Putting the Last 36 Hours into Perspective
There’s a few major events in your life that come up when you know everything in your life is about to change. Seriously, you guys have allowed what started as a passion project to become something much more. This post isn’t going to have pretty graphics and tech demos (though we’ve hidden a demo link in the comments section) - those will come later - I’m going to let our incredible designer and engineer rest this weekend after putting together an incredible launch. Here’s some figures we can all high-five over:
- In under 20 minutes, 100 backers strong
- In 2 hours you helped us blow past our funding goal
- And in the first 24 hours you have propelled us into Top 10 Gaming Hardware Project on Kickstarter of all time (and top Nintendo accessory ever!)
In the meantime we received over 200 messages from Kickstarter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, and email. I think we tackled them all but here’s what we’re hearing you REALLY want:
- Audio Input / Mic Support (Fortnite!)
- Joy-Con Color Combos
- Pass-Through Charging
We’re both super excited about these opportunities and nervous because they introduce uncertainty in a lot of the things we thought we had pretty much finalized. So our promise to you is that we’ll prioritize and dive deep into these three opportunities, communicate all the things we uncover about each, and get feedback from you along the way.
I’m also debating whether to do smaller more frequent posts or meatier bigger posts. I know everyone gets enough spam out there but at the same time we also want to make sure that we’re keeping the community up-to-date. With that said, we’ll try to balance it enough so that we’re making the content relevant and at least worth a read.
Game on, Eddie
