The DLC Podcast Kickstarter is doing incredibly well. We’re nearing our last stretch goal with 18 days left to go. Already we have “unlocked” some cool stuff.
The show will now have an original theme song by Tycho and Kris Straub. The USB drive that all of our $55 supporters get will now be emblazoned with the DLC logo. One of the episodes will be animated by Kris Straub. The USB drives will come loaded with almost all of our PAX Q&A panels (we lost two) and we’re very close to hitting our final goal which is my favorite.
Once we break the 100k level we will produce a special episode of DLC that will be a Thornwatch adventure run by me and played by some of our very special friends. Thornwatch is the tabletop card game/RPG that I created set in the Lookouts universe. I’ve run it for friends and even did a playtest out at PAX East this year. The game is really solid now and this will be a great way to share it with you all. Not only that but everyone at the $35 level or above will get a free Steam code for Defense Grid!
I want to thank everyone who has supported us via the Kickstarter. We love making stuff. From the comic strip, to Strip Search and PATV, to pins,books,shirts and all our other merchandise to PAX and the Rainslick Games to the Penny Arcade Report and Trenches. We’ve managed to build a little company here of about 15 people who fucking love making stuff. No question, we have the best jobs in the world and it’s because of you guys and your support that we’re able to keep doing it. So from me and everyone else here at PA, thank you.
