Life Imitates Art: Dating The Devil
First of all, let me just say THANK YOU EVERYONE for the progress we've made so far!!! As I write this we've crested $700 with 47 backers! I was very nervous for my first project but I didn't expect this turnout in 24 hours! I'm still a little nervous as we still have $1300 to go over the next 29 days, but oofda this was a great boost to the spirit!
I had planned on trying to compose a "traditional" first backer update, with budget plans, marketing campaigns, or other Rah Rah content, but today something very special happened. For a game about demons, we had a particularly blessed omen this afternoon.
I had put out on Twitter that we were at $616, and had an opportunity to hit $666, The Number. How cool would it be if Hell's Favorite Dating Game hit The Number during its funding process??? While I mused, I stepped into back to back meetings at my day job, but when I stepped out, I saw the magic. We had pushed up to the mark and we were at The Number. Seeing folks pumped over this milestone was the pep in my step for the rest of the day. My demon-enthusiast partner, Lauren, had been keeping an eye on the tally throughout the day and when she saw her chance, she jumped. She later texted me saying "No one but me could be The Devil Number" followed with a contented blushy face emoji.
We still have a long way to go but with Day 1 behind us and this good omen fresh in my mind, I'm so excited to bring Thirteen Demon Princes to life. Please continue sharing the word on Twitter, G+, Facebook, wherever you can so that we can continue to plunge forward into the Nine Levels of Hell and emerge victorious with a completed tome in our hands. Maybe we'll even smooch a few Devils to get there.
Below you'll find a few screenshots of the celebration on Twitter:
