Missed the Kickstarter?

If you missed the Kickstarter and are looking for a way to support us, we've just added several new options using PayPal and Humble Bundle.

CLICK HERE or use the handy Support Us link at the top. Either one is fine, they both go to the same place.

Don't let them down!  More Money = More Gooder.

It's too bad I missed your Kickstarter campaign and it's too bad only the $25 was available here later! Now I wish I could've bought the version with the sound track.

Look on the bright side! You can give that copy to a friend and back the higher tiers (such as the Box one)!

I don't have any friends. :P I hope I can just buy the music for 10 $ because I don't have much money unfortunately.

Here's the website for the composer, Steve Kirk. Maybe you can ask him if the OST will be available for download or any other format: http://www.stevekirkpop.com/

I didn't realize Steve Kirk was composing the soundtrack. I love the Club Foot Orchestra!

Thank you for the link! I hope he can also provide track, liner notes and printable cassette tape and CD covers.

Since I only found out about the kickstarter after it was already funded; this is perfect. $35, because gotta have that soundtrack too.

I'd love to support this project, but the 'handy-dandy widget' just doesn't work, neither on my home computer, nor on my work computer, nor on my Android phone. The buttons don't react when I try to press them, they're greyed out. No error messages or explanations of any kind. I've checked that my credit card details are correct, and (this apparently being an Amazon solution) I've ordered from Amazon a number of times in the past with no issues. I'm not planning on getting a Paypal account any time soon, so this leaves me pretty much stranded. Hope something can be done about this. Am I the only one with this problem?

PS: I love that you guys are doing this game, verb menus and all. Can we hope for further old-school adventure games after this one has been released to great acclaim and you already have an engine ready to use? Also, this is just my personal opinion, but for me the pinnacle of the genre was Monkey Island I + II and Fate of Atlantis; the games that followed represented a decline in quality (with the simplified user interfaces and huge clunky fullscreen graphics - the cinemascope look of the older games was so much more cinematic). I'd love for you to make a game more in the style of those games (doesn't exclude having multiple playable characters, etc).

That being said, I have a great feeling of nostalgia for C64 style graphics and look forward greatly to playing this game when it's finished.

What browser and OS are you using? Can you post a link to a screen shot?

Bruygush Weepthrood - Feb 25, 2015 at 11:04
Win7/Chrome/IE, XP/Chrome/IE and Android/Chrome all fail. Will try to upload a screenshot later. Basically what happens is that after I log in to my Amazon account, the Pay Now button is completely dead (text is gray). Like I mentioned above, I've checked the credit card details, and I've used the same card to order from Amazon before.

I missed the kickstarter, but I bought Thimbleweed via this website & humblebundle.
Never too late to support what's going to be a fantastic adventure game by the master.
