I ordered mugs…
Posters, stickers, bookmarks…
Yesterday at midnight the Ninja Cat and Zombie Dinosaurs PowerPack project has finished with whooping 130% funding rate from 50 people, collecting almost 3k zlotys! How is this possible, in spite of its problems at beginning?
One of the facts was that the CD Action, biggest polish player magazine, has backed PowerPack and became patron of the game.
The second thing is that the material status has changed, and extension won’t be available online f2p for everyone. At beginning it was meant to be like that, then I changed it for a one month exlusivity period, finally it became forever. So supporting project on wspieram.to was the only chance to get and play PowerPack, which made supporting the project much more sensible option. In the future most likely I’ll be selling the game through digital distribution, but the price is unknown, and for sure there won’t be so many nice bonuses.
There was also an awful lot of promotion. Really, almost all big polish internet game portals have written very positive news about PowerPack crowdfunding; some even few times. Also Krzysztof Gonciarz, PowerPack ambassador has helped a lot. Thanks goes also to wspieram.to for their huge help, and Artifex Mundi for giving out games in combination with mine.
I’ll be preparing a postmortem from this project, because I made many errors and have learned a LOT. Now, I’m finally back to developer work, and in the meantime will be printing the gadgets and sending them to backers.
Recently I’ve been pretty busy with few activities. They were:
It came faster than I expected… after one week of sending emails, exchanging ideas and fixing problems… Ladies and Gentlemen, here comes the TRAILER:
It has been created by Michał Friedrich, who’s got much more experience with video editing than I can ever hope.
It made nice splash on polish social sharing site, Wykop. It got there 276 likes, 87 comments, almost 10 thousand views and was featured on the main page. Because of that, YT video also jumped to 4300 views. For me it’s a lot. That sunday I was constantly collecting my jaw from the floor. I love that Ninja Cat finally became exposed to more players.
Recently I’ve been interviewed by Bay A Pantoja, chemist and owner of Peurto Rican facebook gamer fanpage. Puerto Rico lies in Latin America, but what you won’t learn from Wikipedia is that they have a very strong gamers community there. Mostly Playstation lovers, but recently there’s trend toward PC. You can read it in spanish on their fanapge, and below is the english original:
Bay: Hi Hubert, welcome to our little Facebook page. We have over 2 thousands fans who plays on different platforms, from mobile to PC, and on behalf of them we appreciate that you are dedicating some of your time to us.
A: No problem Bay, I’m happy to participate and come into contact with Puerto-Rican game players … (read the rest of interview)
