LBA 3 Kickstarter - How much would you pledge?

In the case of a possible LBA 3 Kickstarter project to exist, how much do you estimate you could donate (pledge)?

◘ Remember, the values are APPROXIMATE.
◘ The vote is annonymous.
Be honest so Fred can actually use this as a reference.

Why not creating a Pool?
Seriously, why not?

I will have to vote for 25€, even though I'm probably donating 35€ (R$100,00)

Ah, I see. You never created a thread with a poll before did you?
It's impossible to create the poll before the actual thread, it always happens in this order.
So what happened is that you could see the thread while I'm still creating the poll, see?

So.... I've voted for the 2,5k one. Comes closest to € 2357,-

I must be a programmer, they have high salaries

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,

So far, Fred would have 3925 euros. Not bad for only the first 20 hours of survey!

Seriously guys, this is not a competition. Vote for as much as you can pay (and want to), be sincere about it.

You're right, I shouldn't joke about suggesting a competition.

I'm serious though, I'd donate € 2357,-.
Just wanna know, how much does it need?

The more money = the more fantastic LBA 3 will be.

The minimum to make it happen would be around 1 million euros, I heard somewhere.

That's R$1500 here. I can't afford donating that without having to use my college savings. Remember I'm still 19 (birthday last week) and I'm still on my first job.

Well it's just a guideline of the total. In total we have 2,000 members, and 1m/2k=500.
And I'd already donate at least four times that much, and if more of us do that, we wouldn't need all members.

We are 2000 members, but what, 30/50 active? I have never seen more than that, at least.

Yeah, I'm still going to uni and do not have that much to spend like that. I think I could pledge 100 euros at most.

Minimum 50, but depending on factors that might go up.

Really depends what it is exactly - full game or episodes, being the most important factor.

I just smacked down 50 euros on this kickstarter as Eternal Darkness ranks very close to LBA in my favorite games of all time list. So I know for LBA Id do at least the same.
