Observers are invited to controbute financially to the scheme’s coffers, for which they will receive various rewards including new and past prototypes, voting rights on which prototypes are made into actual games, and access to livestreams and recaps of the event in progress.

  • Pay any amount to receive all 2012 prototypes and new 2014 prototypes.
  • Pay more than $1 for the right vote on which three prototypes Double Fine develops as games.
  • Maybe most excitingly, Adventuyre Time creator Pendleton Ward has contributed various prototypes and if you pay more than the current average price ($6.92 at time of writing) you can vote on which of these three concepts is developed into a game.
  • Pay more than $35 to get hold of a special edition Blu-ray of the 2014 games.
