Since we passed $325K (a ludicrous number), we've unlocked a seventh preview story from our upcoming Machine of Death book, THIS IS HOW YOU DIE! (I show off the book proof in today's video – it's getting closer and closer to release!!) This story is called "BLUE FEVER" and it's by Ada Hoffmann. It's about a member of a royal court who must compose a 'deathsong' for a visiting dignitary. Read it right now:
Also, a kitten update! As you may remember, the 2500-backer goal was for me to videotape kittens romping in a pile of death cards. In the interest of getting the rompingest kittens possible, I've been in touch with a local shelter, and they've informed me that they are currently weaning kittens now, and the kittens will be in prime romping form in about 4 weeks. I didn't know, when I made that pledge, that it wasn't kitten season yet. The kittens were still green on the trees! But I have been informed that there will be plenty of kittens available for filming next month, so we'll look forward to that a bit later!
New backer goals
I also want to point out for those who haven't been paying laser-close attention to this campaign that I have added a few new backer tiers for jet-setters and members of royalty. They include:
- $299 – "GOAT STARE" – Any lesser tier that you want (except EARLY BIRD), PLUS we show your copy of the game to a goat before we ship it to you. (Photographic proof provided.)
- $369 – "IMPACT" – Any lesser tier that you want (except EARLY BIRD), PLUS your copy of the game ships completely destroyed. Includes a video of us destroying your copy of the game specifically, and calling you names while we do it.
- $488 – "PENNED" – Any lesser tier that you want (except EARLY BIRD), EXCEPT that your copy of the game features COMPLETELY BLANK CARDS that I have PERSONALLY HANDWRITTEN all the info back onto.
- $10,000 – "BAD DECISIONS" – A 4-hour MP3 of garbled, distorted, unlistenable wails of your name, screeched over and over and over and over by the foulest voices we can summon. No copy of the game is included with this tier. (To add a copy of the game, use our Add-On page.)
LET IT NEVER BE SAID that I did not listen to what the people want. To check out the full list of new backer tiers, check out the Kickstarter page!
