Kodomo no Jikan Kickstarter Update #59
We're happy to announce that we are officially wrapping up the wonder 3 campaign. We are still waiting to see if a few backers will contact us, however, other than that, we are pretty much done and are starting to do the final things we need to before moving onto this campaign.
Currently, our plan is to first finish wrapping up the Wonder 3 kickstarter. This involves us waiting to see if any of the remaining backers contact us, and once it looks like all the backers that will be contacting us have done so, we will take count of who is left and inventory the remaining items.
Once everything for the Wonder 3 campaign has been taken care of, we will start collecting and inventorying all the items we currently have for this campaign in our office. We will also start ordering shipping supplies, and begin prepping the items for shipment, so we can start sending out the non-book rewards to our domestic backers.
Based on our current printing schedule, we will most likely print the first book for this campaign, either at the end of this year or at the very beginning of next year. Unfortunately, as a result of the pandemic and the paper shortage, we have to plan prints in advance before we can print them.
For those of you worried about your address, we would like to let you know that prior to shipping out any rewards, we will be sending out a survey for each tier to ask for your current address. Therefore, if you have moved since this campaign first began, you don't need to worry, as we will only be using your address from the survey when we send out your items.
We will provide an update when we start to send out surveys and are ready to start shipping out some of the rewards!
