1,291 backers pledged CA$ 422,390 to help bring this project to life.

Wherein we are successfully funded!


My dearest friends,

At 10:01am EDT yesterday, our Kickstarter campaign ended, at the nearly unbelievable value of $422,391, making this the second most successful Canadian Art Kickstarter, and the fourteenth most successful in Canada overall. I am deeply honoured by the faith you have placed in us, and look forward to sending this experience to you and those you hold in highest esteem.

As you may have noticed, we have redacted the majority of the information on our Kickstarter page, in order to minimize the information available to those who might receive this experience.

There are several upcoming dates you should be aware of:

  • On or shortly after July 22nd, Kickstarter will transfer us the funds and make the details of our funded members available to us.
  • Before July 31st, we expect the BackerKit surveys to go out, which shall permit you to apply your pledge and let us know the specifics of what rewards and add-ons you wish to send or receive, as well as provide a method to connect your pledge to your Member account on our website. You shall also be able to supplement your pledges to accommodate for inaccurate shipping calculations, or add any other add-ons you wish to include at this time.
  • In October, those selections shall appear as credits on your account on our website, and you may then redeem them, specifying the recipient for each item or group of items at that time.

More information shall be provided later this month in backers-only updates. Once again, thank you for your support of this project. You shall not even believe your eyes when you see it.

Your servant,

The Curator
at The Mysterious Package Company

      Any word on the BackerKit surveys? This was my first encounter with The Company, so I don't have a membership yet--I am trusting all will be explained on how to move forward!

      That would have been a great comment... posted in private update #17, not this public update #18 as I warned earlier. Posting those phrases in public means google will have more to associate with now.
      Also, the link only has part of the phrase, not the whole thing.
      I agree with your post and most of the details, just quibble about where it's posted since it's adding to the issue.

      Anyway, the above are some reasons why I've suggested that the creators avoid the C--- B--- phrase entirely in their mailings.

      We might want to consider asking people sponsoring this project to use search their engines for "Century Beast" and then click on the Century Beast anime sites. It's the fastest way to move Kickstarter lower down the food chain. But it's hard to move the kickstarter link down the food chain when it contains the words, 'century-beast' as part of the link.

      Frankly, I don't understand why Kickstarter wouldn't agree to having the code that prevents a crawl in the header of this campaign -- or changing the link, with a notice sent to sponsors about the new link.

      Bloggers are also a problem wrt to a search, most people are willing to go beyond this first page of Google results. There were quite a few people blogging this all up during the campaign, including pix.

      That emshort creature must have quite a following, she comes up via her blog and via her pix several times. You'd think if she was gung-ho enough to blog it, she'd be gung-ho enough (on behalf of keeping the surprise for the recipients) to understand the problem and at the very least put the code in her header so she isn't in the Google crawl and ask that Google cease to include links to that page.

      Same goes for Wayback Machine, people can ask for history to be removed, whether Kickstarter, MPC, or various bloggers.

      Just sayin.

      Just a warning to people going to comment, this is a public update, not backers only. Be careful what you say
