      Sometimes, integrity is expensive. Stick with it.

      BTW, Two Minor Nitpicks…

      1 - "Devils & Black Sheep" doesn't really make me think of pirates at all. In fact, "Black Sheep" only makes me think of the Black Sheep Squadron, from WWII -- who, oddly enough, flew F-4 Corsairs. Hmmm... maybe something with the word "Corsairs?" Maybe "Corsairs of the Black Void." Eh, or not.

      2 - Isn't that pirate ship a bit too *clean*? More grunge and grime would help, and maybe some barely-patched battle damage. Plus, the pirate flag on the side looks like exactly that -- a flag, hung on the side of the ship. Shouldn't the skull logo just be painted directly on the hull?

      Like I said, just nitpicking...

      I can understand why they'd want to keep your name on everything, but doing so would be dishonest -- and presumably, the only way to keep everyone from *knowing* that they were lying would be to put some kind of clause in the contract, forbidding you from producing anything using your own name, or from giving away their deception.

      No matter how tempting that pile of money might have been, I would have rejected it too. Selling out a line of products is one thing; selling out my own name and *lying* to people is another thing entirely.

      TL;DR: I've spent seven months transferring manufacturing lines to China only to move them 4 years later back to the states, many other business did the same. Bottom line, if you care as much as I understand you do, please learn from others experience about China and stay away from there.

      Maybe Chinese printing could open up more possibilities, who knows. I think it would be worth looking into and you could definitely save yourself a lot of work in packaging / assembling.

      What's wrong with serial killer games? ;)

      Sounds good! I'l back it! I second Anthony with the concerns about Chinese production. They will add massive delays to your project. I've been there personally for business. Honestly, too, you can typically get better work done in the US with more consistency.

      I'm just disappointed that I'm not getting my game about donkey shows.

      This is the 5th KS you've created that I've backed. I understand that advantages of the move to Chinese manufacturing, but give it some serious thought. Much of the appeal of your projects to me is the home grown nature of it all. I like the cheap projects, prompt shipping, and charm of the components. I worry that if you switch to China, it will mean higher costs and significantly slower service. From my experience with other KS, games printed in China typically take eons longer than the quotes.

      On one hand I think you're crazy for not taking the deal. On the other hand, you just earned yourself a ton of respect from the community!

      That sounded like a pretty sweet deal right up until the part where they'd get to slap your name on stuff. Thanks for sharing, and maybe next time someone will offer you a ton of money without you having to hand over your integrity in return!
