Let's go for Celestial Steampunk Timekeeper Rats!
Over 100 of you have backed Summoners Fate. Thank you! Kelly and I really appreciate your support. Together, we are well on the way to not only exceeding our funding goal, but hitting our first stretch goal: Celestial Steampunk Timekeeper Rats!
The Joy of Working Together
Several of you have suggested I spend a little more time talking about our team and what we go through making this game. I'd like to thank all of you for sharing this idea. You inspired this article that I wrote about Kelly and how we started working together!
It's entitled "Why Hiring My Wife was my Best Decision as an Indie Dev" and it's certainly worth a read. Working over 80+ hours a weeks means sacrificing time with those you care about most. By working with Kelly, we're spending more time together and this has made our relationship and the game better than ever. To read more, click here.
Stretch Goal Update
In our last update, I shared some sketches of these wonderful creatures, and today I'm excited to share these beautiful full color renders that our art team graciously made a top priority. From left to right, we have the Time Bombardier, a ranged unit that can throw "time bombs" that damage and slow enemy movement, the Time Keeper, a powerful Summoner with the power to cast Celestial Time Spells, and the Time Warrior, a cunning melee fighter with hyper speed and lightning reflexes.
Here is a selection of some of the Celestial Time spells we've created so far. Time manipulation mechanics such as these are one of many unique innovations we aim to bring to the tactics and CCG genres.

Social Goals Update
Congratulations, everyone! In the past two days, you've helped us hit 3 more social goals: 100 backers on Kickstarter, 400 Twitter followers, and 25 forum members! Just one more goal to hit to unlock the new reward. Several goals are very close as you can see below. Be sure to submit your vote for reward on our forums here.
Another Awesome Project
Imagine what would happen if instead of playing the role of the hero seeking to fulfill quests, you played the role of a guild leader and dished out the quests... That's the premise in The Quest Giver, another awesome indie project here on Kickstarter.
The Quest Giver is a 2D Fantasy guild manager simulation, in which you create your own quests and send adventurers to go do them. Check out their Kickstarter project here.
