UPDATE: THANK YOU to the 2,216 people who backed our campaign, in which we raised $114,136 to create many awesome things. Thank you also to everyone who helped us get the word out–it literally would not have been this successful without your help. If you’re a backer, you’ll receive project Updates as we go along through Kickstarter. Otherwise, we’ll be sharing all the delicious fruits of the campaign (except the PaulandStormonomicon story and art anthology, which is only available to backers) once they’ve been completed, and after they’ve been distributed to backers.
After much planning, deliberation, budget analysis, and (mostly) dreaming, we are finally proud to officially announce that we are finishing up our fifth album, Ball Pit, and that we’ll be making it available first to backers of our new Kickstarter campaign, which will help fund music videos, more RPG songlets (and possibly an RPG soundboard app), and a bonus album of cover song collaborations (which will be called Extra Balls, get it?) with some of our musician friends.
Full details are on the Ball Pit launch Kickstarter page, where you can help contribute RIGHT NOW! Or LATER! (Any time between now at December 14th will do just fine, thank you very much.) But the basic idea is to help us make as big a splash as possible with the new album, and give away some fun rewards in the process (including, of course, the BALL PIT and EXTRA BALLS albums). Our initial goal is $25,000, and we’ve got mayhem planned all the way up to $350,000. Basically, the more we raise, the more interesting and awesome things we can do and make for you. And while we don’t expect to raise $350,000, if we do then we’ll buy an ice cream truck and tour the country in it, giving away ice cream and guacamole along the way. (And we’ll film the whole ridiculous trek.)
But don’t just take it from us. Take it from us in this video:
