Update #9: Exciting News!!

3 likes

Hi everyone! As the Kickstarter draws to a close I wanted to reiterate how thankful I am for each and every person who's backed and supported our campaign and helped us spread the word in the last 30 days!

This was the first KS campaign we've attempted and we really learned a lot about promoting, marketing, and specific ways to talk about Overpower.

Instead of trying to relaunch the campaign in the future... we've decided to move forward with an Early Access Release on Steam on March 2nd!

We've launched a brand new website at http://www.overpowergame.com

Here you can Pre Order the (PC) game for $12.99 or purchase Instant Access for $19.99 and we will email you a Steam Key immediately and you can begin playing Overpower right away!

Next week we'll be starting a series of weekly Developer Play Sessions on Tuesdays / Thursdays / Saturdays.  Everyone with a Instant Access Steam key is welcome to join us! We'll begin growing the community and using player feedback to polish and shape the game together.

Visit our Events Page for more information about Play Session Times.

Thank you again everyone for your support and I look forward to playing Overpower with all of you on Steam in the very near future. :)

Cheers,

-Adam

      I think the campaign was still beneficial for Overpower, it helped to get the game known by more people and, generally, I think the players appreciated the demo and videos a lot. It's difficult to get a successful campaign on KS, it requires a lot of preparation, contacts, media coverage, large number of supporters coordinating effort... Pretty sure that there's a lot to learn though from an unsuccessful attempt. You have a solid product, I hope the Steam launch is going to work well!

      It is a bummer Michael but its tough these days with so many people crowd funding games.. it takes a lot of social media experience which we didn't have too much of. Luckily we do have experience making games and making them fun and we're exciting to get people playing Overpower and seeing where it goes with the community actively involved! :)

      I'm so sad to see this campaign for such a great game idea get so little attention and financial support. Only 14-ish hours to go, yet it's hardly even reached but 25% of the monetary goal. :(

      I honestly thought there would be a far greater response to and demand for such a game, seeing as it's basically Team Fortress 2 x a Medieval/Fantasy MMO—what's not to love?
