Thank you so much for your support! The campaign funded in just 40 minutes which is insane.
A couple of awesome things are going to happen:
1) I immediately hired the illustrator, Matt Franklin, to start work on the 2nd half of the illustrations
This should speed up production and hopefully get Fry Thief to you a few weeks earlier than expected.
It also means I can share some fun work in progress sketches with you as the campaign goes on.
2) We can announce some stretch goals
If you've never heard of stretch goals before - they're extra things a campaign can add since I can order more units from the manufacturer. We raised enough money to pay for the minimum print run and now I can invest a bit more money in new art & getting a few new cards.
2a) $3,500 - New Card - I Know What You're Planning.
The first stretch goal will be unlocked at $3,500 and it's called I Know What You're Planning.
Name a card. If your opponent has that card in their hand you may take and immediately play that card.
I actually had I Know What You're Planning in the 1st prototype and it's arguably my favorite card. I eventually took it out of the game because it isn't a lot of fun for new players. So once you've played the game a few times add this card in. If you can count cards you'll have a fun time guessing what you opponent has and be able to take it and play it.
This is a red card so it can be played by any player.
2b) $3,750 - New Art
The second stretch goal makes the game prettier. I love the variable player powers on the backside of the plate cards. Right now they reuse some of the art from the cards. With enough funding I can commission new artwork to make the game even more visually appealing.
Besides don't you want to know how the illustrator will draw "Health Nut" and "Hand Slapper"? I know I do.
2c) $4,000 - 3-4 Player Mode
The third stretch goal lets you enjoy stealing fries with more players. I've heard a ton of requests to make this game work with more players. If we can get to $4,000 I'll add in a 3-4 player mode for the game.
The game will still be designed to work primarily as a 2 player game but we'll give you a bit of flexibility to play with 3 or 4 people when the need arises.
Note: To get the most out of this mode you'll need extra tokens and cards. I will explain this more as we get closer to hitting this goal.
3) Livestream Today
There will be a livestream in less than 2 hours 🕒. If you want to see how the game is played tune in.
You'll also see me eat some of those fries I promised. OM NOM NOM.
What You Can Do
If you can help spread the word (and many of you already have - thank you!) we can get a few more backers and hit these stretch goals. 🤞
Or you can upgrade your own pledge and share Fry Thief with a few extra people.
Thank you for joining me so far. 🙏 I can't wait to share more work in progress shots 🖼!
PS. There's still 2 slots left for the Add Your Likeness Pledge.
