Welcome to Tyme
So this is what over a decade of art and accumulative research & thought comes down to. Here, the epicenter of BraveControl©. I welcome you all to Tyme and the splendor it entails.
Wrapped up in the most simplistic nutshell as possible, BraveControl© is the attempt to retell the ancient old message in terms and references we can relate to best in the modern time. Throughout the history, philosophers, physicist, scientists, monks or any other being we consider great and inspirational tells us that the divine answers lay within and we are a part of something more grandiose. They try to get us to come to terms with such answers through parables, comparisons or in length, allegories. A truth woven by many different languages and many different perspectives. BraveControl© creates a new conversational allegory for our time. This Tyme (Tyme meaning human consciousness & knowledge as a whole.) A new twist of an ancient idea. Given the nature of BraveControl© I found it exciting that the revisiting of this mesage centuries in the making, launches on the date that is believed to be the resurrection of thought and knowledge in our own Tyme. Besides the greatest of instructors, "Life," BraveControl© is a mass research and study derived from some of the works and minds associated to The Secret®, 3 Magic Words®, Landmark Forum® I Am®, What the Bleep Do We Know?® and many other discoverers of the bigger picture.
The Resurrection of Tyme Novel
This is the first (1) of four (4) large scale graphical literatures each depicting a piece of larger meaningful moral.
Each character depicting a human characteristic while the world around them (Tyme) represents all possibilities and situations that have or can happen. The story is not so much the events leading up to a grand finale, but more so how the events & grand finale are experienced differently by each of these unique characters.
The novel The Resurrection of Tyme follows two beings that experience Tyme vastly different. Friends that are forced to experience the last events on Tyme, left to be played out. Join them as they race from the beginning to the end, through, in-between, and completely out of all Tyme. Hunted by apostles from Before Tyme and threatened by the last event to come. The Past has forgotten & the Future refuses to remember. What moment do you live in? ...Welcome to Tyme.
BraveControl© will be the first allegoric story of the modern age that explores the possibility and reality that transforming perspective and power never belonged to just the main protagonist. Nor the gang of super teens, or legends of biblical proportions, but within you… The exact same tale each of you will read will not hold the same experiences. It is our ability to see the differences within the same reality that give us this "super" ability to live and see reality as we wish. The BraveControl© experience is open for interpretation. A story where all interpretation is correct. A singular account of all accounts. BraveControl© easily includes the reader’s perspective on what’s truly happening in the novels.
Eve of New Thought Not Only for the Mayans
This launch will not only commemorate the dawn of new consciences according to the Mayans, but it is a new age for digital literature according to BraveControl© as well. There will be many features that make BraveControl© stand out among the rest, but it is my personal pleasure to present a few of them now…
~BraveControl© Hyper Balloons®
How did Stan Lee do it without?! Because of technology we can save time and maintain story flow by using BraveControl © Hyper Balloons® Throughout BraveControl© Some text will highlight blue serving as a hyperlink pop-up sub balloon containing back story info, story current bios or simply fun story enriching facts. With Hyper Balloons® long lost friends can meet up in the graphical literature world and not sacrifice panels and pages catching up for the sake of new readers' back knowledge. A Hyper Balloon® here, a Hyper Balloon® there and reader's can easedrop at their own leisure and reading pace.
~BraveControl© Focus Panels®
Focus Panels® allow readers to appreciate artwork that was previously out of focus in certain panels throughout the print & digital novel. Focus Panels® add a new depth to digital storytelling without taking away from the dialogue. Some panels have up to three planes of sight, revealing unseen art! This feature also allows us to more effectively direct eye flow and story deliverance.
PrespectiveMode® will unite all readers great and small alike! This feature presents three different reading modes to select from before enjoying BraveControl©. Because of the flexibility of technology we give you the choice to read the story in Relaxed, Seasoned, or Allegory mode. Each setting will change the vocabulary difficulty at key narrative points according to reader’s pre-selected choice. Never has the same story meant so many things!
~BraveControl© BookMarker® Wardrobe
This will change the digital reading experience forever. Only while enjoying a BraveControl© digital novel will you be rewarded for showing further interest in the graphical literatures you dive into. BookMarkers® are awarded and unlocked for reaching certain milestones! Milestones in the literary terms for example could be reading the novel in less than 3 weeks… Congratulations, the Tyme Flies BookMarker® Unlocked! Found and Interacted with all Focus Panels® in the novel…? The Stay Focused BookMarker® Unlocked!! Read the novel in all three Perspective Modes…?? Inquisitive Reader BookMarker® Unlocked!!! BookMarkers® create a chance for readers to acquire and take with them more that just memories and insight from a good read. You can have bragging rights for your above and beyond participation, a trophy for that second glance, things to show off in your book clubs! The milestones are plentiful, assuring this an instant classic within the genre.
These are but a few innovative features that build up the BraveControl© digital experience. Many other features will be available to unlock in the digital release of the publication. As a creator it was imperative that the reading experience remains just that. A stellar reading experience. At times the story's message becomes lost in animations, and other flashy gimmicks. I would only be doing you all injustice by diluting BraveControl© into just a motion graphic novel. With all features of BraveControl© I only try to emphasis the ideal of involvement and positive inflection. BraveControl© is only as grand as the audience that feeds it its energy.
A notion everything making up this reality is divine, and full of infinite possibility rest within us all, is a strong focal point of BraveControl©. This notion that a story is only as accurate as the readers’ that interrupt it. Hence TymeMarks® These are personalized artist renditions of you surrounded by your goals and ambitions! From different philosophies and beliefs throughout the world, it is believed once you surround yourself with things you hold dear, more of those same things will be relevant and attainable in life. A TymeMark® creates an illustration of exactly this! They are provided to visualize and enjoy somewhere else besides when you close your eyes. A BraveControl© TymeMark® allows you to always have a creative twist on what makes you joyful and passionate.
