    This will turn out to be one expensive month... but it is all worth it! :D

    Would it be possible to buy a lower tier and then upgrade to a higher one on the next milestone?

    For instance I don't have $500 ready to just toss away right now... But I can just barely make $250 work this time, and more likely than not, $250 next time. Will the rewards be different, or will they be the same, and will I be able to take that $250 pledge from this milestone and add another $250 to make the $500 next time? Would that supported by the system, more of a case-by-case basis that's manually changed by support, or will it be something that will absolutely never happen?

    Each milestone will have it's own special perks. So if you can't afford the 500$ one this time, you won't be able to get the same one next time. (But a different one with unique traits)

    Everything special right now is either cosmetics/skin/emote/name reservation oder deeper insight in the future game (demo, mockup, final game)

    Milestone 3 of 9,999,999,999 right? Or is it more?

    In seriousness, is there any form of estimate as to how many milestones this game will need?
    It seems like an endless money sink to me.

    There is a bit of info about that in the FAQ. Under the question "How many more milestones until the playable mock-up?" and the following question or two. The general path was talked about months ago in one of our blogs.

    I would say it's far too early to suggest anything like that. Considering the average budget of developing a video game, the money we have collected so far has barely scratched into it. Plus, keep in mind that the promise for each milestone we have had as of yet has been achieved.

    We welcome you to contribute to our next campaign, or if you prefer, feel free to just wait a while and see how things turn out. We hope you will be pleased with what you see. :)

    Looks good, but I'm a little confused about what some of these things are.

    -What do the terms "Final Game" and "Final Playable Mockup" mean?
    -Also, what is the Character Omni/Weapon Shooting Build?
    -I'd also like to see how these skins look like before purchasing.

    There is a bit of info about that in the FAQ. Starting with the question "How are you paying for Em-8ER's development?" and the following questions on that same line of thought.

    Most of the skins are not created yet, as they are for assets not yet built.

    1- FINAL GAME = THE GAME THAT GET RELEASED
    FINAL PLAYABLE MOCKE = THE FINAL DEMO, WHERE YOU GOT A THMPR TO DEFEND, FRAME TO HOP IN AND OUT WITH A CHARACTER AND THE ENEMIES TO SHOOT AT.

    2- A DEMO OF THE FRAME WITH A MALE/FEMALE HUMAN TO HOP IN AND OUT. AND A BUNCH OF STATIC TARGET TO SHOOT AT.

    3- THAT WE ALL LIKE TO KNOW.

    So when the picture says "Final Game x2", does that mean buying the pack automatically gives you two copies of the game or something?

    THAT'S RIGHT.
    ONE GAME FOR YOUR RIGHT HAND AND ONE FREE COPY FOR THE LEFT HAND.

    Torgue...we need at least a whole THMPR to stick into your mouth to lower your voice volume by 25%

    I am very looking forward for that game, very very promising. Though, at this rate, we can expect a beta version of the game in 2025... seriously, I think these milestones are a joke of a challenge, and you were even late for the first... Also, you had like 5X your original objective, but what extra did you do? I've only seen some very minor additions to the milestone. I would back this project if I see a real milestone and a real team that actually do something more than modelling a mech and a flat land... If you want to do a "massive" game, you are going to need a massive amount of work if you don't want to go for 200 milestones!
