Checking in again! We're gonna be running two streams this week, one to show off our latest single player build and another for some live multiplayer sessions.

I'll be back to post when, but we're always on Wednesday at 6:00pm Pacific US time at own3d.tv/cadenzainteractive.

Right... I don't understand this "kickstarter" deal. I get that you need funding, but just because you don't reach the target by the due date..... what happens then?
Those people that had pledged money.... what happens to that money if the goal isn't met?

As someone who has donated I'd like to know the answer to that too, since you do say that the game will still get finished and the tools will still get released on a delayed schedule.

Sorry it took me so long to respond to you two! If Kickstarter fails, you do not pay a cent. When you pledge to us on Kickstarter, you are authorizing Amazon to bill you for your pledge amount on the date of the project's end, if and only if we have the full goal amount or more.

In other words, you owe nothing unless we succeed!

We've also released an alpha demo: http://www.gamefront.com/files/21916917 ... oSetup_exe

No tools, but a quick playable of what the game is capable of. Single player, co-op and multiplayer all there for you. <3

I thought it would pay immediately.
But, that prepaid card should still have enough money on it. I just need to remember not to spend any more. Lucky I chose to use those ten dollars of IL virtual cash... :D And if it doesn't end up getting spent on kickstarter I can use it to buy the game in October. So either way I basically have it. 8)

In the meantime I'm checking this out. Immediately. My library book can wait. No matter that I can't put it down.
It's actually an oddly similar story...

It's too graphically intense for this laptop on default settings... and the options menu crashes so I can't turn down the graphics. Oh well. Kind of expected... The starting room looks like good work but I've already seen that :P.
I could still bugtest a little bit on the low framerate if I didn't keep bouncing off the geometry and killing myself :D. Is there some way to turn down the graphics settings from outside the game? Like some config file I could edit? I've looked in the game directory but I haven't found anything.
