The Alteil Horizons Kickstarter made the 30% mark over the weekend, a key point for Kickstarter projects. It's also set me up nicely for my for my mission to try and score us a Staff Pick this week! We've got more press coming, with the Apocoplay staff having given 9 (!) interviews over the past few days, and a bunch of announcements for the end of the week, plus a few other tricks.

But there's more...

50 Wins against BATORA!

After 9 days of brutal battling, Batora has been defeated 50 times!  That's enough to weaken his power over Lavato so we can reactivate the protective shield that keeps the forces of Batora away completely!  The shield will be back up by midnight.

Iczers, we salute you!  Thank you for all your brave battles!  Victory over Batora!!!

30% Looms Near on Kickstarter

I got a chance to talk to some guys who worked at Kickstarter about getting a staff pick. As you know, we were flying for the first few days, a key period for evaluation for validity, chances of success and attention from Kickstarter itself. Unfortunately, while we did get on the automatically-populated Popular list for a few days (and scored over a third of our backers from that which is awesome), we didn't get Staff Pick first week. It seems that they will give us another look when we hit the 30% mark, and another if we get a front-page article on a major news site. (We did get twenty(!) articles, but the ones on major news sites either weren't front page or didn't have a link to Kickstarter, like the Kotaku one -- since it actually went live like 6 hours before the kicstarter itself).

 If we can get to the 30K by the time the Kickstarter staff gets into the office Monday morning, and then the interview I did last week (at a soon to be named major news site) goes live mid-week, that should be a sure-fire one-two punch!  Almost one-hundred percent of all Kickstarters that break 30% and get Staff Pick are successful! Victory is in our sights! 

Batora is on the Run!

Blowing past 30 wins, we've got Batora on the run!  Don't let up now, go for 50 wins to defeat Batora and the big prize!

It's been a bloodbath in the Arena this week, with many Iczers confronting the agents of Batora and several scoring big victories!  Kouseo seems to be up for decorating his living room in Batora parts, for example...  Special mentions go out to monkeysmiles for the first win, and LoneKnight for the quickest.

Keep it up, everyone!  There's still the weekend to catch Batora!

Alteil Horizons Kickstarter Update – hitting 25%

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.
