Wow, I have been totally floored this week by how many of you have completed your backer survey. As of this moment, 96% of you completed your survey in the past 7 days. That is really awesome and has given us the ability to get an accurate count of how many copies of Swamped to produce, and who to send the add-ons to.
I spent all of Friday morning just downloading and analyzing all of the survey data, but it has been really helpful information to have! If you added-on to your pledge for a copy of Antidote or Drop Site, we’ll be starting to pack these up and ship these out beginning next week!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about when I say “backer survey,” check out our last update here.
More good news: We’ve finished proofing all of the card files! Each of the cards has a unique combination of front and back artwork, and some late playtesting and editing has lead to several changes in some of the cards, but after many hours, these have finally been wrapped-up!
Still to go is the box artwork revisions and proofs, the print-ready rule book and the files for the Croc and Boat.
I’m also happy to announce we’ve narrowed the field of possible manufacturers down to one, with one other in reserve just in case. I’ll keep you posted on this and will let you know when we’ve signed-on with them.
Many, many of you also indicated in the survey that you’d be interested to receive a monthly newsletter from us about our other game projects and general info about what is going on at Bellwether Games. Thank you so much for your interest! It is very cool to know that you like what we are doing and it gives us encouragement to know you’d like to be included on future news.
If you noted you would like to receive the newsletter on the survey, please note we will be adding your email to the subscriber list in the next week or two. You can also find the newsletter subscription form here: http://bellwethergames.com/newsletter/
OK, I think that is enough for today! I look forward to talking to you again next week!
