The Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual Kickstarter drive is almost down to its last two weeks. After a sluggish fortnight, yesterday saw a big surge that pushed us up to 70% of the funding goal.
I don’t want to get all melodramatic, or hit you with some kind of hard sell. But that Kickstarter drive is going to mean a lot to the Thrilling Tales, and to me. If we don’t make the fundraising goal, though… nothing happens.
So if you like the idea of multiple-choicing your way through the retro future in The Toaster With TWO BRAINS, or just sitting back and enjoying the non-interactive illustrated adventures of the Clockwork Book stories….
Well, you can really help out. Either by becoming a Kickstarter backer, or by spreading the word about the Thrilling Tales and the funding drive.
If you’ve missed the trailer, view it here.
As I write, there’s less than $1000 of the $3200 goal left to go. That’s just ten backers at the $100 level (either the "Space Pirate" or "Space Patrolperson" levels, with prints or T-shirts, and books as rewards), or just twenty-two "Rocket Pilots" at $45, with signed copies of Trapped in the Tower of the Brain Thieves.
Or, you know, some other number of the other levels. I’ve kind of used up my arithmetic for the week.
The upshot is that there’s not that far to go – it’s just that there’s not a lot of time, either. So pledge if you can, and if you can’t, accost strangers on the street and get them to pledge. That’s what I do. And as soon as I make my bail, I’ll do it again!
