Latest Updates from Our Project:

Matching Adventure Survey & Production Update!
4 days ago – Mon, Sep 14, 2020 at 11:16:19 PM

Greetings Citizens of Treasure Falls, 

I hope you had a great weekend!

BACKERKIT SURVEY UPDATE

Over 80% of backers have completed their surveys! Thank you so much for knocking this out - it helps us tremendously while planning the next steps of our project. At this point everyone should have received an email from BackerKit with a link to the survey. If you are yet to see one please let me know and I will send one over ASAP. We will be locking orders in early October, so please try and complete your survey soon. Thanks!

We have not had many support queries (which is great!), however if you do encounter any issues with the survey certainly let us know and we will be happy to help you.

PRODUCTION UPDATE

We received our first production sample of The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure last week. We are very happy with 90% of it. Here are some pics:

Inside box art and outer box side art.
Back of box
Magnetic Treasure Box (used to draw treasure tokens)
Treasure Box opened.
Fronts of Adventure Tiles and Tree House Tiles.
Ally tiles featuring gold foil printing of "SPECIAL POWER".
Some backs of Adventure Tiles featuring silly bad guys from Treasure Falls.
Hero Tiles with gold foil printing.

The one major issue with the prototype is the manufacturer printed the treasure tokens as squares instead of as circles (see below). We are obviously correcting this error. 

Treasure tokens (printed as squares instead of circles).

We are happy with the quality and appearance of the components. The manufacturer is going to send us some photos of the updated circular treasure tokens and once we approve those mass production will commence! 

Thanks as always for your support! A Quest Kids quest is never done.

15 days ago – Thu, Sep 03, 2020 at 10:27:37 AM

Greetings Citizens of Treasure Falls!

Soon you’ll receive an email from us with a special link to your BackerKit survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we must have this information to fulfill your rewards.

If you have previously used BackerKit then the main info you need from me is that all surveys should be sent by Sunday, 9/6. Please reach out to me if you haven't received one by next week.  

For those of you who are new to BackerKit here is a detailed description of how the process works and any questions that you may have. 

The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure BackerKit Survey

You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey.  When you receive the BackerKit email simply click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items or change your reward level if you like.

You don’t have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email! I will provide an update here when all of the surveys have been sent and provide assistance to anyone who is missing the email. All surveys should be sent by Sunday, 9/6.

After you respond to your survey you can go back later and change your responses at any time (before we close the surveys to get our final counts).

If you need to review your information or pledge status you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit  project page at https://the-quest-kids-matching-adventure.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account.

Yes! All Backers must complete the BackerKit survey to confirm your address and pay for shipping.

What If I Included extra funds for Add-Ons?

If you pledged extra funds for Add-Ons, you will find a credit in your BackerKit account. As you go through the survey process, you will be  able to use this credit towards Add-On items.

Yes, you can upgrade your pledge level or purchase Add-Ons! To change your pledge level select the blue "switch your pledge level" link  located on the first page of the survey (pictured below).

Thank you!!! Your Matching Adventure shall soon begin.

Greetings Adventurers of Treasure Falls,

Our quest has concluded and we ended our journey with 293 heroes in our party and achieved 159% of our goal! Also, yesterday I moved the goal down to $9,500 to unlock the gold foil background stretch goal for all Hero Tiles, and we unlocked this upgrade in the last minutes of the campaign! 

My job now is to create the best version of The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure that I  possibly can and to communicate important milestones openly and frequently during the production process. 

Speaking of the production process...it will begin very soon! I'll send an update next week focused on our pledge manager timing and plans. The pledge manager is the process that will allow you to finalize your order and potentially add items to your pledge. The pledge manager survey will most likely be sent next week!

Thank you again for supporting our matching game with a fantasy twist. 

A Quest Kids quest is never done.

Final Days + stretch goal unlocked!
23 days ago – Wed, Aug 26, 2020 at 07:22:42 PM

Greetings Citizens of Treasure Falls, 

The campaign for The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure ends in about 30 hours (August 27th at 8:17 PM CST to be exact). Our quest is almost complete, however a few trials remain on our final day.

I'm thrilled to share that we have unlocked a stretch goal. All 8 Ally Tiles will have fancy gold foil lettering! I have also adjusted the target for the final stretch goal down a bit. Take a look:

If we hit the $11K goal all 12 Hero Tiles will have a gold foil background! These are the most valuable tiles in the game and it'd be amazing to have them standout from the rest of the tiles with this upgrade. 

Also, I'd like to share a review of the game from the crew over at 90 Second Nerd. Their videos are always entertaining, informative and to the point (hence the name). Plus, they dug the game. Check it out:

If you feel like sharing the campaign with your circle of friends one last time (and helping us reach that final stretch goal!) here's a link to a new FACEBOOK POST on the Treasure Falls Games page. 

Thank you once again for supporting our fantasy matching game! 

A Quest Kids quest is never done,

Closing in on first Stetch Goal + The Dice Tower coverage!
28 days ago – Fri, Aug 21, 2020 at 03:56:33 PM

Happy Friday Citizens of Treasure Falls,

We have 6 days left in the campaign and are closing in on our first stretch goal, which is gold foil lettering on all 8 Ally Tiles! I think we can vanquish this foe soon. What say you???

Also, I am thrilled to share that we were mentioned in this week's CrowdSurfing video on The Dice Tower! I'd imagine like many of you, The Dice Tower has had a tremendous impact on my love of this hobby. It was almost a decade ago now that I stumbled across Tom's videos when googling strategies for Dominion, and I have been a fan, listener and subscriber ever since. 

So, it is quite flattering that Tom and the rest of the guys seemed to dig what they were seeing on the Matching Adventure campaign page! Check it out:

While they all seemed to like the game, The Dice Tower crew was split on our theme song. Do you think our song is "straight fire" or closer to a bad parody that you'd hear on Robot Chicken? You can hear it in the game trailer video, which is on our Kickstarter page and also right here:

Thanks again for your support of The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure! I think we'll have a great final week and I can't wait to get this game to you and your families soon. 

A Quest Kids quest is never done!
