Backer Reward Descriptions


$9
KYNSEED CLOSED BETA ACCESS + STEAM EARLY ACCESS KEY

At this tier you’ll get entry to the Kynseed closed beta (available 29th April) as well as the Kynseed Early Access on Steam when released. We don’t have an Early Access release date just yet, but in the meantime you’ll be able to play and enjoy the closed beta.

$13
YOUR NAME IN THE CREDITS + DIGITAL ART PACK

Back Kynseed at this level and we’ll put your name in the credits for all to view in wonderment. This tier level also gets you access to a pack of digital art which includes a myriad of wallpapers in a plethora of resolutions, extremely hi-res posters, as well as animated GIF’s for all your internet needs.

$19
DIGITAL SOUNDTRACK

Kynseed is a world as musical as it is beautiful. At this level you’ll get a full uncompressed digital copy of the soundtrack.

$25
DIGITAL QUILL LORE & ART BOOK

The land of Quill is rich with history and legends. We’re taking world building very seriously with Kynseed and we’ll be packing as much of that world into the Lore Bible as we can. In it you can expect details on creatures, the history of each region, and character origins. Even insights into the mysterious Fae Realm and its inhabitants – including the enigmatic Mr Fairweather. Also included in the Lore Bible is the Art Book which will contain high resolution versions of many of the images made and used during Kynseed’s development including beautiful concept art created by the legendary Mike McCarthy.

$33
DEV FORUM & DEV STREAMS

With this tier, you’ll get access to one of our developer forums where you’ll see us discuss very rough draft areas of the game. We’ll turn to you for thoughts and feedback on things that we’re having a tough time deciding on and need player insights on. You’ll also get to download the Kynseed Closed Beta a day early on 28th April. Additionally, you’ll gain access to developer streams where you can watch a live feed of one of our desktops as we work on the game. Ever wanted to see a Bob Ross style stream of somebody using the actual tools to make an actual video game region? Then this reward is for you.

$66
ACCESS TO THE COMBOSPRITE EDITOR

Did you know that almost every tree in Kynseed is hand crafted and unique? That’s because we made a really cool developer tool called the ComboSprite Editor. With it we can take various game sprites and combine them together to make really interesting creations. At this level we’ll actually give you access to download and use the same ComboSprite Editor. It’s an incredibly satisfying tool to use and it’s surprisingly relaxing to just chill out and create fun things. And who knows, if someone makes something that we particularly like we might even put it into the game!

$100
A WANDERING FAE NPC NAMED AFTER YOU

In the land of Quill, there will be NPC’s from the mystical Fae realm who wander the land. Back Kynseed at this level and one of those NPC’s will actually bear your name or any other name you’d like to come up with (so long as us devs approve it for being cool to use in the game).

$200
PERSONALISED GRAVESTONE EPITAPH

As some Fable fans may remember, there were numerous gravestones scattered around Albion. Many times these gravestones had epitaphs written on them as easter eggs about various members of the development team. But as it happens, the Kynseed team is rather small so we need your help in filling the land of Quill with…well, graves. Back Kynseed at this level and we’ll get you to write a small bio about yourself which we’ll then use to come up with a personalised epitaph on a specific gravestone in the land of Quill that you can find and go to if you ever want to pay respects to yourself.

$325
A STATUE MADE IN YOUR IMAGE

Send us a picture of yourself or even of your significant other and we’ll make a statue based on that image! The statue will then be placed in the illustrious Hall of Eternity, a place of esteemed honour in the land of Quill. And to be clear, this is for an ingame statue as we don’t really fancy contracting sculptors for a life sized bust of yourself (though back us at $5,000 and maybe we’ll talk).

$650
CREATE A LEGENDARY WEAPON WITH US

Most games have Legendary Weapons and although Kynseed does too, there’s so many more types of Legendary items than just weapons. At this, our highest of tiers, you will work one on one with the development team to conceptualize, design, sketch, and even name a Legendary Item that every player will be able to use in the game.
