Final week and we should admit defeat...
We have come into the final week of our campaign and we have worked extremely hard to make it a success but, barring a minor miracle, it is looking extremely likely that we are not going to meet our target!
It has been a long, hard, fun road for us over the past 23 days. We have talked to so many people about the game, been on podcasts (both audio and video) that we could never have dreamed of and had backing from far flung places. But we never really hit the momentum needed to reach our funding target.
There are a number of reasons for this but we think the foremost is that we didn't get the word out enough. Not enough people knew about the game. We had a number of marketing initiatives that were relatively successful, but we were unable to breach the more mainstream media. We have learnt a lot from this experience and know where we need to improve.
What we should emphasise though is, this is not the end for All Star Gaelic Football! The Kickstarter campaign was not all about raising funds and the Kickstarter not succeeding does not have to spell the end. We have made a number of good contacts during this process and we hope to see the fruits of those soon. What it does mean though is that timescales are likely to be lengthened. Don't expect to see the game by the end of 2019. So don't give up hope just yet, there is a lot more to come from us!
