Pre-orders and post-Kickstarter
Hello residents of Gloomhaven!
Now that we're not in the whirlwind of the Kickstarter, it feels like it's been ages since I've talked to you. I guess it's only been 2 days, though.
Anyway, the first thing I'd like to talk about is pre-orders. I know it doesn't directly pertain to backers, but I'd like to briefly address people who come across the project with the intent of pre-ordering the game:
Hello, how are you? Pre-ordering the game is very simple. Just click on the "Pre-order!" button to the right of the video at the top of the page. For the next week, the pre-order will get you the exact same game as the Kickstarter at the exact same price delivered at the exact same time. This time is for the people who can't / don't use Kickstarter for whatever reason to get in on the project with no down-side.
It's as simple as that, and we welcome you aboard.
Okay cool. Now I'd like to address people concerned about surveys and upping their pledge to get more stuff:
Hello, yes, I am doing well. As long as you have pledged some amount of money to the campaign, there's no need to worry. When the project is ready to go to print (i.e. December or January), a survey will be sent out. On the survey you can specify any additional purchases you'd like to make or changes to your original pledge and there will be instructions on how to send the money difference through Kickstarter to me.
The surveys won't go out for a few months, but in the mean time, there is absolutely no need to worry about it.
All right, great, now that that's over, what else is there to say? Over the next week I'll give you all an update every couple days about the state of the pre-order sales, and then after that I'll send out an update once a week on the general progress we've all been making.
Full disclosure: I didn't make any progress over the last two days. I binge-watched The Walking Dead and avoided eating any more pie.
Or, right, you'd probably rather hear about pre-order numbers. Over the last two days, we've done another $6,193 in pre-order sales, bringing the grand total to $392,297, which is pretty great! In two days, we've halved again the distance to $400,000.
So that's all there is to say for now. Expect a lot more updates from me in the coming months!
