WE REACHED 25K!!!!

:o

I am once again amazed and totally floored, and....just, holy crap! Thank you all so, so very much for your support! Reaching our goal means that we are officially guaranteed to be funded and the Kickstarter is officially a success! You will get your rewards, and you have helped Cognition happen!

Of course, what's even better? It doesn't stop here! We have 19 more days left before the Kickstarter ends, and every dollar that is raised goes right into Cognition's development. We'll have more updates coming on what we can do with any extra money we raise, but again, for what you've done so far, thank you!

Totally awesome!!  Any money beyond our initial goal of 25k will just help us to get Cognition done even sooner so keep those donations coming, our fans rock!

A hearty congrats, guys!  Glad to see new adventure game projects getting real support.  I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing what you guys can do with an original IP.  And with input from the Messiah, no less!  ;)

Good Job all!  Seems like you should do well in the business world, and it's a world that could definitely use your influence. Seems like the momentum of the donations have not slowed either, up another half a K and 19 days to spare.  I wonder how much of a pay raise you will all be getting?  Probably a better salary then the last 10 years anyway!

Lambonius:  So you finally acknowledge her as the Messiah?  Praise be!  You may get saved yet!

Reposted from the KS updates page:

Update #8: Funding goal of 25K reached!

We reached 100% of our $25,000 funding goal today!! And we're still 19 days out from the end of the Kickstarter! OMG!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much to everyone who has supported us. This has been a truly amazing experience and frankly downright heart-warming for all of us. This week, in the US, it's going to be Thanksgiving, and it goes without saying what everyone on our end is thankful for this year!

So, what does this mean? Well, for one thing, it means that we are guaranteed the funding that is raised on the Kickstarter. Come Dec. 11th, it's going to happen! There will be financial support for the development of Cognition, thanks to all of you! And all of the rewards that you've signed up for will also come through.

But what's even better is that since we still have days to go, we still have time to go above and beyond 100%. Everything that is pledged before Dec. 11th will go into funding this game, no matter how much more than $25,000. If we can make this happen at 25K, imagine how much we can do on 30K, 35K, or dare we dream, even more than that!

We're discussing what new stretch goals we can set and what can we do if we hit those numbers. For right now: Cesar Bittar, CEO/Designer/Director/Producer/You Name It, is going to be turning 32 on November 29th. So our next goal is to raise $32,000 as the best birthday present he could ever ask for!

Once again and as always, thank you so much for everything. Your belief and support in us and in this game is incredible--you truly are making our dreams come true!

I doubt that anyone is getting paid much of anything until there are sales. (Though any pay is definitely more than none.)

Truly unbelievable. Congratulations on a successful kickstarter. This is probably too soon, but any idea on when corridor 9 will be released? Correct me if I'm wrong, could you be doing Iphone apps? PS3 / XBOX 360?

Again, congrats on 25k. That was pretty quick!

Guaranteed to be funded means that you will get corporate backing?

P.S. I just sent my backing your way via 60 bucks.

Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!
