Over 900 Backers at over $20,000 with 17 Days to go!
We can’t thank you backers enough for so generously pledging to our Kickstarter campaign. Thank you to everyone who has shared and continues to share our project with their friends and family. It means a lot, and its getting us closer to reaching our stretch goals.
At 17 days to go, we still have a great opportunity to reach 2 stretch goals of $26,000 and $36,000.
Announcing the Stretch Goals!!! ________________________________________
Stretch Goal 1
$26,000 (MORE CONTENT)
We’ve been asked by a number of backers if we could add more content to the game as a stretch goal. The answer is Yes! If we reach a stretch goal of $26,000, we will add an additional area to "Lilly Looking Through" making the game just a bit longer.
Stretch Goal 2
$36,000 (Get a COPY of the game on iPad or Android Tablet)
If we reach a stretch goal of $36,000, we will bring “Lilly Looking Through” to iPad and Android Tablets. Also, if we reach the stretch goal of $36,000, backers who pledge $25 or MORE will receive one additional digital download copy of "Lilly Looking Through" for either iPad or Android Tablet.
We can’t believe that we reached $18,000 with over 20 days left in our Kickstarter campaign! We are jumping up and down and are completely stunned all at the same time. Thank you all SO much for your generous pledges, comments, and help spreading the word. We are really excited about the potential of reaching our $36,000 stretch goal now.Ladies and Gentlemen … we would like to introduce the NEW team members you just funded!

Based on some excellent feedback, we will be updating our rewards and adding some really exciting new tiers this week.
We've already added an additional $20 reward where you can choose two downloadable copies of the game (instead of one copy of the game and the soundtrack). So for those backers who would prefer this reward, you can change your selection under "Manage my pledge."
Stay tuned - more rewards are on the way!
