      Can we get an update???

      I'm @ Curator level - how do I go about suggesting books for inclusion? (I know you want me to use Proj. Gutenberg, but how should I send suggestions to you all?) Also, I upgraded from the Playtester Level to the Curator level - does that mean I lost the opportunity to be a play-tester? Cuz that's sad to me. :-) Thanks for putting such a great game concept together!

      Same as Carol, as an Android user ! But even knowing I won’t be able to play, the game sounded too fun to not back it :)

      Congrats on making your funding goal...but I am sad that we won't be getting the Android version. This means I won't be able to play - but please do keep my name on your mailing list for future possible Android games. Keep on playing!

      As a Curator-level backer, I'd be very happy to help increase the diversity of the library.

      Hi Sarah, thanks for bringing this up, we totally agree. We are definitely attentive to the diversity of the authors whose works will be used in the game. The curators's selections we are showing are a small percentage of the works we plan to include. If you check out some of the authors in the video and our other images, you'll see more gender parity, though, to be fair, there is still work to be done to include increase the number of works by people of color.

      One of the limiting factors for us is working with literature in the public domain, or that have been released under copyleft licenses. We are still in the process of building out the initial library of books that will be included in the game. As we continue this, we will continue to work for gender and race parity in our game.

      Also: thanks for backing us, much appreciated.

      Looks very cool! I'm a little worried though that of the curated books currently displayed, only 10% of them are by women authors and only one is by a POC. I think given the vast quantity of amazing books out there even if you limit it to those considered "classics" that you can do better than that. Please consider it as you refine your book list.

      Victoria, we plan to run the private beta for the PLAYTESTER tier by the end of 2016.

      Adriaan, our plan is to "gift" the game. (For those unfamiliar with the vagaries of Apple App Store policies, this means Local No. 12 will buy a copy of the game for each backer that gets the game as part of their reward tier.) The gifting plan is based on how things work with Apple now, and could change between now and fulfillment based on changes to Apple's policies.

      How do you plan to give backers the game? Gifting? Testflight? Through an enterprise account?

      Do you know a rough ETA on when the game will be available for the private beta?
