The Gamers / The Gamers: Dorkness Rising / The Gamers: Hands of Fate


Looks like we sold out the open Displaced Army slot today!
[size=5] Yay![/size]

Now we’re back on track again!
I knew that slot wouldn’t stay open for long, I mean it’s an on screen speaking roll, which tends to not last long going by the JQ2 kickstarter.

We anticipate that it will take about 4000 Gamers fans to make Gamers 3 happen. We’re currently at 1519 pledges, but we know that the rest of you are out there. If you like the Gamers films, this is your opportunity to make the next one possible. Without your support, we can’t do it and remain independent. Remember, our projects are Fan Supported so that we don’t have to sell out, change our scripts for clueless executives, or beg for Hollywood dollars. You allow us to make films that don’t need to pander, that don’t make fun of gamers, and that have brought thousands of new people to the hobby. And if you’re on the fence, Kickstarter doesn’t withdraw money until the campaign ends, so there’s still time to set aside the money you’d spend on a couple of coffees and pledge to bring Lodge, Joanna, Cass, Leo, and Gary back to the screen.[/quote]

They finally started adding Dorkness Rising vids to YT again!
It’s been, what… 9 months since the last one was added?

I guess we can chalk it up to being swamped with other things going on.

I forgot that they’re actually filming part of Hands of Fate at GenCon, before the Kickstarter is finished.

If it seems quiet around here, it’s because we’re shooting part of the next Gamers movie in just four days. The. Next. Gamers. Movie!

So yeah, we’re super busy getting ready for a long, crazy weekend of Unmitigated Awesome.[/quote]

And we gained another $10k contributor, double WooHoo!
I wonder how much we’re going to pull from their time at Gen Con Indy when they start doing major promotions for Hands of Fate.

Well, they’re at GenCon now, which is also filled with Hands of Fate filming!
Though it looks like we’ve been slow going lately.

We’re going to get a Hands of Fate trailer in a couple weeks!

[quote]Zombie Orpheus Entertainment

Incredible first day at Gen Con! We’re totally shooting a movie. Who wants to see a Gamers 3 trailer in a couple weeks?[/quote]



Looks like the Gamers Live panel that was tonight was HUGE!


Since this applies to The Gamers as well.

Greetings to everyone who just joined us here on Facebook! Now that you’re here, don’t forget to pledge your support for Gamers 3. If you saw us shooting at Gen Con Indy, you know that this movie is going to be something special. Pledges aren’t withdrawn until the campaign is over on September 7th, so there’s no reason not to pledge $10 now to help make this movie a reality. You can also help by boosting the signal - like, share, blog, podcast, or comment! There were a ton of fans at Gen Con who hadn’t heard about this campaign who were thrilled that a new Gamers movie was in the works; boosting the signal if you haven’t already is the best way to help us bring in new supporters. We only have 18 days left, so if you’ve been planning on letting the world know about our campaign, now is the time![/quote]
