Archer Alec - Kickstarter 30 Days

4: Adsense

The Kickstarter for Archer Alec is now Live
Archer Alec Kickstarter Link -> Here

Well I've been hard at work preparing this.
I go over where the money is going on the page and in the video but ill summarize it here for you!

-Paying for all the Music
-Website Hosting

The goal is 5,000 I think we can make it happen.
Currently every backer gets a special version of the game that enables Archer Alec to wear a Gold tunic instead of a Green one.
But I will be taking suggestions as to what else to add to this special version of the game.
(This may not be how he looks I made change the hue/colorization a tad)

Other than kickstarter I've been working on adding a wall item where the player can place a wall block and its affected by gravity.
I think it will be a good addition to the current game, feed back on this would be great.

Also Philip has finished the swamp level music and it sounds pretty good!

Great stuff, I love the catapult. I saw that and was like OH DAMN! I would have put a bit more production quality into it, but otherwise... great job man.

Thanks, I'm not the best video maker but eh :/ 

But that won't stop me I'm going to keep working at it and get a playable version ready to give out to some youtubers.

A smart choice and I am excited to back it shortly.

Thanks! I'm actually redoing the video sometime within the next day to show more of the game but in more exciting bits.

For me the Video was the most difficult aspect of making the kickstarter page.


What video ?


Ok, I can't see either video nor any other image with firefox (V 10.0), but it works with IE. You should check your page with firefox, chrome, opera etc., I know other kickstarter projects where parts of videos/images are not showing up for me. If it does not work for me, most likely others will have similar problems.

I can't see the video on kickstarter either.. but the visuals are attractive, they remind me of old games I used to play. One thing that's jarring on your screenshot above is the dirt/grass separation on slopes.. but that's a detail.

Jan 28 2013 08:09 AM


That's odd, so you can't see any pictures at all?



It's because I'm redoing the video that's why you can't see it. 

And referring to the grass/dirt separation, I could put in corner pieces to connect the grass more smoothly.

Ok, seeing the video playbutton now, but no images with firefox. An other issue, when I want to play the video, I got an access denied message due to https (which is disabled here).


I can see all images and the youtube video on this kickstarter page, thought I have the same issue with the first video (https access denied).

I have no Idea whats happening I downloaded firefox and i'm not seeing ANYTHING on my kickstarter page except the backer rewards. 

I'm looking into it, if you have any solutions tell me please.

Jan 29 2013 02:01 PM

FYI. I use firefox (18.0.1) and I can see all content (video, text, images). Good luck with your kickstarter campaign.

Jan 29 2013 04:16 PM


Ok, yeah I guess it's just the version then

Jan 30 2013 12:26 AM

The issue seems to be, that you use https instead of http, which is blocked for me. Just guessing, but I think that you copy your image/video links while being logged in amazon, therefor the https. Try to use the http adress instead.

Jan 30 2013 09:22 AM

Im using a Http address but when I upload the picture to kickstarter it turns the image url into https.

Jan 31 2013 01:29 AM

i put 20 on the project, good luck man and start to advert more. Get a facebook going or something and share to all your friends of friends.

Thanks! And yeah I dropped some money on Advertising which will start this friday, and I now have a facebook page for Archer Alec.


Feb 01 2013 02:25 AM

What kind of advertising scheme do you have?

Feb 01 2013 08:19 AM


Well I bought 3-4 days of advertising on reddit, and I'm sending a demo to a bunch of different indie game review websites to see if they will review it. I'm doing the same with youtubers aswell. If you have any suggestions I'm all ears.
