MAY UPDATE: our first month... WHAT A F**KIN' JOURNEY!
Hi, our dear backers!
Yeah, we know... not exactly May! But we're here nonetheless!
So a month have passed since release. And what a journey! Monster Prom has turned out to be a friggin' success. We're so so amazed, in the best of ways. So let's talk about it a bit
1. MONSTER PROM's FIRST MONTH
We're on our 2nd month already and it seems as if we could maybe hit the 100,000 units sold mark! Not yet there (but getting closer).
Also we've been covered by a f*ckton of media. Kotaky, Polygon, Buzzfeed, SyFy... crazy amazing. And tons of youtubers and twitchers, with already a video over 1,000,000 views and quite a bit with more than 100,000. People love to play Monster Prom and people love to watch other people playing Monster Prom!
And the fandom... what a wonderful fandom! It's soooooo crazy: fanart, fanfics, cosplay, memes, comics, NSFW stuff, animatics. We're in utter love with you all lovely fans.
Like... check THIS VIDEO with tons of cosplayers.
Or maybe THIS OTHER VIDEO, which is a kick-ass animatic.
Really... thanks to all of you.
2. WHAT WE'VE DONE
Also, during this month we have done some stuff, like the Bae Ballot contest, that ended up with Damien getting a new secret ending, that will be included soon! We have also done some minor updates here and there. Today we added lots of more voice effects, including the voices of two chars that had no voice till now!
We've been working on tiny updates to fix and improve stuff. Today we added voices for 2 chars that had no voice till now! And we added lots of voice effects for the events that happen during the first turns! We want to do that with all events, but it takes A LOT OF TIME. So... babysteps.
We also revealed Vicky's last name! Now you know she's Vicky Schmidt. You also knew Oz has no last name. So next last names to be revealed will be either Brian's or Amira's.
We're working on a bigger update that will be released soon! Maybe by the end of this month? Keep tuned!
3. WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Enjoying life. That's first. June is music festival month around here, and Barcelona is sunny and stupidly beautiful.
But we're also working on LOTS of things. Monster Prom has been a success, and so we need to milk that success and do our best to keep this awesome for all of you, lovely fans.
I will list what are we doing now, even if I can't be that specific, as stuff will be revealed when each thing comes closer to release. Also keep in mind nothing is 100% guaranteed until it is released (and plans might change):
- A bigger update with some content and maybe a new feature
- New funny and rewarding contests!
- A big new exciting feature
- New languages
- We're studying the possibility of porting to consoles
- Content for the upcoming DLC promised on Kickstarter
- Making online more stable. Sorry >___>
- Steam cards
- Official merch
- Other crazy stuff
You can be sure we're not resting on MonProm's success. We want to do our best into making the game and the franchise bigger and bigger!
4. YOUR REWARDS
We have sent the PREMIUM ZINE and the ART GOODIES. And we're preparing the rules to do your own customized messages. Spoiler alert: it won't be simple! Basically we will probably need you to prepare the customized messages using the rules we use to create events. We will give you a tool to check if you followed all the rules right or you need to make changes.
And thaaaat's all for now!
This is being beyond great. We're super grateful and we want to show it to you by adding more content and new features! We hope you enjoyed Monster Prom so far. We're doing our very best!
the Monster Prom team.
