Inaria now has $140 of funding on 8-Bit Funding! I never expected that much!
Putting Inaria on 8-Bit Funding was absolutely the best thing I could have done for the project. It really motivates me to know that so many people are willing to donate just to see the project finished. I expect to get a lot done this weekend. Plus…anyone know of a good chiptune composer? I might actually be able to pay one now!
Sooooo, if I do multiple donations of $10, can I get my name in the game multiple times?
I already have 1 so far 🙂
I’ve never heard of a chiptune. What exactly is a chiptune?
I was frustrated that 8-bit funding had a bug that didn’t allow you to add more than the minimum amount for a perk.
Then they finally got it fixed, and when I did submit my funding, I’m apparently not credited for that perk on the site. They said they’d let you know, but so far the site is not ready for prime-time.
Thank you guys so much. Just let me know here or through email what perk you chose and I’ll be sure to get it in the game for you.
Oh, and Handshakes, “chiptune” is a shorthand term for music made using a synthesizer chip for a home computer or console. The most famous sound chip is probably the SID chip for the Commodore 64. There still exists a thriving community of musicians who still make music for this hardware, or music that sounds like it. The Hero Core soundtrack is one recent excellent example.
I picked the top perk: my name in a game. B-)
