Play-testing Beta and Kickstarter Update

Posted: November 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello everyone,

The rules have arrived for play-testing in our forum! Anton is awaiting your feedback so we can get them book ready, thanks to anyone who participates.

Another big thank you to everyone that has contributed to our Kickstarter, which is currently at 95%! This is exceeding our expectations and really a great feeling, and we are working hard to make sure we do not disappoint. We have had a few questions about what exactly a Kickstarter project is, so I went to their FAQs to help answer them:

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.

We believe that:

• A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide.

• A large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement.

Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands.

If I make a pledge, when is my card charged?

If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. That’s why we call them pledges.

How do I know when rewards for a project will be delivered?

Projects launched from August 2011 onward have an “Estimated Delivery Date” under each reward. This date (month and year) is entered by project creators as their best guess for delivery to backers.

Older projects may not contain this information. Check the project’s updates or comments to see if the creator has indicated when they plan to deliver rewards. If you don’t find details, feel free to contact the creator directly through the “Send Message” button on the project page.

Do I have to pay with Amazon? Why can’t I use Paypal? Why can’t Kickstarter just take my credit card info?

Kickstarter uses Amazon’s Flexible Payments Service, which enables our all-or-nothing funding method. No other credit card processor currently supports our requirements. We’re always talking with other companies and exploring other services, so expect more options in the future.

Hope that answers a few questions you may have had. Thanks again!

-Matt
