While our Kickstarter was unsuccessful, we learned a lot from all the feedback we received from you, our backers. There’s also much to be said for the experience of running a Kickstarter, from this, our newly-reformed PR Team is ready to show you everything you wanted to see the last time around. Development We have begun development of our next area of the game, the Iceland! We think that this new part of the game will do a great job to display some of our systems we didn’t show last time, such as mana, weapon augments, and ranged combat! As the Iceland starts coming together, we will be posting updates about it across our Facebook, Twitter, Indie DB, and Tumblr! Sneak peeks and preview to follow; stay tuned!
Hank Zwally, our President and Lead designer, as well as myself were fortunate enough to attend this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Fransisco. Although it wasn’t Mojo’s first year at GDC, it was mine, and I found it a great learning experience. The conference was exciting for Hank and I on several fronts, such as finding potential sponsorships for our development. We spoke with several companies, such as AMD, Intel, and Nvidia, and are now fortunate enough to be in contact with several pillars of the Indie industry. Overall, we were really pleased with the way GDC went for us as a business experience, as well as overjoyed by the recognition that Indie game publishers received!
Building towards the Future:
In the next month we plan to expand the size of the team and amp up production on the Iceland for another go at Kickstarter later this year!

Mojo Games Studio is proud to share the milestone we have just passed: over $100,000 have been pledged towards bringing Cradle off the drawing board and onto your screens. Thanks to all of you who have been with us from the beginning or are just joining us now.
As of February 8th we still have 12 days to reach our goal of $350,000, and everything you do to see us through to the end matters. For this purpose, we have revamped our Kickstarter page to more accurately portray our vision, and clear up a few points of confusion. Be sure to check out the new section on augments, which features some gorgeous never-before-seen concept art by our Lead Concept Artist Josh Eiten.
Many of you have asked us about the previously-released Cradle by Flying Cafe. Out of respect for our fellow indie developers, and to avoid confusion, we have changed the name of our game to Aderyn's Cradle. To help spread the word, we have registered the domains AderynsCradle.com and CradleRPG.com, which for the time being link directly to the Kickstarter page. We ask that you share these far and wide!
Help us make it the rest of the way by spreading the word about Aderyn’s Cradle and showing off our new page! Share our new domain names on social media and let people know what has you most excited about our game. Here’s to one hundred fifty thousand more!
