Campfire Pro’s FINAL UPDATE is here, and it’s HUGE

Hello storytellers, Today we bring you the most powerful update Campfire has ever seen. The Final Update is live, and it brings with it two major overhauls: the UI Update and the Worldbuilding Pack. UI Update The UI Update is a free upgrade that improves and streamlines Campfire Pro's interface. It finally makes Campfire Pro feel like the finished product we always wanted it to be, and adds loads of useful features like statistics, lists, and improved linking between different areas in the software. If you're running Campfire Pro on Steam, the update will install automatically. If not, you can install it here. Worldbuilding Pack The Worldbuilding Pack is an optional $25 expansion pack that adds powerful new worldbuilding features to Campfire Pro: species, cultures, languages, religions, philosophies, magic, items, and systems. We're really excited about this pack, as it allows committed worldbuilders to dive into their projects in Campfire with a level of detail that was previously impossible. If you already have Campfire Pro and want to purchase the Worldbuilding Pack, you can do so here. If you don't yet have Campfire Pro and would like to purchase them together, you can use our normal pricing page. We hope you're as excited as we are about these new updates! Now we'll be turning our attention fully toward Campfire Blaze. Remember that anyone who has Campfire Pro when Blaze launches will be eligible to receive a free 3-month subscription to Blaze! Best, The Campfire Technology team

Happy Campiversary: Big Updates Coming to Campfire Pro

Hello storytellers! Some of you may not know this, but today is the one year anniversary of Campfire Pro! Since October 1, 2018, we have worked tirelessly to update Pro according to our Roadmap and the feedback from our users. Though we have previously stated we concluded work on Campfire Pro, we are thrilled to bring you one more free update alongside a paid content pack. As you might remember, Campfire Pro is receiving another free update due to the overwhelming support of our generous Kickstarter Backers. The UI Update will be released on October 15th. Check out these screenshots to see how different the original version of Campfire Pro looked vs. how the final update will look! That’s not the only great thing coming on October 15th! We will also be releasing the Worldbuilding Pack, a one-time purchase containing features perfect for even the most hardcore worldbuilders. These features assist in the creation of languages, magic systems, species, cultures, religions, philosophies, systems, and items. As a big thank you to Campfire Technology’s early supporters, we will be sending out free license keys for the Worldbuilding Pack to Campfire Pro’s first 100 users. Be sure to keep an eye on your inboxes if you think that might be you! The Worldbuilding Pack will be available for purchase on our website for $25 USD (compatible with both Steam and non-Steam versions). Some of you might remember another one of our Kickstarter stretch goals, a new add-on for Blaze available upon release. The votes came in and we will be releasing the Systems add-on with the rest of our planned Blaze features at launch. Finally, we are looking for help! If you’re someone with experience in social media, graphic design, and video editing with a passion for creative writing or tabletop gaming, then we invite you to apply for the Digital Content Coordinator position. You can find all of the details for applying on the Join Our Team page. Thank you all for your support over the last year. We’re ecstatic to bring you these final Campfire Pro updates and to double down on Campfire Blaze! Now go work on those fantastic stories! The Campfire Team
