Peeved Kickstarter by lightfootcomics Peeved Kickstarter by lightfootcomics
www.kickstarter.com/projects/s…

:iconsynaid: and I once did a webcomic that some of the long-term readers here might remember.  We've been talking about restarting it for a while, and it being a digital comic instead of a webcomic (the difference being that it's not posted for free, and the stories have a more consistent length maybe).

In December I started drawing the first 10-page comic based on a story written by Wolf.  We've been done for a while, but wanted to have some extra things, and debated the tiers and rewards for a while.  We're starting it now.

The basics are that the first goal is just for all of the backers (who pledge more than a certain amount) to get a copy of this first comic.  The stretch goals are to guarantee more comics, which the backers would also get (who pledged enough to get the first comic).  I don't know if the tiers seem unreasonable, but if you really figure it out per 10 page comic,  it's not that much (and I'm hoping that selling them separately later outside of the Kickstarter will eventually make it more worth doing per page actually, but that's probably true for anyone).

The comics will be sent through Kindle or Google Play.  BUT we have to add an extra page(s) to list all of the people who back it, so we can't produce the final file until after the Kickstarter is over, and after the normal submission times for each service.

The comics will be PG-13.  ...and I had a bunch of other things to mention in my mind, but can't think of them now.

If you wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate if you shared this information with other people.

EDIT:
Second goal reached.  Everyone who backs (and would get a comic) also gets the (not yet made) second comic.  27 days left, maybe it'll reach the point were backers would also get the third comic or more.  I have to make some more stretch goal buttons.

EDIT 6/29/14:
Third goal reached.  Everyone who backs (and would get a comic) also gets the (not yet made) third comic.  12 days left.

EDIT 7/10/14:
Fourth goal reached with 30 hours left.  Everyone who backs (and would get a comic) also gets the (not yet made) fourth comic.

EDIT 7/11/14:
Last update before it ends.  6 hours left, about 25% of the way to five comics.

Read the the first issue on the pdf file (was part of the kickstarted) and It was pretty good.  Since the kickstarted mentioned four issue being funded any idea on when the other issues will be released?

I'm glad you liked it.

I'm not sure yet about when to expect the next comic.  The next three comics are still in the writing stage, because how many issues were funded would change the scope of the first story arc.  There has been a big amount of work related to the KS itself (like pledge rewards), and that's kind of slowed things down.  We might release the next comics a scene at a time instead of a comic at a time if needed.

So kinda like a webcomic.  That's fine.  Will we be notified on kickstarter when another comic/scene is uploaded?

I assume like any comic with magic, the writer said to expect something in the second comic.  I don't know what exactly to expect myself yet, so I have to play it safe in what I say.  I doubt that it'll be a major focus, probably more of a small part of the comic.  I'd -guess- that Sena changes a random group of people, probably in ways they want.

Not in the first comic (with mostly just introduces Eve).  Probably eventually (like any comic with magic), but I can't promise when, who, or how much.

was Eve always based in Kyoto? Somehow I know feel like I've overlooked a (relatively major) detail. Asking a likely stupid question, but will there be any noticeable landmarks in scenery in the new comic? (Kyoto's somewhat unusual tower, Kyomizu Dara, the Inari Shrine, Daimaru, Takurazaka theater, etc...)

:iconlightfootcomics:
lightfootcomics Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014   Digital Artist
Yes, she was always in Kyoto.  I think it was mentioned in the original comic at one point, but maybe not.

Landmarks are possible at least at some point for a reason I probably shouldn't mention.  At one point I suggested using Google Maps to literally pick exactly the location of Eve's apartment, but we didn't (and maybe it's a good thing for reasons I didn't think through).

I'm sure that we'll make mistakes though, considering neither of us have ever been to Japan, or Kyoto.  It'll probably be better than the older comic though, sometimes I left out things I knew just to avoid having something confusing visually.

might be able to help with that some-certain things are near each other (Kyoto JR Station and Kyoto tower for example-the tower's a few blocks away from one of the major exits-for reasons I won't go into my dalliance in Kyoto involved frequent trips to Kyoto station, always passing the tower...though there is the underground walkway which connects to the tower's main building, that was a happy detour) for the rest only vague directions are required-trains are still a major methoid of transits, and like every other citizen of a city, I doubt Eve hangs around castles or shrines all day long...

Are there any major gaming areas or places people take dates traditionally?
Reply
:iconkeitaro-k:
Keitaro-K Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014
In Kyoto? gaming not as much as I saw, but the old capital is ripe with dating spots...Though Nintendo is based around Kyoto (not sure where precisely). I found Kyomizudara very romantic, though crowded at the time I went-the view from the balcony is terrific. for vague reference from Kyoto station-- with your back to the station-6 o'clock- and facing Kyoto Tower hotel (on which Kyoto Tower is built, an interesting engineering feat)-12 o'clock- Kyomizudara is somewhere between 2 and 3'o clock it's a pretty decent distance for a hike this way though...go up the direct way from the station you pass through a residential area, fairly modern housing, a temple with lush grounds and something of a moat like pond, a school, an estate or two (and a long wall) after which was a hike up a large hill with a massive cemetery (mostly to the right, there where several buildings on the left, merchants with incense stores, other things for a funeral or grave visit...) towards the grounds of Kyomizu proper there where graves on both sides, though judging by the crests visible from a fenced off area, I think they where some of the local Damyo during the Tokugawa era...if you go the other way there's a serpentine street leading up to the grounds filled with various souvenir vendors-wares ranging from chopsticks to katana... hope that helps....
Kyoto Tower's a pretty big date spot, at least at night, I'd say... There are plenty of parks in most cities, and Kyoto is no different. Strolls by the (many) rivers would probably be ideal too... and there are probably a lot of shopping dates near the Daimaru department store; the whole street is one big shopping melee (also nearby is one of the reported geisha houses, might be a realistic spot for something to happen wherein a snarky comment might be made about expecting too see a geisha or maiko) There is also a place that sells okonomiyaki around the corner too, though it's mostly a small place where the major offering is beer... the okonomiyaki is pretty spicy though (they go heavy on the mustard, etc... I went through several ramune to finish it-I don't recall how big Eve was on spicy things...or beer) The view from off the inari shrine (which is a bit of a mountain) was great near the peak-at night- and while I came across a few couples, I think the majority of people I saw where joggers... it's a bit creepy (especially when the foxes call out) in the dark but might be right up there with haunted houses or the 'courage tests' in terms of the idea that scaring a girl will bring on the physical contact... There's also Tea at nijo-jo garden---I think that was Kyoto... but I'm thinking that's more a tourist thing than a normal date thing

I'm kind of glad we didn't list the rate choices, then people weren't reading it twice, and had to do an extra click (or two to get past DA's firewall) when they went "ooh! Want that one"

1. I don't know how pateron works.

2. putting the different comics in two different places sounds like a good idea.

Patreon seems more like a subscription/donation system.  It's probably better for things like Pulse that are posted for free.  I've thought about that before, but there's always been some side thing where I wanted to wait for the results on that before coming up with any incentives.  Once the results of this are clear, I might consider it again.
