Update #27

THANK YOU, final countdown, and indie games video

4 comments

Just a quick update to all backers thanking you for your support (check the video below!). You guys and gals have been super-awesome through this entire process and I hope that's indicative of the kind of community we're already building around Z.

Also, I was working the day job (at GamesBeat) these past two days and held a panel on indie games with Tommy Refenes (Team Meat), Jonathan Blow (Braid), Chris Hecker (Spy Party), and Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis. It was great to have all these admirable minds in one room and to hear what they had to say, so check out the second video below if you're interested. 

I'm going to be running around like crazy this week at Comic-Con to try and garner enough support to push us over our goal, as well as running the Z. booth a few blocks away at Gam3rCon, so all updates going forward will be in video form. I'm not crazy about webcam (re: iPad) videos -- which is why there haven't been any up till now -- but I figured you might want a break from all the reading anyway. :)

And yes, some of those videos will include live play sessions from our booth! Better late than never, right? 

The Indie Games panel is below (sorry the sound goes wonky a couple times, it clearly was NOT my fault!).

      The Leasure Suit Larry kickstarter talked about Z and mentioned Al being a zombie. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/leisuresuitlarry/make-leisure-suit-larry-come-again/posts/265464…
