Snow Bunnies and Stretch Goals
As promised, a picture of Mercilia's regular snow apparel. With the funds this Kickstarter helped raise, I'll be able to draw several outfits that are much more fitting for the environment and the setting. As well as all sorts of other cute (cool) things!
Other than that I've given a lot of thought to recent requests for other stretch goals. A lot of them are about voice acting(a lot). I'm not against voice acting, but when I estimated the cost, I was looking at $30k total just in actor fees. Let alone editing and implementing these voices to every line of dialogue with the proper timing and length.
The alternative is to only voice certain parts of the game. For instance, the prologue opening, and key events at the end. This means just auditioning two voice actresses for Mercilia and Seriva.
This is doable, so for the people who're interested I'm going to add a few new stretch goals, effective immediately. (I'll add them to the main page once the graphics are finished)
- PDF of the final Script
- A special PDF booklet that features special notes about the main and side characters of Dizzy Hearts. Including the Queen, her daughters (Mercilia's sisters), about Nail's upbringing Irraere's history and Aunyrae's teaching, and other story elements that can't make it into the game.
- Irraere's Library is a chibi tumblr comic series that I will update through the development of Dizzy Hearts and afterwards. Irraere's Library will feature several things about Dizzy Hearts that are are unfit for the Compendium or Booklet, these are mostly things about elf biology, ecology, funny skits, and reader question and answer. It will be different from a "Ask X" type tumblr, because I will be picking questions that are interesting to me to answer.

$11000 Limited Voice Action for Important Scenes
Key scenes throughout the game will feature limited voice acting by a voice actor chosen for Mercilia and Seriva. The opening scene and ending scenes especially, and other scenes important enough for voice acting.
