Facts, observations and tools that could help you for the future!
We really hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Thanks to the Belgian National Day it's was a long weekend for us and most of the team spent some quality time with their friends and families.
Back to work, we are doing our best to drain traffic on the project, which is not that easy. Here are some facts and observations about the project:
- We are 15% funded.
- There are still 15 days to go.
- We need $2,276 per day to succeed.
- Press coverage didn't help that much (brought 10 backers - Thanks to them for the support BTW).
- 1/8 people that visits our page, back our game.
- The solution is to get known via social networking
- I am really brilliant in paper crafting!
Based on that, our action plan will remain the same. We'll spend hours talking about Algo-Bot on social networks. If you could help (one more time) to drain traffic to the page it would be awesome. You can see the power of your network using simple tools. Here's one of them.
If you shorten a link with https://bitly.com/ you can track the traffic on it. All you have to do is to copy-paste that shorten link on your browser, add a + at the end of it and press enter. Then, you'll know how many people clicked on this link, when they clicked and where they are located. You can do this with any bitly-link. Here's the one I am using for a few months now.

The fun part
Today, I took a few minutes to build my Algo-Bot papercraft. It was the right occasion to show to $20+ backers how to build it :)
Just an Idea
We were thinking of creating collector papercrafts with other skins from the game. What do you think? The papercraft would be awesome with the Steampunk skin!
Another programming game
This guys asked me if we could cross-promote each other. After having a look at their project we immediately said YES. Here the reason why we accepted:
- We support indies!
- It's a programming game.
- The concept is quite interesting but needs help to get better.
They only have 31 backers for the moment but I am sure some of you would like to support the project.
We all wish you to have a really nice day!
Sophie and the team :)
