I can tell you that only a fraction of the Kickstarter backers converted to our pre-order campaign, and that we have just enough money to get this first version to early access.

Thankfully we've had some good luck on our side in other areas

I'm surprised that only a fraction of Kickstarter supporters have converted. I guess when the first release hits there will be more publicity thus hoping that we get more fans contributing. Anyway great work so far I always be a fan! :mrgreen:

Hopefully when the first version is released, it will turn some heads then more orders will start rolling in.
I didn't even know what was in the splatter pack before I bought it.

I am hoping for a success of scope that Rocket League pulled off.
Maybe it would help to get some youtubers on board. I imagine having piediepie streaming the game would help to boost sales. For these purposes, some "lol so random" moments could be purposefully hidden into the game.

Ha, don't get your hopes up. Rocket league is absolutely massive.

But yes, we want to reach out to various people on Twitch and Youtube, that is part of the plan.

*puts hand up*

I'm more than happy to stream the game and upload stuff to Youtube. I've not had anything fun to upload since Blur back in 2012/2013 and NFS:MW so...

*goes back to playing Rocket League*

Look at the road-holding on these babies. Clarkson would cream himself. :ugeek:

Broscar, your car skin is called Tropical. ; )
