Whew! That was a big last day, folks. The total when the clock ran down to midnight was nearly 40% of the total Goal, and thanks to the folks who chose to make their Pledges through the game’s dedicated website, the Pit campaign has been very successful.
The question is now: WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? We’ve worked out a roadmap for the next several weeks as follows:
STAGE ONE: FULFILLMENT EMAILS
For the next seven days, we are going to tally all Perks and Upgrades. We will then begin sending out emails to all Supporters of this campaign.
For people who got Just the Game, we will need to make sure we have a valid email address, so that we can provide you with a download when the game is ready.
For those who had higher-level Perks, we need to confirm a shipping address. EVERYONE will need to confirm their shipping address before we can send your Perks!
Some people will also need to specify their selections of T-Shirt designs, T-Shirt sizes, and Schematics.
True Believers will need to provide us with the name to be printed on your VIP card, and we will need to send you an NDA so that we can share information with you about our upcoming games.
Please keep an eye on your email!
STAGE TWO: FULFILLMENT
The first Perks to go out will be our Bumper Stickers, Schematics, Sol Force Service Mugs, and Concept Calendar. We are currently waiting for the first proofs to come back from the various printers of these items. As soon as the proofs are approved, we will send those out! If all goes as planned, they should arrive before the end of December in all cases.
The Black Section Book and the Lore Book are still in production. Final text and images are slated for completion by December 31st. The proofing stage of these books will be ongoing through January, and if all goes well they will be personally signed and delivered by the end of February 2013 at the latest.
STAGE THREE: GAME PRODUCTION
The majority of the team are already working hard on The Pit, and will be pushing the game to its Beta state for the next several weeks. When the game is ready for Beta, those with Beta access will be notified and have an exclusive play period.
The game is scheduled for completion and release in the first quarter of 2013. We will provide regular updates through our Indiegogo Page, The Pit Forums, and the dedicated website for The Pit.
Thank you for your support. If you have any further questions, our Comment section should still be open, and we are happy to answer questions on our forums as well.
Per Ardua Ad Astra: onward to the stars.
Thanks, everything is linked to the website now, but it never hurts to repeat the basic text.
Bumpity for Announcement of new Digital-Only Bundle.

Great, as soon as I'm back from vacation next week I'll be looking into this.
Bumpity for Calendar Preview and a reminder to send back your Survey emails!
Thus far the Paypal buttons have proven to be stickier than we hoped. If you need a Perk upgrade, best to arrange it by replying to the fulfillment survey: tell us what you would like to add and we will send a Paypal invoice to you directly.
Bumpity for latest Update with Schematic and Calendar previews.
So, I'm sure you Kerbs are taking an attitude of "We don't want to give an ETA for The Pit Beta because if the date slips then people will be all cranky." However, I'm sure I speak for everybody when I say, "please let it be ready soon, 'cause yay The Pit" and when it is released people will be all Anyway, very looking forward to any news in that direction.
