Help Us bring Mondrian - Plastic Reality to PlayNYC!



Hi all! I know it's been a little while, but today we're bringing you a very important announcement:

We've Been Invited to PlayNYC

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NDxq_wI2Po
Our friends at Playcrafting have invited us to bring the Mondrian sequel, Plastic Reality, to their PlayNYC event in August (11th and 12th). This event is looking to bring together gamers, developers, and streamers from all across the tri-state area and beyond. It's a great opportunity for us to show off the new game and the Mondrian Maker level editor to a huge audience. However, between booking the space, travel, and marketing opportunities, it's not going to be cheap to attend.

So, we have updated our Support Us page with a new campaign. If we can raise about $1500, we'll be able to bring Mondrian - Plastic Reality to the show! And, if we raise more than that, we have stretch goals to make an even bigger splash.



We exhibited Plastic Reality at PAX East in April, and it went extremely well! But, with so much more built into the game in jut the last two months - like new block types, analogous color schemes, and many new levels - we're itching to bring it in front of a big crowd again. PlayNYC is our chance to do just that, and with your help, we can be there!

How You Can Help

There are several ways you can help out. First and foremost, visit our Support Us page where you can learn more about the campaign, pick up a copy of Mondrian - Plastic Reality (or a t-shirt/coffee mug/what-have-you). If you can't donate or buy anything right now, we understand, but would greatly appreciate it if you helped spread the word on social media!

Finally, there's one last fun thing you can do: meme. We've made some blank memes with Mondrian's cast of characters that you can use to help spread the word! Feel free to download these and use the meme machine of your choice. Then use the hashtag #makeamondrian with them, or post them up here, and we'll share our favorites!







(more of these will be on the way soon, with different character poses and background art)

Don't Forget the New Game!

We're on the verge of updating Mondrian - Plastic Reality to EX4.0, and we think you're really going to like it! Yes, it will be here on Steam at some point, but for now you can visit http://lantanagames.com/mondrian-plastic-reality/ to learn more about what we're up to with it and where you can get it to start building your own levels (and mods) for the game right now. Yes, it's moddable! We're doing everything we can to bring the game as close to being a "My First Modkit" as possible, so if you've ever wanted to get into level design or modding, this is the game for you.



Thank you all for your support, as always. Hope to see you in New York!
