      October 2015 sounds really good to me for some reason! Just sounds "right."

      Don't need any more meeps, currently. Looking back at the general comments I did indeed receive my keychain/-ring in February, that's even before Spring. :)
      I'm not worried about missed deadlines, won't even be if you miss this one. Hope you don't of course, but as long as I get updates, all is well. :)

      @Gonchi: Keyrings shipped a long time ago - in the Spring. Email support (at) hero-u (dot) net if you ordered one and didn't get it.

      Thanks for mentioning the Lone Wolf game. In addition to Sierra games, the Lone Wolf games played a special part of my childhood in the 80s and 90s. There is even a LW game for iOS and Android now (the 4th part of the series was just released). These past few years have been very exciting for the rebirth of old projects.

      Thanks for the update! I'm continuing to enjoy them, and seeing the progress

      Thanks for your update. It sounds like have a realistic expectation for the game development timeline. I love dialogue and character interaction, but I know how complicated they can be. Most of all I encourage you to take your time and make the best game you can. We'll be happy to wait.

      Thank for the no nonsense update! Much appreciated.

      Keychains haven't shipped yet, right?

    9. Vincent Prescious Altieri on

      Thanks for the recommendations! Backed both. Gilbert game looks classic Lucasarts. Can't wait to see the final game in all it's glory next year!

    10. BigD on

      Thank you for the update. I have no doubt the game will be incredible.

      i love how fresh and honest you are in your posts (for better or worse!) and i am still more than happy to have been a backer and am prepared to wait endlessly in eager anticipation of what i know will be an AMAZING game! :)

      Awesome to hear the news Corey - and as others have stated here taking the time to make the game as awesome as it can be is better than rushing it out imo as well. Most of the kickstarters I've backed have been late - but oh-so-worth the wait - I seem to be both blessed and cursed in that regard. :)

      Happy Thanksgiving!

    13. Rinu on

      Thanks for the honest update. Good to see you are slowly getting there. :) I keep my fingers crossed for ya.

      Happy Thanksgiving.

      Sounds awesome!! Take your time Corey and Lori! I do like your rough time estimates. Actually, what I am super excited to see is the backer portraits for the yearbook. Would we be able to see a preview of that at an earlier date than October? :)

    15. Jennifer McMurray on

      I'm absolutely fine with the longer development as well. Take all the time you can to make the best game possible.

      Oh, and thanks for the deals on merchandise too. I got myself a Meep and a keychain. I couldn't resist. :D

    16. Frank on

      Sounds good. I'm glad you guys can afford to stretch out development that long.

      In this case, late and great is much preferred over on-time and mediocre.

    18. Eric J. Francois on

      Just take the time you need to make the best game you can. In the last years I've become so frustrated with big game titles that get released in a version that you wouldn't even have called a beta, 10 years ago. That's what I love about Kickstarter: no big company pushing the game out of the door on schedule, even though it's not nearly ready for shipping.
      I'll wait patiently and be all the more happy when it is released eventually.

    19. Murray Lorden on

      Nice one. I backed it, and I'm happy to wait until Oct 2015. As long as you finish it, and it's fun, I'm happy. :) I've still got all my old Sierra games, including Trial By Fire, which I loved. Looking forward to it. All the best!

    20. Rambutaan on

      Damnit Corey, you always have good recommendations when it comes to Kickstarter projects - might as well just hand over my wallet to Amazon :P. Cheers for keeping us posted.

      Thanks for the update, guys!

    22. Cheeseness on

      Totally comfortable with the longer schedule. Games are hard work and take time :)

      If you're comfortable with it, I'd love to try an updated demo/tech demo in the meantime though!

      A good game that captures your imagination can last a very long time. Like many people still playing your past adventures. I'm glad you're not willing to rush something out the door. Hopefully you can also enjoy the creation process along the way.
