Update: Wohoo! they made it!!
Something wonderful is happening, a video game is being made from Japanese woodblock style prints and they are asking for your support.
The rewards themselves are freaking amazing – albeit niche – original hand cut woodblock prints. I personally want an 8-Fuji woodblock print for $50 (that is nothing, considering the original prints they did a while back now go for $200+).
Previously, they had a major success on Kickstarter with Ukiyo-e Heros (Japanese artwork of video game characters). The project raked in $313,341 of their $10,400 goal. It was a true rags to riches tale, a very low asking point and a very high turn out.
Video games get funded quite well on Kickstarter. The artwork on Edo Superstar is gorgeous. But this project only just made it, phew!
