Hello everyone!

We hope you had a great week this week! 

We are busy planning some new forums for everyone which is very exciting, and the surveys are also not too far behind. In the meantime feel free to start using our current forums to post up suggestions, questions, and even try to make your own guess as to how Unsung Story will play! 

Forums: http://unsungstory.com/wp/forum/ 

We will continue with these weekly updates so you know we are still thinking of all of you, and it won’t be long before we will be able to share lots of content with you about Unsung Story! Great things are on their way! 

Have a great weekend everyone and again, thank you for your support! 

Cheers, 

Playdek

Hello everyone!

This week we updated our website with new packages through Humble Bundle. These widgets will remain up for new supporters, and once we have finished our physical reward packages we will update the website with more widgets.

We have also seen a few of you ask about the Kickstarter survey and we have not sent it out just yet so do not worry, you haven’t missed it yet. When we are ready to send it will let you all know so it won’t take you by surprise.

Thank you all for your continued support, and very soon we will be able to share more information with you about Unsung Story. Have a great weekend!  

Cheers,  

Playdek


Update #27

Hello everyone!

First of all we want to let you all know that we are working on a way to keep everyone up to date on the total amount donated so everyone can see how close we are to the specified Stretch Goals. However I wanted to give everyone an update on where the total is currently. 

Right now we have received a total of $666,610.49 (through Kickstarter and PayPal) meaning we are less than $85k away from New Game + and Co-Operative Play (2v2 and 2vAI)! We are also extending the Kickstarter packages we have available on our site through to run through the weekend so if you haven’t checked them out yet now is your chance! 

This is also your last chance to receive the Kickstarter Exclusive Game Package ($5USD) that comes with three additional EXCLUSIVE stages and a personalized tabard and crest for your character, so if this is something you might be interested in make sure to take this purchase into consideration now before you no longer are able to. 

PayPal Donations: http://unsungstory.com/wp/donate/ 

While things have been a tad quiet following the success of our Kickstarter campaign, we are preparing to ramp up production on Unsung Story very soon. When this happens we will have more art, story, and game play to share with everyone. We are also working on setting up our special forums so those of you with special forum access (Alpha, Beta, Design, and Art Forums) will start to be invited to make your accounts. Our Kickstarter survey is in the works and we should be sending that out over the next few months so be prepared to see that soon! Thank you all so much for your continued support and we can’t wait to start sharing more information about Unsung Story with you and everyone else! 

Cheers,

Playdek


Update #26

Hello everyone!

In the days following the Kickstarter campaign we have been looking at our Stretch Goals to see if there is a way we can move things around in order to improve the look, feel, and game play for Unsung Story. In reevaluating our goals, we have been able to talk with Alexander O. Smith and Joseph Reeder about their involvement with the project.

After talking things over with them we have been able to work out a way to bring them onto the team, so it is official! Alexander O. Smith and Joseph Reeder are joining the Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians team!

Because of this news, we have been able to revise the Stretch Goals! We moved some things up and even combined a few so check them out:

  • $750,000 – New Game + and Co-Operative Play (2v2 and 2vAI)
  • $1,000,000 – PS Vita and Arena Mode
  • $1,250,000 – PS4 and Map Creator
  • $1,500,000 – Nintendo 3DS and Challenge Mode
  • $1,600,000 – Voice-overs for Unsung Story
  • $1,700,000 – Full Orchestra Recording, Bonus Music Tracks, and Live Concert by Hitoshi Sakimoto

Also we will be hosting an AMA with the game designers working on the Unsung Story card game later today, and they will be able to answer questions on how the game will play, what mechanics you will find in the game, what inspired them while creating the game, and even questions about themselves and how they got into Game Design!

You can join us on the Unsung Story Reddit here and post up your questions now: http://www.reddit.com/r/theunsungstory/comments/1z44v4/ama_with_race_and_phil_playdeks_senior_game/

And as a reminder, our PayPal packages will only be available on our website until next Friday, March 7, 2014, so if you haven’t you may want to look at the different add-ons since there is a chance not all of these add-ons will be available after this deal ends!

PayPal Donations: http://unsungstory.com/wp/donate/

Thank you again for all of your support, and we hope to see you later at the Reddit AMA!

Cheers,

Playdek
