Jennifer on Tour!
First, let me start with a huge Thank You to all our backers. This is our first ever Kickstarter, and we were very nervous about the launch. We've just passed £2k on day 3, and your early support means so much to us.
We still have a long way to go, and we're currently on the move, trying to spread the word about the project. To do so, we're following Jennifer's footsteps and travelling around Ireland and the UK.
Last weekend we visited the Galway Games Gathering, a new event in the gorgeous city. We had lots of positive feedback on our demo, and met a lot of Irish developers who have been brilliant in helping us spread the world about the Kickstarter. Here's a photo of me (Stephen) and our scriptwriter Maura McHugh at the event.
Artist John McFarlane, fresh (or not-so-fresh) from his animation talk last night at the NI Games Developers Meetup, took at early flight this morning and currently in Birmingham, at the Rezzed Zone at EGX, showcasing a lifesize banner of Jennifer and Oscar. If any of you are at the event, please hunt him down and let him know you backed the project.
And finally, I will be showcasing Jennifer Wilde at Culture Night in Belfast tomorrow, alongside a host of other local developers!
Speaking of Northern Irish game developers, we wanted to pass on a huge congratulations to our friends, and Kickstarter alumni, Billygoat Entertainment, whose game, Her Majesty's Spiffing, was just shortlisted for a TIGA award in the Creativity and Heritage category.
We also appreciate the work you, the backers, have done to help spread the work. All the tweets, posts and shares have been extremely helpful. It's still an ongoing effort, and if you can think of any more ways to help draw attention to the campaign, whether it's sharing the page on a forum, or telling another adventure game fan about Jennifer Wilde, we appreciate every bit of help we can get!
We'll have another update soon. For now, it's back on the road...!
