Questions, Communication, and Streams

The first 2 weeks after the Kickstarter has been pretty busy for the team. We took a break the day after the Kickstarter and that weekend, but the following week we spent a lot of time planning out the rest of the project since we had a better sense of our budget. After that, the focus has been identifying roles we need filled and recruiting for them. That process will take a while…
We ran into a huge problem with Twitch and lost all of our past streams. If you recorded any of the VOD’s, please let us know (leave a comment below) so we can push them up to our Youtube channel. Streaming is kind of a new thing to us and there was a bit we didn’t know about Twitch’s retention policy :-(
PayPal and Crowdfunding
We’re still working on getting PayPal and our ongoing crowdfunding stuff set up. Our business folks that run Nightdive had to go through some legal stuff to make everything was friendly for taxes and such, which has taken time. They’re almost done on their side with things, and we’re hoping to have PayPal and ongoing crowdfunding fully set up around September at the latest. We should also see BackerKit coming online around then too.
As most of you have noticed, our communication on Kickstarter could be better. We started this as a small team and have been overwhelmed by the volume of messages we need to respond to. We’re working on getting better with it, starting by assigning specific folks to manage certain aspects of social media. Jonathan Peros will be our main person in charge of responding to Kickstarter comments and messages, and he should be catching up on stuff soon.
Also, we're working on bringing the NDS site up with forums so we can have a central place for making announcements. Hoping to have that ready by the end of the month.
We have a lot of fun streaming stuff for you folks and chatting, so we’re going to work on a regular schedule with planned events. Since Twitch has caused us some problems, we’re going to experiment with Youtube Gaming streams to see what our fans think. We did some tests last night and it looks like the video quality is better and there is less of a delay compared to Twitch.
We’ll be doing a stream tonight, Friday Night Dives, where I will be diving into No Man’s Sky with some other folks on the team heckling me. Feel free to tune in and ask us questions too. We’ll answer what we can depending on who’s around.
