Update #3: Campaign & Art Updates
Hello everyone! How's it going?
For this update we want to inform you of the several campaign changes that we made:
1. Voice Acting Stretch Goal
Before our VA goal sits at 120,000 USD, only because we have no idea how much voice actors and actresses cost. Right now we're in contact with Rachael, a professional voice actress, and she's helping us in recruiting potential English actors for the game. She gave us some estimates, and basing from that, we decided to lower our VA goal to 40,000 USD! :) If you think voices would make The Letter even better, please spread the word out and help us reach this goal!
We're also extremely honored to have a couple of people telling us that they're willing to voice for free! To those guys, we haven't forgotten about you! Once we reach the VA goal, we'll reach out to you and let's see how we can do this together!
2. Reward Changes
We lowered the price for ✪ SENIOR DESIGNER ✪ tier. From 5,000 USD, it went down to 3,000 USD. We also added illustrated images of each tier reward, as well as T-shirt design mock-up, in the campaign! Check them out if you have the time!
3. Paypal Pledges
So far, our Kickstarter campaign has around 6,460 USD pledged, while in Paypal we have around 80 USD pledged from 3 backers. That's total of 6540 total pledges, and with 19 days to go, we're only at 20% of our funding goal. We need to work harder in promoting our game, and we need your support everyone! Please help us spread the word out to friends and other VN fans! =)
4. News Coverage
As we've mentioned in the previous updates, we've been hard at work in getting the word out, and we want to say thank you to the following sites that took time to write a coverage for us:
A lot of Youtubers are also posting videos about our demo, and we can't thank them enough! We featured some play-through videos in our campaign from 4 Youtubers, so please watch them! We wish we could post all of the videos made about The Letter's demo, but it's going to make the campaign very very very long XD
Regardless, we send our sincerest and warmest gratitude to everyone who supported The Letter, in one way or another!
Some art updates! Yay! Check them out below!
We'd like to give a shout-out to Agate Studio! Check out their game, Valthirian Arc: Red Covenant on Kickstarter! Their game looks really cool and cute, with all its wizardry and unique classes (Harlequin & Arc Draconus classes look bad-ass O///O!) The game is also set in a school! Please lend your support to them so they can bring an awesome JRPG game to the world!
That's all from us! Until the next update guys! Have a great day! :D
