Sorry to bother you again so soon, but I'd like to ask your advice - this time, about when to run my Kickstarter.
I want to get CULTIST SIMULATOR out of the door as soon as possible, and I definitely want to run a Kickstarter to help with funding and publicity - preferably in November this year.
However, my timetable looks like this:
OCT->DEC 2016: CULTIST SIMULATOR
JAN->JUL 2017: BIOWARE GUEST WRITING SLOT
AUG 2017 -> ?: MORE CULTIST SIMULATOR
So I'm nervous about saying to people 'brilliant thanks for the funding! PS the project is about to go on hold for six months.'
On the other hand, I reckon I can get an alpha out by end Dec 2016, and if I set final release for a relaxed February 2018 - which I can definitely manage - that's still pretty quick for a Kickstarter.
So I'm doing what I always do in these circumstances, and asking my community. What do you think? Would you want to pledge in November? Do you think other people would?
Yes. Run it in November this year
Play it safe - run it in Q3 next year
A different opinion!
Thank you as ever for your willingness to get my brain all over your eyes. Please do forward these brain smears to anyone else you think would be interested.
