Editor working on gamebook text! - Post-campaign update 13
26 days ago – Thu, May 20, 2021 at 07:03:20 PM

Hi backers!


Quick updated here from Axon Punk this month - we have finished internal reviews of the new material for this edition of the gamebook and have sent everything except one chapter to our professional editor, which is very exciting! We still have one chapter in the works, which is headlined by one of our co-authors. When that and our editor are done, we'll send it off to our layout graphic designer who is already primed to insert the final text to his prepped InDesign file.

It looks like we won't quite hit the fulfillment goal of end-of-May for the gamebook, but it shouldn't be much into June before you can get that survey out and you can get your gamebooks in the printing press and/or PDF for you! Thank you all again for all the the understanding and patience. The project has really skyrocketed in quality compared to the original plan so it is paying off.

Best!

Colin,

Hello backers!

We hope everyone has been keeping warm in the last few weeks - especially our friends and family in Texas! We've been digging away over at WBG and have some fun updates for you.


Layout Progress: Charles is hard at work and things are looking gorgeous! He sent us the first draft of layout concepts and they totally knocked our socks off. He is definitely taking Axon Punk to the "next level" with layout and things are already looking luscious. We'll be sharing samples in coming updates, so look forward to that!


WBG Website Update and FREE GAME: In a the chaos of this year, our website crashed so we had to rebuild and update. It was totally worth it and is really gorgeous. Cameron did a great job laying the foundation with his own personal site

New Layout Designer and Projected Fulfillment Date! - Post-campaign update 9
4 months ago – Mon, Feb 01, 2021 at 10:53:12 PM

Hello backers!

We've been hard at work in the Axon Punk forges and have two announcements for this update!


To start, we are thrilled to announce that we have teamed up with a new layout designer to help us take the new edition of Axon Punk to the next level. Colin was originally planning on doing the layout again but our Kickstarter did so well, we decided to spring for hiring a proper layout artist.  The designer, Charles Mayo, was new to us but comes with a boatload of amazing experience. We are so grateful to be able to work with him and he's already brewing up awesome ideas for the book. Very exciting!

Our new layout designer, Charles Mayo - welcome him to the Axon Punk family!

With the addition of Charles to the team, we had the final component of the equation to project a fulfillment deadline for Axon Punk: Expanded. Based on our calculations, we are projecting a fulfillment deadline of the end of May, 2021. Thank you so much for your understanding and patience with the health issues. The extra time and experience will most definitely create a better product, but we also want to respect deadlines and appreciate every individual one of yours support. We know kickstarter can be a wild and often frustrating ride from a backer's perspective, and we look forward to continue giving transparency and communication as we bring this ship in the harbor. Feel free to message if you have any questions!


Thank you!
