    Once again a subliminal message :
    Please print the game and its soundtrack on a real-life physical material, so I can back $150 for your project !

    And its underlying idea :
    Please give us the official soundtracks - it was really difficult to hack those from Titan Quest, but it's so good to hear them on the train.

      Just curious.

      What if we've already donated to the project? How does that factor in with the Kickstarter versus the donations that some of us have already made? Because I'll gladly donate again, just curious at how this all pans out.

        Aside from myself, I actually do know at least one person that would be very interested in a book about Crate/Iron Lore and how Grim Dawn came about.

        I hope you'll get a reply from one of the developers, but I would assume that they will make rewards transferrable (i.e. they give you a game/alpha/beta key and you can apply it to your own account or send it to someone else). Of course, that's just my silly assumption, I could be completely wrong.

          I think maybe you could watch other Kickstarter project films, only the successful ones. Double Fine's Adventure or Wasteland 2. And then judge then for what they are, do a script, be creative, funny, whatever goes on your mind. Just be sure to make a dynamic movie that keeps people's attention.

            The video we've been working on has a funny intro and I don't think we come across as awkward. I'm used to having to get up and present things in front of people, so doing it on camera is kind of relaxing. I can't vouch for the quality of the video as we're not experienced film-makers and didn't want to have to pay for a professional production company using your pre-order money. ; )

            So, it definitely won't be Double Fine quality and probably not Wasteland quality either, which also seemed professionally filmed or at least done by someone with better equipment and more experience than us. I think it get's the job done though in terms of entertaining and informing.

            The one thing we didn't want to do is just turn on a camera and start talking at people about the game. We know you guys like to be entertained while information is being secretly conveyed to your subconscious.

              We're going to work something out so that existing key-holders can get credit toward higher pledges. It is going to be messy, no doubt but, if the project is successful, it will be worth the extra work of processing upgrades.

                    I feel like I am honing in on a final product but even when I'm finished, I feel like there will still be so much left unsaid.
                    I know that feeling. It means you are genuinely interested in what you are doing which means the result will be great. Don't end up like George Lucas, or we will never seen the final product.

                    Actually, that reminds me, one of the pledge rewards I've been thinking about is a book to tell the story of Crate Entertainment and cover the development of Grim Dawn.
                    As a beta tester of several games, that sounds like a interesting read.

                      Medierra, just be honest. That's the biggest thing. Flashiness is fine, but when it comes right down to it the most successful kickstarters i've seen have been the ones where the people behind the projects have been honest and who obviously have a passion for the thing they're working on, be it film or computer games or board games or what have you. Heck, there's even one for a tabletop mini game that lets you create your own mini mechs out of lego.

                      Word of mouth is your greatest ally. I'm going to pester my friends about this. We've already got a thread about it over on the Runic Games forums (In fact, tho I can't speak for the RG devs, I wouldn't be surprised to see some of em kicking in-I'm starting to see more and more game companies and indie devs especially sticking together and supporting each other, instead of looking at each other as 'competition' and it's so awesome).

                      Soon as your kickstarter is up, i'm all aboard.

                        ...Anyways Bruno you make that book and I'll will probably pledge whatever dollar amount that requires to get. In fact take my credit card now and have your way with it.

                          The video

                          Maybe something like the Braveheart speech...

                          Aye, contribute and it will cost.
                          Leave, and you'll have more money... at least a while.
                          And sitting bored at your pc, many months from now,
                          would you be willing to trade a few of those dollars,
                          and the interest they earned,
                          for one chance,
                          just one chance,
                          to come back here and tell the developers
                          that they may take our money,
                          but they'll never take, our GRIM DAWN!!!

                            A few suggestions for the video:

                            1. Don't complain about the trouble you've had making the game. I know you've had a hell of a time, but it really put me off in the Wasteland 2 video, it just seemed so bitter.

                            2. Focus on what you do best. Double Fine's video was great because Schafer's a really funny guy. Don't worry about being funny if that's not your strongest point, focus on your strengths and frame the video around them. It also doesn't need to be live-action. You've got game footage, you should use it.

                            3. I really dig inXile's "Kicking It Forward" thing, seems like a good way to build extra good will.

                              If I was visiting a kickstarter page with the intention of working out whether I wanted to pledge or not, some positives for me would be a gameplay video to get a tangible idea of what I'm supporting, and a sense of my money being put to good use - that there's a definite advantage for these guys to reach that next tier instead of "well we already have enough money really, but more would be nice".
                              Praise the sun!

                                Cool beans!

                                Heck, I'll probably just pledge up to the next level if you do that. Really looking forward to the final result!!

                                No pressure.
