So I'm preparing for Spryke's kickstarter in a few weeks, and I'm still tossing up different reward options.
I'm keen to include some sort of cosmetic in-game reward for kickstarter backers, such as a unique skin or in-game pet, or something like that. But what would be the best way to do this logistically?
I can think of a few ways, each with potential hassles:
-give players a secret code that they can enter in-game (though if/when it leaks it'll no longer be exclusive)
-create some sort of standalone program or file that I send to backers, which flicks a switch in-game
-have users enter their email address and check on a server if they're eligible for the extra (probably closer to how AAA games do it, but annoying for user and a lot of work for me).
I'm hoping there's a really good solution I haven't thought of. Suggestions, please!
