You have probably noticed by now that we may not hit our pledge total this time around. However, Shadow Remnants is something we are going to see through.
That being said, we are still considering our options going forward but we will most likely be re-launching fairly soon with a revised pitch and a smaller funding goal. If we reach the smaller funding goal it will probably still take us longer than we originally planned to finish the game. However, this would at least give us the funds we need for to pay for the necessary assets. Regardless of what happens, we still plan to work on Shadow Remnants whenever we have time.
This brings me to our second point: because it is looking like we might not be able to work on Shadow Remnants full-time at this point, after talking it over, we have come up with something that is both exciting and will likely fit our scenario. While it may take us a while to finish the final product, we have discussed the possibility of releasing a playable version of the game in smaller increments as we hit milestones and add features. In order to preserve the storyline experience for the final version, we will be putting more early focus on the features that offer replay value in the game as opposed to the story. However, an early version without any story elements at all would feel lacking, so we have discussed the possibility of basing our early playable versions around events unrelated to the main storyline. We feel that this development style may offer the best chance of success for this project as it will keep the excitement around Shadow Remnants alive as we work towards adding more.
At any rate, that is what we have in mind so far, so let us know what you think! Speaking of which, as promised, we've set up a community forum so that we can still directly interact with everyone even after the kickstarter is over. We're still adding to it, but please feel free to sign up and let us know what you think about all of this over there as well: http://shadowremnants.com/forum.
