Thanks, Jonathan! I hope so too :)
We’ve worked really hard on this relaunch.

Personally...

I think there is too much "explaining" and too little storyline in the Video. If I wanted to watch a "Play Through" Video, I'd scroll down and expect there to be such a video.

Generally speaking I prefer to be "mildly entertained" from watching a KS video... That means there needs to be content that is either funny, clever or thematic. I don't get that from your video.

You've got a lot on your page too. Which does a great job explaining the game further and you've got a bunch of previews/reviews which seem pretty good.

In my opinion, the only "weak spot" is the KS video... It doesn't get me "excited" about the game. It tries to explain me the game -- but too much "in depth" at this stage of the pitch...

Cheers!

Animated GIFs

I'm also not a big fan of "Animated GIFs". Sure they look pretty - but they are often confusing because usually when one of these appears, you are uncertain about what STAGE the GIF is in...

Like if you could put NUMBERS, like #1, #2, etc. Maybe that would help to increase the viability of the "Animated GIFs"...

Otherwise to me, they create confusion as you try to figure out what is the FIRST "slide/image" and all that follows subsequently.

Just trying to help!

Cheers.

Note: You can add "circles" below and make a SOLID (grey) circle for the NUMBER instead. Sort of like MSN when you scroll over the news... This way I know WHEN Slide/Image #1 is coming and then I can follow through all the rest because now they will be continuous without missing any slides/images.

They don't need to be explicitly numbers... Circles would do fine too.

Here's what I mean by SAMPLE CIRCLES

This sample from MSN tells me that I am on the 2nd News Topic. It's good for MSN to help the user know what stories there are in total... Same goes for your ANIMATED GIFs.

If this were an animated GIF, I would know to wait until the FIRST CIRCLE, such that I follow the animation from START to END...

Just wanted to explain what I meant by "circles". A lot of websites use this technique to tell you that you can scroll left or right -- and most of those sites automatically scroll to the next image after a specified time duration.

Cheers Arty!

Great job

Arty,

I wish that I had the opportunity to place this one when we saw each other at PAX UNplugged. As Philly is my hometown, the next time you're there, lunch is on me. And when I say lunch, I mean having a proper cheesesteak.

I left some feedback over at the site...great job!

Cheers,
Joe

Great suggestions, Kris! I

Great suggestions, Kris!

I knew I forgot something about those gifs.
Thanks for reminding me :)

Thanks, Joe! Well, we

Thanks, Joe!

Well, we probably going to be at Pax this year too. I hope we'll be able to play the actual thing instead of a prototype.

Btw. solo mode is probably going to be a thing ;)

Really...?

Well consider me a Backer if that's done well. Let me know if yo9u need anything play-tested in solo mode, as I'm doing that for Kris' game this year and I enjoy "breaking" solo games.

Well, we're live :)

Well, we're live :)

Congrats Arty on Funding 100% FIRST DAY!

Wow you're doing even better that our own campaign - Congratulations! (Post Malone-style...)

Hopefully my second game can do as good -- and attract more backers for OLG. If we continue working together seeing as it is not a Sci-Fi theme.

But not to detract from this HUMONGOUS event!!! Great job!

Aaaand we're funded! The hard

Aaaand we're funded!
The hard work is finished, now the harder work begins :)

Thanks, Kris!

You're still in the 48 stretch

Which means you should get more backers tonight and tomorrow. So you're well into getting the opportunity to knock-back some of your stretch goals... If you were using the 80% formula... it still means you need to get some more backers to reach 100% funding of your game... But you still have plenty of time to do so...

Kicktraq is saying $300k!!! It's a goal to aspire for! Hehehe! LOL

Podcast

I'd say it's perfect timing for your podcast on BGDL to go live, Arty. Nothing but more momentum for Warpgate. :)

Thanks again to Gabe Barrett for providing such an excellent resource!

Yep, was really fun to do it. I almost forgot to mention Warpgate. Gabe had to remind me about it :D

I hope what I've shared was at least somewhat useful to you guys.

Falling behind

Hello Arty,

You've reached you $15k goal... Need to update the KS page and provide a NEW stretch goal to be reached. You don't want to lose momentum that you've built up during the last couple days!

Cheers.

Congrats...and looking forward to the interview

Arty,

That's fantastic...anytime you reach funding in a short period, that means you have more time to dedicate to Stretch Goals and communicating with your Backers. As to the interview, I'll listen to it tomorrow on my way to work. I've been listening and contributing to those conversations for more than a year now...great guy.

Cheers,
Joe

If only I didn't have a day job though :)

Totally agree.

You're right

Oh, those pesky day jobs...well, at least they pay the bills for now. :)

Well, it's day 6 and we've

Well, it's day 6 and we've just hit 400 backers.

Looking good so far ^^

Currently uploading the solo mode video on youtube.

And to think...

You didn't even need to use the word "Fncking" in your video like some other game used "liberally"! You guys seem prime to surpassing the $100k mark with this campaign -- if the momentum continues! Pretty darn good!!!

PLUS you guys were in the #2 Spot of the Kicktraq HOTLIST ... now still on it, but a little lower (at position #13).

Congratulations... Arty!

Thanks Kris. Well, I don't

Thanks Kris.

Well, I don't know about $100K
I`ll be happy if we hit $50K :D

But sure, $100K does sound nice and means tons of stuff added to the game.

Look forward to the video!

Arty,

I look forward to seeing the solo game video!

Cheers,
Joe

We've got to 500 backers.

We've got to 500 backers. ^^
~2 weeks left to go.

2 Days Left

The campaign is nearing the finish line.

We're in the last 48 hours and this week is so far showing great progress so I can finally relax a bit :)

If all keeps going well, we should reach ~750 backers and ~50K in pledges which is a noticeable step up from our Guards campaign.

Thanks to everyone who was following us in this adventure, helped with advice, participated in playtesting and of course to those who have contributed by making a pledge.

P.S:
Special thanks to Joe and Jochen for the brainstorming session and support in the social media.

Cheers and see you all around!

-Arty
