Good morning everybody!
As some of you may heard, it was recently announced that we have teamed up with Ubisoft to help release Cloudberry Kingdom. It's a big move, and a few of you have expressed some concerns, so I'll try to sum up the pros and cons in a nice little checklist below. And if anybody feels like I missed something, feel free to comment and I'll answer those too!
Ubisoft is going to help with the marketing of the game
We are now able to release on all major consoles (Finally Confirmed)
Nothing about the game has to change
The game will release more quickly (Due to us not screwing up tons of paperwork)Increased chances of success, which means making more games in the future
Some people may perceive this as selling out, or giving up our Indie status
Those are the biggest points that I can think of for now. A few of you have messaged me about concerns regarding the Kickstarter rewards, and whether the Ubisoft deal will change anything. There will be no affect whatsoever on any of the rewards :) We made a promise to you all, and they want us to fulfill it just as much as we do.
We looked at this opportunity long and hard before we decided that it was the best option. Really, after looking at everything - there was very little reason not to go ahead with it. We think it was far and away the best decision that could have been made for Cloudberry Kingdom and putting us in the best position to make a really great game available to as many people as possible. You guys were the first domino in this awesome turn of events. Thank you all so much for allowing us to make this step. You won't regret it!
