On Kickstarter, that is. Today we are launching the campaign that will help get this first project, “Geo-Me!”, finished up and released to the wider world. We’ve done so much work on it so far – tons of animation, hours of songwriting and recording, layers upon layers of design, and ginormous amounts of coding – but we still have an equally ginormous amount to do in order to finish and release it by our self-imposed deadline, and we need some help to get it done. Funding help, that is. And this is why we’ve decided to take the Kickstarter route.
For those of you not so familiar with the wholeKickstarter thang, here’s a brief explanation. Kickstarterdescribes itself as “a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.” In exchange for your donations you will get cool rewards from us, too! You will get things like “Geo-Me!” stickers, posters, and tshirts, as well as custom hand-drawn illustrations for some of the higher end donors. Heck, if you donate at the highest level, you will even get an animated character and a verse in the song based on you! IKNOW!!! The gauntlet has been thrown, my friends. Who among you has the courage, we ask?!? (ok, we really do ask.)
So please go check it out. Watch the videos, read the heartfelt story, and weep at the overwhelming cute-ness of the characters. And most importantly, claim some of those rewards for yourself!
We believe so much in this idea, and we thank you for the opportunity to show it to you. Let’s DO this!
