18 Days until Demo Day...

Posted by Mel Langlotz (Creator)

 18 Days until we will be standing in front of 100 Angel Investors pitching our little hearts out.... 

It's been nerve wrecking, I can tell you that! Every day we have pitch practise and every day we are working on how to best explain what we do, our vision and where to next in 8 minutes. 

A guest audience is invited who often consists of real angel investors who provide feedback and give us an idea what the other investors will be looking or listening for. 

Amie and I are very proud of what we have achieved to date. We are watching the download figures slowly creep up and know that with every download another child will have been introduced to an alternative of sitting inside on the couch. In fact today I received an email from a school in Christchurch, New Zealand that they will be testing our game "Sharks in the Park" on 100 students and will then come back with feedback for us. That is super exciting news for us and we love that the first schools are coming on board to look at how they can integrate what we do in outdoor activities and learning. 

If you followed our updates you would have come across Magical Park by now, our digital playground for council parks to attract more tech minded families to community green spaces. The Magical Park pilot has been running for one week now in 2 parks in the Greater Wellington Region. It's been interesting to see what marketing efforts attract the most players to a park and if we should install the park signs more strategically etc. There is always plenty of learning. Wednesday Amie will load a new version for Magical Park and release a new creature, our gorgeous blue flying dragon, into our Magical Park world. 

If you have children or grandchildren around the age 6-11, I highly recommend to download either "Sharks in the Park" to play on the weekend or if you are in Wellington, NZ then visit one of the Magical Park locations and download Magical Park

Tomorrow we will be pitching to the first set of angel investors and while it doesn't have to be a squeaky clean pitch, we will give it our best. I'll try and upload a short version of it without the confidential numbers ;) 

Wish us luck! Thank you so much for your support!
