My friends, two pieces of important news.
1. The controversial kickstarter video game which only required $50,000 for 4 platforms and apparently lied about being ex-stalker dev's, have been funded, magically, with 3 days to go after being stalled at $30.000.
In fact, the extraordinary sum of nearly $12,000 raised on Saturday, 19th July, coincides with only two new backers to the project, according to Kicktraq.
2. Leader of the free world (and personal hero) Vladimir Putin apparently sent a letter to the developer with his daughter showing interest in the project
The letter told of how Putin's daughter had apparently backed the Areal campaign and how Vladimir Putin was now interested in it.
"It's important that our people do not shoot at each other, but instead, play games like this," an English translation of his letter - supplied by West games - read.
"If you give me the chance to play the alpha version of the game, when it is ready, then I invite you in advance to the Kremlin, to meet personally, be ready to play a little bit and talk about the interests of young people, the gamers of our country."
Was it this letter, which borders on the absurd, that caused a spike in funding over the weekend? What's suspicious is that although there was a spike in funding, there wasn't a spike in new backers to the project - two statistics that usually go hand in hand.
