First let's get the party started and announce our first contest winner:

CONGRATULATIONS TO SLAX FOR WINNING ONELINER CONTEST!

Judges voted him as the winner of the $220 pledge (+$20 addon) for this quote:

Quote:

Enemy torn to shreds by merc auto fire: Makin' bacon'. (Hahahahaha!)

Enemy runs up and pulls a knife: Let's dance, baby!


Slax, you need to get in contact with gdalf, submit final proof of backing and take over your prize!

I think Full Control did fantastically well, the way they showed their love for JA and their willingness to listen to fans. They show quite some talent as well. It's also fair to say that this funding probably wouldn't have happened without the BP stepping up and doing everything you guys did. Thanks for that!

Same here... Beginning of the week I was still doing calculations in my head. How much do we need to average to get it done...

But luckily the past few days have been amazing in terms of pledges.
Especially yesterday breaking the 300K barrier with room to spare.

And suddenly I am very happy that I got Alpha Access.. :rulez:

[color:#990000]Congratulations Slax![/color]

Slax was one of the good guys with a prompt screenshot and everything, and since technically a single entry could be had for $5 and we ended up only announcing the winners after the close of the KS... I won't be asking for another annoying screenshot. Slax check your PMs!

I must say again a HUGE EPIC THANKS to all those amazing people who offered to sponsor BP contests and drive this forward.

And to all those who got involved with them and helped JA:F come to life.

And I am absolutely blown apart about the rally power we got from everyone. Loved the submissions to Bear Memes, loved the oneliners, loved to spam the KS comments with you guys.... freaking awesome days I am not gonna forget soon.

Yeah, glad we proved that JA still has some pretty amazing fans out there.

True story: When the contest started, I had just been accepted into my dream university to do my PhD but with no funding. I was looking at the prospect of being penniless for 3 years with a wife and kid to care for on top of it... 9 days ago on May 15, I got informed I had a full scholarship plus generous stipend for my PhD and well... that flipped my world upside down. So that was when I told myself I'm going to make someone else's dream come true. Pledged 9 times more than my original 'maximum', and I had the finger hovering over an additional amount enough to take it over the top if it didn't get funded by 8 hours to go.

So I'm gonna remember this campaign for a long long time. Great job FC. Great job Bear's Pit. Great job JA:F backers. I'm going to miss rushing into work just to fire up my computer to check the latest total (and then getting no work done at all haha)

Yay! Very Happy
I actually got to see this fund! It was actually bothering me when it looked like it wasn't going to... Then things got really better in the end, and it ended up being so close!
I was actually going to pledge but I didn't know if I could do it via the "normal" system with a UK Debit Card and I'm slightly short-ish on money now... Basically, sorry for not helping, guys. Sad

Awesome story gdalf!

I was just happy I had a reason to tell the missus "Ssshhh! Tis is important, woman!"...

Then she came into the room today while Thomas was popping the champagne and I saw her eyes go big like "OMG he WASN'T kidding (and trying to sneak to play another game)"

Priceless!

I was also really concerned after a few days. I realised that most people simply don't know about this kickstarter. most fans, like myself, probably hardly play (new) games these days so they are not up to date with stuff like that. I only found out about the kickstarter because a mate send me the link on skype after three days.

I helped to spread the word as good as I could but I'm not on facebook/twitter or any gaming communities. so thanks to all those who did. FC actually put a link to the article I wrote about it on their front page but I doubt it was much help.

Well, everything helped, even being there on KS and keeping the place alive.

I bet we would've had a much less enthusiast crowd if there would've been one comment each 10-20 minutes.

Hello my new best friends!
This is my very first post here, although I have been around like.. ten years or so. Heh. Just lurkin' around reading forum and always checked out the newest mods and stuff. You guys rock. Cool :cheers:

And why the hell I finally registered? Simple answer: "Stupid fools push me too far!"

All of these JA:F KS news and debates got my attention like nothing else for years! This is incredible that we finally got this after all of those years of failures! Yay! Full Control have my trust, they seems like nice guys who I could work with. It's really something to say "we go independent" these days. Respect for that. (And no, I'm not drunk (yet) when I'm saying this. Very Happy )

Ok, enough bullshit, let's party! In Finland we have a proper beer for this situation (maybe you knew this already):

http://i41.tinypic.com/2s776lc.jpg

"Karhu" means "bear". Maybe you knew also this already. In that case, sorry for wasting your time.

So, before I fall asleep, I must mention that we'll slowly start to phase out the other open contests. Will take submissions of everyone's footwork to Spread the Word until next Friday or so. Then announce the winners and get them their prizes. We really want to do this BEFORE the survey gets out otherwise is pointless. Might have to speed up a bit but I doubt FC will move on surveys faster than a week.

And for two weeks or so I'll wait for submissions for v1.13 Modders to Backers. Then I'll start adding names to XML and deliver it to Flugente. And you'll be able to hunt yourselves in the game. Smile)

Very true, my older brother who played JA2 along with me back in the day - when I told him about it he said, "Oh I probably don't have time to play. Let me know when it's out"

He will NOT be getting a copy in his Xmas stocking Mad

@gfox: well I didn't spend THAT much, we are saving up for an apartment so I have to be sensible unfortunately. but I was surprised by her reaction as well o.O

@oboli: do you still have the leningrad cowboys beer in finland or has that gimmick ceased to be a long time ago? Kippis!

I also trust FC but with most of us hardcore fans having Alpha access we are in a good position to control them^^

@shanga

You mean like the Wasteland WASTE project? I suggested that on my 1st post here when I went on a big rant at them Smile But seriously, they have really showed they listen, take feedback seriously, are open to new ideas, and after that twitch feed are just a bunch of really cool guys. This makes me like them a lot but more importantly have faith in their handling
