So we're finally here.
Here's the most important thing about that: you did this.
I know it gets said of Kickstarter so often that is basically banal, but your support allowed us to make this game. It really did. Sure, we might have made something without Kickstarting, but it wouldn't be this. And I am very, very proud of this.
We love you for it.
If you still, for some mad reason, haven't claimed your game, get it here: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresender
[If you paid £18 or more then the Grimoire PDF is now associated with your Humble account. £25 or more has the composed soundtrack MP3.]
This is also the point where you can help us one last time, by telling people about the game. Tell friends, post it on Facebook, on Twitter, on your Tumblrs and the myriad of other social things. Post a review on Steam, or send a postcard to your cousin in Australia. Tell someone in the pub. Whatever you do will help us consolidate this as a success, and allow Big Robot to continue to work on this and other, new games.
The game is now at Version 1.0, and is on sale via our website, on Steam, on Humble Store, on GoG.com, and on GamersGate. More outlets will surely follow.
What's next for Sir?
Well, we've completed the single player, but not done everything that we want to do with it. Dan is busy working on OSX and Linux stability issues, and those platforms will likely get their own unique updates soon. Tom is working on the main 1.1 patch, which will formalise and add UI for world generation. Remember that "Advanced" tab that was always greyed out? We're going to populate that with options, and give you much more control over the game.
Then there's multiplayer. As we've said before, this is sort of experimental for us, and is still a way off. However, we have a dedicated developer working on it, and the early playable prototypes are extremely promising. We can't say when exactly this will arrive, but when it does we have genuine reasons to be excited. And of course we'll let you know.
Again, thank you. This is an amazing milestone in a splendid journey.
