The Final Stretch Goals are Unlocked!
Some said it couldn't be done, but with less than 24 hours left to go, you have accomplished the remarkable feat of raising over $400,000, which means that this Kickstarter has left the realm of simply dubbing existing materials... Now, thanks to your dedication, this campaign will be producing at least one brand-new episode of Wakfu!
"At least one?" you might ask.
"Oh yes..." we reply. "Because although it might seem impossible, we have prepared not one, not two, but three additional stretch goals here for the final hours of the campaign. Please, let us share them with you..."
Permit us to draw your attention to the first of the new stretch goals, number 7. This goal unlocks an important portion of Krosmoz history, just for you... the origins of the Smug Duck. This interactive comic will give you a glimpse into the secret life of this enigmatic figure... what other precious secrets is he hiding?
And if even this isn't enough Smug Duck for you, we are holding a little contest. If you want the Smug Duck to get a cameo in the new special episode, let us know by using the hashtag #WakfuSmugDuck on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or, alternatively, just whisper it to yourself as you snuggle into bed at night and we will hear it through the mystic flow of Wakfu that connects us all.
Stretch goal number 8 will give us the budget to produce a mini-feature for the making-of the new special Wakfu episode. We will follow our production team through the entire process, from conception to completion, showing you how Ankama produces the fine animation that you've so generously supported!
And finally... because we believe that miracles can happen (after all, we've seen so many of them happen in this very campaign), we are including one final reward for you, stretch goal number 9 - a second special Wakfu episode! Could yet another dream become a reality? We'll find out in 24 hours...
Whatever happens between now and then, we can't thank you enough for all of your feedback, your generosity, and your wonderful support! The team is preparing a small token of their gratitude for you as well, which we'll share after the project is complete. We love you all!
Updated Delivery Dates
Production of the three post-Season 2 specials is not complete yet, and production for the new special episode cannot begin until the others are done, which means that we must push back the delivery date for all pledges including Blu-Rays.
At this point, we are aiming for October 2014 for delivery of all Blu-Ray pledges depending on our production schedule
The FAQs and page information will be updated accordingly.
Ideally, we should have been able to announce this change earlier, and we apologize in advance to anyone who has their plans disrupted by this delivery date adjustment.
At this time, we are looking into some alternatives for delivery of the new special episode should its production run long, but we will keep you informed as the post-project phase begins and production moves forward.
