We just backed it for $100, which means we receive a digital copy of the game (OUYA/PC/MAC), our name and rank listed in the game credits, a limited edition physical copy of the game for PC/MAC, access to the projects backer exclusive development forums where we can follow the course of development and offer our input, a pre-alpha build once a month during production, and weekly pre-alpha builds and a cool Viridis t-shirt! Wow! :)

Best of luck to Game Radiator! Shmups forever!
