Award Winning creators of CosyKiller Subscription box launch second Kickstarter Campaign to fund the story for Year 2

The Story Unfolds from year 1

Box 1 in the story includes a burned journal

The second box reveals more in the story.

Red Herring Games launches second Kickstarter Campaign today to fund the development of the second story. Pledges also include the option to travel in time!

GRIMSBY, N.E. LINCS, UK, September 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Award winning Red Herring Games launches their second Kickstarter project to fund the development of the second year of the popular Cosykiller murder mystery subscription box.

Cosykiller launched last year after a successful kickstarter campaign in the autumn and the firm look set to achieve their goal within days of launching their second campaign.

“We’ve had such fantastic feedback from players” Jo Smedley, managing director said. “Cosykiller is incredibly popular and has had some fantastic reviews by some of our committed armchairs sleuths. It’s an immersive puzzle game quite unlike any other.”

The unique subscription engages individual players in a self-driven investigation which requires all their intelligence and perception.

Unlike many role playing games on the market which are utilising modern gadgetry, Red Herring Games have returned to the old fashioned era of deduction, presenting the players with documents and artefacts from a bygone era they try to discover the perpetrators of a cold case.

“Digital is no longer a key driver,” Said managing director Jo Smedley, “We knew we were never going to compete with the likes of VR headsets or X-box style games. But what we’ve found is people don’t actually want that. They want to feel part of something special. They want to be immersed in story in a way that only a physical item held in the hand can provide. Last year the story was India based and we included all sorts of spices in the boxes to give the scent of India as the story unfolded. It hit all the senses. And the players have thoroughly enjoyed it – many backed year 2 within minutes of the project launching on Kickstarter.”

Pledges for this year’s Kickstarter also include the option for people to get involved in the spin off project launched by the firm: Cosycruise! A pledge of £350 will give backers the opportunity to join the Red Herring Games team as they bring the first year of Cosykiller to life.”

“After a year trying to solve the mystery of what happened to Marie Jones in India – this is a great chance to meet her in the flesh.” Jo Smedley said.

You don’t need to have played the first year of Cosykiller to enjoy the cruise as the story is set before Marie disappeared.

“It’s designed as a prequel.” Jo Smedley said. “We didn’t want to exclude non-players, but we also wanted to give Cosykiller players a chance to meet the real Marie. The actress playing Marie also provided all the sketches and paintings which were used within our first story – so they really will get to meet the genuine article!”

Cosykiller is the only fully immersive subscription box aimed at the solo sleuth, but it’s also great fun for families and small groups.

“Families and small groups can work together to puzzle out the boxes.” Jo Smedley said. “We imagine over the course of the year players might end up producing their own version of an incident board to help them puzzle through the mystery.”

The company has launched the project on Kickstarter on the 7th September. With only three weeks to run, Red Herring Games are appealing to those interested in joining in with this or last year’s story to pledge now.

RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, September 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — RENO, Nev. – Silver and gold lots reigned supreme at Holabird Western Americana Collections’ Americana auction, held August 24th-26th in Reno, as a Rothchild & Sons silver ingot from 1935 soared to $23,500, a Chinese gold unicorn coin weighing one troy ounce realized $3,375, and a World War II Confederate Air Force set of 14 silver coins, each one troy ounce, brought $2,125.

The auction, which marked the beginning of Holabird’s summer-fall-winter season, was packed with a number of major collections – over 2,100 lots in all. The event was held online as well as in Holabird’s gallery at 3555 Airway Drive. Internet bidding was provided by iCollector.com, Invaluable.com, eBay Live and Auctionzip.com. Phone and absentee bids were also be accepted.

Day 1, which contained all the abovenamed top lots, featured 14 lots of gaming collectibles, 13 saloon collectibles, 121 lots of rare vintage and antique bottles, 201 lots of tokens and 387 lots of numismatic items, to include bank bags, coins, books, checks, ingots, medals, mint and proof coin sets, popular “so-called” dollars, scales, currency, scrip, commemoratives and ephemera.