Furthermore these TymeMarks® will be placed on the BraveControl© Atlas of Tyme. A digital atlas of the events portrayed in BraveControl©. Only available within the digital edition of BraveControl© novels. A place to remind those of your great deeds and goals. Think of it as a positive Wikipedia, a type of social encyclopedia where you don’t have to be famous, inventive, criminal, or a silver-backed Tanager to be considered documentable. It is where only one brief positive synopsis, and one modest TymeMark® is necessary. The main drive behind this concept besides the positive outlook it is proven to give, was me always wondering why we receive a short summation on our gravestone after death, but never one while living. Here is a chance at your own digital “lifestone.”
Lastly, because of how general the literary meaning of BraveControl© and the straight forwardness of the events that take place, it allows me to include any perspective into the story without changing the plot itself, since BraveControl© is a generalization of all stories, all Tyme. For example, the world can end but everyone’s diaries will read very different accounts of the event. By including TymeMark® character perspectives (artist rendition based off you and your provided goals) into BraveControl©, it gives different vantages points of the same massive story. Not your conventional “cameo” appearance or your “sub-plot” issue guest star role, but a trailer excerpt of BraveControl© itself featuring you. This excerpt will be an alternative vantage point account just as valid as even the portrayed protagonist. What makes BraveControl© stand in a Tyme of its own is the acknowledgement of you and your story.
IMPORTANT*** In all legal aspects in having your TymeMark© character included in the Atlas of Tyme and thus subject to appear in a BraveControl© trailer excerpt, only allows use of your likeness and general characteristic to drive an exciting excerpt within the world of BraveControl© The trailer will focus on different vantage points of the main plot events of The Resurrection of Tyme & following novels. Having a TymeMark® submitted into Tyme does not guarantee a solo excerpt. Names and any further likenesses can be included upon further discussion between creators and you if TymeMark account is subject to creation. BraveControl© TymeMark® Excerpts will become more readily available throughout the BraveControl© experience.
I have been rewriting and researching the story and allegoric events within the BraveControl© drama for over twelve years. It began as an accumulation of some of the greatest dramas told within our generation. It soon morphed into a depiction of life experiences. Yet it ended up being something greater than I could have ever imagined or be able to explain in words altogether. This idea ended up being a common place for thinkers and revolutionaries all the same long before myself. The timing in the capabilities, in being able to reach out to the many who also see that there may be something under the surface and in the wonderful communities like KickStarter for providing venues of creation such as this counldn't be more perfect.
I ultimately hope to separate the trifle details of race, religion, creed, status, birth order, or sex from the deeper detail of our connection with something bigger than ourselves and each other through modern allegoric storytelling. By using modern language and ideas to shift old meanings and traditions I intend to re-share old concepts. Regardless whether you enjoy this re-telling for its surface beauty or for its core message, BraveControl© is surely a story for all, about it all.
It is a pleasure to relay that every single pledge will go behind the swift Kickstarter boot of the BraveControl© launch. Whether it will be the couch change for a single leave-behind-copy at a coffee shop, or a trillion dollars towards the expression of BraveControl© across other planned forms of media and entertainment (Including future novels, video games, film and animations.) it will be properly utilized. At this point in time, The Resurrection of Tyme novel is 26% complete. The digital systems and features are being developed. Due to the solid confidence and high interest around BraveControl© and its concepts, your support will start the snowball of fueling the marketing, print production, digital programming, overall fulfillment, custom product designs, and the creative/IT coding talent of BraveControl©. The hardest part of a meaningful journey is the first step. With your needed support I will shave years off the completion and deliverance of BraveControl©. Every supporter that pledges during this Kickstarter campaign is to have expressed credit in all future BraveControl© enterprises. Your open support will be a founding principle in all that is BraveControl©
But more importantly your support and interest will contribute to BraveControl© as a growing story as a whole. Thou your pledges today will not go unappreciated, your participation tomorrow will never be forgot-
All shipping must be added to your pledge on your own accord. To hopefully make things easier I have provided a world map with cost from each region. (These are just FedEx estimates. Each shipping price will be adjusted according to each international supporter's needs, situation and preferred courier.)
Risk & Challenges
“Why not go out on a limb, isn’t that where the fruit is?”
Whether this is an ingenious artist perspective or an uncanny business model, risk and challenge cannot be unaccounted for. Every major production has them, some more prominent than the next of course. They all need to be planned for the details should never matter all the same. Especially when there are great creators, supporters, lessons and positive impacts at stake. I can ponder what if the demand for TymeMarks® rapidly exceeds current artists on staff? Yes. Might there been a bug in the first new release of BookMarker systems? Perhaps. Will I not be able to shake everyone's hand that made this possible? Of course not. But regardless of the risk and/or challenges around BraveControl©, it will be a successful positive experience that doesn't end here...
~Updates Will Be Provided
~Comments & Questions Are Welcome!
~Digital Edition Will Have Updates
~Print Edition Available in Spring

What makes BraveControl© great is the openness to possibilities. If we were to have it our way, there would be a shipping employee BraveControl© supporter whose pledge would be to get all rewards to you cheaper and faster… But that moment has yet to come. What will happen in this-
~BraveControl© will continue to seek more cost effect methods of delivery. An update with any changes regarding this matter will come once found. Also depending on the logistics I would like to return any shipping funds to those who did not need the full amount to recieve their rewards.
~If supporters stumble across their own personal means of shipping (accounts/discounts/employment etc.) BraveControl© will send you your rewards according to your wishes.
But of course! The suggested monetary value of the paperback & full interactive digital edition of BraveControl© The Resurrection of Tyme would be $45.
