Hey Kickstarter backers!

The World of Steam will be hosting a panel at the Midwest Media Expo in Detroit, and we would love to see you there! We have tickets reserved exclusively for our biggest supporters (you), and ready for handout.

The Midwest Media Expo is a Comic Convention celebrating Animation, Film, Television, Video Games, Tabletop Gaming, Comics, and Internet Culture. Special guest speakers this year include writer Max Landis (Chronicle, The Death and Return of Superman), writer and musician Aurelio Voltaire (Oh My Goth!, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy), cartoonist Natasha Allegri (Adventure Time), actor Vic Mignona (Street Fighter II, Full Metal Alchemist, Bleach, Kekkaishi) and many more.

This will take place in Downtown Detroit from April 25 - April 27.

Please e-mail us with your guest name for the ticket. Supply is limited, so it will be given on a first come first serve basis.

For more information on the Midwest Media Expo, please visit their website below!

Update #56

POLL: The World of Steam Soundtrack

6 comments

Hey Kickstarter Backers and Steampunk Fans!

Thanks for your patience during our development of the first season of The World of Steam and this long period of pre-production of our second episode, The Duelist. Last year, we were held back from shooting any of the first season beyond finishing the pilot by the production company who contracted us to shop the show. This year, we've decided to take back the season's production into our own hands, but we are way behind where we want to be.

Some of you have been asking: When will we receive the mp3 for the first episode's soundtrack?

To those who donated through Kickstarter, we did promise you the soundtrack, by the amazing Bear McCreary, to the first season of The World of Steam.

As we are still in pre-production to the second episode, we have a question for you in return:

Would you prefer to:

a.) Wait for the full first season of the World of Steam before we deliver the entire soundtrack

or…

b.) Receive the mp3 for the pilot episode of The World of Steam: The Clockwork Heart?

This season has taken much longer than we ever anticipated and its rewards are yours, so please chime in, and let us know your thoughts. If you'd like to receive the mp3 for the first episode, we'll get that to you right away. But if you'd rather wait, we understand. We'll put up a poll on our website for you to vote. When we get a large enough number of you responding, we'll move forward with that decision. The pilot you funded came out great, and we want to continue to bring you great art with great story lines. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding as we build this show.