The Rothchild & Sons 1935 silver ingot was a discovery piece out of the Chicago area and is possibly the only existing large Rothchild silver ingot. And large it was, measuring 14 inches by 5 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches, .966 fine and weighing a stout 1098.3 troy ounces. The ingot had the Rothchild & Son hallmark in a double circle, the date inside a rectangle, and a serial # (R5170).

The Chinese gold unicorn coin, one of 1,000 minted by the China Mint Company, is legal tender in the People’s Republic of China, with a face value of 100 yuan. Measuring 32 mm in diameter and 99.9 percent pure gold by composition, the coin showed a beautiful standing unicorn above foliage on the obverse and a dragon on the reverse. It was housed in its original velvet-lined box.

The set of 14 Confederate Air Force (or “Ghost Squadron”) coins commemorated a group of legendary aircraft from the U.S., England and Germany during World War II. The obverse designs on the .999 pure silver coins each commemorated a different airplane. The set came in a large clamshell case; the white satin inside cover showed the crest of the Confederate Air Force.

Following are additional highlights from the auction, which posted an overall gross of $256,435. All prices quoted include the buyer’s premium.

A silver colored paperweight weighing 15.87 troy ounces (but possibly silver-plated copper) sold for $625. Some of the highest relief of the plating was worn off, showing a copper-colored metal. Also, a one-peso Filipino coin in the key 1906-S date, graded VF, changed hands for $1,562, and a pale aqua New Almaden Mineral Water bottle (circa 180-1872, San Jose, Calif.), brought $625.

Tokens were hugely popular with collectors. Top achievers included an Abbott & Davis (Fort Davis, Tex.) token good for “1 dollar in M’D’S’E” ($1,562); an early and rare trade token for Moore & Sweet (Fort Quitman, Tex.) from 1871 ($1,062); and two tokens that showed steer heads: for Neff & Guff (Austin, Tex., $375) and one for Fred Schmidt (San Angelo, Tex., $732).

Day 2, on Saturday, August 25th, contained 112 lots of cowboy collectibles, 64 lots of firearms and weaponry, 63 lots of militaria, 19 general foreign lots and more than 450 lots of general Americana, to include advertising items, bonds, books, entertainment industry, Gold Rush, lamps, glassware and flatware, jewelry and watches, sheet music, tools and vintage apparel.

An Elvis Presley limited-edition commemorative 24kt gold-plated silver record disc, weighing three troy ounces and showing Don’t Be Cruel on one side and Hound Dog on the other, issued by The Lincoln Mint and contained in a 6 ½ inch square cherry-finished wood box, made $531.

A carte de visite of plantation owner, slave trader and Texas army colonel James Fannin, of the only known painting of Fannin done when he was at West Point, commanded $688. Col. Fannin fought in three battles against Mexican forces in 1835. He was captured and executed in 1836.

Day 3, on Sunday, August 26th, was brimming with 260 lots of mining collectibles, 19 mineral specimen lots, 46 lots of railroadiana, 15 lots of Wells Fargo & Express, 11 lots of postal history, 15 lots of political memorabilia, 10 lots of World’s Fair and Expositions, 12 lots of artwork, 67 lots of Native Americana and 127 lots of what Holabird called “bargains and dealer specials.”

A vintage mini squash blossom necklace with all hand-stamped and formed squash blossoms set with turquoise stones, crafted circa the 1940s, breezed to $8,125. The naja of the 24-inch-long necklace was set with green turquoise stones and the lot came with a silver and turquoise fork.

A circa 1885 oak-framed chromo-litho poster for the California Powder Works – the first U.S. explosive powder manufacturing company west of the Rocky Mountains – finished at $6,000. The poster, which probably hung in a saloon or mining office, boasted lovely soft pastel colors.

Numerous important collections will be offered over the course of several seasons and multiple auctions at Holabird. These will include the Medallic Arts/Northwest Territorial Mint Reference Ingot Collection, the James Mackie Art & Western Americana Collection, the R.B. Worthington Texas Token Collection, the Ken Prag American Stock Certificate Collection and several others.

