Katalyka Status Update
Just wanted to contact everyone and let you all know what's going on.
It seems like the spiritual collaboration I am working with was able to work out an understanding with the military and some other various groups over the last few weeks, and things are feeling very positive for the future!
All the paper supplies are still safely in a climate controlled storage while I am saving up some money to purchase ink for printing with a different printer than I had budgeted for.
I'm not having troubles with hyperdimensional plasma attacks any more, so the only problem left to resolve is that I had budgeted for using the 4 color laser printer, and it turned out that I have to use an inkjet (for the card decks ONLY) instead, which will cost a bit more than I had budgeted for. But I'm well along the way to having the new ink budget, so once I am back in Washington state, I should be able to print up the decks without any more issues.
Once again thanks for your patience!
As for those who have complained, I've found that 99% of the people that have criticized the production of this game were not even people that purchased it. A year or two to publish a home made indie game with as many complex parts as this one is not unheard of (obviously that's not how long I was hoping it would take, but I had no idea I would get harassed by plasma beings), so it was a little overwhelming that I had so many people that didn't even back the game attacking me only a couple months after it was funded.
Sorry again for the delays, I really am looking forward to getting it finished, because so far all of the people that have played it have enjoyed it. (some were prototype testers, and a couple were people that downloaded the game from my gallery and made their own print and play prototype).
No huge news this time, just wanted to stay in touch since there were some concerns I wasn't updating enough in the past.
