Hey Guys and Gals,
Wow, it feels like it's been a while since I last wrote something here. It's been an insane few months here, we've had a lot of Post-Production problems that caused delays but the show is nearly ready for launch, I can't guarantee the date JUST yet but we're looking at the first week of November for the release of the first arc.
What do I mean by first arc, well, we're doing ten episodes of My Life as a Video Game for the first season, and each "story arc" is set inside a video game genre, in this case we have three arcs this season, each with three episodes (plus the pilot makes ten).
These arcs are First Person Shooter (Call of Duty/Battlefield/Borderlands), 80s Arcade Beat 'Em Up (Double Dragon/Streets of Rage/Final Fight) and Space Combat Simulator (Starfox/Wing Commander). Each of these arcs will have characters we'll grow love and some bad guys and girls you'll love to hate.
We have plans for more arcs in the future but we settled on these three for this season as we felt they had three distinct visual styles, characters types and stories to tell as well as a wide variety of fans from when these games were popular.
On more news, our channel the LEON UNITY channel has now signed up with the Collective Digital Studio network to help promote and expand the show, but without you guys helping us out we'd never have made it this far which brings me to the next topic.
Physical Rewards; man was this harder than I thought. The first set will be T-Shirts and Posters followed a bit later by physical signed brentalfloss CDs and our DVDs, signed scripts and the art book. We're looking into a better way to do this right now but for now we're going to have to manually ship all of these to you guys and we want to try and get it done as the show goes into it's launch window.
We sent out a survey to get your addresses at the start of this year, fully expecting to be sending them in a few months. That was my mistake, as I wasn't quite fully prepared for the hellstorm that was going to be this production but I hope will all be worth it soon. Some of you might have changed address since then, if you have PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY, so we can make sure we get you the right size T-Shirt.
Looking forward to this guys. I hope you are too and if you've got any questions, shoot them down in the comments section below or shoot us an email at email@example.com
