March/April Backer Update
This past month was a mixed bag of progress but I’m happy to report that the past few weeks of heads down work has been fruitful.
Game Production Milestone Reached!
All of the production files for the core game and the kickstarter bonus items have been submitted and we’re about a week away from submitting all of the files for the Crane Wife expansion as well. We’ve made a milestone chart below so you can visualize the progress of getting the game into your hands.
Other Progress- Vinyl Record
Did you know we’re making a How To Play Illimat vinyl record? Colin Meloy finished the spoken word recording and it’s currently off to mastering. Sadly, we're having problems uploading our audio file to Kickstarter for you to sample it but will try to work around it it for an addendum update. If you are a backer- you can still add the record ( which comes with a digital download of the audio guide) on to your pledge by going to firstname.lastname@example.org
Illimat Road Tour- Coming to your town?
We’ve been giving lots of thought about how to best use our modest marketing budget and we’ve decided to embark on an August/Sept US road tour. We want to bring the Illimat mobile to your game cafe, company, museum, or fun festival to demo the game and give away prizes. If you run one of these establishments and would like to talk to us drop us a line at info (at) twogetherstudios (dot) com
Crane Wife Expansion- Change of Plans
We’ve changed our plan from our previous update and decided to print the Crane Wife expansion and the core game together. We learned that printing them separately increased our risk for issues with color matching on the cards and would elongate the overall pre production approval process. Will this delay delivery of the game? Most likely yes by at least a few weeks. We’ll know more once everything is approved for production and will keep you updated.
