Hello Campfire storytellers!
We just had an update a few days ago, but we’ve got a little one ready to go again!
There was a small bug affecting the “Days in a Row” statistic on Steam. As a result, some users weren’t receiving related achievements. This update contains a bug fix for these achievements. We thank you for your patience!
Steam Update Details
We at Campfire are happy to announce our new refund policy: all customers who request a refund within 10 days of their purchase are guaranteed to receive 100% of their money back, regardless of the reason for their refund. We hope potential Campfire users will appreciate the policy as a way to test-drive Campfire Pro's features without having to worry about regretting their purchase in the future.
Requesting a refund is as easy as filling out the Refund Request Form, which asks for your name, email, Campfire license key, and your reason for needing a refund. Once you've submitted the form, we'll do a quick check to make sure you own the license key that you're attempting to get a refund for. After that, we'll send you an email saying that your refund is on the way. You can expect to receive the money within a few business days, depending on your payment method.
Keep in mind that once you've asked for a refund, your Campfire license key will be deactivated, so you'll lose out on Standard and Pro features.
Now that you know about our new policy, go take Campfire Pro for a test drive!
The newest version of Campfire (4.0.1) fixes some small bugs and rolls out two new themes: Simple Light and Simple Dark. Use these if the genre themes are getting overbearing, or if you just prefer to have the background be plain rather than an image. The new themes can be seen below:
We've also fixed some minor bugs in this release. These are not critical, though, so it's not a required update.
How to Update
If you own Campfire Pro or Standard, you will have recently received an email pointing to the new Campfire version. Download the ZIP file, extract it, and run the installer that fits your platform (DMG for Mac, EXE for Windows). If you're running Windows, uninstall the previous version of Campfire before you install the new one. On Mac, the old version will be overwritten automatically.
Writing Software “Campfire” Officially Released on October 1
Boston, MA: Northeastern University student Jason Louro & Wake Forest University student Jeremy Greer have officially released their innovative story-planning and outlining software named “Campfire”. Programmed by Louro, the software allows writers to properly organize their thoughts and outline their stories, while being flexible enough to keep their ideas completely unconstrained.
"Campfire is designed to help all writers in the prewriting phase. It comes with tools for character development, plot design, and worldbuilding, allowing novelists and screenwriters to plan out their stories before they start to write.” – Jason Louro (CEO)
Campfire is going to be released with three versions: Campfire Demo (free), Campfire Standard ($24.99), and Campfire Pro ($49.99).
“It has been an amazing journey thus far, being able to witness a concept actually be materialized and eventually released. It has been difficult at times balancing school work and other commitments at the same time as trying to start a company, but that makes it all the more rewarding for me and Jason” – Jeremy Greer (CMO)
About Campfire Technology: Though Campfire is currently the only software released by Campfire Technology, they are planning to develop a web-based version of the software soon. Additionally, they are always seeking to further improve Campfire and will be releasing updates consistently. To learn more visit: www.campfiretechnology.com.
