Entering Phase Two
Well, we missed our goal by $680. The clowns are sad today! But that does not mean that they are not still out there... brooding... waiting... to rise again... in an alternate format?
We're scheming about making a CLOWNPOCALYPSE Wide-Release Beta available in a different format, one that might require less financial outlay at the outset. But during this regrouping and restrategizing phase, we'd like to know what formats might interest you, our cherished backers. Towards this end, we've concocted a one-question survey that we're hoping you would take a look second to answer.
We need you to complete the following sentence: I'd be interested in seeing CLOWNPOCALYPSE made available in the following format(s):
Follow the link for five checkboxes, and check all that apply. The whole exercise should take maybe ten seconds, but would provide us with really useful data about how to proceed.
And feel free to circulate the link among non-backers who might be interested, too.
Best, Jeremy (Lead Designer)
