Unknown Realm March Update!
It's time for a quick monthly update about the game and our progress...
First up this month, we have a few press clippings to share:
- Our interview with Game Raven came out earlier this month, if you haven't read it already you can check it out here.
- We are setting trends you guys! Some of you may not be familiar with Jamey Stegmaier and the Stonemaier Games website, but those who are will probably appreciate how excited we were when we discovered that Jamey included Unknown Realm in his newsletter last week about “5 Unique Tactics Used by Recent Crowdfunding Projects.” Over the years, we have learned so much from Jamey’s insights on Kickstarter. He is basically the go-to resource for crowdfunding wisdom, so we were thrilled to see that he liked the approach we took with Unknown Realm.
On the game dev front, things have been moving along nicely.
As you know, this game has a lot of custom made physical feelies that are being produced alongside the game itself. This includes 1600 wooden tavern dice that need to be manufactured for the collector's editions. Coordinating production and quality control of these items is more challenging that you'd expect, so we started on some of these items sooner rather than later. So far, we have about half of the custom engraved tavern dice completed and we expect the rest to be finished by May. We are also working closely with our manufacturers to begin production on several other physical feelies.
At the beginning of March, we had the pleasure of having dinner with Chris Huelsbeck while he was in San Francisco for GDC. It was so cool to meet him in person, unfortunately we forgot to take any pictures! Chris just sent us the first sample track for our soundtrack two days ago and it's going to be really exciting to start putting finished music into the game!
If you have in-game content with your pledge, we will be getting in touch with you when the time comes. A lot of those things are a bit further down the line in our development schedule, but don’t worry. We will be contacting you via email soon.
One final reminder – we will be having occasional prize drawings from our email list – so if you would like to be included, sign up on our website www.stirringdragon.games. We picked the first lucky winners earlier this month and we’ll be sending out their prizes soon.
As always, you can get in touch with us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by messaging us here on Kickstarter. These are the two best ways to contact us if you ever have questions.
Thank you all for your support, we will continue to post updates about once a month (as we mentioned in our January 21 update) or when there is important news to share.
Have a great month!
- Laura & Bruce
