This is a very exciting announcement, Death Wish is now fully funded on Kickstarter for £21,248! Not only did it reach funding, we unlocked all stretch goals and over doubled our funding goal (over 210% funded). I’m absolutely stoked at the response the project has received over the course of the 35 day campaign. It really has been a roller coaster ride. I’m very much looking forward to continuing the project’s journey and getting this game in front of my backers.
Pre-order Death Wish
If you missed out on the campaign, there is still an opportunity for you to pre-order the game. I am still allowing requests to pledge for the exclusive Kickstarter edition of Death Wish, all you need to do is head over the the Buy page and enter your email address. I will then be in touch later with more information and the options available for pre-order.
Unlocked Stretch Goals
- 12K – Death certificate
- 14K – 15 extra symptoms
- 16K – Linen upgrade (a favourite)
- 18K – Box upgrade (introduced later due to campaign’s success)
New NSFW Addon Reward
During the campaign, I introduced a brand new reward level that included a backer contributed NSFW addon which has been highly popular, with most backers opting to pledge/upgrade for rewards with this addition. The addon will be 100% backer contributed with the intend of expanding the variety in the game with some very deliberate NSFW content! All backers will soon have the opportunity to submit their disease, afflicter and symptom ideas via a submission survey.
What happens from here?
At the moment, it’s down to Kickstarter to collate the funds and then release them in about a week from now. From then, I will have an accurate understanding of final numbers so I can pass this into the manufacturers. In addition, I will need to send a survey to my backers to gather key information such as shipping address and also the details of any custom cards and addon submissions.
There will also be a final phase of design, requiring that I apply any final amends to the core game, create the addon and also the custom disease cards. I will also need to finalise the box designs for both the game and addon, working closely with the manufacturer to ensure they meet their standards.
I will be updating backers throughout the process so they know exactly where the project is and that we’re meeting milestones, with final fulfilment scheduled for January 2017. I’m very much looking forward to receiving my first proofs of the game!
