In Topic: Stopping a negative viral campaign against you?

28 October 2014 - 03:54 PM

Well Servant of the Lord, maybe this is different since this is a game development forum, but I'll tell you a little story...

I met a guy on the internet and we didn't start out the best of friends but sort of, kind of, became friends. He seems to greatly encourage me to follow my dreams, and seems to really encourage me to do a second campaign. He backed the Ouya and had no problems with it. He once gave me $50 and when my funding goal wasn't reached, and I offered it back, he declined. He also played my outer space game, and complimented me on it and said he wishes he could do that.

Now I think there are more people like him out there, that aren't quite as dare I say pessimistic as you guys. But there are also trolls out there - who if they were to fund my project, which they probably won't, they wouldn't be happy with almost anything I did.

I'm just tired of this. I feel almost everyone on this Gamedev forum has a "mightier than thou" attitude sometimes. If you feel I'm going too far saying this, go ahead and lock this thread, so I can't post on this subject.

Yeah, I made just a little bit too big of a deal over this. Before I had discovered this, I had been reading supposedly true stories about people getting killed over internet posts. That's what caused me to get worked up.

Thanks samoth. If I can bring myself together, I will be relaunching the campaign and making these changes:

Removing the tablet
Removing the snobby comments by me
Removing the concept picture
Adding a video of a previous work, 3 minutes
Having better, cheaper rewards
Minor tweaks in games to be launched

And maybe more.

I have a draft if you want to see it: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200900860/2111262697?token=50f4c9f8

I'm really sorry. I just wish I could get rid of all the Reddit jabs... Even if there was some truth or right to them.

Not to play the blame game, but I realize my Kickstarter was terrible. I had a terrible time getting the Kickstarter staff to accept anything good. They had so many weird, unwritten rules
