November Update!
8 days ago – Mon, Nov 22, 2021 at 01:57:24 PM

Hi,

I hope you're well.

Willi has to finish a couple of pages on his current project, which should complete over the next couple of days, and then he'll be ready to do the Innsmouth backer likeness images.

While we have this wait in proceedings, I'm continuing to playtest and polish the book. It'll be sent to the printers in early December.

Apologies for this slight delay. I thought I'd include some of the extra separator images we had as part of the stretch goals:

October Update

Hi,

I hope you're well.

I wanted to check-in to let you know we're going through the final run-throughs of the book, balancing the encounters, and snagging those hard-to-spot errors!

We're also waiting on some photos from the likeness in the book reward, so if that's you, please send your likenesses through to simon@bluefoxcomics.com and I can send them on to Willi to draw.

If we're able to get all the likenesses in time, we still aim to begin fulfilment in November.

A Branching Narrative

For anyone who doesn't know, I'm doing monthly interactive fiction adventures on my Substack newsletter 'A Branching Narrative'. We're two adventures in already, 'The Watchtower' and 'Vents!' and we're getting great feedback.

We have a free subscription, where you'll receive the first room of the adventure, and a paid subscription, where you'll receive the whole adventure.

Hi,

I hope you're well.

Just wanted to let you know the smoke test for Backerkit has just gone out. This has only gone to 5% of the backers, so if you haven't received it yet, don't worry. If all goes okay, I'll be sending out the rest of the surveys later today.

If you can spare a couple of minutes to fill it in as soon as possible, I'd really appreciate it.

Powers Fearful and Divine

Our latest comic Kickstarter is live and fully funded!

Powers Fearful and Divine has Houdini, Lovecraft and Conan Doyle battle for control of the 20th century, embodied by a twisted, half-mechanical Victor Frankenstein.

There's only a few hours left to grab the early-bird offers (ends at midnight tonight (BST)).
