    Funding will continue long after the end of this kickstart. Prolly start a new kickstart for stretch goals in a half year or so.

    Guys, cut it out. I've already addressed this kind of behaviour in this thread once already.

    Is that something that happens often then? I've only backed one other Kickstarter project before this, so I don't know that much about how it works. How would a new kickstarter work for those of us who have already pledged anyway? Would they come up with some additional rewards or probably some new exclusive in-game items that we could buy?

    I had a quick look at the Shroud of the Avatar website not too long ago, and I think they had some sort of an online "store" there where they were selling all sorts of in-game stuff. To be honest, I'd hate to see something like that in Underworld Ascendant, even if it probably would help to raise some more funds. They've already introduced quite a lot of exclusive items in the game, and unless you spend $$$$ on it you'll never get them all, so for me that kind of lessens the value of the game - I'd get the feeling that there's always something missing and that I'm playing an incomplete game. I know that they've stated that none of these things are powerful or important, but still...

    Most projects continue taking pledges after the kickstarter ends via Paypal or whatever. I've never seen someone start a second kickstarter to fund stretch goals, and that's a ridiculously stupid idea.

    I don't know if it'd be stupid, but it would look kinda greedy.

    I backed Worlds of Magic (a game in the style of Master of Magic) and that was their second campaign as I had missed the first one. I've no idea if the goals of the second campaign were stretch goals carried over from the first or not, though.

    Looks like we're getting The Underswamp and some nifty boots.

    We will be getting enough stuff to open a small clothing outlet. I understand the motivation and wish them well, but it is getting just a bit ridiculous.

    I would agree that with so many items, it devalues that type of proposition.

    From what I've seen, almost every second run Kickstarters are games or ideas that just fell short of meeting their funding goal the first time around. Usually, they go back to the drawing board, make a demo or new trailer, polish up what they've got, then have another go at it.

    Right, but the references above are about 2nd run Kickstarters for games that did meet their goal, and the 2nd version is strictly for attaining stretch goals. Can't say I've seen that before, but it sounds like it's been done.

    It might've been, but I don't think I've ever seen it. The closest I can remember would be Double Fine thinking about going back to the well a second time because they ended up biting off more than they could chew due cuz they were overwhelmed with the success of their first attempt. They ended up bailing on the idea for the reason I stated above: it'd make them look both greedy and needy.

    I think the Star Citizen model would work best here. They continue to receive donations through Paypal, and fund in more features if they're able. The only problem with that is they don't know how much they'll over time, while the Kickstarter gives them a base to work from.

    I think it's called an "opinion."

    Yeah, and so is *this*.

    So, does Moyer gets zapped for having an "opinion" too? Or only if I cry about it and report it. *gasp* No thanks, Im from the old school TTLG where people could say what was on their mind. If someone got too far out of control, GBM would handle it swiftly, if the crowd itself didn't finish the job.

    Peace.

    I'd explain it to you, Gold, but I don't think you'd get it. The fact you've been warned for stirring shit up, spend a day or so in time out because you stirred shit up, then come right back and stir the same shit up all over again shows me that you're not exactly standing on one of the higher rungs of the swooftness ladder.

    Shut up.

    Can I please just shut up now?

    Because it's an opinion. A strongly worded one, but an opinion nonetheless. It wasn't a direct slight against you on a personal level in any way, just a statement that your idea wouldn't be a good one.

    It's the difference between...

    "Hey, I've got an idea! Blah blah blah."

    "No. That's a stupid idea."

    And...

    "Hey, I've got an idea! Blah blah blah."

    "WHAT ARE YOU SOME KIND OF MOUTHBREATHING MORON?"

    It's an insult of your idea vs. a personal insult against you. Now Moyer isn't going to win any awards for class and tact, that's for sure. But hell, it isn't something worth starting, what, 3-4 days of bickering over. Act like an adult about it.

    As for you getting called out for it while Moyer managed to skip away unscathed, it's probably because he hasn't been in this thread stirring shit up practically since day one. Honestly, you've been kind of a load around here.

    Hmm.. I've been watching the documentary and following the development fairly closely and I don't remember them seriously talking about a second KS for Broken Age. They did end up making a second KS, but that was for another game entirely -- Massive Chalice.

    Yay, lizardmen are back!

    To be honest I think that they should have been included in the base game anyway given their prominence in the first UW.

    They've shifted the enhanced music goal and put it along side the companion creatures goal, so if they can raise $44k in the next 34 hours we'll get both.

    It's possible but I think it'll be a close call. Fingers crossed.

    I just hope they're not pulling a Peter Molyneux and throwing out promises that will be hard to keep. They've passed the funding goal, everything else is gravy.

    I can't find anything about it now, but I remember reading that DF considered starting another KS campaign because they bit off more than they could chew after being overwhelmed by the success of Broken Age's run. They decided against it, and split the game into two instead, hoping to make up the money needed with sales driven from the release of the first half.

    Now I do remember people freaking out when DF went back to the well a second time for Massive Chalice, but I don't think I'm getting my wires crossed here.

    What are Vorpal Bunnies?

    Are they the land-borne version of piranhas?
