Access to the behind the scenes blog, which will include all kinds of fun stuff, including my thoughts for the game, little bits and pieces of game world lore that won't be available elsewhere, and many lessons learned! Pledging $3 or more also allows you to participate in the game naming contest (see the project description for what that's about.)
I couldn't change the three dollar reward description so I am adding this reward level.
You are invited to the Before You Close Your Eyes launch party! I have no idea what the parameters of that are yet, but it will be in the SF Bay Area, and will be after the game launches. It may just be at my house. I have to figure out the details still.
DREAMS OF INTRIGUE -- You receive the above, plus a digital copy of the Game Design Journal. The journal will be a copy of my actual game design journal, featuring my sketches and blurbs of writing, arcane diagrams and the like.
All of the above, plus a quality print of the game art (will be the splash screen art unless an illustrator makes several pieces – then you have a choice), with a personalized thank you on the front of it -- suitable for framing!
All of the above, plus a copy of the KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE game design journal. The journal will be a copy of my actual game design journal, featuring my sketches and blurbs of writing, arcane diagrams and the like. And it will come signed! I keep fairly elaborate journals for the games I am working on, and this will be a book to covet. (I covet it and I'm making it!)
COLLABORATION PACKAGE -- All of the above goodies, PLUS you will have the opportunity to suggest, write or design a story that will appear as a playable side quest in the game. You will get access to background materials and sweet sweet spoilers that no one else will have. You can write the whole story or just tell me how you want it to go, and I will work with you to fit it into the game. In addition to your words being added to the game, you will receive a completely legitimate "Additional Design/Writing" credit in the game (and on the game's web-site) that you can use on your resume or just to impress your friends!
JOIN OUR FAMILY! -- You receive all of the above plus three free bonus copies (one for each member of the family!) of the game and a LIFETIME bonus copy on every single indie game I ever make. It's a lifetime buy one get one free offer! Additionally, your name and the link of your choice (PG please!) will appear on the project's web-site. You also will have sent to you a plaster handprint from my two year old daughter in appreciation for making her mama a happy camper.
