Drew, our awesome designer, will be making t-shirts for a backer reward, and here’s a sneak peek of his design. It’s only a rough draft at this point, but you get the idea. It’s going to be sweet!
We’re aiming to launch the campaign on March 25, and there will be some special limited backer rewards, so be ready to pledge. Make sure to keep an eye on the blog, the podcast, Facebook, and Twitter for more details!
This week we’re happy to finally have an announcement, and it’s a big one! We’re preparing to launch a Kickstarter! There were some details posted on the blog prior to this show but we’re talking about it as our third topic today so stay tuned for details.
Things may have seemed a bit slow around here lately, but we’re busy behind the scenes getting things ready for some big changes coming in the summer. We’ve got a lot of ideas and we just need the resources to do the work, so we are going to be running a Kickstarter!
We will be releasing more details soon, but the basic plan is to take the awesome core that is Obsidian Portal and reskin and reshape it to be a much friendlier and sexier modern website. I know that redesign can be a scary word to a lot of people, but trust us that we want Obsidian Portal to not just look better but also work better.
Stay tuned for more details, and the actual campaign should be launching within a few weeks!
