Letting you in on a secret...

Posted by J. Daniel Sawyer (Creator)

Well, it looks like we need to have a conversation. Because you, yes YOU, have astoundingly, astonishingly, adroitly pushed Crudrat over 70% less than a week into the campaign!

I shouldn't tell you this, because it's a little embarrassing, but when we got the note this morning that we'd broken the $5000 mark, our cartoonist's hair stood straight up on end. Our media guy (lacking much in the hair department) got terribly British about it (his prerogative, as he is, in fact, British). And while this was going on, the producer (that's me) sat in stunned silence sipping at his iced tea with a slack-jawed expression. The theme from 2001 might have played briefly in the background. The thin slivers of light may have penetrated the dark curtains here presaging a bright, shattering revelation...

This means that thanks to all 114 of you, we're probably going to make it before the campaign is half over--and that means we will have time to offer stretch goals (and even achieve them)!

And oh, the fun we have planned! Some of them will expand the rewards you're already getting - bonus content for the print and ebooks, and bonus audio content, such as exclusive interviews and bloopers, full-cast audio productions of four of Gail's short stories, and, if we get to offer even more stretch goals, more stories and other events from the Crudrat universe. (And we're all really excited about that!)

We have a lot coming up for you in the next couple of days: a special essay from Alasdair later tonight about the great Crudrat-type heroines of Science Fiction (special content for everyone watching the campaign), and early next week, an exclusive documentary on the start of the casting process (that's just for backers - don't miss it!).
