Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to visit my blog. If you know me then you know my background and I why I chose this specific domain name. If you don’t know me and you stumbled in here by accident then allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kobe (hence the domain name I recently bought) and spend most of my spare time playing a little know game called “Oracle”.
This site is going to be a place where others who enjoy the game can send in information to share for the good of the community. We hope to slowly build up a sort of library of information, challenges, achievements and codes to help others get started with the game and make connections with other players.
Future plans hope to include a forum as well a linked Facebook group (which will be private) so further sharing will be possible with a wealth of information coming via trusted members. Initially, we hope to invite around 50 players to join in with the community until we have enough content to open it up for the public. On top of all that we are going to open a Youtube channel to allow players to submit videos of campaign success as well as level ups and advanced tactics.
If you are interested in becoming involved in some way then please use our form to send through your details and someone will respond – usually within a couple of days (we all have jobs as well!).
Please feel free to check back here every now and then to see how things develop.
I have been working really hard over the past week trying to get everything ready to go live. Again, I want to thank everyone who has given up their time to offer their services and help to ensure we are able to build a great community with plenty of resources that will benefit anyway who enjoys playing Oracle. I ended up buying myself a new computer desk from these guys to enlarge my workspace so that I can effectively deal with all the different projects I have to worry about!
You should have received an email from me if you have offered to help out with the website with a list of tasks that I would appreciate you spending your time on. If you did not receive any mail at all then please let me know – you can use the contact form as that is the most likely address that I will check. It may take me a couple of days to respond due to the large amount of mail I am receiving these days.
I am still looking for someone who can help us out video editing. I have a bunch of players lined up to record their sessions but I need someone who can edit the game play and add some music over the top. We have a graphics guy working on the intro and the ending so it should be a fairly simple job of watching and editing. Let me know if you have the ability to do this, thanks.
For those that attended the golf day, thanks for your time. I think everyone there had a good time, even the “not-so-good” golfers! It was more about spending time with like-minded people and giving us an opportunity to discuss strategy and other interesting discussions around Oracle. I hope to try and arrange another day in the next few months, it would be good if it could become a regular thing as I think we all took something away. I also want to thank those that took time out of their busy schedules to put the day together, arrange a few prizes and setup at the course ahead of everyone arriving.
Finally, we are thinking about hosting an online tournament – this would be open for everyone to enjoy but we need to try and come up with some ideas for prizes. If anyone has any sponsorship ideas then please let me know ASAP so that we can start working on things.
I just wanted to add a quick post to thank all of you that have contacted me in order to help get the site of the ground. It is quite amazing how many people are happy to take time out of their busy schedules in order to give something back to help others with strategy, videos and all sorts of things based on their favorite game.
I am busy arranging the tasks as you would have seen on my general email reply so expect to receive more specific information very soon. There really is no pressure at all so feel free to send in your efforts whenever you can find the time. I would like to get everything up and running by October at the latest so I should think that a couple of months would be more than enough time. If you have web experience and would like to be involved in the management of this site then please contact me – I will be on the lookout for a couple of people to actively have access to the site and the ability to add content etc.
I am in need of anyone who is good with video content and editing. Although a couple of you said you can help out with the video side of things it would be really great if anyone who is slightly professional in this field could drop me a mail. Our plan is to create some high quality videos and the really needs an extra special touch from someone who knows what they are doing!
We have also arranged a golf day (you know who you are if you live close by and will be taking part) so if I have forgotten you then please send your details through. I have been really busy on my Optishot golf simulator, read all about it in this post on this particular model, so I hoping to give you all a run for your money. Juggling work, family, golf and a serious love for online gaming is not easy but I feel it really important to take some time out on the golf course and in the fresh air!
If need any help with your specific task then please email me anytime and I will do my best to get back to you fairly quickly. One of my good friends, Ian, will also be involved and I will post his contact details soon so he can help take some of the load for the site away from me.
