You can view the video and details Here.

Quote:
A Long Journey

But what is it about? In short, Ithaka of the Clouds is a game strongly inspired by the sensual, philosophical and historical poetry of Constantine Cavafy (1863-1933), one of the greatest modern Greek poets. It's not a direct adaptation and knowledge of his works will not be necessary, but their themes will be strongly drawn upon.

Ithaka of the Clouds is the story of two lovers and their travels across the Lands of Dream as they seek the legendary city of the title. And it so happens that the two lovers are both trolls, creatures that human stories have often painted as frightening barbarians. The journey will take them through many lands, where they will meet many people and creatures and face many challenges.


Happy Gaming and goods luck Jonas!

Hi,

The timing could not be worse, but there seems to be a problem with Indiegogo and contributions showing up as they should. GRRRR! It's definitely on their side, and I've let them know. I hope they get back to me soon!

I'll let you know when they do.

Hey Jonas!

I've been a fan of Jonas' work for several years now and I'm so glad to see this project finally seeing the light of day.

Hm, now I just have to decide whether I can justify paying $20 extra to have my name in the game... Financially I know I shouldn't but it's veeeery tempting...

Everything is working again. Apparently there was a problem on Paypal's side that caused the problem.

Yay!

It's going pretty well, even though we've had fairly little coverage from gaming blogs so far. So many nice people. smile

I haven't played any of Kyratzes games yet, but that pitch video alone made me pledge for his new game. A brilliant pitch video.

Down to the last ten days of the Indiegogo in case anyone missed this.

They are still short of their goal.

You can view the campaign here.

Almost there. Only $476 short and 9 days left to pledge. Should be possible, but the project needs more exposure.

Yeah - I think we'll make it, but exposure is tricky. A lot of big sites just ignore our emails, because the game is too unusual.
