So much has been happening with the "Yin the Master of YO!" book. I had to share all of the good news with those who've supported my concept here on Kickstarter. Without your help and positive feedback I couldn't imagine where all this could go. Since successfully raising funds on Kickstarter, we've launched an app in the apple store based on the book and collaborated with YoYofactory to produce a limited edition Yin "Sureshot" yoyo. We also Launched our official Pixel Pirate Studio Website. Swing on over and see what has evolved from what originally was just a book concept. I am so grateful to each and every one of you for believing in my dreams and helping me spark the fuse.
If you don't have an iPod/ iPhone or iPad, you can try out the "Yin the Master of YO!" game app on our NEW SITE.
I know it's been a while, but I just wanted to keep my Kickstarter peeps in the loop. Thanks to your previous support, we were able to successfully print the YMY book, which was only the beginning. I'm not asking for any funding on this next project, only your feedback and support. I've just posted a teaser clip of our "Yin the Master of Yo" game app which will be making it's debut this holiday season. The video below still doesn't have all of the bells and whistles, but just enough to give you an inside peek. Take a look, leave some comments and spread the word. Once released, the app will be FREE (yep that's right FREE) to download to your iphone/ ipod touch and android. Enjoy!
Hello fellow contributors. It's been quite a long time and I'm hoping that you all are enjoying your books and goodies. I want to thank you all again for your support in our book project. We've managed to get the books into a few local bookstores and a few books out to a store in London. We've also gotten great reviews from the Yo-Yo community... YoYoExpert shop Carries the books and soon so will Throw-yoyo UK . Feel free to pick up future copies from there or the Pixel Pirate Studio Blog HERE! Also in BIG news we excited to announce that we are working on the Yin the Master of YO game app for your mobile phone.
