As much as I may not like it, I have to face the facts. There are less than 11 days left in the Kickstarter campaign and there are only two backers to the project. The campaign video has been viewed nearly 300 times. Statistically this campaign is doomed to failure.
While I still hold out hope that it may fund in the last few minutes, I still have to begin planning for what will happen if it does fail. That is what this post is all about.
Even if the campaign does fail, this game will still get developed, and will eventually make it onto the Google marketplace. The game may come out later than I initially planned, since it will take me a bit longer to save up the money to pay for the graphical and audio assets.
So the question you may be asking now is, if we know the game will probably fail on Kickstarter, what reason is there for you to back the project now? Well, even if the Kickstarter fails, you will still be allowed to submit fortune cookie messages to be displayed on the title screen.
To submit your fortune messages, simply submit then through the Kickstarter Comments. For every $1 that you pledge, you can offer up one fortune message in addition to the amount that your pledge level allows. For instance, if you decide to pledge $10, you can submit a total of 20 fortune cookie messages, that is 10 from your backer level, and 1 more for every dollar you pledged.
