Both our Kickstartered Games have been successfully kickstarted!


ThisTown-logoYay and thanks to everyone who supported in whatever way you could for getting both Tortuga and This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us funded! It was a fun ride – especially the last day for This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us as we had a swell of comments and engagement from our backers! In fact, we had more comments on the final 2 days than we did over the rest of the entire campaign! Wow!

Here are some stats:

How much funds we brought in each day for This Town Ain't Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us

How much funds we brought in each day for This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us

How many backers we had for This Town Ain't Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us

How many backers we had for This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us

How many comments we had per day for This Town Ain't Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us

How many comments we had per day for This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us

The last day was only an hour or so – so you could really combine those last 2 columns into the same day! Note that while we had more funds raised on the last day than the previous day – we had almost the same number of backers – which means that existing backers raised their pledge level – awesome! So the game is funded – 601% of our initial target, so that’s fantastic! In the future the game will only be available on the TMG website (Tasty Minstrel Games). But it’s cool to know that at least 4687 people will be playing this game in a few months!!

Let’s compare to our other game, Tortuga:

I believe it had nothing to do with the game but some people didn’t feel like the stretch goals were enticing enough (though I think the extra island is pretty darned cool!) and some people were turned off from the fact that the game was already available for pre-order elsewhere. Oh well – we still hit 284% of our target and the game is coming out! Once it comes out – all these negatives will hopefully be forgotten as the focus then shifts to the actual gameplay.

So an exciting couple of weeks for the Bamboozle Brothers. We’ll be back on the Kickstarter bandwagon in a month or two when our next game, But Wait There’s More starts its campaign from Toy Vault! That should be a lot of fun because the game has the Monty Python license attached to it!! Wow! Stay tuned for all those details. And thanks again for those that backed either or both of our recent games on Kickstarter!!
