Have a question?
Hope we see all the songs that have been weeded out for too few votes return and then have a fresh set of runoffs to whittle the list to 36......?
@Rosie Frater - Holy cow. I'm a HUGE Death Cab fan. I'd LOVE to see "Soul Meets Body" or really anything off Plans in this game.
I thought I’d missed my chance focus submit songs, but then HOORAY EXPANSION!
“Steal My Sunshine” - LEN
“Chelsea Dagger” - The Fratellis
“Soul Meets Body” - Death Cab For Cutie
I'm a teacher....so I'm totally going to use this in class. ^_^
Ok..... that’s kinda awesome.
I think I’ll go change my pledge. :-)
@KZ - These songs we did for a previous campaign are a good indicator of the song you'd receive.
We sent out surveys to everyone who got the theme song level before, and that's how we crafted the lyrics and feel of each. Your answers to the survey will dictate what it sounds like. This one is one of my faves we made: https://vstheuniverse.bandcamp.com/track/michi-trota
How long is the theme song? Like how long can it be? Do we help with the lyrics? Genre?
We've opened up five more theme song pledges!
Congrats on hitting your goal!!
@KZ - Great questions! We'll have a good idea of when we can deliver the PnP when we get the voting done for the 36-Card Expansion y'all unlocked earlier this week. We need to do typesetting on the cards and have our artist make the new characters for the $250 pledge level, but we *may* be able to get it out before all of that is figured out.
We'll do our best to deliver accurate timelines as we nail down what our collaborators are able to provide us with.
As for late backing, it might be too early to tell right now. I'm hoping to have an answer to that by our livestream tonight.
@Creator When can we get the PnP?
I'm excited for this one. I think that would help get people to late back.
Speaking of late backing... will late backing count towards the SG total? I've seen it go both ways on different KS campaigns.
Yayyyyyyyyy!!! I am pushing HARD for the first stretch goal. I need to find a way to get Once Upon A December into this game. And definitely down with KZ's goal of free shipping as well.
C'mon 30K! I'd love free shipping.
Way to go! Congrats!!
Finally got to back this!!! So happy it will be funded. Looking forward to playing this and getting all of those crazy songs out of my head. LOL Congratulations on a fun campaign.
You did it!! Congratulations!
Ah! 8 HOURS. Go, go, go!
Heard about this on the Modifier podcast. Absolutely love the idea.
I’ve shared with some friend.
Everyone.... buy an extra copy and donate it to the local high school show choir
@KZ - *STAR WARS VOICE* - Stay on target...
If all of the current backers can throw 10 dollars more in, that would more than surpass the goal. I'm in. How about the rest of you?
I'm going to give you four, in case you want to save the first one for the Musical Expansion. (There MUST be a Musical Expansion.)
Over the Rainbow written by Harold Arlen, performed by Judy Garland
Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter, Paul, & Mary
California Girls by The Beach Boys
River of Dreams by Billy Joel
I also think a Christmas Expansion would be brilliant.
"Last Train to Clarksville"-- the Monkees
"High School Never Ends" -- Bowling For Soup
"Sweet Caroline"-- Neil Diamond
"Happy Hour" -- the Housemartins
"Mickey" -- Toni Basil
"Best of Both Worlds"-- Hannah Montana
If they have already come up, my apologies. I'm late to the backing!
Update: 142 shares! 8 left to go until we get that expansion!
@Aaron, i’ve been watching a lot of Supernatural recently and remembered how much I love that song
Update: 120 shares! 30 left to go until we get that expansion!
@Daniel Anthony Smith: Dang. Now that I realize we DON’T have that Kansas song in there I really want to vote for it.
Dave Dobbyn - Slice Of Heaven (https://www.youtube.com/watch…)
Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son (https://www.youtube.com/watch…)
The Smith Street Band - Young Drunk ( https://www.youtube.com/watch…)
@Jennifer Ward: being a HUGE TMBG fan I would love to see these in the game! Birdhouse In My Soul is incredible!
@Diane Lopez: I would love to have Green Day in there just because it means a lot of teams would be yelling “GOOD RIDDANCE” at players!
Losing My Religion - REM
Good Riddance - Green Day
Burning Down the House - Talking Heads
Thanks for letting me share my picks!
Being a huge TMBG fan, might I suggest:
Your Racist Friend
Birdhouse in Your Soul
@Joseph La Dow: Fantastic variety there. Fun fact: my grade school music teacher loved Rob Zombie and taught us to play that on the RECORDER. It sounded awful. Just awful.
We are all musical theatre people, or work in the business here in Chicago. If we can make a dedicated Musical Theatre expansion work then you can bet we will.
Dragula by Rob Zombie
One Headlight by The Wallflowers
Defying Gravity from Wicked (or a Broadway expansion in the future)
@Jenny Seay - Jenny I'm gonna tell you right now I'll be voting for DMX. They're all great submissions but DMX is inspired.
@Uncle Bob - Convoy is a great submission! More country!
Here are my three suggestions:
Addicted to Love - Robert Palmer
X Gon' Give it to Ya - DMX
Free Fallin' - Tom Petty
Convoy by CW McCall. :D
I'd be amused (and probably the only one...)
Hope this is successful - my wife will love this game.
UPDATE: We're currently at 92 shares out of 150 for the 36-card expansion! Only a little more to go...
@Eliane Mullen - We playtested with some Elvis songs when we started development but little by little they got worked out of the deck. If we can get that 36-card expansion in the game then there's definitely room for him. "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" would be A+.
@KZ - We've been agonizing over whether to add instrumentals this early in the process. We had plans for an expansion of works that didn't have lyrics in them but if those types of songs get voted in then anything is game.
How about some songs w/OUT words?
Star Wars: Imperial March
Scott Joplin: The Entertainer
And the good-ole ABC song?
The devil went down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels band
Golden eye by Tina Turner
Uptown girl by Billy Joël
Oh Is there any elvis presley in the deck? cause if not you should definitely add atleast one song if his to the expension deck.
Don't Speak - No Doubt
@Kay Clopton - OOOOH Gorillaz! Nice!
Gnarls Barkley - Crazy
Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc.
k.d. lang - Constant Craving
If any of these have already been suggested, I apologize!
There's no Muse in the polling. :(
Time to add
Muse - Plug in Baby
@Heather Hostetler - We are definitely planning on producing genre/decade specific expansion packs in the event that we get funded. We're all big fans of different areas of music and cutting the deck down to 200 base cards was already super difficult! I'd *love* to get more 90's pop in there, or more modern billboard chart hits. We'll poll our backers after the campaign to see what they'd like to see more of and go from there.
BTW - The Cardigans/Mariah Carey are GREAT picks. Maybe we'll see more of them in the future...
It was so hard to narrow down songs to submit! I so wanted to include Mariah Carey, Florence + the machine, Amy Winehouse, The Cardigans, and so many more. I kept thinking of songs and artists that would be fun to sing who had unique riffs in their songs. Do y'all plan to release expansions to the game? You could do 70s, 80s, 90s song packs or "classic rock" etc. I would happily buy expansions to quadruple the card count. :)
@Heather - OOOH, I love that JT song and “Shut Up And Dance” is so good! I’ll need to check out the last one I don’t know!
Finally submitting my three:
Cry Me A River - Justin Timberlake
Breakeven - The Script
Shut Up And Dance - Walk The Moon
@Michael Burgett - Holy cow those are strong choices. I *LOVE* "My Hero."
