Well, it is now clear that Orphanage of Fear won’t fund this time around. I could be down about this, but I don’t think I am. In less than two weeks I’ll be bringing Orphanage with me to Metatopia to show to a whole new group of people. I’ll be setting up new reviews, making adjustments, and trying to get more artwork done before relaunch.
I’ll improve the graphics, make sure the Facebook test group is in the main message of the page so people can see it and, hopefully, join. I’ll also manage the test group, set up messages, and try to get games going so people can see. I’ll likely do the same on Board Game Geek’s forum, which was a missed opportunity.
So, no, I don’t think failing this is too brutal a defeat. I’ll learn from it, grow from it, and come back stronger and better.
