No other info so far, not even what the goal is.
But I'm excited.
Any thoughts? Can anybody translate it?

Based on exactly two players being shown in the picture (or one person with the weirdest elbows this side of an uncontrolled gate) I'm going to guess it's the improved two player rules Sandy finally relented on for this campaign.

Some users in the comments section of the kickstarter (Zain, Dumon)have come up with a very likely translation using letter substitution:

Two Player Rules
Two Player rules finally here

Give us your money
You love to give us your money

ASK

LOL! You're probably dead on there. Well spotted. Here I was trying to translate the text as it shifted about and straight up ignored the picture once I saw it didn't reveal any new items.

ASD"

I'm the one that translated it. Pitpipo confirmed it was correct.
And yes the final 3 characters were "ASD". Sandy's Cultist confirmed it and told us to figure it out. I'll try figure it out later.

Did Sandy confirm "ASD" to you privately, Zain?
Thing is, I haven't seen him explicitly CONFIRM that it is correct. He states that you did well in your translation, which COULD possibly simply ommit that you made a slight error on the ASD. And he also said he'd give us more time to figure ASD out, which also could be a tongue-in-cheek remark, hiding that it is not ASD.

I am just asking. In no way am I saying that "ASK" is correct - and my two attempts were fruitless, indeed. However, has it been confirmed directly and explicitly (to the letter) that ASD is correct?

Edit:
A few suggestions, if it indeed is ASD:
- Ask Sandy directly
- Arthur Sandy Duel
- Arthur shall deliver

It's an actual font. So the translation is correct

Ah, okay.
Pity, though...

Should change the windows font to those runes on all the work PCs, and watch as everyone panics...
You can too!

Edit:
Oh, and another suggestion. As fonts often fail to "encrypt" numbers (I don't know if this one does), the letters could stand for numbers.
A = 1
S = 19
D = 4
based on their place in the alphabet.

That would provide us with 1194.
Taking it as month and year would make no sense, of course. It COULD be 9th of November, at 4 (am? pm?). But that is a very far-fetched idea, I guess...

all (or most) of the font numbers just look like little 'o's. like literally a circle.

Autistic Spectrum Disorder... But I can't see how my disability can be linked to a stretch goal. Maybe if the GOOs are seeking a savant in the English language?!?
