Press coverage

Posted by Jim Walls (Creator)

Hello Precinct fans and backers,

It's our 7th day of the Precinct Kickstarter!  We've had tons of momentum and activity and are planning on sharing much more news with you in the near future.

Today I wanted to share with you some of the great press coverage we've been receiving for Precinct.  Since we announced Precinct we've had coverage on over 120 gaming sites.  Here are some of the highlights:

Even better, we've been doing interviews and podcasts.  So far two are live, but there are more to come!

In fact, if you Google "Jim Walls Precinct" you will see a ton of press coverage!

Other news

In other news, we have some big updates coming your way.  There's not much I can share right now except to say that we are on the edge our seats with excitement!  I will share with you as soon as we have more information.

Daily Video

Our daily video is live!  Today we talk about Police Quest I and where it was made.  Stay tuned for more fun Sierra stories over the rest of the campaign!

Communication

Finally, I wanted to take a moment to talk about the frequency of communication.  My goal had been to give lots of information without spamming you.  Every day, we're posting on Twitter, Facebook and the comment boards, but we haven't been sending out regular updates.  After hearing your feedback we will be sending our more regular updates to everybody.  My apologies if you've felt left out of the conversation.

As always, thank you so much for your help in the campaign.  There's no way we can do it without you!

Thanks!
Robert.

      Press coverage is fine, but what counts is the pledged money; and that ain't so great - unfortunately.

      Well, as an example, spamming would have been posting an update for each of those instances of coverage by the press. :)

    3. Jim Walls Creator on

      We are using a PR firm called For The Win! They have been amazing for us.

      Thanks for your feedback Father Jack and you're right -- we'll be sending out more updates moving forward.

      Great news Robert! Impressed by all the press coverage. Who's your marketing guru?

      I don't think you can spam is with updates. Most backers like frequent updates.

      If I speak for me personally, I like a lot of updates. Of course, not so that it takes too much time away from the rest of your work, but I don't like when projects to silent, especially dying the funding stage. Then more updates are needed.

      When you've reached your goal, you can slow down the updates and focus in the game.

      This is how I feel and it's also the impression I've got from watching how people in general feel.
