Elysian Shadows Kickstarter Announcement

Postby Falco Girgis on Thu Jul 17, 2014 2:27 pm



Our campaign is launching about 2 weeks, and we're working our asses off nonstop preparing for it... We wanted to do something special with this video, and the fan response has been great so far. Thanks, guys.

Much congratulations... it is almost up to 30k at the time of this post. :worship:

FYI, take this for what it is worth, but I wanted to share in case you wanted to respond:

http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/ ... ?context=3

I responded as best (and accurately) as I could, so sorry if I misspoke. I think it may be a bit of a valid point to explain what the money is needed for.... As a long time follower, I get it... as a random forum person with a hundred links being shared and being introduced for the first time... I could see the point.

Dear god, they actually ported ES to a piece of celery!

I've just realised that after listening to the soundtrack on the Kick, I've been humming the main theme of ES throughout the day. If that's not good subliminal advertising, I don't know what is.

It's been incredibly difficult not to select the backer level where I can come stay on your couch for a few nights. The mischief and debauchery would be legendary.

I'll just have to be content with my limited edition...

Hello!

Isn't there a way to give money via PayPal for the Kicksyarter?
Also, I think I heard or read that you were thinking of adding the engine of the game as a pledge.
I would definitely be ready to pay for that (and make my own rpg's for Dreamcast).

Best!

Oh by the way, I got you newsed on www.jeuxvideo.com (biggest French website about video games)

There is no way officially to give from PayPal, it's Amazon Web Payments. I've seen some kickstarters after they hit the goal to open up PayPal and count it towards the tiers because after the goal, the project is funded. It's risky to do that prior to the kickstarter success.

There are other ways to give through KickStarter. Double Fine did it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbXygxSObUQ

So question, how do those add ons work? I went for the dev notebook add on. I added the amount to my pledge, but how are you going to keep track of who wanted what add ons? Is that just part of the survey?

I'm a kickstarter n00b.

They're probably just focusing on getting funded at this point. I'm sure, if/when they do hit 150k, they'll be more than happy to print out the list of donors and calculate one-by-one who gets what reward.
