    I'm just trying to figure out what tier to donate, probably the one that gets you the boxed copy. Though the fifteen dollars seems like quite a deal.

    955k :D. I did the 15$, but you have until the end of the kickstarter to decide what tier you want to be at. I think I might go up to 50$ tier because I love to have maps/boxes, and the sound track is going to be great.

    Yeah, I'm also debating tier. I normally wouldn't drop $50 or $60 for a game, but for a high-quality indie title? You bet!

    It really does. I haven't been hyped for a game so much since... maybe the original Mass Effect.

    More hyped for this than I was for Mass Effect or really anything else. The top down turn-based tactical style is just a niche that isn't being filled. I loved Fallout 3, the humor, the world, it was all very good... but the VATS was just kind of like a cheat button almost, as entertaining as some of the animations were, and aside from that the gameplay was first-person shooter. Mass Effect is the same thing. I love FPS gameplay, I don't know if I love it in RPGs.

    When I read the stuff on the kickstarter about not catering to mass market sensibilities, it puts a smile on my face.

    I'd go up to 150 if they add a t-shirt reward. Argh.

    I'm a bit confused about the T-shirt. So now there are two 150 dollar tiers? Do you get them both at 150? Do you have to pick between the shirt and the extra boxed copy and all that when you go for 150? I'm kind of eyeing the $150 tier, but not if it's one or the other.

    I mean I'm all for donating to the cause, but they can only stretch out trinkets that cost them 2 dollars to produce so far :)

    You have to pick which 150$ reward you want. The T-shirt option is a new option. Some people wanted a t-shirt option, looks like its been fairly popular (Either new donations, upgrade donations, or people going from one 150 option to the other option.
