Weekend Update the First - Answering Questions
Mark and Jeff were able to record a video yesterday afternoon to update you on the Kickstarter progress, talk about two specific things you can do to help get the word out, and to go over some of the more frequently asked questions in more detail.
- Thank you for being a backer. We're so pleased to be connecting with you, working with you to raise the money to build more Defense Grid, and beginning an approach where you're going to be a key part of our development process.
- Make your own "I want more DG2" video! It can be a testimonal, it can be something different and fun, it can be whatever you want to do to tell the story of what Defense Grid is like for you and why you would want more. Then go into the Steam PC game, click on the DG Contests button in-game, register yourself, and then enter the link to your video so we can promote it to everyone else and enter you in a couple of our contests. More details on that are in the original Defense Grid game on Steam.
- Let's all set our reminders and tweet about The DG2 kickstarter (http://kickstarter.hiddenpath.com) this Monday, July 16th at 2pm EST / 11am PST. Having a large number of backers all tweet about the game at the same time will draw attention to the campaign around the same time that other press is going to hit and we can bring in more folks to the kickstarter who would want to join in making it more successful for everyone.
