Update #39

The Wormworld Saga Treasure Chest - 24 Hours Left!

Comment

I figure that there is a considerable amount of collector's among the backers of the Wormworld Saga App Kickstarter Campaign that might be interested in expanding their collection of exclusive items. Therefore I want to drop you this quick information about the rewards that are exclusive to the current Wormworld Saga Treasure Chest Kickstarter Campaign just to make sure that you aren't missing on the opportunity.

These items will never be sold in this form again:

And these are the items that every backer of the campaign will receive as freebies:

Two postcards

A large (7,6cm) magnetic button

A digital wallpaper set (the image above is only to give a general idea)

Also, every backer will receive a Paper Toy PDF as a digital download. We've already reached a stretchgoal that added Raya as an additional character to the PDF. Should be reach $20,000, Loki will be added to the PDF, too.

We've got 24 hours left until the campaign closes, so if you're interested don't hesitate!

Update #38

The Wormworld Saga - New Kickstarter Campaign

Comment

Dear backers of the Wormworld Saga App, 

yesterday we launched a new kickstarter campaign:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/daniellieske/the-wormworld-saga-treasure-chest

As you all did a great job supporting the Wormworld Saga in the last campaign I thought that it would make sense to let you know about that. Any contribution will help! 

Have a nice weekend!

-Daniel Lieske 


Update #37

The Wormworld Saga App on Android Tablets

Comment

Dear backers, 

about a month ago Robot Media released the Wormworld Saga App for Android tablets. We had some initial problems with the latest version of the Android operation system but these are resolved. It's now save to invite you to download the Wormworld Saga App from Google play:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.robotmedia.wormworld

To access the special content inside the app, you'll have to provide us your info via this web-form:

https://spreadsheets0.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGlwb004NW14d3lXYkdSME9kTnczYVE6MQ 

We will then send out a promo code to you which will provide access to the special features according to your pledge tier. 

Enjoy the app!


Update #36

The Wormworld Saga App receives Publishing Innovation Award

5 comments

I just want to drop a quick note for all backers of the Wormworld Saga App. The Wormworld Saga App received the Publishing Innovation Award in the comics/graphic novel app category on the Digital Book World Conference & Expo that was recently held in New York. This is a huge success and I just want to thank you all again for your support and contribution to the project. We truly were able to make a statement with the Wormworld Saga App and the American publishing industry now officially has noticed that.


Update #35

The Wormworld Saga App launched on iPad!

7 comments

Welcome to the final Monday Update here on kickstarter.com!

Yes, it's done! After 5 months of development, the Wormworld Saga App has finally arrived. I'm not even able to fully comprehend this right at the moment. It's just a weird thing to work towards a certain goal over such a long time and then, just by the matter of a button click, you launch something into the internet and let it run free. I remember this feeling from the launch of the first chapter but I think I'll never get used to it. 

But this single click marks the point of an extraordinary achievement. Through your support, a single independent creator was able to lay the groundwork for his future. I have high hopes for the tablet as a platform for comics and graphic novels. And with the announcement of the Amazon Fire a few days ago - a color tablet that will cost only $200 - my hopes have even increased. My hope is to fully refinance my work on the Wormworld Saga through app sales. That way I would stay independent and could make sure that the Wormworld Saga is told the way it's meant to be told. It's still a long way up to this point of course. We launched the app into a universe of apps and it will take some time to get noticed. But the most important requirement for this plan to succeed is met: the app is there and the journey has just begun! 

You find the app inside the iTunes App Store by simply performing a search for "Wormworld" or you can use this link here:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-wormworld-saga/id453680677?ls=1&mt=8

Please note, that the app isn't launched worldwide yet. We found a nasty bug that would spoil your experience of the app if you are living in a country where American English, Spanish, German or French is not the standard language. Therefore we only launched in countries where this is the case. All other countries (including UK) will have to wait another few days until a fixed version is approved by apple.

If you should experience the "black screen of death", because you have the app installed but your iPad is not set to one of the four languages, you can fix this by simply going into the settings inside the app and chosing one of the languages available there. The bug currently is that none of these four languages is selected by default and you'll see only a black screen if you open Chapter 1 on an iPad that has a language setting different from the four languages available inside the app.

BTW, you would directly support the success of the app by giving it a rating or writing a review inside the iTunes App Store.

Ok, that's is for now. I still have some work to do on the kickstarter campaign (the top tier backers are still waiting for their watercolors and I received some packages back that didn't reach their destinations) but to clarify these issues I will contact the involved backers directly. This was the last regular Monday Update. I invite you all to follow the further progress of the Wormworld Saga project via my blog or via the news feed inside the Wormworld Saga App. 

I will check back here from time to time. The Android version of the app is currently under development and I'll announce the launch here. And I guess there might be other interesting stuff for you backers, too. 

Oh, and check out the credits inside the app! You are all there! :)

Man, I hate saying good bye...

Good Bye!
