First off; thanks especially to Drew, who seems to be the one who always remembers SpeedRunners in conversations about multiplayer games. I love hearing GiantBomb talk about our games, it fuckin lights me up.
Hey remember when I kept going on about hijacking aeroplanes? Well it turns out I was just designing a videogame. Now I can talk about it!
Yep. Kickstarter. We pitched to investors all over the world, but investors have never played Just Cause 2. Ask me about how that went, I can talk about it.
So we're doing this Kickstarter, and I have this feeling in the pit of my stomach that I just can't sell people on badges, and trinkets, and dinner with the developer for two thousand dollars, y'know? It's nuts, the world of kickstarters is crazy and scary. I don't wanna offer people to design levels and characters, cos I really just want every part in this game to be a cohesive piece of the puzzle- I mean that's what game design is, right? Stretch goals and cameos are so weird to think about from a pure design perspective, it's all just worrying.
So we waited on this idea until we really had everything lined up, we shook a lot o hands, and I'm pretty happy to say that our rewards are just videogames.
This is everyone we've worked with over the passed year or so, we made a bundle out of it. Some of these games aren't out yet, but they'll be out soon. I think a bundle is a good clean way to raise money, so I hope this picks up. We're gonna keep makin friends out there, so who knows what games are gonna be in the next one. Exciting, right!?
Also ten copies of Jet-Getters, so we can have a big full server on release. Makes us look like a super popular game, and you'd rather play with eachother than with strangers anyway, right? Also you get to be a real nice santa clause guy-- look everybody wins, that's the thing.
I could talk about the game, but it's all on the page, and I'm gonna be talkin about this game for the next 6 months. We're kind of itching for a news site to write an article on us so we can get some traction right now. Here's us two testing out the video camera in the office!
Guess which one I am! I'll give you a clue: I fucking hate that thumbnail!
More office meeting videos to come. Does anyone watch all the DoubleFine stuff here? I love seeing all that.
Yea I could talk and talk and talk about this one; ask me anything, I guess! Wanna know about design or development stuff? I'm doing more directing than actual asset production now for the first time, it's really weird. I'll be in the office all month to be involved with guys like you while everyone else is at GDC and PAX. Bummer!
I mean uh--- cool!
