I really wish the @kickstarter iOS app made it easier to message all the people in a backer level instead of telling me I can't bid on myslf

Which reminds me, I should send out a message to my Kickstarter backers that there's a new version!

I'm pretty proud of the Cyborg Tyrannosaur mini boss, even if it still needs more animation frames to look pro.

Looking forward to the Madison Indies meetup tomorrow! (Run by @AeornFlippout) We're all sharing demos! I'm excited to show my progress!
