Unknown Realm - new C64 RPG on Kickstarter!

I know it is a bit lemony, but I have been excited ever since Mermaid posted the news on fb (no, she is NOT doing the gfx; or is she? ;-), so I couldn't resist sharing it here as well:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stirringdragongames/unknow..

This sure looks AWESOME!

I guess the main reason for the huge amount of pledges is due to the game running on PC as well (along with a native c64 version). Retro seems to be in fashion these days. However if it was only for the C64, I doubt it would have reached that >£65k

Hi Everyone, Here is a message from the coder/creator of the game:

"Can you do me a favor and post a comment in their Unknown Realm thread that I've been trying to register multiple times (as 'bruceg') since our launch to but someone keeps rejecting my application.

Thanks I'd appreciate it!"

-Bruce.

this case is pretty clear to me - if all you want is advertising your product... then no.

Excerpt from official reasons for not approving: "Not a scener, no releases."

Well, I took over the advertising already. :-)
And I do believe anyone developing for the C64 nowadays could be considered a "scener", commercial or not. Or would we refuse e.g. a certan Gideon Z. an account here as well, because he is actually asking money for the Ulimate? Oh, but hang on, he designed some levels for that 1989 Giana Sisters hack - he is lucky someone found and uploaded it, then. ;)
No matter, I just hope this game gets the support needed, and I'm sure it will become an instant classic. You'll all be welcome in my tavern. 8-)

I agree wholeheartedly, but how does an admin know in advance that someone wants to register just to advertise a product?

They don't, but maybe we should give them the benefit of a doubt? It doesn't seem particularly fair to have a discussion thread about their game with no way for them to reply.

The registration page doesn't mention any rules either, apart from expecting people to be already associated with the C64 scene, whatever that means.
