Final Day! Final Hours! IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!
Oh my dear Agents!
What a time we've had. I think you know by now how I feel about you all, but let me just say it one more time....I love you!! You've changed my life. You've changed Danny's life. It's truly been outstanding, astonishing and unbelievable - I could never have dreamed that this idea for a game that popped into my head many months ago could grasp the imagination of so many people and become...this!
As we make our way into the final hours of the campaign, I want to thank you all, and most especially the group of incredible active, committed commenters who lived through every day of this campaign with me on the comments page, bringing a level of humor, kookiness, creativity and soul to this project that I simply couldn't have imagined. You know who you are! Thanks once more to all of my 6,490 backers from the bottom of my heart.
*wipes away a tear, clears throat and pulls self back together*
So now it's time to wrap up a few last pieces of business. The first of which is that yesterday we hit our penultimate stretch goal!!
This is one that I know that even in the short time that it existed, many of you were excited to reach, not least of whom was Agent Dark Mechanic! In fact, Danny was so keen to deliver this particular boost to the game, that he's already gone ahead and done a couple of rough sketches for a couple of the new KS exclusive Safe-house illustrations!
Partners in Crime
While we're on the subject of Danny, I want to showcase another group of Agents fresh off the coloring block. Take a look at these new, final illustrations for The Partners!
Thinking outside the Box
I know many of you have already opted in for one or more of the add-ons available, but I thought I'd do the quickest of round-ups so that everyone knows what is on offer to bling up your package of The Agents.
Ship Ship Hooray
This campaign has taken us all by surprise and a few of you are wondering what the chances are of receiving the game before the Holidays. I sat once more with the printers today and locked down a really tight schedule for production, receipt and dispatch. According to our calculations, all the games (including expansions + add-ons) should be sent out by the end of November, so we'll be able to get everything to you comfortably by Christmas (though Chanukah falls crazy early this year)!! If this means you want to add on an extra set or two, far be it from me to stop you!
The story continues...
Even though we're coming to the end of the road for this campaign, I can tell you that this certainly is not the last you've heard from The Agents. I have a bunch of ideas for more expansions (already in the works) that bring exciting, new dimensions to the game. And I know that many of you have sent me some wonderful ideas for mechanics, *graphic novels* and alternative game-play rules as well. And Danny's imagination only gets more rich, vivid and absorbing with each day that passes, so we hope to work together on expanding the world of The Agents, in another campaign very soon!
And that's it! Final update before we ride out the last 8 hours together! I'll be over on the comments section with you through to the end, and I'd love all of you to join the celebration with us there!
With all my thanks for everything,
