And Now We Enter Phase II
We’re finally ready to announce “Phase II” of the Golden Sky Stories Kickstarter, which is to say we’re unveiling several new rewards and stretch goals. It took a lot longer to get here than we’d have liked, but we had to make sure we had everything properly figured out both to keep this train on the tracks and to make sure we can deliver a quality product to you in a timely fashion. We’re really grateful for the tremendous response we’ve gotten, and really happy to be able to share this game with over a thousand people!

And that's all for now! I expect to be posting updates about some stretch goals being met before too long (but let's have these ones last more than a day and a half, okay?), plus we have one or two more tricks up our sleeves, so stay tuned! :3
