Thanks for the shout out, Tom.
And I can see why $250,000 might seem high if we were animating this ourselves, but most of that money (whatever isn't going to the backer rewards) is to pay animators from NG and elsewhere to be part of the team that brings these to life. We're treating this like a professional production which means talent should be compensated.

In between those two goals are a goal to make 3 months of shorts, and the inclusion of a plushy in some of the rewards. That jump isn't just for the two new episodes, there is lots of cool shit along the way.
