    Dear Realjock friends,

    As some of you are well aware, gaming is a major hobby of mine. I love to play games, and I love to create games. I find the process of designing a game a perfect mixture of creativity with analysis. I've always wanted to design games for a living, but for a variety of reasons, I've never committed to realizing this dream. Until now.

    Ten months ago, my twin brother, my cousin, and I decided to risk it all and create our own game design company, which we call "Qunify." Now, our first game--CLASH: Rise of Heroes--is complete and we are nearly ready to launch. It has been an exciting journey, and I can't wait to share with you our product. It's also scary, though, as we will be competing head to head in a VERY busy space filled with a lot of HUGE companies. We are a small fish in a large pond. The key to success is to 1) have a great product (check!) and 2) market the hell out of it.

    That is why I'm posting. Although we are proud of our game and strongly believe it has great potential, we have run out of cash to market it. Here's the reality of the situation: No matter how kick-ass a game is, it won't gain any traction if people don't know about it. So, we need help! We have set up an account with a company called Kickstarter, a platform for artists who are seeking money to fund their projects. We have set up a variety of rewards to give to people who decide to donate. For example, for as little as $5, you will get virtual currency to use in our world as well as your name in our credits. For $35, you get a T-Shirt, and for $100, we will immortalize you in our game by creating a character with your likeness.

    You can find out more about our project by clicking on our Kickstarter page, http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/150937481/a-superhero-game-like-no-other. We have created an entertaining video that will tell you about our company and our game. Besides helping us through donations, you can also help FOR FREE by spreading the word about us (forwarding this email, posting the link on Facebook, etc.). We have set up a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/Qunify?ref=ts so that you can "Like" our company as well. The more fans we have, as social networking goes, the more visibility our game will have.

    My brother and cousin are straight, and I bet them that I could raise more money than them because of the power of the gay network! icon_smile.gif

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter, and thank you for any help you can give with making our dream come true!

    All the best,

    DanielQQ

    That's really awesome! Thank you so much! It's tough competing with gajillion dollar companies that will likely build a clone of our game as soon as it starts doing well LOL. I really appreciate your help!

    Sue them when they do. You might not win, but the media coverage will be an excellent form of free advertisement for your game. icon_wink.gif
