Thank you everyone for the comments. I'll posting details next week.
Hi Matt, I think it is very important to show the costs so that backers understand break even and begin to understand the value of all of the stretch goals. That they are not loads of extra cash but really a break even gift back to them.
It also is a good chance to show what the upfront costs would be do develop a book with quality maps and graphics, and why platforms like Kickstarter really do enable many more projects to see the light of day.
Totally in favor of showing the financials, all game related KSs should. I'm sure I'd help lots of game developers avoid mistakes.
also in favor of this!
I'm putting my girls to bed, and I realized this might sound alarming. It's not! I have already paid for all of the art, editing, layout, extra writing, maps, and whatnot. The book is going to be amazing, so please don't worry about that!!!
Yeah, I've always had an interest in the behind the scenes of RPG Kickstarters so I would be interested in seeing how that works out.
All posts regarding financials will be completely public. Otherwise it kind of defeats the purpose.
updated the post already due to prompt feedback here and on the Twitters.
As someone who is still waiting for some kickstarters years after their 'deliver by' dates, I think it's of paramount importance for you, as a creator, to be as transparent as possible. So yes. Please post Financials as they relate to this product/campaign, and I dare say do it publicly and not backer-only. But I won't hold you to that as long as you're honest to us, your backers.
I'me about to dabble in publishing adventures, so I would be grateful if you shared your numbers.
It'll be my next update. Probably early next week. Feel free to reach out anytime btw.
Same as Aaron. I'm working on something myself and am curious.
I'm curious, so yeah, I'd like to see it.
