I've had the pleasure of doing a bunch more play-test sessions over the last few weeks (and two more to come this weekend!).
Hey there, another BIG order came in today! A friend bought 20 copies of Anomia!
Hey there, I just got my sixth $100 dollar order (for 4 copies of Anomia)! So far, I have pre-sold 93 games to 50 people. YES!
The other night I had a dream that I was scrambling over an unstable rock wall while my 1 year old daughter was sitting on my shoulders. I was holding on to her leg with one hand, and with the other hand I was barely able to climb to the top of the wall and then down to the other side. At one point I got stuck, unable to go forward or backward, for fear of my daughter's safety. Luckily, my wife showed up just in time.
After chastising me for climbing over a 15 foot high rock wall with my daughter on my shoulders she took our daughter safely into her arms. At that point, we found ourselves on an enormous loading dock. My eye was immediately drawn to a
strange looking vehicle which I can only describe as a mix between a Humvee and a Badonkadonk Land Cruiser.
The humvee/badonkadonk suddenly lifted in to the air and began the most amazing series of aerial acrobatics that I have ever seen performed by something that, normally, has no business flying through the air. I found myself fascinated and not a little terrified as it spun around, did loop de loops, came hurtling toward me only to stop on a dime and then rush off in another direction.
Can you say anxiety dream? Anybody care to interpret that for me? I have my own ideas, and they are all about the fascination and fears centered around starting a new business! At least my anxiety dreams have cool post-apocalyptic land cruisers in them!
Well, the orders are starting to come in, so far I have pre-sold 60 games to 29 people, and have raised $1500! Thank you to everyone who has pre-purchased one or more copies of Anomia!!! I still have a long way to go, but his is a wonderful, wonderful start!
I'm so excited to announce that I have officially opened the doors of Anomia Press for business! Hoooray!
Well, it's 1:30 am, Sunday evening. I have just finished setting up the official Anomia Press launch email blast. It will go out tomorrow around 10 am. The email list is composed of around 650 friends, family and acquaintances. Almost a quarter of the people I am sending my launch email to have actually played Anomia!
Hey there, so some very significant progress has been made! I haven't had a moment to spare to post anything here, but taking a minute now to give a general update.
Howdy! Well, the next phase has begun... This is where I start personally emailing everyone I know to tell them what I am up to! I'm not sure how I actually came to know personally, on a first name basis, 600+ people..but wow, I guess I DO know a lot of people!
