I’ve made the decision to shut down my GoFundMe drive by February 13th (coincidentally, also Jason’s birthday).
We have had a really successful run, certainly raising far more than I ever expected– at present the drive sits at a total of $2,547.00, over $800 more than our original target. And that’s amazing! I really want to thank everyone again for all your support, and I’m starting work on all the rewards very soon.
Donors who paid for the Caturday tier or above are already receiving their rewards, with a minimum of one new Jason photo posted to Facebook and Twitter every Saturday. Which, well, I would probably do anyway, but this way I take extra care to make them well-lit and interesting. (I’m still confined by the fact my only camera is my phone and it sucks for this purpose, but barring doing another funding drive to buy a proper camera, well…)
Donors of the Cat Tracks level and above: unfortunately, Jason seems to clam up whenever I turn a mic on her, so I’m looking into alternatives. Right now I am thinking of small videos using Twitter’s new Vine service, which may or may not involve mewing. I’ll be contacting Cat Tracks+ donors by email soon to get in touch with you about this.
And as for the single Cat Games level donor, David Carlton (who has been an amazing source of support throughout this, providing feedback and signalboosting as well as his generous donation), your incredibly deep, dare I say profound, Twine game is also coming soon!
Again, I’m just completely floored by the amount of support that everyone has shown. If you were still planning to donate, or increase your current donation, you will have until February 13th to do so. Otherwise, I’ll be seeing many of you this March in San Francisco!
