WOW. What a crazy couple of weeks it’s been: George and I gave up sleep for two weeks to get “Car Jumper” built for the CREATE game jam, our YouTube trailer has skyrocketed to 8,800+ views, and we’ve gotten international press. I’m still wrapping my head around that last bit. It all started with a mention in The Verge, followed by mentions in New Zealand, Spain, and Russia, before culminating with a feature in the “Daily Humor” section of a Hungarian website.
Now that we know for sure that we are not among the Finalists, things are bound to calm down a little (at least for a while). We knew going into this competition that it would be a “win” no matter what, but we had no idea how huge of a success it would be for us personally. Development on “Car Jumper” has continued since the submission deadline, and an announcement will be made soon regarding new features and functionality (which will be reflected in the playable prototype as well). We can’t even begin to thank everyone for their support as we begin to chase this insane dream.
Seriously. You guys rock.
-Ross and George
