One Week to Complete the Survey
4 months ago – Tue, Feb 05, 2019 at 01:00:30 AM

Hiya backers!

Most of you have finished your surveys, and many have also picked some add-ons, which we are excited to start working on in the next few months. Thank you for doing that on time, it makes our work backstage so much easier. 

About 44 of you still haven't completed the surveys - please do so, as in a week, we're locking the orders! If you experience any issues, please contact BackerKit's support, or let us know through comments or email.

(You'll still be able to change shipping addresses, if needed.)

Know anyone who wants to pre-order the book? Now's the time to point them here.


Where Are We Now? January Edition
4 months ago – Thu, Jan 24, 2019 at 02:33:17 PM

Backers of the world, greetings!

I'm happy to say that the book's schedule is currently on track. We'd like to give you a sample of the stuff we've been doing for the past few weeks and will continue on doing for the foreseeable future, so here's the new Crystal format, featuring a Seasoned Crystal (It's displayed as an image because Kickstarter doesn't allow for some of the formatting). 

So slick!
So slick!

And here's a sketch of the cover page for the Crystals and Hearts chapter, featuring our iconic Toho trying to capture a Crystal before subduing its manifestation, not a great idea.

Not so slick.
Not so slick.

18 Days to Finish Your Surveys

The 11% of backers who haven't done so yet, please check your emails or go here to finish your surveys. In a little more than two weeks we're going to lock the orders, and also charge anyone who added additional add-ons (which is a lot of you, that Action & Adventure Deck is super popular).

Non-backers, if you'd like to pre-order the book, you can do so through the shop

Talk to y'all in our next update! Which will probably have something to do with playtesting. 

Surveys Sent, Late-backer Store Open
4 months ago – Fri, Jan 11, 2019 at 07:10:27 PM

Happy New Year everyone, it's time to fill out the surveys!

Backers, you should soon receive an email from BackerKit. You have a month to confirm your order, including any of the add-ons you've already paid for with your pledge. You can also purchase additional add-ons, for the same price we offered during the Kickstarter. 

PDF-only backers who want anything physical will need to also add the "Base shipment" option; it costs zero, and adds a shipping cost appropriate to your address at the confirmation screen. 

However... if you're a PDF-only backer, note that should you decide you'd like to get the physical book, it's cheaper to upgrade your pledge level to Seasoned than to add add-ons! The same can be said for the Fan Kit level, it's cheaper to upgrade than to get all the separate add-ons. You can change your pledge from the first page of the survey. 

Late-backer store is now open

The store is open, giving anyone who wasn't a part of the Kickstarter a chance to buy anything from the campaign, and at the same prices. For backers, it's better to use the surveys - but if you weren't a backer, or know of anyone who wanted to participate in the Kickstarter and missed their window, well, a new window is now open!

The surveys will remain open for the next month, on February 11th we'll lock the orders and charge credit cards. The store will remain open for some time after that. In any case, your shipping address can be updated, if need be, up until when we start the actual shipping, expected this Summer. 

Coming Soon: The post-Kickstarter Surveys
5 months ago – Fri, Jan 04, 2019 at 12:19:28 AM

Merry good year everyone! (Am I doing this right?)

Around next weekend (the 11th) we'll start sending out the post-Kickstarter survey emails. These will point you to our BackerKit store, where you can confirm your pledge and shipping address, as well as choose any add-ons you might have added to your pledge during the campaign, or add new ones. 

The store will also allow for "late backers", that is, people who didn't get in on the Kickstarter but still want to hop on. If that's you, or any person you know, you're welcome to join!

See you next update, when the store's up. 

It’s Done! Thank You All!

Two years ago, Crystal Heart was just a plan. We’re happy to say that thanks to you, thanks to the many yous, we can now turn that plan into an actual, playable, useable product.

We’ve worked hard and we’re immensely happy to see that it paid off, that we managed to earn your support in creating this new game. Because all of this work is going to turn into fun, for as many people as we can hopefully reach, starting with all of you folks.

We started this campaign pretty confident, despite the relatively high goal (compared to other first-timer indie publishers), thanks to the wonderful fans of our webcomic. We were hoping to get enough money to fund the best version of the book, and thanks to you, we can. We also wished we could do some cool stuff, like pay people to create new Crystal Heart tales, and get Bennies and some card decks, and you guys made so many of these happen.

What Happens Next?

We’re taking a short break to sum-up and re-calculate some numbers, and also because we’re tired. We’ll be back after the holidays, reinvigorated, and then we’ll send you by email the Backer Surveys, through which you’ll be able to confirm your shipping address, choose the add-ons you’ve calculated into your pledge, and buy additional ones.

In the coming months we’ll be looking for playtesters, and we’ll update you about our progress with the book and all the other things you’ve helped to make happen.

And let’s not forget: tomorrow there’s a new Crystal Heart page. The webcomic that started it all still has a long way to go… and there’s still much to be discovered.

See you in 2019, and thank you all for backing our game!
