ARES KICKSTARTER OPENS NEW PLEDGE LEVELS
Mission Viejo, California (22 January 2014) – One Small Step Games announced new pledge levels for the Kickstarter campaign for Ares Magazine, a full-size magazine that will include 80 pages of fiction and other content that wraps around a pull-out and ready-to-play board game.
“We want to provide customers with a range of products to best suit their tastes, so we’re unlocking pledge levels to allow for that,” says Michael Anderson, who owns OSS Games and is editor-in-chief of the magazine.
The bulk of the new pledge levels are subscription-based, offering substantial savings over cover price. For example, the ITHACAN gives pledgers six issues of quality science fiction wrapped around a unique board game for $120, which is $60 off the cover price. The ATHENIAN was designed with collectors in mind: two copies of the first six issues for $235, a $125 savings off the cover price.
The campaign also unlocked fiction-only subscriptions plus many Canadian-only pledge levels, in which the price of shipping is less than that required for other international backers.
The Kickstarter campaign also offers various pledge levels featuring add-ons, some of which will only be available for Kickstarter backers. For example, a limited number of pledges of $750 or more will get a pledger’s caricature on a playing piece in War of the Worlds, the game included in the first issue.
