Will We Reach the Last Stretch Goal?

Postby Cute_Spide » Mon Jun 08, 2015 6:26 pm

So with only 8 days to go (at the time of this being posted) do you guys think we will reach the DLC goal? I know it isn't too big of a deal, we get DLC either way, but I would love to save some money :p

But do you think we'll make it? I have never encountered the last hours of a Kickstarter (or any Kickstarters before this one), will it really make a difference? As of the last Paypal update, 20,000 pounds have been received on top of what is shown on Kickstarter.

Also, how many of you, if any, are holding out until the last few hours to back? I understand why, what with Kickstarter not charging you until the end (the reason I used Paypal to back). But I am wondering if people are still really doing that anymore now that Paypal is available and takes the money out right away.

(Also, I'm sorry if there's already a topic about this ^^;)

Yes, no doubts at all.

Fear is misplaced in believing otherwise, Playtonic knows too :P

I think we'll get it. It looks unlikely on the face of it, I guess, but I live in hope. I don't think we'll get much more than £2M though.

That is... Until they will create a new strech goal 3 days before the end:

at 3Mil of pledges Playtonic will start development on the spiritual successor of Jet Force Gemini.

ghehe, I would laugh... And be dissapointed in Playtonic the same time XD

Really? Idk, it just seems like the money is coming in so slowly now (I have been stalking the page for days now). They would have to make an average of about 25,000 pounds a day from here on out (tho, that does not include the money from Paypal). From the few days that I bothered to track the money being made from morning to night, they only ever made a few thousand dollars a day.

And I would love to see an in between goal, just to push things along. (There's also a big space between the DLC goal and the last)

Yes. The last day of the Kickstarter is usually as big or bigger than the first day.

Of course we will reach the £2 million stretch goal, as these graphs show:

I just looked again at the most funded video game Kickstarter campaigns and calculated that we'd need 2.739.779.78 pounds to become the most successful video game Kickstarter ever! Considering the push in the last remaining days becomes as big as in other campaigns, I'd say that we're on track!

It looks like E3 and Bloodstained have just really overshadowed the kickstarter. Shame.

I noticed that some people backed out of the VA rewards. I guess that takes some money out.

They need £55,000 more. There's absolutely no way they can miss the final goal.

Even if we don't make it, I'll bet they give backers the free DLC anyway because we were so close.
