Tl;dr: Sci Fi Concept Cards Kickstarter launches tomorrow.
‘Twas the night before Kickstarter, when all thro’ the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The cards had been written on the computer with care,
In hopes that St. Kickstarter soon would be there;
The creators were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads
Well it’d be nice, wouldn’t it? Not gonna happen though. We’ll be tweaking the page and trying to improve things right up until launch.
It’s akin to stage fright.
But that’s okay. Some things are scary and they’re still worth doing, This is one of those things.
We launch tomorrow at about 4pm (give or take a few minutes for last second typo spotting). This time we are offering three decks of Concept Cards, science fiction ones.
- Characters – people from all over the galaxy
- Locations – places you might find on a space station or a city on another planet
- Planets – worlds scattered through the cosmos
Our first Kickstarter, about four years ago now for the first set of concept cards (called Character Cards back then because we didn’t know there would be more of them) was funded in a day, an our best was funded in four hours and ha taken more than twice its original target in a day – It would be wonderful to beat that!
To facilitate that, we’d love it if you would do a couple of things for us:
- First go to the Kickstarter preview page and click the “❤ Notify me on launch” button near the top on the left. Take a sneaky look at the page while you’re there, and then on launch day try find what we changed.
- Second: Spread this blog post, or any of our other social media posts (Facebook / Twitter) you see to anyone you think might be interested.
The faster the total rises at the start the more prominently Kickstarter will display the project meaning more people will see it, meaning a higher total and more people get to enjoy our work. A higher total means more stretch goals and a better product for you – and helps us stay in business to make more products in future.
So I’m off to tweak the page some more – you’ll have to do the dreaming of sugarplums!
