I don't want Amiibo support (E.G. Mario Amiibo to unlock a Mario hat). I don't collect Amiibos and I don't want to buy them just to get exclusives for the Wii U version. If Playtonic were allowed to create their own Ukulele Amiibo, then I'd buy it of course, but I really don't think they'd be allowed.

I also don't want loads of people voicing characters etc. as I feel it might take away from the experience. I'd love to voice a character, but I know having my voice in the game would make everybody throw up in disgust the moment they heard me attempt a mumble...

I voted for a physical copy, artwork and documentary. :)

I voted collector's edition, documentary, and N64 cart for nostalgia's sake. I don't care about the Amiibos either. They're going to sell out in 12 seconds and then be $400 on eBay anyway (I guess I'd probably get one as a Kickstarter award, but still... it'll cause too many broken hearts).

I would love all of these as rewards (except the Voice one).
Problem with the current amiibos is how crazy they sell out. I would worry about amiibos for this game to sell out too. Maybe by the time this get released it will be more controlled and managed. If not then its ok with a figure like the Majoras Maks Edition one. (which also sold out like crazy)

I voted Name In Credits as none of them appeal to me.

I wouldn't want an N64 cartridge cause whats the point?
I wouldn't want any toys, teddies, amiibos etc cause im an adult and don't collect/play with toys.
Wouldn't want a poster but wouldn't mind a signed photo of artwork.
I don't get collectors editions cause i like all my cases to match on the shelf.
The voice over would be fun but i get what everybody is saying about it being too much and maybe taking away from the playtonic/rare experience.

I'm really struggling to think of anything i'd like as a reward...

It's interesting to see that the top 4 of the current votes are all material things (cardridge, hardcopy, plushy etc.) whilst personally I find the non-material things more interesting (voice over, name in credits) as I know in a couple months the object is going to end up in a box or on a shelf, never to be looked at. The non-material things last 'longer' as it will become part of the game, that may be played by anyone for a considerable time.

I voted for collector's edition, artbook, and N64 cartridge. The rest of the Kickstarter rewards are also nice to have, but those three are the most important rewards of the bunch to me.

I voted soundtrack, artbook and plushies/figures. I like listening to video game soundtracks, I like looking at the concept art behind the game (as well as high-quality renders of the game's assets), and I like having plush toys or figures to sit on my shelf (or wherever, I don't actually have shelves...).

If I could vote for anything else, I probably would have added replica N64 cart and collector's edition of the game, but those are somewhat lower priority than the three I cast my votes for. Would still be awesome to have them though.

N64 Cartridges would be fine.
Collector's Edition would be fine.
Soundtrack would be fine.
Amiibos would be fine.
Artbook would be fine.
Behind the scenes would be fine.
Plush/figures would be fine.
Name in credits is eh. I do not feel like I would deserve it no matter how much money I toss in. I guess I would not mind and it might be kinda cool to see my own name in there.
Poster is eh. I never liked posters much, and I have nowhere to put them. They just end up all rolled up as I got them and tucked away somewhere.
Voice over is a no-go, in my opinion. I liked how they did things themselves, and I would like to see them stick with doing things the way that they did it.

I voted for plush/figures and amiibos. The game seems, to me at least, very character dependent, so I think these things would best express that. Assuming that amiibos means that there will be amiibos from Project Ukulele, not that it would support scanning other amiibos for extra stuff.

Main thing that's needed- Special Edition/Hard Copy.

And yeah, I dont care for Amiibos. No need to add Amiibo support and alter the game in any way.
They're just expensive things that would just disapear SO QUICK and then will be sold for way too much money online. Amiibos are silly in the long run.
Things like Hard copies, Artbooks are the best way to go

I voted for Documentary, a classic cartridge, and Plushes. Because I'm a sucker for plushes.

I just want to see a documentary, but I guess looking at it now a Physical Release is really important to me. But I also always guessed that was a given.

What are the rules on Amiibos?

Seeing Splatoon ones was great, but it made sense, seeing as how it's only coming to Wii U. Maybe Amiibos are for first party games only.

I voted hard copy of the game as my first preference and amiibo as my second. I don't even care for amiibo functionality; I leave them in the box anyway.

I chose the name in the credits, the N64 cartridge and the physical release because they're for posterity - they're special to the ones who paid for them.
