Alteil Horizons Kickstarter Update –  hitting 25%

As to be expected, things have been pretty crazy on the Kickstarter front. We shot up to 25% in the first few days, which is pretty thrilling. Things leveled off a bit, but apparently our current pattern fairly normal and the Kickstarter tracker sites are still saying we’re on track. However, if we’re going to hit some of those stretch goals, we’ll have to take it up a notch.

On Friday, I have an in-person interview with a reporter from a major gaming site. Not sure if it’s going to be a video or an article or what, but I hope something good comes from it. I have a few smaller podcast-type things lined up as well. We might drop by the Kickstarter hackathon as well, and see if we can talk to some of these guys in person. We also have some surprise announcements to try and generate more buzz in the next week or so.

One interesting fact is that it looks like only about 30% of the regular Alteil users who spent in the past few months have backed the Kickstarter. That means that a good chunk of you are still biding your time. It ALSO means most of the money so far has come from new faces which is GREAT news. This was precisely our plan to attract the next generation of players through this Kickstarter.

Now, if you’re biding your time, don’t forget that you can change your pledge level at any time. So, there’s no reason not to back us now. Backing us now increases our chances of being picked as a staff pick on Kickstarter, which is really the one missing puzzle piece for us right now.  Kickstarter itself is already a source over a third of all our pledges, (our early momentum had us bouncing around the “popular” page end of last week) and apparently getting a Staff Pick is about 10 times better.

Batora's Challenge Unite to Stop Him
Written by Logress

It looks like Batora has finally issued a formal challenge!   The minions of Batora are going Berserk in the Arenas right now!

I've met with Karite, and we've come up with a plan to power up the barrier that protects all of Lavato from evil. It looks like if we can defeat the minions of Batora at least 50 times, that should be enough to knock them clear of our dimension long enough to re-activate the barrier.  Iczers, we are counting on you!

As Iczers, this is what we’ve been training for all year.  We need to beat back Batora’s minions before it’s too late!  As the Game Masters, we’re offering a big bounty on these masters of evil.

BATORA SPOTTED!!!!

How could this happen!!!?

I go away for a few days and every demigod level evil gets delusions of grandeur!?  Here I am, focusing on the Kickstarter and the future of Alteil Horizons like a good game developer and Batora attacks while I'm not paying attention!  I know Batora's standard operating procedure is to consume the souls of all living things in entire dimensions and leave a scattering of burnt, husks of planets in its wake -- but this is just low.

I need your help!  Iczers, prepare for war against Batora! The forces of evil can attack at any time - from any direction!  And, judging by the rumors, this Batora's Slave may have some tricks we've never seen before!  I will immediately convene with Karite (sleeping, the Four Gods cannot speak, so Karite speaks for them) and come up with a plan for expelling Batora as soon as possible. Until then, stay safe and always be ready for a possible ambush!

Hey all, back from a long day scrounging up Kickstarter backers and various press. We scored some pretty good mentions so far from Anime News Network and Blistered Thumbs, and of course there was the Kotaku article yesterday. All in all we've hit almost 20 big sites.  If you want to read all about it, there's a rundown here.  But enough about me, how were things over here on the ol' Alteil?  Did I miss anything? Slow as usual? Hmm, well I may as well check my messages...

...hmm, magazine subscription, no thanks...

...this month's water bill, okay.

...this month's water dragon bill, fine.

...and there seems to be a bunch of messages here with a lot of expclimation points... uh, hmm... oh.

Oh dear.

...

I think I need to make a new post... something with a different title... in all caps...

One moment...

BATORAAAAAAAAA!

Remember the mini-goal for the Kickstarter that we mentioned via email? 500 gran to every Alteil player if we reach $15k with the Kickstarter by midnight on 9/11? Well, things are going so well that we're going to sweeten the sweetener...
