A few weeks ago, we mentioned a new project by Adventures in Odyssey co-creator Phil Lollar called Iliad House, an audio drama that takes place on the fictitious Verity Island. Phil Lollar and his team were attempting to get this new project crowdfunded through Kickstarter, and were accepting support throughout the month of August. However, it became clear at the end, that they were going to fall very short of their goal, only raising around 25% of the needed $100,000.
Never fear, as the Iliad House team issued a statement a couple of days ago saying that they're not giving up yet:
"Unfortunately, we must face the hard truth that we will most probably not meet our goal of $100,000 by August 31 (barring a miracle, and, of course, nothing is impossible with God!). That goal was admittedly ambitious, as were our plans for the funds, which included not only providing you with almost 20 episodes of the series, but also building an infrastructure so that we could manufacture and deliver multiple and on-going episodes of Iliad House...
...To that end, we are taking what we have learned from our current Kickstarter campaign and using it to revise our goals and plans, and re-tool our campaign to reflect those lessons. As you know, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing proposition, which means that if we do not meet our goal, we collect nothing, and you keep the funds you pledged.
So, when our current campaign ends, we will almost immediately start up a new one, with the new fundraising goal of only $15,000."
You can read their full statement on the subject on their Kickstarter page here. This looks like such an exciting project and I really hope that they have more success in their next Kickstarter project, as I cannot wait to listen to this audio drama some day. If you feel the same way, check back tomorrow as we'll post an update linking to the new Iliad House Kickstarter page. This will definitely be an amazing audio drama, and keep checking back as we follow the progress of the Iliad House project.
