I’ve received messages from a number of people who backed our first Kickstarter campaign and want to move up to higher tiers in the new one. Yes, there is a way to do that! You can find the new Kickstarter campaign at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/transolargames/hero-u-adventure-role-playing-game/description.
First, if you’re moving from the old $20 tier to the new $50 tier, we have a big discount for you – Simply pick the $20 Double Time tier. You are already getting the game from our first campaign, and Double Time adds the hint book, soundtrack, and the “Making of Hero-U” art book (which is going to be BEAUTIFUL).
If you backed at the $35 level the first time, and want the rewards of the new $50 level, you do not need to do anything – We will give those rewards to everyone who backed at $35 or higher in the first campaign.
By the way, if you’re happy with the tier you supported in the first campaign, AWESOME – Thank you so much for supporting us when this project was just a glimmer in our eyes. There’s nothing else you need to do.
Let’s say you picked the $75 Senior level in our first campaign, but you really want the fancy Collector’s Edition with the t-shirt (or cap), lucky coin, Hero-Unicorn Varsity Letter, soundtrack CD, and key ring. That’s a $200 tier, so you need to add $125. To do that, simply choose the $10 Supporter tier, but instead of pledging $10, pledge $125.
After the campaign, we’ll ask about add-ons and upgrades and you can tell us you went from the Senior level to the Collector’s Edition level. We’ll also ask your t-shirt size.
Here’s a chart of upgrade costs from the original tier to the new $80 and $200 tiers. We are giving full credit to backers at previous physical tiers, and partial credit to those who previous chose digital-only tiers. That’s because shipping is included, and it’s very expensive for us.

We will also have some really cool add-ons that you can order “a la carte” in the new campaign. Just support the campaign at any level and add the price of the add-ons to your pledge. This time we’re including shipping costs in the price of each add-on. Check the first update to the new Kickstarter campaign for the available add-ons and prices.
By the way, I will mostly be posting public updates (you don’t need to support it to read them) about the Hero-U project to the new campaign, so check in there occasionally to learn what’s new with Hero-U. Here’s the update page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/transolargames/hero-u-adventure-role-playing-game/updates.
Also drop by www.hero-u.com occasionally to read Lori’s news emphasizing the Hero-U art and story.
