A little over one month ago, I had just finalized and posted this kickstarter campaign and was walking with my best friend to get ready for a college graduation party, when I turned to him and expressed that I was worried that one month wouldn't be enough to reach the $7000 goal. He wasn't buying it, and told me that I was stupid for thinking that the project would only barely succeed.
And now, fast forwarding to the present, I must admit that having raised 440% of the desired funding.............I was wrong, and he was right.
Which is great for us, because that means ELDET WILL BE MADE INTO A FULL GAME!!
I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to you all for donating to the campaign, spreading word to friends, family, writers, podcast hosts, etc, that this demo was out, and that you believed in the importance of putting racially diverse lgbt characters front and center. The process thus far has been a fascinating experience, but now the bulk of the work lies ahead--and I must say, I couldn't be more excited!!
Now--for important information:
In the next couple of days, I will be sending out "surveys" which will be used to gather the following information:
1) acquire your name, or initials, or a pseudonym, or record you as "anonymous donor" for use in a credit sequence at the end of the game, thanking all donors to the campaign for making the full game possible.
2) acquire your email, which will be used to deliver your copy of the game, or copy of the game + soundtrack, or copy of the game + soundtrack + special edition guide, or copy of the game + soundtrack + special edition guide + $80, $150, or $200 tier rewards, upon release of the game.
3) Issue specific instructions regarding what information I will need from donors who pledged into the $80, $150, and $200 rewards in order to complete your headshot and full body portraits.
As I mentioned above, these surveys will be sent out in the next couple of days, please be on the lookout for them (I'll post another update when I send them out). They are CRUCIAL for me being able to deliver your rewards to you!
That's all for now, again--thank you all so much. You've made this possible, and now, it's happening!
