Though we have been fortunate enough to self-fund a majority of this project, we have come to Kickstarter to push us through the final stretch of production and get spaceBOUND to as many friends, parties, and people as possible.
The most important part of this Kickstarter is to raise the funds to acquire the appropriate funding for licenses, marketing, some extra art, and sound. This has all been calculated to account for the physical rewards we will be sending out to the backers and is an accurate depiction of our use of the funds.

Risks and challenges
Here, at Gravity Whale Games, we come to work every day with energy and a "going gold" mindset. We are dedicated and fully committed to finishing spaceBOUND and creating the best experience possible for you to enjoy. Even though, with any sized project, there are some risks.
The highest risk is that spaceBOUND may take longer than expected to be completed. Though we are confident with our current time-line and are fully committed to seeing the game through, game development can be a lot of work and has many unexpected challenges.
Thanks for checking out our Kickstarter and we appreciate your support!
