I'm going to write and sell a full-length text adventure for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). The game framework will be open source. Read more
This project was successfully funded on December 6, 2010.
Update, Nov 1, afternoon
So, I'm over the top. On day 1. I am perilously close to speechless (or even textless). The outpouring of support has been overwhelming.
But maybe you've just discovered this page -- you just read a news article, or a blog post, or you saw it on Kickstarter's "most popular" list. Have you missed out on the fun? Is the Hadean Lands funding project now in past tense? Certainly not!
By Kickstarter's rules, you can contribute until December 6th -- the original deadline. And here are some reasons you might want to:
* The more donations, the more time I can spend working on the community projects and open-source work. Finishing Hadean Lands will be top priority, of course. But like I say, this Kickstarter project is not about just one game.
* If you want to play Hadean Lands on Mac, Windows, Linux -- anything but iOS -- you must pre-order. The Special Runs-Anywhere Limited Edition is only available as a $25 Kickstarter reward. If you wait until next year to buy the game, you will find it available only for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch.
* The immediate plan is iOS only. But the more people donate, the more resources I will have for other mobile ports such as Android.
* You think I look fantastic in that Werewolf t-shirt.
And so on. Regardless: this is the best Monday present I've had in a long, long time, and I am absolutely grateful to each and every one of you.
More updates tonight, when I've had time to think.
