Three years ago, I was preparing for my first Kickstarter campaign. I have learned so much about making games (and myself) since then!
Countdown: -2 days. Yikes! I forgot to announce here that the campaign is live.
Countdown: 12 days. Over the last week, I have fleshed out a lot of the content for the campaign page.
Countdown: 18 days. The project image and short blurb are incredibly important: these are all people see of your project when they browse on Kickstarter.
Countdown: 32 days. I mailed out preview copies today. It’s always a pleasure to work with Andrew Tullsen at Print & Play Productions to make these.
Countdown: 50 days. After Gen Con, I sketched out all the content for the campaign page to get an idea of what content I’ll need to write and graphics have created.
