Chasing the Dream

This entry was posted on Jan 07 2011

The good people at Intuit are having a competition for a $25,000 – $50,000 hiring grant. Being a new company, this would be a real boon for us and would allow us to come out with products a lot sooner.

The process to help us win is really simple, follow this link, enter in an email address, and say something nice. Every person who does this counts as a raffle ticket for the drawing.

Speaking of nice things, I looked at the page today, and a few of the comments really touched me. For example, LopeyK01 said, “These guys are revolutionizing the way games are made.”, and dracopervicax added, “Cliche is a company that is truly dedicated to enhancing the game industry, by doing something meaningful with games and expanding them beyond an entertainment medium.”

If people are already saying things like this, even if they are likely friends, since we are a very new company, it gives me great hope at our chances to succeed in this industry. Plus, it is truly motivating, for I do not want to let these people down. I know Ant and I have a good thing going here, but to hear it from others really means something to me. So, even if we do not get the grant, I’m okay with that, because this competition has already enough to keep on trying to make this thing happen.

So, to everyone, thank you.
