Last night, all eyes were on Mongo as the Kickstarter for The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ rocketed into history! With 1,027 individual backers, our initial $15,000 goal (which was met in the first hour of the campaign) was crushed by the final total of nearly $110,000! All of our Stretch Goals were met (from form fillable character sheets to miniatures to propaganda prints for your secret rebel hideout) and we really appreciate all your generous support and enthusiasm!
We also want to thank the many blogs, podcasts, and pop culture news sites that helped promote the Kickstarter. Here are just a handful of links in case you want to watch, read, or listen to some of this amazing coverage:
- The Happy Jack’s RPG Podcast (featuring Flash Gordon™ RPG Brand Manager, Scott Woodard)
- The BAMF Podcast (also with Scott)
- Geek Dad’s Kickstarter Tabletop Alert: ‘The Savage World of Flash Gordon’
- Jess’s Fav Five Kickstarters of the Week 12/1/17
- Farsight Blogger’s Interview with Scott A Woodard of Pinnacle Entertainment Group
Right now, we’re going to settle in for a bit and finish off the editing and development. Kickstarter will begin processing payments and deliver funds in about two to three weeks and then we can export the data and start delivering the various PDFs to backers. Some will come right away, others will take a little longer as we work through any issues that crop up.
We’ll then send everything to the printer as soon as it’s ready and then if all goes according to plan (assuming Ming and his minions don’t interfere with the process) everything will come back in about four months and we’ll start shipping. And while you wait, be sure to adorn your various electronic devices with our FREE Flash Gordon wallpapers (featuring FLASH-tastic art by Aaron Riley) now available over at DriveThruRPG.
