"Out of the Woods" - The Next Kickstarter!


Dear Backers,

Thank you SO MUCH for your support of Ozombie! While we didn't ultimately reach our goal, I really appreciate all the feedback and encouragement you all contributed. 

Now... I'm launching a new Kickstarter mid-July, 2017! And I'd love to have you all along right from the start.

"Out of the Woods" is a collection of ten famous fairy tales twisted into a card game, book, and collection of art prints.

This time around I've selected Bluebeard, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, 3 Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood, Little Mermaid, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, and Pied Piper. Some really incredible art and story is being developed as I write this post.

For the narrative theme, I’ve recently been thinking a lot about morality and behavioral development in a world less and less influenced by religion. While I myself am an atheist, I believe important life lessons must be passed to us by some method – religion, literature, and/or caregivers. This was the original purpose of fairy-tales – to scare children into acting morally and cautiously as they matured into adults.

Could a collection of classic fairy tales with a dark (re)-presentation serve to help parents convey life lessons, warnings, and common sense to their kids? Hell, I know a few adults, myself included, who could use a reminder of those lessons!

“Out of the Woods” contains a dual meaning in this context – one, that we’re never *really* out of the woods… in life, there’s always another Big Bad Wolf hiding along our paths. And that while we’re in the woods we must be prepared for the next wolf attack. Death is probably the only escape from the woods we’ll ever encounter – so best to be prepared for a life of tests and obstacles.

Will you join me in helping to shape the project and drive it to success? Let's go on a walk through the woods!

You can sign up for early bird specials, exclusive news, and involvement in the development process by visiting the "Out of the Woods" Facebook Page and signing up for the Mailing List.

Still want that Oz art?

We're preparing to shut down the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter PayPal store. On Monday, it will close and the Otherlands art will be counted and finalized, never to be available again.

However, by popular demand (did you guys start a petition?) I've added the best selling "OZombie" posters to the store.

If you're still hankering to get them, go go go! They'll only be available through Monday!

Head to BackerKit and sort by Oz. You'll find them all there.

End of the Rainbow

The Oz campaign has to end. There are two realities driving the decision.

First, we’re facing a challenge with the Alice film rights. Since working to remove it from the Oz campaign we've been unable to launch it as a separate campaign here on Kickstarter – the submission has been rejected multiple times and our appeals have failed (multiple campaigns are not allowed). To launch a campaign for the Alice films rights means we must first shut down the Oz campaign.

Second, we wouldn't consider shutting down the Oz campaign if it were trending towards success. As it is, we've reached 15% of our goal with 20 days left in the campaign. Projections suggest we’ll hit 30% of our goal by campaign end. I've been telling myself to remain optimistic and see this thing through – but when the reality of our funding trend is combined with the pressure of the Alice film rights situation...

For Oz, we can always launch another campaign in the future. On the other hand, the Alice film rights are only within reach during a rapidly closing window of opportunity. We’ll sacrifice Oz today in order to have a real chance with Alice.

For the record, we did also consider (and put work towards) an Alice campaign on IndieGoGo, but decided against this for two main reasons. The first is that we’re concerned about the amount of awareness we can generate on IndieGoGo, since we've never run a campaign there. Here on Kickstarter we have followers (you’re reading this). The other issue is we don’t want to be accused of ‘creating confusion’ or deal with any other negative interpretation that might come out of running two campaigns at the same time.

Ultimately, the route we’re taking is cleaner, faster and would seem to have a higher chance of success.

I sincerely appreciate all of the support and feedback you've provided us via the Oz campaign. It’s been an interesting ride and one that has taught me a multitude of valuable lessons. While we’re ending it early, we’re certainly not walking away empty handed. When Oz makes a return you can expect it to be better and stronger.

Now we turn our attention to Alice. Securing these film rights would be nothing short of a major coup. We’d control a significant portion of Alice’s future. Being able to produce animations, feature films and related merchandise means keeping Alice’s world fresh, no matter what else might happen with the game portion of the property. I hope you’ll join us in making this a reality. If you want to learn more, please visit:
