All of us at Emergent Games are huge fans of presents Christmas, especially when it comes to gift giving and Secret Santa festivities.

Since the Kickstarter campaign for Fireteam Zero is being planned for a December launch, we thought it would be awesome if one of the ways to pledge included giving it as a gift.

The idea is to provide a Gift Card that would register someone else as a backer. The Gift Card itself could also be printed so that they can see what they are getting.

The recipient would get the same updates and rewards as if they had pledged themselves, the only difference is that you did it for them!

Is this something that you'd be interested in? Take the poll below and let us know!

Yes! There should be an inexpensive pledge that lets me gift any pledge level.
28.6% 2

Hi Mike,

Great idea. BUT. When is the expected delivery date?

I don't see the point if the game delivery is somewhere around August or even later. Not much of a Christmas present if you are receiving it 8 months after the fact.

Look forward to seeing (and probably backing) your project

Delivery will definitely be in the Summer, so July/August is likely.

We figure there will be two schools of thought on this, but we're not sure which is the most common:

One: The gift is the game and should be there at Christmas

Or

Two: The gift is the pledge, for someone who would have liked to participate in the KS

We're not sure, so hopefully this informal poll helps us decide

July/August* is too late into 2014 to be giving as a 2013 holiday gift.

I would be more open to the plan where the recipient receives the game in December 2014, wrapped, along with a gift tag.






* which, in the world of harsh kickstarter realities usually means "October" or sometimes "February, 2015"

I shuddered when I read this. I think we're all finding out more and more that that are no guarantees in the world of Kickstarter.
