This Is It! You Did It!
Well, after an incredible thirty days of campaigning we've finally hit the finish line, exhausted but triumphant. Not only did you all hit the funding goal, you blitzed through it and kept going, all the way to $58,893 AUD (including PayPal pledges)! So not only have you all made sure that Hollow Knight is going to get made, but we've managed to achieve a massive amount of stretch goals too! We've got extra areas, new quests, a Wii U release, and in the last few hours we manage to get Hornet in the game as a playable character! Get hyped!
We've been saying this all through the campaign, but we can't really say it enough: THANK YOU! Without all of your support, passion and belief in the project, Hollow Knight would never be in the position it is now. We're a small team, and we've been blown away by the sheer magnitude of your generosity and enthusiasm. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!
So what now?
Firstly, if you missed out on backing, we are going to keep the PayPal pledging option on our site open for a bit longer. That way, we can also work towards a few more stretch goals. The Colosseum is within sight!
Secondly, we'll keep sending out backer updates to everyone (don't worry! They won't be quite so frequent) so you'll still be seeing a whole bunch of Hollow Knight in the coming months. And you can also follow our progress via our Twitter, Facebook, or the Blog on our Website teamcherry.com.au.
In the next month or so we'll be sending out a survey to request people's details so that we can start sending out backer rewards once we're ready. So keep an eye out for that. Though we will remind you if you miss it!
Right now though, we're going to get some sleep! It's now noon for us, and it's been a hectic final 24 hours! We are trying to keep up with your questions and emails, but if you notice a bit of a delay we haven't disintegrated from sheer exhaustion, we're just in bed dreaming happily of insects and ruined kingdoms :)
Anyway, that's it for now, but stay tuned!
