Funded it, but to be honest they need millions for that to happen. Hand drawn animation is more expensive then it has ever been.
I hope they have someone funding it based on if the Kickstarter is a success.
Dragon’s Lair: The Movie by Don Bluth Kickstarter
In early for 25$. Spent at least that much playing it.
Don Bluth is still alive? Jesus
Space Ace on SNES is one of the worst games I've ever played. Fuck that game.
I agree about the $. I'll happily throw away 25 bucks to the guy though. I honestly probably dumped 50-100 playing his games.
WTF is up with the prices? The minimum tier to get a copy of the movie is $125 ...
As much as I want to see this happen, I'm not sure I see it succeeding without miracle donors or some wide spread PR driving it.
Guy say's it himself, it's been forever and no one is expecting anything like this.
That's got to be the worst Kickstarter video I've ever seen.
Well they need 500k just for the 10 minute pitch video which is what the Kickstater is for. That is to just sell it to a buyer who has to put up a minimum of 70 million.
70 Million isn't that much for an animated movie. (Princess and the Frog Budget was 102 million) Coincidentally, Titan A.E (Bluths last major project) budget was 72 million. (and that was 15 years ago!)
They possibly may make thier Kickstarter goal, but the next step is much harder to achieve given 2D animated films are pretty tough to sell to buyers.
Hey hey, for $75 you get to check out their pitch video!
55K in less than 24 hours, 22K in 3 days.
Still too early to call dead in the water?
I'd enjoy a Dirk the Daring film but I'm sure as fuck not going to pay 125 bucks for a Blu-Ray.
talk about a video game that was way, way, way ahead of its time. I still remember playing that game on the boardwalk in Ocean City, New Jersey and they actually had two extra monitors set up above the main monitor so onlookers could watch people play the game. As much as I'd like to see a Dragon's Lair movie, doesn't look like it's going to happen; at least not through a kickstarter.
Back in the day that game was miles ahead of anything else. It was like some magical thing that had been sent back in time, sitting there in a line of 8 bit graphics cabinets was this animated movie machine you got to use.
I was never too good at it, but knew guys who could get through the whole thing.

This isn't the first time that Don Bluth has tried to make a Dragon's Lair movie. Here's some concept art that was originally pitched back in 1984 as kind of a prequel to the events of the first game: http://www.dragons-lair-project.com/...related/movie/
It's also been re-pitched again and again past that first attempt with the ideas/plot getting progressively more terrible. (ex. Dirk and Daphne's son trying to follow in Dirk's footsteps to be a hero.) The Don Bluth that could make movies like An American Tail and The Secret of Nimh has checked out a while ago. If this ends up being another Rock-A-Doodle or Troll in Central Park, just leave it be.
If it stays on pace at 22k every 3 days it's not going to make it so it won't matter.
I would see guys with crumped up Xerox sheets with the entire order of the game still fucking up the timing then losing their place on the list.
Double Dragon was definitely the game I dumped the most coins into other than Pinball. Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and that damned robot football game were awesome too.
The whole Kickstarter seemed to disincintivize people from supporting. $175 for a bluray? $50 or something for a postcard? These are people that don't understand the internet and needed to hire a marketer off Craigslist for a box of fruit loops.

Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
Is it sad that I think I remember the dragon fights pattern? Left left left back back right right sword left sword. I used to beat it in 1 quarter back in the day at the putt putt arcade after feeding it too many quarters to count. I felt like a king, yet I never got laid for my "skill".
