    Some of the tier rewards are so turn-off or downright disgusting I still haven't made a pledge, but I guess I have to in the end ($25).

    Yeah, seriously, what rewards are disgusting? Cooking with Tim Cain? I don't know, he may know some good recipes.

    All the tiers where pledgers get to design content that I have to experience. Sure it doesn't go exactly like that, but it's still a bit disturbing.

    They just name and design the look of some NPCs... Just like in the Wasteland 2 tiers.

    Don't get all bent out of shape about that. They aren't designing any real content. The "designing" of an NPC just means the name, class, and race. The item is just giving the look and lore of the item, and they specify that is has to be "within reason", meaning they can veto or modify the look and/or lore if they don't feel it fits the game world. Custom portrait is just an in-game portrait based on a photograph of the backer (and there's a whole 7 of them). The same for everything else... there's nothing "disgusting" about any of it.

    Everything gets filtered through the team first, and it's all just superficial. Nothing game altering.

    Huh, really didn't think the $3.5m stretch goal was gonna happen. Looks within reach now though.

    Yeah, the screenshot boosted it quite hard.

    This not having money during this Kickstarter is really killing me. I can't even afford to add $20 to my $20 pledge for the expansion. :(

    It's actually been passed now, since there's a little over 100k in the paypal funds.
    Wonder if they're gonna put out an extra stretch goal. Hopefully somewhere reachable, and not something like 4mil.

    I don't think they will. Bad publicity, y'know.

    Yeah, at this point I don't think it'd do much to increase the incoming moneys. Better to just let it ride. They beat every record, anyway, haha.

    No, that Android game console had more than $8 million.

    So not every record.

    There are several other multi million dollar projects that went above that mark, I guess Brother None was implying that it is a record for a videogame Kickstarter.

    8 milion for an android game? Looks like there is lots of money that can be made there.

    Maybe Obsidian should chagne their goals when they finished half of their game :D

    Read Jebus' post again. He was talking about a console.
