A bidding war + Backer images + Perspective ending reactions
Hey again Backers,
Our friend Luke Burtis, who runs HouseOGames, has offered to participate in a bidding war of sorts for current backers. He will match any backer, up to a certain amount, with the bidding starting at $50 or less. So, the first backer to raise their pledge, Luke will match. Then, the next backer to raise their pledge higher than Luke's, Luke will match. Try to get his pledge as high as possible, the bidding starts now! We'll handle letting him know when you all have raised your pledges.
We're still getting a steady stream of backers, but we're going to need as much help as we can get to reach the funding goal. We have another way for you to help: Backer images! David was nice enough to make these awesome images for all of us to use - feel free to set your favorite one as your icon on Facebook or Twitter. You can find all of the images by clicking here.
Perspective ending reactions
I also want to share a new video with you. This one's a bit different - it's showcasing some reactions to the ending of Perspective, a game that some of us, myself included, worked on. If you're here, you're probably already confident that we can deliver an awesome game - this one's for showing your friends, to convince them that Four Sided Fantasy is in good hands. I think this video is a good example of the passion that players have about the games that we create, in a short chunk. I have to credit Jason Meisel and the rest of the team for the part you see in the video, though - they did a ton of awesome stuff to make that ending possible.
Warning: Foul language, and spoilers for Perspective!
Now, on a completely different note, a Kickstarter has come to my attention that, although not completely a game, is something that deserves a look, especially for those of you with kids.
Super-cool kids toy Kickstarter that even I want
Look at that thing! It's a teddy bear + an iPad! How can you not love it? I even want one! Here's the lowdown:
DiDi the Bear is a cuddly teddy bear brought to life through the magic of your iPad. DiDi is like the teddy bear you grew up with, but so much more. No longer do kids need to chose between having fun on “screens” or playing with physical toys. DiDi's accessory toys magically work with his software, creating a unique experience that combines the lively interaction of apps with the tangible reward of playing with tactile toys.
I personally think that combining real-world play with virtual play is one of the coolest concepts around, and I'd really like to see this bear get made. Check out the Kickstarter by clicking here.
Keep the excitement going, Backers, we're almost to the end!
