Final Hours...Thank you!!!
THE LAST FEW HOURS…
We’re in our last few hours and have had a great upsurge over the last two days but the fat lady is walking out onto the stage and she’s reaching for the microphone... It’s been a tough month with a lot of ups and downs but this being my first Kickstarter and all – I must say, it’s been quite a fascinating experience with a lot of lessons learned. The best part of this entire experience was having a chance to correspond with all of you about the project and to hear your thoughts and concerns. Your words and support really means the world to me and I give you all a heartfelt thanks.
THANK YOU ALL!
Okay, now onto the survey. We had 353 people take our Mutant Football league survey and we’ll keep it posted up until the end of the week. For those that want to take it go here: http://www.mutantfootballleague.com/
There were some surprises but all very useful information to move forward on. You guys said loud and clear you prefer the top down original style view for the game over a Tecmo style view, PC was the overwhelming platform at least for Kickstarter. You prefer a somewhat cartoony art style over realistic and gritty and overwhelmingly want your undead skeletons playing football. The must have feature for the majority is full season mode and you really don’t care so much about physical rewards (we’re going to save a lot of money there) unless they are directly related to the nostalgia of the game. Finally you want design input in the game above all else.
THANK YOU TO THE MFL TEAM!
