Ok so I did one of the pledges on that backerkit sight and I am a little unclear as to what happens after.  Will I get a steam game key later or something?  Do we get the wallpapers later via email download or something?  To be honest I have done a lot of purchasing online but this one happens to be the most vague setup I have ever encountered lol.

 

thanks for your time,

The first part should help you out a bit. That's the "general orientation" part. ;)

 

RTG tries to send the emails with the codes (GOG or Steam) at least 24 hours before release - no need to get nervous yet... :)

 

For any further questions, just come back here (or post in the FAQ thread, no problem)

I think it goes like this:

  1. You purchase game
  2. RTG has to (batch) import recent buyers into backerkit (twitter says they've tried to do this at least once a week)
  3. You get the backerkit invite
  4. RTG has to (batch) import "recent" buyers into Humble Store (this has only been done twice, and I suppose it will be done again when the PayPal "pledge" option closes down)
  5. You can claim your digital rewards in Humle Store - I suppose this includes the game when it's released.

(see Vainamoinen's FAQ for details) ;)

That helps a lot, yes... IIRC it's possible to achieve the same thing via changing the email in an existing Humble Account, but I can't guarantee it.

It goes more or less like this, except 2) is once a day.

So basically considering how close the game is to be released we wont see nothing until that time.

Alright, then twitter was wrong ;) That's good though, probably cuts down on the "I pledged x days ago but haven't received any invitation yet"-mails :)

Technically it's not wrong, at least once a week includes once a day! A few backers have experienced their ISP blocking the invite from BackerKi, though. Not much we can do about that, other than change the e-mail address upon request.

About gift pledges: Your second pledge will be added to your first pledge, giving you one profile page in BackerKit with two separate pledges. You can either have us change the e-mail of your gift pledge, creating a new profile for the one you're gifting to, or wait until you get the keys and do the gifting then.
