Halfway! TV Party!

Posted by Happion Laboratories (Creator)

Twitch.tv party, to be precise.

We're halfway through the Kickstarter campaign, and we've raised $27,910 so far! So to celebrate we're going to hang out on Twitch.TV and play the game and talk about the game and stuff. ALSO - I have a really cool, exciting announcement to make, and you can hear it there first.

So set your browser to http://www.twitch.tv/happionlabs at 2 PM PST, May 25th, Saturday (that's tomorrow from where I'm sitting, but for you it may already be today) and hang out, have a beer, ask us anything.

Cheers,
Jamie

New Reward Level - The Happion Labs Wood & Felt Circle Logo

Posted by Happion Laboratories (Creator)

A bit like Danielle and Ed McMillen, my wife and I are an Etsy-shop running and indie-game-developing pair. 

So Cathy has been threatening to make me one of these for a while, and we thought maybe a few of you would be interested too - a hand-made, five inch, wood-and-felt circle with the Happion Labs logo stitched on there, for $150 (and includes the game at Omega level). It will look something like this:

But with felt and stitching. No two will be exactly alike.

Check out her blog and her shop to get an idea what the finished product will be like. Just think, if one of you orders one she'll finally have to sit down and actually make it, and then maybe she'll make me mine, too...

In other news, we're so close to $30,000 I can taste it...  I'll get to be on a team with Brian again!

Just a few hours away - I'll be on the Colony of Gamers podcast tonight (Saturday, May 18th).  The show runs from 6-8 PM CST - I should be on there a little after 7.

And it almost goes without saying, but if you want this to be the best game it can be, do what you can to help spread the word about the Kickstarter. I'm basically just one guy and there's only so much self-promotion I can do. Your help makes a huge difference.

It's on Steam Greenlight - vote it up!

Posted by Happion Laboratories (Creator)

OK everyone! Please vote Energy Hook up on Steam Greenlight. And tell your friends to vote it up.

(Even if you don't want it on Greenlight, you'd rather have the DRM-free executable, can you vote it up just as a favor to me?)

And here's a trailer I made today to go with it.
