Risks and challenges

The Creative Team behind SURVIVE THIS!! Vigilante City has collectively created and released more than 20 RPG products! Bloat Games, has launched and fulfilled 3 previous Kickstarters: SURVIVE THIS!! Dark Places & Demogorgons, The Complete Vigilante Hack & SURVIVE THIS!! Zombies! 2nd Edition which have all been delivered early or are in the process of being fulfilled ahead of schedule.

From Eric:
There are of course risks, and while I believe that I have been thorough in my research of the Do's and Don’ts while running a Kickstarter. This is my 4th Kickstarter, so I still plan for surprises and hiccups along the way. This is why the promise date is in June 2019. I feel very confident that I can deliver the rewards well before then but I recognize the need for a contingency in case problems arise. I will stay transparent in my campaign and will update the backers frequently to what is happening and the current status of things.

Some potential problem areas that I will be monitoring closely are: Printing & Shipping and Stretch Goal fulfillment.
