11 days left and we are sitting at 9% funding. We are at 126 backers which is actually quite good for a first-time Kickstarter, however, it's not going to take us to our goal. People are actually getting annoyed/angry we aren't doing better. I love this passion and am so glad they want to see this campaign succeed. So, my focus today has been to stalk people in the gaming press and introduce myself to them without spamming them. This takes a lot of research as many of these people are not easy to find. We really need to get a mention on the front page of a high profile blog. But, without a prototype, this is very difficult to do.
Highlights of the day
8:08am. Now you're playing with power! One cool thing about spending 20 hours a day talking to retro-gamers, is you find a lot of cool projects going on. Read Nintendo Power growing up? Nintendo power started in July 1988 and lasted until last Christmas, December 2012. It was one of the longest-running video game magazines in the United States and Canada, and was Nintendo's official magazine in North America.
The retro gaming community is so incredible, that the world's most well-known Nintendo writers are carrying on the torch, and created Nintendo Force Magazine. Their debut issue was the most popular single issue ever sold through MagCloud.com. What's MagCloud? These guys know what decade they are in, so the magazine is printed on-demand through HP MagCloud. This basically means the magazine will probably be around forever as the number of subscribers doesn't matter. Or, you can get it digitally of course. Amazing!
5:00pm. Arkonviox writes about Demon World on Destructoid and the mission of Phantasm Studios. Arkonviox has been an incredible supporter and I can't think him enough for all of his help.
