I keep reading this as SuperSHOT. Just can't stop! It's a game on route, a "unique first-person shooter game where time moves only when you move, making each level a deadly puzzle", and though I tend to like diving right into the action rather than stopping to think, it does look pretty cool. The Kickstarter campaign for it is going on here. They surpassed their goal within a week, and are as of now (five days till deadline) a few stretch goals on route; closing in on the second-to-last! Lowest pledge lies at $14, for which you'll get a copy of the game, and the ladder climbs steeply from there on out. I'd have liked one of the traditional $1 Thank You tiers, but it seems this team don't waste time on the non-essential! Looking forward to seeing how it'll turn out.
KUNG FURY is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.
Another awesome Kickstarter project popped up, a modern-day rendition of all that was great with the action-packed eighties... it's like a dream come true! :D Check it out. Best thing about it is that it'll be free for everyone, and it's already been pledged so you don't even need to do anything (unless you want to see it as a feature film, but a million dollars... well that's an excessive stretch goal)!
Would've been awesome if they'd made this Kickstarter to fund a trip to the real, live, Miami, to add some reality in the mix, because even if it looks real I have some kind of built in dislike for all things CG.
One of the main reasons I like old martial arts movies so much is because they're so much realer than what's made now. The stunts were real. Some times even the fights were real, they hurt for real... even if they did use a plethora of tricks (like soft shoes, flour, empty boxes...) to cushion hits and falls.
It was the pinnacle of the movie era IMHO, but I'm looking forward to this all the same. 300's proven that you don't need real sceneries to make a really good movie. This is going to be on edge, so here's my promo and pledge.
It's the final cut. :) Have you found it yet?
The wipebook is a re-usable notebook, like a whiteboard and notebook combined, with better ink so you only need to erase something if you want to. Sounds like I'm advertising the product, don't it? :P Anything you jolt down can be permanent, or it can be temporary, whichever way you want it. Good stuff, and even though I don't believe it'll be the 'last notebook you'll ever buy' like they claim... the idea is pretty useful for stuff like papermation, brainstorming or how about short presentations?
This is actually the second Kickstarter for this project. First one didn't go so well, but I was kinda involved with that one. Not sure if it was my advice that paid off, but now that the thing's gone viral and far surpassed the funding goal This time I feel like helping out! How's this (just throwing in a random promotional image from their page here, hope they don't mind)?
It's around 1,500 backers at the time of posting, so you still have a chance to get eternally engraved in this important historical landmark of inventiveness and genius. :)
Here's a project worth funding, and the deadline is closing in on 48 hours so... don't just think about it. Go go go! What do you get for a dollar? You got a...
GRACIAS!: You've touched my heart and now I need to rub it with antibacterial gel. You get a big "Thank you" and you get added to our email update list (that's a quote). For just nine dollars more you get a key chain added to that deal, and for just $10K you get to be executive producer! Anyway, go check it out, do what you can (if you like) and... if you like it, spread the word! I am in no way affiliated with this project, just doing what I can to help out since I'd love to see final product get done! It could be awesome, and backing a great project is one of the great joys of being human. What are you waiting for then! :D
Picture borrowed from the kickstarter page to spark some interest. :P 48 hours. Like the movie.
Ever heard of Kickstarter? It's a place where people can post ideas for creative projects and (hopefully) get funding from regular people who like the idea (there's also Indiegogo, look it up). Funding is usually done in exchange for certain perks, like an early release of a game, a Thank You in the credits, and similar rewards that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's a great way to help people without actually having to contribute much, since many rivers gather up; the more people who contribute, the less everyone has to give.
I'm posting this to share the reward I received on The Reward, an indie animation/game/franchise maybe/etc I'm really looking forward to following. There's a trailer there, so if you haven't seen it you... should see it. Also.
This artwork is actually much bigger, but seeing as it's an exclusive present available only to backers of this project I'm posting it sized-down. If you're watching an indie movie some day or playing some indie game and you see my name in the credits... don't be surprised. ;)
