Yeah, I've been creating a lot of polls, but it's very interesting to see all the results. :cheese:

So, this one is about us, the backers... who are you (location, gender, age)?

I find it horribly offensive that the toaster gender is not included here.

Why choose age 30 as your focus? That's an interesting choice.

I'm just slightly confused as to why Australia is in the same group as Africa, South America and Antarctica :D

Statistics show that the average gamer's age is 33-35. Therefore it's interesting to see if this also correlates with the age of Backers.

I'm an alien from outer space. Chronologically I'm 300+ year old, but biologically I'm 43 and mentally 12.

That.. is a lot of poll options. What happens if polls reach critical mass?

Either way, I'm not old, so my experience with adventure games is limited, though I dabble in a number here and there.

Very interesting to see Europeans dominate!

Also the commonality of the those younger than 30, despite this game being about Nostalgia.

I'm also a young European.

Considering what hour this poll went up, I'm not surprised that Europeans are "dominating" the poll.

I was under the impression that this game wouldn't just be a nostalgia fest.

Also, I'm 18, and from Europe.

EDIT: Oh, and in case it wasn't obvious from my username (or is Alex a unisex name?), I'm male.

Awww, damn you and your intelligent arguments, now I can't fantasise over the de-Americanisation of this game!

So, what do I choose if technically I'm in asia but practically my country - Israel isn't related in any other way to asia? Saying i'm asian is somewhat weird... maybe closer to european...

24, male

D-did...did I just sign my death warrant?

Signing myself as a North American male under the age of 30 certainly narrows down the number of people who could be me. And everyone knows that when that happens, the creepy guy in black robes and a mask flies out of nowhere because his twisted mind demands sacrifice.

Simple! "Africa or South America or Australia or Antarctica" is your way to go. Since this option covers most of the world I am sure there is enough space for Israel, noone will notice :]

[image of Freud]

Yes I noticed that too... very interesting...

The image of Freud made me laugh. :lol:

Anyways, I'm not a statistical whiz, so it was just guesswork:

- The largest and smallest observations are probably about 10 and 70 (outliers), and since each extra age group would be 8 extra answers (x2 for the genders, x4 for the locations), I used steps of 20 to cover 10-30-50-70.

I also took into account (why/how, I don't remember):

- Today - Day of the Tentacle + start adolescence = 2012 - 1993 + about 11 = 30.

- And (Tim Schafer + Ron Gilbert) / 2 = (44 + 48) / 2 = 46.

With the benefit of hindsight - seeing the 192 votes - I would've made different groups.

Still interesting to see the current results though, IMO.

Kind of an odd fantasy to have considering who is making this game.

As wacky a place as it is, San Francisco was still in the USA last time I checked.

edit: Oh, and NA male under 30.

Still, American games are being played all over the world, so I don't see any problem there.

Germany (Europe), 28, male.
