Moving Forward


Hello, Obductees.

Next week is Thanksgiving here in the US. We hope all our American backers have a terrific holiday. We are so grateful for the last year and the wild ride we have been a part of. Even with the start of the holiday season here in the States, we won’t be slowing down.

Internally we are trying to hit a few deadlines before Christmas. We will continue to try to update you on developments.

With that in mind, here we go!

Pledge Receipts:

We've been diligently working on our database of Obduction backers. If you pledged enough to get a reward you should receive an email from in the next few days. This email is your receipt and confirmation of rewards. Please watch for it and reply to it with any corrections. Please DO NOT email us if everything looks correct.


We’re trying very hard to get the backer-exclusive t-shirts in your hands by Christmas, but a lot of things need to fall into place to make that happen. We’re excited about the t-shirt design, and we’re hoping to give you a sneak peak soon. It gives me flashbacks of that concert I went to in 2001 in Appleton, WI... but that's a story for another day.

Thanks for the awesome support,


Sue Campbell, omugosh, and 105 more people like this update.

      I'd love to hear some development updates, or even milestone timelines, here on Kickstarter. What's the target date for Alpha completion? Maybe this is on the backer forum instead?
