As per the Unsung Story Kickstarter, there are a number of Consultants and other Contributors who are going to work more closely with Playdek and the development team on certain aspects of Unsung Story. Specifically:
- Behind-the-Scenes Adventure (Art) / Art Consultant - 70 Backers
- Behind-the-Scenes Adventure (Design) / Design Consultant - 187 Backers
- Build the Adventure / Design NPC, Building or Weapon - 5 Backers
- Become the Adventure / Your face as an NPC or Soldier - 4 Backers
- Total: 266 Backers
Since Unsung Story is still in its early development phase, it's understandable if none of this is happening now. However, in order to make sure this all is planned for and won't cause problems in the future, I thought it would be worthwhile to ask: Shyla, is there a timeline or process planned for engaging these backers in their respective roles?
I think for the latter two (Build the Adventure and Become the Adventure) the numbers are small enough that these people can be reached out to individually. However, for the Consultants it doesn't seem viable for Playdek and the Development Team to manage personal communication with 200+ people at once. Would some kind additional forum board be the best way to have Consultants communicate with the Development Team?
And until whatever process for Consultants and Contributors begins, is there anything we can do from our end to prepare?
I think it would be worthwhile to start threads for people to share their ideas for these areas. Here's a question for everyone: who on the forums is a Consultant or Contributor? I'm a Design Consultant myself.
