Coming Out On Top's Kickstarter is currently at 1300+ backers, $29,000+! Good god. Many of you know I was originally estimating getting funded for a little over 5K for this project. Holy shit.
And hey there, new contributors! Thank you for joining us with your awesomeness and impeccable good taste! We're now into the 10-day countdown and I'm thrilled to have your support!
I've been busy with work and with writing the past few days. Alex's story line is mostly done, including the addition of some extra scenes.
The main stories for Brad, Ian, Jed, and Phil are outlined, and I'm now in the drafting stage, with a target of 3000 words a day. This should be going on for most of early 2013. The first draft will be minimally 100,000 words long. It's one of several drafts that I'll need to do before the entire script is in working order. Writing and coding are definitely the lengthiest parts of making this game.
I'm working on Brad's script at the moment. All I can say is...oh boy. I can't wait 'til you guys play this! In fact, I can't wait until you play all of the story lines and I get to discover which one generates the most "OMFG"-ness.
If you've played the demo you know I don't like to write any one specific way, neither making the game entirely comedic, romantic, or erotic. I like to give you guys a bit of everything. My main concern is that you have a really fun time, from start to finish.
Thanks for checking the blog! I'll be answering lots of emails and questions over the next coming days.
And thank all of you again for making this happen.
