Good news! We've been approving proofs like mad this week and the game will likely be in production by Friday.
While we're waiting, we wanted to draw your attention to another project that our Lead Designer, Jeremy, is involved with-- and which has a special connection to "Inevitable." It's a new "indie charity" called the Endowment for Unexceptional Humans.
The premise is unusual, yet simple-- they believe that all humans have the potential for excellence, and they wish to provide rewards to people who have a plan for success, but who may not have an existing track record of achievements and accomplishments. (There are plenty of scholarships and grants designed to reward exceptional people, so why not a grant program for "the rest of us?")
In fact, Inevitable benefited from a technology grant from the Endowment last fall, when our production computer began to break down. We didn't have money in our (incredibly tight) budget for a new computer, but we approached the Endowment and they provided for us.
Their mission fits with our company approach to creative, collaborative funding, and Jeremy was excited to do more with them. As a result, he now volunteers as a member of their board and is helping them with their own fundraising efforts. They're a scrappy team of less than a half-dozen people, and are trying (at present) to raise money without going to big corporate sponsors.
You can learn more by checking out their site: http://www.unexceptionalhuman.org
or visit their Kickstarter campaign: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/194153050/the-endowment-for-unexceptional-humans
Some of you have already contributed, and for this I thank you. And if you can't support the project financially, please consider just sharing the link (the short version is: http://kck.st/cjvhTs).
Thanks so much!
Jeremy (and Jon)
