We've reached our goal!
If someone had told me 20 days ago that we would reach our $5,000.00 dollar goal in less than 3 weeks, I would have laughed in disbelief. But, I would have been wrong, and I would have felt pretty foolish.
Thanks to the support of 97 fantastic people, we have reached AND exceeded our goal of $5000.00 dollars. And we still have 40 days to go. So what's next?
Well, the rest of the team and I sat down and decided to increase the limits on some of the higher end rewards, specifically the $200.00 and $300.00 dollar rewards.
We cannot increase the $500.00 reward as it currently is, due to the story related components, but we will be creating an additional $500.00 reward category of equal value.
You might ask why?
Any additional pledge money that comes in after the $5000.00 dollar mark will go towards improving upon game. Namely, any additional money pledged will go towards funding for animated cutscenes for the game. We have recently gotten in contact with an animation studio who will be able to create animated cutscenes based on Flora Li's amazing art. For those of you that aren't familiar with the production costs of cutscenes, they can be expensive. On average, it's about $1000.00 dollars for 2 minutes of quality animation, depending on how involved the animation is.
Ideally, we would like 30 minutes of good quality animation, but we realize that such a goal might be set a little high. We would like to at least be able to have an game opening animation and a game ending animation.
