Hello ladies and gents! I have checked the polls, and it is true! It has been VERY boring for our backers the past week or so since the end of the campaign. Rest assured, it's far from boring on my side! In fact, it's so NOT boring that it's very stressful!
Those T-Shirts and Hoodies
Aside from the BF4 and COD breaks, I've been doing my best to collect all of the shipping data and correct any payment mistakes for the physical rewards. For T-Shirts and Hoodies, I've settled on one fulfillment company in the Bay Area (locally to me) to create the shirts! However, before I place an order, I'll be ordering one shirt for quality purposes. If it's good, then I'll pull the trigger. Since they're so close by, I may end up picking up the orders myself and shipping them out. If this happens, I'll be able to include a signed mini poster in each T-Shirt and Hoodie order!
If you're ordering a T-Shirt or Hoodie and you still haven't sent in your survey, Please do so ASAP! The deadline is the 26th, and we DO want to send you your goods! If you've sent in a survey before ordering a T-Shirt or Hoodie, make sure to message me ASAP as well.
For all of the paperwork and legal matters, I've spent the past week and a half working with close friends and family professionals to create contracts for everyone in the development team. This isn't that I don't trust them, it's for security purposes for both parties. We want to make this game a reality, and having an agreement undocumented can be lethal for the whole project! I've also talked it over with a family tax professional, and he's given us the green light on the development team.
There's quite a lot to do still of course! As you all know, governments love taxing us. This is true for Kickstarters, where the amount we receive is subject to Income Tax in the US. Naturally, we want to keep as much of it as possible to go towards development of the game, not in uncle sams pocket. I'll be working closely with my parents (pros at this I tell ya!) to get as much of the funds tax-exempt as possible. I also still need to apply for a sellers permit, which will allow us to send out the T-Shirts, and in the future, the physical game boxes.
Physical Game Pack
I've been looking around for the best place to fulfill the physical game boxes, CDs and manuals. Originally it would be a simple DVD box with a custom sleeve and a 4-page manual inside. However! After some more research, I've found an equally priced software package service that'll allow us to provide you with a more customized Game Box, identical to the ones you see in your local game store. It'll be AWESOME!
If you were in the $15 tier, you may have noticed the last two questions looked eerily similar. This is because it was a complete accident, and I pasted the "PayPal" portion inside of the identical paragraph instead of overwriting it. Not big of a deal, just unprofessional of my. Sorry!
Also, if you are not receiving a Physical reward, you are not required to fill in the shipping address. Put in a fake one, maybe google's home address or something. If you've already sent it in, rest assured that it will not be viewed by anyone other than me or Kickstarter, who house the surveys online for us.
Naturally we still love promoting other Kickstarters.
"Elliot Quest is an adventure/RPG inspired by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, one of my favorite games. In Elliot Quest, players explore the mysterious Urele Island in search of an ancient demon, navigating through 8 dungeons, defeating over 16 bosses, and discovering countless treasures."
"It's Diablo meets Pipe Mania! An Action Puzzle Crawl in which you change the dungeon layout on the fly using rotating tunnel sections.
Dwarven Delve sits somewhere between an action dungeon crawl and a light puzzle game. That’s why we’re calling it an action puzzle crawl. The players control the moment-to-moment actions of the party while also managing the level layout and a variety of combo abilities and dungeon features for satisfying monster destruction and loot acquisition."
