    Can't say I particularly like the swiping thing. Feels more like a minigame gimmick thing than adventure puzzles. And moving crates puzzles?

    In my opinion, no. Swiping things, and particularly the puzzles that result from it (magazine, toilet paper etc) are mobile/tablet stuff. They've got nothing to do with a classic adventure game and they add nothing. You can't really make them good. At most they should be relegated to 1 or 2 in the whole game. At most. Not at every step like it is now, esentially replacing classic puzzles or just wasting the player's time.

    It's really a very basic thing and I'm not very comfortable writing in English, but hey... I had fun with it and figuring out AGS the past couple of days. :)

    Great, thanks! I'll post it here when it's done and if you people agree with it then we can spread it. :)

    If you're talking about their videos, well it seems like that, but I think it's just a case of being shy in front of the camera. Hell, I know I would look the same... I have a terrible hate for cameras.
    Not many of the people behind the Kickstarter projects looked good in front of the camera. They're simply people who are not used to this and they have to do with what they have. It's not fair to blame a game designer for not being charismatic on camera, seriously.
    Not even Tim Schafer did much of a great job. He seemed very forced when trying to sound enthusiastic. He might well have been enthusiastic, but if felt like he was forcing it.
    But, he's not an actor. So he shouldn't be judged on his charisma.
     
    I understand that people put a lot of importance on visuals and appearance, though, and that's why I keep saying they should have more videos. They can avoid awkward moments by being short and to the point.

    I don't understand this. It wasn't directed at them. People just always want to make everything about them.
    It's like seeing someone on TV saying "bullies should repent for what they did" and then take offense because, hey, you're not a bully, why does it say that on the TV channel YOU are watching? They should like say it on Bully channel.

    How about something like this: http://i.imgur.com/p0hhR.jpg ?
    Anyone knows how much does advertisement cost in some popular USA newspaper? A national, not local one. I'd expect it's pretty expensive, but maybe the administrator of this site could organize a fundraising for it and we could also invite backers from Kickstarter to contribute.
     
    Maybe the Two Guys can also chip in for part of it if it's too expensive to raise everything by ourselves and they think it's worth it.

    filipst reacted to Johnathon in Sponsored ads for the SpaceVenture kickstarter...   
    Alright, so...
     
    I had $100 worth of advertising credits that came with my website account and which I had never used. I decided to go ahead and plug in a campaign for the SpaceVenture Kickstarter on the google search engine.
     
    These ads, according to google, should begin almost immediately. PLEASE, do NOT click on them if you are already aware of the kickstarter - as they will stop running once my promotional balance is used up.
     
    To try and avoid excessive clicks from being used up, I have them set to display only twice per day maximum to any given unique web surfer. Also, given that the balance is for only $100, I have the quota set to $3.45 per day. What this means is that you may not see these ads at all if the quota gets reached quickly each day; though assuming the adds cost $1 per click (I can't remember exactly what they cost), that's still about 100 more people being led to the SpaceVenture Kickstarter.
     
    I also have credits for facebook and yahoo. I'll be setting those up next.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Johnathon

    I hope someone does a marathon like they did for Larry and for Jane Jensen's project. It should help raise some more awareness.

    I don't get it. There's isn't even a news bit about this Kickstarter going online. There's an older one from April about it, but nothing now?
    Who leads a site where Portal is an adventure game but this doesn't even get in the news?
