The Kickstarter campaign for my new game has just kicked off. Here is the link:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1575848200/thaumistry-in-charms-way-a-new-comedy-text-adventu

Of all the potential audiences for the game, this group is the one I most hope to please.

Really looking forward to this, I was a huge fan of Eric The Unready.

The check is in the mail!

Goal reached in 10 days, that is awesome. I hope things like this can help give text adventures a boost.

By the way, is this coming out during IFComp? I saw somewhere that its release date was October 6. I don't think it will make much difference for IFComp, but it could lower sales for Thaumistry's debut if some people wait till after IFComp to buy it. I've seen at least one group of people online saying they were planning on getting it after the competition is over. I don't know if this is helpful to Bob or anyone else, but it's something to think about.

Thanks for the heads-up. Unfortunately, the game was already delayed from my initial July release target -- I broke my hand this summer and could only type/code at a turtle-like speed for over a month, and I'm still wearing a really awkward finger splint -- so I don't feel I can delay it any further. Hopefully people who are interested will still remember it after IFComp is over! --Bob

I'm sorry about your hand! That makes sense not to delay it any more.

You know, they're looking for more Ifcomp prizes...it might be fun advertising and make someone's day if you threw a free copy in as a prize. I know a lot of people are excited about Thaumistry.
