    If we do go down the Kickstarter route again we'll do so a LOT better prepared next time, like you say we'll have stuff to show from day 1! But lets see, we want to look at all of the options - and we will keep you all updated as things happen. I've had one conversation about funding already and another couple are imminent. fingers crossed!

    We did actually think about doing that interceptor - and would not rule it out from a future campaign. The truth is that both Sony & Epic would get a cut from money raised that way immediately so we would get less from that than it would look. On point 1 - yup we will look at as many avenues for raising cash as we can, and as to point 3 - we're on it, but some things will be slower going than others

    They are all great suggestions - will put on my list for further thought - tyvm :) And yeah apologies for the fact that the website did not manage to give a live total - we had intended for it to be like that, but functionally wise it was difficult to manage believe it or not just due to tedious details of who on the team had access to what etc - It would be an easy one to fix in future. Btw - in the end we got $4325 on paypal, which brought the total to just over $80k

    Hey Shadow-Runner, we are looking at all of that - we defo would not run another kickstarter without having more to show. The problem is that we have to survive while we do that, so selling the neotopia hub apartment should hopefully help to some degree there - and then their is the investment angle. We'll keep you posted - oh and cheers for the video link :)

    Advertising and corporate sponsorship is on the list we are researching :)

    The apartment *should* be published in both NA & EU and comes with all the rewards, so hopefully that issue will be solved :) We'd love to do more commerce items, but the apartment will be the last one I am afraid as it's on the last publish of new commercial content in Home :-(

    Hey Whetsit Tuya (nice handle btw) - different things are obvious to different people, we are sorely conscious that we could have done many things better, but you live & learn. As to not being impressed by the WIP Avatar benchmark - fair enough - tbh we wanted to show something finished, not still work in progress, so it did not really accurately reflect our ambition, the situation was such that we felt we had to show you where we were going with it even though we had not got there yet.

    Hey Dave, Could the Spunland pshome items help fund Neotopia aswell if we bought them? I wasn't sure lol. Also will you be making any ps4 and ps3 Neotopia profile avatars aswell as background theme's? It would be cool if you did as i think many fellow Neotopian's would love to purchase them! :)

    I'm afraid we have no choice but to resort to virtual crime to acquire our needed funding. I'll take 4 or 5 Neotopians and knock over the Paradise Springs Casino. We'll wear police uniform disguises. Someone take a couple people and hide under the bridge at Acorn Park and mug passer-bys...and steal their bicycles. Everyone else, go to the Hub and demand everyone's virtual lunch money.

    Note...probably not a good idea to wave the neotopia flag at the time...

    Yeah...they advertised a lot of features early on, that never made it into Home. MP3 streaming on Home would've been awesome...and much better than that Radio iO crap. And we ended up with Crackle Loot TV's, instead of being able to stream our own video files from the HDD. Citing copyright infringement laws as the excuse. Pffft, whatever. At least with the PS4, we can now play our own MP3's while on Neotopia. So, that's a start in the right direction. Although, the dev's could still develop a MP3 jukebox for streamin IN Neotopia, so our friends can hear what we hear. That would be nice. LOL

    No problem. Glad you like the video. Hope it inspires ya'll in the right direction. I know once you guys get momentum, youre gonna have some awesome stuff to show off. I cant wait to see what ya got coming, down the pipeline. I'll be buying the Neotopia Hub space, on Home....but it will be the last thing I buy...unless ya'll release more Home content before November 12th. As I understand it...Home content is scheduled to cease publication on the 12th, so there wont be any new stuff to buy, after that. And on December 3rd...noone will be able to even download anything from the stores, on Home. So, whatever ya'll release between now and the 12th...I'll buy to support Neotopia. Other than that...Im not wasting anymore money on Home. Good luck, guys....and DONT GIVE UP!

    Actually I was feeling the same way Maxx. Mad Munki and the rest of us have learned so much participating in the fund raiser. Hey, we learned a wealth of information and we get our money back, win, win.

    The Wright Brothers didn't build an airplane and have it flying in a month.

    I have great optimism and faith in the future of Neotopia.

    Yeah, any funds generated from Spunland content will also ultimately go towards neotopia. I personally just wouldn't shout about that because I don't want to confuse the issue (if that makes sense). As to PS3 & PS4 Avatars - will look into that ASAP, its a great idea and tbh not the first time its been suggested. Thanks for your input!
