Since its release last Thursday night (18 Sep 2014), the Nefertiti Overdrive Quickstart has been downloaded 216 times. That doesn’t mean I have 216 backers for the Kickstarter because it’s likely at least half of those people haven’t even looked at it yet, but if we get 100 more backers out of this, it will have been worth the effort.
I’m working to make a better Kickstarter pitch for October, and I’m hoping that most of the previous backers will return. The target will be lower, though this leaves maps as a stretch goal, which will invariably rub some people the wrong way, but I need to get the bar lower so I’m more likely to fund – projects that look like they are about to fund or have already funded are more attractive to prospective backers.
There will be more to say about the project as it grows closer. The interesting aspect of this for me is that the game itself won’t be changing, though they way I’m trying to sell it will. It’s a lesson in marketing, and I am really not good at marketing myself.
