04:24 am: Kickstarter Game Update: Week 6
Looking back: Week 5

Game I Viewed:
404: Law Not Found
Status: 83% funded

In this game, the players are robots whose Three Laws were replaced with crazy commands, and they must do their best to carry out these new directives as they travel through space on a ship constantly bombarded with deadly threats. I am such an Isaac Asimov fan, I nearly bought this on sight just because of the reference to the Three Laws. The only thing keeping me in check at the moment is my budget. I'll continue to watch the project, though.

Thanks for inspiring me to take a second look at 404. I'm not going to back it (2+player game), but it looks like it would be fun to play.

Is anyone adding the messenger bag to their InEx bid? Or have experience with backerkit? I ask because I don't want to add the funds until I see the design, and it looks like that won't happen before the campaign ends, but it sounds as if I could make add-on adjustments via backerkit.

I haven't used that application in particular, but I have backed other projects that allow you to add extras after the campaign ends. I never had any trouble doing it. The main drawback is the funds don't contribute to any stretch goals.

I have the messenger bag included in my pledge right now, but that's because I was assuming we would see the design before the end of the campaign. I'm kind of really bummed that we haven't seen it yet and wondering if I should take that money out of my pledge. It's not like I'm swimming in money right now or something. (I wonder if there's any chance she'll post it tomorrow?)

I've backed one project that has used Backerkit (Machine of Death), and was able to add-on things after the campaign with no problem. Well, it's kind of a problem with YNAB, because I won't be charged until the game ships, so I have a random transaction that has been (and will be) hanging around in YNAB for months.

I'm holding off on the messenger bag (I figure it's just a bag, after all, and I have a lot of bags). I do want to add the metal-finish dice to my pledge, but am hesitating until the last minute.

Nosy minds want to know: which finish?

Set of four, mixed finishes (at least one of each). You know me and dice/coins. :-)

I'm so glad I'm not the only one of us attracted to random shiny things.

The good news is that it's only $25. The bad news is that there may be metal coins available as an add-on. I am ALL OVER those.
