If there will not be an update with the PC-version and other stuff, then we won´t achieve 7 millions till the end of that year.

It is very sad, that they don´t do anything to help that compain ...

Actually, depending on how long the additional crowdfunding remains open for, there's every possibility we might make $7 million by next year.

That's the optimistic view, at least.

It's been interestingly unpredictable since Chinese crowdfunding was enabled.

$6.6 million by the end of next week hopefully!

I Wonder if the Tweetathon hasn't something to do with the slight improvement of pledges from 1st to 5th of April.
Those, who follow the path of a warrior, must be ready to die, in order to stand for one's convictions, live for one's convictions, die for one's convictions. That is how I lived my life.

Some insight here:

I have no idea what the standard monthly salary in the Japanese gaming industry, but while I was browsing Tango Gameworks' recruitment site (Shinji Mikami's studio), I noticed it mentioned a 220,000 Yen ($2000~) monthly salary for recruits.

I honestly thought it would much higher than $2000 a month, since I heard game designers (and programmers especially) have high paying jobs...

So when the PayPal contributes 2 or 3k in a week, keep in mind that it may have payed for a S3 team member's monthly salary. :P ... Maybe.

I feel pretty happy about the slacker backer. Everybody helped raise a quarter of a million dollars ($258,729) so far. I mostly think of the extra people they can hire with the money contributed.

When you're listening to Yu in his last interview and all the statements made around, it's like the purpose of this paypal support is to buy an extra cafe though...

2000$ is what the employee gets but obviously not what the employer pays.

I make about 3000 euros a month in netherlands. but my employer pays well over 5000 a month.

Can't believe we're only $6000 away from that $6.6 million milestone. Fingers crossed for an update after we pass it.

Cool, so what's that, around 300K raised post-Kickstarter? That's great!
