The Intermission Shuffle (Kickstarter Update)

January 17th, 2016
GameWick News, Kickstarter

Our Shuffling Horror Shuffle Board campaign has ended: we did not fund, but we did not fail. Over the course of our 28 day campaign, over 100 backers joined our efforts. Each and every pledge kept this campaign moving forward. From the start, the Shuffle Board maintained its upward climb (right up until the clock struck midnight on its final day). We ended close to one third of our 18k goal.

A pretty amazing accomplishment for GameWick Games’ very first kickstarter campaign.

Blog-Pic-SHB-IntermissionSince its launch in late December, I’ve joked that the project was my full time job before and after my regular full time job. It was a lot of work, but not at all unexpected. There was never a lack of things to think about, plan out, and dwell upon. And there were a LOT of lessons learned along the way. The feedback I received on forums and the direct messages of our backers was very helpful, too.

One huge benefit in launching this kickstarter was that, once live, it forced me to get all the production details set and ready to roll. The plan was to deliver the Shuffle Board and all rewards within two months after funding. With the final proofs and the token samples behind me now, I’m even more prepared than before.

Alas, funding just wasn’t in the cards this time.

In film speak, this is not “The End”. We will just call this “The Intermission”. Time to head out to the lobby, grab some popcorn, and get ready for what’s next. There will be some exciting relaunch news coming soon.

I want to close by saying “Thank You” to all of our friends and fans who backed our efforts; your support has encouraged this quirky little indy game company onward. Good things are coming.

Keep on shuffling!
