Our most surprising ‘Alabaster’ tier: F-Laser!

Limited to only 30, our “F-Laser” backer tier runs for $110+ and includes two grab bag items on top of all the great stuff we’ve packed into the “I See You!” tier in our Kickstarter campaign to publish Alabaster vol.1-2 in English. This special grab bag tier is named after the device that causes so much trouble in both volumes of Alabaster, the laser gun that the protagonist discovers with the help of a scientist inmate who claims to have created it. Without the F-Laser, it’s pretty evident that Alabaster is a story that could’ve ended before it really began.

Because of the F-Laser’s nature, it creates some interesting-looking animals when they are put under its beam—if anything is left to see at all! In the spirit of surprise, we’re highlighting the F-Laser tier, which includes two randomly-chosen items for each backer! Of course, each backer will receive:

This tier is for all our lovely international backers or anyone in general who aren’t able to make it to YaoiCon 2015 but still want to experience some YaoiCon VIP treatment.

What’s a “digital companion”?

One of our backers asked in the campaign‘s first days, “What is a ‘digital companion’, anyway? What’s in it that makes it more expensive than the two digital volumes [of Alabaster] alone?”

What a great question! Since we’ve had several Kickstarter campaigns and we’re immersed in the lingo all the time at the office, we here at DMI sometimes forget to slow down enough to explain our recurring rewards to new backers who don’t always have the time to go back to our previous campaigns’ pages.
