I am truly proud to be a part of this young, fantastic community! Thank you to the team at Cryptozoic for bringing us all together and giving us the opportunity to be a part of something really special.

It will be an honor to see my name on the games Credits as a Kickstarter supporter.

Awesome! Thanks to you, and everyone else, that has been supportive of Cryptozoic and this incredible project.

Yes very nice with 28 days to go, i think we should bump beta up a few months with all this support :).

The kickstarter will slow down after today, unfortunetly. The strongest days in any campaign is always the first 2 and the last 2.

Not necessarily WW. We can help encourage strong pledging if we all do our part by promoting Hex with our Guild Mates and Friends via other games we play and social sites like Facebook, Twitter and Reddit.

While some slow down is expected, if we remain active, we can really make the difference between reaching all of the stretch goals that Cryptozoic has planned.

I was hoping that the Penny Arcade guys would mention it in the news post today to give it a bump... and they exceeded that by making it part of the comic. I think it got a noticeable bump today as a result.

Hopefully they reveal the first stretch goal soon and that may keep things from getting too stagnant.

By the way, how many people do you think have the 3rd panel of the comic (http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2013/05/13) up on their offices/walls at CZE headquarters by now?

It's fun to just watch the KickTraq on this thing:

Really looking forward to the stretch goal announcement.

Lets promote this guys as best as we can and do our best to get the game funded today and start working on Stretch Goals!

Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, your favorite forums, go forward and spread the word!

I would cross09, but this has happened so fast I can't actually think of a way to quickly inform people I might know who might be interested... Facebook is already long done, I don't use twitter... My friend has his blog, but we need time to work on something of decent quality. Other than that, the only option is stealing a blimp and dropping flyers from the sky.

Also, almost 250k already, and over 80% - this thing could be done in the next 24 hours.

We'll have stretch goals on monday I guess since CZE guys are now in week-end

Would that matter? Lots of devs tend to work weekends, and even Blizzard has staff on at all times.

I can see there being someone on hand monitoring everything, at least.

Only 50k to go! I hope to raise my pledge at some point, too- a bit short on funds now. Love the Dungeons and Raids update, and the drafting articles!

CZE is not blizzard, they don't have 11M customers playing on their servers 24/7.

They don't have that many manpower.

And its 2013 after all - you dont have to be in office to post Kickstarter page update. :)

Byt maybe they will want to discuss some last-time changes etc..

If they will post update tommorow it will be great but i can wait till monday if necessarry.

Xenavire

Fireblast, I direct you to Mirri's post, pretty much sums up what I was meaning to say.

Just because it is the weekend doesn't mean you can't monitor things at work. I probably didn't need to mention Blizzard, but hey, it was the first example to pop into my head.

Fireblast

They need to have a final meeting before they post Stretch Goals I guess.
They don't want to mess these

Unless they did that before they took their weekend, and one person is in charge of posting it?

It doesn't sound that unlikely, although I agree Monday is more likely.

Seriously, I've kept one tab open all day today on the kickstarter page and keep refreshing. Its become kind of like counting down for new years for me.

I'm also curious how much they've brought in on the PayPal side of things so far.

Less than $9,000 to go! :D

Kyle, will the devs make 'Throwing a celebration party' a secret stretch goal? You know, sneak out a couple hundred and go party?

I think you should celebrate, at least a little. Buy party poppers at least!

There might be a little celebrating, but honestly, we are working hard on Set 2 right now and have to keep the train moving!!!

As much as I love imagining the look of revulsion, horror and slight arousal at the thoughts...

This should clear it up.

Actually, being from NZ myself, I wouldn't put it past Aussies to party in tomato sauce - and they would say the same of me! But itt's all in good fun, and me and WWKnight are buds, largely thanks to this game.

So having it funded is something we can all celebrate*!


*(Even with tomato sauce.)

I'll b ring the tomato sauce, if you bring the sheep, right? ;)

I hope that wasn't THAT joke, tsk tsk. Anyway, I was born there but living elsewhere now, so sheep is rare and expensive here. But I still get tomato sauce!

I am a true NZ'er at heart though, currently waiting on some Marmite in the mail since it is finally in production again!
