Nanoo Nanoo Turf Geographers,
We're nearly 24 hours from the finish line. Apologies for the lull in the updates and festivities. The programmer and myself have started the process of stirring the beast! We've taken to poking it with sticks.
As an update before the grand finale I wanted to reveal one of our $1000+ pledges. As you may know, for pledges at this level we'll be creating custom in game landmarks which are rare, beautiful, majestic creatures in their own regard. Landmarks will have unique game mechanics and may grant special rewards for visiting them.
One of the first landmarks to appear in Turf will be the Pepsi Cola sign in NYC. To be exact, this wonderful beacon of cheer resides across the river in Long Island City. Taking a walk across the water will yield a magical trophy of great power. We at the Turf Geography Club would like to salute Pepsi for their foresight in supporting our fledgling project.
Thank you all for your support and well wishes. We're working hard to make a game that will be off the charts fun! Live long and prosper!
Well Turf Geographers,
Today means we're four short moons from reaching the end of this loller coaster. My what a ride it's been. If you feel like I've been showering you all in thank yous then prepare yourself - THANK YOU!
I'm spending my sunday crafting our first in game landmark which will be revealed very soon. Also, since we've hit our target our lead Enginerd has started her development processes a week ahead of schedule!
Please spread the word. We're in line with our final push towards the finish line and every bit helps us create a better Turf.
Good morning Turf Geographers,
Thank you all so much for the massive push that we've had to get Turf going. Some pledged and others spread the word. No matter what you did it took the collective might of everyone to get us to this point. I don't mean to get all existential on you but without this kickstarter none of this would have happened. I humbly thank you all.
So you may have noticed that there was a rather large jump in the last week. Beneath a bright moon, in the night, I was contacted by two institutions that had seen the project and were interested in getting involved at the $1,000+ mark. One has chosen to remain anonymous and the other will be revealed in due time. However, both will appear in game with gleaming glowing awesome landmarks.
If you have any other questions please direct them our way. On behalf of myself and the programmer we thank you ten, twenty, thirty million times!
Well Ladies and Gentlemen (Geographers),
We're down to 10 days to go with a rather large push ahead of us. I don't want to interrupt your monday morning ritual, but I was hoping that today at the water cooler you might drop Turf in the conversation. Better yet, direct your fellow cubicle mates to this very Kickstarter, tell them we've got the inside scoop on some juicy play-offs info!
On a less zany note we have nearly 10k to go in 10 days and I urge you to not lose hope yet. I've got a few tricks up my sleeve. It's going to take a might of gusto but we can do it.
Never Back Down, Never Retreat!
