Cut to the Chase is a small project that I have been inspired to make the best it can be. It has brought me joy to play and to hear stories of other's game experiences.
With this Kickstarter I want to bring it to as many people as possible with quality writing and quality art.
This is my first Kickstarted project and I don't know what I don't know. To help me through the process I have hired a consultant, Tracy Barnett. This will help me make an action plan for the campaign and fulfillment. Working with a large group of writers and artists can be a challenge. To reduce the likelihood of delays I got all of the writing of the core game completed before the campaign begins.
Work after completion of the campaign is already scheduled, the artist, Emily McAllan and editor, Blair Visscher have already planned the time necessary to complete their work. I will be doing the layout and will be able to coordinate with each of them to get the finished product to the backers on time. The project completion largely relies on me managing creatives and coordinating that work. If any one person has unforeseen issues including myself there is potential for delays and although I will work to mitigate potential delays it is impossible to guarantee.
