You've done it again! The ROMANCE PRINT is UNLOCKED!

Posted by Alex Woolfson (Creator)

Holy cow! We've just leapt over $35,000 which means that not only will there be a seventh trading card (that happened very late last night at $32,500) but it also means that you've unlocked our first 11" x 14" ROMANCE PRINT! WOO HOO!

That means that in addition to a gorgeous full-color physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards of Kyle, The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Flyboy and The Platinum Priestess (and two more as well!), backers at the EXPERIENCED VIGILANTE level or higher will now be able to get a brand-new, full color 11" x 14" ROMANCE PRINT featuring the two characters you all will vote on—kissing and stuff—as one of their print options! And all backers will receive the art as high-res digital wallpaper the moment we finish it! YAY!

And that's in addition to the ACTION PRINT featuring Kyle that's already been unlocked! WOO HOO TO THE POWER OF 2!

(Oh, and I'm still getting questions about this so let me answer again: if you are a backer, yes, you can choose to increase your pledge at any time until the project ends. So if you decide you'd like one of these physical prints, so long as the project is still running, it's very easy to make that happen!)

Voting for the sixth trading card is still ongoing and won't finish until 4:30 PM PST, so I won't be able to send out the voting link for the unlocked seventh card until that finishes. But there's no reason to wait to send out the 24-hour voting link for this SAFE-FOR-WORK ROMANCE PRINT! And in a couple minutes I'll send out a BACKERS-ONLY update that does just that!

This is a vote that's I'm super eager to find out who you'll choose. Will you go for the traditional route and just want to see the main characters—Kyle and The Annihilator—together? Or will you buck tradition and come up with a pairing I'll never expect? I'm really excited to find out!

And then what's next? Well, a little after 4:30 PM, I'll announce who won the vote for the sixth trading card and will then send out the voting link for the seventh.

And after that? Well, we're now at $35,368 and the next stretch goal gets unlocked at $37,500. If we hit that target, that means that this Kickstarter campaign's backing has officially surpassed what my last, very successful campaign for Artifice did. And that means it's time to PARTY!

The $37,500 stretch goal unlocks TWO more trading cards to be sent to you (the 8th and 9th!) and even cooler it will mean that ALL backers will receive a KICKSTARTER-EXCLUSIVE PDF VERSION of The Annihilator Dossier when that's complete! WOOT!

Will we hit that next stretch goal? Fingers crossed! But for now, it's time to start voting on your awesome ROMANCE PRINT!

Thank you so, so much for your amazing backing and all-around awesomeness! You all ROCK! :D

      I was predictable and voted for Kyle/Duncan in the end, but I was sorely tempted by the idea of putting Commander and the Platinum Priestess together. :-)
