Penguemic is Almost Here!
October is nearly here and Penguemic has been making the rounds on indie game sites. We've already been interviewed by Armed Gamer, Indie Game Insider, and also IndieGameMag.com wrote about us! We've also received the attention of the educators who are into games, but overall everyone agrees that our game and ideas are one of a kind. We are definitely happy to see such a positive response for all our hard work!
Development on the game is going full speed ahead with everyone working long hours to make sure that we release a well-polished game. We have prototype builds that are currently being strenuously tested by a select few of individuals, but we will also be working on a build for the public to play before the kickstarter is finished.
Oh! Also, we have more awesome announcements. We’ll be at Indiecade in late October, so if you’re looking to catch a convention, check out our booth and play our game, chat with us, take pictures, or learn more about LearnDistrict! We will also be in the Global Game Jam at MIT early 2014. Last but not least we are scheduled to be at PAX East later 2014 as well, starting the New Year off right.
Subscribe to our newsletter to get the latest updates on our game. If you haven’t seen our kickstarter, go do that right at this moment! We only have 9 days left and things are picking up considerably. That’s all for now, got any questions or suggestions? Follow us on twitter or post on Facebook. (Links below)
Some recent articles about us:
It's been a surreal week at LearnDistrict. We had a visit from guys over at Kickstarted to shoot footage for their crowdfunding documentary. Turns out, we're all pretty camera shy so it took some prodding on their end to get us to talk!
The real big news? Penguemic's Kickstarter campaign is now LIVE! Check it out at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2020158234/penguemic-word-domination
We've been working towards getting this campaign up for weeks - such a relief to get it out there at last. Let us know what you think! And finally, it's PAX week! Laila and Yue are in Seattle soaking up the uh, rain…and have promised the team they'll be streaming awesome stuff from their phones. We'll see if they live up to their promises…
Once PAX is over we'll be posting regular updates on Kickstarter stats - page views, pledges, conversion rates and so forth. So if you're looking to crowdfund for your project, keep checking back. It should be a terrific learning experience for us, and hopefully for you too!
Till next time!
Aaaaand it's Alive!
Thank you for checking out the official LearnDistrict News Page!
This is where we'll be sharing all sorts of updates, so be sure to check often.
Friends and family who've been complaining about not having enough info on LearnDistrict, I'm sorry, it's my (Laila's) bad, and I promise it's going to be different from here on.
It's 5:00AM on Wednesday, August 24th, and Team LearnDistrict is wide awake, chugging away coffee and prepping for the big Kickstarter launch less than 10 days away!
We'll put up the link here, on social media, and pretty much every other piece of the Internet.
Stay tuned folks!
