Surveys out, proofs in, who wants two?
Surveys for all backers receiving games (with the exception of Kiwi retailers) went out yesterday; thanks to the more than 473 of you who have already responded. I thought it was about time to start collecting your address details, since this week we approved the digital proof and white copies for Hoard, meaning Whatz has the green light to begin production. It was Tim who received and approved the proofs and he's sent through some photos. Since I've already used the coolest adjective ever in the last update, I'll let the images speak for themselves:
Now that you know about the stretch goals we hit and have a better idea of the quality of Hoard's artwork, perhaps some of you are wishing you made a Double Dragon pledge to get two copies of Hoard. It is possible for the next few weeks for backers to order a second copy at Kickstarter discounted prices. Send an email with your name to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will invoice you via PayPal. This is how much you'd need to pay (in NZ dollars) to add a second copy, according to your location:
- New Zealand: $25
- Japan or South Korea: $29
- Australia: $30
- North America: $32
- European Union: $36 (caveat emptor: the value of two games could trigger VAT)
- Rest of the world: $35 (but if in doubt, provide your country, it could be less)
If you made a pledge that didn't include a game, you also have a chance to preorder one or two at the Kickstarter price. Just send an email with your details to email@example.com and we'll work it out.
Non-backers also have an opportunity to preorder copies from the Kickstarted batch by visiting www.hoard.nz and clicking the green button (which takes a second to appear.)
Long ago, while the Hoard campaign was still running, a review copy was sent to Mandi and her team at To Die For Games. It ultimately emerged from an unexplained postal pause and this latest video review followed pretty swiftly thereafter. Thanks for keeping the faith, Mandi! Hoard has now been reviewed in at least six different countries (NZ, Australia, the US, the UK, Italy and now Canada.)
