Now a Kickstarter "Project We Love!"

 Adorable to Horrible is an adult party game for 2-4 players. It's a game that's easy to learn and play, so you can quickly get to the fun and debauchery! Choose one of the four "Adorables," do your best to keep them safe in their Happy Place cloud, while you push your opponents' characters down the stony steps, toward "The Nasty Void!"

We've invested a lot of time, money, and effort into Adorable to Horrible, and are determined to see this project come to life! It's taken nearly two years of design and game testing to get to the point we're at, and now we need your help to make this dream of ours come true! While we've already invested some of our own money to get the project started, we still have large costs--Finalized artwork, printing, and shipping being the bulk of the costs.  We are partnering with Panda Games Manufacturing for our printing. They have a great reputation (Viticulture, Pandemic, Dead of Winter, etc., etc.), and we've worked closely with them over the last 6 months doing everything we can to get costs as low as possible, while still maintaining the highest quality. We have written estimates for the game costs, as well as factored in any "hidden costs."Also, in the interest of keeping costs at a minimum, we've looked at and received quotes from no less than six different fulfillment companies, and have it narrowed down to two.

In addition to that, we've sent numerous prototypes off to game reviewers, (see above), we've got all our social media up and running, we've hosted events at local game spots (and enjoyed some great feedback there, too!), so we're on our way, but we're still not done. We need the funds from this Kickstarter to carry us into the world of game design and creation. Our ultimate goal is to see you playing Adorable to Horrible at your next party with all of your adorable friends!

Risks and challenges

While there are always potential risks, we are confidant that we've taken every precaution to make this project go smoothly. We've hired lawyers, accountants, and interviewed multiple fulfillment companies to ensure that our backers receive top-notch delivery for pledges. Our manufacturing partner, Panda Games Manufacturing, is an industry-proven game manufacturing powerhouse. They've helped with many Kickstarters, and they provided us with some wonderful guidance along the way. We will also be using BackerKit to help manage the the entire process, from surveys, all the way through fulfillment, with the sole purpose to ensure accuracy, and efficiency, and peace of mind, for both our backers and us.

Please understand that there are many relationships that need to be managed to get our product to the doors of our backers. Because of this, the timing of product delivery could be affected by unforeseen factors that may be out of our control. However, rest assured that we've made every effort to minimize these risks. But, in the event we hit a snag, or there are delays, etc., we will be prompt and transparent about what is happening, and if or how long the project will be delayed. We've been on the other side of the Kickstarter fence too, and it's always reassuring to hear back from the people you are backing, whether it's good news or not so good news!

We feel really good about where we are...our ducks are in a row, so to speak, and while we have to say there could be risks, we don't really foresee any. The game is fairly straightforward--not a lot of moving parts--so that should make the process even easier to manage.
