It was fourth and long. Mere seconds were left on the clock. The crowd was growing antsy; the team, even more so. It seemed that the game was already lost.
And then…you pulled it off. You, the fans.
Thank you. Thank you so much!
Thanks to you, we raised the $7,500 needed to implement Gridiron Heroes' multiplayer component and bring you the social-flavored retro football action you deserve. In the coming weeks, we'll be contacting all our backers to confirm any needed information (including what names they'd like to name their players in the game, and what positions to assign their studs), and we're currently projecting that the upcoming beta—open only to the backers—will start in mid-April.
But in the meantime, I think we're all just going to kick back and celebrate our success. Maybe lounge by the pool, sipping out of a cup with a little frilly umbrella in it. Maybe work on our tans, just a bit.
…Nah, that's not really true. We've got a game to finish! Back to work, everyone!
About Gridiron Heroes
Gridiron Heroes is a brand-new American football simulator for Facebook which takes the classic simplicity of Tecmo Bowl gameplay and makes it a social experience. Players take control of their team from its inception, naming it and assigning team colors and logos, before being placed in a league with all their Facebook buddies. There, it's up to the player to manage every aspect of their team's performance, from training players and developing strategy and tactics, to managing the stadium itself and even setting hot dog prices.
