Rotate 90 Degrees
I had a strange dream the night I launched Pivit on Kickstarter. I dreamt I was at the high point of a road, watching a tsunami approach. There was no higher ground for me to reach - all I could do was wait and watch to see if I would survive.
In the beginning, that’s what this campaign felt like to me - an unnerving question of will we make it or not?
Sadly, the answer is no - at least for now. But none of us are walking away empty-handed. Pivit’s backers have discovered a new game they like, and that may still become a reality.
As for me, I’ve learned what I can do better next time. I could have done better connecting to the gaming community. More fundamentally, the funding goal and price points were too high. I think many more people will be interested if we can reduce the cost significantly.
So lowering the price is the new goal. Game pieces were the most expensive component, and I’m learning about other ways to make them. I took a class last night in injection molding to see how much I can do directly - that’s the photo below. If I find a good method, I’ll set that up and announce the availability through Pivit’s permanent site, pivitgame.com.
If you want to get an email when the new design for Pivit is ready, sign up on the front page of pivitgame.com. You can also email me directly from that site if you have any questions or comments. I’ve enjoyed hearing from everyone, and I’d love to keep those conversations going.
