      Wow... I just found out that this project got funded through the NSF (National Science Foundation)! Here's the quote from Brian Anthony Hernandez's interview with Bill Nye on Mashable:

      "Hernandez: Last year, you used Kickstarter to try to fund an aeronautics game. It didn't reach its funding goal, but did that kill the project?

      Nye: That ended up getting funded by the National Science Foundation. Although the Kickstarter campaign didn't kick the start, perhaps it raised awareness with The Man or the powers that be, and that lead to its success getting funded."

      Here's a link to the full article:

      I'm surprised no one came by here to post any sort of update about that. I mean, I know we didn't successfully back the project here, but there are 1,130 people here who TRIED to back it. I'll have to poke around and see if there's any info as to where it is in development at this point.... and maybe poke GameDesk to give us all an "official" update here. ;-)

      Either way, I'm glad to hear that this game will be getting made after all.

    2. Creator Dusty Jewett on January 4, 2013

      Aww... I was really looking forward to a Bill Nye Bow-Tie

      :-/

      Better luck next time!
      (also.. Android user here, I only donated at the level I did for the Bow-Tie, and the HOPE that it'd meet the android goal)

    3. Creator CapnBludd on December 29, 2012

      Too bad, I only did the minimum pledge myself, because while I thought it was a great idea, it was Apple only.
      Realizing that there are a LOT of Android users out there as well and that making Android versions of things like this can get you more pledges. The only reason I even did the minimum, since I have no use for the IOS app, was seeing Bill Nye's name attached to the project. Good luck, I hope this does find a way to get completed.

    4. Creator Joe Rubinstein on December 28, 2012

      Bummer, but it's still a great idea :)

    5. Creator Sumoslap on December 28, 2012

      I will pledge again! Don't lose hope!

    6. Creator Mark on December 28, 2012

      Even though this project did not reach its funding goal, there was a pretty good turn-out. Perhaps a similar project with a smaller scope and budget would have success.

    7. Creator Josef K. on December 28, 2012

      Sorry, guys :(

      If you try again, here or at another website, I'll make a pledge.

    8. Creator Kyle Schwaneke on December 26, 2012

      Sorry it didn't work out this time.

    9. Creator Fiona Conn on December 26, 2012

      Good luck to Mr. Nye and GameDesk! :)

    10. Creator Brad Herman on December 20, 2012

      I believe in this project, I have raised my pledge

    11. Creator Mini Angel on December 19, 2012

      I don't have 100K for the Android version so I am just making a nominal pledge to show my support.

    12. Creator IB on December 19, 2012

      I don't have an iPad, but <3 Bill Nye and pledged anyway. Hope this makes it to PC. :)

    13. Creator Dennis Glowacki on December 19, 2012

      I love you bill :D
      Will you GameDesk guys be going to the next GDC?

    14. Creator Lemyngue on December 14, 2012

      I hope it reach the PC version :)

    15. Creator Sayed Mustafa Al-Hassani on December 14, 2012

      I really hope this project reaches its goal. I'm a student and an aspiring game developer. One of my inspirations is how Valve is putting Portal into school with their teach with portals campaign. I love the fact that video games are now being used for education, and this Aero 3D Bird Flight Game definitely lands within my interest of educational games. I really hope you guys get a surge of backers soon, because this is no doubt a great and useful idea.

    16. Creator Victoria Wu on December 13, 2012

      Do bow-tie level backers still get a game download?

    17. Creator Adam Tuck on December 13, 2012

      Aw, guys, why can't you ship the bowties to Canada? That's really disappointing.

    18. Creator Chris McKenzie on December 12, 2012

      Can I get Bill Nye to sign my bowtie?

    19. Creator Amadeu Pumar on December 11, 2012

      Another vote for Android or PC.

    20. Creator Lincoln Thurber on December 8, 2012

      GameDesk, I really need an Android version for this to be useful. So, please fast track an Android-based version because so many people have those devices.

    21. Creator leperkhaun on December 7, 2012

      If its good enough for Bill Nye to put his name on it, well then its worth me supporting it!

    22. Creator Colleen on December 4, 2012

      For Science! For learning!

    23. Creator Joel Segerbäck on December 4, 2012

      I don't have an Ipad, but I'm hoping you'll reach the funding level to make an Android version, or better yet, one for PC.

    24. Creator William Cass on December 3, 2012

      You have my pledge, though I will echo the comments of others and ask that an Android or even a PC release not be a stretch goal. I don't even have an iPad but I really want to see this game through due to all the qualities of it - being able to actually play it would also be nice!

    25. Creator H King on December 2, 2012

      I donated a bit for Bill Nye, but I would have donated much more if it was actually on a platform I use (PC or Android).

    26. Creator light487 - Kickstarter Junkie on December 2, 2012

      Looks like my kinda game.. fly around and enjoy the scenery :)

    27. Creator Peter Moorman on November 30, 2012

      Don't have an iPad. Don't care. Take my money Bill Nye!

    28. Creator RedRum on November 29, 2012

      This is a tax deductible pledge? Time to up my pledge.

    29. Creator Marie-Sofie Karlsson on November 29, 2012

      It looks a bit weird with "ships within US only" for the 2750 backer level. Can only US citizens have digital islands?

    30. Creator Juhan Sonin on November 29, 2012

      Thought about an open source business model? Feels ripe for a viral license.

    31. Creator Peter Wysoczanski - Obsidan Order on November 29, 2012

      I do not have an iPad, but cant say no to Bill Nye :) he has taught me great things and I owe him.

    32. Creator Yourmothers on November 29, 2012

      BACKED!
      Simply because Bill Nye is so incredibly awesome! That is a scientific fact!

    33. Creator Misha Coolgroove on November 29, 2012

      I have to agree with arn. It's not fair to make Droid availability a stretch goal. It doesn't take nearly that much money to make it work on both OS.

    34. Creator Robin Hammond on November 29, 2012

      I think you should have a pledge that gives you like an hour oh science with Bill Nye bet you could get a lot for that I know that if I could afford it I would spend a lot of money for that chance...

    35. Creator Matt Ossman on November 28, 2012

      Just a suggestion, but there should be a mid-range package that comes with an iPad.
      And thank you Bill, you are a role model for all ages.

    36. Creator Jeff Mott on November 28, 2012

      Pledged! Just because it's Bill Nye. :)

    37. Creator arn on November 28, 2012

      Please make it for Android too. Not fair to us Android users to have a stretch goal.

    38. Creator arn on November 28, 2012

      I'm in. Because BILL NYE thats why !!

    39. Creator Brian Best on November 28, 2012

      If this is successful please make more!!!!

    40. Creator epicgeek on November 28, 2012

      Bill Nye is awesome. Go science!
