Btw Isn't it possible to see somewhere how people got to the kickstarter page? I recall seeing a referal breakdown for one of the other projeccts. I think it was for doublefine.

I think it was a Pc Gamer article that I saw some point last year that got me hooked. I have been throwing money at the screen since then in the hope you guys would take it, thankfully the kickstarter came up.

My brother had been following it for some time, he turned me onto it, and I turned my friends onto it. :D

Read an article about it on Pcgamer.com . Really sparked my interest. When they started the kickstarter and released the demo, I read about it again on Pcgamer and the demo was even better than I expected. I immediately donated!

A friend of mine is a game journalist and he told me about it and how much he liked it.

If that's the case, tell him to get on the forums and get us more exposure! Side note though, I'm not affiliated with SSG, I just help with the Facebook page.

I heard about it from a friend. Then I posted it to the Dwarf Fortress forums, and the rest is history...
