Within Striking Distance - New Backer Rewards - Pixel Art!
Greetings my fellow earth dwellers! On to the news.
Within Striking Distance!
Things are very exciting, as in the last few days we've gone from modestly approaching the 5K goal to looking like we might achieve it in the next day or so. This is amazing! Everyone's support has been great and I thank all of you. If all of you can guilt just one other person into donating tomorrow, we'd easily achieve the 5K goal and the game would be guaranteed a release.
As we're nearing that, I wanted to ask all of you to consider any features or stretch goals you think would enhance the project. If you think of something don't hesitate to message me, post it in the comments, or e-mail me through the 14 hours productions website. While we don't guarantee their use, we will consider each one, so let us know what you think would be fun and what you're hoping for.
New Backer Rewards!
In other news there are some new backer rewards. We've added a 200 dollar point and a 250 dollar point. The 200 dollar point is for getting an object you design, like a bench, or a fountain, dedicated to whoever you want (with a little plaque or similar inscription) in the game. The 250 point is the only physical reward we'll be offering. We're going to make 25 physical box copies of the game with an included physical instruction booklet and OST. This will be limited to the first 25 contributors who donate 250 dollars or more. It's a lot of money but that kind of generosity will be rewarded with one of the only copies in existence! So, they're special. OooOOOooo.
Yesterday our lead artist did a livestream of some pixel art. He did a basic walk animation, some ghosts, and a bench. He doesn't want me to show off the bench as he thinks it came out ugly.
I don't know if you can see the walk cycle. It lacks some motion in the head and body but is a great work-in-progress! Look at that! Assets are being made and who doesn't love a ghost dog? He plans to do more live streams as we get closer to the end of the kickstarter, so anyone who wants to see him do one keep an eye out on these updates.

A new article by Colin Mclsaac over at Gamnesia featured us! Thanks Colin! Great of you to write about Boon Hill. He mentions that we only need 1,500 dollars more and while that quickly became out of date, that is only because of support like his.

That's all for today, thanks for your support! Talk to you soon.
