The Occupy Chess Video Game

I've mentioned my Kickstarter project numerous times.  Well, it got approved, and I launched it tonight!

It's the Occupy Chess Video game, and you can check it out here!

Put simply, it's a video chess game with figures based on the two sides of the Occupy movement: the 99%, and the 1%.  You can learn all about it on the project page.

As a note, Wolf-Pac is specifically mentioned in the video because I believe strongly in what they're doing, and they're an organization I hope to help out in the future.  The pledges for the project are earmarked for the creation of the game itself, of course.  Once I'm able to sell copies, I hope to make enough that I can actually support Occupy causes.

People who pledge will help to honor the 99%, all the protesters who participated in the Occupy movement, and the Occupy members who continue to do great things.

Kickstarter Images

My friend who's doing the line art for my Kickstarter project (and I will share his name, of course, once the project is live!) sent me five brilliant images today!  A few more and I'll have enough to make the video.  Exciting!

Kickstarter Progress

Progress is happening on my Kickstarter project!

No, the project isn't live yet.  It's at the stage where I'm getting getting work done on it, so that the public can see it's really moving along, and that it just needs funding to get finished.

A good friend of mine is doing line art of the characters, and has sent me two sketches.  They look GREAT. His art will be featured in the video and in the final product.

I've also written a few drafts of the video script.  I need to revise it more, but that's coming along nicely.

Anyway, keep an eye on this space for more information!
