Previous FF6 Kickstarter *cancelled* BUT new one in the works!!

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry for sensationalizing I guess? I'm still feeling somewhat sensational. But for the sake of everyone I shall hold back on the sensationalism for now.

somebody had to do it, Brandon -- you just represent the little freak-out hidden inside us all :)

They told me that my pledge was cancelled, what are they going to do un-cancel it? I had a hard enough time getting them to tell me what happened to my pledge, I kinda doubt they are going to email me and be like "Oh hey we changed our minds, the project and your pledge is active again"

:tomatoface:

Hey Brandon, remember when katethegreat19's YouTube account was hacked and everyone said nothing could be done about it? But then Liontamer and friends were able to work directly with YouTube to restore everything? Yeah. Just hold tight.

I didn't know that happened and never heard about it. :-o!

So I pledged $50 the day before it disappeared, and it doesn't show up anywhere EXCEPT under my backer history, there's still a link to the project, and it still shows as pledged and active until 8/9/12. So there's probably still a good bit of hope :)

Mine is still listed there too. o_o

I didn't get around to donating and then when I recall that I should do that before it expires.... BOOM there's a problem!

How silly. Hope it works out (and that we can still make the deadline).

I'd be tempted just to mail DJP a $50 cheque at this rate. PAY TO THE ORDER OF DJ PRETZEL.

Same here i really want these physicals to happen i think its an awesome idea. if KS screws it up i hope we can find another way for donations and physicals. It was amazing to see how much people donated as well i was shocked

I'm still hoping to donate too -- I can't remember if I caught last year's support OCR month or not.

It would make me really happy to see remixes on this project entitled "the decisive kickstarter" or "save them pledges!"

even if the most horribly speculated worst-case-scenario comes about, we can just donate to the site anyway..

Oh shite son! +1 ;)

Yup, OCR has at least $50 from me regardless. But I was really looking forward to physicals of FF6 and FF7!

If the issue is Kickstarter, and things end up sloppily, Kickstarter isn't the ONLY crowd-funding service. Extra Credits did one on a non-Kickstarter site when Allison broke her arm, and that was before crowd-funding got popular.

You're right. Indiegogo and RocketHub are quite notable. It all depends on what exactly the reasoning is behind removing the project. I think it's very safe to call the projects disappearance something more than a simple mistake, now. If it's a legitimate reason, the other sites might not be willing to host this project either.

Just saw the update, no news is good news I guess .. I have to admit, patience is a virtue that I'm having less of with this, but I do trust they're doing everything they can. I'm just saying I've been checking this page and the front page like crazy hoping for a resolution with good news ..

But there's a new ReMix so that's good news 8)

Since some reports are coming from people that their donations are still being shown to a currently dead link, I think it's a temporary hold. Something tells me using the name Final Fantasy may be slowing things down. Not sure...

Well hopefully it does go back up. If not we should still get the music so that's good.

And yea I can only see this too on my backer history, it says $250 but doesn't say it's in progress and it the link goes to a page that says it's not available anymore.

At this point wouldn't it just be easier to start another fund raiser but this time do it thorugh the traditional venues that OCR has always done? At least people are aware now. That way stupid kickstarter and their crappy customer service go bye bye and then people can donate directly to OCR. That works right?
