Boss Monster hits its goal in one day!
Yesterday morning, we launched Boss Monster into the world with a lot of trepidation and our fingers firmly crossed. We knew we had a great game, but we'd also seen enough Kickstarter projects to know that $12,000 was not an easy goal to hit.
Today, a little over 24 hours after we launched the product, we have achieved our goal. This is crazy, guys! The support of the Kickstarter community has been astounding. Some of the pledges here are from friends and family members, but the vast majority are from total strangers and Kickstarter browsers. To anyone who just happened upon Boss Monster and decided to give it a try, thank you! To those of you at Nintendorks, Rantgaming, Comicbuzz, and everyone who posted on Facebook to tell their friends, thank you!
Of course, we have 30 days left to go, which means this is just the beginning. Over the next few days, you can expect to see:
- Another way for supporters to get limited edition So Analog! Mini 10-Doh Figures. A lot of people love these, but they were tied into our very limited Hero and Epic Hero levels. Squid Kids Ink will make more of the gray cartridge versions available, but they will only be available as part of this Kickstarter. After this campaign, the limited edition Boss Monster figures will never be sold again.
- More pledge levels. We can't promise that anything will be as awesome a value as the Hero and Epic Hero levels -- we priced those low to be an "early bird special" -- but we'll provide more ways for people to get great rewards for pledging. at higher levels.
- Stretch goals and stretch rewards. The higher our numbers go, the more goodness we can unlock. From additional exclusive cards to improvements and extras, we will focus on making the game the best it can be.
Stay tuned over the weekend for all the details, and for even more updates. A lot of people have requested a gameplay video, and we'll be posting one on our YouTube channel as soon as editing is complete. For those of you who are in the Los Angeles/Pasadena area, we will be doing live game demos this Saturday from 2-5 pm at the amazing Game Empire Pasadena. If you can make it, visit their Facebook page and sign up!
Also, please sign up for the official Boss Monster Facebook page! We are trying to avoid spamming the backer updates here at Kickstarter, so the Facebook page is your best source for the latest news and discussion.
Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts. Now let's see how big we can make this!
