What's Coming and What's Needed
Hi again everybody,
We've passed the 90k mark and are headed to the first big milestone of 100k! You all deserve great commendations for that and for your continued support in this project.
But we're not done yet. We still have a ways to go and we have to reach out again for your help. We are reaching out to all of our channels, but we're only 10 people. Our backers, however, have us outnumbered by a large margin, and that right now is Pantheon's single biggest chance of success--you.
So what we're asking from you now is to reach deep into your contacts list and send a heads up to anyone and everyone you know as to what's happening here with Pantheon. There's nothing, absolutely nothing, that reaches as far nor as effectively as word of mouth. We can hit all the spots where eyes are looking, but if the eyes aren't looking there then we cannot reach them. Think about old friends you used to play MMOs with, or the second cousin who was into gaming as a teen, or even the neighbor who always showed interest in your gaming and has always wanted to check it out. Maybe the guy at the barber shop who talks to you about the games they play would want to hear about it. Everyone you think would have an interest in making this happen needs to know, and we all have to find them.
So I guess this is the first Pantheon raid, and it's zerg time! People all over the world telling friends, acquaintances, family about a return to the glory of classic MMOing. This could get pretty epic. A chain reaction the likes of which hasn't been seen since Karnor's Castle. If you can get them here and they decide they're not interested - that's on us. But let's get them here.
As for us here, we're also making a pledge to you to get out around the Internet much more than we have in the first two days. We want to talk to you on your own home turf. If there's somewhere where Pantheon is being talked about and we're not there, we need to know! Post it in the comments, message us through Kickstarter, we'll get out there and answer your questions as best we can. This journey isn't just that of Visionary Realms, it belongs to all of us, and we want to get to know you.
And in Other News...
We were planning on a Q&A for you today, but we ran into a little snag, so we'll be posting that video tomorrow. Lots more of the questions answered in that vid, so you won't want to miss it.
And then Friday we will be revealing our first launch class. What could it be? Come back Friday to find out.
We are also planning on some other cool ways to get you involved. Details have to be worked out yet but it should be pretty fun for everyone. Stay tuned for more info on this.
Until then, thanks so much from all of us here. This is really happening!
