December 21st, 2015 - Independent UK studio Rebellion delivered a Christmas surprise to backers of PC action adventure Woolfe - The Red Hood Diaries by announcing they’d shipped a beautiful custom-made Boxed version and Hardcover Artbook to appropriate backers on the game’s Kickstarter page.
Woolfe was successfully crowdfunded in 2014 and saw a Steam release in March of this year, but physical rewards and add ons were never shipped before the game’s developer Grin filed for bankruptcy in the summer, leaving those who'd paid for certain rewards high and dry.
It was then that Rebellion came to the IP’s rescue by acquiring Woolfe and promising to honour all backers' outstanding physical rewards.
And while they were able to ship some smaller rewards - such as posters and stickers - right away, the studio quickly realised it would need to design the Boxed version and Hardcover Artbook from scratch.
As detailed in a short video with Head of Art, Chris Payton, Rebellion have worked hard to produce, pack and ship the final rewards just in time for Christmas in what will hopefully be a welcome surprise to the project’s most loyal backers.
Published in just one small print run exclusively for backers, Rebellion hopes the Boxed version and Artbook will help draw a line under the project’s harder times, and give backers a rare and small piece of gaming history!
