Heya everyone, we are officially into the final two days! This last week we have seen a pretty good surge in pledges, and the huge round of support from everyone trying to get us bumped up in listings was really amazing (I can’t express how much that meant to us :) Still, anything can happen in these last two days, so keep pushing! Every bit helps!
I figured this update would be a good time to chat about the project and the team in a more general sense. So, in our “final countdown” this seemed like a perfect chance to let everyone know just where we stand and how we plan to continue (not just in a couple days, but our attitude in general).
Basically, we are pretty passionate about what we are doing. It was actually pretty obvious before we even started that indie development was an uphill battle, especially if you are trying to do a project that takes more than a few months (and especially if you are relatively unknown)! We knew trying to go further with art, story, game play, and even music as a tiny indie team with no resources would be a pretty rocky path .. .but nothing worthwhile is ever easy. ;)
We want to assure everyone that our commitment to this project and seeing Bloom through to release isn’t dependent on this campaign (though, it would definitely make things a little smoother!). At the end of the day we believe in what we are doing as developers, as artists, and as gamers. So, when bumps appear in the road (of which I’m sure there will be plenty along the road), it is our unwavering dedication that forces us to find a way over them.
After this campaign, we will be doing another update outlining how we plan to continue (depending how the campaign ends, we have been pretty busy behind the scenes lately). Either way we are heading into a pretty exciting time for Bloom! We hope everyone will enjoy watching us move forward and keep rooting for us as we piece together an amazing game in an amazing world.
Thank you again so much for all of the support! It is your belief in us and our work that only makes us more dedicated to push ahead. You have placed a lot of trust in us, and we don’t plan to let you down. :)
