Default This is the face of Grim Dawn contributors

JH, the mysterious man who pushes buttons on Paypal. Apparently his fervor knows no bounds. This is the way he turned out after donating to Crate Entertainment. This is not safe for work. Profanity and vulgarity. In other words, it's Penny Arcade.

I see a trend here.

I fail to see the connection to GD, except that preorders and donations are currently going through paypal.

I think it's a little light hearted teasing aimed at the folks (like that particular fellow from Penny Arcade) who have ponied up money for a product, sight unseen, because the mere hint of the possibilities that product presents make them all froth at the mouth.

I for one know that soon as my finances get better, i'll be getting the premium donator package 8)

My addiction to action/rpg's is saddening in it's epic proportions. They're like heroin to me. Crate? No boxed version needed, just download this game straight into my veins when it's done, kthnx.

That seem logical.

At any rate, people who are donating truly believe that this product will fly based on Crate's past creditials (ILE). If it were some unknown source then many of us would be hestitant to put forth any sort of payment.

Oh, I only posted this because Jerry Holkins, AKA Tycho, made a large donation to Crate a couple of days before this comic about his boundless fervor was released. If you look at the Grim Dawn front page, it is the top entry in the Updates column.

Finally - we were totally floored by the incredible donation from a certain gentleman of Penny Arcade fame. Truly you humble us sir!

We don't know who you are exactly, but we felt the earth tremble a little bit when you hit that donation button. You are a king among men!

- Ok, as it turns out, maybe we do know who you are ; )

Yeah, that's not fun. Especially when you get to do support on the phone for someone who's calling about their notebook from the bathroom of their home.

Oh yeah, he had Parkinson's as well. Talk about difficult call.

You can atleast stop the pain when you disconnect the call, try working in a store with people smelling like 2 weeks not-bathed-or-showered asking info on a computer, when all you can think about is advising a good shampoo.

People, they are pigs...
