Originally posted on Indie Conquest:Today I wanted to discuss the timing of launching a Kickstarter. This happens to be one of the most asked questions by creators getting ready to launch their first campaign.

We’d love to have seen something cool like this when we were at school!
Kids at St Kieran’s National School in Offaly were treated to an amazing virtual reality experience when they were given the opportunity to walk in the world they created.
Designed by MissionV, a virtual reality platform for teaching and training, students in 11 schools across the country get to check out new realities using a simulator that’s access controlled by their teacher.
According to Technology.ie, who shared this video, normally the students simply use the keyboard and mouse to explore the new worlds, but as a treat MissionV founder James Corbett brought in something very special: the Oculus Rift VR headset.
To add to their experience, the students in the national school learned scripting and 3D modelling and recreated historic Irish site, Clonmacnoise. Have a look at the fun they had.

Briefly some of the areas we have covered over the last couple of weeks are
The above is just some of the areas we have been working on to try and ensure a successful campaign but the most important one and the one I am most NERVOUS about is the entail 20% of our target amount. This is where you rely on friends and family to give you the push, the vote of confidence and then the crowd will follow and I have made lots of phone calls to try and ensure this 20% but who knows it’s hard to guarantee this. The main reason I think people are just people at the end of the day and they forget have more important things to deal with and that’s just life but here to hoping and I hope some of the pointers above help you in your campaign.
Feel free to ask for pointers.
