Project Update: The bonus sticker sheet, and an update on rewards!

Hello hello again everyone!

Did you know that getting a bunch of rewards manufactured and shipped to you takes a while? Weird

I just got three boxes full of other boxes to put rewards in, a label printer and labels to ship things out, and the enamel pins have been approved and are moving to manufacturing! Once we're close to ready to start actually shipping out the rewards, I'll get the survey sorted and sent out to everyone - that's where you'll enter your address information and pay for shipping.

In the meantime - check it out! The bonus stickers by kokuhaku are finished!



Since there are only three chibi characters this time around, there was a bunch of extra room on the sticker sheet. I could have made it smaller, but it wouldn't have made printing them that much cheaper, so instead I decided to fill the empty space with little bonus stickers - included are stickers for the Petal Crash 2 and original Petal Crash logos, the Friend & Fairy logo, and little mini-stickers of each character's little pixelated head that's used for the battle bar. The new chibi stickers are the same size and style as the originals from the first crowdfund campaign, so they can be used all together! Get the whole gang together!

You might notice that Libbie's design differs a bit from her appearance in the first Petal Crash! When I first adapted Libbie to the Petal Crash style, I was primarily going off her original design appearance - she was very geometric and abstract.

Libbie's original design.


I also mistook the white patterns on her feet for empty space and gave her heels when she didn't have any before. Oops.

This time around, I'm basing Libbie's design on a later illustration of Tyson Tan's for a "liberated Libbie", which makes her less icon-like and gives her a more detailed and organic appearance.



Her more detailed outfit will suit Petal Crash 2's new, expanded art style, and offer a lot more options for variety in character palettes! Libbie was so monochrome in Petal Crash Online, so having the ability to give different color options for her coat, dress, tie, hair, and other bits will open up a lot of possibilities.

I'm almost ready to show off some actual physical goods, and I'm so excited to do it! I can't wait to hold a handful of little metal Lilibris and start sorting them out to send to you all. Thanks again for supporting the future of Petal Crash!

Edit
We did it! I've started ordering merchandise and making preparations. I will be talking to Daniel about next steps soon and we will organise the full orchestra. Thank you so much to everyone who pledged, we couldn't be here today without the community support, and this means a lot to us, genuinely. We are very lucky and privileged to have a community that believes in us this strongly. 

I'm working through the pledge manager right now and ill be able to send our surveys and start sending our the Barnaby chase demos. Please give me a day or so to figure out the pledge manager. They have a great system for sending it all out automatically but it will take a bit to wrap my head around it.

Hey everyone! We're currently sitting at £115,000 collected due to failed payments and some people accidentally backing the NPC tier. It's quite a bit lower than the originally expected £169k. We want to start making plans for recording location and start booking things, so if you are having issues with payment going through please check with your bank.

We also now have a shop option, if you are struggling try here instead! We have enamel pins and lots of goodies. 

Surveys will be sent out 25th April. We've been recommended to wait 2 weeks to let people fix their payments and pledges. After the 24th payment will be locked and we will receive a backer report. After that we will send out surveys to get all your information and start shipping out the digital goods. Physical goods will come around September time. 

Some digital goods, like the instruction manual, sheet music, and mini documentary will come later once the game is out (to avoid spoilers, and also we need to make the actual documentary whilst recording the orchestra)

Hey everyone! Just a shout out to make sure you check your banks to authorise the payments. Right now we're missing so much money that we are only at £113k BELOW the orchestra original goal completely. Contact [email protected]

We also had someone accidentally take an NPC tier, so if you are interested in the tier please email me at [email protected] to nab the slot yourself!

I am currently working through the survey questions and doing prep to send you your digital rewards (most people are asking about Barnaby's chase).

I have to wait 2 weeks for a pledge report to be made, I know a couple of people have had issues with payment already. I'm unsure if I'm able to send digital rewards until that has all cleared? Then I can see who has and hasn't paid for their reward.

If you are experiencing issues with payment please contact backerkit:

Reach out to [email protected], noting the email you used to set up your account.

Assuming the dragon we've seen fighting as part of a tutorial level in some of the trailers can be fought for real, is there any chance we could somehow access a wieldable shoe during the fight as an easter egg? If the game's going to have achievements, beating the dragon using only the shoe could be a real fun one.

Foreign charge declined so I fixed it right away. I have been successfully charged but the survey section says I have pledged $0? Is this a glitch or a problem and how do I fix this? Backerkit's support section has not been very helpful.

Someone backed out of the NPC slot leaving it open! If you want your character fully animated in 3D, plus all the physical merch from both our 2020 Kickstarter and Backerkit, nab it now! It did bring us below the stretch goal but im sure we will hit it again soon!
