Find It & Bind It’s Kickstarter a Success!

We’re funded. And we did it with 272% of our goal.

We thanked our backers on Kickstarter and are thanking them again here. We’re also pleased that we’ll have more than a handful of games to donate to Toys For Tots and the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation.

From here, it’ll take 2-3 weeks to get the funds which puts us in mid-April.

In the meantime, we’re contacting vendors to see what we might be able to do now that we have “proven” cash-in-hand and if we can swing a deal better than what we already have planned, we’ll announce the project plan and go into the details with backers by Monday, 4/23/15.

One last thing, we were working toward earning that 2nd Dispel Magic Spell Card based on getting to 100 FB Likes and 700 Twitter Followers. Well, we got to 146 FB Likes and 695 followers so… we’re going to include it anyway.

Dispel Magic is awesome. 🙂

Just wanted to briefly post about our decision to include the Glenda, The Good Witch reward tier on Find It & Bind It’s kickstarter.

Without getting into the nitty gritty, Phil has a background where at ~10 years old he became a ward of New York State and, while in foster care or group homes, was often the recipient of donated toys for “Boy Age 8+,”  “Boy/Girl Teen,” and so on.

As a result, we thought it would be a nice gesture to pay it forward and also provide a “toy” that could be something a bit more than a thing–a game that could provide a repeatable experience that would last a bit longer than the current action figure, etc.

We hope to be able to give as many games as possible for this and other reasons.

Thank you to everyone who has supported at the Glenda, The Good Witch reward tier and for all those who may have added an extra game with the intention of donating it as well.

And thank you again for all the support that has been shown.

Find It & Bind It @ PAX East

Yes. Phil will be there showing off the game on Friday AM and Saturday PM in the Unpub area, officially. Unofficially, he’ll be around for the entire weekend showing off the game.

He’ll also be participating in 2 panels with other Boston Game Makers Guild members on Friday afternoon:

  1. 3:30pm: Birthing your Game
  2. 6:00pm: Giving & Receiving Feedback

Check out the panels and the game!
