When you have a chance, can you please upload a Linux version of your game?
Thanks

Your Kickstarter is looking great.   :smiley:

But will the game be DRM-free or steam-only?  You need to add that information to your page.

Great that the page is up!
A few remarks how it could be improved:
  • The video: You come across as likeable authentic. However, I have problems understanding you. I'm not a native speaker and I know that sometimes have problems understanding English speech, but I'm sure I'm not the only one in this situation. Please consider your audience and either have subtitles or make sure to record the video with better sound quality.
  • The pie chart is extremely low quality with lots of artefacts. Make sure to upload a file with better quality, now it looks kinda unprofessional.
  • Rewards: The order of items in 15 and 25 tier is mixed and I don't understand the difference between the two tiers (why would I pay 10 GBP for a text?)
  • 75GBP and onwards: Don't write that something will only apply for the first backers. Either make it for all of them or limit the amount of people who can back for this level.
  • Usually, the soundtrack would be included in a much lower tier. E.g. game is 15, game + soundtrack 25

I just want to echo this: as a Canadian, I usually understand most English dialects with no problem but was only able to understand about 2/3 of what was said.

Thanks guys...

I can't do much about the sound but I have added subtitles (English)...

I have also redone the pie chart..

Hopefully this is an improvement...



The tiers are being looked into and will be amended before we launch.

cheers and thank you, your comments mean a lot to me  (nod)

On the draft campaign page, I don't see a link to download Case 1. Is this intentional ?

Just watched your video above, long time mate. I still think your best game ever is "The Condemned", especially the writing, but I will give this new business a chance!
