MERRY CHRISTMAS. SANTA ISN'T REAL.
And happy holidays to all of you. New Year's coming soon, and unless you're like me, you probably have friends and family to spend it with. Please drink responsibly. By that I mean don't spill your glass, you foetus.
Here's the promised update. By the way, you might want to read point 4 & 5.
Limpeh Says v1.2
1. Losing your Kickstarter virginity
According to our Backers' Report, over half of our backers are new to Kickstarter and it must be a very scary experience for them, and many are asking about delivery addresses. We will send out a survey to everyone when the campaign ends for all your personal details.
A few of you are worried that we may take your money and run. While that is entirely possible, we are not going to do it because of two very simple reasons:
- It is 1000x more money than I have in my bank account, I have no idea what to do with it other than buying a lifetime's supply of chicken rice.
- We don't want to go to jail
2. Production & Delivery Timeline
We mentioned that we would try our best to get it out in time for Chinese New Year so you can have an awkward time playing it with your family members.
Unfortunately, production on the printer's side will be delayed by a short while due to Chinese New Year (printing company will close for 3 weeks), therefore we will not be in time to get it out by then. So, joke's on all of us I guess..
But with that being said, we're still on track for March release, like mentioned in the campaign.
3. The Special 1-Set for you snowflakes
Once we get a final quotation from our printer, we will start messaging all 38 of you (currently) and proceed with step-by-step layman instructions on how to create your own shitty cards. Until now, just hang on tight, and don't die.
4. NO MORE STRETCH GOALS
We spent an hour discussing how we're going to settle this, because Limpeh Says isn't a 'product' where we can add different coloured tiers, or extra functionality to it. Having tiered stretch goals isn't really what we want to do as well, because there's only so many ways we can add-value to our already awesome product.
So here's the plan. We're going to unlock all "stretch goals" at once, and it will be included for backers past, present, and future until the campaign ends. By tomorrow, the campaign should be updated with extra text and visuals regarding these changes:
- + 5 Red Cards
- + 5 White Cards
- + Better card quality
- + Better box quality
- + Kickstarter Special Expansion Pack "Limpeh Says: CNY Ang Paos"
- + 1 Super Special Kickstarter Backer's card ;-)
5. Kickstarter Special Expansion Pack
"Limpeh Says: CNY Ang Paos"
Like it's name suggests, it will be packaged in an Ang Pao and will be exclusive to our Kickstarter Backers only. It will contain 10 Red Cards, and 10 White Cards.
5 of each will be community-suggested and voted cards. Of course, rules and regulations has to apply because we're in Singapore. But we will scan through for any 'illegal' suggestions, and from there on it's strictly on a voting basis. So if you want to see 'Harambe' in the set, you know what to do.
But what about the remaining 5 Red and White cards?
Here's where it gets interesting.
We're hoping to invite local personalities/celebrities to create their own custom cards to be released in the expansion pack. Such people should be very involved in the local culture, or are in one way or another doing work that revolves around it. We have yet to contact all of them, but here are our five names:
- Samantha Lo A.K.A The Sticker Lady
- Chua En Lai from The Noose
- Lee Kin Mun A.K.A Mr Brown
The question marks! What do they mean?!
Well, we're letting YOU suggest who you want to see contribute to YOUR exclusive expansion pack. Wah, exciting right? So just comment on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Kickstarter page name(s) of people you'd like to see in the ang pao cards.
And that's it
We will do weekly updates every Tuesday on our progress, and in the mean time, feel free to comment or message us should you have any queries.
