Well, I'd love to see this game go ahead - please make sure you let everyone who backed this first KS know when you start another!
whoa this is f#%king awesome, Ron Perlman. that's fantastic, you guys should try sending some attention grabbing emails to kotaku IGN and stuff see if you can get a news feed article or something, you guys need all the attention you can get, I wanna see this bad boy funded, put the highest figure into backing this than anything else thus far, It's epic
Welcome aboard new backers! Glad you are with us on this journey!
Cannot wait to see the end result !!!! Im really pumped to see this happen :-)
I think we all are Tim...you aren't alone!
Yeah, that's a great idea. The Perl is a true gent too, and very cool to the fans. Would be a great prize.
Naturally I've known about the Perlman involvement for a few months but I gotta tell ya, now that I see it in writing here on this update I am truly tickled! If you'd have asked us, is there were anyone in the world you could have voice The Convict, who would it be. We'd have said Ron Perlman. And Hellboy (while being AWESOME) has nothing really to do with that for us. Ron has been in our subconscious since the days of Quest for Fire and The Name Of The Rose (Salvatore!), decades ago. His work with director's Jean Jaques-Annaud, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, not to mention our pal Guillermo del Toro, are among the most awesome performances in genre filmmaking! OK, it's actually just me. I've been a fan for a loooong time. Even a Beauty and the Beast fanatic. Not that the rest of our crew aren't giant fans of Ron. For me, the love-affair began in the stone age ;)
Anyway, yeah, I'm excited ;)
Seumas - THAT is a great idea! We will see if we can make that happen. We're going to add onto the current list of prizes so getting that setup would be quite cool.
Whoa, baby! When you said BIG announcement, you really meant HUGE! ;) It’s insanely awesome that Ron Perlman is going to voice The Convict! He’s the perfect choice. As I read through the BAD PLANET series, I would often times hear Perlman’s booming voice. It’s so exciting that he wants to be a part of this process with you guys.
Thomas Jane voicing a character -- Beyond amazing!
You just added a whole new batch of passion to livening up my pursuit of getting the word about this video game spread throughout the world.
You have my endless support on this journey. Best of luck! :-)
A lot of the kickstarter projects I've supported deserve great funding and don't get it, because what is and isn't covered seems to be very fickle. Yet, all day every day, it's "kickstarter, kickstarter, kickstarter" on Reddit, Slashdot, Kotaku, etc. The huge names behind known franchises obviously see the attention, but also a lot of obscure weird things (Castle Story, which I'd never even heard of, was funded in four hours after a mention on reddit. Same with Moon Intern). I think things could change once some of the video game oriented kickstarters start coming through, but at the moment, it's just hundreds of unproven projects.
Anyway, you should offer a level for a backer to pledge and come watch in-studio on the day Ron Perlman records. They don't come much more bad ass than that. Except, maybe, Henry Rollins (which would be amazing if you could score that, too!).
Kevin - we have had a hard time getting gaming sites to carry it. They are "tired" of Kickstarter projects - so we've been told.
Why am I not seeing any of this on gaming blogs?
Keep plowing forward brotha.
ron perlman? the hellboy is on your side? man..... 8-0
thats just incredible!
This project must be funded.
Keep pledging even if we won't hit the ask. When you pledge you are showing us your support. If you like what you see even more than when you first pledged then 'up' your pledge like Matt did (Thanks Matt!!!). That lets us know you want to see this game come hell or high water. You could easily skip the pledge . . . seeing how far we have to go and the time we have left - Yes - Virtually impossible. Some would ask themselves - "why should I pledge, it'll never get funded even if I chip in my $15.00. What's the point?"
Hey, it's your hard-earned dough. The point is we are not giving up on crowd-funding. We jumped out of the gates throwing caution to the wind, made a big announcement at Comicon, did a ton of press. We did a lot of researching prior to launching . . . But what we didn't think about is that there are 1000 other huge announcements coming out of Comicon, and The Hobbit kinda trumps us ;) We bit off more than we could chew in spite of all the hard work we did. We've learned aTON. We are already meticulously planning our relaunch, and we're doing it with all eyes forward. THIS has been a great learning experience for us and you've all been a big part of that. We take all of your comments seriously and to heart.
More to the point, the simple truth is that if you've backed us and we don't fund the game in 14 days it won't cost you a dime. But backing us shows us that you are willing to take this journey with us! Every one of you who pledged your support will be kept up to date with our plans. If we don't win-out this time then NOTHING is over. We're committed. We'll be launching a dedicated website to keep you all informed. We'll be updating it regularly with lots of bells and whistles. We're currently working on a trailer that will encapsulate the story of Bad Planet for those of you not familiar with the comic. Expecting potential backers to jump on board without knowing a little something about the source material is likely expecting too much. That's one of the things we've learned ;)
We're gearing up for the next round but that does not mean we've given up on this current campaign. We're just being realistic! We need each and every one of you and we need you now ;) RON PERLMAN has joined us! How big is that? Anyone think we're not serious? ;) And if you caught XPlay tonight then you also know my partner in crime, Thomas Jane will also be lending his voice to the project - and that certainly isn't the end. We have lots more in store. So please back us. Support passion, support the independent spirit, and support the freaking awesome game experience we have in store for you all.
Immense thanks to all of you for taking the journey with us.
Ron Perlman?!?! Holy crap on a crap cracker, that's awesome! I just upped my pledge! Ugh, it drives me nuts that this project's not getting more attention! I don't want to be a doomsayer, but can you share your plans should this Kickstarter not end up successful?
