Breaking the 30% Barrier!
Unwritten looks set to pass 30% of our goal very soon, which is a big accomplishment for both the project and for all our supportive backers. Kickstarter itself talks about 30% funding being a crucial tipping point for a project, especially if that is reached before halfway through the campaign. We're hitting that with plenty of time to spare, and we couldn't have done it without everybody that has gone above and beyond to help us get the word out about the game!
That said, getting much needed exposure is still our single biggest challenge. Thankfully, having involved and passionate backers is one of our biggest strengths! If you read a game site or blog, please be sure to contact them directly and ask to see Unwritten featured there. You may also pass along our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for interview requests. We have already talked to a few sites and are waiting for these to go to press, but the more chances we get to talk about the game the more we can help to get others excited about Unwritten's potential!
Now for a few points of housekeeping. Lee has created an alternate design for the print poster, inspired by M.C. Escher's "tessellations". It has a cool, abstract quality and is definitely worth a look.
Note that we've also dropped the tier price for the printed poster to make it a bit more accessible to people.
We still have an update on the game's visual style coming, but it's taking us a few days longer than we expected to get all our contributors together on it. If, thanks to your tireless efforts, we are able to reach our funding goal, challenges like that will be a thing of the past!
