Knock-knock... and it shall be opened unto you

— A new game by Ice-Pick Lodge development studio has successfully met its first funding goal. This is the first such case in Russian game industry...

Today on August 30th 2012, 12:41 AM Moscow time, we reached the funding value required to complete the game. We’ve decided to develop this game without a publisher, counting solely on our capabilities and community support. Being risky for us, this is also an opportunity to create the game exactly as we see it and to distribute it as we deem right. For instance, we will send a free copy to everyone who donates at least $5 no later than September 11th. 

Right now we can conclude that risk was justified. There are almost two weeks left before the deadline, and we keep guessing how much will be acquired in total. Kickstarter doesn’t allow an untimely completion of a project.

  • Isn’t $30.000 insufficient to develop a game?
    Of course it’s not the whole our budget, and not even a half. We lacked this sum for full independence during the development period.

We are very glad to see your active support. It is a pleasure to know that players do have a choice even in the world where large corporations manage the industry’s destiny. By cooperating, players can support unconventional games. We foresee a bright future for crowd-funding projects.

  • Does it still make sense to pledge more?
    Sure! It’s an opportunity to get the game for half of its final price. And it will allow us to develop some additional features we’ve already told you about. Of course it does make sense. 

Thank you all for your support!

      насчёт пиар-компании, спасибо ag,ru :) я об этой игре узнал именно через него, и да, это моя первая игра с кикстартера :)

      Let's hope it's not as buggy as The Void :P

      @Alex Podgoredsky, спасибо! Стоит учесть, что белорусские разработчики все-таки собрали в три раза больше, так что их успех мы пока "повторили" не в полной мере. Но мы и не устраивали масштабной пиар-кампании - иначе пришлось бы на полтора месяца забросить разработку. Мы решили, что игра дороже, а деньги - сколько соберем, столько и соберем. Пусть лучше всё окупят будущие продажи! Still going forward because of your support!
      @David Pascall, thanks! We really dreamed about financial independence and now we've got it to complete the game. It was not possible without your support.

      > Молодцы! Смогли повторить успех братьев из Беларуси! Go forward!
      А кто эти братья из Беларуси, если не секрет?

    5. Creator David Pascall on August 31, 2012

      Congratulations! Glad to see that you're free to do exactly what you want with this now!

      Good developers with realistic ambitions — truly unusual for Russian gamedev. :)

      I wander, if the game would still be released for iOS, even though there are less money gained, than was officially required to do this. The sales would definetely be very high.

    9. Creator Сергей Мазаев on August 30, 2012

      кстати, и правда, здорово было бы получить игру через Стим
      правда очень рад за вас! я знал, что вы справитесь!

    10. Creator Ice-Pick Lodge on August 30, 2012

      Yes. We are going to make the game avaliable on Steam.

    11. Creator Kabraxis on August 30, 2012

      If I may answer your question, Kristoffer, because I asked the same just some minutes ago (on the comments page). :)

      "Kabraxis, yes, we planned it! We're still waiting for some response from Steam to specify some deatils of our participation."

      Participation in Steam's Greenlight. ;)

    12. Creator Daan Volcke on August 30, 2012

      Congratulations guys! Onward to the stretch goals!

    13. Creator Kristoffer H Bolton on August 30, 2012


      It's heartwarming to see another "risky indie venture" meet its goal. Pardon me if this question has already been answered elsewhere, but do you have any plans of making it available on steam and/or other online distributors?

    14. Creator Ice-Pick Lodge on August 30, 2012

      Sure, it's a kinda of 2D mode with some additional features.

    15. Creator Rob Jellinghaus on August 30, 2012

      The latter, from what I see in the videos.

    16. Creator Daniel West on August 30, 2012

      I got one question, is the game going to be first person 3d like the void or a 2.5D side scrolling sort of thing?

    17. Creator Luke Ridley on August 30, 2012

      Let's keep getting the word out :D

      Congratulations guys!

    19. Creator Kabraxis on August 30, 2012

      Hooray, a new update! :D This art style is fantastic... can't say it often enough.

    20. Creator Johnathan Glass Devaney on August 30, 2012

      So incredibly excited that you've passed the funding goal already! In a sea of current Kickstarter projects, this is the one that I'm truly salivating over :)

      Wish I could grab the $47 tier but I was laid off, so the $20 will have to do :)

    21. Creator Ice-Pick Lodge on August 30, 2012

      Работаем над этим, постарайтесь не сгореть до релиза.

    22. Creator Сергей Мазаев on August 30, 2012

      довайте, робяты, я сгораю от нетерпения
