Hi All,

So we have two pieces of news for you. 

Firstly, it seems we didn't make it to our total. There are many reasons for that, we definitely made mistakes before and during campaign, and we are going to study those mistakes intently. 

The second piece of better news, we are not going to lay down our tools just yet! We are considering a few options now: 

1. Self-financing. It's not easy, as the project is quite expensive, but since we managed to reach this far with money from our own pockets we can try to do it again. It will definitely postpone the projected release dates, but we believe it’s better late than never. 

2. External-financing. During the campaign we received a few offers from other companies and individuals willing to invest in the project. Negotiations may take time and both parties need to weigh all the pros and cons before moving forward. Each of us has different points of view about the future of the project: how it should look, what the core gameplay should be, should it be freemium or premium amongst other things. Of course sometimes the two parties can't can’t agree and have to part ways. 

3. A new Kickstarter campaign. We don't know when that could happen or if it would happen at all but it’s something we are considering. We can try to improve the project, make it more appealing to the audience, better spread the word and build a community - things we didn’t focus on before that we can try now. 

4. Steam, Early-access. While we we didn’t make it here on Kickstarter, we are doing quite well on Greenlight. 

 We've made it to the Top 100 projects and maybe we can participate in an “Early Access Program”. This allows you to buy the alpha/beta version of the game and help provide testing and feedback, and funds to finish the game. But it’s Steam who choose the projects for this program, not the fans, which provides a bit of uncertainty. So, that’s it. 

We want to thank all who tried to make this project a reality and as good will gesture, we’d like to give out a few of our games for free. Backers can send their email address in a private message and in 1-2 weeks we will prepare a free game for you for PC or Android.

Best Regards,

      You already have my vote on Steam Greenlight, and I'll be happy to get the game on Steam Early-Access. I just hope it gets chosen. :)

      Good luck! I hope you'll start a new Kickstarter campaign - and a successful one this time.
      The PayPal option mentioned by Patrick Carisson is fine too.

    7. Patrik Karlsson on

      You should give us a paypal adress, I'd be happy to pledge the same amouth that I did here without hesitation, and I'm sure many others as well.
