Woops, the Kickstarter is Live!

January 28, 2021 by Tim

So I am a massive dumbass, and accidentally launched the Kickstarter campaign for the new book collections. They approved it, and I thought I was setting up a pre-launch landing page, and suddenly… the whole thing was live.

I was going to spend the next week talking about all of the work I’d put into these books, etc and hyping them up for an early February launch date, and now I’ve put the cart in front of the horse. I’m in full on panic mode, but it is what it is; the campaign is live, it explains what each book is, and what to expect, so we’ll see what happens.

There is an early bird discount for supporting all three books, which I had wanted to give ample notice about, so we’ll see how that goes. You can find the link to the campaign here. I love that I get to do the work that I do, and while I produce comics no matter what, putting them into actual books has always been really special for me. I’m hoping that my work is something you’d like to own in book-form, and if so your help in getting these made would be massively appreciated.

I mean… a surprise attack is usually a great strategic choice to begin a campaign, so… deftly executed ambush Tim!

(See, it’s all about how you spin it!)

Yay! I’m glad of the early drop since that means I was able to grab one of the early bird bundles. Now I and my eldest son will be looking forward to September.

Do you have any PDF only versions? Would love to back and as much as I like hard covers I just can’t do physical books anymore

It is completely ok if you want to cancel the KS. Just put a note at the top of the KS page explaining what happened and ask people to look for it in the next week or two. I have seen other creators do it.

Well that escalated quickly. I refreshed the page late at night and saw the kickstarter announcement. Went in saw 445/500 of the earlybird backers tier and thought why not. By the time I’d finished backing 20 more were gone. I think the chances of this missing its goal are nill.

Is there an option to buy two out of three with one pledge? To be honest, I’m not much of a fan of Starcaster, and would prefer to back Analog and D-Pad, Volume One and Ctrl+Alt+Del 2.0, Volume One with one pledge.

Managed to get my hands on Early(ish) Bird set, it will be fine addition to your previously released books. There are US$ 36,505 on this kickstarter at this time. So allow me to congratulate you to successful campaign.

And the early birds are already gone… well good thing the Early(ish) aren’t that much more expensive. Any reason why the early birds were limited so heavily? (I mean you had to know they would sell out really quickly)

Hey there! I’ve just ran into this page as I was googling something else and… I found this as a result and it made me laugh and feel less stupid. I have accidentally launched a Kickstarter campaign as well and in the exact same way you did. I did panicked too. I’m not into comics or anything, but I do like what I see here and most of all, you made me feel less alone. You really never know how a little thing can positively impact someone else. I hope my little back helps you funding your project! Cheers from… Read more »

They are fantastic games! Just zero fun to play after like…. 30 minutes. (and yes, I have played more than 30 minutes. It is the only game my two brothers play, and it helps us keep in contact)
