Risks and challenges

This project doesn't have any risks to speak of if we meet our goal. The factory is ready to publish and the art and layout have been completed. Any additionally needed changes should be completed prior to the end of the campaign. At that time the game is done and ready for printing.

As a small gaming company, we frankly lack the funds to meet minimum printing requirements. Kickstarter allows us access to all of you. Your pledges make this project come to print.We hope to produce another quality product, delivered on time (or as reasonably close as possible).

Ultimately, we would like to be able to fund our projects without crowdfunding. With the help of Kickstarter and all of you great backers, we will bring Thwarted! A Game of Super-Villainy to life!
