    672K...

    Slowed down a lot overnight, but moving at a decent pace now for the second day.

    Pretty hard to see any way we don't hit the 900K mark.

    the most important thing is to get into 900k, also remember Schaffer was many times during kickstarter a guest in gametrailers etc, it helped a lot

    I think this is time for some update from Fargo

    TBH, it's not that unrealistic to think we'll hit $2 million.

    I mean lets say we hit 900k at the end of tomorrow (we should hit that tomorrow morning, but for the sake of argument). That leaves us with 32 days left

    2,000,000 - 900,000 = 1,100,000. Divided by 32 days. $34,375/day is all we'd have to get to hit 2 million by the end of the Kickstarter.

    We're getting like 15-20k an HOUR let alone a day. It'll slow down for sure, but I think 2 million is definitely doable.

    I'm with you on that one.

    On top of that I'm looking forward to seeing how the whole :"by gamers for gamers" thing is going to work. :)

    I could see it slowing down to about 20,000 a day. That would put it at about 1.5.

    However, there will probably be a few other spike periods, as it gets publicity that strikes a chord somewhere + the final day. I could see an extra 200-500k raised through spike days.

    2 million is doable.

    Double Fine raised like 500-700k in the last 3 days too, didn't they? I would expect a similiar spike near the end of this KS.

    I think that 1,5 million also would be amazing success and enough money to make big nice world as Fargo wrote

    I wasn't expecting it to climb this fast. Holy shit! Think about how awesome the game would be with $2,000,000!

    750,000.

    Is it too ambitious to think we'll actually hit our 900k goal before midnight CST? :-o It's 4:15 PM now. 7:45 to go.

    I would like to add that the video they made is fucking hilarious. How long until it hits a million?
