Default Original Sin - Spread Too Thin

April 11th, 2013, 23:36
Swen Vincke writes a short blog update on the Kickstarter status of Original Sin.
Thereís four of us @Larian who are busy with managing the KS campaign, and thatís really not enough. Because we try to isolate the rest of the team as much as we can from all the extra work so that they can focus on development, we canít really muster more resources & so we find ourselves sleeping very little and spending a lot of time typing. Obviously, we get a lot of energy from all the positive feedback & I have to say the friends & family support has also been amazing, but itís still pretty tough. To give you an idea, here are the channels weíre monitoring/managing/posting on:
In addition weíre doing plenty of interviews & presentations (David & Farhang for instance did 12 presentations in Berlin yesterday) & weíre still prepping more. And obviously we also have the stress of trying to do one update per day on Kickstarter because we noticed it really does have a big impact on the campaigns counter.
Iím not complaining though Ė imho we funded really fast, considering the circumstances & Iím curious to see what the end-game is going to look like.
But yes, it is more work than I expected. Iím not the first one to say it, Iím not the last one to say it, but I did want to add my 89kg to those who are saying Ė prepare well if you want to do a KS campaign. Itís tough to add/change course once youíre rolling.
And there is an image with the referrers like usual and this time our benevolent friends of RPGCodex have surpassed us in the amount of money pledged. So here are some virtual beers for all them (well… those who pledged) <insert image of beer>
