$70,000 Stretch Goal Unlocked
6 months ago – Sun, Jun 17, 2018 at 08:59:37 PM

And just like that, another stretch goal! We hit $70,000, which means we've unlocked the map of the kingdom!

Chessopotamia is the kingdom where King Chompy, King Shaky, and all the other characters in Story Time Chess live. With the $70,000 stretch goal unlocked, we can now bring that to life in the storybook.

Let's keep unlocking more goals!

Over $65,000! Last 24 Hours!

Over $65,000!

We hit over $65,000! That means we've unlocked ANOTHER stretch goal:

The digital storybook (which everyone who pledged $15 and up receives) will also have a coloring book in it! Now, you'll be able to color all the characters in Story Time Chess.

Last 24 hours!

This is it! We only have 24 hours left, so if you know anyone that wants Story Time Chess, be sure to tell them about it before the campaign ends.

We are so, so grateful that you have helped us make this dream a reality. Story Time Chess wouldn't exist without you, and you should be proud you've helped create something.

Looking forward to seeing the final goals we unlock, and to getting the games made!
