No they don't, they explicitly said if they don't get the 1.5m the game isn't getting made and Lab Zero is dead.

The way this is set up if they have a publisher 505 Games, ready to give them 2 million, but ONLY if they get the other 1.5m through crowdfunding.

If the 1.5m isn't reached by the end of the funding period, they won't get the 2 million from the publisher. If that happens, the studio is shutting down and they're all going their seperate ways, they've been very explicit about this.

Sadly not the case with every IGG project.

I can't believe how hard this game has had trying to get the money together even though it has done more than any other crowdfunding project to prove it deserves money.

I love Skullgirls. Its probably my favorite fighting game ever. I want L0 to make another game. They also got a shit deal over it and haven't made ANY MONEY off it.

What I want to know is why did they decide to use IGG when KS is far more popular. Its been proven. IGG has a higher ratio of projects that failed to reach funding.

Skullgirls' campaign was on Indiegogo and did pretty well.

Also something about Indiegogo giving them promotional help with the project, which they've also not actually followed through with at all according to the Indivisible Devs. So, sticking with Indiegogo might've hurt them, hard to say.

Its kinda amazing how difficult it is to reach 1.5 mil cause I am looking at the donations and its like they are getting at least a hundred bucks an hour.

Its not like donations aren't coming in.

Yeah probably not.

Unless another Red Ash happens and somebody swoops in with 300k, but that's probably not gonna happen.

The rate of incoming donations is already going up a lot, it's at around $1,275,000 right now.

Indivisible is gonna be fine I think, it's not gonna get much more than the initial goal, but I do think it'll make there with the way things are going now.

Now, watch as 4 days later it ends up failing with a total of 1.49 million because I jinxed things.

I'm pretty happy to be wrong. They got 100k left to go. I think they can make it. I hope they do. It would suck if they lost on the last 100k.

Come on, why am I cheering so hard for this I want you to make it thooooough DO IT

I don't think anyone should doubt Indivisible will get funded. Like these things almost always make a ton of money in the last few days. People are saving money to donate more, they've been hesitant or unsure, they just haven't had money until now, etc. Hell, I only now just threw $125 at it (even though I probably shouldn't) because I consistently told myself to donate and kept forgetting.

So yeah, it'll happen. Give them your power! lol

To be fair the game did need an extension. If it didn't get to that 60% in time, it would not have even gotten this boost. Or maybe double boost since it got an initial boost to get to that extra boost.

But yes. Let's hope they make it tonight.

That, and it really seemed to slow to an absolute crawl around the middle, more than what's typical anyways.

There were points where I was tempted to withdraw the money I contributed, because I didn't think it was gonna be funded and I could've used to the Paypal money for other things. I'd just go on the Indivisible page, see it at the same percentage as last time I checked a day or two ago, and it seemed impossible that it was ever gonna make it at the rate it was going.

Glad I didn't in the end though.

I was gonna make a joke about there being stretch goals, but there actually is stretch goals.

$1,650,000 - Another HOUR of Music by Hiroki Kikuta
$1,900,000 - Animated opening by Titmouse and "Mystery Anime Studio"

I mean, the first one is doable I guess, but there's no way in hell they're getting 1.9 million at this point.

It's over.

$1,867,620 is the end funds, lot's more than I thought they'd ever get, but I'm glad they got it.

Apparently you'll still be able to contribute for awhile, there's more Stretch Goals too. So, anyone that wanted to put in some money who couldn't for whatever reason, you still have time and an incentive. Not sure on the details so keep an eye out for it.

Spoiler for Post-Initial-Funding Stretch Goals:
Goals

Meanwhile Psychonauts 2 leaves Indivisible in the dust. I'm really glad they didn't start this earlier!
