Pre-Halloween Parties

We're doing very well so far - Thank you everyone for your support!  We're rapidly approaching the 1/3 mark towards Hero-U's goal.  We're now in the "accumulation period" where we slowly build up towards the goal.  We hope all of you are sharing the project with your friends, but being gentle about it. :-)

Ten of us (the most that could fit) got together for a Google+ hangout last night, and had a fun time asking and answering questions about Hero-U, Quest for Glory, and so on.  It was an experiment, so we decided not to record it.

I will add some new rewards this weekend as part of our extended Halloween celebration.  Remember, you can use "Manage my pledge" to adjust your reward level and pledge amount at any time.  If you joined us early, keep checking back - You won't miss out on new rewards!  I will also make sure I mention any reward additions in an Update.

We're going to have another party today at 2 pm Pacific Time on Saturday.  That will be 5 pm on the East Coast, 9 pm UTC, etc.  Google "Current time in California" and you can find out when to show up. We plan to broadcast this one and record it on YouTube.

Speaking of YouTube, we got Andrew Goulding of Brawsome to record some of his thoughts on the project.  hanks Andrew!  We hope the video will help everyone understand why everyone on this team is so excited to be working together.  Talk about your "mutual admiration societies." :-)  Seriously, we have a great team and everyone on it knows how to make fun games.  This is going to be amazing!

Since I've yet to successfully at a video to an update (someone PM me about that please!), here's a link to Andrew's talk:

      The title of the video could use some work, but nice video. :)

      Just got out of bed =0). Then of course I had to change nappies and get the kids breakfast. Just set the video listed-public in the scant minutes I have while the kids are powering through their cereal. I couldn't seem to do it on a mobile device, had to get onto a desktop.

      The video is currently unlisted. Wouldn't it be better to have the video show up in searches to spread the word ?
