Such a lovely fluttering feeling when there's a new video on progress. Made my day. So glad to hear that there's even some help on the way.

Nice update guys i just hope that rigger and the animator don't wait for the kickstarter end to give you guys a little help on Deadlock. ;)

BTW i have no doubts this kickstarter campaign will be a success, you can count with my pledge and my help on spreading the news..

If anything, try and capture the attention of Reddit like the Kickstarter game Planetary Annihilation did. If you get Reddit to look your way, the pledges will come faster than all funds in the entire IM project funding history. Please don't make it too serious. Appeal to the internet audience with bits of humor and geekiness like in the PA video. Reddit likes stuff like that.

Counter dreams ftw!

I think it was mostly a matter of me being soooooo pissed at Obsidians KS video that my brain had to do something about it. Look at that video for how *not* to do it. All they do is say "My name is X, I created Y, now give us money" ... Grr!!

@forgefire: That was one of our first conclusions on what NOT to do for KS (a boring "we want to do this" video), plus we were pretty sure that it's impossible to do without having the game development history/nostalgia to back it up with...

True to the vision of IM we're a bit more ambitious with our KS project ;)

Now my brain can relax... *very* good to hear!!

That first sneak peek picture of Kim in the kitchen was already a good sign you were going for something different ;)

I made it into a dev diary. Sweet!

Now, it's fantastic to hear good news (for a change) and I'm very much liking the direction you go.

Enough flattery? I think not! Keep up the good work ;)
