Hi everyone, this is Leeanne, otherwise known as "Mongie"! I am the creator of the online comic "Let's Play." I just wanted to say thank you so much to all of the readers who have followed the series on LINE Webtoon and to any newcomers who are curious on what this is all about, you can learn more about my comic on the LINE Webtoon app, or from their website at Webtoons.com (letsplaycomic.com).
I've heard your requests for making Let's Play available in print, and this Kickstarter is meant to raise the money to get you the print edition for volume 1! So this is your chance to not only touch Let's Play, but also smell and taste it if you so desire!
The book will be professionally reformatted and printed, and this Kickstarter will have a bunch of excellent add-ons and stretch goals, that I couldn't get to you any other way! They're pretty awesome, and I'm hoping we reach those goals so I can have those things for myself too. (´▽`ʃƪ)♡
We talked long and hard about the tiers and stretch goals, and tried to create options for everyone. If there is something you want but don't see available, then please speak up!
ABOUT LET'S PLAY: She’s young, single and about to achieve her dream of creating incredible videogames. But then life throws her a one-two punch: a popular streamer gives her first game a scathing review. Even worse she finds out that same troublesome critic is now her new neighbor! A funny, sexy and all-too-real story about gaming, memes, and social anxiety. Come for the plot, stay for the doggo.
Let's Play is an ongoing webcomic on LINE Webtoon with over 1 million monthly readers. This is your chance to be the first to get your hands on the reformatted print edition of volume 1, which collects the first 23 chapters of Let's Play - approximately 120 pages of content - complete with behind the scenes designs, roughs, and interviews with the creator!
The goal of the Kickstarter is to get the comic reformatted for print and into your hands as quickly as possible! We'll be designing Kickstarter exclusive covers and the more we raise the more content goes in the book, the more stretch goals are unlocked, and the more add ons we can offer. The stretch goals and add ons are a secret until they've been hit. We'll reveal the stretch goal that's available to hit next, and when it unlocks we'll reveal the next one. Ditto with the add ons and we think everyone will be pleasantly surprised with each!
The other stretch goal we can tell you about now is in order to unlock volume 2 we're looking to hit 60k. That allows us to do all of the pre-production on reformatting and vendor work prior to the volume 2 Kickstarter. Meaning when that volume is Kickstarted, it will have already been sent to the printers and we'll have approved proofs back.
So, what am I getting for my pledge? First, all backers at the $24 Kickstarter Edition level will get the collected edition, printed at 5.7"x8.2" with a matte finish wrap around cover, exclusive to this campaign. Each page of the comic will be carefully reformatted to provide the same quality of reading experience many of you have already had online.
Risks and challenges
There is little risk in that this book is being published and the art has been completed. The team running the Kickstarter have worked with the vendors and printers before and have confidence in the quality and timeline we've outlined. However, during production mistakes can happen and some of the vendors are overseas. Should something not arrive in time or as expected we will quickly communicate that to all backers and let everyone know when to expect items should dates shift.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
