Hey, where do you find the list of ranked campaigns in a category? I haven't figured out how to do that.

Another metric to track!

Then just count. You're at #15 at the moment.

Ah, thanks for explaining that! I got it now.

And it looks like two of the top entries are concluding their campaigns in the next twelve hours, so will that put us in #13 at that point?

TLP has crossed the 75% funded threshold! To commemorate the occasion, I'm releasing the next tutorial puzzle (1-2) on the CaravelGames site and on the Kickstarter.

If you haven't gotten to see or play it yet, I invite you to try it out.

On the heels of the simple 1-1, you'll start noticing some choices you'll have to make here with ramifications that aren't immediately obvious, and you will need to think ahead a bit.

I check the campaign page at least twice a day. So cool to see it going steadily up, with victory in sight. I think the KS "magic" filter is no longer favoring TLP in the tabletop category. But the "popular" category still has it up high. I'm curious how it does after getting funded, because a different set of people will be looking for funded projects to back.

Seems a celebration is in order. Twisty Little Passages has hit its funding target! Wooooooooo!

Thank you again for supporting the campaign. I'm excited to complete production of an amazing puzzle game for you.

Wow www. Way to make it happen! Remember at the beginning when you had your doubts? Remember those times when it seemed like nobody was paying attention?

Very inspiring, Mike. Thanks for pushing on. Lots more work to fulfill those orders, but you've done that kind of thing many times before.

-Erik

Another week into the campaign and the amount pledged is still steadily increasing!

There are five print-and-play (PnP) demo puzzles for you to download and play on the campaign page (under the "Puzzles" section):

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/caravelgames/twisty-little-passages

Also, I've made a digital/PnP pledge option available at a reduced price. If you like the idea of playing through these puzzles, but don't necessarily want a physical book or are reluctant to pay for shipping, then this may be the option for you.

Expect the remainder to get much larger, more involved and more challenging!

I'm excited and grateful to be working on the rest of the project. I'm hoping we can hit some of the stretch goals in the final few days.

Hi, Blondbeard!

Yes, absolutely!

Apologies for the confusion on this point. KS doesn't allow me to modify reward descriptions once they're in use. Anyone who backs a physical copy of TLP also will receive access to a digital version for print-and-play.

Thanks! I think I will buy, and I would have been willing to pay a bit extra for that, so I think I'll just do that "on my own" to be fair.

Thanks for the kind words and your interest, Chinook!

I'll be working on making our pledge manager and a pre-order store available asap. I'll let you know when it's available and you can snag yourself a copy.

More congrats to Mike. Nearly $doubled what was asked for in the campaign, and the sheer count of backers... wow. A large amount of those would be people that have never heard of Caravel or Mike Rimer before. So that's newcomers excited about what Mike created. I'm really glad the campaign turned out so well.

It was super helpful to have your coverage and words of encouragement along the way.

For KS backers, you'll be able to add more late copies to your pledge via the pledge manager, BackerKit, at the time when I send out surveys to collect shipping addresses and payment. This will be later in the year, once we're getting close to printing copies at the manufacturer.

For those who haven't backed the campaign, I'll be opening a pre-order retail storefront on BackerKit within the next couple of weeks, where copies can be pre-ordered.

I just looked into the demo puzzles and I'm thinking about recreating this as a DROD RPG hold. It might not be possible, but I could always try.

All of the Chapter 1 puzzles should be easy to recreate in DROD RPG. I wouldn't publish the TLP puzzles as your own hold, of course.
