Update #22

New Interview and....39 hours and $10K to go...can we do it?

6 comments

Hi everyone!

Check out a new interview with Gregory on iGR.  They asked some great questions that we were quite pleased to answer!

So, here we are...37 hours to go...the stretch goal that we REALLY want to be able to do, and we KNOW you will all love, is less than $10K away from us:   

"EXTREME ZENLIL SIMULATION". All exterior doors will be able to be shot out, triggering completely simulated decompression events, potentially causing main characters to die. The environment becomes significantly more fragile (lights, computer screens and more can become damaged). Turbulance will feel more real, creating a more immersive and believable feeling of flight."

If we are able to do this, Zenlil will be brought to life in a powerfully dynamic way to guarantee that the CONSORTIUM interactive experience will be utterly unforgettable...  

We've had a large number of newcomers jump on-board very recently that has made this goal truly within reach -- THANK-YOU!!

We have another video update in store for you all, watch for it tomorrow.

Keep telling your friends and family, posting on your social networks, spread the word however you can... onwards to success!!

      Thanks guys, we also very much believe it's possible. We have one last trick up our sleeve which *may* result in a last-minute traffic boost. So cross your fingers for that and keep spreading the word!!

      @Peter: Funny you should mention those ones in particular. We've not only attempted to contact the sites you've listed, but quite literally about two dozen more. Being an unknown developer has made it incredibly difficult to get the attention of the gaming press. Adam Smith from RPS was kind enough to do an article on us that has significantly helped this campaign: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/03/19/impressions-consortium/ ... and believe it or not the awesome Notch DID actually tweet about us and even himself pledged toward the project. Beliiieve me we've spent countless hours trying to get our game out there, and considering how difficult it is we're EXTREMELY pleased by how many pledges we've managed to receive... this whole experience has been truly mind opening.

      Have you tried writing to PC Gamer, Rock Paper Shotgun etc? Just send emails to everyone who has a following in the gaming business. One tweet from Notch, or Total Biscuit could mean the 9K difference you need.

      Maybe (I said "maybe") the next goal isn't attractive enough for people (I mean, english was the priority). I wish you can hold the $70K stretch goal :) And, of course, I like your work. So, bravo and good luck for "the finish".

      ima raise my pledge and hope some of the other guys will also spend some more, i'm sure the final game will be worth so much more than a few bucks.
