Pushing the Big Red Button

Here's our midnight Victory Kickstarter countdown project launch sequence, as wacky as it is. 

In this video (shot from Mike Legg's iPad), we're obviously all quite sleep deprived, pseudo-caffeinated, a bit confused and wonky. It includes Oksana Kubushyna (Victory Project Lead), Mathew Anderson (Community Manager), Steve Tall (Studio Tech Director), and Mike Legg (President, coder and Chief Nerd).

About two hours prior to launch, we experienced a major network / Internet outage due to a faulty switch in the network room - which caused some serious (and now humorous) panic. Thankfully, it got resolved quickly and we were able to get everything done for midnight. We hope you enjoy our real, unedited, behind-the-scenes interactions, leading up to the Kickstarter launch. 

From all of us at Petroglyph, thank you for supporting us on Kickstarter! 

PS: Can anyone name the game running in Apple ][+ in the background? 

PPS: Some people refer to Mike and Steve as "Jay and Silent Bob". Where do they get that from? :-)

      Dan Gorlin's Choplifter! I can't tell you the hours I spent on that game. I even had the little joystick to make it easier.
