STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET is coming this month, launching in 2 days on Kickstarter. It’s spacesuit noir revenge from Alex Cormack and me, you’re gonna love it.
You know what the basic pledges are. You know what the deluxe pledges are. You’ve met the creative team, and lead characters.
But my campaigns aren’t complete unless there’s some high quality Stretch Goals getting unlocked, so here’s what we’ve got.
Hold onto your hats, because this campaign might be my best value-for-dollar month ever.
Stretch Goals will release in direct messages, from me to you, throughout the campaign to download all kinds of extra good, and in selective tiers.
For each milestone we surpass, Stretch Goals for different pledge tiers will unlock. The more you’ve pledged, the more unlocks you’ll get in your inbox at each milestone – with higher pledge tiers getting all unlocked content. Make sense?
Check below for a list of the Stretch Goals, and what pledge tiers get which ones.
