I'm an art major about to enter my second year of college: I HAVE NO MONEY.

What if I just click on a bunch of the advertisements? That should give you like $5.00 if I click a lot, right?

if the donations exceed 30,000, the project gets funded, otherwise, all the donations are refunded to the donators.

Yeah, the bronies donated upwards of 12,000 to the humble bundle to beat out notch, maybe if we had them competing on this it would have reached the cap weeks ago


the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them

there might be a few last minute philanthropist waiting for it to hit a certain mark before pushing it over the finish line.

also its demotivating to donate and see the final amount actually go down.

Indeed, but if some guy removed his $2000 pledge (which is what happened) then that's hard it prevent. Also worth mentioning that other people might withdraw their pledges as well, if it looks like this project is not going to get full funding.

If some of you guys want to help the project you could put something about it in your Newgrounds Newsfeed. It doesn't take long and it would certainly help, especially for those of you with a lot of fans on this site.

I don't know much about Kickstarter except that everyone and their grandmother has one, but couldn't someone start up a PayPal account accepting donations and just wait until the goal is met?


Aww, yeah. Words and sh*t!

They can and he did, but it usually doesn't work as well.

If this Kickstarter fails (let's be honest here, $10,000 in 10 hours is gonna be hard to get), will there be a possibility of re-submitting the project, but with a revised budget (say, $18,000)?

There should probably be a Reddit post for this, it might broaden the possibility.

^This right here. If this was front paged a month ago, it could have probably even exceeded its goal. The one banner there actually is, is very vague.

Well, it is up to $18,013, as of 6/18/12 with 104 minutes to go we can be assured that this kickstarter bombed, maybe we don't won't to spend money since NG Users create flash movies/art/music and that eats up spare time and money.

aw damn, thought we made it. only $12,000? damn, that's a mere 40% of the entire goal. a few more days would have done it =/

The way I see it, 2 months is too short for 30K anyway, it shouldve been longer and frontpaged sooner. Who says they cant relaunch the kickstarter and make it longer? I don't see any reason why they couldn't. It wouldn't push production back by much, I'm sure people could wait. For something like this, it's not even that long to wait!

It totally would be worth it. I say we get out street teams and get downloadable print-outs making flyers to promote the series and kickstarter. If they relaunched, I would be willing to go out and do this, and film it. This time around there could be way better execution. It can't be over yet!

What happens now? The project goes without the goal money, or everything goes to zero?

I think Eddsworld raised over 50k in less than 2 weeks, so it's more lack of generous and interested people than time, really.
Shame it didn't go foward.

The donators get a refund, the project does not get a single cent and basically that's all.

I'd have to Second what AsthmaticHamster said - Hopefully they will relaunch it with a smaller cap - -seems like they already have so much done to just quit and drop off progress - Maybe they will have to make some cuts, lose a few episodes, get a little thrifty; but i hope they still produce it in some capacity.
