A little bit off topic, but maybe this will help spur the creative juices...
My seven-year-old son spends way too much time on youtube.
One of his favorite channels are "game play" channels. they basically have a couple of yobs who play online video games and the video is just them doing a voice over while they are playing. It's pretty stupid, really.
anyway, I noticed that many of those videos have hundreds of thousands of hits.
One person who is pretty well known at doing this decided that they wanted to have their own online game developed, so he solicited donations with a goal of $250K to create the new game.
Well, last I heard they had already collected about $280K in donations.
anyway, all I can say is that if you are pretty sure what your value proposition is, anything that can reinforce that is going to be a big help, even if your value proposition is something like, "watch us play video games so you don't have to..."
