All about the spoons


I would like to again love to welcome our anon Village backer from our Kickstarter. Who I will call Cim. CIM is the acronym for her blog she co-runs called (Chronic Illness Memes) Cim is chronically ill and disabled and she is bed-ridden for most days. She wants to create a place in the game inspired by the spoon theory. I made a post about it previously in case you missed it here.

Now unfortunately people jump to conclusions without actually doing enough research on us. This is her idea not ours, as a result disabilities is going to play a larger role than previously planned. She is also a part of the development team and she’ll be working with us to design some spoonie characters. 

When it comes to disabilities in the game for now it will be represented mostly via NPCs and other content. Our game at its core, is a farming game with a lot of physical activities, running around, stamina management and so forth. To include disabilities (that can’t be simply role-played) for players, it would be more to difficult design properly and increase budget.

But before you dismiss us there are many other ways you can have a game include disabled characters via NPCs, quests, other game content. That’s where Cim and Cim community come into play. And we’re excited to work with her! Thanks soo much again :D

Character Furio

We did it guys! The Kickstarter was a success…. but that was only the easy part. Now we have a lot of work a head of us! I apologize for the lack of update immediately after our success but the team and I have been busy working on pre-production early so we can get a head start

SPECIAL THANKS to the team for working with me on my measly personal budget and using their spare time doing everything possible to get us this far.

SPECIAL THANKS
TO THESE LOVELIES FOR HELPING US PUSH OUR KICKSTARTER TO SUCCESS.

HellYeah HarvestMoon

And of course the countless blogs that reblogged and talked about us! Thank you so so much!

Even the people who told us we were going to fail, because that only makes us try harder! So thank you :) 

TASKS FOR THE IMMEDIATE WEEK.

- Refining the design document, with all the details we would like to have for the final version of the game.
- Organizing the features for the open beta release. 
- Organizing the budget
- Organizing the physical Kickstarter rewards

Keep in mind

1.
Our budget is still really really tiny! We currently cannot hire anyone else at this time.

2. We’re not taking anymore payments for Kickstarter pledges via paypal, as of now.

 3. Yes if you donated $15 or more then you will one of the first people on the server once we open it up. Including all future feature updates at no charge. 


GOAL FOR OCT 31st:
Get preparations for pre-production out of the way. 

Thank you again so much everyone!

5 more hours to go! THANK YOU SO SO MUCH EVERYONE FOR HELPING US GET THIS FAR. But this was the easy part, now the real challenge begins. 


What we are immediately doing in the next week

1.
Going over and planning the game development with the team
(Setting goals etc).

2.
Organizing our budget

3.
Start making plans to get the physical rewards organized.

What we are doing in the next month

1. Trying to cut our pre-production time in half so we can get the ball rolling and get a running start on our game dev schedule. 

2. Redoing the character model and texture from scratch again so it looks much more polished up. 

3. Working on a new style for our 2D character illustrations. We’re probably going to do a vote on the best one.

 
Thanks everyone stay tune for more updates :)

New stretch goal added with 19 hours left. We’re close to the first stretch goal. Due to popular demand poly-amorous relationships will be implemented but only if we reach that stretch goal. If not then it will not be planned until further notice.
Thanks guys, so close but it’s not over till it’s over anything can happen :)

Thank you guys soo much again for getting us funded!
We’ve already starting to make our plans to make the game.

I wanted to tell you a little more about our first stretch goal

Spoonie Island is an idea created by our Village seed backer who wishes to remain anonymous. She suffers from a chronic illness and she wanted to include some kind of awareness for people with disabilities on an island she gets to create with her tier. She gets to design some NPCs and shops. However we want to push it a bit further. If we reach our stretch goal we’re going to include a larger quest-line and adventure that revolve around that island that players can play through that ties into the game world. I hope in the last 24 hours we can push towards it. Thanks again. Head over to Kickstarter page last 39 hours


We’ve had a lot of questions however, leading up the end of the KS we’ve been swamped with handling updates and starting on the game ASAP. If you want your question to be answered sooner, PLEASE DO NOT ASK AS ANON. Priority is given to people who we can respond directly to via their username to instead of making a public post.

Pumpkin Online has almost reached their Kickstarter goal! Help them reach it for a more diverse game! http://kck.st/1yBr86Y

We be on the Kickstarter page like.

ABOUT BETA ACCESS

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Open Beta Access tiers. When you pledge either $15 or $20, it means you get first access to the game as well as all the updates for as long as they keep happening. Gold release means the game in it’s entirety as it was intended with all the features. So you don’t pay for the game again. The same is true if you get the tier with 2 accounts. I hope that clears that up. :)

Thank you so very very much you really helped us get this far but it’s not over yet!
