The Kickstarter: Funded and Beyond!
It took just under five hours to fully fund the essential physical copy of the Wildsea, and in the five days since we’ve reached just over 350% of our funding goal, with more than a thousand backers. It probably doesn’t need to be said, but we’re definitely going to say it anyway – we’re incredibly excited, thrilled and honoured that so many of you have thrown your support and belief into the Wildsea. Thank you all, so very much.
We’ve made an update on the kickstarter talking about our plans for the future in more detail, but I’ll reiterate them here – we’re going to add a few more interesting pieces of content (one of which was funded this morning), but nothing huge and time-consuming. We want the Wildsea to get to you on time and in full.
The Quickstart: Soon to be Expanded
We’ve had a massive amount of feedback on the Free Wildsea Quickstart, and it’s pretty clear that we wouldn’t have achieved the level of funding we have so far if we’d been more secretive with our plans, art and materials. To keep up the theme of openness we’ll be releasing a new, expanded version of the Quickstart at the end of the Kickstarter backing period in celebration, a pdf sturdy enough for you to take a crew through an entire campaign atop the rustling waves.
This new Quickstart will be made available to Kickstarter backers, but also to members of the Discord – there are individuals out there who, though they can’t support us monetarily, have played games, spread the word and participated in making our little community a bright and vibrant place.
If you want access to the Quickstart update when it releases but can’t afford to back the project, Discord is the way to go.
My Thanks: Boundless
Really, we couldn’t have done this without you. Whether you’ve backed or not, played or not, ever said a word to any of us or even just skimmed this over a cup of coffee, thank you. I’ll close this out now and get back to writing – a lot is already done, but we’re far from finished.
Look forward to good things. I am.
Additional Note: As I write this, England is crashing quickly toward another month-long quarantine. We’re lucky enough, and decentralized enough, that this doesn’t have much of an effect on the production of the Wildsea, but it’s definitely a stark reminder that outside forces can change your circumstances extremely quickly.
Stay safe, people.
