I've seen this question pop up quite a lot on different sites: "Is it still possible to back Bloodstained?". For some reason, many don't know there is a slacker backer option. Here I will post the links, as well as how to get there from the official campaign site if you are an extra cautious individual.
There are currently two links, but they lead to the same place.
1.) Scroll all the way down to the FAQs, and it will be there
2.) Second way to get there is by the button next to the $250 tier
Once you reach the main site, one simply selects which rewards to the right you wish to purchase.
Afterwards, it should take you to a page where you can add on other rewards as well. (Note: If you already backed Bloodstained, please check your e-mails for the URLs being sent out beginning of 9/15/2015 which should take you to a similar looking page. The amount you donated will be subtracted from the total costs of your reward, but one can upgrade their pledge as well.)
Finally, once you click "Proceed to Checkout", this is where you fill in the details which includes e-mail, address, and payment options. If you chose a reward over $100, you get to choose a Credit Clan and which name you choose to display under it. If your rewards include multiple versions of the game, you can choose here how you want both the physical and digital versions of the game, as well as any other variables in the items that come with your rewards (such as the shirt size).
We’ll be sending the surveys off over the next several days. If you still haven’t received your survey by Monday the 21st of September, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime however, please be patient!
If you stumble upon someone wanting to back, or if they want detailed explanations on how to get there themselves, please direct them to this guide! My hope for this thread is to make it as easy as possible for everyone involved.
purifyweirdsoul: One step closer to KOS-MOS in Soul Calibur 6? lol

XombieMike: Galamoo... That'd be an utterly ridiculous boss fight.

Arsenical: so it just happened to come to my mind what if they make changes to Bloodless design and her introduction cutscene? oh dear god i don't even want to think about it. ik SJW and sensitive people are going to be annoyed.

Arsenical: but the "fans" and backers are going to make a huge drama about the "censorship"

purifyweirdsoul: So, it is actually known that they've prepared a cut/shortened version of the Bloodless intro only in the event that it's the sole thing that puts the game into an M rating. If it's an M rating because of a bunch of other stuff, it stays, and stays M rated

Arsenical: Blood + gore + partial nudity + suggestive themes mmmm yep i don't think the ESRB likes this game for a" T" rating

XombieMike: There's no reason to invent things to worry about.

Jowy Avilon: There's no reason to invent things to worry about, but people for the most part will anyway most likely.

Arsenical: im aware of it and im giving the 3d realistic look a point for that.

Arsenical: i know that some countries and states actually care about rating and ask for an ID before selling you physical copies but thats not my case, here you can see 12 year old kids buying call of duty or GTA and nobody says a word about it.

Scars Unseen: Which is hilarious, because the entire purpose of the ESRB is to prove that the industry can regulate itself so that they avoid actual regulation.

ghaleon: Not really IMO. I mean lot watched rated R movies when I was a kid. Bear in mind back when I was a kid they would give R rated movies to ones with violence rather than just sex. Like the Terminator, Robocop, etc

Scars Unseen: No, that's literally the reason the ESRB exists. There was a lot of talk in the 90s about regulating video game violence, and a coalition of publishers including Nintendo, Sega, EA and Acclaim got together and created the ESRB to prevent it from happening
Apr 18, 2018 22:09:48 GMT -6
ghaleon: I thought you were saying it was hilarious that arsen see's 12 year olds buying certain rated games, not that they are asking for ID

ikai: Video games is technically a form of art, as well as movies. In free and democratic societies, art should never be conscripted, press should never be yellow and both should never be censored.

Scars Unseen: Freedom is never absolute and never should be. Pornography is also technically a form of art, yet we've seen fit not to allow it when children are involved. There's always a balance needed, and art doesn't get exempted from that.

ikai: "He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither"... Alas. Besides, the more you try to protect yourself from something, the more said something, happens in your domain. Exactly how the burglars thrived, right after the invention of locks...

Scars Unseen: Quotes aren't absolute either. And the second part is kind of bullshit. We didn't suddenly see an increase in pollution when we passed laws restricting industrial corporations' ability to pollute.

Scars Unseen: The modern take on libertarianism has about the same relationship with reality as Flat Earthers.
