Hello storytellers – it’s time for a major reveal regarding Campfire Blaze. Here goes nothing.

Overview

Campfire Blaze will be a web application that perfects what Pro set out to achieve. It will encompass all of Pro’s features, and will add new content like cloud storage, collaboration on stories with friends, and a word processor for novelists. We aim for Blaze to be complete in summer/fall 2020!

Blaze will follow an add-on structure. This means that its features are broken up into bundles called add-ons, which are purchased individually. This allows you to only pay for the features you need, offering much more price flexibility. It also gives us the framework to continue to update Blaze with new add-ons over time, based on all of your feedback.

Campfire Blaze will have a word processor!

Kickstarter

We are launching a Kickstarter for Blaze on August 15! It will have a demo video and our designs for what the software will look like in detail, as well as a ton of great deals you can get by donating to the campaign. While we don’t need the Kickstarter money in order to fund Blaze, we thought it would be great to use the platform as a means of tracking the project over time and offering significant discounts to you guys in return for supporting us early in the process.

Pricing

We have locked down Blaze’s pricing! Here’s a brief description of how it will work:

Add-ons are purchased individually. Only pay for the ones you need! Furthermore, each add-on can be used in four ways:

  • FREE: All add-ons can be used for free, but with limited functionality that depends per add-on. For example, if you’re not paying for the Characters add-on, you’ll be able to create and use 10 characters. This is a per-user limit, not a per-story limit.
  • MONTHLY – Pay for the add-on on a monthly basis, and cancel whenever you don’t need it. You’ll still be able to view all the work you did in that add-on if you cancel!
  • YEARLY – Get 2 months out of every year free by paying on a yearly basis.
  • LIFETIME – If you know this is an add-on you’ll be using for a long time, and can commit to paying 3 years of it up front, then you have it for life. No more recurring costs.

Discounts for Pro Users

All Campfire Pro users who purchase before Blaze’s release will receive 3 months of free access to all of Blaze’s add-ons, in addition to any other discounts/deals that are acquired via the Kickstarter.
