Thank you for an incredible campaign ❤️

This was an absolute blast, and I have loved the ride you took us all on this month. Our movie is an incredible b-movie masterpiece, and you've upgraded the expansion off the charts! Plus you helped make this my biggest campaign to date, in every way.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you for your support, encouragement, enthusiasm, and just for believing in this project and believing in us to bring it to life.

What's next?

Well, thanks to you, I now have over 100 cards to illustrate! Oh my 😅

That'll be my main priority over the coming months - finishing up the illustrations for all the cards. At the same time I will be interfacing with GameTrayz about the insert tweaks, the factory about materials, samples, and costs for the expansion and upgrades, and our localization partners for getting the files ready in other languages. I will also be prepping the survey to go out in the next couple months, which will require settling the shipping costs.

I'll be keeping you updated - watch this space!

How often will you be sending updates?

For the next few months I'll be sending updates once every 1-2 weeks, depending on what there is to share. Feel free to poke me in the comments section or on Discord if you want more frequent news. 

For now though, it's time to celebrate! Probably by seeing a movie - I want to catch The French Dispatch!

Thanks again. For real though.

Final day of voting is up! This is it!!

I've done it, filmmakers.

The final vote is here!

I have devised the most devilishly agonizing final voting day choice of all time. I know what you want in this expansion and I've found the perfect way to make you sweat for it. Your cursor will hover over that "submit vote" button, shaking, as you consider the consequences of your actions...let's go!

As for our story, well - it's awesome. It's the perfect b-movie: starts out with a strong narrative drive, then quickly devolves into action and nonsense until it ends abruptly in equal parts tragedy and comedy. What more could you want?! You've filmed a true cult classic here. Nice job. 

Now we just need that final scene to cap it all off and leave viewers dying for the sequel!

Can we make those "useless" tokens useful?

Yesterday you voted to upgrade the game with "extra fun random usless prop & costume tokens". My co-designer and developer for the expansion, John Velgus, and I are speaking about them right now. Originally these tokens were meant to just be for dressing up your scenes and nothing else, but we've got some interesting ideas for how we could integrate them into the actual gameplay. No promises, but I do like the idea that they might not be so useless after all...! Thanks for your suggestions, too, and keep 'em coming - they're helping a lot.

We crossed $200,000!

I'm speechless, really. Yesterday I figured out that all my crowdfunding efforts combined (if you include the original Roll Camera's post-campaign funding for shipping and addons) have raised over half a million dollars. I don't really even know what to do with that number. I just wanted to share it with you because...well, I guess because you're the one that made it happen!

And this is making me think about the future. Anything is possible! I feel the wind in the Keen Bean Studio sails. I've got some really neat projects lined up for the coming years and I am bursting at the seams to get them up here in front of you as soon as possible. 

Less than 24 hours left! Ahhhh so exciting

Penultimate voting day is up!

Last chance to save our hero

Click to vote!

The penultimate voting day is here, filmmakers! Let's see if we can't help our hero out, whaddya say?

I love the final days of a Kickstarter. The middle period is always kind of a lull, and now things kick into high gear again and we get to watch those numbers climb. So fun!

See you tomorrow for the last day of filming! Anyone know what the final shot of the day is called? It has a special term.

Voting day 12 is up!

Oh boy oh man oh dear, things did NOT go as I thought yesterday. You all voted for additional Production Company cards, which is awesome (we've got some really interesting scenario designs drafted for them) - but now I fear our film is going to have a tragic ending. In a way, it makes sense - from the first act, our story was one of redemption, and redemption often costs the highest price - especially if the opportunity for it is refused. Maybe that's what happened to our protagonist here. If we stubbornly refuse to change, there can be dire consequences.

But hey, that's up to you! What's your vote?

Voting day 11 is up! Final stretch, folks!

This is it!

In a few short days, this amazing campaign will be over - I can't believe how much you've raised so far. We blasted past both my previous campaigns - can we crack $200k?? Would be incredible. I didn't think we'd get that far so I didn't prepare a crazy far-off stretch goal like the clapper box from the first campaign - any ideas? The crazier the better!

Regarding the film reel insert tweaks for sleeved cards, by the way - I'm talking to GameTrayz about it. I don't think it'll be a problem but we haven't nailed any details down yet. I'll keep you posted.

Voting day #11 is ready for you

Click to vote!

Our story is entering the endgame, and first we have to knock our hero/ine down before they can stand up for themselves. The worst has to happen before they can earn their finale. The night has to get to its darkest point before the dawn can come.

What'll it be? A duel with a bounty hunter, or the hangman's noose?? You decide!

See ya in the comments!
