Feel free to follow the latest Far West developments:

Fastest Gun In The FAR WEST

As we mentioned in our last update, we launched the Kickstarter crowd-funding project for the FAR WEST Limited Edition Adventure Game on Monday. We set our minimum goal at $5,000 US.

We achieved that minimum goal within 15 hours of launch.

I don’t think I’ve seen any RPG Kickstarter reach that level of funding so rapidly. FAR WEST is quick on the draw! As of the time of this writing, we’ve just passed $7,000.

First of all, a hearty THANK YOU to everyone who has pledged so far. We love our backers — the enthusiasm that you’re showing really makes us feel that the long ride to this point has been worth it. We’ve been developing FAR WEST for four years, and watching the response as we’ve gone live has really been a wonderful experience.

So what does this mean for the program? Well, we keep going — the more funding we raise, the more we can do. The Kickstarter will stay active until August 25th. If you’ve got friends who haven’t saddled up yet, point them in our direction — as we continue, we’re adding additional rewards to everyone who has pledged.

Our first new goal has been set: If we can reach $10,000 US, we will add an exclusive supplement for all backers:

LEGENDS OF THE FAR WEST will be a collection of characters presented for use in your games. Each character will come with several adventure hooks and encounters, suggesting ways that they can be incorporated into your campaign. This will be made available electronically (PDF, Ebook, Kindle), and, for those backers who have pledged $50 or more, it will be available as a softcover printed book as well. LEGENDS OF THE FAR WEST will never be made available through traditional distribution or electronic sales at a later date. This supplement is exclusive to this Kickstarter only.

If you have any suggestions for things you’d like to see us add as we reach more goals, feel free to add them to the comments. We’d love to hear from you!
