Robotech Academy Kickstarter Adds "Enemy Spy" Tier For Haters
posted on by Bamboo Dong
In what is perhaps a brilliant strategy move on the part of Harmony Gold's Robotech Academy pilot Kickstarter campaign, they've added a $2 "Enemy Spy" tier for all those who "hate Harmony Gold" and "hate Robotech."
The tier will allow haters to participate in the comments section of the campaign and argue to their hearts' content... all while tipping some money towards the funding goal.
The story is based on the work of the late American producer Carl Macek. Macek is best known for producing Robotech. He also worked on the dubbing of many anime projects from Captain Harlock and the Queen of a Thousand Years (redubbed and edited adaptation of Captain Harlock and Queen Millennia) to more recently, Bleach and Naruto. His other dubbing production credits include Vampire Hunter D, Robot Carnival, My Neighbor Totoro, and Aura Battler Dunbine.
Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles director Tommy Yune is producing the project, Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles writer Ford Riley is penning the script, Robotech: Love Live Alive director Greg Snegoff is directing the voices, Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles composer Scott Glasgow is in charge of music, and CreaVision will create the computer animation.
The campaign currently has over $130,000; it needs $500,000 to be funded.
