This is the last time I'll bug you folks for feedback! The Awfully Cheerful Engine! launches tomorrow, and the Kickstarter page is pretty much ready. I'd super appreciate some last sets of eyes on it!

It's looking good!

My only major comment after going through is that in a lot of shots, it looks like the "core book" (ACE #1, Introducing the Awfully Cheerful Engine) is a separate book from the "comic book" ACE #1.

This is most evident in the first phot, where you have ACE #1 shot in a profile where it looks like a bigger rulebook, and then the five issues (incl. ACE #1) separately after it.

Otherwise, love it what I'm seeing and reading. :)
 



ERRRG!! So, I am in the market for a Pulp game. I was torn between Trinity Adventure (I just missed the Kickstarter), Broken Compass (Kickstarter currently now on) and as an outlier Hollow World Expedition......

Now, I have to consider this one. It is compelling. So Good Job! You have made it tempting and competitive versus other options.

As someone with a growing collection of Pulp games. I have backed Trinity Adventure and both Broken Compass Kickstarters. Plan on backing ACE.

I do recommend Broken Compass, it is a very nice, simple system that really fits Pulp adventures.

I guess my question is -- is the page clear that actiony pulp stuff is totally part of this? I'm slightly worried that the Kickstarter page text might appear too oriented towards kids' cartoons, and while I want to make it clear that that is part of it, and it's a fantastic game for kids, I don't want people to think it's just that and that grown-ups can't have completely different types of games with it.

It could be a highlighted a bit more. It is clear to me but I have been following the ACE articles here. If you would take a suggest from a Kickstarter backer, I would add something explaining how while kid friendly, there are grown-up gaming possiblities.

I've added a line --

"ACE! is designed for everybody, from kids who enjoy playing talking animals, to adults who like playing pulp heroes fighting eldritch horrors and Nazis."

Think that does the trick?

Works for me but to be fair I was already planning to be a day one backer.

Mission accomplished. I am looking at this for my grown up gamers and our mid-teen kids. It looks quick and easy but not "simply for kids".

Wow, That's strange but it's happened before with me (perhaps my older browser?). I click on the KS page and I cannot see the content, Says KS and the url but nada.Reloaded twice but still the same. This happened with another KS page as well, but I thought that was a fluke. @Morrus I want to support this KS. So if I can't connect directly upon launch, is there another way that you can think for me to do so? PM me if need be. Sorry to be a pain!

Update: No matter what I try I cannot get to the Ace KS Page. Very confounding!!

I've had this happen to me before with Kickstarter, and it still does sometimes. The only things I can recommend are to either try a different browser, or (if you have a HDCP server or VPN) use a different IP address.

Hopefully when it goes live it will work for you! If not, we'll figure something out!

The final thing I'm doing for this Kickstarter is uploading a demo video to YouTube. It's nearly 6GB. Currently says 2.5 hours, but it's kinda going up and down a bit...

In theory, launching in 3 hours. If the YouTube upload is finished by then!

Yeah. My wife tried from her computer and got the same result. It may be the IP but I don't know why. I can see all of ENPublishing's other pages, what KSs you've supported, etc, just not what KS you are currently running! I sure would like my name and support attached, but if need be can just Paypal? Jeesh!

Overall I love it. I do wish the main picture wasn't behind the start > of the video.
