New year, new looks!
3 months ago – Sat, Jan 18, 2020 at 02:40:52 AM

We entered a new decade, everyone! We hope your holiday season was restful and you could spend the time with good food, nice people and fun things. 🎈

The three of us took a few days off to relax so we’re up and ready to conquer 2020! We want to share with you some of the bigger plans we have in mind over the next couple of weeks.
We hope you’ll like it! 😍

Our first big task is Character Customization.💄
Thanks to all of you, players will be able to change Sarah’s look! We are super excited about it so Selina came up with some new color palettes for our protagonist. Aleksandra is working on the system to implement it and Martina is... also there. 😉


Coming up with new looks is fun but there is also a lot of work involved. As you might know, there will be multiple playable versions of Sarah and she is probably the most frequently drawn character in the whole game. So even without character customization, we have about eight Sarah’s including dozens of animations that Selina is redrawing at the moment. 🎨


We will make sure to share all the further progress so make sure to follow us on social media if you want to see more. 

In the meantime, Aleksandra and Martina are working on other interesting things which we will reveal in the next update. Stay tuned! 😀

Also, a little reminder for everyone who didn’t do it already:
🚨 Please fill out your Kickstarter survey 🚨
We need this information to order, prepare and eventually send out all the goodies! The earlier we got your info, the earlier we can ship everything.
Please let us know, should you have any problems with the survey or if you have any questions about BackerKit. We’re glad to help. 😊

And if you have friends or family that would like to get some of the Kickstarter goodies too or want to support the game, you can share this link with them:
 ➡️ http://bit.ly/Letters_BackerKit

The link will be up until the end of February and it is possible to pay with PayPal which is great for people who don’t have a credit card. 😀

Other than that, we wish you a great start to 2020. Let's all make the most of it! 😍
All the best,
Aleksandra, Martina & Selina

Happy Holidays everyone!
3 months ago – Tue, Dec 24, 2019 at 01:52:44 AM

Hi, friends!

Happy Holidays and a good start into the new year to all of you!

2019 will be over soon so we wanted to recap the last few months and give you an outlook on what awaits you in 2020.

We were selected to be part of an accelerator program called ZKubator which will help us financially and in our journey to establish our studio 5am Games.

We gathered more feedback from exhibitions and from all of you to combat weak points, boost features and just set ourselves up for making Letters the best it can be.

And of course, our biggest highlight in 2019 was managing to raise over CHF 24’000 with your support! We are still trying to process this whole Kickstarter adventure. Thank you all so so much for believing in Letters and helping us to bring it to life.

We are looking forward to getting some rest over the holidays and kick off 2020 with new energy, fresh ideas and all of you on our side.

Next year will be all about finishing up Letters, testing and polishing our baby so we’re ready for a release in early 2021.

As we are constantly learning and improving, we have big plans for 2020. We have always been reiterating levels to make them smarter, prettier and more fun. But next year we’ll go over the whole project to make the story more meaningful, streamline the technology behind it and implement new exciting things like character customization!
We can’t wait to show you what we have planned. 😍

Of course, we will keep you updated about the whole process here on Kickstarter. But should you want to follow the process more closely, you can hop on over to our social media accounts where we regularly post sneak peeks and other cool stuff.

And please - if you haven't already - fill out the BackerKit survey we sent you so we can get you your rewards as soon as possible. Let us know if you haven't received your email yet (and please check your junk mail folder if you can't find it).

We wish you happy holidays and hope you have a few days off to relax, eat good food and hang out with people you like.
Whatever it is that brings you peace and joy, we wish you tons and tons of it!

Best wishes for the holidays, and for health and happiness throughout the coming year!

All the best,
Aleksandra, Martina & Selina

More loot with BackerKit!
4 months ago – Thu, Dec 12, 2019 at 03:09:20 PM

Hi everyone!

We’re happy to announce that we teamed up with BackerKit so you now have the option to get Add-Ons to your original pledge!

No matter what tier you chose, you can add other rewards for a surcharge depending on the extra merchandise you want to get. 🎁

🚨 Within the next 24 hours, we will send the BackerKit survey to the email address you provided to Kickstarter. 🚨
If you do not receive any emails from us in the next 48 hours, check your spam folder and contact us via Kickstarter or "info@letters-game.com" if you also can’t find it there.
PLEASE NOTE: You have until the 1st of March to get any additional goodies before we close the BackerKit Store!
So please fill out the survey as soon as possible. Just click on the survey link in your email, answer the questions about your reward preferences, add your shipping information and purchase add-on items if you like.

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

The store also works for people who came late to the Kickstarter party btw. So tell your friends about it too, even if they didn’t back the project.
You can share the BackerKit Store on facebook, twitter and email through the survey or send them the following link:
https://letters-a-written-adventure.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

To make it accessible for more people we also included the option to pay via PayPal. 😊

The survey will be quite self-explanatory, but we still want to answer the two most frequently asked questions about BackerKit here:

Do I need to create a BackerKit account?
No, just click on the survey link and use your Kickstarter login credentials. If you used Facebook to log in to Kickstarter, the survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account.

What if I made a mistake or want to change anything in the survey?
You can change your responses or your address at any time until we close the survey on the 1st of March.
If you want to review your information, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or find it by typing the project's name into this form: https://www.backerkit.com/are_you_a_backer


I have more questions!
Check out BackerKit’s FAQ here:

If you don’t find your answer there, feel free to contact us on Kickstarter or “info@letters-game.com

Thank you for filling out the survey! And remember we’re still here for you should you have any questions or feedback for us. 💚

All the best,
Aleksandra, Martina & Selina
