WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THANK YOU!

I can't express what this means to me. I'm blown away by the events of the past month. Other than working on rewards and a few final pixel art commissions, I'm going to be taking a rest for the next week as I prepare to dive into development.

Posters and other Rewards!

We'll be sending surveys out later this week to collect information for rewards. I've already ordered the posters, and they should arrive here by next Thursday. It will take me about a week to ship all of them, so don't be surprised if you get yours before Christmas!

Here are a few notes about the various rewards:

Video Updates
I'll be posting video updates every two to three weeks as we develop the game. They will be super fun to watch and you will enjoy them immensely.

Beta Access, Book of Secrets, and Soundtrack:
These items will be ready at the same time, in around August of next year, a few months before the game is released. The Book of Secrets will contain lots of... secrets, so I don't want to have them spoiled early.

Posters
As noted, these should be sent out within two weeks! The posters look like this:

Design Notebook Page/Concept Art
 These will be sent out next year after our alpha version is complete. Because we didn't have many backers at these levels, I may send two pieces each instead of one.

Creative Stuff (Audio, Set Piece, NPC)
We'll be personally emailing each of you to discuss how to implement your ideas.

Coloring Book + Music EP
These will be finished and shipped some time in January!


~Final Hours Party!~

We had an awesome time at the Dropsy Final Hours Party. There were coloring activities, face-painted plastic animals, tons of live music, balloons, and a totally not-awkward dance competitions!

Coloring!

 Thanks again! Don't forget to follow Dropsy on Facebook or Twitter for smaller updates.