“The Prag collection of American stock certificates will inarguably be the highlight of the fall and winter sales,” said Fred Holabird of Holabird Western Americana Collections, adding, “One of every stock he ever handled is in the collection, untouched and unpicked. As usual, we’re also offering a wide variety of his duplicate material in the dealer/bargain section of the catalogs.”

Imagol Set to Achieve Breakthrough in the Photo Marketplace

Imagol is Revolutionizing the Photography World With the Next-gen Blockchain-based P2P Image Marketplace.

With Imagol, the supply & demand of stock images will be governed by a shared economy which will eventually lead to a decentralized, truly secured and open market.”

— Jack Derong, a co-founder of Imagol

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, September 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imagol is a blockchain-based decentralized P2P image marketplace which will enable photographers to get rid of photo piracy, copyright violation and most importantly enable them to enjoy a larger share of profits on the sale of their creations. The platform will facilitate easy monetization of photos and make the most of everyone’s creation by featuring them as micro-stock collections.

Photographers struggling with low payment from big photo stock companies and photo piracy issues can finally heave a sigh of relief. A new blockchain platform, Imagol, is all set to revolutionize the current stock photography world with its futuristic decentralized P2P image marketplace that will make the best use of resources and prevent the wastage of 2.5 trillion photos which are predicted (Deloitte TMT prediction) to become “wasted resource” in near future.

The platform will enable photographers to be in complete control of the pricing and rights to their creations. With Imagol, everyone and anyone will be able to snap & sell as well as search and buy photos and photos will become conveniently more affordable.

Powered by blockchain-enabled P2P stock library network, the Imagol suite will enable two willing parties, buyer, and photographer, to transact directly with one another without the interference of a 3rd party agency. The platform caters to emerging, aspiring and established photographers worldwide and anybody confident about his/her photography skills can showcase his/her work on Imagol and monetize it with the fairest remuneration.

Jack Derong, a co-founder of Imagol, had this to say about the application:

“We are excited to introduce our next-generation Imagol application suite to the world. It’s a revolutionary blockchain-based photo selling, social networking DApps ad marketplace which aims to redefine the way conventional stock photo library works and for the better. Our platform is designed to build a sustainable ecosystem for both photographers and users which will extend a win-win solution for both”

According to Mr. Derong, Imagol is launched to resolve the main problems plaguing the current photography industry. The present stock photography scene is under the claws of big companies that demand a high premium from buyers but return just a fraction of the selling price to photographers.

Mr. Derong continues;

“The big stock photo companies today gobble up a whopping 85% of the sales amount while photographers are left with a meager 15%. As a result, many photographers are discouraged to pursue their art which eventually brings their entire career to a big question mark.”

The Imagol team is driven by the mission to disrupt the current world of photography with its decentralized environment which will assure that it’s the photographers who will get the 85% of the sales amount.

“With Imagol, the supply & demand of stock images will be governed by a shared economy which will eventually lead to a decentralized, truly secured and open market.”

Another major problem that Imagol will solve is the rising issue of photo piracy.

“Photo piracy is a burning issue today and even some of the copyrighted photos have been the victims of deliberate or accidental theft. The sad part is photographers can’t always afford to pay for expensive litigations to protect their work. And this is where Imagol comes to the rescue.”

Powered by blockchain & smart contract technology, Imagol will allow contributors to exercise full control of their creations to eliminate photo piracy and copyright violation issues.

Derong finishes:

“Thanks to smart contract technology, Imagol can assure better IP protection for contributors which will further attract more contributors to our portal. Through digital provenance facilitated by our platform, photographers can ensure no copyright abuse of the digital images sold, and buyers will also have the opportunity to track the originality of a digital image to ensure an authentic purchase.”

Unlike its potential competitors, Imagol knows with many barriers removed, everyone can be a good photographer now not only professional photographers. Besides, Imagol has gone a step further by introducing a social network in the community. The “social” quotient will invariably help the Imagol community to grow faster as well as acquire and maintain more active users.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since 1984, the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp has helped over a thousand children in need build self-confidence by developing their humor and creativity through the healing power of laughter. Every year, Jamie Masada, Laugh Factory’s owner, and an acclaimed list of comics, reach out to underprivileged children in the community.

