Indiegogo donors are now being expected to email Pixelmage Games with details about their donation level to enable them to be totally refunded. Vapor consumers are advised to manage to get thier money back through Steam's regular refund procedure.

"we are sorry things worked out how they performed, but we feel strongly that individuals provided it our all and now we're pleased with how far we was included with the overall game."
