Language Translations and another Free Game!
I've gotten a lot of questions about which languages will be supported with the new game. The past Delaware games have been available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Russian! The current budget would only include the English version. However, once the game is completed I would revisit the publishers of the last games and evaluate translating it then. If that option didn't pan out, I would run a very small kickstarter (about $2,000) next year to cover the cost of translating the game. The most important thing is getting this game funded and into development now. Our intent is to make it available in the languages we previously supported.
The second part of this update is we've decided to offer an additional bonus game to all backers pledging $50 or more! I was originally planning to wait a few months to announce this but in the past few months I've been reworking the original Curse of Midnight Manor in anticipation of the 10th anniversary of the start of the game series! The updated game features up-scaled graphics and environment lighting tweaks to refine the experience. But that's just the beginning. We're reworking the story to include additional layers and some new gameplay! This will truly be a Special Edition.
Originally scheduled for release in early 2014, I'm letting you all know everyone who commits to a pledge of $50 or more will receive a DRM-Free copy of The Curse of Midnight Manor Special Edition when it's completed! If you're curious to know what the graphic update amounts to, I've made comparisons below!
Thank you, everyone! We're over 50% now so let's spread the word and get this series back on track!
