Can you coax your chicken to the right gems in order to lay the most valuable egg?
Gem Hens challenges you to do just that. It's not so simple though as your opponents are also trying to make the best eggs and it's a chicken eat gems world out there.
Why back now?
Besides getting the sweet exclusive items that won't be available at retail, we also expect this game to retail for $40, so you're also saving a nice bit of gems right off the bat. Plus, making games is an expensive and time intensive process, having backers like you is the only way we are able to produce the amount of games we do. Lastly, by backing now and getting in early, you give us something even more valuable than your money, you give your word of mouth "advertising" of our games to your friends and family. If we've made a great game (and we always strive to do just that), then backing this helps us to truly "kickstart" this game's popularity as you play it, love it and tell people about it.
While we would love to offer free shipping, there really is no such thing. Shipping is really expensive and we have tried to come up with pricing that accurately reflects our cost to get the game into your hands without creating a logistical nightmare on our side. We expect that we'll have to come out of pocket a bit based on what we are charging and we are ok with that.
We will also be using non-trackable shipments in some cases in order to save on cost as tracking can add 30-50% or more in some cases. So please understand if we do not have tracking with your package we did so knowingly. Rest assured, that we will get you your game and any risk associated with a package not being trackable is on us.
For this campaign, we do not currently intend to use worldwide fulfilment companies, which is why it is not "friendly". However, since it is only a $29 game, most customs charges should be very low or will not apply (please do your research on this before you back). Everything will ship from our warehouse in the U.S. If we get enough backers, that might change (we will update if it does), but for now, assume that this will ship from the US.
Risks and challenges
As a publisher that has brought more than a dozen games to market (under Grey Fox Games) thus far, we feel confident in our ability to get this done. The gameplay for this game is 99% complete. The art and graphics are well underway. We are confident that we will hit our release goals with no problems, shipping delays or Acts of God notwithstanding. In addition we will not release this game to standard retail until all U.S backers orders have been shipped. Our goal is to have it in our backers hands 1-3 weeks before someone can buy it on Amazon.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
