Latest Updates from Our Project:

🔥 The Helpers Have Arrived!
8 months ago – Wed, Sep 20, 2023 at 02:11:14 PM

TL;DR

  • Backers have unlocked the fourth stretch goal, so we're now closing in on unlocking Squatch & Seek as our third lumberjack game
  • Voting is now open for the next stretch goal
  • Sasquatch Die color options are running neck-and-neck; voting is still open
  • Producer Jeff Tidball on challenges and highlights

👨‍🚒 Helpers Unlocked!

This afternoon the campaign unlocked the Squatch & Seek Helpers stretch goal, increasing the adjusted backer count by 100, getting us more than 80% of the way to unlocking this free game for nearly all backers.

With one week left to go we are in excellent shape to make this free game a reality.

☑️ Stretch Goal #5 Voting is Open

All previous stretch goals remain available in the next round of stretch goal voting. For backers who want to cement Squatch & Seek's status, we've added the option for a second round of backer-adjusting helpers, which will all but guarantee that the game will be unlocked.

🗳️ Stretch Goal 5 Voting is Open

 🎲 The Dice are Neck-and-Neck!

In the last backer update, we asked you to weight in on the approach we should take to coloring the die you unlocked with the Prismatic Sasquatch upgrade.

Voting is neck-and-neck, so if you haven't voted yet, make sure your voice is heard. We'll run voting all the way to the end of the campaign.

🐻 Squatch & Seek Helpers: On the Way!
8 months ago – Mon, Sep 18, 2023 at 12:02:53 PM

TL;DR

  • Backers have chosen Squatch & Seek Helpers as the next stretch goal, and we're almost there!
  • Vote between approaches to the multi-color Sasquatch Die
  • Photos of tiny flapjack stacks!
  • Game Designer Darrek Olson on the highlights and challenges of Lumberjacks with Rocket Launchers 

🛟 Next Stretch Goal: Squatch & Seek Helpers

 Squatch & Seek is a reskin of Fight in the Box's Squirrel or Die combat memory card game. We'll add it to the Kickstarter as a free bonus for every backer at Deluxe Flapjacks and above when the campagin reaches 650 adjusted backers. Backers have voted to spend 8,000 Bacon Slices from the stretch goal fund to add 100 adjusted backers to the running total. 

Today, we're 67% of the way to unlocking Squatch & Seek. When the Bacon Log reaches 8,000 Bacon Strips — as of this writing, we're just 466 away — we'll leap straight to 82% complete. That's within easy striking distance of our goal to unlock it as a free game, especially with the campaign's Bacon-lucrative final days on the horizon.

🎨 Multi-Color Sasquatch Die Polling is Open

We could use your advice, backers! You recently unlocked the Prismatic Sasquatch stretch goal, which adds a pearlescent swirl and three-toned appearance to the Sasquatch Die in the Flapjacks Dice Game.

We could go two different routes, one more subtle and one more varired. Kenzie mocked them both up to give you a sample: 

On the left, a subtle swirl of three complementary greens. On the right, a green base shot through with contrasting white and gold hues.

🗳️ Which do you prefer? Vote in our latest poll!

(Keep in mind: These are computer-generated simulations to help us visualize the options. Final production dice will vary from what you see here.)

🥞 Tiny Pancakes 

We've received factory photos of our sculpted and painted dice flapjacks. These will go inside the Deluxe Edition and Collector Edition clear resin dice, as well as inside the Pancake Polyhedral RPG dice add-ons. Adorable! Delicious! (But: Do not eat.)

💪 We've Pumped Up the Sasquatch Die
9 months ago – Fri, Sep 08, 2023 at 09:29:53 AM

TL;DR

  • Backers unlocked the Mega Sasquatch upgrade.
  • The fourth stretch goal survey is open for voting, with new options added.
  • Interview clips with illustrator Josh Nelson on the fun and challenges on this project.

🥓 Upgrade Unlocked: Mega Sasquatch

The voice of the backers has resoundingly selected the Mega Sasquatch upgrade, embiggening the Sasquatch Die in the Flapjacks Dice Game.

This upgrade applies to all three editions: Standard, Deluxe, and Collector.

🗳️ The Fourth Survey is Open

By backer request, the next survey has three new options!

  •  New Stock & Spot Rocket Launcher Options: We wanted to include Lumberjacks with Rocket Launchers in the stretch goal love, so new options offer crystal spot varnish and cardstock upgrade options.
  •  New Squatch & Seek Logging Camp Helpers: We know some folks are extremely enthusiastic about Squatch & Seek and want faster progress towards its unlock, so the survey now has the option to spend Bacon to add 100 adjusted backers toward the 650 needed to unlock it as a free addition for all backers at Deluxe Flapjacks and higher.

The Mega Sasquatch upgrade was slightly less expensive than the previous pair of upgrades. As of this writing, the Bacon Log shows a 4,993 Bacon Strip balance, so the upgrade chosen next will be worked toward over time rather than instantly unlocked, as the last three goals have been.

As ever, there's a checklist of easy things you can do to earn more Bacon at the bottom of the Bacon Log.

✨ We've Unlocked a Sparkly Multi-Color Sasquatch
9 months ago – Tue, Sep 05, 2023 at 05:13:20 PM

TL;DR

  • Backers unlocked the Prismatic Sasquatch upgrade.
  • The third stretch goal survey is open for voting!
  • We're 59% of the way to unlocking Squatch & Seek for backers at the Deluxe Flapjacks tier and higher.

🥓 Upgrade Unlocked: Prismatic Sasquatch

The backers have spoken again! The campaign's next 15,000 Bacon Strips will upgrade the Sasquatch Die in the Flapjacks Dice Game to comprise three swirled accented with pearlescent sparkles.

This upgrade applies to all three editions: Standard, Deluxe, and Collector.

 🗳️ The Third Survey is Open

Although we've spent 30,000 Bacon Strips, there's more gas in the tank. We have 16,362 more to spend as of this writing, with more accumulating every day.

(Want to help  accumulate more Bacon? There's a checklist of things you can do at the bottom of the Bacon Log. Have you completed them all?)

Voting is now open for the third stretch goal upgrade:

☑️ Cast Your Vote in Stretch Goal Survey #3

Cast your vote on Wednesday or Thursday and we'll reveal the results on Friday, before the weekend gets underway.

Based on backer suggestions, we're investigating a cardstock upgrade to Lumberjacks with Rocket Launchers as a future stretch goal. We'll add it to the next survey if we get pricing information from our printer in time.

👀 Squatch & Seek Update

Squatch & Seek will be free to all backers at the Deluxe Flapjacks tier and higher if unlocked. We're doing pretty well at 59% of the way there. 

This stretch game unlocks on a different track than other stretch goals: We need 650 backers. You can help us reach this goal — and get a free game — by spreading the word about the campaign. Point your friends at prolificgames.net/lumberjackgames.
