Hello Crootle backers: It’s a good news, bad news kind of update.
BAD NEWS first (‘cause it isn't that bad). In the last update we asked you to give us suggestions on how to boost our project momentum. We had several people offer a number of great ideas for us to try, and a few pointed out the flaws in our presentation.
The honesty was greatly appreciated. So we sat down and made a list of everything we did wrong in this campaign. When we took the time to put it down on paper, it was an eye opener. We made a lot of mistakes!
So we are going to fix them. To do that we need to first cancel this project. Which leads us to the GOOD NEWS. We will re-launch on September 16th with a completely new presentation.
Because each one of you played such a positive role in our project, even as bad as it was presented, we offer you an incentive to return – a reward for hanging on. When you come back to the new project within two days of its new launch, and pledge anything other than the $1 level, we are going to include in your order – absolutely FREE – a copy of the Crootle Card Game, which is the game presented in our current project. This FREE offer is ONLY to you, our current backers!
We are not going to let this re-launch interfere with your gift giving plans. As you can see by the reviews and comments we’ve received and posted, Crootle is a lot of fun, and so we are going to do everything humanly possible to get the game of Crootle in your hands before the upcoming winter holidays. We want you to feel comfortable that if you get Crootle to give as gifts, they will arrive.
Over the next three weeks we will post a couple of updates to keep you abreast of our new project. We can always be reached through http://Crootle.com or admin@WorldVillageGames.com if you should have any questions.
Two final thoughts. One of our flaws this time around is we didn’t build-up our social media base. If you haven’t already, please go to our Facebook page and LIKE us. We would like to get this number up to 300 and can do so with your help. (As an incentive, we are giving away a FREE Crootle Card Game every time we increase LIKES by 20.) https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crootle
Lastly, in addition to all the support we have received from you, our backers, other projects posted on Kickstarter have given us their support. I encourage you to go check out this lively party game and consider adding it to your projects backed. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wjg/pong-tactics/posts/581018
Thank you for your incredible support!
