Trick or treat, Kickstarters?! We are now 450+ strong, 40% funded, and a Kickstarter Staff Pick! Thank you all for your support as we work to make BatteryBot a reality.
Halloween is one of our favorite days of the year at Mimoco, and to show our appreciation this glorious Halloween 2013, we only have treats for our loyal BatteryBot backers ^_^
In the spirit of Halloween, we want to use this update to shine the spotlight on our Kickstarter exclusive design, Terry Le Bat, which is available at all BatteryBot reward levels above $40.
Terry Le Bat could not be a more perfect BatteryBot mascot. He’s a bat! ...and he’s a battery! Hence, ‘Terry for short. He’s a nocturnal creature, thriving in the wee hours of the night – waiting and ready for exactly that moment when your mobile needs a jolt after a long day of heavy use. And as you know Terry is a KS exclusive, which is why he sports the colors of KS with green highlights on his sleek black BatteryBot body.
For our first treat we’ve cooked up a fun Terry Le Bat wallpaper, because who doesn't like bats?! You can download the zip file here with wallpaper sizes for your desktop, mobile, and tablet.
Our second treat is a behind the scenes look at the character design evolution of Terry Le Bat. He wasn’t always looking so sly. In fact, as you can see from the art below, previous iterations had blood dripping from Terry’s fangs (too messy), or wide-eyed and rosy cheeked with a “K” crown on his head (too cute), or all face with gaping wide mouth (too scary and ugly)! What do you think? Did we choose the right incarnation of Terry Le Bat as our Kickstarter exclusive?
We also want to thank you for posting your licensed characters suggestions in the comments sections. So far responses include Star Wars, Minecraft, Bruce Lee, Einstein, Hello Kitty, Badtz Maru, Adventure Time, My Little Pony, Futurama, Walking Dead, Back To The Future, Judge Dredd, Indiana Jones, Big Bang Theory, Batman, and Magic the Gathering! Please keep the suggestions rolling along.
