Busters,

What a month! The feedback and positive response from Blubber Busters since the campaign kicked off has been overwhelming! It means the world to us. To each and every one of you that has pledged their support through the last few weeks -- Thank you!!! <3

That said, we have some sad news that we need to share. Despite our best efforts, we haven't been able to reach the number of backers we'd anticipated going into this adventure and the writing is already on the wall, so we'll be ending the Kickstarter prematurely.

Whoa, what? That sucks!  

Don't we know it! We've learned a ton throughout the last few weeks and have been busy behind the scenes figuring out our next steps as a team. We've also built an amazing community already and we want to keep sharing our journey with everyone!

 

What is the future for Blubber Busters?

We're still figuring out the details, but we're doing everything we can to make sure Blubber Busters happens! We want to get working. Like, right now. That's partly why we are ending things early! So we can get right back to the drawing board and start figuring out how to make it happen and come back swinging.  

Right now our number one goal is to begin production. We aim to put together a playable version of the game that TRULY represents everything in our campaign pitch and not just a simple prototype. We'll be sharing a lot more about what that means as we go!

We'll also be showing up at more conventions in 2017, so keep an eye on our socials and check out our updated website when it goes live soon! There are plenty of ways to keep up with us outside of Kickstarter.

Will you still be posting updates?

Yes! Updates will be slower, but they'll be juicier and more substantial than our daily updates have been so far.  

We'll have tons of share as time goes on, so stay tuned!

      Though I am saddened by this news I am solidly behind you guys 100%. Though I am not an "in" in the industry or a marketing major looking for a job I am more than willing to help you guys with anything you need a volunteer for if you are going to continue to pitch this and try to get it made. Ideas, an extra arm and leg, whatever.

      Good luck guys, hope down the line I'll be able to see this game get released!

      We'll support you where ever it lands. Really excited for the game!

      Damn shame. I hope you guys can figure out another way of getting the funding you need to get this project out the door. If you end up launching another crowd fund campaign, maybe consider Fig. I for one would be willing to put in a lot more money to actually invest in the game's success and not just receive a copy of the game/other physical reward.

      So much talent behind one game and such a solid demo. Somehow must have missed that dang elusive viral ingredient.

      Best of luck in the future!

      Best of luck! Hope we get to help the game made in some way going forward.

      Sadness. Oh well, better to be realistic and regroup. The game shows a ton of promise already, though, and I'll be around for the next attempt.

      Dang, sorry to hear! I urge you to keep pushing and try another kickstarter in the future, maybe try to get on some PCGamer site or others. I only initially heard about it because of Battle Chasers email, but funded immediately.

      I'll def purchase and support again if you do, thanks!

      i'm sorry, but i'll make sure to write about the Kickstarter and game again if you end up on Kickstarter or Fig or any other crowdfunding platform!
