If the goal isn't fully reached on the last day I'm sure they'll pay the rest themselves.

I am really looking forward to this game. Pledged 100 for the premium boxed edition. Also pledged money towards Project Godus, the new Populous game which made its target a few days ago. Looking forward to that one too.

Honesty the way things are going through crowd funding, I wouldn't be surprised if we start seeing publishers go out of business, or at least change their strategies

Y'know - that might not be such a bad thing.... There's all manner of trash being peddled in the gaming world, while brilliant developers and coders are not getting their wares out because they are too small to compete with the big guns. Admittedly, projects like Oblivion and Skyrim require millions of pounds in dev costs, but they're actually worth it. Unlike some over-hyped, non-delivering cack (Duke WHO???).

Now we have the chance to speak with our wallets, and put cold, hard cash in the pot to show our commitment as buyers. Any hardware devs want to try this technique for super-fast Amiga Peripherals...?

^ agreed, we're so close now it'd be a shame to miss the target.

and to those that have pledged, i know these are hard times, but how's about we amigans pledge to the next tier? i'm on 20 and can't really afford it, but i'm gunna go up again to the next tier to show my support

Pledged at the Founder level, 4 days left and 112573 still to get before hitting the target. It's going to make it in my view. With a good surge at the end, it might make the Mac goal too.

By the way guys, have you see the amount of Amiga fans backing this? Owners past and present all telling their Elite stories in the comments. At a few points over these past weeks it was more like being on here rather than a kickstarter site

David Braben was on Reddit and even he got in on it too, saying he still has his A1000 & A3000

Anyways, hope it makes it's target!
