In April of this year, Frozenbyte’s teamed up with the humblebundle.com guys and worked their butts off preparing the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle campaign. It was not easy for many reasons. First of all, there is a 10 hour time difference between Helsinki and California.
From what I heard, it was a bit challenging to arrange telephone (read: Skype) conferences… They also had to solve many technical difficulties and be prepared for customer service.
But the campaign was a success and the Frozenbyte team had great conversations with their customers and fans via the online chat application. Here are some of the most memorable comments and questions and some answers for them as well.
1. “What name you would give to our computer game company?”
Belgian kids asked our sales and marketing manager Mikael.
“J.D.T.F.B (Just Doing This For Beer)”, he suggested.
[The company actually exists nowadays.
You can find it here: http://jdtfb.webs.com/aboutus.htm .
Note Mikael's name on The People list!]
2. “Who’s your favourite pornstar?”
3. “What do you do at Frozenbyte?”
4. “What does a producer do?”
[Writer's note: We will tell you more about this later.]
5. “Would you go on a date with me?”
6. “How can I get a job at Frozenbyte?”
7. “Can I sleep on your couch this summer?”
“Unfortunately, I am not a member of the couchsurfers’ clan…”
8. “Why don’t you serve me faster?!”
9. “I just paid $0.01 for your games.”
10. “Humble Bundle is really cool, thanks!”
11. “How can I become a game developer?”
12. “How can I play these games?”
13. “Will you be my girlfriend?”
“I’m a man…”
14. “Do you have a vibrator?”
15. “Zomg halp mah computah is frozen!!”
16. “Zomg halp this bundle is too cool for mah computer!”
17. “Can I have a free code?”
“You can pay like $0.01… it’s not much, is it?”
18. “I love you! <3”
“We love you too! <3”
Scriptwriter Maija also served a Spanish customer and a Russian customer with help from Google Translate. She was pretty sure that they both got what they wanted. Possibly.
Frozenbyte wants to thank everyone who bought or were otherwise involved with the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle! Thank you guys, you are amazing!
