Sorry it's been so long since we last published an update. 2021 has been an unbelievably busy year for us both personally and professionally. We had the chance to design characters for a Castlevania-style opening animation for an upcoming feature film. We're also in pre-production on a series of animated explainer videos for some exciting research underway at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. Last but not least, Neko spent the summer working at Augenblick Studios as a character layout artist on Teenage Euthanasia which just premiered on Adult Swim.
In the midst of all the busy-ness, we've managed to keep moving forward on PlotQuest. A few weeks ago, we posted some clips from episode 1 on TikTok just to see what would happen. To our surprise and delight people really liked them! After only three weeks of posts we have over 700 followers, 11,000 likes, and our videos have been viewed more than 90,000 times. It looks like we may have found our audience! If you'd like to join in on the madness, we're @popcorn.sundae.
Knowing people are enjoying what we've made definitely makes us want to keep producing new episodes and get the interactive features going asap. It also shows us we need to produce things as quickly as possible. Sadly, animators still can't survive off of likes and views so I guess we'll need to find a way to pay our team. We've doubled down on our efforts to make the best Kickstarter campaign possible which we'll be launching this Tuesday, Oct. 5th.

Thank you for sticking with us on this long, crazy journey. Looking forward to whatever new challenges and adventures that lie ahead!
