Each page also contains a Q&A about this new stage of fundraising for the game's development.

This is not a pre-order. There won't be any refunds if the game gets cancelled, which might seem unlikely, but is possible. Same goes for the goodies.

Are you sure? From the images and descriptions they look like the same ones available from the Kickstarter.

So i guess we cant expand our original pledges like i thought we could? You would have to "repledge" to get a better reward of choice.

I just had to spend £200+ on a new laptop. Thank God it's running for over 100 days. Will be spending a lot on this Paypal option in the next few months. So happy to add to my original $800 pledge!

Latest Kickstarter update says there will be upgrades down the line for KS backers after they send out surveys:

Surveys, add-ons and upgrades
Surveys are not quite ready yet, but they will be going out during this Slacker Backer campaign. Once the survey system is up and running, add-ons and upgrades will be available for existing Kickstarter backers. We will of course keep you posted here on the Updates page with all the developments.

I can't see anything new, just what's left over from the Kickstarter. I will be waiting until the very end of December to see how much savings I have accumulated by then. Fingers crossed I will be able to throw another $5500 onto the fire for the sculpture and jacket. I don't know though, I will think about it because that would mean I will have given this project more than enough money.

What I meant was, they are new offerings. Before you couldn't buy them separately, they came as a part of a tier. Now these are new stand alone offerings.

Also when I wrote CD I meant Soundtrack $13.

Right now i'm thinking of getting an additional t-shirt. That way I can get one in Medium and one in Large, and see which size fits better, and then keep the other in mint condition for my collection :)

Incidentaly, for people who are asking why we can't just donate money without a reward...although I understand that you'd rather the full amount go to the game than through a tshirt, tshirts are stupidly dirt cheap, especially if that ends up being the final design which looks to be black with white text and logo. You could literally pledge the amount you are thinking about giving the project in tshirts, and the money will go into the game, and in a way you could sell these shirts back later down the line to fans who don't have money right now. As long as you don't overprice them, then you recoup some of your money, but the main factor is the game got better and bigger because of it \:D/

I might be open to that suggestion. If all goes to plan, I will have x3 of all of the " smaller" stuff like capsule toys, t shirt, art book etc. I doubt I would have a problem helping out other fans who wanted these items and perhaps didn't get them. If I get the crystal statue and jacket before Christmas then all is good.


Also, the signed statue is sold. It still shows on the site, but you need to click into actually buy it to see that it is currently out of stock.

I feel guilty that was I was not able to donate in the kickstarter. My mother is struggling far more than I am at the moment and lately I've been giving every penny I have to help her out. But I'm glad this second opportunity has presented itself, with Paypal no less. I'm hopeful now that I can cobble together enough funds for at least a physical copy before this expires.
