Three Kingdoms Stretch Goal and New Digital Soundtrack Rewards
Hi guys. We are creeping up on our next major stretch goal, Co-op multiplayer! We have a couple of exciting announcements for you as we approach the Kickstarter's home stretch.
New Stretch Goals
We've added new major stretch goals at $500,000 and $600,000. We've already achieved a lot of stretch goals, which is incredible, but at the same time we don't want to bite off more than we can chew. So we're reducing the number of minor stretch goals to ensure that we can finish every goal in time for the game's release.
Here are descriptions for the newly unveiled stretch goals: Festivals, Upgraded Musical Score, and Three Playable Kingdoms.
Festivals: Join your townsfolk as they celebrate popular holidays like Solstice, Harvest, and The Monday of The Twelve Golden Fruit. Properly provisioned festivals produce happy, energetic workers. Forgotten events invite the wrath of greater powers...
“Though color variations make it clear at which point in its cycle the banana ought to be eaten, the proper way to hold the fruit is still debated. Though all scholars agree that the curved, nearly hexagonal shape fits the human fist, accounts vary as to whether the golden peel should be pulled back from the stem (as is traditional) or up from the black nub at the bottom. Either way, so please the gods.”
--Celebrant Jordan, Treatises on the Rituals of The Monday of the Twelve Golden Fruit
Upgraded Musical Score: The Japanese RPGs from which Stonehearth draws its artistic inspiration were as much defined by their soundtrack as their visual style. Help us draw on the talent of a variety of professional musicians to create an enticing score that will stand up to a decade’s worth of play.
Three Playable Kingdoms: Hardy explorers and canny traders join our hardworking settlers in their quest to build, farm, and fight their way across the land. At the start of each game, choose one of the three kingdoms, each with its own unique perks. Click here for a high resolution version of the image of the three kingdoms.
New $75 Reward Tier, Digital Soundtrack
A lot of you have asked for a reward tier between $50 and $100. By far the most requested perk was a digital soundtrack, so that's what we did! For $75 you can now get all the benefits of our $50 tier, plus a digital download of the full Stonehearth soundtrack.
New Gameplay Footage
We sent out a special pre-pre-alpha build to a few YouTube channels to help promote the kickstarter. If you'd like to see some more gameplay footage, you can check them out here. Please keep in mind that this super early build is very light on gameplay. It's just a taste of what's to come.
That's it for now. We do have more developer live streams planned over the next two weeks, and I'll send out an update once we have them scheduled!
