30 days and $204,000 left!

Our Wonderful Backers from Kickstarter,

www.projectawakened.com

Despite all of your support, we did not quite make it on Kickstarter, but we did rework the vision of the game based on your feedback, and restarted a pledge and pre-order drive!  We want to get the first version of Project Awakened into your hands this November.

www.projectawakened.com

At this moment, 783 believers have pledged $45,646 toward the game.  There is 30 days left to make it to $250,000 so that we can give you this demo as a well polished playable game, open to modding and multiplayer - 

You can use Paypal or credit cards, and we are refunding all pledges if we don't make our $250,000 base goal.  Project Awakened still needs you, and you can still have a chance to play it...come join us!!

Enormous Thanks,

Phosphor Games Studio

The new campaign for TWO Project Awakened games has begun!

The Results are in...

...and the new campaign is on!

During the 1 week survey on ProjectAwakened.com, over 4000 of you came to tell us your thoughts, and we are happy to announce that as of today, we are starting a new 6 week funding campaign as you requested, with some changes to the vision based on the amazing feedback we have gotten from the community over the last few months.

Come Join The Project Awakened Founders Club

If we don't make $250,000 in 6 weeks, we refund everyone that pledged. If we reach our minimum goal, we will be making TWO games:

  • Project Awakened - Danger Room (2013)
  • Project Awakened - Subject (2014, exact date TBD, see below) 

 We don't announce the new campaign to the world until Monday the 25th, but until then we have some exclusive Early Adopter packages for the community, with great free bonus items. Come get them now while you can!

Project Awakened - Danger Room

Pledge Goal: $250,000
Release Date if Funded: November, 2013

A single player game in UE3 like the Special Abilities Video you all loved, with more abilities, lots of outfits, and more AI and world items to interact with! It will be a blast, and a great first taste of creating your dream video game character. Multiplayer and Modding available, unsupported. 

Project Awakened - Subject

Release Date if Funded: By the end of 2014

Learn about the compelling and dangerous world of Project Awakened, as you take your created dream character through the first of many single player stories set in the PA Universe!

This brand new world of technological evolution has expanded humankind's horizons to unimaginable reaches. But not for you - your world has never seemed smaller. You wake drugged, woozy, tagged, and imprisoned. You soon realize that this is no normal prison, and noone is coming to save you. It is a secret place, a dreaded place whispered of among the Awakened. Secret facilities set up by private companies, black market arms dealers, global crime syndicates, rogue nations, even the security forces of nations who masquerade as legitimate under the excuse of 'national security'. Facilities where kidnapped Awakened are mercilessly tested to see just how far people can take these new found enhancements...and ultimately what is needed to break them. You must survive the grueling tests of your unknown captors long enough to unravel who they are, why you are here, and how to escape, if escape is even possible.

  • $500,000 - We commit to a June 2014 launch of 'Project Awakened - Subject' 
  • $1M - We commit to also having a small open world modern day city hub for sandbox play with your abilities, fight escalating spawned enemies based on your power level, and MP matches. 
  • $1.5M - We do both games in UE4 (with the important note: features at release would depend on what is possible with UE4 at the time) 

A THANK YOU...AND A QUESTION

To Our Amazing Supporters

THE END OF KICKSTARTER HAS COME

Despite your fantastic support, we didn’t quite make it. We still consider it a huge success to have so many of you come to share our vision of what the future of action gaming could look like!

For nearly 7 years now, the core vision of Project Awakened has survived a publishing icon crashing around it, a team of unemployed devs trying to rebuild it with no funding, and years of hopeful, excited discussions with publishers and financiers that one by one turn to nothing. So, missing the mark on a Kickstarter isn’t going to break its spirit…this game of ours has learned to take a punch ;) We will not let this dream go, because this is the game we have always wanted to make and share as artists, and play as gamers. Thousand of you have shown us that you feel the same way.

THE BIG QUESTION NOW IS - "WHAT’S NEXT?"

In the final days of the Kickstarter campaign, There were 2 questions we've heard over and over:  

  • "Can you make this campaign longer? I JUST found out about it, and more people need a chance to find out too!" 
  • "Can you add a Paypal option? I can't do it with Amazon."

In the spirit of Project Awakened being a revolutionary new vision for gaming, we are going to take a revolutionary step in decided what we do now - you, the community of fans, get's to decide the game's fate with the two simple questions! Head to our web site and take the quick survey.

http://www.projectawakened.com/

YOUR ANSWERS WILL TELL US WHAT TO DO

We will keep this survey open for 1 week. At the end of the week, we will make the results public, and unveil to the world whether we are going to move forward with Paypal crowd funding now, or continue to slowly work on the project in our spare time.

WE WANT TO BE RESPONSIBLE WITH YOUR MONEY 

 It is important to us that we don’t take your money unless we are sure it will be enough to start a prototype. So, if the community tells us they will back us enough, we will move forward with a new 6 week fundraising campaign on our own website that will take both credit card and Paypal donations. 

 ADDING A NEW VERSION OF THE GAME, THAT WE WILL GET TO YOU SOONER 

 As part of this new campaign, we are announcing that we will be building, prior to closed beta, the Project Awakened Create-a-Player Sandbox Demo. It will basically be this...

with more abilities, a decent set of visual outfits, and more objects and AI to mess around with. You all loved this video, now we want to give that to you this year!

SO, COME TAKE THE SURVEY, AND DECIDE THE FATE OF PROJECT AWAKENED!

IF YOU WANT TO STAY CONNECTED 

A huge heartfelt thank you once again, and we’ll catch you in a week with the survey results!

1 DAY LEFT! You're Always Innocent When you Dream

AMAZING, AMAZING backers!,

Thank you for the support, the excitement, the energy, spreading the word, and everything else you've given!  The gains in the last few days have been crazy good.  We still have a big gap in these last 24 hours, but it's happened before.  As Tom Waits put it, You're Always Innocent When You Dream ;)

Go, spread the word for all it's worth for one more day!!!

Thanks,
