Funding enters the nail-biting final lap!

DING DING, friends! The bell's a-ringin', and that can mean only one thing -- there is one lap to go in the all-important, Olympic-style fundraising race we've set for ourselves to fund and finish Tasty Tasty Grandpa


First up, we really want to say a massive THANKS to everyone who has pledged money to the project so far. We're stunned at the generosity of you fine, fine people. At the time of writing, we are at $4500 -- almost at our core goal of $5000! 

We now announce... THE STRETCH GOALS (and a project update)!

Stretch goals are what we promise to add to the value of the project and to your contribution if we can hit higher targets than the core $5000 goal. This is not about greed (since the core team members aren't getting any of the funding money -- it's all going towards hiring an extra programmer!). Rather, it's a way to hit higher targets of quality and features in the game. If we can reach the $5000, we'll be stoked. But if we can make more, then all that extra money above and beyond the $5000 will make the game EVEN BETTER and will be mighty, mighty appreciated. You can see the new stretch goals in a Pozible campaign update here. And if you're a first timer to the project, we welcome you! You can read the full description on the Pozible campaign main page here!

So, as we hit this final week of our funding campaign, we ask you (we down-on-knees beg you!) to please think about contributing if you can, and to share the links across the world with people who might be interested in the project. A lovely bunch of independent game developers trying to catch a break will be so grateful, and imagine the warm feelings of human kindness you'll experience, just like all the backers listed below!


(thanks so much for already pledging to help our game live!)
