Backers, please make sure you have the correct tier selected for the amount you are funding.

Please read the FAQ how to switch your pledge. We are finding a pretty large amount of backers that have funded at a high amount, but didn't select a reward.

Thank you.

If I understand you correctly, Ryan, people who just pledged a specific amount without selecting a reward, do automatically fall into the category of users who get a survey after the campaign, asking which Add-ons they want to receive, but they lose their option to get one of the "official" Tiers listed in KS, like "Gimme the game", Gimme the box" etc.?

by the way - and completely off topic :oops: - why is greydragon listed as "FORMER Cyan Employee?" :?

I hope this notice will be included in the next update to backers. I'm sure that not all are watching this forum and/or the KS comments.

Btw, good job on the campaign, Cyan. Enjoying this ride very much!

Well, because that's what he was. ;) If I recall correctly, greydragon's last position at Cyan was that of community manager. When MOUL was cancelled, there wasn't much work left.
Since greydragon is once again mentioned as part of the Obduction team, we have him back on board! :D
Though, I can imagine that his position at Cyan depends on whether or not Obduction gets funding...

Hi, Erik!

I'm sure you're right.

Ryan started the hangout by saying he works "for Cyan Worlds or Cyan Inc" and later I think he said something about photoshopping himself into the team photo.

So, greydragon, I reckon you need to update your status when you post on this forum or we could be misled about the status of your comments! ;) :lol:

This has been a concern of mine.

I've backed a total of $250 via Paypal, $75, $25, $150 - I'm not sure how I indicate that I wanted all of that to apply to the art book level. If I don't get that package because of a mistake, I will die a little inside... Ok, a lot.

I tacked on another $75 pledge last night via Kickstarter (Hey, I had no idea that I was already all set to go). I did that because I wanted to inch the KS total a bit more toward the goal, and I want to give my sister a boxed copy, too.

So, how can I ensure that my Paypal donation will result in the art book tier?

Thanks very much :)

Any further information on this? This is what I'm looking to do. I want a boxed copy of the game if I can get it, but I can't afford the $75 tier, so I'm willing to give up the digital goodies. Is this an unsavory loophole? (trust me, if this kickstarter had launched this time last year, I would have pledged $250 no question)



What level are you at? How short of $75 are you?

Cyan mentioned that they will send out a survey at the end of the Kickstarter to ask everyone what goodies they want and where they should be sent to.
I'm sure they'll also send that one to the Paypal backers.

@rooshoes, at the Kickstarter it is possible to make a donation of $1 + $50 for the boxed add-on, $51 in total. If you make such a donation via Paypal, then I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to mention the add-on on the survey.

I pledged $51; I really would like to pledge the $75 level, but I'm pushing my limited finances enough as it is.

I didn't donate via Paypal because I wanted to help fund the actual kickstarter, but I did choose the $1 reward level. I figure at worst, I'll have to switch my pledge to the $45 'digital' reward level and Cyan can keep the extra 6 bucks. Perhaps, if I can afford it after the kickstarter ends, I'll make up the difference via Paypal and work something out. Whoba, I would not want to handle kickstarter cleanup.



Anyone at Cyan know if I can pledge $25 for rooshoes?

In the interest of saving time, rooshoes - Send me a PM, I can send you the money via PayPal.
