Since we embarked on this quest in November 2010, our BIGGEST step towards a release was taken today. Sean and I launched a Kickstarter campaign for Dashkin!
If you don’t already know, Kickstarter is a site through which ordinary folks like you and I can pledge a few dollars to help fund an artistic project. It’s an all-or-nothing deal though. If our funding goal isn’t reached by the set date, no money changes hands.
(See this Kickstarter Basics FAQ)
(Also, how pledging works)
So we’re offering rewards to our backers, people (like you!) who pledge whatever amount they wish to help us fund our project. Depending on how much you wish to pledge, rewards vary:
- “Special Thanks” credits in the game
- Downloadable prints
- Bitey plushies (hand made by MoriChax!)
- One-off original Bitey drawings (by me!)
- Downloadable Brackenwood music packs
- Bitey t-shirts
- One-of-a-kind life-like Bitey mask (hand made by me!)
- Limited edition wooden Dashkin figurines (hand carved and numbered by me!)
- “Brackenwood Wildlife” collector cards.. the list goes on.
oh look! Here’s one now:
This is essentially the proper serious clever version of what I did on Waterlollies. I offered a “special thanks” credit at the end of the movie for people who made Brackenwood donations. Even today, looking at the huge list of names at the end of Waterlollies, it’s plain to see the outpouring of support, for which I was not prepared and am forever grateful.
If you’re interested in helping us out, stamping your name on the Dashkin game or taking away a little piece of Dashkin memorabilia, first of all, THANK YOU! (I smile-scream and squeeze you). Next, head over to our Kickstarter project right now and check it out, particularly the backer rewards in the right-hand column. Most importantly, if you tell your friends and help us spread the word, Bitey and I will visit you in your dreams.. and this time it won’t be a nightmare.
