Indiegogo is down!

April 3rd, 2013 4 comments

Quick update to say things are getting a bit hectic here. I can’t keep track of how many sites have reported on “Ghost of a Tale” and in how many languages. As far as I know most of the major sites have a piece on it.

But now Indiegogo has just crashed and no-one can access the site (it’s not just the campaign’s page, it’s Indiegogo itself). Now I don’t think that’s directly related but still, that is most inopportune timing.

Exciting times! I’ll keep you guys posted!

Update: Indiegogo is still down (it’s been more than 3 hours now). Apparently some people in the US and Canada can reach it but Europe is still completely cut-off.

An article on Kotaku!

Yay! Kotaku just mentioned “Ghost of a Tale” (thanks Luke)! Will it help the campaign, which in its second day has virtually NO traction at all? Let’s hope so!

So the campaign launches tomorrow (and no, that’s no April’s Fool). I honestly have no idea what the reaction will be. Total indifference? Mild interest? Probably somewhere in the middle. The thing is I’m not really good at networking and I don’t know any video-game journalists. So I’ll mostly have to fill impersonal forms on their websites. Which may or may not be picked-up depending on their workload.

So tomorrow I’ll post the link to the gameplay video and to the campaign page itself. Then we’ll see how it goes. As promised, here’s a picture of the figurines available when the campaign launches tomorrow. They’re about 4 inches tall (~10cm).

A big shout-out to Thomas and Elise for their beautiful work! :)

This campaign will launch in 3, 2…

March 31st, 2013 No comments

Some of you guys may already know this, but I’m about to launch a crowdfunding campaign for “Ghost of a Tale”. In fact the launch date is only 3 days away: Tuesday April 2nd!

The campaign will be hosted on Indiegogo and will offer some great rewards (those are called “Perks” in Indiegogo language). Among which a figurine of the uncanny undead armored rats that plague the small island of Periclave.

So stay tuned, as tomorrow I’ll give you an exclusive look at the figurines!

Catastrophic Hard-Drive Failure?

March 20th, 2013 1 comment

Bit of a panic this morning, as I discovered that the entire hard drive partition on which resides the “Ghost of a Tale” Unity project has disappeared. It took me a moment to realize that everything was lost; the entire game project. Gone.

Overnight, Windows thought it would be a good idea to wipe out everything on a couple of hard drive partitions. For what reason? I do not know. Is that a sign that my computer is dying? Could be. Is it a sign that Microsoft’s software engineers made a tiny little boo-boo in the recent Windows 7 update? Possible.

After a couple of tense moments and infructuous reboots I managed to resurrect the game partition (although not the other partition, which seems very much gone) using Partition Wizard. And after some tests, it looks like the hard-disk itself is not to blame, which seems to incriminate software error.

In any case, it is NOT a pleasant experience. I am what you would call a backup-paranoid, which means I always have two recent backups stored in different locations at any time. But still, discovering that your hard work has simply vanished without warning is a bit chilling.
