More big steps forwards for our project for your girls!
5 MONTHS AGO
A very happy 2018 to you all!
So much has happened since we were in touch with you last, so we thought we’d send you an update because we’ve made really exciting progress.
We’re very happy to tell you we are currently in the very final stages of completing our first video game, ‘Zingoshi’ and also, our first book, ‘Dragonfly’, and preparing these for launch! (Zingoshi was previously called ‘Ambiguous’, and this is the game we did our crowdfunding campaign for here on Boosted). Thank you again for your amazing support. We’ve never forgotten it.
Both the game and the book contain augmented reality elements. We are rapt to be coming to market with one of very few, (if any!), quality games for girls with augmented reality in existence.
Our new website is www.zingoshi.com and you can see an early teaser for our game here: http://bit.ly/2qhd3ne.
‘Dragonfly’ is now in print and the app for the augmented reality elements will be approved in the coming weeks. After that, we will be able to sell it. So that’s fantastic.
All of this was made possible by investment from a small group of fabulou, like-minded NZ businesspeople, and, grants from a government body, Callaghan Innovation, awarded for R&D on especially innovative projects. After 7 years of battling on to get this project going, words can’t even express what a thrill this is for us!
Ronel and I will be attending Kidscreen next month where we are predominantly focusing on obtaining meetings with delegates from transmedia-oriented companies, (Kidscreen is still mainly TV-oriented) but also getting some meetings with specialist game publishers and book publishers.
And then other than that of course, our ongoing focus is to secure investment for the next stage of development.
So, that’s our news and we hope you’ve enjoyed seeing where we’ve got to. If you’d like to receive newsletters from us, please sign up on our website. Also, if you or any kids you know would like to be part of a special group of early testers for the game, let us know on email@example.com or by signing up for the newsletter. You can also follow us on Facebook at https://web.facebook.com/zingoshidevelopment and for our other social media, see the website for icons.
Thanks so much for your time and warmest regards,
Bridget and Ronel
