OCTOBER UPDATE: monstersonas, merch, contests, and more!
Hi, our dear backers!
Now that we feel such more free on the structure of updates, we can make them faster... like 3 days after the last one?!
No, but really, we have stuff to announce!
The custom messages are happening! You received a private message with instructions on how to ask for yours (if you pledged at the 30€ tier or higher). Just to be clear: if you don't do it in time, we won't be able of delivering you your custom message!
Also... we've done the monstersonas!
From 17 people eligible for it, we received 11 requests that have been completed. 6 people are still missing! Are you one of them? Please contact us! As with any reward, there is an expiracy date. I say this because with another KS projects I've received requests for rewards over a year later from when the reward was handled to the backers. This might seem trivial, but most of the times you don't have the logistics you had in place at the right moment.
As for the monstersonas... do you like them? They have been done by our super new 2nd artist, Viper! Also, today (Oct 22th in our timezone) is his b-day. Happy birthday, Viper!
Monstersonas will be added to the gallery, including info of the monstersona and (if chosen to) of the creator. And who knows? It would be cool maybe to create a system at some point to let a monstersona make a cameo on MonProm itself!
You might be thinking "Oh, dang! That's cool, I wish I had pledged for a monstersona of my own..."
Worry no more! We're preparing ways for people to be rewarded with official monstersona commissions (it will be a pretty exclusive thing, as some people has paid quite a bit to get theirs).
The first way is by being one of the 3 winners of the For Fans by Fans Monster Prom Challenge! You can submit your designs till November 29th to participate. The 3 winners will be eligible to get their own custom monstersonas and even a custom polaroid of their monstersona with a character of their desire!
And this week we will be revealing our first line of official merch. We can now reveal we're working with no other than The Yetee. It will be ready during this upcoming week or next one tops.
But I can tell you one thing: the stuff is looking ridiculously awesome. So start saving money for some kick-ass MonProm swag.
Also... have you seen the Halloween teaser?
Let me tell you, we've preparing some unexpected stuff for Halloween. For starters, of course, Halloween costumes. We've revealed Vera dressing like the *cough* *cough* "shopkeeper". And then the Coven dressing like Miri, Vera and Polly. This means this time it won't be the 6 dateable characters getting a new temporary outfit... but 15 characters! (ok, we're counting the Coven as 3 different ones).
Then, we're adding a new item with its own secret ending. And, ofc, we're celebrating Halloween by releasing our first line of merch. But there is... something else. It's a silly thing that it yet is quite unexpected and nice! A silly idea that evolved into something... dare I say, beautiful? Or terrible... who knows?
The idea would be for them to present monthly art challenges! We will propose a theme (Genderswap, Monsterswap, Fusions, etc.) for people to participate by tagging us. We will upload during the month illustrations by Viper. By the end of the month we will post our fav ones and we will select a winner, who will get their own custom monstersona too!
Aaaaand that's all!
As always, thanks for your support!
