Thank you for taking the time to view my project! I spent the last 8 months designing and testing many different game parts to fit my game engine. After discovering the perfect structure was a volcano, I began work on the project. I have arrived at Kickstarter with a fun, engaging, professionally completed game that will entertain people of all ages. Now I need your help.   

My vision was to create a game that would allow people to have serious fun doing a ridiculous task, over and over again. One of the best features of PongCano is the specially designed volcano. It looks innocent but it's one hot game! The task is simple - bounce the ball into the PongCano volcano. The longer a game plays, the better each player gets (hopefully) and the higher the stakes rise for each shot. Players must control their nerves and hold their laughter until the ball lands safely in the bottom of the PongCano volcano. Make a shot and the pressure is off for a short time; miss a shot and sacrifice a chip into the PongCano volcano. AND guess what? No player is ever out of the game! Even if all your chips are lost you can make one great shot that will have you sitting behind a new stack of chips in victory!

What is the current project stage of PongCano?                                    

I funded the entire research, development, and prototyping process. PongCano is ready to be mass-produced. The game has been professionally packaged and designed. I interviewed multiple factories and found the most cost effective factory that can produce the best quality product for you and your friends to enjoy. I also researched shipping and warehousing options. The games will be warehoused in and shipped from New York.                  

How exactly will my money be used?

Manufacturing. Manufacturing is where this project has stalled and is where you can help this project proceed. All funds received from this campaign will go directly into setting the factory wheels in motion. With your help, the machines will be turned on and copies of PongCano will start flowing out of the production line faster than lava down a mountainside!                                            

I like the game idea. How can I help PongCano?                                                                                                                 

I need you to spread the word about PongCano on Facebook, Twitter, any other social networks, and among your family and friends. With your help, we can bring PongCano to you! If you liked what you saw in our video, please support us by pledging now and telling your friends. Thank you for all of your participation! It is greatly appreciated. I hope PongCano made you smile!
