About this project
The Bad News
We tried to raise the funds (here on Kickstarter) to make Dam It into a board game and didn't meet our lofty goal of $30,000. Please see our original project to learn about the game.
The Good News
We are not giving up.
Green Haven Games is turning Dam It first into a - you guessed it, iPad / iPhone / iPod app. With more than 200 million "i" users, we know that this will be the perfect platform to share our creations. Once we are able to get the game more notice as an app, we will attempt another board game pre-order. This time we will have a completely finished game, more time under our belts, financial help from app sells, and a community of people that know about Dam It.
After funding is reached, we expect the app project to take six months to complete. We will keep backers updated here on Kickstarter and on the company website.
The only thing that we don't have are the characters for the game and the funds to pay the artist for the final board artwork. So in one swoop, you step in. Become a character by pledging for a First Class ticket on board the plane. Since this is a digital project we wont have any printing, shipping, or distribution costs.
About the App
Dam It will first be made into an iPad app because the large format will be truer to its board game roots. Shortly after the iPad version is released, we will make it available for the iPhone, iPod, and select Android devices.
Caricatures as a Pledge Prize
We are making YOU the playable characters in this game. We have plenty of professions that you can choose from or you can suggest your own. Won’t it be exciting to have people all around the world be you or your loved one? Oh, and each character will have a special ability that will change the game! (Kind of like a super power.) The art requirements for this are simple. Send us an email with a head-shot, and the artist will make you into a character. If you have a specific outfit or look that you want your character to have, send it and we will see if we approve. This project is G-rated, so nothing revealing, please. Each of the characters on this list are stereotypes. We want the art to stand out, the characters to be entertaining, and for it to be easy to tell them apart.
Once you pledge for a specific role, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will keep this list updated. These will be offered as a first-come-first-served basis with the time stamp on your email securing your position. The Male Nurse and the Ren-Faire Blacksmith are already taken,
Each role is open to any sex, color, race, religion, or age.
