Is Impervium worth it?

    Okay so, I am thinking of getting Impervium tier and I am pretty close to it, I am just wondering if you think if it is worth it? Like, I know supporting the developer's is great and that is what it's for, but this is two thousand dollar's and the statue thing doesn't seem THAT cool, it is amazing and all but isn't it just the same thing the people who get their name in the credit's have? Just without the statue of yourself. I know comparing two different Indie title's is really bad and all but on the FTL kick starter the person who paid 2000$ got to help make a new race. I am not telling them to change it because that wouldn't be possible and it would cheat other's who already payed for the statue out of their money, I am just wondering if you think I should buy the tier?

      If I had that kind of money to spend in a frivolous or 'fun' fashion such as this, I do not think I would spend it on Starbound. Voted no.

        It's if you really, REALLY want to support the game.

        I'm probably going to have to agree with you on the notion that getting a pixelated statue that does absolutely nothing but sit there and MAYBE look pretty for 2,000 US kerfluffleberries is pretty gross, but its up to you.

            In short, No.

            It isn't supposed to be "worth it" in itself, though. If you want to support the team in that way, do it, and you get a nice bonus for doing so.

              Spend those 2k$ in 15$ or 20$ Tiers and gift those or make contest or do whatever and you can support the dev team on equal amount and can potentially make a LOT of people happy. Quite honestly i did not like that last tier much.

                I honestly wouldn't bother, even if I HAD the money to blow.

                The fact that it exists at all almost implies they're worried about not receivin' enough financial support but I really have no doubt that this forum alone could fund it juuust fine.

                And that's assumin' everyone goes Pixel-tier.

                StarBound is NOT a game people are gonna hafta think about when they see what it is, in my opinion.

                  Thank you for your opinion. What would you spend $2000 on? For like something fun, not tax's/food

                      It depends on how much money you have/make. If 2k is nothing to you, then it's a nice way to support the developers. (though so are gifts & giveaways)

                          Go for the weapon instead or maybe the hat, or both. They are much more interesting than a statue.

                            I know this. I would just like to get a bonus myself for it, after all two thousand dollar's isn't something I can get easily.

                              I would spend 2k on this game if i had it as my way of thanking and congratulating the developers for making a fully fleshed, deep, engaging, endless, fun game that they spent a ton of time and effort on for only $15. in my eyes they deserve a LOT more for this and i would give them the 2k for being generous and kind people.
                              But this is what i would do, and why i personally would get Impervium.
                              With that tier you get everything the lower tiers get (except the hat and weapon design) plus the statue, i wouldn't do it for just the statue though.

                                As much as we support the devs, I must quaintly say no. Sure some can pay $2000, but the devs need to care for those of their players who can't donate as much, we deserve to be given even more, even paying the minimal amount.

                                Don't do it if you cannot afford so.if you have good suggestions, let them be known, and if the community likes it, we'd gladly push it through the devs to come true. It's not always about the money put into a product, it's the passion into the product.

                                  FenixR's suggestion does have some merit IMNSHO. As for myself... likely I would contemplate taking a cheap trip somewhere fun, a computer hardware upgrade or perhaps some very nice books. Hard to say really.

                                  Anyways take your time to decide and may you be happy with your decision in the end.

                                    If I had 2,000$ to spend on the preorder I think I would either get 2 Platinum tiers and a Solarium tier, or 2 Solarium tiers. Designing items for the game seems more interesting than having a statue of myself. A hat and weapon is something that could potentially stay with a player for their entire gameplay experience (especially the hats considering vanity slots) and the statue is something someone might put in a house, maybe, and they will see it whenever they are hanging out in that one spot.

                                          Whenever I make my giant mansion I will have a room with all the statues of the Impervium tier donors, I might not visit it often but I'll show a nod of respect for dropping 2,000$ bucks on a game I've been waiting over a year for.
