Wow, we made it over $121k already today everyone! Honestly, the past couple days have been completely surreal for us. We’re doing our best to stay focused and on task, but watching the Kickstarter page is just too much fun right now! Thanks to all the new backers that have joined us, and welcome aboard! After announcing the new tiers yesterday we noticed that many of you bumped up your pledges. We just wanted to let you know that we greatly appreciate it!
We were actually planning on releasing a new video today, but with the intensely rapid progress lately we've had to alter our plans. That video should now be prepared for tomorrow with some exciting announcements.
Final Countdown Live Stream
We’re going to be doing a live stream of the last few hours of our Kickstarter on Friday. Join us for the tears or cheers of excitement in those final few hours, it should be fun! More info will coming soon but we just wanted to give you a heads up that it'll be on Friday afternoon (ending at 7pm PST).
Making it to the Finish Line
We're still emailing and reaching out to as many people as we possible to make it to the goal (and hopefully past), and very clearly tons of you have been doing the same! It's been mind-blowing to see the continual wave of tweets, Facebook shares, forum posts, blog posts, press articles (from sites that you contacted), YouTube videos, and helpful suggestions/tips you've been sending our way. The three of us can barely keep up with it all, and we're beyond excited that we have a chance to reach the end.
Special Thanks to DigiPen
DigiPen has been incredible to us, not only by providing an incredible education but also by helping out immensely during this Kickstarter. Some of our friends at the school have really shown their passion by placing up two large posters in obvious places in the school to further promote our Kickstarter. Yesterday we stopped by to check them out for ourselves and they look great. Honestly, we can’t thank all of our DigiPen friends enough for all of their help and support during this whole thing!
