I had a feeling when I woke up, today was going to be a day I wouldn’t soon forget. I cannot imagine I will forget this day as long as I live. We just passed the original Root campaign’s funding in less than 14 hours! What! How is this even possible? You have to be kidding me! Obviously funded and then some! Thank you everyone! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I would also like to thank my team that worked diligently to help me design and develop this expansion, getting the campaign ready, and help answer your questions. A message in an update cannot possibly convey how thankful I am to the backers and to my employees.
A few people have noted the lack of stretch goals. We have decided to forgo them this campaign and offer the free things up front. This keeps the design manageable and allows us to deliver a quality product to you. That being said as the whim strikes us we reserve the right to add stretch goals.
Tonight and all weekend I am at SXSW. Cole and I will be demoing the expansion Friday and Saturday. On Sunday we will be talking about the creation of Root. So yeah I flew on the day I launched a Kickstarter!
Well thanks everyone! I look forward to speaking with you more over the next few weeks. Good night!
