Steampunk Holmes project underway at Kickstarter ("A Decidedly Nautical Appearance" [NOBL]). With support from a variety of sites such as Geeks Are Sexy, AppAdvice and the Baker Street Babes, there was certainly a good deal of attention drawn to the project, which needed $29,000 pledged by the deadline of May 3.
When we wrote about the Steampunk Holmes Kickstarter, only a little more than 50% of the funds had been raised. Last evening, with 41 hours to go before the project pledge period ended, the project met its funding goals. In a note to backers, the team wrote:
"Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent."As of the writing of this entry, there are 879 backers for a total of $29,905 pledged. What a thoroughly satisfying conclusion to what seemed like an insurmountable task just two days ago.
Steampunk Holmes is 100% funded. Thanks to all our fans and followers. Thanks to those who posted and tweeted and blogged about us. Thanks to YOU.
