Hello, everyone! Please forgive the EXTREMELY late follow-up to our last update... Things got hectic last summer, and then we totally forgot to post updates here. -_-; Just for reference, the most updated Tokyo Demons info can be found on the Sparkler Monthly Tokyo Demons Page.
First of all, in addition to the ebook, I'm happy to say that at Christmas, Book 2 finally came out in paperback:
After the incredibly rocky time we had finalizing this book, I'm so proud of the final product, and it absolutely would not have happened without the support of all of you. So again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you--each and every one of you. <3
Second of all, we want to properly close this Kickstarter in the near future (can you believe it's been 4 years?!), but there are some of you who never claimed your tiers. If that includes you, you're still entitled to what you paid for, so just let me know and we'll get you your stuff! You can message me through Kickstarter or (preferably) email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
However, this leads to my next point...
Third of all, there are actually a few rewards of this Kickstarter still pending (which I'm SUPER embarrassed about). We clearly overstretched ourselves, and some of these have been really difficult to finish, even if the lion's share of the work is done.
$100 and up pledges: The Book 1 Dramatized Audio Book was finished ages ago, but we've been stuck in lengthy post-production trying to remaster some of those tracks and record the last bit of bonus content. All of you will get an email about this shortly, because at the very least, I can send you an updated digital version while we work on finishing up the Complete CD set.
Stretch Goal Status:
$4,000, flashback short story of character chosen by poll [complete]: Press START To Continue (Adam)
$5,000, flashforward short story from Tokyo Ghosts [incomplete]: This will be released closer to the end of the series, since we started worrying about spoilers. :)
$6,000, Tokyo Demons Talk/Character CD [complete]: Miki Date CD
$7,000, Tokyo Demons tactical card game [incomplete]: This will also be released closer to the end of the series (production updates can be seen here)
$8,000, vote-dictated short story [complete]: Fukuhashi Fight Club
$9,000, video game: Although we didn't hit this Stretch Goal, through the help of Desiree K., this is actually still happening! It's just been restructured heavily, and will now take place (and be released) after Tokyo Demons: Book 3 to bridge the time period between Tokyo Demons: Book 3 and Tokyo Ghosts: Book 1.
Speaking of Tokyo Demons: Book 3--we're about halfway done with that by now! Read online here. :D
Thank you so much for your patience, sorry again for the sporadic updates, and we'll talk again soon. Don't be afraid to message me here or through email (email@example.com) if you have any questions, concerns, or want to close your pledge here in some other way...for example, if you want to swap out a pending reward with the paperback of Book 2 or an ebook subscription to Book 3 or something. Whatever makes you happy!
Thanks so much,
