As of right now, there's less than twenty-four hours to go until the window to pledge money toward Double Fine's adventure game closes. If you were planning to pledge and haven't yet, or you have but you wish to modify your pledge, you're coming up on your last chance. In other news, there's a chance that the Kickstarter might just hit the three million dollar mark before the deadline, March 13th at 5:00 Pacific time.

Ladies and gentlemen, the final countdown has begun.

I pledged 100$ already. I'm set.  
I'm actually just as excited for the documentary as I am for the game itself.

I hate that you preempted any and all future Final Countdown jokes.

They said that there's gonna be a livestream of the offices as the countdown closes. Kinda hoping some giantbomb dudes show up, considering how often the double fine guys show up in Giantbomb livestreams.

Less than $50,000 to $3 million with less than seventeen hours to go. Can they pull it off?

I would really like to donate but...uh.. I kind want Yakuza this week and Ninja Gaiden 3 next week along with the Muppets Blu-ray. Tons of stuff I wanna spend money on... not a whole lot of extra money....and I'll most likely be ok with just getting it on steam after it releases anyways.

Same here. I wonder how the special mention in the credits is gonna work. If they actually include all 9000+ of us in there that would be awesome.

When did they change what you get for pledging?

@NekuSakuraba shortly after they broke a mil and the scope of the game changed I think.

I just updated from $15 to $100, cursed late night pangs of consumerism! It was the European Payment Option video that did me in.

Cool, I guess I'll have to make sure to check the page closer towards the countdown to see if I can catch that livestream, I'm pretty satisfied with the 30$ I pledged though. Given the quality of those update videos I'm getting kinda excited about the documentary. I mean, sure, I always knew I wanted to see it, but now I can practically taste it.

It would be cool if they would hit 3 million before it ended I guess, but as things are now it seems very likely so while I'm glad that they're doing well, at the moment I'm more concerned about that other Kickstarter Project I'm supporting (Shameless plugging of the shamelessness+1). That one is a way harder sell.

$5,000 has been donated in like 15 minutes. At this rate, they'll easily break 3 million.

I finally broke down and went for the $100 donation. I'm a sucker for nice boxes for my games...and t-shirts.

Like, 6 thousand to go.

Also, you are a terrible person for posting that song. Not as terrible as the people who wrote it, though.

If we are to believe one of the comments on the kickstarter page, the extra-super-premium pledges haven't been/can't be taken into account. Apparently they're already past 3.1 million.

Wow, with 13 hours to go this will easily break the $3M mark. I wish I could watch the live stream and see their expressions. It would be so damn fun to be a Double Fine developer right now.

Anyone know if there's a graph out there charting this thing? It seems like in the last few hours there's been an influx of pledges.

Do you still see the documentary if you pledge $15 or do you have to give $30.

I could only afford 15 bucks. I reallly wanted to pay 100. But that means no food for a week and I need that to live. Also dammit VGK!

You still see the doc, but at $30 you get to download the series in HD.

I came here to ask about that. Do all 10,000+ of us get Giant Bomb pages?
