Earlier this month I wrote:
"My personal goal is to launch the survey before May 1, 2015."
Unfortunately, that won't happen. Jen and Rhea have worked at the survey, but the usual hurdles and obstacles of business -- distractions caused by more pressing concerns, technical headaches, my failing to turn around feedback quickly -- mean that we will not even have the survey ready to share with Steve until next week.
So, I must say to all of you: I am sorry. I shouldn't have even hinted at the expansion survey until it was completed and ready to launch. I was confident that we could post the survey before May 1, but I'm again reminded why it is best not to talk in specifics until a task, no matter how small, is actually finished.
I'll try to remember this lesson the next time I start to speak too soon about a work in progress. I hope you all can forgive my failure here. As soon as the survey is completely finished and launched, we will post another update here with a link, and then you can tell us what you want out of the upcoming Ogre expansion.
Something I can safely say is that the Car Wars Arenas Kickstarter project is closing in a couple of hours. The $105,000 stretch goal has been unlocked and the value of the bonus PDFs for backers at $39 and higher exceeds the international shipping costs; hopefully, that will soften the blow for them a little bit. Wish us luck in these final hours, gang. We appreciate all of your encouragement and support with this and all of our projects.
