4,000$ per episode? I found this:

"For the record, unless youâEUTMre getting someone right out of school thatâEUTMs desperate to get work on their reel, a seven minute cartoon will cost anywhere from $15,000 to $50,000 depending on the level of detail."

the rest is at this blog.

And if you think profiting off another man's death is sickening, what about morticians? Coffin makers? Governments who levy a death tax? What about all of the people who've taken over a business after the death of its creator? Get some perspective before you continue to bash people.

I'm a poor student like a lot of the people here, but I still gave to the Kickstarter what I could. I honestly don't think thre's an excuse for not giving at least $10 if you've got a computer and internet good enough to let you play games and watch videos on Newgrounds if you really wanted to see the Forsaken City become a reality. =/

We don't have much time, and I've sort of lost hope, but come on, Newgrounds--dig into your pockets! We're a community, and we should be supporting our own! I know we're better than this!

Thanks...

I don't really see the point of this kickstarter campaign. We have so much talent here on newgrounds and I've never heard of any of these guys. It seems like kind of a sham to be honest. I would love to see kickstarters made by TRUE newgrounders to make a huge game or a big collaborative project that actually significantly benefits the site or the community. This seems way forced. I still donated, though because I love this site and Tom seems to feel strongly about it.

lol "profiting", dunno if you've heard of this concept or what but its called "having a job". I know it's crazy to imagine that someone would want to be paid for months of work making content for people to watch for free, but hey it's a crazy world we live in nowadays where everyone is WOW so entitled! Also evidently you didn't read it as thoroughly as you claim, the kickstarter states 4 long episodes and 4 "mini" ones, that adds up to 8 when I do the math, and also states that it's over the course of the year. Wow $18500 for what will undoubtedly be a year of working constantly WHAT A GREEDY FUCK

And just to expand on RedMinus's comment (which is 100% true), £18500 is pretty much JUST above the UK's minimum wage. They are pretty much doing this for the ABSOLUTE minimum that they can, which really just proves how greedy they AREN'T.

I think getting 48 individual characters that donated $300+ to the show into only four episodes will pretty much ruin it.

I'd say if more of the story was revealed (with actual dialogue) and more creators were involved with their inherit characters, it probably be a better sell.

Do I get it right, that PayPal donations are not included in the current total on kickstarter yet?

I am not even dreaming that there is enough money on there already to get somewhere close to the desired 30k but it would be interesting to see how much that additional donation method really helps.

Only 5 days to go, but I still hope a miracle happens and carries this thing safely over the 30k mark.

Congrats to the Eddsworld crew, it's amazing how fast the fans and supporters raised the money!
