Last night, we passed the $30,000 level, and our first Over-funding Goal. Immediately, everybody who backed us at a level which provides a copy of the game will also be receiving our SPECIAL EDITION metal-cast First Player Token. Given how often the first player position changes hands, and how important it can be, we wanted to give this item some heft. We are currently finalizing the art for this and should have something to show you before the end of funding.
In addition to that upgrade, we'll also be releasing a print & play version of our first Disaster Looms! minigame, Ricochet Rock Jockeys. RRJ is in the final stages of testing right now, and should be available to download, for free, for everybody, by the end of June.
Upon passing the $30,000 level, we have also unlocked the $55,000 over-fund goal: Early access to a Print & Play version of the next game set in the Disaster Looms! universe, Imminent Doom.
Now, we also had a couple of things that we really wanted to do, but we weren't prepared to promise until we had actually reached the goal: First, for our international friends and backers, we have dropped shipping rates outside the U.S. North American backers outside the U.S. will now only be paying $15 for shipping, and all other backers outside the U.S. will be paying $25.
Second, we have added the 5-6 player expansion to the A La Carte menu for $20. By reaching our first over-fund goal, we can immediately make a first print run of the expansion available to all of our backers at full retail price. This is the same expansion which we will be including for free with every copy of the game as soon as we hit the $40,000 level.
And finally, I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to your very own Personal Positronic Assistant, who will be helping you make your way through the Disaster Looms! manual - Edwin.
Thank you so much for all your support,
