Update #2

New "RANGER" funding level added to Fargoal 2 campaign

Comment

Dear Fargoal 2 Fans and Supporters:

We have gotten several great questions and requests which have ultimately prompted us to think outside of the box and add a NEW reward level that addresses both goals:

  • Do we have a reward level that offers both iOS Universal AND desktop (Mac/PC/Linux)? So we thought, "Well, why not?" And now we've added a way for you to pay just $4 more than the "JOURNEYMAN" level (still getting all of that level's great stuff), and get BOTH platforms at the new $29 "RANGER" reward level.
  • Do we plan to make an Android version of Sword of Fargoal 2? We've also heard loud and clear that many people want to see an Android version of Sword of Fargoal 2. And we do too! In fact, we've been wanting to do one for a long time... If you read through our Kickstarter page you see we have a $110K stretch-goal — which we think we can reach with your help — and if we do, we will not only make an Android version, but we will include it with the "RANGER" level! Supporting the level still gets you all the rewards at the "JOURNEYMAN" level no matter what, PLUS both iOS and desktop platforms, but the Android version comes to you at this level only if we achieve the stretch-goal. But don't worry, because if we do reach the $110K stretch goal we will add additional reward levels to get the Android version as a stand-alone, so you may choose to wait if Android is all you are after (and not iOS and desktop combined)...

Why do we have Android as a stretch-goal and not just included? Because the reality is that we will be so hard at work on all of the *other* amazing new things for Fargoal 2 that we need all the time we have to make sure we get Sword of Fargoal 2 packed full of all those goodies! Android, however, will benefit from anything new we put in — so the $110K stretch-goal allows us to not only make a *killer* base game, but hire the additional coding support we will need to get the Android version completed on the same timeline.

So "Thank You" for your two great suggestions, and we hope this additional "RANGER" level helps you if you want to open up your platform horizons for Fargoal 2. We've targeted it to do just that.

And also "Thank You" all so much for helping us to blow past our needed goals within the first 24 hours and top $3,700 in just one day!! Amazing show of support on your part. It looks *very hopeful* that we might make our goals, and even go beyond.

Finally, as promised, here is the new screen shot that I promised I'd include with every update. And this is a big one: You've always wanted to have a new, larger "Map View" in Fargoal that shows you more detail? Well here it is! In the item management and stats screens there will also be a MAP tab with just such information. And this, by the way, is in addition to the mini-map that we will still retain in the game that people have always appreciated.

Cheers!

Jeff McCord

    “FUZZY WEREBEAR” LEVEL. Stretch-goal only. This is for people who want plushies and nothing but plushies (you know who you are!).

Plus (as a group) you’ll decide which character will make it to plushihood. Will it be the Hero? The Werebear? The Dwarf? The All-Star Linebacker? (no, not that one). If we don’t achieve enough funding to make this stretch goal, we’ll automatically bump you up to the $50 level, so it’s a win-win situation.
