We’re excited to announce that we’ve been accepted into the Kickstarter program. Host to such great projects as “Indie Game: The Movie” and “Remade“, Kickstarter is an online program that provides “a new way to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors,” and is “powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands.”
And what better project to test out alternative game funding than with Delve Deeper 2? With the Delve Deeper 1.3 patch forthcoming, we’re also taking some large steps towards making Delve Deeper 2 a reality. With a Kickstarter funding campaign coming up soon for the game, Delve Deeper 2 is still quite a ways off. But once our project is up, we’ll be offering Delve Deeper 2 pre-orders, limited edition schwag, and all sorts of other fun one-off gifts and honors to our loyal, donating customers. Here’s a list of some of the stuff we’ve come up with so far, by donation level:
$10-$25: Your name in our special “Thank You” website, and in general, our everlasting thanks!
$25-$50: You’ll get a closed beta invite to Delve Deeper 2, your name in our beta-tester credits, and the full game when it’s done (as well as your name in our website, everlasting thanks)
$50-$100: You’ll get everything above, with a Delve Deeper Collector’s Edition (DD 1 + DD 2, a CD choc full of concept art) bundled in the “Delve Deeper Dirt Bag”.
$100-$250: You get everything above, plus you get a tshirt, and can name an enemy or a relic. Additionally, for every $10 after $100 (up to $250), you get a unique item in game.
$250+: You get everything above, plus a limited edition piece of art from Delve Deeper 2, signed and numbered
$1000+: Everything above, plus dinner and a game night with us if you’re in the Chicagoland area!
We’re looking for your input to come up with more/other ideas for donation level gifts, etc, and we’d love to hear what you guys have to say! Leave your thoughts in the comments, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
