Boss Monster hits its goal in one day!

Posted by Brotherwise Games (Creator)

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!

      It seems that they are doing some in depth deets on their blog as well ( so you can score some extra info there as well. But I too agree with the others, when I see a kickstarter campaign that's nearing it's end, the first thing I do is check the number of updates and how regularly the project leader comments on the KS board. It shows serious merit to keep that involved. But that's just me.

      every one*

      I wish there was an edit button, hehehe.

      Agreed with Brian, it is in your best interest to post updates here. Not everyone is on Facebook, posting updates here is the only true way to reach everyone of your backers.

      I've 'liked' your Facebook page as well, but I have to say, don't be afraid to post regular updates here on the KS page. More interaction is good, and now that Facebook is pushing their 'Promote this post' nonsense, this is the best way to make sure every backer actually SEES your posts.

      Congrats on hitting the goal, guys.

      If you are planning to make more of the Mini 10-Doh Figures, is there a way you can differentiate them? As increasing the number of gray ones will lower the "worth" of the ones the $50 ones have. As people were led to believe they were at a limited stock.
      Like maybe a different artwork for the slightly mass produced one? This way people at the $50+ levels could also add a second doh boy to their pledges?

      I just randomly stumbled on this and thought it was pretty cool. I was lucky enough to snag a Hero level. Between the time I saw this and managed to hit pledge, the fighter level sold out but I managed to get a cleric. Guess I have to heal instead of hurt! lol. Good luck guys and glad to see this doing so well! Isn't KS great for bringing random people with similar interests together on interesting projects?

      I wanted to ask if there are going to be "multiple of X Pledge" pledges. In particular, "THE EXTRA LIFE" pledge. I know for example my younger brother would like everything from that pledge (The Extra Cards, the Credit by Name, Playtester Access, etc.) but he lacks a Credit Card. Also, will the box be big enough to hold all the cards with sleeves? And even with future expansions in mind?

      Awesome! They's the limit now

      Well deserved early funding. Looking forward to the progression of this campaign.
