The Kickstarter has officially launched! We've got some cool digital rewards planned including an exclusive backers-only episode, "Doggo's Fate", featuring pixel art by the one and only Balmsold. As you probably guessed, backers will get to decide the outcome of Doggo's second fight with Killjoy Kaiju. Did Ivy's enchantment make the difference or is it the big game over this time? We also have some physical rewards as part of our stretch goals which can be unlocked simply by helping us spread the word about the campaign.
Of course, we're all about interactivity so during the campaign we'll be running the interactive murder mystery, "A Killer Deal" in the updates section. Backers at any level will be able to vote and Tommy Benoist will be writing and illustrating the story in real time with new chapters published on Mondays and Fridays.
You can find out all the details at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/popcornsundae/plotquest-an-interactive-animated-web-series the pitch video is also available on YouTube. We hope you'll check it out and consider supporting us as we make a brand new type of animated series.

It’s been a while! Apologies for the radio silence these past few weeks. We’ve been incredibly busy putting the finishing touches on lip-sync and animation. We’re pleased to announce that we’re nearing the finish line! Our plan is to release episode 1 in October so stay tuned for an official date. In the meantime, here are some screenshots of what the finished show will look like.
Also, we’ll be doing some panels at Archon again this year, so if you happen to be there definitely stop by and say hi. Here are the details on those:

Saturday, Oct. 5, 7 pm – 8 pm, Salon 4 (Gateway Center)
Part web series, part interactive fiction, PlotQuest invites the audience to shape the narrative of this animated story by voting on what we animate next.

That’s all for now, more to come soon!
