Kickstarter: Update #13

Less Than 3 Days Left!

Hey everyone, thanks to you we're doing great!  We've blown past $70K, $75K, and $80K!  So we're doing Attachments, with free ones given out to all our backers, we're adding the flying animations to your AngelCat avatars, and we'll be doing all the Web Community Package features, and everybody gets a Flooki avatar!

We're very excited about these, but there's still time to hit a couple more. So now more than ever, tell all your friends and post our link to all your social networks, twitter, etc!  We're already partway to $85,000, where Group Packages get their own group chat channel, custom group member desctag, and more. At $90,000 we unlock our Creators Tools package. I know that with your help, we can get there. Could we even reach $100,000 for our Super Bonus Package of exciting new features? Kickstarter projects often get a surge at the end, so it's possible!

Remember, we're at http://tinyurl.com/dreaming2 - spread the word! Remember, this only runs through friday morning! Watch here and on our Forums and in Furcadia for more updates the next couple of days, including more live video streaming sessions with me, Dr. Cat, and other team members! Thanks again for all your support and kind words - knowing how much you all have enjoyed our work over the years is our greatest reward for doing this.

Warm Regards,

   -- Felorin

Kickstarter: Update #6

Free Turkey achieved, more bonuses ahead!

Woot, we got there! We knew you guys could do it! We made our goal of $50,000 by the end of Sunday, so every backer is getting the free Turkey avatar once our Kickstarter is complete!

We have other goals to shoot for now, with no time limits. Once we reach our base funding at $55,000, we will add 5 Golden DragonScales to every reward level up through the $50 level. Better still, backers at our $75 ArchangelCat and above get an extra 15 Golden DragonScales! This is to thank everyone for getting us funded, and you'll receive these in December.

After that, it's important to keep going to hit stretch goals, so we can add more features. Our first one is at $60,000 where we'll add a new and improved Furrabian Nights! We've got a free noble human avatar if we get there. After that there's a free attachment, and more treasures to come! Keep checking our Kickstarter page for new reward postings!

We now have links available for our upcoming live Q&A sessions with Furcadia co-founder Dr. Cat. Wednesday at 2 PM CST is the Ask Me Anything on Reddit, at http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/. Video streaming on Twitch TV is Saturday, 3PM CST onward at http://www.twitch.tv/topwizard.

Our other Furcadia co-founder, Talzhemir, is hard at work on the Second Dreaming art print. We've attached the first concept sketch below!

 Finally remember, if you still need to send us your character name for your AngelCat desctag and Playtester forum access, please read Update #1 for instructions!

Kickstarter: Update #12

Celebration party and shooting for attachments!!

Hey everyone! We're planning a big all-day party on December 15th to celebrate our successful Kickstarter, and also we'll be celebrating Furcadia's 16th Birthday a day early at the same time! Everyone is invited, so make sure to log on that Saturday!

We're getting close to one of our major stretch goals, where we'll add Attachment support to Furcadia! This will add all sorts of options for customizing your avatars, and even mixing and matching pieces. To help us get there, until we reach $70K we'll be giving out a lifetime Awesome desctag to everyone who either makes a new pledge of $50 or up or who adds $50 to an existing pledge.

Once we get there, everybody at the $5 and above level gets free Antlers to use as their first Attachment, and everyone at our $75 ArchangelCat and above gets the Antlers, a hat, and a handheld item to be named later. So tell all your friends, and please share our Kickstarter link on your Facebook and Twitter!

Watch for more Live Streaming events in the next week from Majas and Nijumi, and possibly also from Kashi Commodore and Dr. Cat (hey that’s me!) Those will be announced as we get specific dates worked out.  

Thanks again for all your support and good wishes!

Warm regards,

   Dr. Cat / Felorin

Kickstarter: Update #11

Bloopers Video!

Hi all!

