We would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who donated and who worked hard to spread the word about our game and this fundraising campaign.
The sum we raised for this campaign dwarfs all of our past fundraisers combined. We are very happy to have raised this much, over 20% of our original goal of $160k, and we’ll be putting your donations to good use in the year ahead as we hire our programmer for a full 12 months of work.
The most popular perk was “Donator”, at 641 donors contributing $8679 in total. Donors at this level were promised a “Donator” badge on the Wildfire Games forums, appearance in a donor list we maintain on Twitter, and getting added to the list of “contributors” in the game.
This means that the most significant overall contribution came from people who weren’t interested in any physical perk at all!
Perk FulfillmentIn the coming weeks we’ll be working on fulfilling all of the perks. We’ll be contacting many of you via e-mail regarding some details (shirt sizes, etc.).
- A reminder for those donors who are claiming the 0 A.D. Original Soundtrack: We will be offering the soundtrack in both super high quality FLAC format for download and the physical CD. If you would like just the FLAC digital download, please let us know when we contact you. This will help us save money on CDs and shipping and ensure more of your money goes toward developing the game instead.For those who opt for the physical CD, we know you won’t be disappointed. For everyone at this perk level (and above), our composer Omri Lahav is cooking up something special. Should be pretty fun.
Delivery for most physical perks should be between the end of November and the end of December. Of course, we’ll continue to update everyone as fulfillment moves forward.
Thanks again to our 1274 donors, and we promise we’ll make you all proud.
