1) So close I can taste it...but.
"Never count your chickens before they hatch." Have you heard that expression? It means never assume you have something until it's in your hands. In the case of funding for PW-X the reality of that expression is becoming crystal clear to me. I'm not saying I'm losing faith in ever getting funding but I am starting to get a glazed over vacant look in my eyes every time someone tells me, "I will finance you project."

Give me the damn money then.

The crew and I have been on a rollercoaster ride of elation and broken hearts for the last few months and I feel terrible for dragging them through this with me but at the same time I'm a damn lucky guy for finding a crew that has enough faith in the WGU project to stick it out with me. Case in point, two days ago I sent out an email to the crew telling them to get ready to rock because I just had a meeting with two investors that went unbelievably well. We talked for hours and they even showed me the studio space we'd be using and discussed wiring, lighting, internet access, getting keys cut, etc. I told them exactly what I needed and they left me with an overwhelmingly positive feeling about the whole deal. The last thing they talked to me about was seeing more of the WGU fan mail and that they'd call me the next day.

The next day was yesterday. They haven't called.

I suppose no news is good news and despite not hearing from them yet the meeting did go extremely well and I know one of them is an honest guy who wouldn't lead me on or dick me around. It's just that the WGU has consumed my life for the last nine months and I want to move into that studio NOW and get me crew working NOW. Money money money. That's what it all comes down to doesn't it? I'm just a wee bit impatient these days.

The frustrating thing about it is just how simple the whole business situation seems to me. I show investors the number of pre orders we potentially have and examples of my crews ability to produce the product. All we need to do is plug in a few bucks to get it made and we have a guaranteed market for the game. I mean, I've shown them in black and white how many copies we will sell. It's a sure thing and they still don't get it?! It's like someone telling you the winning numbers for tomorrow's million dollar lottery and you still think, "gee but the ticket costs five bucks and all I get is a little ticket stub."


But hey, fear not. Our options are still the best they've ever been. Other potential investors are talking to me and even our amazing Ono has been putting together an evil money making scheme that has him cackling with mad scientist-like laughter. We'll do what we have to do get financing but I just hope in the meantime I get a phone call today with some good news.

2) Instruction Manual
While getting estimates for the printing and packaging of PW-X the printer asked me an important question about the type of instruction manual we could give the gamers. To see what it is and offer your input please visit the message board below and look for the post labeled "PW-W Instruction Manual"

Thanks for helping out with your input. It's an important matter we need to clear up.

In the meantime and in between time, that's it. Another edition of Wrestling Gamers United.
