Update #18

Less than 20 hours to go!

Hey guys!

Just a reminder - there is less than 20 hours still left in the campaign, and we are still at 85%. I am excited as all hell to have gotten this far, but let's finish this bastard!

Those of you who have upped their pledges - guys, thank you so much! It's so awesome of you! Others - pretty-pretty please up your pledge! We are cutting it really close here!

In other news

- I am very close to re-coding the Phaeton modular object scripts in GM Studio, which will allow LOI to be ported to other platforms much easier! Also - according to the YoYo guys - the C-compiler for GM Studio should be arriving very soon, which will boost the game's performance greatly (by x100 according to YoYo) - which is awesome if we are talking Vita and WiiU ports! Hope to have some good news for you tomorrow: )

Cheers.

Andrew.

      Remember that it's *barely* funded. I think I'm still going to up my pledge from $10 to $20 anyway. If people back out or reduce their pledges at the last minute thinking the game is in the clear it could still fail, right? :/

      If there was some sort of system to actually invest in the product to see a return from the money invested I think i would have invested $1000 - 700 in to the game as a short term investment.

      Pains me to say, I'm much tighter on funds than I thought! Bumped down from $20 to $6, but even that doesn't seem to've stopped your momentum: 69K-ish last I looked, and now $72K! So damn close...!

      I might should get back to Monster Tale (and Hatsworth).

      @Glenn - Well - she was all chibi in the old game. I went for a more realistic proportions in this one. And I didn't just help on MT - I did a ton of sprite animation in it - enemies, objects (save book for example), some chomp's animations - you name it!: )

Includes all the stuff from the previous tiers, plus a physical reproduction of a short "comic book" I drew when I was about 10, that was supposed to be some kind of a back-story to the Legend of Iya, but in fact is just some horrible, HORRIBLE art drawn by a child who watched too much TMNT and Rescue Rangers. On a side-note - the "books" are in no way related to the Legend of Iya game in its current form, however you can probably use them to blackmail me.
