Rising Action

Posted by Craig Campbell (Creator)

Greetings, victims…  

In movie-making, “rising action” is the term used to describe the escalation of problems the protagonist deals with. It forces the protagonist to take action to overcome these obstacles.  

The past couple days have been a lot of fun for me, filled with rising action. Thanks for backing! And keep on sharing the game around. I’ve been astounded by the outpouring of love for such a weird little game.  

Social Goals  

Social Goal #1 – 100 Retweets - UNLOCKED  

We didn’t hit 100 retweets of that particular tweet I pointed people to. But that’s kind of on me. I hadn’t yet gauged how involved backers might be for something like this and I probably set it too high for the backer count we had at the time. But it got the word out. And there were lots of retweets of other posts I made. So I’m gonna call this one unlocked based on effort and total retweets across multiple posts. (These social goals are a learning process for me.)  

Social Goal #2 – 30 Favorite Horror Movies - LOCKED  

Next up is also a Twitter based thing. Tweet a pic of your favorite horror movie (bonus points for it being a horror-comedy movie) with a link to the Kickstarter and #DieLaughingRPG. If you want to say something in the tweet as well, go for it. Post yourself in costume. A screen shot of the movie. The DVD box. Whatever you want.  

Don't forget to tag it #DieLaughingRPG. 

If we get 30 such tweets, I’ll add two alternate roles to the game. Instead of being a producer after your character bites it, you can opt to be the agent for another player (trying to help their character survive) or a writer brought in to fix the script (with abilities that allow you to tweak the scenes, among other things).  

Backer Count Goals

Backer Count Goal #1 – 30 Survivors - LOCKED  

We’re well on our way to hitting 30 Survivors. As of this update, we have 14 backers between those levels. Soon there will be a horror tropes list in the game. I have faith.

Remember, if you want an extra game PDF or two, you can switch your current Victim pledge to one of those other tiers. (Or just stick with Victim if that’s all you want. That’s cool, too.)  

More Art  

Here’s a look at Creepy Demon Pain Guy, one of the monsters from the game. I had a little fun with how I presented the art this time.  

Game on,
