Follow the postapocalyptic sci-fi mystery!
Regardless, good luck in your future endevours!
@Andreas Trageser, I'm not sure what you mean by 'presumptuous' in this context.
If you happen to be one of the high level backers and you're saying that you'd have pledged $6000 instead of $2000 for the police robot figure tier, because that figure is really what you wanted and money is no object, then I'd accept that. Otherwise I will stick to my theory that had the tier prices been tripled people would have moved to a lower tier to accommodate their budget.
Most of people don't know what is a good game. Great work ! I'll buy episode 2 whatever.
@ET3D ...whatever you want to believe. Some could call it presumptuous. But at this point it doesn't matter anymore.
Keep up the good work. I'm glad to head that we'll get the game anyway.
@Andreas Trageser, I'm not sure how much it would have helped. Getting 3 time the money would have been hard, because most money comes from high level backers, and I imagine (though I may be totally wrong) that these people go more by how much they're willing to give than the exact reward. For the plebs, paying $3, $10 or even $20 for the game wouldn't have made much of a difference to the total sum of pledges.
Heard about the game on Dooger's stream (tha was maybe last week or something) and I was really impressed. It's sad to see the campaign fail, but best wishes to you and looking forward to see your work!
Hopefully my words are taken as the constructive criticism they're intended as:
I think one of the issues was that you guys never seemed to respond to the "flow" of the campaign as it progressed. Whether things were going well or not, you never had updates saying, "Well, we need to step things up. We're here at our funding level, when we need to be here. As such, we're adding these tiers. We're going to do this or that."
One never got the impression you were aware that a live campaign was happening at all. It was like all the updates had been written way in advance, and were just being posted by a computer on predetermined dates. It made things feel automated, like the creators weren't connected to what was going on. I'm not sure if that ultimately made a difference between success or failure. But it felt odd.
I also agree with some of the comments I glanced at that said the rewards levels were structured in such a way that it would've been nearly impossible for you to reach your goal. The levels that would've been the most enticing to people were probably priced too low. Even when the campaign was in its earliest days, the math seemed like it was flawed.
This campaign brought truly some exposure for your project. But I think you also clearly undersold yourself with the pledge levels.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate your willingness to offer the game for a fair price. But I think it is more then fair to raise the pledge levels some in look of the price of episode one and how much this second one will be even better.
and before you try a second run, make sure to announce it before the launch on social media.
I am looking forward to the eventual release.
Also good luck from me, guys.
До свида́ния! :)
"We do not care much about the money, we will continue our work."
Guys, you are AWESOME. This is true passion!
Yes, the campaign failed - but you do not. Be sure once you get it completed, you'll get my money (well, part of it) anyway.
Good luck. <3
Best of luck for this masterpiece!
Good to hear, that you will continue your work :) Will keep my eyes open on Steam (or GOG) and definitely will join again, if you return to Kickstarter ;)
Thank you so much, guys. You're awesome!
Really glad to hear the project is still going forward! I will buy into the next episode when you release it. Can't wait to see it!
Guys, you rock! Wish you best of luck! And one more thing. There is a bright side - now I'll buy Episode 2 for full price instead of $3 so you'll get more money ^_^
