Kickstarted Creativity: Two fundraising campaigns of interest

February 28th - via:
I approach Kickstarter very much from the perspective of the consumer and possible backer. That means that when I encounter such a campaign, my first question is always, “Am I interested in this?”, my second is “If I commit to this, will it be value for money?”, my third is always “Can I afford to commit to this?”, and my fourth is “Do I want to commit to this?”. (Read More)

Wooohooo! I'm in the car for two hours and come home to this! All of you are so awesome I don't have the words to describe it! And not only are we funded, but we're only $246 to the first stretch goal! Can we do that and more in the next 13 hours? If... (Read More)

39 Hours and Counting!

December 2nd - via:
We've gotten a nice surge since yesterday's update, and Kicktraq is estimating at 93% now, so we've still got time to reach our final goal! Woohoo!  We're really cutting it down to the wire here, but it's been an exciting experience, whatever... (Read More)

70 Hours and Counting!

December 1st - via:

New Reach Goal and Add On!

Now on Kickstarter #4

November 28th - via:
So, it’s Thanksgiving, which to us in America holds a great significance. I speak, of course, of the annual throwing off all commercial inhibitions in a frenzy of retail shopping. Still known as “Black Friday,” this event has now officially moved to starting on Thanksgiving itself (or earlier). This is due in no small part to the rise of online shopping, including at game companies such as AEG and Fantasy Flight. But if you’re willing to delay gratification a bit, you can still “invest” in your retail future with good old Kickstarter. (Read More)

It's Magic!

Preview Layout Video!

November 22nd - via:
A preview of Corporia's entire interior page layout can now be seen in a second video on our main Kickstarter page!   The resolution, size, and speed mean that it's not a substitute for the full PDF, and I've 'washed out' Chapter 6: Game Mastery to... (Read More)
