Hello, everyone! VERY long time no talk! We're happy to say that we're here to finally close this Kickstarter?! :D It's been almost five years, and these characters have literally grown up alongside us...
We wanted to thank you for being so patient with us as we ran our first project (which we definitely overstretched on). Even now, there are a few pieces of the puzzle missing, but the key elements are in place and we want to bring this puppy home.
$100 and up pledges:
You should have received the FINAL Book 1 Dramatized Audio Book and all bonus material as a digital set in your email inbox this month (if not, email us at email@example.com and we'll resend the link). We originally promised a hard copy of the audio book, but with the technology changes over the last 5 years, making a bunch of CDs seems silly when many of you might not even have a CD drive anymore. :) Instead, we'd like to send you a bonus treat to make up for the fact that the audio book ended up a digital-only release. You can choose from the following:
-The Book 2 paperback
-The Tokyo Demons: Know What You Want Cherry Bomb bonus stories paperback (released in 2016)
-A special digital pack of the Know What You Want ebook, the brand-new Tokyo Ghosts Cherry Bomb story X-Mas, and the Situation Drama CD Bad Chemistry, an original audio drama with Alex O'Shea (the voice of Jo Oda in Tokyo Demons Audio).
(We'll be emailing you guys later today with these options, so you can reply directly to the email to let us know what you want!)
Stretch Goal Status:
$4,000, flashback short story of character chosen by poll [complete]: Press START To Continue (Adam)
$5,000, flash-forward short story from Tokyo Ghosts [finally complete!]: Tokyo Ghosts: Grow Up
$6,000, Tokyo Demons Talk/Character CD [complete]: Miki Date CD
$7,000, Tokyo Demons tactical card game [incomplete]: This is the one project that just keeps getting stalled, although we're still hoping to finish it one day. :( If we ever successfully get it out, we'll still announce it here and give you guys your promised discount on it! Sorry that this one got so tricky... You can always see the new Romy-chan art made especially for the game (and some sample cards/production updates) 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., we're still trying to do this. Again, it keeps getting stalled, but when we have info, we'll let you know!
Tokyo Demons: Book 3
Those of you who follow Sparkler probably know that Book 3 is now complete and free to read online. :D And now that the series is over and we're planning out the next series - Tokyo Ghosts - we'd like to turn Book 3 into a paperback, do a revised reprint of the Book 1 paperback to fix some errors, and manage a few other little things to close up this massive project (and the last 5+ years of our lives). As a result, we're planning to run another small Kickstarter for Tokyo Demons: The Complete Series, which is now four books long (Books 1-3 + Know What You Want). It might be very soon. We'll keep you posted. :)
