Our team is very small and are working on this project in our spare time. We have our framework in place and are working art assets, but need to hire some folks to help us with some game mechanics that we just can't handle (coding is not our strong suit!) If we can get to $500 or so, we can hire support to help us with the coding for our first release.
to reach the Goal
New dedicated render system. Yes, the renders... they take forever. Right now we have donated PC's that are cranking out a whopping 2 full scene renders a day. We'd like to procure a dedicated render system so we can stop sharing systems.
