The Kickstarter has ended! But this tale is not over...

With 944 backers (one in the last 60 seconds!), the Companions’ Tale Kickstarter has come to a close. All our stretch goals have been unlocked, and we are ready to finish this game and get it in our players’ hands.

We are so grateful to our backers who have had faith in our project and helped it come to fruition. Your support has given us a real creative boost and we will take that with us in the months to come.

Here’s what’s next for us:

If you’re an upper-tier backer, we’ll be in touch soon! We want to get started quickly about creating custom content and integrating it into the game.

Beyond that, we’re continuing with our production plan. We’ll set up Backerkit shortly to handle post-Kickstarter upgrades and multiple orders.

We’ll continue to post updates here and share our progress. We also encourage you to subscribe to our mailing list to hear about other Sweet Potato Projects!

We’ll talk to you all soon!

Final Hours… (And Backerkit)

Thank you all for joining us. It looks like our final stretch goal is in reach, and Creation Myth will be part of the game! This has been an amazing journey.

I wanted to mention that we’ve partnered with Backerkit to handle post-Kickstarter logistics and multiple orders, which many of you have expressed interest in! We’re finalizing those details, so expect more on that soon.