“The camp provides a safe haven for at risk or underprivileged children and inspires them to transform negative energy into something positive,” Masada expresses. “The program teaches children each summer to take frustrations, anger, and hurt to the stage and use stand-up comedy as a way to inspire confidence and hope, proving that laughter truly is the best medicine.”

During the 8-week program, the campers will be coached by professional comedians. In previous years, instructors have included comics Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Bob Saget, Paul Rodriguez, Dave Chappelle, Jon Lovitz, Damon Wayans, Adam Sandler, George Lopez, Chris Tucker, and Tiffany Haddish, to name a few. The program is free of charge for those chosen, and a graduation ceremony is held at the end of the 8-week camp where each child (ages 9-16) performs a six-minute comedy set on stage in front of friends and family.

“I want to express my thanks and appreciation to all of you. Your love and encouragement has helped fuel my passion and continue to make Laugh Factory Camp a warm and welcoming place for underprivileged children each and every summer,” Masada continues. “Thanks to your enthusiasm and love for the Laugh Factory, we have been able to show these kids what is possible and how they can overcome their current circumstances.”

Several comedy camp kids have found success in their futures as a comedian, such as Nick Cannon, Amanda Bynes, and Tiffany Haddish. The Laugh Factory Comedy Camp was also featured in a PBS documentary, "Standup: A Summer at Comedy Camp," which was aired nationwide.

"Laughter heals and gives these kids the self-esteem to overcome obstacles that many of us don't have to face, and to accomplish whatever they set their hearts and minds to," Masada concludes. “Helping these kids heal from their pain and realize the future is bright is the greatest gift we can all give them.”

Maurice Gray Eldridge of Chester Charter School of the Arts to be Featured of CUTV News Radio

SWARTHMORE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, September 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Not every student who attends an arts school is expected to become an artist, but every student can benefit from serious engagement with the arts.

Maurice Gray Eldridge is the Vice Chair for the Chester Fund for Education and the Arts and former principal of the prestigious Duke Ellington School for the Arts. Over a career spanning five decades, Eldridge has empowered students through a strong focus on the arts at the center of a liberal arts education.

“I happen to believe all kids, whatever they want to be when they grow up, will benefit from having the arts in their lives,” says Eldridge. “The arts are integrated into the curriculum of the school, which helps students learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, so they can begin to feel a part of a family, a community. We’re building a community inside a school.”

Eldridge grew up in Washington DC in an era when the city like the rest of the country was segregated. When the Supreme Court issued its desegregation order for the nation in 1954, Eldridge was heading into the tenth grade.

“Until tenth grade I had attended only segregated schools in which most of the teachers were very dedicated educated black women whose path in the world was very much limited by both gender and race,” recalls Eldridge. “We had excellent teachers who instilled in me the importance and deep value of our education, particularly if we were going to succeed with our lives in a segregated society. It became a very powerful piece of who I am with respect to learning.”

Eldridge in that same year was recruited into a progressive, integrated, and coed boarding school in New England, where he emgerged as a leader through his genuine commitment to the role the arts, theater, poetry, and literature can play in education. In 1979, Eldridge was named principal of the Duke Ellington School for the Arts, where he served for 10 years.

“People like Dave Chappelle and Denise Graves who attended Duke Ellington when I was principal are still out there doing it,” says Eldridge. “What’s remarkable to me after all of these years since the Ellington School started, is how much its graduates still feel themselves to be part of a family, whether they’re in the arts in their career or not.”

In 2005, Eldridge was instrumental in establishing the Chester Charter School for the Arts in Chester, Pennsylvania, a K-12 arts school.

“It’s about presenting to kids an environment that affirms them, that says ‘you matter, and what you’re interested in matters, and that’s why we’re giving you the best setting we can to accomplish that,’” says Eldridge.

CUTV News Radio will feature Maurice Gray Eldridge in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on September 6th at 1pm EDT.
