I just got back from the post office because I was sending out the postcards and bookmark add-ons. That means we have officially fulfilled all the backer rewards. WE ARE DONE! Whoo hoo! We had to resend a few packages, but I think with a few exceptions, everyone should have their rewards by now.
If you are missing digital rewards, use the Humble Key Resender to get the codes/links. If you haven’t received a package, let me know, and I’ll see what I can do. There were quite a few international letters for the postcards and bookmarks, so I’m not sure when those will arrive, but hopefully soon.
Fulfilling all the kickstarter rewards is a great weight lifted off of my shoulders. While we were on time with the game, the physical rewards and special backer portraits, paintings, etc took way longer than I expected. I’m actually quite embarrassed that it took us until now to get everything out! However, compared to other successful kickstarters, I think we did okay. It is tough to deliver everything by the date you pick near the start of the project!
Now that I’m done, I can focus all my efforts on the next game, which is shaping up to be pretty exciting. The name has been a bit of a sticking point though. If you’d like to join the discussion, we have a thread on the backers only forum. (If you haven't set up an account yet, use your kickstarter email, and it should automatically grant you access. Otherwise, let me know) It also includes juicy details about the setting and antagonist of the game, so if you are impatient, check it out and leave a comment!
I’d like to thank everyone again for your help making my dream of making Neverending Nightmares come true! Developing the game was an amazing experience, and I really couldn’t have done it without your help. We are going to be turning to kickstarter again for our next project, so if it isn’t too much to ask, I hope I can count on your support next time. Thank you so so so so much!
PS. Have you seen the latest Humble Weekly Bundle? There is a great selection of monochromatic games including Neverending Nightmares for $10 up. It ends tomorrow morning, so check it out soon. :)
PPS. Is anyone else excited about a new Toejam and Earl? I know I am! Kickstarter is awesome at giving creators a chance to revisit types of games that aren't being made now.
