Stretch Goals Revealed! 🐦👀

66 likes

Hey Sword Smoochers!

Alright, are you ready to learn more about our stretch goals?! (Also -- $100k CAD already?! Y'all are THIRSTY. We love it.)

For our first stretch goal at $125,000 CAD, meet Rowan Blair, the witch heir apparent of Verona Beach, and part-time Scythe. They'll be our second non-binary dateable character! 

As we said in the previous update, this babe was an original design explicitly for the game by HATO MOA, the creator of Hatoful Boyfriend.

Rowan doesn’t have many friends, and mostly relies on the companionship of their (Friend? Pet? Familiar?) white raven. They’re grieving… can you help them acclimate to the modern world?

We imagine the Scythe would be a slow but high-damage weapon, risky but perfect for highly skilled players. Let's get Rowan funded! Then we'll reveal a little bit more about them. :)

What about the other Stretch Goals?

So here’s what’s up and coming in the plans (all amounts in CAD):

Is that a hair dyeing stretch goal? Yes. Yes it is. It's just a fun thing we added in there -- we're DEDICATED to the dunj, okay? The team will be dyeing their the Boyfriend Dungeon colors so think pink, blue, or silver...

We'll reveal more stretch goals when we hit Rowan, so keep sharpening those blades!

Meanwhile, our next Twitch stream will be on August 22nd with Dr. NerdLove! We'll be answering allll your questions about dating blades there, so watch out. Or join our Discord to get insider-only info...

xoxo,

Victoria, Tanya, and the Kitfox team

      Hair dyeing stretch goal, I love it. Based on the "which weapon" quiz I got Sawyer (which is sweet because I love spear weapons) but oh mannn a scythe too? And I already had additional eyes on that handsome epee...

      Only one female? Where's parity in all that?! :p (God I sure hope that Valeria won't be the only female... ^^")

      On the one hand, I was hoping for another female character. On the other, Rowen seems pretty cool. 🤔

      Oh well, I guess we'll just have to unlock more stretch goals and more characters.

      A scythe!? Omggg all my dreams are coming true. (Literally after backing yesterday, I say to my husband, "All I want now is a bow...or a scythe, but that probably won't happen.") Screw getting a bow, there's a scythe and that's what matters.

      Yesssss more enbies!

      @Joseahfer yes because the only part of the process to put another character in the game is a design sketch...

      Basically you're asking almost the same than for the project for a guy to design a character. And it's already in sketch!

      Pretty unfair and dishonest.

      Thank you for including another non-binary weapon!

      Can I request a wizard-type staff please? Swords are all well and good but sometimes you want to hit things with a bigass stick.

      3 male blades, 2 non-binary but only 1 female? I really hope the next blade is going to be female...
