Op Ed

Last Jungle In Sector 17 - When Indie Dream turns into Indie Reality- aka our Kickstarter disaster.
Right after the launch we sent out emails to 65 gaming news sites and posted announcements to 68 forums and to our twitter, facebook, steam, youtube and indiedb channels. The response was rather cold, we got 1 reply from the press (greenlitgaming.com) and many forums actually banned us for advertising. After 26 hours, we had managed to get 284 video views and 7 backers (5 of them within first hours after launch).

Whenever I read stuff like this, I put down my own project for a few days and sulk.

Do you have a blog or something where we can check it out?

Nope. Don't really have anything I want to show yet. I'm still writing my own engine so it's a lot of boring technical shit that I'm slowly sucking less at.

Once I have something to show this'll be the first place I do it though

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
