So sadly, today we pulled the plug on the KickStarter campaign that we’d been working so hard for the past year to create. Though it was a hell of a ride to get that point, it is kind of sad to see it go. But, not all is a loss as the experiences we gained through this will stick with me forever and hopefully open up a few doors in the future.

With that said, I’d just like to say thank you to all the supporters of the project and those who wanted to see it succeed as much as we did. Maybe in the future something will come of this but for now, we’ll put it on the shelf of interesting items and see how we can refine the theory into something people will crave!

So we keep rolling on and these past few days have seen us gaining a little bit of traction in the world of unforgiving media responders. The haters have seemed to have settled down a bit at they become more informed and I’m constantly in the process of keeping the KickStarter updated and questions answered as fast as I can get to them. I’ve had over 500 emails in 3 days…I kinda feel like Jim Carey in “Bruce Almighty” when he’s answering prayers via email.

Anyway, I spent a good part of the morning getting some more professional pictures in place, which required me to make a cheap light box so I could get the shots I needed. They came out pretty well and most will be on the KickStarter page shortly. The pic up top is an example of what I’ve been doing today.

So, we’re gonna keep hitting this hard and will be pushing every second of every day to get to our goal. It’s up there, but I know there are enough people out there that want this to succeed and I hope it’ll get there in time!

More updates as I have them, but stay tuned!

 

Not more than a day and a half into our KickStarter campaign and we’re lighting up the tech blogs and creating a bit of a buzz about this! We’re up over $11,000 and are pacing for our goal, but it’s going to be an uphill battle before too long as the praise is almostĀ  out matched by the hate. haha.

But with any project such as this, going on a scale such as this, we knew this was going to be a reality. But, press is press, good or bad and this is what we need to get the word out there.

So anyway, if you haven’t checked out the KickStarter, be sure to do so at the pic below and I’ve also added the links to some of the major tech blogs and what they have to say about it.

With everything in place for the reveal, we decided it was time for The Cross Plane to surface! With almost two years into this project, I can’t describe how excited I am to see this live! Our prototypes work, and our videos to compliment the KickStarter are all ready to go.

With that said, we are just waiting on the approval from the KickStarter crew to bring this project main stream and see if we can soon make a go at producing these. These have been an exciting past couple of weeks and I can’t wait to see what this does once we let it go into the wild! Fingers crossed as we need every bit of luck we can get but things are looking good!

We’re just waiting on the last draft of the video and putting on the finishing touches of the KickStarter page and we’ll soon enough be ready to show off what we’ve been working on so hard and for so long now! Keep it tuned here in the next week or so I’ll have the link to the KickStarter page and we’ll hit the ground running!

Last month as most of you know I had a few visitors over to the house for what some have dubbed “Geek Fest”. Essentially that is what it was but regardless of that, one of the “Geeks” who attended was RIT student [Julian Hammerstein] or better known as [BETA].

He and [Mike Moffitt] had been in development of a new computer game called [Ghost In The Machine] which [BETA] had brought with him to the meet-up. I gotta say I was pretty impressed with how well and how smoothly it worked and the 8-bit sounds and music really kept with the nostalgic nature of the game play which apparently is extremely challenging, just like old games were.

So anyway, the two have started up a KickStarter to bring this game to a larger market via Steam (I think) so if you’ve got $5 bucks, back their project and get the game after the KS concludes. Hard to go wrong! Check out the video on the KS page with the big pic above will take you right too and get the full low down on the project!
