Kickstarting a Virus (Poll)

So we're happy with how sales are going, but we have a ways to go before we fill back in the giant hole in our savings. However, we want to add some of the features that we always intended to put in A Virus Named TOM, but ran out of money before we could implement. The solution: Kickstarter. Basically we're trying to gauge what features we should include in a kickstarter campaign to make sure we hit our funding goal (some features are more expensive than others). So please let us know what features, if any, would make you willing to fund us! Feel free to comment with other feature ideas. As always, thanks so much for all the support, it's been amazing!

What features for 'A Virus Named TOM' would you be willing to make a Kickstarter donation for (you can choose more than one, our expense/time is listed next to each)
Online Multiplayer ($$$$$)
Level Editor ($$)
Localization/Translations ($)
I dig AVNT but most likely wont fund it's Kickstarter

Just in case you found this and have no idea what A Virus Named TOM is, here's the trailer:

    1. :) YES! Seems obvious, I'm just a little scared cuz it'll push our funding amount way up, so I want to see if we'd get support for it.

    2. More specifically, online co-op. Half the job is already done since there's local coop, it just needs a net code!

    3. Yep, all the gameplay is there, but I haven't done video game networking code yet and I'm told it's not something to take lightly. Hopefully we can figure out a way to do updates so our awesome community can help us put it through it's paces :)

  2. UPDATE: Forgot Mac/Linux Support! The Poll is flaky so lets just say we'll add that in regardless :)

    1. That's my thought. I sadly haven't used steam workshop much but it seems perfect for sharing levels. If we exceed our funding goal I'd love to integrate some of the level sharing into the game in some way. Also, silly idea: co-operative level creation? :)
