This Week in Kickstarter
Share this post
This week in Kickstarter, we made a video! Everyday we watch the videos you guys make, so we figured, well, we might as well try and take all the lessons we've learned from watching tens of thousands of videos and try to succinctly describe how to make an awesome video. It wasn't easy, but we had a lot of fun making this video, and so should you! Don't dread it, just do it!
Speaking of videos, this one for Jane Jensen's Pinkerton Road: "A Year of Adventure" project is....quite suspenseful. Let's just say that Jane and her collaborators went the meta- route and not only are they creating adventure mystery games but there project video is a mystery adventure in and of itself. Let's just say, we're excited to find out how this one ends.
And while we're at it, how could we not clue you into Magic The Gathering The Musical, which is exactly what it's title says it is. What the title doesn't tell you is that Jimmy Carter invented peanuts and started a moon base, that there is a really bad puppet ghetto in Atlanta, and that it's really easy to be interrupted when you are a puppet trying to explain yourself. Take a look.
And while we're busy watching videos this weekend, if you are in Boston chances are you will be busy playing games. Not gonna lie, wish we were busy playing games instead of eating quiche, but such is life. Anyway, if you find yourself at PAX East this weekend, be sure to pop by the Kickstarter room where a boat load of activities, including game demos, workshops, lectures, and more game demos are sure to keep you busy. Check out the entire schedule for Kickstarter at PAX right here.
