Where do we go from here?
It's been one week since our Kickstarter success! And it's been a super busy one for us. We're working hard to make sure everything is in order financially, aligning everyone internally to move forward once again on development, and also doing our fair share of celebrating! To bring you guys up to speed on what we plan on for the near future, here's the run down.
All backers whose payment went through will get an email some time soon requesting any relevant reward info. Address, shirt size, etc. Take another look the reward tier fulfillment dates and notice they're all over the place depending on when in development we anticipate it might be ready. Those dates are what you should follow for those various rewards. The earliest ones are the shirts and prints for November 2012.
Soon we will be transitioning our primary news outlets out of Kickstarter. Our site will get a revamp to include much of the Project Lodus info you've seen here and we'll be making room for a Leviathan news blog that will function pretty much exactly like these Kickstarter updates have. And in addition to that, we'll be creating a newsletter list to keep everyone up to date on these vital updates. Of course our Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr will continue to operate and are another great place to stay on top of what we're doing.
Founder's Club on our forums is still being prepared. Game development took a major backseat to Kickstarter marketing the past couple months, so as we ramp up development again, we'll be able to populate special areas like that and open it up to those that backed at that tier. Stay tuned for more info on that.
Some people have been asking if we would be able to offer another avenue for backing Project Lodus, and maybe offering some rewards there. That seems like a great plan, but we need to figure out the logistics of it. If we can do it, we'll let everyone know asap!
One thing that we learned through the massive Kickstarter push is that staying socially active on the web, even for a small company like ours, is a big undertaking! It's something we love to do, but it's a big time suck. We are committed to staying in touch with our fans and never going completely dark, so that's not going to happen. Be aware though that as we begin to use the money you all have so awesomely given to us, we'll be working hard and be less active on our social networks. Know that our occasional silence means we're working that much harder to make Project Lodus amazing for you guys. We're working out the best way to make sure that despite our intense schedule we still connect with all of you so stay tuned on this as well. For now, the forums are still the best way to be a part of the community. We check it daily!
Last but not least, we randomly picked the 10 Project Lodus tshirt winners from our 470 backers today! Emails will be sent to each of you soon. Names shown as they appear on Kickstarter.
Thanks again to each and every one of you!