We are doing great and well on the way to that attachments update! Majas has finished putting together this hilarious bloopers video! Please do share it all around and let's take it viral! We should get something for making fools of ourselves! ;)

Cat's streaming event went really well yesterday and we've made it to 65k. That means everyone ArchangelCat and above now get an animated portrait space added to all the other lovely prizes!

Our next goal is Attachments! This means wings, hats, horns, masks, tusks, pawhelds, capes, ears, tails and so much more on all the avatars! Backers will even get free ones to start out with! Everyone Cookie collector and above will get antlers! ArchangelCat and above will get a few other things as well! Be sure to check out all the new Extra Treasure on the Kickstarter page!

If you missed it before, be sure to watch and share the Community Video! This is hugely awesome and heartwarming. So many of you are in this video telling what Furcadia is about and sharing what Furcadia has done to help you! You can see full videos here too! 

Poor Cironir is still busy hand adding everyone's AngelCat desctags! If you have not sent him your information please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and tell in the email the name you pledged as, how much total you spent, what your Furcadia name is, what packages go on which characters and if you earned any special prizes. If you upped your pledge be sure to email again and tell him what new rewards you want! If there's any issues, you can talk to him in Furcadia, as well. :)

Everyone else has been very busy working the Kickstarter stuff! Farrier is working more on the web client. We've all been doing a lot of community stuff with contests, snow, winter fest, Kickstarters events, etc! I will give a more detailed report sometime this week. Cat, Gar and I will be driving to Texas next week to visit the DEP office and go to my daughter's college graduation. We will still be connecting from the road to keep track of everything and keep the company running!

Thank you all so very much for your support. As always this is a community project, just as Furcadia is all about the community!

Lots of love,

Emmie

Kickstarter: Update #4

Thanksgiving Incentives!

Happy Thanksgiving! We are very thankful to all of you for supporting The Second Dreaming! :)

 
We’ve been doing a lot of incentives in Furcadia for people that help us meet smaller goals. We wanted to be sure to let everyone take advantage of these extra prizes! We currently have two of promotions going!
 
First, if we can make our goal of 50k by the end of the weekend we will give all of our backers a Turkey Seasonal Avatar! So be sure to tell everyone you know about what we are trying to accomplish with Furcadia and help us get more backers!
 
However, as an extra special incentive for today, everyone who donates at least $5 before the end of the day will get a Portrait Space to put their favorite portrait in! That works for both new backers and those who increase their pledges.
 

Thanks again for all of your support! Together we will make big dreams a reality! <3

Kickstarter: Update #10

Lots of Good News!

We hit our $60,000 stretch goal tonight! We've upgraded the additional rewards we promised, at both levels. This means everybody from Cookie Collector on up gets a one year Noble Hyooman avatar, or at ArchangelCat or above you get the Noble Hyooman for life! For the stretch goal, we'll be putting in a new Lighting Layer feature for both the Windows and Web clients that you can use in YOUR dreams! Plus we’re adding a new Furrabian Nights dream that uses the lighting effects.

Help us get to $65,000, and every ArchangelCat and above will get a free animated portrait space added in! Then at $70,000 we add the much anticipated Attachments feature to the game. (Plus one free attachment at Cookie Collector and above, or three free ones at ArchangelCat & up!)  Remember you can increase pledge levels if you want the ArchangelCat level rewards or any other goodies, just click the blue Manage My Pledge button.

But wait, there's more! Dr. Cat will be doing live video streaming Saturday at 3PM Furcadia Standard Time (same as CST), you can view that at http://twitch.tv/topwizard. And on Sunday, Majas will be streaming again as she works on the AngelCat avatar some more! That's at http://www.twitch.tv/maijahs/.

Our outtakes & bloopers video is almost ready, watch for that to be posted on our Kickstarter page soon!  It's looking pretty good so far. Watch and discover the ultimate fate of the muffin with the cherry on top!

Kickstarter: Update #3

Just wanted to let you all know that work's coming along great on our second video for the Kickstarter page, full of clips from members of the community talking about "What Furcadia Means to Me".  It's looking really good & we hope to get it finished and posted on the page soon for you all to enjoy.

