Cipher Prime's Creative Fundrasing

July 16, 2010 -

You'll never see EA or Activision doing this! Philadelphia-based indie game developer Cipher Prime is having a fundraiser to finance its move from an awful 160 sq ft space to 1000 sq ft space - and to hire an additional employee.

The "fundraiser," which began yesterday, is offering two of the company's games for $4.99 each. Both are music-based puzzle games for PC and Mac: Auditorium and Fractal. Here's the pitch from the website:

As some of you know, we’ve been trying to move for a long time. Our old office had no AC, no heat, lots of bugs, and was generally just too small. Goodbye 160 sq ft; Hello 1000sq ft!!

Not only is this upgrade amazing, the rent is just about the same. However, moving always costs a lot of money and we really want to hire on another employee. So, the answer is clear… WE MUST FUNDRAISER!

In the old days, we took donations for Auditorium and were able to stay true with our promises and make it into a fully developed title. Now, it’s on the web, iPhone, iPad, and coming soon to the PS3, XBox360, and PSP! This time, we’ll be offering both Auditorium and Fractal for 50% off, lowering both titles to $4.99 for two weeks. This special moving sale promo will end on July 30th, so act fast! You will also receive a free audio track with either purchase during the sale. With Auditorium comes Autumn, our first single. Fractal comes with Iterate!, Fractal’s theme song.

The website offers other ways you can help out if you feel the need including spreading the word to your friends and family, telling your favorite website or forum, actually buying the games, subscribing to their mailing list or sending them an email to give feedback on the games.

 My only comment here is that Auditorium is freakin' awesome.  Well worth $5.

Re: Cipher Prime's Creative Fundrasing

How is 160 sq ft big enough to even be an office?  Did they really even have one?  I think it is supposed to be a joke.   160 sq ft is a small room.

 See, this is the problem with the philly game industry... companies do not seem to actually know of each other.     I have spent time trying to track down various companies in this region and have never heard of this one....

Sora-ChanSo, judging from the poll post for #gamergate, it looks like too many thread replies breaks the ordering of posts, as seen with the recent post from Infophile.09/30/2014 - 5:31pm
Andrew EisenOr no! It wasn't Y3K compliant. Microsoft thought it best to super future proof its OS and skipped straight to 10 which is Y3K compliant!09/30/2014 - 5:01pm
Andrew EisenJust tell them it wasn't Y2K compliant.09/30/2014 - 5:00pm
Craig R.Looking forward to having to explain to coworkers down the road what ever happened to 9 *sigh*09/30/2014 - 4:57pm
Craig R.2k was crap. XP was solid, 7 is good, 8.1 is actually really good once you make it look like 7 :)09/30/2014 - 4:52pm
Sora-Chan@MP As someone who has used each version of windows since 3.1... I prefer Vista over 7 for various reasons. The only thing I give 7 over Vista is preformance. They really screwed up a bunch of things when making 7. Also, XP was a pain. 2k was better.09/30/2014 - 4:13pm

IanCWin 8 isn't bad, it just can't decide whether to be a desktop OS or a tablet OS.09/30/2014 - 2:40pm
IanCI think its a way of getting round giving it free to Win 8 users...09/30/2014 - 2:39pm
MaskedPixelanteWindows alternates between bad and good versions. XP was good, Vista sucked, 7 was good, 8 sucked, therefore 10 will suck, QED.09/30/2014 - 2:18pm
E. Zachary KnightPerhaps they are calling it "10" because on a scale of 1-10 of how awesome it is, it is a clear 10.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
E. Zachary KnightTo be fair. Microsoft has had a bit of a numbering issue lately. What with going from XBox 360 to XBox One.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
NeenekoI remember the pac man show from the 80s, but I was more picturing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWL6j0SvqV0 which is probably more source accurate then Tetris will be...09/30/2014 - 1:42pm
Andrew EisenThat is so dumb. That would be like Sony saying, "Hey guys! The next Playstation is going to be so awesome, so far beyond what the PS4 can do that we're going to call it the Playstation 6!"09/30/2014 - 1:42pm

E. Zachary KnightThere is actually a Pacman tv show and it isn't bad. My kids like it.09/30/2014 - 12:53pm
NeenekoTetris.. the movie? It is sad when a joke becomes real. Next up pacman and minesweeper!09/30/2014 - 12:42pm
