Torment: Tides of Numenera Post-funding Update #18

In the eighteenth update to hit the Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter campaign, the team at inXile Entertainment reveals that they're quickly approaching the $4.4 million mark with PayPal donations and delve into some other pledge- and reward-related information. The gist:
Through April 5th, our donations via PayPal came to $160,495, yielding a total of almost $4.35M (and just over 77K backers) through the end of Friday!

As we mentioned over the weekend, we will include all donations through PayPal through April 30th in determining whether the $4.5M Stretch Goal was met. An additional $19,575 was donated since the Kickstarter ended, and we are currently at $4,368,997 as of the end of Sunday. Through the end of the month, we'll be posting new totals on tumblr on Mondays and Thursdays, so please follow us there if you are interested in tracking our progress toward $4.5M. New pledges, pledge upgrades, and add-ons will all count toward whether or not this Stretch Goal is met.

Following Wasteland 2, we set up our own database system to manage backer pledges, add-ons, and such. We'll be leveraging this system for Torment as well. If you haven't already, please register with us at our website.

Over the next month or so, we'll receive the information from Kickstarter regarding your pledges and this information will become available in our system. We will notify you when this transfer is complete at that time you'll be able to see information there regarding your pledge. From our experience with the end of Wasteland 2's Kickstarter, we expect this process to take several weeks we appreciate your patience.

Another month or two after that, we'll ask you for information regarding add-ons you may have selected, get your address information for sending you any physical goods, and ask you any other questions related to your pledge. We don't plan to do this through Kickstarter's system, but through our own. This allows us greater flexibility and to consolidate all of the PayPal backers and Kickstarter backers in one location.
