Only 12 hours remain on the Overgrowth + Natural Selection 2 preorder pack! Look inside for more details plus info on John's beard.

Posted by jeffr on Jan 12th, 2010

We're approaching the last 12 hours of the Overgrowth & Natural Selection 2 Organic Indie Preorder Pack! If you haven't picked up a copy, this is your last chance. You can grab it here.


Please help spread the word as well! I have heard some rumors that John is working on dyeing his beard pink, as mentioned in this video. We're still researching the best way to do this... thanks for all the suggestions so far. Please hit the bearded retweet button below, and tell your friends on Facebook as well! We are so close to the finish line, so these tweets are the most important! The beard button will generate a custom tweet based on the time remaining.

(and Facebook too)

Thanks for all the support so far. You guys are amazing. I am totally blown away by the interest this has been getting and we will repay you not only by making an epic game, but by making a high def pink beard video (viewing is optional.)

Hmm, I preordered 5 hours ago but haven't got any emails besides the paypal receipt. Is that normal?

bleach your beard first (peroxide or an over the counter hair bleach...the latter is probably safer). Once you get it to a light color it'll take the pink color a lot better. :)

Thanks for the tips, I have been growing a backup beard as fast as I can over the past few weeks so hopefully we can test it on me first before doing it on the masterpiece.

I feel sorry for whoever hasn't preordered yet.

I would engage in this whole Twitter and FaceBook thing, but I don't really have a use for it besides this.

Since I've pre-ordered do I have to get slapped when I ask for a release date?

Hehe, you can ask, but unfortunately, the answer is "I don't know". We are working hard and will continue to release our progress every single week until it's done is the best i can do.

Hah I know, I'd imagine if you had a date you'd put it in the info box. I'm patient, plus half the fun is watching the progress!

Please tell Steam how you feel! They will not do preorders for games except ~1 week before release and would certainly never let anyone make a Preorder Pack like this.

We support Amazon and Google Checkout as well. Steam doesn't do preorders though (except 1 week before release).

I generally don't pre order indie games, but you can be sure I will purchase when it is released.

By the way, are you guys accepting donations? I got this game for free because I preordered NS2 some time ago and I would like to support your project since technically none of my money went to you guys.
