DoubleBear's Brian Mitsoda has put up a new update for zombie survival RPG Dead State, which serves mainly as a teaser for their upcoming Kickstarter...
You can expect:
-An incredible trailer
-A Kickstarter video with new footage of the game (and me on camera, which is always terrifying)
-A look at our rewards that you helped shape
-Lots of updates and new press
Just a few more days without sleep and we'll be ready to go.
...as well as done a short interview with PC Powerplay, focusing on Kickstarter and crowdfunding:
For us, it allows a lot of the team to quit their day jobs and dedicate all of their time to Dead State, which as you might imagine, gets the game done a lot faster. It also allows us to expand the team and bring on either long-time contributors or staff positions that are difficult to fill without full-time funding. And as I said, it rallies a lot of old and new fans around the project and channels that energy and enthusiasm into the momentum of the project.
Do you have plans for alternative funding if the Kickstarter campaign is unsuccessful?
We do. I mean there are always other solutions like allowing for pre-orders, but having a definite budget to work from and schedule around is more preferable. One of the reasons we’re using Kickstarter is to get the game out faster – it’s better for the project and the community that we’ve already organized around the game.
