Sometimes it's better for your Kickstarter to fail

Sup Holmes teaches crowd funding with Holy Wow Studios

On a recent episode of Sup Holmes, we met Dan and Jackie of Holy Wow Studios, creators of the modern American classic Icarus Proudbottom Teachers Typing. Did you know the original Icarus Proudbottom game was about air travel via poop blast? Giving context to Icarus's name somehow makes it less and more funny at the same time. It's amazing how something can exist in two opposite positions simultaneously. 

Icarus Proudbottom recently made his way to Kickstarter, with a new game that simulates the experience of being Captain Kirk of the Starship Enterprise. Not the new, soft lipped, normal talking modern Kirk. We're talking softbelly, stilted speech pattern, '60s Kirk. Sounds good to me! Sadly, the game didn't make it's funding. At least, I was sad about it. Dan and Jackie seemed both disappointed and relieved. More proof that it's not impossible to be in two opposite mental states at once. 

We talked about a whole bunch of other stuff, like what it's like to work on a game with your significant other, the special multiplayer version of Icarus Proudbottom Teacher Typing, and a lot more. Check out the full episode here, and check back to the YouTube page this Sunday at 4pm when we welcome Chris Chung of Catlateral Damage to the program!
