Plush Yorick skulls have been unlocked! May I just say: OMG
Yesterday I was talking about breaking the $250k threshold and today we broke $275k. I keep saying "thank you" but it keeps being insanely sincere! You guys are the best.
With that $275k threshold, we've unlocked YORICK SKULL SQUISHABLES. Think of Wee Rex (they'll be the same size), but an adorable cuddly skull instead of a neon green dinosaur! He'll be the cutest way to contemplate mortality ever in time. We don't have a prototype to show you yet, but I do have one of the sketches that Squishable and I have been working on for this bad boy. This is a thing that is definitely happening! AHHHHH. IS THIS REAL LIFE?
These bad boys are being included at the $60 "I Want To Put Things On My Body And Walls" tier and above. To get them, just make sure you've selected one of those tiers as your pledge reward! You can alter your pledge on the project page: just hit the "Manage pledge" button. And you can see a hand complete list of all rewards at all tier levels on this page I made for you because I think you're great!
There's but a single stretch goal left, and it is the insanely mysterious ?????? one at the $300k level. That last level affects all copies of the book in all mediums and that's all I can say right now! Hopefully we will find out more soon?
For the story, we'd left it playing as Ophelia, with Hamlet reading from a choose-your-own-path book he wrote himself. He was trying to get us to admit to killing a dude. Do we go with OPTION AFFIRMATIVE and say that we did, or do we deny it with OPTION NEGATORY? Votes indicate that OPTION NEGATORY was the clear winner, and votes ALSO indicate that it's hard to rhyme with "negatory" because there weren't many couplets this time so oh well, I'll pick some better Kickstarter-only option names for you guys this time!
"No." you say.
Hamlet raises an eyebrow, then turns to a different page and begins reading.
"Liar!!" he shouts. "You totally killed your brother by poisoning him in the ear! You should admit it right now." He then looks at you. You stare back at him, evenly.
"Your choices are to admit it or not admit it," he finally says.
Wow that was short! Vote for what to do next in the comments; your options are:
OPTION RUDOLPH: Admit it
OPTION FROSTY: Do not admit it
On Monday we will return and find out WHAT PRECISELY WE ARE DOING, HERE IN FICTION LAND
