To be completely honest, I wasn't very optimistic even two days ago when I pledged for the game and the then-current pledge level was at ~14K.

But not even two days later, with eight hours left to go, I gotta say I'm feeling more and more positive about the outcome here. It's already jumped 6.5K in a matter of double-digit hours, so 3.5K doesn't seem so far away... and the number of backers has increased dramatically too; it's not just all of us upping our pledges for the extra board.

There was another game on Kickstarter recently called Corporate America--I didn't back that game because political games aren't really my thing, but it was amazing to watch the last few hours. It really didn't look at all like it was going to meet its funding goal, but it pushed itself over the edge within the final minutes.

Here's the winning update: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/77978264/corporate-ameri...

So, yeah, again, I'm really pumped now and hoping that Formula E will push itself over the edge.

Thanks for your support, Ben.

We're excited for the photo finish. This campaign may have been an underdog, but with the support of awesome backers like you, we can come out on top!

Can I be labeled an "awesome supporter" too?

I was optimistic 3 days ago. I'm optimistic now.

Here here, Tim. Actually, I follow you on Twitter, duder! Your constant championing of the game is what led me here, so thanks!

I couldn't pass up the chance to back a Clever Mojo joint! So, yeah, through the power of your optimism, you have made a supporter out of me.

Nah, you did a good Billy Mays thing, but in the end it was the Oxyclean that won us over. This game looks like it could share the same table with games like Ticket to Ride, Incan Gold, and the like.

If this doesn't get funded, I suppose I'm going to have to back 12 Realms. Don't make me back 12 Realms!

Thank you to all of the backers and all of the folks who helped make Formula E a successful Kickstarter project. Talk about a photo finish. Seems appropriate for a race game, I guess.

With an average of $64 each (pretty high!), it made it by about 5 backers... That's close...

Wow - And to think I was up all night for work and missed all the excitement!

Really glad it's made it - well done and thanks to all those who upped their pledge to make it happen.

It is $64 not just for the game, but to see it published.

I was going to be so bummed if it didn't.
