I think Pltnm06Ghost's comic sums it up pretty well. YouTube's new COPPA policy definitely throws a wrench into our plans. While PlotQuest is definitely aimed at an older crowd (not 12 year olds), we've always prided ourselves on keeping the content fairly all-ages. The potential hit to monetization doesn't worry us, we weren't planning on running ads anyway. However, having to choose between comments being disabled or risking a $42,000 fine if someone at the FTC decides that just because it's animation it must be "made for kids" definitely has us wondering what to do.
We're still working on it and we will finish episode 1, what we do with it however... that remains to be seen. Stay tuned.
Production on the additional scenes is going well. We have all the dialog recorded (big thanks to Anna, Saku, and Paul the quick turn around) and have started clean-up and color on some scenes. Here are a couple of our favorite stills from the new sequence. It's all coming together!
