Update #27

A Quick Update - Gameplay, Emails


Happy Saturday everyone!

Just a couple quick things I wanted to post about this morning.

First, I've gotten a ton of emails, including many great offers to help finish Haunts, and they keep coming in. It's amazing. I will reply to all of you, so please hold on. You should have heard back from me by Monday at noon, EST, and if you haven't please ping me again. I don't think I'm letting anything slip through the cracks, but then, I wouldn't know if I was.

Second, I've written up a description of the core gameplay for Haunts and posted it on the Mob Rules site. You can check it out at the link below, and if you have any other questions you'd like me to address, ask them in the comments of this update and I'll answer them here and add to the description on the site as needed.

      It's funny, the kickstarter "that failed" is actually going to end up doing pretty well for itself, or at least that's what it seems.

      If you devote your life to processing emails you will soon wish you never heard of Kickstarter.

      Great update Rick! Sounds like you have enough variety and dynamics to keep it fresh, compelling and not overly complicated. And fully understand the extra scenes in the single player to be a bit one sided to move the story along and still keep the player engaged.

      With this update plus the other two being very well done, help will surely be on it's way. Keep the faith!
