Moving forward with Telepath Tactics

All right, guys! First thing's first: we didn't make our goal. That's unfortunate, but it's not nearly as bad as some folks think. You see, despite the fact that this campaign didn't "succeed," it was actually quite successful at spreading the word about the game. (How many of you knew about Telepath Tactics before this campaign started? Exactly.)

This campaign has also been extraordinarily successful for me, personally. I've gotten invaluable feedback about the sort of things you all care about in Telepath Tactics, and I've learned a whole heck of a lot about how to run a crowdfunding campaign. The next time I try this, we will make the goal! (Speaking of which: mark your calendars for March, folks!)

In the meantime, I'm going to keep on developing the game. To stay up-to-date on the development of Telepath Tactics (and snag any future demo updates):

Also, don't forget to keep telling your friends about Telepath Tactics: the more people there are who know about the game, the easier it'll be to make our goal when we make a second go of Kickstarting this sucker.

Thanks again for your support; see you in the Spring!

      This is the third RPG I've backed this year that's resolved to come back and try again, but like I told the other two (Deozoa and Dies Irae), I have every confidence that you'll be swinging stronger during round two. If absolutely nothing else, you'll be able to come out of the gate with enormous momentum from returning backers, which is as crucial a factor as anything in being taken seriously. Really looking forward to it.

      You have a great game and a great attitude! I know you'll make it next time, and I'll gladly support you again. Good luck!

      I thought this kickstarter would make its goal no problem, sure its no Wasteland or Shadowrun. But come on, by a dev that's already got his name out on the net quite a bit, shown he's committed to making great turn based tactics games and cited Disgaea and Fire Emblem as heavy influences. Where on earth are all the fans of those series at the very least? Dissapointing, well what's done is done. My money, it still wants to be taken!

      Craig, perhaps you could make an IndieGoGo campaign now instead? That way, no matter how much people pledge, you'd still get the money. There's clearly plenty of us who want to back this. I wish I could've afforded to back more myself. Backing something during the Christmas season when you've got presents to buy, during a recession, might have been a bit of a hard sell to some people. Just saying.

      I'll be waiting for a reboot kickstarter. Good luck working on the game.

      Good to see you haven't given up Craig.
      If you launch the second kickstarter I'll be waiting again with my 100 bucks!

      YAY! Go for It. Ill be with you!

      Sometimes when you make your goal lower and the project is funded within 1/2 of the deadline time, you can get 200%-300% of your starting goal.
      So sometimes when you set your goal lower, you get more money - people like to pledge to funded projects much more.

      Definitely next time. Congrats on the exposure.

      Don't forget to post an update here when you start the new campaign and I'll be happy to back again.

    11. Blackstaff on

      Nice news and great way to take this.

      Another try will definitely succeed :)

    12. James Yee on

      Well those of us at Kickstarter Conversations hope to talk to you again in March then!
