Kick-Heart Kickstarter progress update: two weeks remaining

Following on from my previous post, I've noticed that Production I.G has overhauled their rewards for Yuasa Masaaki's Kick-Heart Kickstarter drive. Having taken on a lot of fan feedback from the backers of the project, they're trying to add more value in the form of additional subtitle tracks, additional rewards for supporters and additional goals (which may be impossible) such as lengthening the short film substantially if there's enough demand. They've promised to make it thirty minutes longer if they can raise $400,000 rather than their original goal of $150,000, and if they can get over $1,000,000 they'll go all out and create a full feature film.

The extra rewards are interesting and I've ended up slightly raising my own bid as a result. They've added DVD editions, as some customers were complaining that they wanted something physical other than the Blu-Ray. There are also t-shirts and soundtracks on offer. The progress had slowed greatly over the last week, now sitting at $105,000 with 14 days left to make up the rest. I think they'll be able to pull it off.

I'm really sorry that I had to switch on authentication for comments. The blog had started to receive dozens of spam comments each week. I hope that this new setting will help!
