Press Roundup

Posted by Phi Dinh (Creator)

Before I forget, I promised that I would post a Press Roundup as part of my last update. The team would like to thank all of the blogs, journalists and forum communities out there who kindly mentioned TinyKeep during the funding period. Our Kickstarter success was partly due to you guys, so here's a shoutout to all your respective websites.

Game Dev Community

From the beginning I posted various technical articles about the game AI and procedural generation on Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/user/phidinh6/submitted/) and GameDev (http://www.gamedev.net/user/172522-phi6/?tab=topics). We received a very warm reception there and a significant number of backers! We are very glad that our articles helped inspire the game development community, and firmly believe that part of the Indie game movement is not only about making great games, but also contributing some knowledge back.

Something Awful Forums

http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3473379

We posted to various game related forums as part of our push to spread the word, but we would like to especially thank the community at SomethingAwful for discussing and supporting TinyKeep without a single word of intervention from us. Although we did not post anything on there - we definitely read all of the mentions and praises, and our stats show a huge amount of pledges coming from this site. Thank you SomethingAwful!

Other Kickstarter Projects

Big shout outs to all of these Kickstarter projects who mentioned TinyKeep on their updates. These amazing games also got funded - it's going to be one hell of a year!
