Solving project questions and playable teaser announcement
First, thanks to all of you that have made The Last Door reach more than 37% of its goal in its first week. The team has been like crazy preparing new updates, spreading the word, asking for advice about the game and getting nice comments about the project.
Release of a playable trailer
On November 28 (that’s tomorrow!) we will release a short playable trailer for you to feel the game atmosphere. This will also serve as a “Prologue” for the main plot. We have put a lot of effort to really reflect the level of quality we want to achieve.
We want this Prologue to be a start point for the community, so we will make it available to everyone that registers for free at www.TheLastDoor.com
Make sure to tell everyone about this playable trailer. We want to be in contact with the people interested in registering for free to get access to future releases. We will also make it available at multiple online game sites to let more people know about the project, some weeks later.
The countdown is ticking!
Solving doubts and new reward
We have tweaked the campaign to clarify some points about how the game is released and what you get. A lot of people told us to explain some things that were stopping them from backing the project. We have edited the main description and FAQ. The main concern was:
Am I backing to get the game or just extras?
The £10 pledge is probably the most similar to "you get the game", but we know that we haven't done well explaining it. For the sake of simplicity we are calling them just Premium members, which will have early access to all future chapters, not just the pilot. Other visitors can still register for free, but they will have to wait at least 2 months to play the chapter or become premium members themselves.
There is also a new reward for £5 with a digital copy of the original soundtrack, and early access to the pilot chapter. You also get the OST if your pledge is already above £5. If you took the £1 pledge you can still update it. And the pledge to be a character in the pilot chapter is now £200, we hope it will be more appealing now to those who want to be inside the game.
We made this video as a quick summary of the rewards available:
It's exciting to have all of you with us during this adventure!
