Clarifying Pupdate on Energy Cards and Custom Dog Sheets

23 likes

Hi hoomans, Brian here!

Have you ever confused 900 people all at once? Well, on Saturday, I was taking my dog Lupin for a walk when I realized that’s exactly what I’d done. Woof!

Clarifying Information

On Saturday, we sent out an update featuring the game’s revised Energy Deck. We also asked $300-level backers (who have dogs in the Energy Deck) to review their illustrations if they hadn’t had a chance to yet.

However, in our excitement to share the new look of the energy cards, we worded the update in a way that made many $75 - $150 level backers think we had sent them their custom dogs to be reviewed. As a result, many were rightfully confused, because they had not received any custom dog sheets.

If you’re one of those people who will be getting custom playable dogs from the $75 - $150 backer levels, or from backerkit add-ons, we want to make sure you know that you do not need to do anything further. We have not begun laying out the custom playable dogs yet. That’s one of our big tasks for October.

With over 1,000 custom dog cards getting created, we will not have an opportunity to review those cards with every backer individually. That said, if you have special concerns about your photo or if you're worried it won't render well on the card, you are more than welcome to reach out to us at makebigthings@gmail.com. We will work with you to make sure the photo and custom dog card look their best!

We’re going to be giving our all to these custom playable dogs. Each photo will be individually modified to fit into the game’s style and placed on an illustrated background. Backers will receive digital and physical copies of the customized sheet and accompanying token, along with a letter of thanks! We hope you find the result as cool as we do. :)

Here's our demo image from the Kickstarter campaign of what your custom dog sheets will look like! We have since made some improvements that will allow us to make your dog image even bigger. We'll share those in a future update!

Thanks for working through the confusion with us!

We’re sorry to those we confused. We’re so excited to get you this game, as well as the two expansions and your custom dogs. We’re grateful for everyone who reached out and chatted with us, as it reaffirmed to us how enthusiastic people are to get the game and their custom playable doggos. Good Dog, Bad Zombie has an absolutely amazing community, and it really means a lot to us to be making something people care this deeply about. We were delighted to get the chance to connect with many of you individually and hear about how you’re looking forward to getting the game.

Also, I’d like to apologize to my dog Lupin, whose walk was cut extremely short on Saturday when I realized what had happened. I’ll buy you a new chew toy to make up for it, buddy. We can practice taking on zombies!

Best, 

Brian

      @Jordan - I really appreciate the kind words and really glad to hear it was reassuring! We really love our community of backers, and we're so grateful for all of you.

      @Tiffiny - For sure, at the top of this page, on desktop, right below "Pre-order now", the Kickstarter page will tell you what level you supported at. I can let you know as well that you backed at the level where you get one custom playable dog. Your dog will be digitally filtered and placed on an illustrated background. It is too late to upgrade at this point, as we're heading to the press momentarily. The good news is that means we'll be getting folks the game and their custom doggos in the not too distant future!

      Is there a way to confirm which package I backed at? I honestly can't remember if my level included my puppy being illustrated into the game (I hope it did--because that's so cool! ). I DO remember uploading a picture of my dog...I just don't remember which level I was at, and if her picture just gets on a card, or if she gets illustrated. :( I'm guessing it's too late to upgrade my pledge...

      Hi Brian,

      Thank you for your lovely response to my comment yesterday, it was very reassuring. I didn't respond then as you seemed to have your hands full ahaha.

      The way you and the GDBZ team has handled this has been great but I'm sure Lupin will love his surprise treat!

      Thank you a lot 😊

      Hey Zoltan, thanks so much for that - it's much appreciated. It's been heartwarming to see how understanding people have been. We've got the best backers in the world! We're excited to get everyone this game.

      Hi Brian, not to worry - no-one is perfect, and we all make mistakes. The telling part is how you deal with those mistakes - and you've dealt with it perfectly!
