What's the release date?

Q4 2015! Last updated: Wed, Mar 11 2015 12:20 pm EDT

Are you going to be releasing on Linux?

We're building the game on Unity, so Linux is definitely on the table. Unfortunately, the Linux release will have to come after the PC/Mac release, and it won't be possible for early access. Last updated: Wed, Mar 11 2015 12:20 pm EDT

What about DRM-free copies?

We'll be releasing digital rights management-free copies with our full release. Last updated: Wed, Mar 11 2015 12:21 pm EDT

Who Receives Steam Early Access?

All backers will receive the option for a key when H6 enters Steam Early Access, but DRM-free copies will need to wait until full release. Last updated: Sat, Mar 14 2015 12:03 pm EDT

What Do I Need To Do To Access The Add-On Rewards?

If you've already backed us, go to "Manage Pledge" and add the designated add-on extra pledge cost (or more) to your total. Be sure to keep your original pledge tier the same. After the Kickstarter is over, we will contact you and you can specify your desired add-ons based on the extra amount added. Last updated: Fri, Mar 27 2015 1:33 pm EDT

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://halcyon6.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
