UPDATE 12/19/12: Holy Wow! We've made it to just $1 shy of double our original goal of $900! I'm having trouble expressing my thanks to everyone, but I'm sure I'll figure out a way some how! We've got just about 24 hours left, project wraps up at 1 am Wednesday morning, (poor planning on my hard maybe) I'll probably be up watching for the final count down. As I've mentioned a few times already but still done the less, we're really grateful for everything everyone has given and done, the funds raised here will all be going into making this project the greatest series we've ever made. Believe me, you will be seeing a lot more of these guys in the new year! ;)

If we can hit $2,000 we will make 13 episodes (a short but full season) along with plenty of teasers, fan thank yous, PSA, and all sorts of awesome stuff.

The What:

Super Apartment Bros is set to be an animated comedy series about three video game characters that live together in a pixelated world. The main cast is made up of Griffin, the troubled space marine, Igam, the sarcastic, self-serving mage and Sophie the cat-girl, ninja princess. Their landlord is old man Mario and he accepts gold rings, space credits and rupees for the rent. Humor will over all aspects of video game and gaming culture and will be in the T for Teen to M for Mature range.

The Goal:

-Raise funds to cover the production cost for at least 5 episodes. Pledges will help pay the artists, promote the series, pay for cool rewards, get the series website up and running, allow the team to pull awesome work in record time over their break, and get the series out to viewers by the end of January 2012.

From Eric

Hmm how to tell you about Super Apartment Bros. Hopefully the video covers most of it but here goes. It's a little idea of a project that has been growing exponentially over the past 6 months. I've always enjoyed making videos, nothing makes me happier than reading people's comments and knowing that I made them laugh.

I've made a lot of videos, most of which are on youtube now, (you can see my channel: http://youtube.com/user/toadking07) It's mostly old machinima stuff, (mostly comedies made in the Halo games), though I've branched out and experimented with other videos as well. I've had a good run with my videos, some failures, but a lot of successes, and I've learned something every step of the way. 

I've had to focus on my college classes these last few years, so I've had less time to work on videos. While I haven't actually been recording and producing as many videos, ideas have been going through my head the whole time. I've tried to figure out how best to make a new series, what should go into it, how it should be formatted. This lead to the forging of Super Apartment Bros.

I have a team of pixel artists, I have scripts, I'm gathering voice actors, this project is in motion and set to be release online in January 2012. What I don't have right now is funds. I need your help to make this video series best it can be.

This is an ambitious project, but I have not doubt that we can pull it off. You don't know the characters yet, you've just been introduced, but I'm sure you will love them once you get to see them in action. We want to make this series so good you actually laugh out loud, not just smile and type lol politely.

Remaining Facts:

Any and all mailing information, including address, names, reward choice, etc. will be collected after the project funding ends.

In order to receive any funds we must reach our goal by our deadline or else Kickstarter refunds it all and we have to start over. We can raise more but right now we're just focusing on getting to $900. But can we go higher? I'd like to think so.

International backers please add at least $5 to your pledges to cover the cost of shipping from the United States to your country. This would be greatly appreciated and we'll be sure to add a little extra love and bonus stuff to your reward if you do, thanks.
