Hello dearest backers!

Guess what? Are you guessing yet? ...You sure? Ok, here it is: 

WE OFFICIALLY HAVE A BREWERY! In case you have no idea what I am talking about and fear that Cara and I have now turned to the business of brewing beer...let me explain: 

The first "realm" of our Steampunk world takes place inside a pirate airship. Typically, these Steampunk airships are characterized for being extremely industrial-looking and, of course, filled with steam!  Having said so, a brewery fits the bill perfectly because it has the industrial aesthetic we are looking for. 

We are eternally thankful to Thirsty Planet Brewery for allowing us to film in their premises in September and for being so supportive of Checkmate.

We have many, many things in the works and we will keep you updated on all of them. In the meantime, have we mentioned how much we appreciate your support? Yes? Ok; well I thought I'd say it again anyhow. 

Have a wonderful week!

-Andrea and Cara.
