Hello all,

As we come down to the last 12 hours of the fundraising effort here on Kickstarter, I wanted to take the time to thank all of you for supporting it.  Unfortunately, we won't reach our goal.  Your pledge will not be deposited.

Again, thanks very much for showing your support.   Please continue to follow the project.  I am proceeding as planned--little bit by little bit.  You can do so by liking our Facebook Page and watching updates on our blog.

Sincerely,

Alan D Morgan Founder, Planet Postmoderna

This is one reason among many as far as why we are trying to build Planet Postmoderna!   Most people don't understand the power behind virtual economies.  Those that do, do like the above.  

Helping right here on Kickstarter and right now will help make Planet Postmoderna a reality.    We are leveraging the very same technology, platform and methodology as this.

With video games, virtual economy equals real money – USATODAY.com.

“A recent survey by Park Associates found that while only 5 to 10 percent of the player base of social and free-to-play games regularly pays out of pocket, those who do pay are generous. The average Facebook gamer who spends money on games spends about $29 per month, according to the report. And those who pay for virtual goods and upgrades in free-to-play games average about $21 per month.”

Interesting statistics!

Planet Postmoderna will be using an active virtual currency within the game and virtual world. Entropia Universe has been using a real cash economy for quite some time. Amazing that the concept is just catching up and through casual games.

Local Startup Planet Postmoderna Launches KickstarterTM Campaign to Fund Online Game Phase 1

Indie game producer prepares to create first cash economy-based, virtual world game

to come out of Colorado Springs.

 

Colorado Springs, CO, March 22, 2012  Every day, thousands of online warriors, explorers and adventurers take to online games and virtual worlds to conquer, slay and compete against each other and to build their online personas. The cities, planets, worlds and constructs in which they participate are as diverse and creative as the players’ characters. The latest newcomer to the gaming scene, Planet Postmoderna, is currently in development. Game producer Alan Morgan and the Planet Postmoderna team have launched a KickstarterTM campaign to garner funds for the creation of Chapter 1 of the Online Game World of Planet Postmoderna.

“Project Planet Postmoderna is truly an ‘indie’ and an organic project,” said Morgan. “The concepting and initial ‘fleshing out phase’ was made possible through negotiating sponsorships and partnerships with several companies and lots of volunteer hours.” The KickstarterTM campaign aims to raise $200,000 in donated funds from supporters. The dollars raised through KickstarterTM will fund software, systems and time and support of the programmers and modelers on the demo-design team and will additionally pay for the marketing expenses needed to promote the game. “We estimate the demo will take 6-9 months to complete with the team working on it full-time. The final entry-level game (once investor funding is attained) will take a little longer but not by much,” said Morgan. “Our hopes, if we proceed with the initial plan, are to build Postmoderna as an additional planet within the game Entropia Universe under their Planet Partner Program, and that will take a little under 12-18 months to finish and launch.”

Postmoderna has been in the works since September of 2008, with most of the art and model work being accomplished over the last year.The game is set against the backdrop of exploration, discovery and colonization of a newly discovered alien planet–the first habitable one since long-distance space exploration was made possible and feasible. The fate of the colony is tied directly to both the efforts of individual users as well as the community as a whole.

The free-to-play, MMO (Massive Multi-player Online) game is based on a cash economy. Essentially, though the game is free to players, goods and property may be bought and sold with real money (similar in concept to Monopoly™ and a real-world economy). The Postmoderna world is planning to leverage the technology of the already existing, successful cash economy virtual world: Entropia Universe. “Postmoderna is a sci-fi game and virtual world designed with a tree of sub-worlds that are based on historical content married with historical fiction and unlimited sub-plot potential that will fun to explore and can even be used indirectly to learn about history in an entertaining way,” said Morgan. “Overall planet development and growth is based on the activities of the overall player base. If more players farm, then agriculture develops; if more build objects and equipment, engineering develops.”

The full goal to launch Planet Postmoderna and bind a planet contract with the makers of Entropia Universe is $1.8 million. Notes Morgan, “The Kickstarter campaign is Step One in the process of making Planet Postmoderna a reality.” He also adds, “the success of this project could also potentially put Colorado and Colorado Springs on the Media Arts and Games Industry Map.”  For more information about Planet Postmoderna and the Kickstarter campaign, go to: www.kickstarter.com and search for Planet Postmoderna.
