WE WANT TO START PRODUCTION RIGHT AWAY!
But we are waiting on absolutely one last sample: the bag to carry the cards in. After that: Sheepie all the way to the moon!!!
I gotta feeling that Sheepie's gonna be a good Sheep
That Sheepie's gonna be a good Sheep
That Sheepie's gonna be a good, good Sheep
Not as good as night, but a couple of those were gems.
Oops, I did it again
I played with your sheepie, got lost in the game
Oh baby, baby
Oops, you think I'm in love
That I'm sent from above
I'm not that innocent
I'll keep you my dirty little sheepie
(Dirty little sheepie)
Don't tell anyone, or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little sheepie
I don't mind spending every day
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the box with the sheepie smile
Bring it in so we can play awhile
And sheepie be loved
And sheepie be loved
There once was a Sheep named Sheepie, destined to be a Sheep
His parents were killed by Goatermort, who gave him a lightning scar
Yo Sheepie, you're a wizard!
Sheepie goes to Hogwarts, he meets Ron and Hermione!
McGonagall requires he play for Gryffindor
Draco is a daddy's boy, Quirrell becomes unemployed
The Sorcerer's stone is destroyed by Dumbledore
And I said,
"Sheepie, take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting, all that's left to do is run
You'll be the sheep and I'll be the shepard
It's a love story, baby just say bahhhhhhhhhh
So, so what?
I'm still a sheepie
I got my sheep moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm having more fun
And now that we're done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright, I'm just fine
And you're a tool
So, so what?
I am a sheepie
I got my sheep moves
And I don't want you tonight
I don't like your sheepie
No way, no way
I think you need a new one
I could be your sheepie
I know that you like me
No way, no way
No, it's not a secret
I want to be your sheepie
♫ And God made sheepie (For singing in your front seat)
♫ God made sheepie (For dancin' to their own beat)
♫ He stood back and told the boys I'm bout to rock your world
♫ And God made sheepie.
♫ What a sheep wants, what a sheep needs,
♫ Whatever makes my sheepie come home to me
♫ What a sheepie wants, what a sheepie needs,
♫ Whatever puts you at my door.
♫ And I'm thanking you for bringing sheepie to me.
@Creators Night's song you asked about is about a slinky from a movie. Just put slinky in for sheepie. The clip is hilarious.
*Everyone loves a Slinky!
*You've gotta get a Slinky!
*Go, Slinky! Go!
@Creators Based on the update it sounds like you are ready to start production. Any chance you have a timeline in your hands? I don't really care if it changes, just wondering what's up timeline wise. #ChurchForever
Haha. Thank you so much. We love these songs that you write. We can imagine all the Sheepies living for today, too!
(All of us on the team knew this song right away too!)
That isn't a jab at the lateness, by the way... I'm still 100% patient and excited for Sheepies... those lyrics just fit, and made me chuckle... lol :)
♫Imagine bread unleavened
No yeast to make it rise
No cake to show us
So hungry I could cry
Imagine all the Sheepies... living for today♫
Yup! We just got the sample from our manufacturer! The box looks really nice. (The magnets sound super satisfying when you open and close it)
We're taking pictures and writing the update tonight. Look forward to it soon!
Last day of October... Here comes an update!
Our factory says they are scheduled to send us the full samples the last week of October, so expect an update around early November!
Any updates? Last one was 8/1.
Soon(tm)! The cake is close!
Let's get some cake.
It's "Mandy" by Barry Manilow :)
Oh hey! What a great use of consonance on this verse! (What is song by the way?)
You came and you gave me some cake-y!
But I don't know how well you bake-y!
And you fought me and kept me from aching!
And I need all your cake, now Sheepie!
Lol... He sure is!
oh, oh! I know that one! Sheepie is such a charmer :D
♫Hey Sheepie you're so fine,
You're so fine you blow my mind!
Hey Sheepie! Hey Sheepie!♫
Incidentally, I just noticed that "go sheepie go" is the name of our internal chatroom here at sizigi.
Ohh no, I don't get this reference! What song is this?
*Everyone loves a Sheepie!
*You've gotta get a Sheepie!
*Go, Sheepie! Go!
P.S. If you don't get it, you're probably too young ;)
I'm normally faster with these: Sorry! we've been working ourselves to the bone at Gen Con 17 (can you say 14 hours of non-stop smiling for 4 days?). I see that things have gotten a bit messy while I was gone ;)
Hello Curtis. We’re sorry that you are leaving the campaign. We will refund you your 1 dollar.
As I've said in that reply, and every reply: I am aware that our backers would like a full art PnP. I did not give it because I use these square sheep with my own terrible inkjet printer, and they look great to me. I might do the full art pnp after things settle down, since people have been asking.
