Update on Backer Rewards (Oct 2022)

Greetings, backers. As we approach the release date for our console ports (Oct 18), it is past time we provided you with a full update on the current status of backer rewards, particularly physicals. Thankfully, there is some good news to share. Let's dive in.

Physical Rewards
Backers entitled to receive the physical game copy, soundtrack, and movelist postcard rewards have been waiting so long that they are about to be eclipsed by the release of console ports. We are still working on them (and they're almost done we swear), but to show our appreciation for the wait, all backers receiving physical rewards may also choose a digital key for the base game on the console platform of their choice, for free.

For clarity, that's everyone who pledged $100+, plus the Unicorn Mage tier, but not the Cattlekind Pioneer tier.

To request your key, return to your backer survey on Backerkit. We've added a question to collect your preferences.

IMPORTANT: This bonus offer is only valid until the end of the year! If we don't receive a response from you before Jan 1 2023, we will assume you don't want it!

This offer is for the base game only. It does not include the Deluxe Edition or Season 1 Pass.

Keys will be sent out sometime after the launch on Oct 18. We will check and process requests regularly once the chaos from the release settles down.

Thank you again for your patience on this. If you have questions about this bonus offer, please email us at contact@mane6.com.

Other Rewards
Status on the remaining crowdfund rewards can be found here.

Here's a rough breakdown of completion priority:

First Priority
  • Physical Rewards (Game Copy, Soundtrack, and Moveset Postcards)
  • Doodles/Sketches by Lauren Faust

Next Priority
  • Digital Gallery
  • Video Call with Mane6/Lauren Faust

Final Priority
  • Super Toots
  • "Shiny" Pixel Lobby Accessories
  • Create a Pixel Lobby Sprite

Again, we want to express our deepest apologies for the length of time between the last update and now. There has been a lot of "hurry up and wait" as we work on fulfilling the backer rewards, and we generally don't want to trouble people with updates until there is something to update about.

We are committed to taking things through all the way to the end, no matter how long it takes. Thank you all for your initial and continued support of the ungulate fighting project. We will be in touch again when it's time to ship physical rewards!
