@aggron I think you're able to change the amount of money to 50$ and get the 40$ Reward for it.
And if im not going complete retard here, the way kickstarter works is, that it only takes your money if the goal is reached.

-has 50 dollars to donate
-Kickstarter has rewards for 40$ and 60$

But really, I think i will gladly donate, but, what happens with the money if the funding is unsucsessful? I don't want to donate 50$ to the guys over at kickstarter, i want Catalcysm: DDA to become more freaking amazing. Also, i love how Aavak did the video of the game footage. That was pretty nice. Best of luck to all you kickstarter-ers?
As Scheuche mentioned, you have an opportunity to change the amount that you donate if you want to donate more then your specific tier when you select the tier.

And if not enough money is raised then the charge never actually goes through. Your 50 dollars would end up remaining yours, completely unharmed.

I have already spent over fifty solid hours playing Cataclysm, sometimes to the exclusion of sleep.  At this point, I figure dropping $10 on you guys is the least I could do.  Good luck!

I see good results 2nd day and past the quarter mark :) if we spread more publicity I figure we could hit the goal at at the 15th-20th day.

Hey I found a little typo in the KS page:

But others don't - they like pictures, and animations, and things that actually look sort-a kind-a maybe like the objects their supposed to be representing.

*They're

Good luck! I already told some friends about it!

Whats this about Auckland, NZ at the top right? Are you guys actually here in New Zealand!!!???? In Auckland?
My mate showed me and we are very curious...
What does that mean?

Nice one so far, already almost half way. I've been watching and testing development of this game right from the moment I heard of it.
Writing... I like writing... I really like writing...
Bahh, who am I kidding..
I LOVE WRITING
What kind of writing? Eh, Story writing, short stories, novels, fiction, poetry, fan fiction, fantasy, words, realism, based off dreams, I'd go on and on and on, but the Cataclysm really couldn't care less.

When I first saw the kickstarter it sounded like you were trying to monitize a free game. Now I see you are trying to higher someone to get some work done full time. I'll donate tonight or tomorrow. Probably at the $40 range. How do I send in the diagram of the house I want? What tool do you want it delivered in?

you should probably start a new thread on bay12games about this kickstarter. The Cataclysm DDA is so long many people wont notice it. you might want to put it on some other gaming/rogue like forums as well.

Who is Clever Ravin, the creator of the kickstarter on these forums?
Can you post info about the 2 developers you are working with and what there experience level is?
how long will they work on this?

$7000 is not much of a salary. How long will they work for this? What country is this person in? Is this person an existing modder? You should post the developers bio (you can leave out full names , locations, employer names), but more info might get more people.

I actually did start a seperate thread on the Bay12 forum - people seem insistent on reading it and then responding in the other one, so it keeps getting buried.

Details of the house plan are whatever is convenient for you, basically. We've got a limited enough number of slots that we'll contact you by e-mail afterwards to work it out. Any image should be fine, or even a clear textual description (image would be better).

Clever Raven is the development group associated with the game - It's composed of myself, Kevin Granade, and Ethan Kaminski, who's full-time hire is the primary goal of the Kickstarter. Kevin is an engineer at an aeronautical company who's probably our most dedicated coder and has been working on Cataclysm since back in the Whales days, and Ethan is a freelance developer who's been working in the industry for a while and has contributed to the project for several months - his name is Soron on github. If something happens to Soron, GalenEvil is our backup and he's prepared to take over, he's contributed to the game for a while. I'll be working on getting a full bio for everyone out as an update sooner rather than later, and you'll be able to see far more about all these people (and myself)

$7000 is, indeed, not much - but it's for 3 months of development time, so it's certainly livable. The stretch goals will hopefully get us up to a year if we hit them all, but our initial aims are a bit lower.

Holy crap I did not think this many people would be seeing my silly doodles. Or that they'd actually be part of something important. Colour me surprised.

But that's not why I'm here!

My friend Kelly Tsvahl gave us a shout-out on the news tab of her webcomic Under the Dead Skies!! (don't mind the NSFW warning, that's there for gorey zombie violence). I didn't ask her to do this, but she loves the game a TON and wanted to help share. I thought it only fair I give her a little signal boost too. With any luck, zombie fans can meet zombie fans for both fandom group's benefits.

OK, that kinda helps.  But what happened to TDW??

TDW is still around, just really busy lately. He said he'll probably return to regular contributions once things calm down a bit for him.
