Kickstarter Project Update #22: Póstumo - The Deck of the Dead

Project Update #22: Post-Póstumo Post

O and I have been spending the past 20 or so hours bouncing between levels of sheer gratitude, amazed joy, and pure exhaustion. People keep congratulating us on how we did, but honestly, we lost control of this project a long time ago. This was YOUR success, and you guys are incredible.

In the last 24 hours of the campaign, we took on 81 new backers and $3,654 of pledges. We got to 98.5% of our $40,000 stretch goal. Enough that you know what? That's close enough for us. We've officially unlocked the purple brain chips, and every backer will also be getting a 5x7 print of one of the various face or joker cards.

A reminder for what comes next: Some of you are already getting emails from me, asking to either clarify what your add-ons were or what amount of chips you needed. This is to help make sure our estimates are correct (which are currently at 2,800 decks, 2,304 dice and 8,700 poker chips).

For the rest: we'll get an exact clarification on your add-ons and your shipping address in February (maybe January), when we get closer to shipping everything out.
