#10. What if...?
We have noticed people on forums wondering what might happen if our campaign doesn't reach its €300,000 goal.
First of all, it is important to understand that this is an all-or-nothing kind of deal. If we fall short of our goal, we won't receive any money, and you won't have to pay anything. If you paid by credit card, your contribution will be refunded via the Ulule system. You'll have the money transferred back to your bank account or, if you want, you can invest this money in another Ulule/Gamesplanet Lab project. If you have paid via Paypal, it's even simpler, because you won't get charged at all. Your account will only get charged by Paypal at the end of the campaign, if it ends successfully.
What will happen to Day One then? Well, if our crowdfunding campaign fails, this project will most likely be shelved, maybe forever. If a publisher changes his mind and decides to invest in the development of the game, it may see the light of day a few years from now, but we cannot guarantee that it will be the same game, with the same ambition and creative freedom. Who knows what the future holds? Maybe it will be turned it into a smaller hidden object game instead of the larger and richer full-fledged adventure game that we are hoping to create. Maybe it will be made exclusively for iOS, or only released digitally instead of being sold on CD in retail shops. What we know for sure is that we won't get the chance to share its development with you and to have all you fans on board to help us create the game. And of course, you won't get any of the cool rewards we prepared for you.
So, if you want to take part in this incredible adventure, please continue to spread the word! Try to convince your family, your friends, your neighbors and your colleagues to join us. If you have a friend who's in a band, tell him they could have one of their tracks in the game! If your nephew is an artist, let him know about this incredible opportunity to show his talent to the world. And remind everyone that they could win a trip to Bilbao, even if they pledge just €6.
There will be some new rewards announced very soon, including a limited offer to own a piece of Pendulo history, so keep an eye on our page!
