With 33 days left to go, and already hitting over $700,000, Double Fine is doubling up on their donations. Donating a certain tier will get you different benefits. the minimum of $15 will get you the PC game in it’s entirety and any DLC, and the premium if $150,000 or more, Tim Schafer (that’s me) will give last four remaining Triangle Boxed Day of the Tentacles, in original shrink-wrap.” (Limit of 1). To see the full items offered check out the Kickstarter page and the Double Fine website.
Almost three weeks have passed and the money keeps rolling in for Double Fine Adventure on Kickstarter. Hitting over sixty five thousand supporters and over $2.2 million, Double Fine Adventures is well on it’s way to create a great game since the additional funding will give the developers deep enough pockets to hire voice actors. To increase the donation incentives, Tim Schafer has added more rewards to the already long list. For $30 you also get the digital soundtrack of the documentary, for $100 special edition box containing both the game disc and a DVD or Blu-Ray of the documentary, and The Double Fine Adventure Book ($60 reward tier for a digital PDF, $500 reward tier for a physical copy). There’s only 15 days left of the Kickstarter donations, let’s see if we can break the 4 million mark by then!
