Our 26 Minute Elevator Ride

Elevator Pitch with Eight and a Half Bit

Last night, at 2 am Central US time, we hopped in a digital elevator with Paul and James of Eight and a Half Bit in Australia.  It only takes 1 minute to go the 140 floors of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, but it takes 26 minutes to deliver a proper elevator pitch for Ring Runner.  Dare I say it, we might need a... space-elevator.

You can watch the video here!

We start off with the basics, so some of you more veteran Sagesmay want to skip ahead because there are some very exciting announcements further into the video.

Without sounding the spoiler alert, you'll hear about a new EVE or X-Com-like feature in the works and get to see the world premier of an image related to one of our stretch goals.

Thanks again to James and Paul for having us on.  They're a couple of magnificent Australian gents, and it was a real pleasure to chat with them!

Until next time, Sages!

      Yep, you can have Nero research your favorite node type as you sleep! ;)

      And I'll post a better version of the mock up soon -- hopefully when we hit that Stretch Goal. I'm actually working on some detailing right now.

      Research in real world time ?! Really ?
      And the city mock-up was small in the video, maybe you can add it here.
