Sconnie Launches New Favre Shirts Ahead of Packers/Vikings Tilt

Wisconsin apparel company and Capital Entrepreneurs Member Sconnie.com is releasing new Brett Favre shirts leading up to the Packers vs. Vikings game on Nov. 1.  From their release:

Following the popularity of the “We’ll Never Forget You Brent” original Sconnie® design, Sconnie Nation has released a slew of new designs for Packer fans. The “Brent” shirts continue to fly off the shelves, with a flurry of increased demand as the Monday Night Football game approaches. In anticipation of the game, Sconnie Nation has released a limited edition green on gold version of the original “Brent” design, printed on ultra-comfortable American Apparel t-shirts.

Sconnie ran a contest for fans to submit their own ideas for a shirt. From the slew of hilarious and original ideas proposed by fans came three new designs – “Break Him”, “Brett’s Waffle House” and “Minnesota Dumpster Divers” which have also become wildly popular through online sales at www.sconnie.com. Also added to the lineup of shirt designs are Worst State Ever shirts, with the MN edition taking center stage this week.

Proactive Sleep Featured On Gizmodo’s Top 10 Apps of the Week

Capital Entrepreneur member Proactive Sleep was featured as #3 on Gizmodo’s list of top 10 apps of the week.  Here’s what they said:

Proactive Sleep: Is there a such thing as a sleep coach? Let’s assume there is! In a nutshell, that’s what this app, designed with SCIENCE, aims to be. It’s an alarm clock at its core, which wakes you up with music of your choice then challenges you to a game, or offers you a dream diary. It’ll also track your sleep patterns and warn you when you’ve dipped below average. A little steep at five dollars, but it’s fairly polished and written by a bon-a-fide sleep researcher.

Parallel Kingdom Launches Using Innovative Strategy

Capital Entrepreneur member Per Blue is about to launch its new Age of Emergence version of Parallel Kingdom.  Below is info from their press release regarding the launch:

Beginning Halloween, October 31st, Parallel Kingdom will be having an in-game event called the Scroll Hunt that will involve players gathering randomly placed scrolls and then uniting within the game. When four players that have each found a scroll all meet at one location, they will be able to combine their individual scrolls, creating a blueprint for a one-of-a-kind building called the Great Library.

The first four players that unite and successfully build the Great Library will be documented as the founders of the new version of the game, titled “Parallel Kingdom – The Age of Emergence.” The entire scroll hunt is expected to take about two weeks, but it has the possibility to last indefinitely. The new version of Parallel Kingdom will not become available until four players get together and build the Great Library. After the Great Library begins construction, the game servers will go down to update the game. When they come back up, the new version of the game will be available in Google Market and the iTunes App Store. In the new version, the construction of the Great Library will be complete and it will exist forever in the same location where the four players decided to build it.

Justin Beck of PerBlue, Inc., the company that developed Parallel Kingdom, says “We’re really excited about the Scroll Hunt because to the best of our knowledge, no other video game has ever done anything like this.” This contest will let the players compete with each other to find the scrolls first, and then they will have to cooperate to get four people with scrolls together in the game to build the Great Library. Beck says, “Its like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with 4 golden tickets except instead of a tour, you get to usher in a whole new game title”. The four winners’ names will be permanently inscribed on the Great Library. “For the developers and players the whole event should be tons of fun.”
