Upcoming Livestream Backer Survey

Hello friends! We need your thoughts! Twitch has removed the ability to password-protect their broadcasts (when did that happen?!) which is exactly what we intended to do for our backer-only livesterams. So what to do? We have a few options, none of which are ideal, that we'll be polling you all on next Monday. We'll give the survey a week to collect your responses and then we'll figure out how to execute on our first livestream which will happen some time during the week of March 30th to April 3rd. Sorry we can't give you a definite date, but our schedule is always in flux and planning that far out in specifics is asking for trouble, but we'll be posting another update as soon as the date is set! 

 TrainJam was a huge success! We gathered hours and hours of footage of what's really the most unique game jam in the world.  Of course, it's hard not to have a good time when at any moment you can just look out the window and see stuff like this!

Right after that we hit the floor at this year's Game Developers Conference and shot plenty of material for our first Outerlands season of CO-OP. For those who watched our show waaaay back in the day, you might notice that we've updated our gear a bit since then:

 Should be one of the best looking CO-OPs ever! 

Last update I (Matt, the one who writes these posts), mentioned we'd have more updates on backer rewards today, but unfortunately I've got nothing new to report. It's taking WAY longer to go through all the spreadsheets than I thought it would, so, quite frankly, Humble and Fangamer aren't even involved yet. I won't make any more empty promises about backer reward updates, but I'll let you know progress as it happens.

Check your inboxes for the survey next Monday!