Currently, we're working at max capacity to get real Sheepies made. I respect and value the time and money that our backers have put in us, and I'm doing my best every day to make sure that Cake Duel will be the best damn 20 dollars they've ever spent. The PnP is on my mind, just not at the top of the list at the moment.
As for everyone else: Thanks for being patient with us. Sorry for the delays. Let’s continue the grand Sheepie adventure together! :D
@Roy P - This is their response:
"Honestly, we weren't planning to give the full art version pnp when we started the campaign.
For now, we're putting all our efforts to getting the real game out for manufacturing. Since there's been a lot of interest, we might do a full art pnp once things wind down."
It is also fully possible they are just waiting until the games ship to send out the full print and play?
@Curtis - I totally must agree with your very valid points. Seems like all of the disappointment comes from a lack of descriptive information, and I agree that you were not being unreasonable to assume an actual card art PnP. Until your comment, that is what I had assumed as well. The only thing I was trying to point out is that, on second look only, I didn't see any specifics listed, meaning they did technically have room to put forth what they did. But, if I were in your shoes, I wouldn't actually be happy about it either, so I'm actually very understanding of your disappointment. :(
@Night1505 - My point was, is that although they don't say "full art", they say "THE print-and-play version of Cake Duel". That's kind of what I was complaining about; they don't specify the level of quality of this PnP version is, but I assumed it would have at least been complete (I would have even been happy with a low quality, low res version, but they only have squares instead of sheep? wtf?). Maybe this is also an assumption, but I figure most people would also assume the same as me if given the lack of detail. I shouldn't have to message all creators separately just to understand their rewards.
To use your logic, I didn't see anywhere that the PnP was to be a "prototype" or otherwise "Incomplete" version either, nor did they say it was going to be "low quality" or "low res". Do you think we should have to ask them whether their physical copies would have full art because we can't assume they would ship a complete version? Would you be happy if your copy came printed with the art in the PnP just because they didn't technically say it would have the full art?
Anyone is free to disagree, but I personally believe it is reasonable to assume that any reward offered should be a complete version of whatever product they are offering unless otherwise specified, which they hadn't. I'm just posting my 2 cents in so that my voice can be heard, and to see if I'm the only one who feels this way.
@Curtis Chow - I've had a look at the Print-N-Play, and can definitely see what you mean. However, I can't actually find anywhere where a "full-art" or "final-art" PnP was promised. I'm certainly not trying to argue, but I can't help but think you may have assumed it was going to be a PnP with final art assets and card backs. I can't find anywhere where they said it was going to be "full art", "final art", or even anywhere where they use the words "high quality" or "high res". All I can find anywhere is text promising a PDF Print-N-Play of all the cards, which I believe they have delivered.
♫ Sheepie you, Sheepie me ♫
♫ Sheepie for always, that's the way it should be. ♫
♫ Sheepie you, Sheepie me ♫
♫ Sheepie together, naturally! ♫
If you never intended to release a full PnP version, you should have been upfront about the quality of the print and play version in the campaign. Like Adrian and I, any people who back at a print and play level for most Kickstarter games expect to receive a print and play of the actual game, not a prototype version.
Half the fun and the reason I backed was because of the art and would have happily pledged $5+ for a full art PnP. However considering there are no backs, and I could basically just draw these cards onto some playing cards, there was really no point in pledging even at the $1 level. As you mentioned previously, these are clearly used for prototyping, and as someone who regularly prints games to play, I would be embarrassed to introduce this into my full game lineup as a complete game.
A similar issue occurred with the "5-Minute Dungeon" campaign; however they were kind enough to provide card backs after the fact and offer refunds to those who were unsatisfied. Because of campaigns such as yours and 5-Minute Dungeon, I must now individually message all PnP campaigns to determine the level of quality of each. I'm not trying to be cheap, but considering the cost of shipping and exchange to my doorstep, it's unfortunately not worth it for me to purchase the physical copy; especially for a 2-player game.
With only 45 PnP backers at $1, I understand it's not a very high priority, but please let us know if you will be releasing a full art PnP in the future. Until then I will probably save my printer ink and cutting labor for a nicer final product.
@Leif - Hey Thanks for checking in.
At this point, we know that Cake Duel will not make the promised July date. We're hoping to release an update when we get a better handle of how late from our manufacturer.
Sorry for the wait; we're still here and working hard every day on getting it beautifully produced!
@ Sizigi - Hi, what's going on with this campaign? It's almost August and their hasn't been any official Update since the end of April.
I actually learned a lot about Oldies songs reading your comments.
