    Game looks great. I will definitely donate when I get paid. Just a quick question; how will you sign the shirt if it’s black? White marker, maybe?

  2. Mark Says:

    Either that or we could sign on the glow in the dark part, I do have concerns about it rubbing off if we do that so we’ll see after we order them.

    How about IndieGoGo?? There aren’t many quality game projects there (I think this was noted in a comment on the kickstarter), and less than the full funding level can still be awarded. Your kickstarter passed $7K… you may be able to raise at least half that through this other means.

    Just a thought.

    Of course, you could do a $5000 kickstarter, use that to get further, and then run another $5000 kickstarter, showing your accomplishments and how far the first round has gone (perhaps video clips demoing rough ports working on your three target platforms). The exclusive awards for your best backers can become more conservative the second time around (or cost more!).

    At any rate, I missed out on a chance to help your kickstarter be more successful.

    However, there is no way I could have brought an extra ~$3K to it, even by raising awareness and excitement amongst my circle of friends in the kickstarter Linux community (probably closer to ~$300-400 tops), who are all eager to see quality games developed natively for us. The end result of that situation would still have been more awareness, but still an unfunded kickstarter.

    So, maybe this can be a blessing in disguise; I’m motivated to donate directly via paypal now, and still tell my buddies, especially my other programmer buddies with kids who are desperately trying to find good DRM-free Linux games that one can play with their little daughters and sons.

    Take heart that there will be ways to distribute if you can finish! Consider the indie developers who’ve sold games via the Humble Indie bundles. It’s clear that their cross-platform ports have been very helpful for those sales. I believe that In The Dark is innovative enough, and could be a high-quality addition to another Humble Indie bundle. Also consider that Desura is a highly indie-friendly digital distribution service for Windows games, and has Mac OS X and Linux clients under heavy development right now (scuttlebutt has it that the Linux client is nearing beta).

    I just wanted to give you some words of encouragement. As rafa has noted above, beer can also help… 🙂

    Thanks! We have been looking at possibly trying it out over there. In the short term though, Paypal and Amazon preorders mean we won’t need to ask for as much in the future. Currently we’ve brought in about $2k, and the fees are lower, about 4% on average vs 6-9% on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo. We’ll see, we may not need anything else if we keep this up.
