Pledge Manager and progress in development
Hello, our dear Backers!
First of all, we want to say sorry for the downtime in sharing with you the Backer Kit...
We planned to do that much earlier, but we had one major issue... Time. Things to do in 'operations' with Essen and our new titles, just engaged us so much, that Irek has decided to put that a little bit in time. It's of course because we still have a long time to delivery, and we did not want to give you a solution, which we are not sure for the 100%.
But still, step by step the configuration is being made, and we are closer and closer to finish all the preparations. I believe I will be able to finish most of the configuration up to the end of the current week. I will update you guys about the results on Sunday evening.
A little update from the authors:
As for the progression of the development and design perspective, we're almost there, and we can see a bright light there at the end of the tunnel. On that note, we're working hard with David Decker while Zoe and Hideaki are waiting for their turn since we want to have a solid base game before inviting other agents on the mission.
Since working on a game with multiple paths is challenging and we had to develop our tools to be able to work together from different countries. One tool allows us to access an editable version of the cards at any time, without depending on software licenses and the other allows us to save the game. Saving allows us to “load” the game from that point instead of having to restart every time and helps us see which cards we picked on our most successful runs.
Update form the production crew:
Filip and Alexander are traveling on Monday to Kraków, to one of our production partners to check all materials, discuss the quality and revies the best possible ways to produce all component. We will try to share some photos from this visit with you next week.
We all want to be more communicative with you, Agents. We will also try to show you more "behind the scenes" from our work, to make you feel more comfortable.
We are also waiting for the final project on the game mat. But we don't want this influence the Backers who want to put the pure pledge without a game mat, and we will probably release Backer Kit without this element, asking Backers who will be interested in the game mat, to wait week or 2 for it.
Also, guys, if you have any question for us, feel free to send it to us. We are available for you here, or you can send an e-mail to us to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hear you soon (on Sunday).
