Hey everyone! This is Jason Fader, the Project Director on System Shock. This has been a crazy 24 hours and we're already halfway there! The team was incredibly overwhelmed by your support and we truly appreciate it. You guys are awesome! :-D
A word from Stephen
Our fearless leader, Stephen Kick, the CEO of Nightdive Studios and Creative Director on System Shock has a few words to share:
I'm sitting at my desk after our first day of funding and I'm finding it very difficult to put into words just how grateful I am to everyone and the support they've given us over the last 24 hours. Your outpouring is inspiring and we're doing our best to answer the various questions, requests and concerns you have regarding the campaign, rewards, supported platforms and bugs you've encountered in our demo.
Here we go!
Platforms: We've been listening to your requests and have started discussions with Sony regarding a PS4 release - at this stage we can't confirm System Shock on PS4, but we will follow up with an announcement in the near future with more details.
The Demo: Thanks to everyone who has downloaded and played our demo - also thanks to those of you who have been sending us crash/bug reports. We're planning an update early next week that will fix various issues and bugs you've encountered while adding in a few additional features for you to experiment with.
RPG Elements: We're aware of the discussions going on and while there is still plenty of design work to do, we have the best intentions in mind of making a game that will both challenge the player, while still staying true to what people loved about System Shock.
As Stephen mentioned, we're working on a patch with fixes and updates based on all of your feedback. That should be out around Monday if everything looks good.
We're also looking into ways of connecting more closely with our backers with some snazzy things like access to a private Discord server so you can chat with the team while we work on stuff. If you have suggestions about more ways we can connect with all of you, please let us know :-)
There's quite a bit more brewing based on your feedback, but I'll talk about that in another update.
