Why am I making this game?
Firstly, thank you again for your extremely generous support! We have some really great momentum coming out of our first day, which is extremely exciting. With my mental illness, I often fall into a cognitive distortion called "all or nothing thinking". Sometimes, I am really excited about the project, and I think we will meet or maybe even exceed our goal. More often, I get really discouraged and think that we will fail.
This of course causes my OCD worries to kick into overdrive, so I am anxious and stressed. Combine that with my insomnia (I guess I'm a bit of a mess!), and it is a recipe for not sleeping well. However, I am quite pleased with our progress on the first day thanks to all of your generous backers! I slept better than I have in a loooooonnngggg time. I really have you to thank for that!
I am still nervous - we have a ways to go, but with your help spreading the word, I think we can create a really special game. Another reminder - we will be showing at PAX booth 885, so please stop by so I can thank you in person!
I think it's important to discuss why this game is important to me, so I put together a video.
I genuinely believe that I can help people with this game and my frank discussions. Perhaps you'll accuse me of being idealistic, but at the very least, I think it's worth a try!
Thank you for your support. The whole Infinitap team really appreciates it, and with your help, we are going to make an amazing game!
