First TCG Based Anime Story With RPG Elements Taking Game To Heart of MMO Gameplay via Kickstarter

The first TCG based on fantasy anime story, taking the TCG game into the heart of MMO game play with RPG elements.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

I don't begin to understand much of this Kickstarter project created by Totally Awesome Games in Oklahoma, but creating games from anime with RPG elements (whatever they are) sounds cool. 

Great lesson here for startups. When you pitch ideas GO SLOW. Remember not everyone viewing your Kickstarter campaign will know what RPG elements are. Over explain especially when asking for money.

I like the video once we are out of the car. Shooting someone talking in a car isn't something I would advise. Its distracting and worrisome (will he crash lol).

Where is the physical space where these game designers work? If they don't work in a cool space together I would have shot at least part of the video in a space that looks like a game design company. I'm not saying be inauthentic, but when asking for $75K best to create confidence.

Investor confidence is based on a number of factors including:

* What you say.
* How you say it.
* What others say.
* How others say what they say.

The problem here is we step directly into the middle of a conversation I only half understand. I plan to give $100 because I'm intrigued, but there is a real ART to marketing especially crowdfunding marketing that is mostly missed here.

Hope these guys make it despite the confusion and will make my usual offer to TAG, Inc. If they would like help with their marketing contact me and I will be glad to contribute ideas Free.
