  • Comments Off on UPstage The New App Designed For Theatre Professionals

Are you a theatre professional looking to connect with the public and promote the play you are working on? There is a new app for that called Upstage. It’s an app specifically designed for theatre professionals and it needs your help on Kickstarter.

Visit their Kickstarter page today for more information:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1617587284/upstage?ref=creator_nav

Who are theatre professionals you might ask? Theatre professionals include theatre companies, actors, production teams, stage crew, playwrites, and even the venue itself. Theatre professionals include Upstage has set a goal of $5,000 in order to develop and go live with this app.

This is such a great idea!

Here is what the app looks like so far:

Add a play, catalog of plays, personnel, calendar, submissions, auditions, rehearsals, and search.

The app essentially lets multiple artists collaborate in real time via the UpStage platform to create and present live theatrical performances.

Industry Features Include:

You can search for plays one wants to produce, if the desired play is not found the theatre company can request submissions from playwrights, search jobs, search for auditions, create and send rehearsal notes, search for venues once you have show. Once you have done all this now you can promote the show and find an audience within 50 miles of your phone. Your actors, production team, and stage crew no longer have to update their resume that they were in your show. Upstage keeps a IMDB record of their work history.

Features For Average Customer:

You’ll get a preview of the play, who’s in the play, rating, playbill, driving directions, call the box office, buy a ticket, leave a review, and see how others review the play.

Any Kickstarter Bonuses?

Yes, there are several for this campaign. $1 gets you honorable mention, $50 gets you an account on UPstage for one year as a playwrite, actor, or production staff. $100 gets you all of the previous plus honorable mention on their website and mention on playbill. $200 gets you a full feature account for one year. The bonuses go all the way up to $5,000. This pledge gets you entry into Upstage introductory rates for the next 7 years, listing on the web site, listing on the playbill at annual festival in Chicago, listed in credits of their TV show, and they will create TV episodes for your plays for two years which air on cable access.

Conclusion:

As a consumer I could definitely see myself checking this app regularly. I’m actually going to see West Side Story next month, but it would be nice to see additional plays at smaller theaters. Whenever I’ve seen a play in the past I usually search the largest theaters in my city or Ticketmaster directly. Since this app will allow more theater productions to happen me as a customer will be able to see a greater number of plays.

Upstage began development back in 2003 by programmer Douglas Bagnall and is still one of a kind. It’s the only platform that is all things theatre under one roof. The Upstage team have worked on this project for the past six years to perfect it and get it ready for this Kickstarter moment. Upstage is expected to arrive October 2019. Consider supporting their Kickstart campaign today. They have already created the product so there is no risk of not receiving delivery.

  • Comments Off on End Messy Cables Forever For Just $29

As I’m writing this blog post there are literally cables everywhere.

Kickstarter Cable Management

I plan on organizing my space very soon, there is something calming about an organized office. Kind of like making your bed in the morning an organized office starts your day out on the right foot.

The cable solution is unlike anything I’ve seen before. The cable system is made up of modules that connect together behind one’s desk and fit together to hide and protect all the cables on one’s desk.

Here’s what makes the system so special:

– The long module contains your main cables.

– The T-module splits the cable in different directions.

– The corner module splits cable out in different directions in different corners of the desk.

– There are extension modules that one can use to fit the system to any size desk or room.

– The big module support of 5-8 cables, the medium module supports 3-5 cables, and the small modules support 1-2 cables.

The pieces fit together like LEGO blocks. You can customize them in virtually any way you want to. It’s not just limited to one’s desk either. There’s a store where I live called the Container Store, it’s a store dedicated to finding organizing solutions. They definitely need this cable management system by GreenLanternLabs on their shelves.

So what are you waiting for? Get your space organized in 2019. These things start shipping in February 2019.

  • Comments Off on Dungeon Dreams Roguelike-Style Romance JRPG On Kickstarter

In grade school and later in high school I was a HUGE fan of the RPG games. Especially games like Dragon Quest and the Final Fantasy Series. I used to play RPG games on Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and later Playstation and XBOX. That’s why I love featuring RPG Kickstater campaigns on the blog. There is a new RPG Kickstater called Dungeon Dreams with some of the retro touches I saw in my youth. Dungeon Dreams is a roguelike-style romance JRPG. The current goal of this campaign is $2,215, so at about 50% funded they need your help.

Consider supporting Dungeon Dreams on Kickstater today:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dungeondreamsrpg/dungeon-dreams-roguelike-style-romance-jrpg

Kickstater New Video Game RPG

Dungeon Dreams is designed to be like a roguelike-style romance Japanese Role Playing Game. What makes this game different from many others is your choices in the game matter, your choices change the outcome of the game. Dungeon Dreams features a flexible story system, randomly generated dungeon, town building, relationship/dating sim, and more.

Additional Features

65+ titled sub-quests, 15 recruitable party members + 10 temporary guests/summons, 5 romance options (including marriage), 35+ classes, 12+ minigames, 45 pieces of furniture, 8+ building opportunities, 250+ skills to learn, 500+ pieces of equipment, and more being added soon.

The Characters

I think one of the key features of the most successful RPG games is the artwork. That’s one of the reason I enjoyed the Final Fantasy games so much. The Dungeon Dreams designers you can tell spent countless hours designing the characters.

This is just a sample of the quality of characters/artwork you’ll see in the game.

The reward level goes all the way up to $123, it includes original party member, game copy, artbook, 4 HD wallpapers, soundtrack, and name in credits.

