We Did It!

Posted by Urvogel Games, LLC (Creator)

Congratulations Everyone! We've successfully completed our Kickstarter campaign! Thank you to everyone who backed and supported us during the past 30 days. All 6,570 of you! Thanks to your generosity, we are 401% above our initial target. After Kickstarter fees and other expenses, we'll have around $200,000 to work with bringing Saurian to life. Over the course of this month, we've watched backers start to develop their own community centered around this game, and your decision to open your wallets even further with your $10 on the 20th campaign was amazing,you collectively raised nearly $10k on the 20th alone.

So what happens next? Henry is going to have milk. A lot of milk. Alejandra is going to have some tequila, and the rest of us are going to take just a few days to recover from the shock of your generosity. And then, the adventure for us launches into high gear: We start making the game in earnest. We'll be turning our Kickstarter page into another hub of our social media outreach: you'll be able to catch major updates and progress reports here, but we recommend you also check out or subscribe our Facebook, Twitch, Tumblr, Twitter and Website for even more updates on our work. We also have a Discord where you can chat with other Saurian followers and developers! In the following days and weeks, we'll be sending out Backer surveys to verify contact information, make sure you're properly credited, clarify add on backer rewards, and oh yeah, VOTE FOR NEW PLAYABLES!

Thank you Ladies and Gentlesaurs. You've made ours and your dream game a reality. We're ready to make it.

      I backed this despite hating Steam with all the fury in my little heart, haha. Looks like a really fun game, but I was really hoping it would reach the console stretch goal. Hopefully the game makers will still consider that an option in the future (PS4!). Either way, great to finally have a game like this for dino geeks! Reminds me of some of the open world games I played as a kid as a wolf or as a lion (but it was the 90s so... very limited open world-style open world, haha).

      this was my first kickerstarter backing EVER! i made an account just for this in fact and i have to say i'm so proud to be apart of the games production even if i only had a small amount of the money to give (only in highschool=broke). i came here from arvalis (artist i follow) and i was hooked, i checked everyday for 21 days to watch its progress. i love the games ideas and cant wait for the final product! i wish you success.

      What an amazing turn out!!!! I can't wait to play the game!!!!

    39. Jimmy cephalin on

      This is exceedingly wonderful! you guy did incredibly well on the kickstarter, many individual backers rammed right through almost all the stretch goals, Its amazing man. Having a game that has scientific accurate dinosaurs is epic, and taking place in hell creek formation which hosts other organisms besides dinosaurs such as crocodilians, pterosaurs, turtles, small mammals, lizards, and so forth that lived in hell creek ecosystem. its so impressive that you guys are implementing all these dinosaurs and other organisms back to life in this game. The amount of work that went into this game, and the talented that you guys have, and the scientific rigor that you guys contain is so awesome. The thing that blew me away was the time you spent working on the plants of hell the roots! it sounds like one hell of a long time. But you have done well, Very well. Im interested to see what dinosaurs we can vote for on the poll for the two new playable dinosaurs. For my first pick ill be rooting for Montanaspinus, im hoping to see a model of some sort of this new species soon
      lol, just kidding. but again, congrats to all the devs and individuals involved in Saurian!
      now im going to celebrate saurians success!… avian dino style

    43. Sam "Savage" Cash on

      Urvogel Games, congratulations!
      And please, please, make it possible to pre-order through your site or BackerKit, so that it can go towards funding and stretch goals.
