A Sneak Peek of Layered Loveliness
TL;DR – Take a look at our layered sets and tell us what you think!
2/3 of the way to funding! It's slow and steady up in here, folks. Thank you for all your support and word-spreadery.
And double thank you for all of your delicious, delicious feedback. Seriously, why is this Kickstarter so full of food references? Those Points do look good enough to eat, but…
CARRIE! You’re as bad as Fred, with all the rambling.
We work well together for a reason. You should see the ridiculousness that goes on in the company Slack. It’s full of puns and sarcasm and tangents.
Aren’t you supposed to be showing us some dice?
Don’t you mean delicious, delicious dice?
Okay, okay! Don’t throw anything at me! I’ll show you the dice! They are pretty enough to eat. Er. I mean. Yeah. They’re really pretty.
First, we’ve got Sky Dice, which soar up through shades of sky blue mixed with white to evoke a cloudy sky. These are an opaque layered set, so very different than the other blues we’ve offered, which were all iridescent or translucent.
Next, we’ve got Malachite Dice. If you’re familiar with the semi-precious stone, you’ll instantly get the look we’re going for here. These are layered in a deep green with more of a grey undertone than our other green offerings. Again, we’re also looking at opaque layers in each die.
Last but definitely not least, we’ve got Aquatic Dice. These layers descend through turquoise waters to settle in indigo depths that mimic the deep sea. Also in opaque layers. Essential for your pirate mermaid selkie games. (Seriously, I need one of those now.)
In all of the above images, you’ll notice that the symbols are inked on the layered sides, while the blanks are on the flat colors. We’d like to turn them so that you get the full effect of the layers on the blanks without them being obscured by the symbols. So the above prototypes aren’t exactly right, but they’re pretty darned close.
Check out all those elements!
That’s exactly right! We’ve had a couple of people express interest in having dice in all four elements, and coincidentally, we have just that right here. The already-revealed Infernal Dice would be fire. Then you’ve got Sky for air, Malachite for earth, and Aquatic for—you guessed it—water. Our idea was that you could pick your preferred element or get the whole set of them and mix and match to your heart’s content.
So what now?
Well, as before, we’d like to hear what you think about these dice. Are you interested? Do you like them more or less than the already revealed goals or the glow sets in Update 2? Should we be bumping these sets up in the priority line? We want to hear your thoughts—tell us in the comments below!
And as we head into the weekend, we'd appreciate anything you can do to help spread the word so we can make it over that last third and into stretch goal land. Our marketing monkeys are working overtime to do the same. We'll see you next week with more pretty dice, more gorgeous points, and probably more food references because it seems to be a thing now.
