Nin is at it again!

Anyone with Facebook should go like their page so we have a chance at one more level!

Edit: Actually, going by the standard progression of every 2.5k extra backers, that should be 15 mega dungeon levels... Because 14 was at 75k. Not sure if that was just a typo/mistake on their part, or if they're not counting all those PayPal people, or what.
That's what I was thinking too! Since the KS backer total was about 74k and the Paypal backers pushed that over 77.5k, that should have added 2 more levels. It was level 13 when KS ended. I'm sure someone will correct them though.

Yeah, that would have been a good addon. I would have liked a cloth banner of the Endless Dungeon image too.

Yeah, they must have been partying hard last night! They should send out an update soon though with the current total and saying thanks again to all backers.

Just trying to help out! Acleacius also didn't sound sure about the Paypal money being included in total.

I don't understand why they don't factor in the paypal numbers.

But, I also don't understand why people are donating via paypal instead of just going through the appropriate route of kickstarter and getting rewards from it.
They do include the Paypal numbers in the total, it just doesn't show on Kickstarter.

And you can donate via Paypal and still receive the same rewards as those on KS. Check out their page and you'll see the tiers that are available.

...falling short of their final $4 million stretch goal...

Yeah, the total on their KS page fell short of $4 million but adding in the Paypal backers it should be over $4.1 mil. They seem to still be taking Paypal backers too for those who have been under a rock and missed the KS campaign.

13's still a nice number. If they could somehow play off the idea of how, in RL (w/o breaking the 4th wall), we don't go to the 13th floor, due to some giant horrible, adventurer eating boss down there, so much the better.

Sounds good to me!

Does anyone know what the final number of levels is for The Endless Paths?

There were the original three, two for the 40k+ Likes on FB...
There are currently 13 levels I believe including the one additional from FB likes. They only got about 24k Likes on their FB page. The 40k+ Likes on the KS page were only for the PE KS page and not Obsidian which I don't think counted.

I am sure there were enough Paypal backers to increase the number to at least 14 though because only 1014 more were needed for the next level.

They just want to make the best game they can, and the more money they get can help them do that. They're excited to do it just like the backer are excited about the final product. I don't see anything wrong with it.

Them adding additional levels to the dungeon was only based off number of backers, not money.

Yeah, they're supposed to keep their Paypal backer page up for a few more days at least so you can back there if you want. Now you know what the conversion rate is so you don't have to worry about that anymore.

I only want local pricing - is that a big fucking ask?
No, I think it would be a good idea too but KS could do a lot of things to improve their site. I was just wondering if you knew about the PE before today because it sounded like you didn't have much time to decide. No biggie though, the game will be available for sale once it's finished and they may even keep Paypal open for those who missed the KS campaign.

Edit: Actually it looks like their Paypal site is still up! You should try there if you got Paypal.

What were you doing waiting until the last 20 mins to decide if you wanted to back it?

Thanks to me and 73,975 other backers, PE has been successfully funded.

Lorcin wrote on Oct 16, 2012, 21:08:
Soz would have backed it if the $20 reward was still open. I'm not 100% up there on exchange rates atm but $25 pushed it into the "are you buying a piece of shite" territory.
Hmm, I don't know why you say that.. $25 is at least half of what it'll cost when released. Also, there were a few $20 spots that opened up towards the end.

Y'all notice another person picked the $10k tier? Also the additional $5k tiers filled up to name an inn or tavern.

Edit: I see y'all did notice! It ended sooo close to $4mil!

Anyone else quadruple-checking your pledge amount to make sure you covered everything?!
No, a triple-check was enough for me.

And now they're on level 13, and I'm thinking both "I want to see the whole guy!" and "I don't want to play a fucking FOURTEEN level dungeon!?"
Yeah, it looks like the guy stops at his waist though. Under that it looks more like caves with big gems or crystals in it. I still think it'd be cool to have a banner or bookmark of the Endless Dungeon image.

"And here it is...

$4m Stretch Goal - Enhance the Whole Game

OK! After much team deliberation we have one final ultimate stretch goal. At $4.0m we will be enhancing the whole game. We will use live instrumentation for the soundtrack, add developer in-game commentary, and use every dollar between $3.5m and $4m to enhance the game. Also at $4.0m Chris Avellone will be forced to play Arcanum."
Yeah, check the latest news on Blues and you'll see a new topic about it.

Yes, but if you back it for $25, then you get the game for $25, rather $60 in a store.
True that! Plus you can get stuff that won't be in the game later and you can help make the game better by paying now.
