Hey everyone. As you might know, we’re working on launching a Kickstarter campaign very soon. Part of that effort has been a “rebranding” of this project. I really liked the name Game Pie Advance, but as we move forward, this project needs to stand on its own.
You may already know that Freeplaytech is a name that we’ve used in the past (like Twitter @Freeplaytech), but it had not previously been tied to any particular product line. Now what you know of as the Game Pie Advance (GPA) will become known as the Freeplay Zero, because it is built around the Raspberry Pi Zero. In this way, I guess that the Freeplay Zero will be the first piece of “Freeplay Tech.”
For now, this Game Pie Advance site will still exist. The new Freeplaytech website will become a landing page to support the Kickstarter campaign. If you signed up here to get news, your email address will be added to the new site’s email list. Just think of it like we are moving to a new home. The stuff we’re doing has outgrown our old GPA house, so we’re moving it over to Freeplaytech.com.
I hope it’s not too confusing.
By the way, I keep mentioning the Kickstarter, but I haven’t yet mentioned WHEN it will launch. I know it’s surprisingly soon, but I think we are (fingers crossed) hoping to launch on May 15th. Of course, that might get pushed back, but I’m going to really try to get everything ready by then.
Update: I knew that when I finally said (out loud) the day we’re targeting, something would happen. I have 3 birthdays and a mother’s day in the next 4 days, and the guy helping with video production is also swamped. I hope we can hit the 22nd, now. We still have a lot to do between now and then, so it’s probably for the best. I just hate the wait.
