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.
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!
