Isaac is doing a great job and everyone who signed up for this campaign did so knowing there was not going to be any kickstarter exclusives so suck it up people.
Its going to be a great game and trying to make yours better than other peoples because you got in first is ridiculous.

“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.


Isaac focus on making this game brilliant not on pleasing the few. You know what you intended to do from the start.

Also I backed because I read your Cones of Dunshire project (and Rahdo ofcourse).

Side note some cool kickstarter goal ideas
1. blacked out plastic baggies for envelopes (just for people who what to reseal the game and start again)
2. Custom stands! (will probably never happen but it'd be cool. You could have ground with little 3D printed grass and mushrooms for heroes and bones at the feet for the bosses)

Your doing a great job thanks happy Backer

Well said.

There's a huge difference as well between stretch goals on a project that clearly is going into KS with room for expansion but no obvious expectations of stretching too much, and your average CMON KS in which at least the first $1-2M worth of stretch goals won't be stretching them at all.

The perfect example is the "stretch goal" they just added on The Others of a music cd/download. They said it themselves: "We commissioned..." ie We knew this was never in doubt, we're simply trickling information out a tidbit at a time to keep people talking about the release.

Isaac, on the other hand, is creating new characters/content as they're unlocked. He clearly has a lot he can do on the game and any extra contribution is gratefully received and will make for a better game for everyone. It's not just one big sales and marketing gimmick.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

I prefer to have as many threads as possible. Why limit ourselves to one or two giant threads when no one reads past the first page anyway? It just becomes like a special club for people who happened to be watching and posted the first couple responses. They rake in the thumbs while anyone coming along later never really had the same opportunity.

This is actually one of the best ideas so far! Would really appreciate this a lot!
