      I think your project looked quite compelling... but I don't see a lot of high-ticket Kickstarters succeed unless they've already got significant fanbases prior to launch. Instead of doing a huge multimedia experience for the full ticket, why not just do piecemeal? Try doing the e-book alone, for instance. Set your target a lot lower. If it succeeds, then you can set additional stretch goals for other formats.

      Hi Richard
      I am disappointed that the project has been canceled at this time but encouraged that you are saying that there will be a restart date. I feel that this time may not be a good time as people are into the holidays and just not taking the time to look at this great project. I have enjoyed seeing all the peolpe who have contributed and feel that this is a worthwhile and exciting project. Does this amount have to be raised in only a month? Thank you for all your hard work and your desire to see the project suceed.

      Hi Gwenaël,

      First: Thank you so much for contributing to the kickstarter project! I love that you want all the digital editions.

      Second: As for a special level that is all digital I can accommodate that through the $39.00 level. Leave out the shipping and let me know that you don't want the book and I'll just send you only the digital material.

      Creating new levels after the launch can get really confusing for people - I know I've done it before - so we don't want to create a new level if we can avoid it. But, I'm happy t accommodate you if you feel the deal I did offer is a good one.

      Let me know!

      Richard

      hello.

      I want everything in the 39 $ pledge (especially the iPad version). But, I leave outside the USA and don't need the paper version. Is this possible to create this type of option for peoples like me who want to be full digital ?

      Just like I am excited to see Steampunk Holmes come together, I'm really looking forward to seeing this! It's such a new form of art, I can't wait to be immersed in the story. Best of luck!

      Hi Jörn,

      First I want to thank you for supporting Steampunk Holmes earlier in year and now Steam Patriots! It's folks like you that help us create a great product.

      Your question is a good one. Why do we need so much more for this project than we did for Steampunk Holmes? For the first project, Steampunk Holmes, most of the money came out of our own pockets. We didn't do a kickstarter campaign until we had spent our saving and couldn't afford to finish the product. In that case the kickstarter campaign helped us over the last financial hump but the bulk of the expenses were paid for before that campaign launched.

      Steam Patriots is different. We wanted to create new series with the same quality of Steampunk Holmes, but there was no way we could afford to do that without help. We simply don't have the funds to support a second series and we didn't want to take any money away from Steampunk Holmes. So, having seen the possibilities with the Steampunk Holmes campaign, we decided to turn to you, the audience, for help.

      I hope that answers your question. If not please feel free to post another comment. It's important that we are as transparent as glass about our motives and methods.

      All the best!

      Richard

      I was wondering why this Kickstarter campaign aims so much higher than the Holmes campaign.
