.

    What's the ETA on animated sprites if it hits the stretch goal?

    Which version of animated sprites did KOTC1 have? 4 directions?

    Is the 50k goal only your party gets animated sprites? The wording in the stretch goals is a little confusing and it sounds like there could be a mix of sprites and tokens which would look weird.

    He should definitely include some screenshots with the old sprites on the Kickstater page. That might convince some of the people who are on the fence.

    I honestly don't mind the tokens, I'm rather more concerned about UI, story, gameplay, game balance, etc. Those are the things that matter most.

    Yeah, I have a feeling a lot of that stuff is going to happen no matter the results of the KS. Like there won't be a spell shortcut system with icons regardless? I think this is going to be the ultimate extensible 3.5E framework regardless of stretch goals met.

    But I wish him much money since he's been shooting himself in the foot for years prior to getting KotC1 on Steam. And still does by not putting it on massive sale for exposure for the KS. Even Vogel eventually recognized big discounts are the way to make more money, right?

    Don't fundraisers typically show up on the main forums page? No one visits the main page anymore.

    Thought I saw them once in the upper right corner of the forum page. Or at least they were visible at some point. May be remembering wrong. Was just trying to get as many eyes on it as possible.

    I agree about tokens but being "concerned" about story in a Pierre Begue game? Really? What was the story in KotC 1 again? I think it was about going from one great encounter to another choosing your feats, spells and equipment in between. If there was another one i honestly don't remember it. And I don't need to in KotC 2.

    KOTC1 had 4 directions, sprites did look up and down. You can check it here: ( some monsters look up/down is just a 90 degree turn )
