THE STORY

It was a cold clear night. I had lost track of the time while staring at the seemingly countless stars, cuddling with my favorite guitar. Despite being home, I was overcome by an intense feeling of being completely lost.

I was just about to close my eyes when suddenly ODIN, the All-Father himself, came to me in a vision. His booming voice exploded, "DANIEL! DUDE! wtf man..."

"Uhh... Odin?" my voice cracked.

"Yea yea, that's me. I need more Versus Video Games. You gotta make the next album, bro."

I must admit, I was taken aback. I had no idea Odin was a fan. No need for deliberation. It was decided from the moment Odin summoned my axe.

"It shall be done.", I replied.

"FUCK YEAH!" Odin belted out with enthusiasm.

"But there's one... small... problem.", I reluctantly explained, "...I'm broke as shit."

"Duh. That's why I invented Kickstarter." the All-Father calmly stated.

My eyes lit up. Of course! I think he may have been fibbing about being the creator of the website, but who am I to question Odin? And regardless, it was a great idea.

"YES! I will do it. I will create an album worthy of the gods!" I exclaimed.

"Sweet. Now hurry up, Ragnarok is coming and I already told Thor we could blast the new album over the sound system to get us pumped up." Odin said as he started to fade from my sight. "Oh, also, don't make it so good that we poop our pants. That kind of thing could get me killed by a dopey wolf or something."

I ran as fast as my feet could carry me to the studio, my mission clearer than ever.

This will be the one.

This is the album that will make the gods themselves poop their pants.

Kickstarter is all or nothing, so if you want this album to see the light of day pre-order it right here to make it happen!

Risks and challenges

The only risk is failing to reach the goal. Kickstarter is all or nothing so I would have to rethink how we can accomplish the project.

FOR VICTORY!
