One Month Later...
It has been about one month since the close of our first Tomb of Tyrants campaign, and I know some of you are wondering when the next one is coming and why I've been so quiet.
Status of the Next Campaign
Well, the next one is coming "soon." I had intended to only give life a week or two to catch up after the last campaign, but boy, did it catch up! I have had a whirlwind month of life changes and family events, but fortunately, the game is still on track and looking great! The campaign gave me a huge motivation boost, and even with everything else going on, I had a very productive month. However, I have remained deathly quiet the entire time, because--in addition to having nary a spare moment to post--I have also been hoarding my best bits for the future campaign's updates.
I am still nailing down the language for the next campaign's page; it's mostly similar to the last one, but you can preview it here. I've prepped some layout graphics, and I'll be adding illustrative images and headers tomorrow as I revisit and finalize each section, but I always appreciate more input. The reward tiers have been shifted in value and quantity a bit, and I've settled on a goal of $1,500.
Also, I can't name the next campaign the same thing as this one, so I've gone with "Tomb of Tyrants (The Rematch)" for now, but if anyone can come up with something more clever or just more professional, I'd love to hear it--perhaps just "(Relaunch)" would be better than going for the pun?
I just wrapped the first draft of the new Kickstarter trailer, which you can watch here or on the preview page. I plan to do another pass right before launch, but this was cut together over a piano piece I wrote just for the trailer. The game does not have a definitive soundtrack yet, and the footage is a couple of weeks old, so it is still missing a few bells and whistles, but hopefully this is an improvement over the last Kickstarter. I am also putting together a straight gameplay demonstration video, similar to the one I used last time--it just won't be the header video this time around. Let me know what you think =)!
