Given the original campaign video, I'm going to guess that, up to King Tier, Cory Jones has a cake shipped to you; for the $250 tiers, he hand-delivers it to your house; for the $500 - $2500 tiers, he also brings ice cream; and for $5000 and up, he actually pops OUT of the cake in a bikini.

Either way, every stretch goal we hit in some way betters our user experience, it's win/win:)

...I need to go immortal or producer, NOW.

But a personal thankyou somehow would be fantastic.

Maybe for the higher tiers Cory will consent to be your "Canadian Girlfriend", and you can call him up and he'll tell your friends you two are totally dating, on the internet.

edit: not sure if the internationals on the board will get that joke, but...

I wouldn't mind a hand-crafted crypto beer to enjoy while playing the game. Non-alcohol version available for the underaged of course.

Explanation:

The idea is that someone (typically a straight American male, but hey, this scenario is adaptable to almost anyone!) feels self-conscious about not having a significant other, and so tells his friends that, oh no, he TOTALLY has a girlfriend, really! But you don't know her. And you can't meet her. 'Cause, uh, she lives in Canada. Yeah.

How about colas for underaged and those who dont like beer? I go cola>beer every time. I hate the taste, so don't jump to conclusions, I do drink sometimes... Once or twice a year maybe?

Ah, that joke makes perfect sense - for NZ'ers we would probably use Australia (it's our canada, wierd people with wierd accents, as seen by the population in general).

And of course, Australia would use NZ! We are just like that though.

Cory Jones will totally be your Australian boyfriend/girlfriend! :D

And yeah, I'll take a lifetime supply of orange soda, please. I already have my freezer well-stocked with the type of rum I like. <3

Sorry to burst your bubble Xena, but NZ is Australias Canada, not the other way around!

And im with you, beer is poop!

Cory Jones will be WWKnight's Kiwi Girlfriend?

He ought to, given how active and enthusiastic you've been about Hex, WWKnight xD

If you do this, I definitely wanna hear how it went! xD Keep in mind though, even some Americans have not heard of "Canadian Girlfriend." One of my buddies told me he was dating again and that he was driving up to Canada to spend the weekend with her. I started laughing and he was confused. I said, "You ACTUALLY have a Canadian girlfriend!" and he just looked at me like I'd suddenly turned pink with purple polka dots. Frankly, that surprised the crap out of me; I'm usually the last one to hear the jokes everyone else has known for eons. I guess sometimes someone else is lowest on the totem pole. :P

Canadian comedy group discusses the Canadian Girlfriend (www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/loadingreadyrun/3643-Canadian-Girlfriend). This seemed relevant somehow.

My girlfriend who lives in Canada is also a song from the musical Avenue Q, which gave us the also delightful The internet is for porn, and Everyone's a little bit racist.

Hm, I totally forgot about the paypal totals.
We're probably way over the 3rd stretch goal at the moment.

I would guess the goals for the commons are 30k each, so 330k, 360k, 390k, etc.

So, we discussed the recently released stretch goals (The man is so excited. Seriosuly, I felt like I was talking to my 7 year old. Even hsi pauses for breath were too short for me to edge in :P), and the community of these forums and my guild, and then before I hung up, I asked him "will you be my Canadian Girlfriend".

He laughed and said he had seen this thread. So I asked again "So, will you?" He laughed and said "Maybe I'll make it a stretch goal".

I GOT REJECTED BY MY FAKE GIRLFRIEND!!!

please, everyone, for the sake of my ego, my id, my sense of self.... PLEDGE MORE MONEY!

There, there. *gives Haagen-Dazs* This will make it all better.
Also, thank you for sharing! Sharing helps you deal with the pain of rejection.

Getting rejected by a streetwalking canadian girlfriend who only wants you money? Priceless... Oh wait, he's got all your money. Never mind.

Not all of it, just half of it :( My actual real life girlfriend thinks ive pledged $250, not $1500 (her assumption, I didnt lie. I just failed to correct her in a timely manner). I dont think all of it will be good for my continued happiness!

WWKnight, better hope she doesn't read these forums! Though if things don't work out, at least you maybe have Mr. Jones as a fallback. :) ((Still, we'll hope it doesn't come to that!))

Half is a lot better than all haha. Still, at least he took it in good humor.
