Announcing a New Pledge Tier AND Stretch Goals
We've just passed 87% funded and have over 1,000 backers now!!! Welcome to all the new people, and thanks for sticking around to all the people from day one to right now. I'm excited at the direction everything's going. I believe we can do it and fund. Keep up liking and retweeting for the social goals and we'll not only fund -- all physical reward backers will get a bronze Order of the Oven Mitt lapel pin!
Today on the Live stream, I announced the stretch goals and a NEW reward level. You can watch the Live Stream for 48 hours after the broadcast, so if you want to see me playing Flavour Roulette and talking about food photography with Kate Baldwin, check it out quickly!
New Pledge Tier: Seattle Baking Workshop
Want to learn how to make edible games in person? Now you can, with this hands-on workshop in Seattle!
You and someone you like will spend three fun hours learning about how to bake, make and play edible games with me in Seattle.
The workshops are likely to be held before the end of 2018. Exact dates for workshops will be determined based on demand and post-campaign surveys.
It might be late in the game to announce this reward, but it's something I've been asked about numerous times. So better late than never, right!
Stretch Goals: eBook and Baker’s Dozen
We’re heading to the finish line, so what’s on the other side? Here are the stretch goals!
All Digital Version backers and above will get a version of the game suitable for iPads, Kindles and other standard ePub formats. All the same content as the PDF, but easily viewable on your tablet device in your kitchen.
What’s better than a dozen unique edible games? A baker’s dozen of games! That makes it 13 games that you’ll get in the completed cookbook. The 13th game is a game about hidden surprises in a layer cake. I’ve playtested it already and just need to work out the recipe modifications. The kids version is great for turning birthday party cakes into games, whereas the adult version is great for those with adventurous tastes.
Icing on the Cake
Let’s hope we rush past these stretch goals and keep going. If that happens, I don’t want to increase the scope of the book or add things I can’t fulfil. Any extra money will be spent on getting you a better final product: thicker paper, fancy things like gold embossing or other bling for the book itself. Extra money will also allow us to create more “how to” photography for the recipes so you’ll know exactly what to expect every step of the way.
A Note About the Ordering
I came very close to making the Baker's Dozen the first stretch goal -- I really want to add another game to the cookbook! But after looking closely at the budget, I realised that the eBook would cost significantly less to implement. That puts the stretch goal within closer reach, so I decided it should be the first one.
That said - I hope we can have both! If you're eager for a 13th game, please bump up your pledge and/or spread the word to your friends so we can hit $100k before the campaign ends on July 20!
