"Absolutely loving this. Even the promo material was artwork; it all resonates so well and is in a wonderful format. You're truly an artist, and the fruits of your labor were certainly worth every painstakingly beautiful line of code. This is marvelous."

-- Our first independent backer to request a mini-story

Risks and challenges

The release could be delayed by up to one month. That is, only in the unlikely event we encounter any snags with this reservation process. The good news is the production is already "there." We're just putting your names in. I've been working off hours on the technology behind H2O for twenty years. My day job was programming algorithms at places like NCSA and NASA. We have made some batches of reservations already without issues. I just wanted to be upfront and honest with everyone, myself especially, about this potential risk.

    THE WRITER AI AND THREE MINI-STORIES

    The writer artificial intelligence
    H2O: A Drop in the Ocean
    featuring over 1,500 mini-stories.

    Three mini-stories within H2O. Audiences access each mini-story multiple ways, as part of one or more larger stories. This represents three hours of personalized play. Explore your stories and their relation to each other and to the larger story space.

    NOTE: "game" and "writer AI" and "Reality Editing Machine" and "Own Your Choice Adventure" were used synonymously in these reward descriptions. It was only as we were talking to people we realized "writer AI" captured best what this experience actually is in the terms audiences would understand most readily. Understandably, we couldn't adjust the rewards descriptions once we already had backers. But there you have it. Also, there is no longer a $2 pledge level. H2O-unordered is freely accessible. We sincerely apologize for any confusion. Doing our best, this is all very new!

    Access to project promotional materials as at the $1 pledge level.
