May Update: It's Quiet. Too Quiet.

Posted by Matthew McFarland (Creator)

Greetings, envoys! 

It's nearing the end of May, but I don't have a lot to report. That's actually a good thing. Monsters is now available for sale in PDF right here. If you've downloaded your backer copy and had a chance to read it, perhaps go on over there and give us a nice rating or review? 

The print copies are at press, and I have no reason to assume there will be any problem getting them into backers' hands in August. ETA: I've just been informed that the books are in fact on their way to the US as we speak! Yay! Monsters in bound on a ship! 

There are about a dozen of you that haven't filled out your BackerKit. Please remember that if you don't fill out the BackerKit, you won't get your rewards. If you're getting physical product shipping to you, you'll be asked for a credit card, but it will not actually be charged until July 1st

BackerKit Closes July 1st

This is basically what I just said, but I'm saying it bigger. I'm closing the BackerKit and charging everyone's cards on July 1st. I'll send out a 24-hour warning, so that if you need to put money in an account or change cards or whatever, you'll be able to do that.

Other Things of Interest

  • Event registration for GenCon opens this Sunday (May 28) at noon EST. There are 10 different Chill events being run, so if you want to play, you should be able to get into one! 
  • I'm running two games of Chill at the upcoming Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio, June 15-18. I don't know if there are seats left or not, but my experience is that if you show up with some generic tickets there's a non-zero chance you'll get to play. 
  • I'm running a game of Chill this weekend at Nexus Game Fair in Milwaukee, Wisconsin! My game is Sunday 10AM-2PM, and I think you can sign up on their site. 
  • You can get news about Growling Door Games, including Chill and other upcoming projects (like our cyberpunk RPG Daedalus) by signing up for our mailing list here.

As always, thank you so much for your support!

      Nwm, found it on my account, these backerkit remindings confused me. :)

      I double-checked today and I have filled out my backerkit, but I haven´t got a follow up e-mail with the coupon code, or it got lost somehow. Is it possible to resend the mail?

      Hullo, Matt,

      Thanks for the update on the project. Greatly appreciated. :)

      Umm, can you check to see whether I filled out my BackerKit for the project? I could have sworn that I did, but I'm not sure. Thanks. :)

      Matt, I've updated my card info on KS. Will you be using that card, or the one used to pay the initial fund raiser?

      Love that movie!

      A great creature feature...and a great date movie (at least my date enjoyed it)!

      I'm reminded of a movie called _The Relic_, starring Tom Sizemore.

      I hope those monsters are securely contained so that they can't escape the ship!
