There are also surprised by the percentage of goal achieved in so little time."

Should this realy be in the off-topic? A collection of previews on the web about the game? This probably should be moved up to the general discussion, but kudos for collecting these man.

So are the press coming to you or are you actively advertise the game? I'm curious.

Well, I made the video (took about six hours), and sent a 4 line email to Rock Paper Shotgun. That was pretty much it. Other than that it's been lots of responding to people. I'm honestly surprised by the response... I was just testing the waters, really. I'm too close to the game to see it how anyone else would.

The overall reaction and interest to it so far seems to be pretty good.

Update information link I put the topic of discussion of the game in "Punta de Lanza ("Spearhead"; wargames forum), which reports on Kickstarter campaign, there are people who have already given money and looks forward to the game. There are also surprised by the percentage of goal achieved in so little time.

Hi All,

We just recently posted a yarn previewing this game that has got us all so excited. http://gamerthumb.com/2013/11/01/preview-rimworld-attempts-to-redefine-the-art-of-storytelling/

We will also be doing a live stream (http://www.twitch.tv/dragmah) in a few hours and another in the dying hours of Tynan's campaign in which we will be playing a simultaneous versus of the game, in which myself and a colleague will be playing at the same time to see who fairs the best.

Listen out for Tynan's twitter (@TynanSylvester) and our twitter (@GamerThumbNews) for updates on when we go live.

Final shout out to Tynan for creating such an awesome game, it has been hard to focus on work this past week when your game was only a few clicks away. Looking forward to seeing where you take this game.

D
