Man, this is blowing my mind. I don't need it to blow up super big,becoming overwhelming to sort and play, but it would be nice to hit a few stretch goals and get some more heroes and stages and stuff.

Seems I've probably put about 300 eyes on it (based on post views) and got a few buyers in, but wish I could do more...

Yeah, I'm equally puzzled. I try to be realistic, but I honestly thought this would be our first $1M project. I'll be thrilled to fund because I just want to make this game, make it succeed, and launch an even bigger 2nd Kickstarter. But still, I did not expect this long of a wait to hit minimum funding.

Kickstarter is such a fickle beast though. I can never get my head around why something does well or doesn't. Let's hope we just keep getting more attention from the right crowds. Hoping IGN and/or Polygon pickup the leads we've sent them.

I really want to expand this line.

I have no expertise in this realm, so don't have anything to offer but my dollars and posts on the sites I visit.

Seems to be a straight up jackass poisoning the comments section of the campaign though. *sigh* the Internet. Sad!

$1m project? You guys must have a ton of content ready to roll as stretch goals. Maybe if this funds some of that comes out in Street Masters II: The Global Gladiators?

Heh... Kickstarter comments are hilarious all the time. Entitled armchair game designers, thinking their $100 pledge has gotten them a seat on the board of directors.

Is there no way to block or ban shitposters on KS?

I believe that the owners of the campaign can refund anyone's pledge. And since only backers can comment, that prevents future shitposting.

I don't think the Sadlers are aware of this.

Well we aren't running this, Blacklist is. However, from our understanding, you can't actually refund until AFTER the campaign. But we've submitted a support ticket and flagged just about every one of her/his comments as spam. If you look at their profile, something is happening, it's removing all of her backing history. I'm hoping they are wiping the account. :)

If not, it's just an occupational hazard. She/he is obviously miserable and doesn't want anyone else to be having a good time. These trolls are bound to show up, unfortunately :(

Well, the troll is gone and the campaign appears to be gaining momentum. A good day. :)

Yeah, great weekend overall.

I see there was some item about the aztec lady image being from a computer game. Well, the illustration of marionette doll looks to pretty much just be a chun-li reskin. I have no idea if this is legal or not, but maybe have the Blacklist team comb through all the illustrations? I'd hate for this to go to print, then you guys get hit with some lawsuits.

You can see the chun-li art here (and actually the marionette as well): fortressat.com/forum/10-ameritrash/19944...rter?start=30#248523

Yeah Blacklist has complete control over the art studio, so we will be able to go back and make the necessary changes before print.

Card updates are underway. Hoping to film by the end of the week. I'd say we should have a couple videos up by next week.
