I put my submission in to kickstarter.com. So, fingers crossed.
I went through the costs we had in making LZ, factored in how much things cost today. Got some materials quotes and talked to a couple artists to get the ball rolling to be ready when we get this ball rolling.
After doing some research, I found a project planning site that I will be using for this project which allows collaboration, has enough space, and is free: goplan. I found it by looking for "Basecamp alternative". While I would really like the full power and usability of Basecamp, I would really like to reserve the funds I am putting into this project for other things that enhance the player/customer experience.
When you run with limited funds, everything is about going lean. Out here in the middle of the MidAmerica soybean fields, you don't have the millions of angel investing dollars like on the west coast to allow you to blow on things like Segways and Aerons for the staff. You get things done with whatever resources you have and are thankful you have them.
