One Stretch Goal Reached Another Revealed

Posted by Twogether Studios, LLC (Creator)

Dear Friends & Backers-

You did it. The Games + Music stretch goal has been unlocked! 

The Kickstarter edition of Illimat will now come with an exclusive ninth Luminary card: The Audience. This is only available to backers; you’ll get one copy with each copy of the game. Thanks to all of you who took part in this. Seeing your pictures has been a highlight of the campaign for us, and it’s also added a lot of new artists to the music playlists here at Illimat HQ. We’ll keep sharing what we’re playing and listening to, and we’d love to see more from all of you!

Today, we’re revealing the “?” goal

We’ve had amazing early success with Illimat and we have a little over two weeks left of our campaign. Our ultimate goal is to get to 10,000 backers. Why? The higher our initial print volume, the more we can give you. For example, we’d like to add additional pages to our instruction booklet to include more of Carson’s images, and the additional cost per unit is far lower if our print volume is higher. The more copies we make, the more enhancements we can add without impacting the retail price.

So our goal is to reach 10,000 backers… but we can’t do this without your help. Which brings us to the current stretch goal: we want to add a total of one thousand followers to Illimat across Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. This will help expand our reach to interested backers in the all-important last two weeks of the campaign. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Follow us on Instagram,Twitter or Like our Facebook page. If you already follow us on one social channel, feel free to follow us on a different one as well; each one counts towards our goal of one thousand. 
  • Share or Tweet to your friends and followers about Illimat. Ask them to help us unlock the next backer reward with a follow or a like. 
  • Tell us in the comments what you would like to see us post on social media. What you want to see more of or less of - we’re all ears. We want to make following us fun & worth it.

When we hit the goal of 1,000 additional followers across our social channels, we’ll add a cloth pouch to each backer copy of the game. This cloth pouch holds your luminary cards and Okus tokens while in the box and further adds a classic element to the game components.

So, follow, share and give feedback on what you’d love to see on our social media accounts. When we reach a combined total of 1,000 new followers this Kickstarter exclusive will be unlocked!

If you’re waiting for news on The Rumble, have no fear - it has been moved to November 2nd and will be more awesome than ever. And there’s more to come this week, including our Illimat deluxe edition, retailer levels, and a special surprise from Colin Meloy!

Thank you Backers & Friends,

Jenn & Keith

      Could you sing us a song to ask others to follow/kickstart that we might share? Maybe a quick run down of the game, and where to go to get in on it. Show off your beautiful game and beautiful band. I mean, I like hearing your songs daily, another one for fun would be awesome. I'm just being greedy is all.
