The first round of press is out for Incredipede and people are reacting really positively! The trailer made it to Reddit’s front page and I’m super excited about that! The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I’ve gotten a bunch of very friendly emails. In short: things are going great! But here’s the thing: even though things are going great a fear lurks in the back of my mind. I fear Internet people.
When I made Fantastic Contraption there was a big positive ruckus of people. It was amazing and wonderful. But for the life of me I couldn’t bring myself to engage with it. There’s something about the weight of hundreds of people (virtual or not) that threatens to smother me. So for Fantastic Contraption I hired my good friend Andy Moore to talk to people for me. He did a great job but he’s moved on to writing his own games now.
This time around I am determined to not run from the challenge. I will try really hard to respond to everyone’s comments, put myself out there and talk about the game. That’s a big reason that this blog exists in the first place.
So, here we go. The rollercoaster begins!
