Thanks Gabriel, I figured now is a good time to kick into gear and start cranking out some updates.
I spent one whole day on Reddit and Twitter, so I think I don't need to do that anymore.
I'll still use twitter to show updates, but it's best I stay away from procrastination traps.
As for the 3370 followers.
I already had $5 on Fiverr from a drawing I did of a potato in a kilt
Some guy just offered to get me 1000 followers for $5.
So really that drawing paid for the 3000 fake twitter accounts.
I assumed most of them would be fake, but with the fake ones come real followers.
I'd say maybe 300 of them are real, the other 3000 are likely bots.
But still from 10 followers to 300 seems worth the $5
I agree that the money could be spent better, but I don't plan on doing this again.
Just did it so my twitter page would seem inflated with followers and perhaps appear more popular than it is, thus enticing someone to follow me.
And so far it appears to be working since it's rising slowly.
I wish someone of importance would retweet me, that'd obviously help a lot.
My indie-gogo went up by $60 yesterday so I think it seems like a $5 well spent.
I did get some awesome comments on reddit yesterday here they are:
Listening to the "explanation" of what a game is about was like listening to an insane person talk.
I liked the music. The game itself seems very derivative.
Have you read "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown? This reminds me of it. This game looks AMAZING and I have a feeling that I will be spending many fun hours playing it!
Definitely looks interesting, and your art style is exquisite.
Reminds me of All Of Our Friends Are Dead
You say that its related to these esoteric themes, but how does that actually play out in the game? How does that manifest?
I'd hope it would introduce the concepts gradually so as not to confuse some of the players.
The idea has really powerful potential, but it could become a barrage of meaningless esoterics that may or may not even exist to the extent of some players' knowledge of all that hocus pocus.
This looks like a lot of fun!
It looks awesome. I think you're going to get alot of attention once it's actually finished and available to play.
These honest comments are absolutely what I needed.
Some of these are the kind of questions I have been asking myself.
