Update #2

Ilana - Add-Ons - Alpha Versions - Reddit


Hey everyone, Dani here again. We have officially crossed the 40% mark!! For less than a week, we are doing pretty good! Thanks so so much for spreading the word and helping us move forward. Don’t forget to check out / vote on the Steam Greenlight as well if you haven’t already.

First Stretch Goal! -

$50k - Russian / German + 1 voted language support! 

Our goal is to make the game as accessible to players as possible. So this first small stretch goal will make sure even more players will be able to experience Bloom comfortably. 


Since this post might feel a bit empty, here is a portrait of Ilana I did yesterday. She is one of the early characters you encounter, and may be of great help on your journey. A young solitary archer, Ilana's battles aren't always the ones you can see.

Also, in an effort to keep the email spam from updates down, we have set up a sub-reddit for everyone. This saves the kickstarter updates for larger substantial posts.

Then, if you are having trouble with the pre-alpha, make sure you are running the latest version (new builds now check to make sure you have the latest). The last few days James has been tirelessly working to get all the bugs sorted out. On the bright side, it has helped us clean up the engine a lot as we try to support more machines! Just some of the growing pains of alpha and developing for PCs.

And, for those having trouble donating, we will be setting up a paypal as we get closer to the goal, so stay tuned :) 

Anyhow, I've gotten a lot of requests for specific items (those who ONLY want the game and the plush, for example), so we are adding add-ons! Basically, these work by simply upping your pledge by the amount of the add-on. Then, after the campaign, we will be sending out a survey where everyone can select how they want to divvy up their pledge amount. This cuts down on confusion and makes sure no one gets lost. 

The tiers themselves are a better value, but if you only want a specific thing, add-ons can be pretty great savers. 

Digital Add-Ons 

  • Extra Copy of the Game – $10
  • OST (Music) – $10
  • Digital Art-book – $10
  • Companion – $15 

Physical Add-Ons 

  • T-shirt – $30 (+10 for shipping outside of US) 
  • Signed Archival Print – $35 (+10 for shipping outside of US) 
  • Plushy!! – $45 (+15 for shipping outside of US) 
  • Signed Extended Art-Book – $75 (+15 for shipping outside of US) 

Hope this helps, and please let me know if there are any topics you want us to cover as we go on. Thanks again for all of the support!
