I'm seriously worried about this project now...



4 days in and we have $545

In order to meet the goal on a linear chart, we would need to have $6666.66 by now.

To meet the goal at this point, we need to accumulate $1,902.88/day in addition to what we already have.

The current trend is about $134/day.  To meet the goal at the current rate, we need to increase contributions by a factor of 14x.

Rota did not give us an easy task to complete with meeting $50,000 in one month.

I still don't get it. Did you rota set it to month or it's kickstarter's trick?

Therefore, Tremulous 2 might have the future (or might not, since it isn't developed by a corporations, depends on what Global Government will decide), but Unvarnished doesn't.

50,000 in a month?

On an indie game who's freeware younger cousin no one has heard about?

Well, all I can say is:  We're at 1% funding, and we need to be at 13%.

This better be one HELL of a game if we can pull this shit off, lol.   :P

I'm doing all I can to try to get some of my IRL friends interested in the project... we'll see what happens.

I would love to pledge some money, but regrettably I can not. Good luck with the goal! I'll spread the link around as much as I can. If you can get all that money, it will be amazing. Quick question though, would you still continue with the game even if you don't reach the kickstarter goal?

Thanks.

We will continue anyway, but some things will change (price, no rewards for players, release later, probably no LAN support etc.).

You should create a simple gameplay and then make a kickstarter..

@nomad

I'm sure they would, if it wasn't for the fact that gameplay cannot be had without $1,000 developer seats.

Most games come up with a bit of gameplay before using kickstarter (by using money out of their own pocket), nobody is going to fund a game without any proof that it actually exists. (yes models and concept are is cool but it's not going to win anyone over that isn't already involved in the project)

Look there: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/larrypixel/moon-intern

Kickstarter is mainly for projects. You will place project there - if people like it, they give money = project will be created. If no = project will not happen.

It is good for both sides.
