Welcome like-minded friends!
Ink Whiskey is back again on Kickstarter. Our goal this time is pretty simple: we want to capstone our "Bartendo" line of products. We hit a great and lovely nostalgia nerve with the Retro Game Flask (previously The Entertainment Flask), and we wouldn't feel right about stopping it there. We want you to have the full effect when you sit down to drink, and all the products we're showing to you now seemed like natural additions to the flask. Thus, we *hopefully* bring you the following line of goodies:
The Warp Shot Glass
-Made from bPA free, alcohol-safe, FDA regulated ABS plastic.
-Holds two shots.
-Conveniently designed to fit inside the Kega Man Double Pint for an effect we like to call "The Pixel Bomb."
-Fastest way through/to the floor since gravity.
The Tray Force
-Made from FDA regulated silicone plastic.
-Six count, 2"x2"x1.5" pieces.
-Can help you get into or out of puzzle-ridden dungeons, the choice is yours, really.
The Capper Gun Bottle Opener
-Unlike our budget prototype in the video, the actual Capper Gun will be made with polished Zinc Alloy (here's a good and awesome example)
-1/3rd replica of the original
-Minimally useful for personal protection. Like...if you needed to baby pistol whip something. We're talking last resort though...like...the back up if your chompers are out of commission.
The Kega Man Double Pint
-Made from bPA free, alcohol-safe, FDA regulated ABS plastic
-Due to yet another happy engineering accident, it holds 32 fl oz (hence "Double Pint") while being the same height as a regular pint glass. (real life magic, man--science is crazy)
-Perfectly formed to combo with the Warp Shot Glass for an effect we like to call "The Pixel Bomb."
-When you use this to drink, you might as well be shaking hands with Dr. Light. Just highlighting the benefits, that's all.
-Personal dream come true. I want this so bad.
In addition to these lovely items, we're releasing a true, Kickstarter-only flask label with the title of "Kid Liquorus." Forgive the black background. We're actually making it gray like the original. Image coming soon.

ALSO! we've partnered together with Nano Arcade for our top tier reward to offer a limited number of Mini Barcade packages. Nano Arcade, another Kickstarter-funded project, makes the world's smallest arcade gaming system.
Needless to say, we're very excited about the partnership and the opportunity to provide you with an in-home, small-sized Barcade. We've only got access to 100 units so if you're interested, quick march, soldier!
Thanks so much for the interest guys. We can't wait to make these, and we're so hopeful that all of you potential backers are just as eager to get them as we are.
A "Thank You" For All Ink Whiskey Supporters
To all of our beloved backers and supporters from the first Kickstarter and throughout last year:
Our warmest thanks.
To show you our gratitude, we strive to keep making good gifts for yourselves and others. We've built an amazing company, had some wonderful times, and it's all thanks to you guys. This wouldn't be possible without the revolutionary service of Kickstarter, Ink Whiskey's great team of nostalgia addicts, their wives, and our numerous backers/supporters. Truly a team effort.
We earnestly hope that you're having fun and remembering some good times when you see or use our products. If there's anything we can drive home here and now, it's that this is very much a by-fans for-fans endeavor. Thank you all for your potential support, and thank you to all our previous Kickstarter backers for the success of our first project. YOU GUYS AND GALS ARE THE BEST!
Risks and challenges
Many of the obstacles we've faced with the launch of these new additions is Time and Company Structure. We've grown a lot, and with that comes juggling what to do and when to do it.
The time to start developing new products had to be done in the dead of night between flights to various gaming and pop-culture conventions. The rest of our time was spent handling our popular flask, fulfilling wholesale deals, website orders, etc. There was a steady feeling growing among the team though that there's more to be done here; the flask wasn't the end. Recognizing that and also being able to juggle all that's involved with developing a new product was a huge challenge. The good news is that we've already overcome most of the obstacles in our first time around with the flask, so we're ready for a swift, quick launch of the Kega Man Double Pint, Warp Shot Glass, Tray Force, and Tapper Gun.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
