Pretty sure it was, actually.
Any game with somebody who attacks you with buzzsaws is worth supporting...

You can add additional copies of the game to your package for $20 so buy some extras as gifts.

I probly will, but I'm gonna wait till the last week of the kickstarter and see how my finances are doing then.
Plus it looks like the loonie may be on the rise again... could end up spending a little less to give the same amount if I wait a bit.

No news post about this? The kickstarter kinda needs all the help it can get at this point... and I'm pretty sure most visitors to this site would love to see a new game from the original devs.

I pledged last week, may up my pledge depending on how things go. It's been slower than I thought it would be and they asking for half as much as DU wanted. Yes, we can all up our pledges and "give blood", but unless we can get more people into Overload it's only going to help in the short term.

Yeah, my only worry is that I'm using a prepaid card for... reasonss...
If the loonie drops more before the kickstarter is over it may go beyond the limit of the card.  I just hope if that happens kickstarter gives me a chance to fix things and give them the right amount of money.  On the flip side of the coin if kickstarter counts legally as a donation it may not be subject to sales tax, which would give me some breathing room since I did factor that into my calculations for how much I could give.

Yeah, I'm a bit surprised by that myself, especially given how the reaction to Overload has seemed to be practically universally very positive among the fanbase.

I noticed the kickstarter shot up pretty quickly in the opening days, though, so I'm thinking it might do it again later on as it gets nearer to the end.

I've thought about trying to spread the word myself, but all the places I frequent on the web I could do that at that would really get the needed viewing by the relevant people already have announcements about it.

I personally haven't yet donated to the kickstarter, but I fully intend to. Still 13 days to go. I've got time. :P

Actually, I admit I just haven't gotten around to it yet. ::)

The amount they're asking for is apparently the same as the advance they got for the first Descent.
I get the impression that they're trying to show it doesn't take a huge amount of cash/staff to make a decent game - just a handful of talented people with passion for their work. Unlike a certain other game that is selling early access and charging monthly subscriptions for what amounts to beta testing...

Found this on the Overload site:
Quote
Due to the original contract, the IP is divided between Parallax Software and Interplay.  Parallax owns a vast majority of the visual content and story, while Interplay owns the name and audio.   We all have our favorite parts of Descent and we’ll work into Overload those elements that we think make for a better game. At this point in development, we have been very focused on tools and tech and core systems. It will be easy to drop stuff in, but we need to think about how things tie together…though it would be hard to imagine no Easter eggs.

I'm not. I reckon a large portion of the DU kickstarter was funded by Star Citizen fanboys. And let's not forget about the STFU fans that were around before it became Descent.
