We are starting our Kickstarter campaign for Campaign Trail on September 16. http://bit.ly/campaigntrail2015

As part of our campaign we want to include some backer influenced characters in the game. However, we are unsure how to approach this. We have two options - 1. have backers pledge to have their picture put in the game or 2. have backers pledge to help create a character by providing a character description and background story that our artist can use to create the look of the character.

We would love to hear your thoughts. Please complete the following poll and let us know what you would prefer as a backer. And as always, any comments and/or feedback are greatly appreciated.

Poll
How would you (as a backer) like to influence and create the characters in Campaign Trail?

I like both options, but I think the caricature would be preferable.

Both sound good to me. Just be sure that you phrase your reward correctly to establish that you will maintain artistic control over the result. See here for a lesson in not thinking this through very well...

If you're asking for a premium for this, then I think I'd rather pay for me to represented rather than my ideas. The 2nd option would work well as backer collaboration in the comments section though (similar to how Scoville sourced recipe name ideas).

Have you read Jamey Stegmaier thoughts now on custom art reward levels kickstarter projects now? It's an interesting read.
