    Less than three days in to CLANG's Kickstarter campaign and it's currently crowdfunded to the tune of $190,664, which is 38% of the target.

    The videos have gone viral in a big way, being featured on io9, Gawker, BBC News, Wired, etc., etc. I think this must be the biggest pop-culture exposure the recreation of historical fencing has ever seen, let alone the potential follow-on benefits to the activity when the game is actually produced ...

    Five days in and they've reached the half-way mark, but that's only half-way through the woods ...

    Possible derail, but since you mentioned io9, they seem to have decided swordplay brings the clicks into the site. This is the latest post on WMA/HEMA

    The comments are funny too.
