How will we get DETOUR? If we already have it (thanks again for the Femme, I have to play that some more soon) will we get a giftable copy?
Other great Indie games:
Overgrowth
Project Zomboid
Dwarf Fortress

From what I can think off, it will become a giftable copy.

I'm pretty sure with steam, if you already have a game and get it again it instantly becomes giftable.

Steam

You'll need to download it and create an account. Every gamer should have it, it's quite good.

Steam
(Just go to the 'install steam' button)
Steam is a digital game distributor for computer games. It is quite reliable but has its cons, you will find most new and some old games on there. Its owned by the company Valve. (Creators of Half-life)

Then when you have steam open it up, you may have to wait for some updates to come through. Whilst that is happening you can go and create an account on the steam website.

After that you can browse around the store page, but what you can do is go to the search button and type in 'detour' and you will be able to navigate to the page.

After that you go 'buy game' which then will ask you if you want to continue shopping or continue with your transaction. When you continue you will be taken to a page that will ask for you billing details and what you want to use as your transaction (Paypal, credit card ect)

I hope this helps out, also if you got Detour within the Kickstarter you will possibly get a code that you will put into steam(?)

If so here's a few steps to use it.
Open up steam
Click games on the top bar
Activate a product on steam
Type in your code

Also if you get extra gifts and so forth you can gift it doing this
Open up steam
Click games on the top bar
Manage gifts and guest passers
or
In library you find your game
and to the left there is something called 'links'
within there you will find something like 'gift game'

That'll be what you do when we give out the codes. (Won't be for a couple weeks after it ends)

Won't receive a code for a while, you will have to wait till they distribute it.

Love that description of the update! Upped from $35 to $50, so my pet and me can team up against those zombies!
And I get the Kickstarter! MuuahAHHAHA... [The diabolic laugh you are trying to read is not availible, since it would be annoying to be read. Please try again later.]

More than 500 via PayPal? We'll see what we can do. PayPal has some odd restrictions though. Shouldn't be any other risks that I can think of, except if we can't get in touch with you at your email address.

We're considering just letting people donate multiple times (multiple 500s?) and we'll just add it all up. The PayPal thing we kinda have to run on our own.

Oh no, no, I meant that we can't upgrade the pledge to a higher

For example, I donated $25 when it was available, and now that there are more incentives to upgrade to the $50 pledge (the soundtrack and an extra copy of TDL), we can't upgrade it now.
And we knew that upgrading it was not possible :P

Just carefully add another $25 and we'll make sure you get the $50 rewards.
