[alpha] we need your help to finish Tidepool « Tidepool News

Hi everyone,

After some time off with family in Florida, I’m back coding Tidepool again, aiming for the all-important public alpha release on September 1st.

Between now and then, I’ll be adding in-game sketching, animating, and 3D structures (alpha 2).  I’ll also add Scratch-and-Etoys-style scripting, so players will be able to program their creations. (alpha 3).

At that point, Tidepool will be ready for the public  … it’ll be a scaled down Scratch / Minecraft hybrid, which should be of interest.

Unfortunately, Paula and I are at the edge of our funding.  We run out next month, just before going public and starting our crowd funding campaigns.

Please consider contributing $50 or $100 to help us get to the public release.  All contributions will someday be paid forward from profits to educational groups in Haiti.   They likely won’t be tax-deductible (as Tidepool is a for-profit venture), but I promise the money will go to good use, both now and later.

If you know of anyone else who might like to contribute, please pass this along.  Contributing doesn’t require a special account.

Thank you!
