January Update
19 days ago – Fri, Jan 07, 2022 at 01:55:41 PM

Hey Everyone,

We hope you’ve all had a chance to take a bit of a break this Holiday season and spend some time with the furniture assembling partners in your life!

This is our first update since reaching our funding goal! We’re going to be putting out one of these posts during the first week of each month going forward. You’ll hear from us even when there isn’t much to update you all on just to check in and say hi as we work on the game.


PAX

December was a busy month for our team all around. We kicked it off with a trip down to Philly for PAX Unplugged where we got to play KÖ-OP live and in person with some of you for the first time! Thanks to everyone who swung by the booth to say hi, try the game, and generally talk about flat-pack furniture with us.

Getting Started

We used our time in between PAX and the Holidays to hit the ground running on getting KÖ-OP print ready. Here’s what the teams been up to:

  • Pat has been spending most of his time stress testing the newest THIS WÅY ÜP cards and has also started laying out the newest art from Alisha onto our cards. (The holidays we’re actually a great time for playtesting as I got to enlist my family for a few days as playtesters -Pat)
  • Alisha has begun working through our list of remaining art assets. Namely, the assemblers who will go on the black and white face sides of the hex cards. We wanted these cards to show our cartoon crew actually assembling flat-pack furniture and it’s been a good spot to start using some of your suggestions from our stretch goals.
  • Ari has begun another editorial sweep of our flavor text. This time he’s pinpointing some of the “read aloud” lines we felt landed a little flat with the PAX crowd at the start of the month.

And that’s it for December! Looking forward, our next big goal on the horizon is to get the Backerkit pledge manager out to you all this month. From the pledge manager, you’ll be able to enter or change your address and manage your pledge directly. We’ll post another update when this goes live so you don’t miss it!

Campaign Complete!
about 2 months ago – Thu, Dec 02, 2021 at 07:15:55 PM

     With more than 500 backers in support, our Kickstarter campaign is complete! We’d like to take a second here before our work begins to thank each of you for supporting us and helping us keep making games. We have a ton of fun building these projects and it means a lot to us to get to produce KÖ-ØP now. 

So, what's next?  

     Immediately on our horizon is PAX Unplugged next week. We’ll be joining the Tabletop Co-Op in booth #3433. If you find yourself in Philly come say hi, play a round of the game with us, or maybe pop in on a panel.  

     Beyond PAX, we’re getting right to work finalizing the game. Alisha has already begun implementing your art suggestions from the campaign, Pat is running the newest cards from the THIS WÅY ÜP Expansion through their paces, and Ari is hard at work crafting every break up line with as much bite as possible.  

Surveys, Rewards, and Add Ons 

     We’re going to be handling surveys, rewards, and shipping costs through Backerkit for this campaign.  In the pledge manager you'll be able to add any additional copies of the game or expansion you would like. Those pages aren’t up just yet, but keep an eye out on your email for a notification for when they are.


     We’ll be posting an update on the campaign here at least once a month going forward to keep you up to date with all the information we have. In the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter for more information on our progress.

KÖ-ØP Art and PÖ-LY
about 2 months ago – Tue, Nov 30, 2021 at 08:33:00 PM

Co-Op Art

    With just under 48 hours left, we just crossed our next stretch goal! Thanks to everyone who submitted art suggestions for what they want to see included in the game. We'll be including many of these in the final printing. Here’s a look at what Alisha’s been working on!

Unsurprisingly the cats performed well on the Twitter polls.

PÖ-LY

     With that done, our next stretch goal is up now to try and hit. If we can cross $23,000 before the campaign ends, we’ll be developing the PÖ-LY ruleset for KÖ-ØP that lets you play with 3 or more partners, instead of just 2.  If you’d like to help us get there, or just give us a boost in the final push of our campaign, you can help by sharing these links on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

We’ve launched the first of the stretch goal polls to help us design Illustrations for KÖ-ØP! 

   These polls are pulled from your suggestions and we’ll be revealing the finished designs for a few of them, if we hit our next stretch goal.  

-You can take part in the first poll by clicking HERE.

-If you want to add your own suggestions of what you’d like to see in the game, you can share your ideas by clicking HERE.


Rewards

   We’ve gotten a few small requests regarding add-ons and reward levels that we’d also like to clarify here, briefly: 

-All backer levels above $5 will have a .pdf Print-and-Play for the game emailed to them as part of their reward.  

-Folks who back the FLÅT PÅCK reward will have the option through Backer Kit to add multiple custom cards to their order.  


Thank you everyone, for helping us get through the halfway point on this campaign!
