New Story, Logo, and Social Stretch Goal!
by Calvin Wong
Event 1: ego-tech S.Haswan requested direct br.comms.line to id-tech K.Kaur at realtime 17:54:04:0797 on day 9892.
Direct line established. Encryption: Amygdalic.v32
Kul wake up
K.Kaur I'm not asleep, just working in the D-scape. What do you need?
S.Haswan have you seen the new readouts
K.Kaur No, why?
S.Haswan go look at the opdrex logs like, now
Um.... is this in Realtime?
Two users are thinking
S.Haswan yes. it's coming off the towers like this
K.Kaur This cannot be accurate. Are you sure it's not transliterating the output in dreamtime?
Also, which tower? 1992?
S.Haswan all of them. every tower. every year. we're receiving more dream data in one second than we've received in the last five years.
Two users are thinking
S.Haswan we need to find and wake Linda
K.Kaur That's not possible. We've never had transmissions from more than one tower, you cannot be telling me that all of them are lighting up at once!
S.Haswan I know she's in the dreamscape but this is unprecedented
K.Kaur Siti, you're not playing a joke or anything, right?
This is really happening? Oh my God. I just saw the OpDrEx logs.
Two users are thinking
K.Kaur This is really happening. Oh my God. We can finally go back! Siti we can go back! We can fix everything!
S.Haswan Kul i'm going to be honest with you i'm kind of dying of excitement over here
we finally did it
decades of work
K.Kaur I'm going to wake Linda. You need to upload all the tower data to the mainserv and get the rest of the team down here.
S.Haswan already called them. do you have a fix on linda's coordinates
K.Kaur She was working down in the lower cortex. I'll head down there now. Upload those files!!!
S.Haswan I'm gonna wake up. my mind is spinning. I need to get out of dreamtime.
see you in realspace.
K.Kaur Why are you still here?!?
Connection terminated by user K.Kaur
end of br.comms.line
Total comms time: 0.023 realtime seconds.
Event 2: ego-tech
S.Haswan requested broadcast spectrum to all Dreamscape Project Members S.Haswan: from: siti in ego.tech. to: all. yes, I mean ALL. append attachment: OpDrEx readouts.
message reads: EUREKA!!!!!
We got some feedback from some of you that the logo doesn't really fit with the game, so we went back to the drawing board and now have this logo!
Do you think the above logo fits the game better? Please comment on the main Kickstarter comments page with your thoughts!
Questions for You
What did you think of the new Dreams of Tomorrow logo? Anything else you think should be changed about the logo, box, or anything else?
What would you like to see in our next KS Live video? We love being able to interact with you in the videos and want to bring you the content that you really want!
We would love to hear your answers in the main Kickstarter page comments, so we can keep them all together and get a conversation going! One of the best parts of Kickstarter is getting to know all of you a bit better!
We've made some progress on the social goals! With your help, we'll be able to make them all and add in the Dreamiest Engineer card! (The name of the card could change.) Current Status of the Social Goals:
- 110/100 BGG Fans
- 1149/1200 Facebook Likes
- 14/200 Facebook Shares
- 4983/5000 Twitter Followers
- 140/200 Twitter Retweets
- 0/100 Facebook Group Members
The goal for BGG Fans has been reached! Yay! Thanks to everyone who helped out. We're also really close on twitter followers and not too far off from retweets and likes.
We've also just created a Weird Giraffe Games facebook group, so there's a new option available to get to that fourth social goal!
Kickstarter Live Playthrough Tomorrow
We'll be doing a live playthrough tomorrow! It'll be at 9:00am EDT (10:00am CDT/ 11:00am MDT/ 12:00pm PDT). We would love if you posted some questions by following the link on the preview video on the Kickstarter page or commented on the Kickstarter page.
