I guess I wont know until I try, Dark Ages flew under radar, so will see. I will however be shooting a live action teaser to get people excited about the project! very soon!
Yeah, definitely a good idea to have an updated proof of concept! I'm looking forward to seeing it.
I do really suggest looking into these campaigns though - running them and getting them out there sounds like a complete chore.
Perhaps Patreon would be the way to gain financial support rather than a KICKSTARTER page that comes up more easily in general searches. I'm the last person to suggest something sneaky but when a company hates on a fan-made piece of work that isn't making them any money, they've gone too far. Half the fun of creating a universe is the ability of people to tell their own stories in that universe.
Also, here's another fan of Redemption looking forward to a future installment. May I suggest a break in the trend and not go the route of trilogy, just a sequel/prequel and move on to something else?
