Nearing the Goal
The Havoc Fox Kickstarter went live this month and we’re growing ever closer to our goal! We still have a long way to go in the next couple of weeks; help us reach that goal before time runs out!
Kickstarter Progress Update

Within the first two days, Havoc Fox reached half of its $20,000 USD goal! The following days have seen a decline in activity, but progress is still being made and we’re still on track to succeed if we keep the momentum going strong. At the time of writing (on July 11th, apologies for the late report), the Kickstarter has received $13,141 USD from 139 backers. With two-thirds of the funding done and one-third of the campaign left to go, the goal is still in our sights!
The Havoc Fox demo associated with the Kickstarter has seen its first update as well, fixing up a few reported issues with both Miracle City and the Ulysses dance fight. If you haven’t played the new demo and were hindered by these issues, I encourage you to download the update! Even then, we still have one more surprise planned before the campaign is done. Keep your eyes peeled for our next demo to check it out!
Across the 139 backers, we’ve seen a wide variety of the available rewards taken. Out of the backer reward tiers, we have received:
-1 $1 backer
-7 $5 backers
-50/50 $15 backers
-10 $20 backers
-4 $30 backers
-14 $40 backers
-8 $50 backers
-25/50 $100 backers
-4/10 $300 backers
-7/10 $500 backers
-2/3 $1,500 backers
-0/1 $5,000 backers
For those of you who want to see yourselves (or your designs) in the game, we still have room! With 25 cameos, 6 enemy designs, 3 hub characters, 1 miniboss, and 1 stage boss still available, you still have a chance at being a part of Havoc Fox! However, you may want to act quickly if this is your goal; less than half of these rewards are still available!
We’re in the home stretch! If you haven’t done so, it would mean the world to us if you could back the project! If you can’t, you can still show your support by sharing the campaign with others. Every bit helps!
Current Development Update
This month, we’ve finished up the initial Kickstarter demo.
Unfortunately, there isn’t too much to talk about with this month’s game progress report. With all of the demo’s features ready by last month’s issue, the work done since then has been focused primarily on bug testing and fixing. While there isn’t anything new to discuss, it has been quite the busy month! Across five different builds of Havoc Fox, we have found and corrected over 100 different issues to make the experience as good as we could get it for the Kickstarter campaign!
While we won’t disclose it just yet, the rest of this month’s work has been put into developing and designing another secret boss! Enjoy this preview while we work on finalizing the encounter; it will be available for you to discover soon!
