    Subnautica I hate to break it to you but you are another victim of one of the many "Help the Africans" causes. There is extremely little information on their website on how they actually provide these 5 years of water to someone. It has long since been proven that many of these websites that claim to help someone out in africa are scalping a huge percentage of the profits and pocketing it for themselves. I'll bet that maybe $2 worth of the $18 you spend on that bottle actually goes to help someone out in aftrica. The rest goes into the pocket of guy on that website. Also by doing this you are damaging the economy of whatever country they are trying to "help" since this is taking jobs away from their local people.

    Yes, I would definetly like some more information than a vague sentence. Not that I am against helping people, but there isn't really a specific place mentioned (other than "Africa" which is an entire continent) or a specific thing stating how my eighteen bucks can provide five years worth of drinking water.

    Looking at the website, only 20% actually goes toward the water project, as they call them, and they only install pumps if that project reaches a goal.

    Eh, I wanted to write something very smart and witty here, but I'll just go and buy myself a bottle instead. I'll have the first official SN merch to show off and enjoy, and some - however small - portion of my payment will go to a good cause. Even if it's only 2 dollars, that's still 2 dollars more than would get there if the bottle was just ordinary merchandise sold in a gaming store. I'd say that's a win.

    Hey... we should ask the Devs to redo the little grey "Filtered Water" bottle in-game to look like the Give-Me-Tap Subnautica bottle! Also, for those curious, some info on the "Afridev Pumps" they use...

    Oh god this looked so cool I had to buy one, and I hardly buy anything like this. If you guys already reached your goal, did my purchase help with anything though?

    Really appreciate the feedback and will definitely work to improve the messaging on our website.

    You guys have gone above and beyond in answering the questions and concerns brought up, and with just what your company is doing in general, thank you so much :) Next paycheck is definitely going towards one of these bottles lol

    Thanks again for the kind note you left us Conor. Definitely made the team chuckle o:)

    Even though we've now reached the target, EVERY bottle still counts. Your purchase will go to towards funding our next project which we will be announcing very soon!

    Any idea how long these usually take to ship? Just curious since I ordered one about 6 days ago.

    As far as I'm aware, once the campaign ends they will be made and then shipped.

    From what I've seen, only thirteen have been sold including mine! I'm an Aussie so in total it cost about $40.00. I'm not complaint because it's for a good cause and some people in Africa now have 65 years of water, but I was expecting even hoping that more people were willing to purchase an awesome water bottle so people in Africa get 5 years of water per purchase. Again, not complaining.
