Additions to our next Stretch Goal!

It has been a crazy week (Kickstarter aside!). Today is the last day of a class I'm teaching to kids about writing choice based interactive fiction using the Choosatron. Each kid got to build their own machine, and play their stories on it! Needless to say, they have been my first priority, and I'm thrilled how much fun they've had.

I'll be posting more about future stretch goals later today, so stay tuned.

How about more goodies for stretch #2 at $52,500??? DONE!

9th Level Games (makers of Kobolds Ate My Baby! and other humorous role-playing games) is excited about the options that a CHOOSATRON could have on the tabletop. Chris O’Neill and Dan Landis (creators of KAMB!) will create 2 “apps” for the Choosatron to enhance your Kobolds Ate My Baby game – the KOBOLDTRON and the KOBOLD RANDOM HORRIBLE DEATH MACHINE.

The KOBOLDTRON will create random Kobolds for KAMB using the new charts and details from their upcoming (and recently Kickstarted) KOBOLDS ATE MY BABY! In Colour!!! Game. No fuss, no muss, instant Kobolds! The KOBOLD RANDOM HORRIBLE DEATH MACHINE will allow KAMB! Mayors to have randomly generated deaths spit out from the Choosatron at the push of a button – with lots of fuss, muss and hysterical cartoony death for all! ALL HAIL CHOOSATRON KING TORG!

Thanks for the continued support! Here is picture of some of the Choosatrons the kids built!

      @9thLevel: Thanks 9th Level! I'm so excited to work with you guys! I wonder if there is a future stretch goal where we work on something even bigger together that everyone should be excited about...

      @Laird Popkin: And you can! Since the Choosatron will be open source, you can program it to play all sorts of games. :)
