Book of Travels offers five new stretch goals inspired by fans

Much of what Book of Travels’ crowdfunding drive is doing seems to be in service of fans, whether it’s the field of in-game flowers in honor of its backers or the newly announced set of stretch goals suggested by and inspired by supporters of the “tiny multiplayer online” title.

Five new goals have been added to the list based on either the number of total backers or funding that Book of Travels can drum up depending on the goal. These stretch goals include dreams that can affect your avatar for better or worse, a version of the game Rock Paper Scissors, and the ability to share memories at 4000, 4500, and 5000 backers respectively, as well as cosmetic accessories and pets at $175k and $200k.

Book of Travels appears to be on track to meet at least several of these goals, as the game currently has over 3700 backers pledging just over $140k with 13 days left to the campaign at the time of this writing.

Now that funding is achieved they can waste everyone’s time – including their own. Anyone who supported this beyond the developers friends and parents is an embarrassment.

The “stretch goal” road again all over again

Uh yeah, that’s how Kickstarters work. No offense, but duh :P

Most people backing this stuff *want* stretch goals. They didn’t even really have many but people asked them to put them in.

With this Company it doesn’t mean that the stretch goal content won’t make it in the game even eventually. But it’s nice to see the goal get reached and know it will be there for sure.

Do you realize i was poiting “stretch goals” as the main issue with kickstarter MMORPGS right?
Duh. double duh.

This is the only Kickstarter game I (and spouse) have seriously considered pledging for, as I’ve looked at their prior product history and genuinely respected what I see. And the more they lean into their “tiny multiplayer” philosophy, the more I’m into it.

Well you won’t get ripped off anyway. The game is going to be made and exist. It’s not someone trying to put together a company to make a game, they are there and working on it and it will be there for us even if the Kickstarter is a complete failure (which it’s too late to be but it would have still been made if it was).

You don’t need to go crazy or anything, but if you do feel like buying higher packs, more power to you. There is no reason not to get the $20 pack if you are interested in the game though. You basically will be getting the game cheaper than what it will be at release along with some extra backer goodies. If you ever plan on getting the game, you’re doing yourself a big favor going to pledge $20 during the Kickstarter.

I’d like to see more people back it so that we can see some extra stuff be put into the game for sure. And who knows, a lot of that stuff may get into the game anyway at some point in time, but it would be nice if it was backed from the Kickstarter to know we’re getting it :D

These guys do some really different and interesting stuff. They have some unique styles and things they do in their games. I really want to see where they continue to go as a company and just seeing who was making this game I knew I wanted to back it without knowing anything else about it at first.
