    I managed to up my pledge literally in the last second, but unfortunately we didn't make it to the last line of the chart... :(

    Wonder how close we would have gotten if we hadn't killed the site in the last few minutes?

    I don't know who posted this, but damn it felt good to have it finish about 5 seconds after the drive. ^^

    OK, fine, I'll stop refreshing...


    You know, Double Fine is probably going to lose like $50,000 by crashing Kickstarter completely with 10 minutes left in their drive.

    Sorry about that, that's totally our fault. I got this snazzy screenshot though:

    I pretty much never post on the forums and I only browse them infrequently but I'm pretty proud that I belong to a community that can come together like that for something we all love. I've been reading OoTS religiously since 2005 and I really think it's something very special.

    Well that new $4000 pledge explains what I was wondering about. I had 3 tabs refreshing to keep track of the total, all three came up with almost $5000 difference at 6 minutes to go. I am saving the screenshots but I can't remember how to access the site I use to load images right now. Sad we still missed out on that last goal, but happy that we made it this far. #2 spot on Kickstarter till Double-Fine ends, only the third project ever to break $1,000,000. The highest non-tech project by an unheard of amount. O-Chul should be proud.

    This was most great!

    I hope that the last chart shows that the last purple line fell to the 1.25k line :D

    Oh good, it's not just me then. It jumps back from 1254120 to 1253509 and "seconds remain...", and logs me out. I can't log back in from there, I just get a "we apologise" message. When I go back to project home or update, I get the right (hopefully) total and show up logged in. Same for everyone else?
    The above post probably made more sense in my head.

    But still, 1.25 Million dollars! You deserve every penny Giant. Your strip is both entertaining and engaging, an inspiration to indepedant artists and authors everywhere (like me!). Hope you keep going for another 20 years, at least!

    Also can't wait to get my hands on the game expansions!!!

    Well I expect zero sympathy, but....

    ...after several days offline organising a wargaming event, I logged on to make a modest pledge, only for the kick starter site to freeze, and 10 minutes later say I am too late (by 5 minutes).

    I guess I won't be the only last minute person to have missed out.

    So I guess the questions are:
    (1) Can late comers such as I, add to the pledge ?
    (2) If not, can we/will we, be able to pay through the nose for the extras ?

    In desperate hope...
