Please Pardon Our Kickstarter Preparations

In another week, Store32 will be launching its first Kickstarter ever. I’m excited and I’m terrified to try and put a video together. I’ve been working on a video for the Kickstarter so I missed yesterday’s post. Sorry about that if it ruined your day. So why are we doing this?

A big reason is to bring fresh artwork to the game. A number of artists have committed to working on more art for the 3rd edition. With a successful KS we will be commissioning twenty new pieces from some talented artists including cover art. This will be a great way to really amp up the look of the game. I also want to bring in a graphic artist to work on the layouts and make the game look really nice.

A lot of the game is already written but each time we playtest I’m tweaking more and more to hone in on the right feel, build on things that are fun and cut out things that seemed like a good idea but never get used.

The starting goal is $5,000. A lot of that will go to filling the rewards but to me that’s not a bad thing because that means more people playing the game.

The planned reward levels are. . .

$10 Production releases of PDFs, communication with the designer (me) about the game and a listing as a backer to the interstellar teleporters that make it possible to travel to The Artifact on the back cover as a private citizen. Your donation will be listed in the millions of dollars or kept private.

$25 Softcover book and all $10 level rewards

$45 Color softcover and all $10 level rewards

$80 Limited edition color hardcover book signed by the designer and all $10 level rewards

$100 Brick n’ Mortar tier for stores gets 6 copies of the softcover.

$100 Same as $80 level and a T-Shirt with your choice of artwork on it from the pages of the book. Listed as a corporate donor to the teleporters. Get to pick the corporation’s name (pending approval).

$150 Same as $100 and a custom dice bag with all the dice you’ll need to play with four players. Get to create a famous NPC for the game book. Listed as a megacorp donor. Get to pick the corporation’s name (pending approval).

$250 Same as $150 level with a personal gaming session over Skype

So please pardon the dust, that’s just me running around trying to make sure I’ve got things covered.

    “a listing as a backer to the interstellar teleporters that make it possible to travel to The Artifact on the back cover as a private citizen”
    DUDE, I WANT!! You should make it so the more money someone gives the higher rank they have on the back cover (more importance), so for only 10 bucks its just a regular private citizen, and so on so forth.
    Anyway I can’t wait for 3rd Edition man! I’m curious as to who these artists are? 😮

      It’s good to hear that it’s an exciting reward, I wasn’t sure how that would be received. I imagine some might want to not have their donor levels or maybe even their names listed so I’ll be giving the option of not being listed.

      Yes, the idea is, if you pledge $10 you’re listed as $10,000,000, if you pledge $100 you’re listed as donating $100,000,000 dollars.

      Actually, I have to talk to the artists and see if they want to be mentioned. I have no problem with doing so, but I’d rather respect their wishes. I’m sure that once they’ve done the work they’ll want attribution.