Also, we've gotten a lot of your emails processed & turned on AngelCat desctags and Playtester forum access for many of you. If your character name is listed on our backers page here then you should see the AngelCat in your description in Furcadia, and you should be able to access the Forum. If you emailed in your info by Friday and still don't see your name on that list, please drop us another note. Otherwise please bear with us as we get through the remaining emails - we're looking into automating things a bit, but we'll get to you soon in any case!

We're heading out for the evening to celebrate Emmie's birthday. I'm sure she'd love it if you gave her the "gift" of telling more friends about our Kickstarter, or posting on more sites and forums!  

We will try and get you some updates during this holiday week about the programming, art, and web development work that's already going on behind the scenes right now.  Happy Thanksgiving, hope you all are enjoying the turkey avatar we put in this weekend, and hopefully some of the real bird later this week!

A couple of quick links!

We've just posted an interview with Emerald Flame & Dr. Cat! A couple of our players won a Skype voice chat with us in a raffle, and decided to collect questions from the community to ask us. This is a heartwarming & insightful chat, and there's some great stuff at the end explaining just why it is we make & work on Furcadia. Click here to listen!

Also, if you missed Majas' first live art session working on the AngelCat avatar, highlights are available at this link. Some fun insight into how we do our work, and if you use Furcadia's art tools there's some handy tips and tricks in here too.

Kickstarter: Update #2

Playtester Forum and Angelcat Tags!

Our official Playtesters forum is now up! If your character name is showing on our AngelCats page at the $30 level or above, then you should be able to access our Kickstarter Backers Forum right now! We'll be posting interesting bits of development info and sneak peeks there.

IMPORTANT: Be sure and email us your character name(s) and other reward info, instructions are in our Update 1. (Click Updates on the Kickstarter page to read it.) If you’ve already emailed us and we haven’t got you set up yet, we will soon!

Also sometime tomorrow, everyone from $5 Cookie Collector on up will have their AngelCat desctag in the game, too! We hope you’ll enjoy these early rewards while you’re waiting for the rest!

Here’s some interesting info from our Dashboard. Can you guess what our top 5 most popular reward levels are so far? Well, in reverse order, they are:

5. Kitterdust Enchanter - the only magical power on our list, not surprising it's here.

4. AngelCat - a beautiful avatar you can only get through this Kickstarter.

3. Scholarly Scribe - the most affordable way to make a permanent part of the game.

2. PlayTester - we’re glad a lot of people wanted to get to see our work as it’s made!

And the number 1 most popular reward level is:

1. ArchangelCat! Our Kickstarter exclusive avatar gets the number 1 and 4 spots, and more people wanted to make sure they’d have it forever rather than just for a year. This is bound to be a valuable collector’s item, since however many there are in these 30 days, that’s it - there won’t be any more given out again!

One last tidbit of news - you can now reach our Kickstarter page at http://tinyurl.com/dreaming2 as well as the direct URL. Thanks again for your support, and we hope you have a great weekend!

A new target and new banners!

 

Hey everyone! We managed to hit the halfway point to our initial goal in just a day and a half! That's great, and we want to thank everyone for helping us get off to such a great start.

At this rate, we think we could hit our goal by the end of the weekend. If we do, we'll share the celebration with the whole community, by holding a Free Digo Day in Furcadia next week! That's where everybody can play all our premium avatars for free for the whole day, and they're always a lot of fun. Spread the word, and help us get there by midnight PST on Sunday!

We also have some new images to share. Gar's been hard at work setting up banners, and you're welcome to use any of them if you want to have a link from your web page. There is also a Facebook Cover image there, several of us here are already using it for our personal Facebook pages. Check them all out at: http://www.furcadia.com/kickstarter/banners.php

We also sent out our Furcadia newsletter today, so we might be getting a lot more traffic here. As well as old friends who've been away for a while dropping back into Furcadia. So watch for 'em, and say Hi so they know Furcadia's as welcoming a community as ever!
