The Play’s The Thing is 400% Funded…and Climbing

Posted on

Wow. WOW. We are so blown away by the response to our first Kickstarter project. We hit 100% funded in just 2 days, 200% funding in just one week, and 400% funding in less than a month! Our backers are amazing!

But we aren’t done yet. In addition to all the awesome rewards that we’ve set out so far (softbound copies of the book, stickers, and signed prints), we’re launching a short fiction collection called By No Means Vulgar:

If we can get our total funding to $3,000, all backers will receive a copy of Magpie Games’ first short story collection, BY NO MEANS VULGAR, in eBook/Kindle/PDF format. Our backers who have pledged at least $50 will get a print copy of the book as well!

Featuring a range of authors and genres, the anthology will contain brand-new stories that will remix, extend, and reimagine Shakespeare’s works. Here are a few authors who are already onboard:

EDDY WEBB (Tales of the Far West, Close Encounters of the Urban Kind) will tackle a hard-boiled retelling of Hamlet in “I Knew Him.”

JESS HARTLEY (Buried Tales of Pinebox, Texas; Human Tales; Haunted) will expand on the relationship between Taming of The Shrew’s Kate and Petruchio in her tale, “My Reason Happly More.”‘

Please help us out by pledging on our Kickstarter page. This is a big goal and we can’t wait to smash it with the support of our backers!
