Have a question?
I plan to write an update about it in the next few days!
Any news? Hows the full time, indie game developer working out?
You are absolutely right. Sorry for the radio silence. We've been sitting on 3 different updates that are all waiting for the final piece to fall so we can post them. Luckily I got one of those pieces over the weekend so expect an update tonight.
Not to bug you guys, but could we get some updates? Nothing too big, I'd just like to hear about where you are and what kinds of successes or problems are cropping up. Best of Luck!
I've been saying "spring" for the game. maybe late April... But things are subject to change since this is our first product.
Also we are currently waiting on money to be in a place where we can spend it. I would like to send the shirts out by the end of the month.
Any ECD for when the game might be release?
And tshirts mailed? :)
Man, never realised how difficult it would be to think of what to put on the tombstone. Went with something a little dark and hopefully a little funny in the end. Can't wait for the game to come out!
It's just what you type. If you type "poop" you will only see the word "poop" in the middle of the tombstone.
Can you help at all with the logistics of the tombstone quote? Is it 100% of what is shown or is the name, an intro, or date already included?
Here is the classic tombstone from Oregon Trail
I'm having trouble figuring out what to write for the tombstone.
What will they be used for exactly?
I've never played Oregon Trail so I can't really try to link them to something I'd remember from it.
Thank you for the support my good man!
Chicago is your HQ location. That terrific. I was born in Chicago a long time ago but I still visit. I now live in Chattanooga, TN. This is the first time I have helped fund the development of a game. The game looks great. I shall wait eagerly until it is available. Thanks for the opportunity to help, to be slightly involved, and have some fun at the same time.
Sounds good. Thanks!
There is no solid year. It's sorta "now" but we won't say exactly (It's mysterious/undecided.) You could always put 20?? or 201?
What year is it in the game? 2012? I'd like to know, for putting it on my tombstone.
Congrats! :D :D :D
Yay! Thank you everyone. Man... I sure say that a lot.
Good job dudes. :)
I waited until the last minute, but how could I say no? Great project guys!
That's awesome! Thank you!
I just made the pledge that put you guys over $15,000! Can't wait for this game on the iPhone and iPad! Tried your game out for the first time a few weeks ago on your site. You guys are awesome!
Hmmm... maybe if everybody only gets 4 letters we can fit it all. Hah! (just kidding don't reduce your donation amounts!!!)
The tombstone database for this game is gonna be huge :) Congrats guys!
You get to pick one. Don't worry, the rest will be available. It's all digital so "pre-order" doesn't mean too much.
When you donate $20 or more do you have to choose between Iphone, Android, PC or Mac?
I would be happy if i there was a option to get both a mobile version and a computer version.
I will go with the Android and PC version and if its on Steam it would be the best!
Love the website version.
Congrats to The Men Who Owe Many Tombstones!
I just wanted to say this is quite rad, and I of course have to as for a WP7 version as well.
Well if you ever consider adding gamepad support in future here is a tutorial to do so: http://developer.sonyericsson.com/wp/2011/02/13/xperia-play-game-keys/ and thanks for the android port! :)
The original Oregon Trail blended fun and randomness in a way it was impossible to dislike. I hope Organ Trail follows the same path :)
I like the fact that this project actually got the necessary funding. I know how hard it is.
I sure hope we can make the iOS version universal. I just don't know what exactly that entails yet. So we can't promise it but I want it.
And as far as gamepad support, Since we don't have an xperia to develop on, I'm not sure if we will be able to deliver that properly. We are redesigning the controls to play with with a touch only interface so hopefully that will be satisfactory.
Could we please have xperia Play gamepad support in the android release?
Any chance the iOS app will be universal (iPhone and iPad)?
For 15k we will make a game about swimming in money. (just kidding (or am I?))
Looks like you'll be needing a $10 or $15k goal now..
Excellent work, guys. I'm in the same industry ("Inert Soap" -- go check us out!) and know how it can be a total blast to create stuff, but doesn't always pay the bills. So have a bit o' cash from me, and I can't wait for the Director's Cut! :) --Tom
Considering I just pledged a copy of the game using Amazon Payments, can you check and make sure that this game will be Kindle Fire compatible?
If your soundtrack is half as good as the music on your KS video, you will have sold me on that alone. :)
The android options will just be added to the rewards that already have the preorder option. So no worries. If we cut it close I'll probably just slip it in anyways.
This sounds awesome!
I pledged because I wanna get to $5000 so it'll be on Android!! We just change our pledges later when that reward is added, right?
For Android, you tease? Shut up and take more of my monies!!!!!!!
Can I ask that one of the random encounters be a Box O Zombies :)
Very neat project guys, As promised, I have donated :)
It took me a few hours to figure out what WP7 meant. Haha, I guess we could look into it. But better give us 5k more just in case.
You come across an awesome Kickstarter project. Do you: 1. give it money, 2. give it money and tell everyone you know about it!!! I went with 2.
How much money do you need for the WP7 port?
Gimme dem trails yo.
