What do these things even do, and why would we buy them:

 

$15 (Actually $17)

---------

1. In - Game Titles: Do we get special items associated with them? Will they mean something more like social status or something, that'd be pretty messed up if it did?

 

2. Thanks In the Credits as Early Backer: Do I get my name in the credits or is it thanking everyone at the same time?

 

$30 (Actually $34)

---------

3. Digital Reward Original Soundtrack: Do I get to play music in my buildings/ ship with this?

 

$60 (Actually $67)

---------

4. 11 DAC's: Am I going to have to spend money or DAC's every month to play the game in the Beta?

 

$68 (Actually $76)

---------

5. Arkship Passenger ID Card: What does this even do/ will do?

 

$120 (Actually $134)

---------

6. 23 DAC's: Am I going to have to spend money or DAC's every month to play the game in the Alpha?

 

7. Alpha Team Outfit: Are there different types of clothing in the game?

 

$135 (Actually $151)

---------

8. Dual Universe T-Shirt: Is this like some sort of thank you gift just to raise the price?

 

$260 (Actually $268)

---------

9. Dual Universe Metallic Box: Is this in game and what will it do or is this more trash they are trying to sell?

 

10. Dual Universe Art Book: Why? Just Why?

 

11. Dual Universe Poster: I actually like this one, just wish it came with the lower packages.

 

$505 (Actually $564)

---------

12. Alpha Team Member Statue (Male Or Female): Is this an in game statue or is this real? Is it a statue of them or an in game player?

 

13. Dual Universe Collector Box: Same question as metallic box, but I'm starting to think this is real, why sell me trash?

 

14. Arkship USB Key: What do this do? Is it in game or real? Is it useless trash or no?

 

$1000 (Actually $1117)

---------

15. One Hour Call with JC: If we all bought this, how would JC manage their time? Is JC a nickname for a person or the team? Can it be recorded?

 

16. Custom Avatar Portrait: Why is the cost so high for this, why not just make this an in game feature for everyone?

 

17. 2 Alpha Team Member Statues: Virtual or Physical?

 

18. 80 DAC's: Why are we paying for DAC's at this point, we already have a lifetime subscription?

 

$5000 (Actually $5587)

---------

19. Half Day with JC and Team: Well, if I can afford this, I could probably afford a few more hundred dollars for my plane ticket right, because I gotta ACTUALLY spend 12 hours with them, shake hands, kiss maybe, start a new family with JC and Team, please? How would they manage their time by giving this out? What if they get attacked or exposed or hacked?

 

$7000 (Actually $7821)

---------

20. Development of DU Secret: Do we get the info first before release or do we get it first LONG before release? What if someone decides to throw this out to the community before release? What if they get hacked?

 

21. Full Day with JC and Team: What is considered a full day to them, is it 24 hours (a sleep over), or is it in business days? This is enough time for me to start a family with every member in the team ;).

 

22. What does Kyrium even mean?

 

23. If you can pay this much for a game, what tax bracket are you in?

1. In-game title

2. Your name

3. TBA

4/6/18. You don't need DACs for alpha/beta. Later, even with lifetime sub, you can sell them for in-game money

5/8/9/10/12/13/14/17. Fanart and rl items (as clearly stated on the site)

7. Character customization is at launch. How deep - tba

15. Not everyone will buy this. And yes it can be recorded

19/21/23. Wtf

20. If you pay that amount you won't leak it. And if you do, they just kill that secret you developed and move on and ignore you. As this is a SECRET, no-one will get informed besides the ones developing it.

22. Kyrium is the metal the arkship is made of

I thought about how to react to this.

But you summed it up pretty well actually.

 

Still... I havn't understood what exactly the topic is about as well.

Yeah a lot of the stuff that you are either ripping apart or praising, that stuff is real physical stuff. Hence why there are digital and normal version of a lot of the pledges; the digital has only digital items. Lethys has you on which stuff is physical.

 

And yes, a lot of that stuff is a lot of money. 7K for a game sure is a crap ton of money, more than I could imagine spending. But if someone were to spend 10 times as much money as that on a car, would you be surprised? People spend 70K on a car all the time, and I can tell you I cannot imagine spending 70k on a car either; but hey, lots of people do it. So there are a few people out there that have a unique interest in that they really like games rather than cars, and they have a good bit of money, so they are willing to spend some of it on a game. It's just someone with money to put where they want it, combined with a unique interest.

 

You wonder how JC (and yes, singular human, a mere mortal) would have enough time for all those phone calls... If there were so many people giving the team 1000 dollars/euros that finding time to talk to all of them would be difficult, I really don't think they would be complaining much.

"Confound it, ANOTHER person wants to give me 1000 bucks for an hour-long phone call... That's the 18th one this week!"

 

Also I agree with what Lethys said on 19/21/23.

 

 

21. Full Day with JC and Team: What is considered a full day to them, is it 24 hours (a sleep over), or is it in business days? This is enough time for me to start a family with every member in the team ;).

Please don't get Kyrium.

Why are you writing the pledge sums like "$15 (Actually $17)"? Makes it like there was something shady with numbers. The first number isn't $/dollars, the first number is in euros because NQ is from Europe, and they are kind enough to give estimate of how much that would be in dollars, presumably because here are many people from USA.

Hi Neolithic,
 
Most of your questions can find an answer if you read the FAQ and all explanations available on the Kickstarter page.
While the Kickstarter campaign has ended almost everything regarding the Founder packs of the Kickstarter campaign remain true for the Post-Kickstarter Founder packs (minus exclusive Kickstarter rewards). So please, read everything there
 
As for the "unusual" questions for the highest Tier - Packs: 
 
- Can I start a family with a member of the Novaquark team? 
Nope, you can't start a family with one or several members of the Novaquark team. That's not part of the deal.
 
- What does it really mean to spend a day or half day with JC and/or the team? 
It means you can follow the daily life of the studio and discuss with Novaquark staff about Dual Universe for the time described in the pack. Nothing extraordinary here: it's a kind of reward that has already been seen several times in highest tiers of other crowdfunding campaign. Note: a full day is not 24h but a full working day.
 
- What if Novaquark staff is being attacked? 
Anybody could be attacked. No one is safe. It takes courage from getting out of the bed every morning. It's part of life. If you want more details regarding the answer to life, the universe and everything, we suggest to meditate on the number 42 or try to find the supercomputer Deep Thought. 
 
- What if Novaquark is hacked? 
Same answer as for the question above.
 
- What if a DU Secret is exposed? 
Those participating to a DU secret will be only aware of the secret they are involved in. Moreover, there will be a NDA on that topic. If someone want to blew up the DU secret he/she's involved in, he/she will be in for legal problems, without counting how he/she will be perceived by the community members, who will most likely not see this with a good eye. Not a very smart move and a very expensive joke, but that's just our opinion.
 
Best Regards,
Nyzaltar.

Just your favorite neighborhood development team!

 

Sig worthy, and that's not something I say lightly.
