We would just like to say a huge thanks to everyone who took the time to pledge their support. We really enjoyed the whole Kickstarter experience and were completely amazed at the generosity, interest and support. Not only did we see a rapid increase in sign ups, but the level of interest from teachers, parents and children has given us the momentum to carry on. We had well over 11,000 new memberships created during our Kickstarter campaign: a number that is continuing to rise.
Kickstarter highlighted that we give away too much for free. We are really thrilled with the increase in memberships and will continue offer children and schools a free membership option, but we've decided to expand our virtual universe to offer a premium membership package. We by no means see our time on Kickstarter as a failure - we gained a great deal of exposure for Pora Ora.
Premium membership will allow us not only to fund future developments, but will help us to further establish Pora Ora as a reputable online educational game. We are pursuing other avenues in terms of funding but will remain completely committed to Pora Ora by developing with new worlds, apps and features. If you would still like to show your support why not sign your child (or a friend's) up for premium membership (coming very soon) - we promise that they won't be disappointed!
Once again we'd like to give a big thanks to everyone who helped us along the way. Please continue to show your support by 'liking' us on facebook and following us on twitter. Keep up to date with the goings on at Pora Ora, and have a look at some of child friendly activities on our blog.
