Gates to Eisenwald are open!
It’s official – Legends of Eisenwald will be made!
Thank you all, our great and amazing 2729 backers! Thank you who just backed our project, thank you for all our active backers who spread the word about us and thank you who didn’t get upset with 4 letters sent to them :) Thank you Kickstarter that it exists and helps bring to life many different projects.
This month brought us a lot of new experiences. We answered to the questions of journalists, wrote press releases and compiled press packs, argued a lot about new ideas how to attract new backers. We followed how our project was becoming more popular and read on forums what is written about us and participated in some of the forums ourselves. We got used to that and we have to admit we are going to miss Kickstarter!
Also, while we didn’t reach our stretch goal at 85k, the hope is not lost! Maybe we will get the missing amount through Paypal and Yandex money. And since castle assault was more popular, maybe we can even get to that goal there.
Soon our communication will be better when we update our site and open a forum where all of you are invited.
Special thank you:
- Stoic – for calling their fellow-in-arms to help us in the difficult moment;
- Crate Entertainment – for helpful advice and interest to our project;
- Thilo Bayer – for huge help in conquering German (and not only) information space;
- Aleksey Podgoredsky - for being our main PR person in Russia and helping us already starting long before our Kickstarter campaign;
- Amy – for supporting us and for a lot of very useful information;
- ThunderStorm – for filling our sails with wind in the beginning;
- Daniel Defo (danieldefo.ru) and all his peers – for believing in our dream. This site did fundraising for us and they brought in $2000;
- $2000 backers – that they decided to “settle” in Eisenwald by making it better;
- Daniel King aka Darklord, Ben Waxman, Archon and all who was active – for your enthusiasm and believing in us. We will do everything we can to not disappoint you, we promise!
It seems there is a good tradition at Kickstarter – finishing a project to recommend someone else. These are small indie games that could use some help, big and famous will get their funding anyway. We like these projects and we backed them:
Cross of the Dutchman: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/251995184/cross-of-the-dutchman This dramatic legend is from the real past. And it’s going to be told by people who are truly enthusiastic about it.
Kitaru: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bensteele/kitaru Even though we are not fans of jRPG but their futuristic setting and art look spellbinding! And like us they are a small studio that wants to make a game of their dreams.
Kinetic Void: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/seanpollman/kinetic-void - We like ships. And in this game you can build them. Space ships, but nevertheless!
One more time – thank you all! Until we see you again – both here and in our forum!
