Update #2 Kickstarter almost funded! Video thanks to our backers!
Hey guys! Are we really this close to meeting our goal already? Wow, I still can’t believe it!
So we made this video to thank our backers. Check out Ben and I stumble through trying to pronounce all your screennames.
But first, a few points of business!
· We made this video Sunday (April 23) afternoon, so if you donated after that, your name won’t be mentioned until our next video. If you donated before then, but we somehow missed you, please let us know!
· If you sent me mail and I did not respond, I’m very sorry! I’m not used to getting this much mail and things can slip through the cracks. I want to respond to everyone. If you don’t receive a response within 24 hours, please resend your questions!
· The sprites of backers in this video are those who pledged $50 or more and sent pictures to email@example.com. There are many others who pledged that amount but probably didn’t know they could send pictures to get their sprites in the video. That’s okay! Go ahead and send them now to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you in on the next video update later this week!
· Also, keep in mind that the sprites are just preliminary designs I made for fun for this video. They aren’t the finalized versions that will be in the game. There will be more back and forth allowed on their creation, so you will have an opportunity for more input on how you want yours to look!
That’s all for now. Thanks to everyone who’s helped make our dream possible!
Feel free to mail me and ask me anything.

Can you hear that? That nothing you are hearing is the sound of the Boot Hill Heroes nonexistent soundtrack. But thanks to your $30 donation we are one step closer to affording game music.

You look kinda pixelated, you NPC! There are a lot of cowtown folk in this game and we'd love for you to be one of them. $50 gets your likeness rendered to a character sprite and plopped into one of the seven towns in the game. You can even have your own name and write your own dialogue - just watch the potty mouth please! You'll also get a color printed copy and digital file (8.5x11) of your NPC so you can show everyone what you'd look like as a 16-bit wild west fella. (Plus previous reward tiers)Estimated delivery:

NEW! Having your own NPC is good, but where’s he going to live? We’re adding a new town just for our backers called Kickstart Creek, and real estate is available! You will get your own one-room house that you can design based on the different designs and objects we have available. Choose the structure, interior design, and furnishings. We’ll create up to five original objects for you to decorate your house that you request as long as they are appropriate for the setting. Note that Kickstart Creek is not guaranteed to be in the game, in which case you can relocate your house to one of six other towns of your choice. (Plus previous reward tiers – including an NPC in the game who can live at this house)Estimated delivery:

16 backers Limited (4 left of 20)
Choose your side: the brave heroes of the Boot Hill Posse or the merciless villains of the Saints-Little gang. A pledge of $250 allows you to design a character to join either group. Your character will play a significant role in the game as either a former member of the original Boot Hill Posse or a member of the Saints-Little gang who just escaped from prison. This is no small reward and we are limiting this one to 20 people (10 for each side). We'll work with you to design your character how you want him or her. You may have quests to assign the player, give them a valuable item, or reveal part of the story. If you're lucky, you might even be a boss fight. (Plus previous reward tiers)Estimated delivery:
