      How awesome is that, congrats and good luck!

    3. Kezza on

      Woo congrats guys..maybe my FB bugging actually worked..lol.

      WOW!! Okay what happened in the last few hours was a stunner. We've updated our Smash Goals with descriptions. We'll probably end up trying for a bunch of those Smash Goals anyways even if we can't reach them. After all, what is a game without bosses? AND I'd just like to say, a BIG thank you to everyone!!

    5. Creoterra on

      Woohoo the eagersharks have landed!! .. I mean... are funded!! :) Congrats guys, and lets push this higher before the campaign ends!!

    6. Ezra Anderson on

      So Close, fingers crossed :)

    7. Naturally Intelligent 2-time creator on

      Are you trying to start a fight in here? Eagerfish are well-known prey of Eagersharks, which is what you might call us when swimming in the ocean. Therefore *WE* are the most eager, end of story!

    8. Creoterra on

      I feel extremely eager... it's like you could eagerly call me an eagerfish irl!

    9. Naturally Intelligent 2-time creator on

      Thanks Creoterra and Keith - we're even more eager than you to deliver this game! We take eagerness very seriously, it's an eager contest for us all the time, and we feel threatened by anyone more eager than us - but even if we win the eagerness prize, you still win a game created by ultra-eager people - so we all win! Stay eager, but not TOO eager.

      Wow! This campaign sure is rising! And now it looks like it might (just might) actually make it! Thanks all! We have a nifty surprise offer for you soon too.

      There's no doubt in my mind that the brilliantly smart and creative guy behind this game will finish this project. I can't wait for the release of this creative and quirky game. I'm super excited to play it on my iPhone (and so are my kids I might add)!

    16. Naturally Intelligent 2-time creator on

      Of course, it runs on Android and iOS (iPhone and iPad), it's better for tablets but can play on a phone. If we can figure out a way to get a copy to backers free of charge, we will. Otherwise, it will be a less-expensive (around $1 or $2), lighter version that comes out after the desktop release.

    23. Naturally Intelligent 2-time creator on

      Thanks Reid - excited to have you play it!

      Good news, we got a Staff Pick by someone on Kickstarter. Someone very awesome and cool no doubt, though we don't know who!

    24. Reid Bianco on

      I'm excited to finally get my hands on this game - I've been following its development for a while now. It looks unique and different, and weird (in a very good way)!

    25. Megan Fortner on

      Looks like fun, can't wait to try it out! :)

    26. Naturally Intelligent 2-time creator on

      Thanks for the nice comments!! This game is meant to be family-friendly - no gore, nudity, low violence, etc, but also it can be quite a challenge, so toddlers are not expected to be able to figure it out. Ages 14+ is our recommendation, although we have an astute 7 year old able to beat it.

      Looks like something my kids would like 6-23 :)

    30. Ludicrous Sin Filtro Scriptus on

      I got hooked on this game pixel art and amazing mechanics from the first "Nectar" trailer. Totally supporting this game !

    31. Naturally Intelligent 2-time creator on

      @Ezra Anderson: Three Drone types so far - with hopefully more to come - and they mostly act the same at the moment due to sharing the same AI code, but they have different speeds, health, attack damages, sight ranges, etc. Each one has a different weakness which makes them unique! We'll be varying them up more as the code develops further.

      Since a moment I looked at Don't be Patchman videos that were posted on the Moai dev forum but I didn't really understood the aim of the game. But since I saw this new trailer I really want to play it!

    33. Ezra Anderson on

      I really like the animation for when Patchman gets killed by a drone.

      How many drone types are there, and do the drones all act differently?

    34. Margaret on

      Impressive! Excited to watch this page and share in the journey. :) Good luck.

      Poor Patchman. He has so much to do to save the Sheeple from themselves and the Drones - food to grow, bad messages to intercept, meetings to decipher, to say the least. This game has huge potential. I hope the creator gets the chance to take it to many levels.

      Another write-up about our game, this time on Cliqist: http://cliqist.com/2015/02/25/save-sheeple-dont-patchman/ It's nice to see journalists giving it benefit of the doubt!
