Herbaceous Trio, Mother's Day, SGs Unlocked, and Edo Reach out!
The outpouring and support for Herbaceous continues to blow us away. We're just 4 days into the campaign and we have over 925 backers and $25,000 pledged!
And Some of You Want More...
People have been asking about additional copies of Herbaceous. To help accommodate this, we've now added a Herbaceous Trio Bundle
How About The Butterfly Garden Bundles?
Unfortunately, we only had 125 copies of TBG for the campaign. Occasionally, people downgrade reward tiers, so I do recommend checking back to see if a slot opens. GemPacked Cards is also limited, so please note that there are only 30 GPC Bundles left.
Give Mom the Joy of Gaming!
A number of people have been asking about Herbaceous shipping in time for Mother's Day. We are confident it will ship to backers prior to May 1st, 2017 in advance of Mother's Day on Sunday, May 14th. In particular, because we funded so quickly.
Having said that, I racked my brain because - while I'm confident; things happen - in the last year we've seen port strikes, brexit, etc. So to make this work I decided to do the following: In the unlikely case it is tracking behind, we'll provide you with a backer exclusive digital Herbaceous Mother's Day card to let her know the game is on the way!
Oh, We've Also Unlocked All Our Stretch Goals!
Holy moly, look at this in all of it's glory...
Now, a number of people have been asking about additional Stretch Goals and bringing up a variety of ideas. The team is discussing and considering these, but the truth is this campaign has exceeded all of our expectations. When considering additional stretch goals beyond those planned, I want everyone to consider a few things.
Herbaceous is a great game because we playtested, playtested, playtested
We don't believe in rushing a design just to have a new SG to hit.
We put the cool extra stuff in from the beginning
We wanted to make sure to have a KS Exclusive for everyone, so we designed and added the Flavor Pack. Having a Solo version in a game like this was super appealing so we designed it before the campaign.
We want you to get a great product on time.
Kickstarter just doesn't have to be a place where people miss dates, deliver late, or deliver sub-par products. To do that, we need to be smart about what gets added and when.
Does that mean there are flat out no more stretch goals? No, not necessarily, but it does mean that a) there won't be one tomorrow and b) we'll only do it if it makes sense.
One Last Thing: Edo Reachouts
From the first campaign PFG has ever run, I've reached out to each backer directly to learn more about the project and cool ideas and suggestions. The success of Herbaceous had me daunted at first, but when you believe in something you do it. So, I've now started the outreach. I'm actually 300 backers in...but that does mean there are almost 700 left. It will probably take me a week or so, but I'll get there!
Nothing is more exciting than the idea that you'll all be able to play Herbaceous with your friends and family. Thanks again!
