Backer Update 2 - 15% funded, Stream tonight, #ThroughTheBeards

Posted by Antagonist (Creator)

 It's time for the second update, now with a spiffy banner as well!

First of all, thank so so much to everyone who's helped out by becoming a backer and/or sharing the project. We really do depend on you guys to make this a reality!

In a little over a day we crossed the 15% mark of funding, excellent news, this means we are on the right track. The first few days are often very important in a campaign, and we need your help to share the project to reach as many as possible. 

First video-update tomorrow!

Tomorrow we'll do our first video-update, where we plan to quickly show you our office, and we're also announcing our first contest tomorrow! It's something for you creative people, so check out the video tomorrow if you want the chance to win some cool prices!

We want to give a special shout-out to Jonathan Wettby, who's gone above and beyond by contacting some of his favorite sites to try and get us some extra coverage. Thank you so much! 

Stream tonight

In around 1 hour, at 24:00 CEST, SayeedBlack will be streaming the prototype on his Twitch channel. You should consider checking it out if you don't mind getting the prototype spoiled for you (if you haven't played it yet, there's still time!), we will definitely be watching. And feel free to send us a link if you plan to do similar things. We'd love to check out how people play with the game, we've seen a few Let's Play's already, and it's both entertaining but also valuable feedback for us to see how people interact with the game.


We've gotten a few comments about the facial furniture of our Creative Director, Ole, and our Producer, Anders. Apparently some people might go as far as call them epic beards!

So much that people actually started sending us images of themselves with their own epic Through the Woods beards!

 This one looks quite a bit like antlers as well!

 And our favorite one so far!

Amazing! These fantastic people also used these pictures as their profile pictures in social media to draw more attention to our campaign, and it has definitely worked!

We'd love to see more bearded faces! So we hope you'll follow up and send us your best #ThroughTheBeards photo! We've added a template you can use at the bottom of this post so you can quickly make your beardified photo, but feel free to come up with your own version! We'll share our favorite ones in future updates.

Thank you so much for joining us by the campfire for the rest of the story!
