Yes! Cellbloc Studios point-and-click adventure “SnarfQuest Tales” reached it´s $30,000 Kickstarter goal earlier today. And there is still +50 hours left to go as well. However, that is not enough time left for Cellbloc Studios to reach the “Maxwell Alexander drake” extended goal (as it´s $10,000 away). Nevertheless, it´s still a great day for everyone who has supported “SnarfQuest Tales.” So tons of congratulations to the team and all the backers!
“100% Funded! Telerie is here! We are still crazy busy at the DragonCon booth, but wanted to sneak in here and say Thanks to everyone who has backed us! Stop by the booth and get your picture taken with Telerie!” – Cellbloc Studios

This morning I received the happy news that SnarfQuest Tales is 70% funded on Kickstarter ($21,000 out of $30,000). And this is what Cellbloc Studios (the developers behind “SnarfQuest Tales”) had to say:
“Hey SnarfQuest fans,
Thank you for your interest in our game, SnarfQuest Tales. We wanted to let you know about a few fun SnartfQuest events we have:
Wizard World Chicago: If you’re visiting Wizard World Chicago this week, don’t forget to say hi to Larry Elmore. He’ll be at the Elmore Productions booth every day between Thursday, August 20 and Sunday, August 23.
Jon Bailey: The voice of Honest Trailers, Jon Bailey, has joined the SnarfQuest team to provide in-game character voiceovers. You can see more of Jon’s work on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/jon3pnt0 .
New SnarfQuest Tales Kickstarter Rewards: We’ve added three new limited tiers of original, published Larry Elmore SnarfQuest art to our Kickstarter campaign. If you want some SnarfQuest art to call your own, visit our Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2054625525/snarfquest-tales .
New SnarfQuest Tales Kickstarter Add-Ons: Due to popular demand, we’ve added the set of 11 SnarfQuest miniatures as a $20 add-on to the Kickstarter campaign. Visit the Kickstarter project at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2054625525/snarfquest-tales for more details.
Demo of SnarfQuest Tales: You can download the Free Demo of SnarfQuest Tales at http://www.snarfquesttales.com
See you soon,”
So a big congrats to the Cellbloc Studios team =) And at this time there is less than $9,000 missing (with 17 days left to go) on SnarfQuest Tales Kickstarter campaign.
I never thought that I would live to see the day when Larry Elmore’s (his a Dungeons and Dragons’ illustrator among many other things) comic character “Snarf” (as seen in the Dragon Magazine in the 1980s ) would get his very own game. It´s 100% true though, as Cellbloc Studios is working really hard on their point-and-click adventure game “SnarfQuest Tales” (for Windows, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Android and iOS). A game which just happens to be live on Kickstarter as well. Awesome indeed. However, SnarfQuest Tales needs to collect $30,000 in-order to become a reality.
I don´t doubt that SnarfQuest Tales will be successful on Kickstarter though, and that´s because of three reasons. 1. The game is already +50% funded, 2. SnarfQuest Tales got greenlit on Steam Green light not so long ago, and 3. There is about 27 days left on SnarfQuest´s Kickstarter campaign. So I highly doubt that the game will fail to reach it´s Kickstarter goal on time. Besides, it seems like the Gaming community (and the Snarf fans) is really eager for SnarfQuest. So I wish SnarfQuest Tales and Cellblock Studios the best of luck and fortune on Kickstarter!