Comfortable Travel Stretch T-Shirt Kickstarter

  • Comments Off on Comfortable Travel Stretch T-Shirt Kickstarter

If you are like me you travel frequently for business on lower cost airlines, skipping the business class. The issue you’re probably running into is tiny, cramped airplane seats. Airlines are uncomfortable enough, you don’t want your clothes to make the experience of flying even worse. That’s where the idea of “Travel Stretch T-Shirts” comes in. These shirts features luxury performance fabrics that will fit perfectly on any business traveling man. It’s available now on Kickstarter.

Check out these Travel Stretch T-Shirts on Kickstarter today:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/superstretchshirt/worlds-most-comfortable-super-stretch-shirts-for-t

Travel Shirts Kickstarter

The clothing brand behind the Kickstarter shirt is The Stretch Suit, a British fashion brand on a mission to develop the world’s most comfortable clothes, to bridge the gap between work, travel, and play. I like to think of them as yoga pants for men.

Why These Shirts? What’s Wrong With My Old Travel Shirt?

What’s wrong with cotton dress up shirts is that they absorb moisture (Sweat). Again, if you are like me, walking miles from your car, through the airport, through security, to your plane, eating junk airport food, feeling uncomfortable and cramped in your airline seat you sweat. So why not solve that issue with a new type of shirt designed for performance and comfort with its lightweight moisture wicking fabric used in footballer’s and tennis players shirts.

Like the trend with yoga pants for women, they caught on because people tried them, they were so comfortable and dare I say fashionable that women vowed to never go back to traditional clothing. The same is true for business dress travel attire. Just try one of these shirts and the difference should be so striking that men everywhere won’t want to go back to traditional cotton.

Why This Shirt

Are There Rewards?

So you are interested in getting this shirt, but want to know first if there are rewards first. Yes, I can say there are several reward levels to this $3,575 Kickstater Campaign (Already met goal). $1.43 USD gets you a huge thank you plus your name on their mailing list. The recommended level CashSherpa vouches for is the $127 level and that gets you all previous plus a Stretch Shirt. I say if you do in fact travel and wear a dress shirt/business suit while traveling try out this article of clothing and see what you think. If you just want an extra shirt in your closet I’d say pass. These shirts are for the serious traveler or active businessman.

Conclusion

The demanding, fast-paced lifestyle we live in requires men to be adaptable, flexible and enduring; just like The Super Stretch Shirt. Consider contributing to the Super Stretch Shirt Kickstater campaign.

Ae’ra Sunburn Action Fantasy RPG On Kickstarter

  • Comments Off on Ae’ra Sunburn Action Fantasy RPG On Kickstarter

Back in the day I was a huge fan of RPG like like Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior for Nintendo. Now there’s a whole new generation of RPGs not being funded by Nintendo, Playstation, or XBOX, but funded on sites like Kickstarter. I’d like to introduce a new Kickstater campaign that’s trying to launch a action, fantasy RPG called Ae’ra Sunburn. Check out this vibrant, fantasy world RPG on Kickstarter today:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1989649655/aera-sunburn?ref=2cfwek

Kickstater Sunburn RPG

Anyone that has played RPGs knows how involving they are so you might be thinking why should I stop my current RPG and play this one? What makes Ae’ra Sunburn different? Ae’ra Sunburn is set in a lush, vibrant fantasy world, core features are co-op, exploring, crafting and a real-time modern combat system.

More On Features

– Dynamic combat system. Fight in your own style. “You will have to think, plan your steps and attack-patterns. You will have to dodge, parry, counter attack, use stealth and environments to triumph in the fights.”

– Crafting with style in that you can creating pretty much anything you need.

– Exploring new ways of playing a top down ARPG.

– Unique way characters evolve.

– Co-op/play with your friends.

– Rich storytelling.

– Third person screen, will switch to this view as action dictates.

– 40+ hours of game play.

The makers of the game encourage exploration of the environment. Also, they encourage users to develop unique attack patterns.

Characters

Players can choose 1 of 4 characters with their own unique stories and abilities. Characters include Cyan, Jade, Aisa, and Za’rach. If I ever get my hands on this game I’m definitely picking Za’rach he looks like a beast! He’s actually “master of the beasts” after all according to the game story.

What Do The Environments Look Like?

The game environments have come a long way since I was playing RPG games. This game looks amazing. Just check out some of these cool places you get to explore in Ae’ra Sunburn.

As you can see the graphics are extremely detailed and lifelike. Many more examples on their KS page.

How’s The Music?

If there is one thing I enjoyed about playing RPG games it’s the music. The music was one of the reason I loved Final Fantasy games so much. Right now they are working on getting the amazing artist, Kim Karlsson to produce tracks on the game. They also have help from other musicians, their latest edition is Robin Johnsen, a DJ with a “really great flow of feelings.” Depending on the success of the Kickstarter campaign the RPG will be voice covered as well.

Are There Any Rewards?

Yes, this is a very professional campaign, no aspect has been overlooked including many more than fair rewards. $6 gets you end credit thanks, exclusive updates, and a big thank you from the team. The rewards go all the way up to about $1,822 USD where you’ll get 100 copies of the game and your name/logo in the beginning of the title. My favorite pledge level is $18 where you get a copy of the game and end credit thanks. If nothing else support at this level.

Conclusion

So as you can see this is a great, promising RPG game, but all they need is more support to get this thing to 100%. Video games to develop require a lot of different kinds of work. There’s visuals, story, music, game design, voice over, the list goes on and on. The team is working on the most important aspects of the game, but to get it polished to the level of perfection they will need support from Kickstater backers like you.
