Hi Metal Heroes supporters!

Unfortunately we can’t report a new stretchgoal today. Quite the opposite, in the last 24 hrs we’ve stopped dead in our tracks. It looks like the campaign’s lost a bit of its momentum.

Perhaps the circumstances these days are more difficult than expected. Therefore we could use your support to reach out to more gamebook readers, rock fans, comic enthusiasts and everybody else you can imagine on your social media sites, message boards, and band fan pages.

So many stretchgoals are waiting to be discovered!

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud!

4th Stretchgoal smashed! Day #7
almost 2 years ago – Sat, Nov 07, 2020 at 11:48:23 PM

Time for our next update!

One day, one Stretchgoal—that’s how we love it!

You guys smashed the HIT THE ROAD JACK goal, adding an extra 8-pages foldable copy of the Metal Journal. Here’s a preview of the item (only 4 pages of it): 

Next on the road is PAPERBACK WRITER at 6,100. This goal will add “real value” to the books by getting signed and stamped by ol’ shaky hands himself, yours truly.

BTW, the limited ROADIE pledge is available again, since one backer has upgraded to GOD OF ROCK. Even if it’s a bit back and forth, in this case I’m pretty fine with it! Congrats and thank you!

See you, Swen + FuFu

Next Stretchgoal passed! Day #6
almost 2 years ago – Fri, Nov 06, 2020 at 06:31:33 PM

Hey Heroes supporters!

Just a quick update: The campaign passed its next Stretchgoal this morning! With PAINT IT BLACK the book’s existing artwork will get three additional vignettes! Okay, FuFu, your job!

If you don't know, what a "vignette" is...

The next goal coming up is HIT THE ROAD JACK, adding an extra 8-pages foldable copy of the Metal Journal. However, due to their increasing value the gaps between the Stretchgoals will now be getting a bit bigger.

That’s all folks!

Funded! Day #5
almost 2 years ago – Thu, Nov 05, 2020 at 12:17:48 PM

Hey, Heroes supporters!

Today many things happened at once: First and foremost, we reached our founding goal of €5,000. Awesome!

This unlocked the Stretchgoals section. And the opening goal, at €5,250, was already surpassed! As a result, every book gets a bookmark in the design of a legendary Rock festival. Guess which one it is.

Secondly, the ROADIE pledge is completely gone. Which means nine cool cats have agreed to help us make Metal Heroes and the Fate of Rock even louder, by proofreading it before it gets printed.

And then I also want to give a big shoutout to the TRUE METAL HERO out there, who pledged for the highest tier possible yesterday! We are unworthy!

Last but not least, don’t forget the PRODUCER, who unlocked another bonus item to be included in all Special Editions. We will reveal this item at a later stage of the campaign.

That’s all for today! Please help to spread the word about this project to your friends and music pages by using this link:

Tour Book Diary Day #3
almost 2 years ago – Tue, Nov 03, 2020 at 03:00:50 AM

We’ve been on the road for two days now. The first gig was almost sold out! Can we play with madness?! Our manager says it shouldn’t take much longer until we’ve paid off the 5,000 bucks… yay!

After the show Brian wanted to have some fun with a chick from the catering staff, but instead he ended up exchanging knuckle sandwiches with her fiancé. Yeah, that’s Brian!

Well, let’s see how things develop. In any case, we’re motivated. If we keep on meeting fans as awesome as the ones we did in the last two days, I have the feeling this tour is gonna turn out frickin’ rad!
