Upped my pledge by another hundred dollars.

Meanwhile, I wonder whether I can make it to the end of the month on $3 a day.

Okay, let's try this again.

We need everybody to get as many of their gaming friends and family on this as possible.

Put up flyers on campus if you're in school- somebody will take interest.

My mom loves Quest for Glory, and she'd never heard of Kickstarter before I called her up about it.

I've roped in my old high school buddies who watched me play QfG on my laptop and laughed at the vorpal bunny.

I've convinced a half dozen RPG-loving friends who've never heard of QfG.

This game isn't for us, it's for everybody, and everybody is going to love it. So everybody should know about it. And if we want it, we'd better tell them. Let's all get in on this. Talk to people. It's a thing heroes do.

I've been doing what I can to get people to donate!

My brother refuses. Apparently he doesn't have an Amazon account and refuses to make one. Like.... seriously? Who doesn't have an Amazon account?

Oh dear, its not looking too bright for the Kickstarter.

I think its going to take a miracle massive pledge for it to survive. I must admit, without any playable demo or pre-alpha gameplay footage, I am still underwhelmed.

And I just watched the updated video and even Corey looks somewhat disappointed - can understand why. But it really looks like the Coles have asked for too much money.

Shame as my old nostalgic QFG loving side was a little hopeful that something good could come of this.

I wouldn't rush to condemn the Kickstarter Project. Cause only in the first day they made $100.000 or so if I remember correctly and there's about $150.000 missing now. And we have 6 days left.

And as far as the $400.000. Games are not made of air, and the Coles are not about to be making anything less than the greatest game they can make with the best support they can get. smile.gif

So we can't have the full pie and the dog with a full stomach guys. If we want a game from the Coles, we need to show it to them, plain and simple.

There's also at least one known person waiting until the end to donate enough to help reach the goal - I'm under the assumption it's a wealthy friend of the Cole's biggrin.gif But I know a handful of peopel do that - they wait until the end to decide if they want to donate a base $5 or chip in more to help reach the final stretch of the goal. Besides - most Kickstarters see the most life in the first and last couple days. I've got faith biggrin.gif

Also, if you've not donated $125 to get the meep pet, they've got it as an addon for $35 to any of the other tiers!

C'mon.

Meeps!

YES! MEEPS!

Just thought you'd like to see this.



We just got into the green in the last couple minutes, guys. We have five more days this good, and we make it. biggrin.gif

Wow you learn something new everyday biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif bounce.gif

Of course games are not made of air but if you ask for too much money and fail to attract the right investment, all you get is air! crazyeye2.gif
Just like what often occurs on Dragons Den

And thats my worry that the Coles may have asked for too much money. But hey if they are in fact in the green then fingers crossed.

Ooh! *claps hands* There's an idea! But... where would I get flyers anyway?

I would love to get in on a google session. Do I really need to sign up for Google+, or does the google chat function that's attached to gmail work?

But you also have to remember, this isn't just the Kickstarter for Rogue to Redemption either. That's the first one in the series. They're not planning to do a $400,000 Kickstarter for each game. I think they should maybe hype the "this is the first in a series" thing a bit more, but it's honestly not much to ask at all for basically starting a completely new gaming company.
