ok first i have to say i was waiting for a truck to smash through your window/back wall kool aid man style for half that video.. damn the garbage trucks are loud..
I can't say much based on the new game because we know next to nothing about it, BUT, I can say if the game feels as good of an idea,m if not better, than NeN you should have all the confidence it'll kick butt. Between having more skills and a greater acument for horror games and all your accumulative experience, i think this next game is in the bag. That is, if you all bring your "A" game and don't slack off hehehe
wow 10k a man month? so is a man month the accumulated equivelant to doing a 40 hour work week for appx a month's time? (where the time may accumulate sooner than a month if staff are killling longer days for periods) ? thats a nice lil salary, almost twice what I make. wow.. i really need to get into this cash cow... kickstarter here i come!!!
hehe.. ok maybe not.. yet
it is kool to hear you guys are prepping the kickstarter page and doing up a teaser. I am wondering what kind of hook you'll use as a way to pitch the game. will it continue the "i suffer from a mental illness and will use real life experiences to make the game examine a condition and help examine what it is like"? will it be " we nailed NeN and now we're back with way more tools, skillz and ideas to do it again with WAY MORE ass kicking, spine tingling, pants shredding horror!" Or maybe " we have every confidence our next idea will be a commercial success, way more than previous games, but we need everyone's help to see it happen or we're closing our doors and leaving Infinitap entirely".
Or..something else? I think you will need a good hook, or angle, to grab the masses and get the funding you need. I wouldn't over do it, and I wouldn't make crap up just to get sympathy and interest, but just pitching it for what it is.. may really end up getting you dead in the water.
oh and for the love of god make sure the text is copy edited.. OMG.. lol.. a few recent kickstarters I'm looking at seem iffy but the fact they are poorly written in english totally destroys any faith I have in a final game being quality.. lol.
if you ever get too scared or worried about the game just look me up on skype and I'll kick back and tell you how your the man and how awesome you are til you can't take it anymore.
