About

Our voyage be about done, as we sail in to these last hours. Sadly it seems that we might not find our treasure this trip after all, for Kickstarter can be an unforgiving sea to venture out on.

But take heart mateys, for we are not sunk yet! Every good explorer knows that there’s always adventure to be had, as long as ye’ve got a sturdy ship and such a fine crew to sail her with.

This project will be relaunching soon!

Stay up to date at http://harpygames.com/explorersclub

Find the original project below, preserved for posterity:

Celebrate the spirit of discovery & set sail for adventure with this set of soft enamel pins inspired by humanity's fascination with the big blue!

Although the ocean holds more than 97% of our water and produces more than half of our oxygen, we’ve explored less than 5% of it. Who knows what secrets lurks in its depths?  

To reserve your pins, please select from the reward options on the right of this page. If you'd like to customize the number of pins you receive, select the nearest reward option and add $10 per extra pin to your pledge.

Kickstarter is all or nothing - meaning that if we meet or exceed the $900 goal by the due date then we get our pins, but if we are even a little short then project will be canceled. What this means is that if you want these pins don't wait, PLEDGE NOW - we can't do it without you!

These pins won't be available without your support, but if the Kickstarter is successful they will eventually retail for between $12-15 dollars each.

About the Artist

Hello there! My name is Jessica Nida & I'm a game artist. With a day job full of zombies & other nasty beasties, my sketchbooks quickly gets filled with cuties like these.

When I heard about Kickstarter's #make100 initiative, it inspired me to offer some new characters for you to wear as pins.

This is my second solo Kickstarter. You can get the game created by the first one at http://harpygames.com/wrangled. I've also been a part of many other Kickstarters helping to make them successful, and I'll work just as hard to deserve your trust as a backer for this one too.

Thank you for backing!

Risks and challenges

The art is done, a respected manufacturer located, and I've handled mass shipping before with other projects. Not really much more to say here.

Please note that as a security measure, I only ship rewards to the original address you give Kickstarter. If you intend this as a gift, send me a pm (I'll also try to include it as an option on the survey at the end). I'll wrap your pin(s) up extra fancy and include a custom note from you for no extra charge, but I cannot make address changes for you after you've completed the survey. Thank you for understanding!

Also, the pin art shown here are concepts, not final images. Although the art has been initially proofed by the manufacturer it is possible small edits might need to be made in order to achieve the best results.
