For those of you who have been following the Kickstarter project Iliad House, you probably know that after a month of trying to reach their lofty $100,000 goal, they were eventually unsuccessful, reaching only around a quarter of their goal.
However, all is not lost, as a new Iliad House Kickstarter page is up, with a much smaller goal of only $15,000. This goal has already been achieved, with now $17,100 as of the writing of this post! Their plan is to just make the pilot series for now, and see where they can go from there after the pilot is released. If you haven't heard of Iliad House, the description reads:
"Fourteen-year-old orphan Jesse Davidson lives with his emotionally-distant and peculiar uncle Christopher Portalis in the Iliad House, a mysterious old mansion on an island off the east coast of the United States.
Just when Jesse is finally getting used to living on the island, he discovers that the old abandoned train he and his friends have been using as a clubhouse for the past year can actually move—through time!
They get caught up in a series of adventures fraught with temporal distortions, political intrigue, secret societies, and supernatural battles, all as they try to cope with the daily pressures and craziness of adolescence.
While traveling through the future and the past, they learn hard truths and secrets about themselves, and that there is forgiveness and redemption available to all who desire it. And, as Jesse and his uncle come to understand each other, Jesse begins to see that there is much more to Iliad House, and to why he and his uncle are there, than anyone realizes."
If this sounds like something you want to get on board with, be sure to help them out on their Kickstarter page! And as always, stay tuned as we keep you updated on this exciting new series!
