Our plans going forward..

Thank you again!

To everyone who has supported our campaign so far :)

You are making our dreams come true and helping us provide you with something truly special.

In the last update we mentioned some Adventures in Game Development themed merchandise. Well, as it turns out it has been pretty popular so we have been looking into that heavily and should be able to provide what everyone wants. Expect more news on that soon!

We are into our third day right now and have just crossed the $45,000 mark. That's close to one third of our goal already. Which is astounding!!

We couldn't be happier with the progress and the support that has been shown.

To help keep everyone in the loop we have planned on (and has been suggested) performing a live stream throughout the campaign as well as updating via our YouTube video series. On that note we are live right now with SegaAddicts who are interviewing us and taking viewer questions. So if you have anything you want to know or are unsure about regarding the game or our campaign, get your questions answered!!

To those who didn't notice, we added more custom Dreamcast consoles since they have been really popular. Also, we have added some add-ons for extra copies of the game digitally or physically. You can also grab copies of our dev notebooks if that's your thing.

Thank you for all the support so far, let's see this thing through :)

Our first 24 hours!!

First of all: Thank You All!

 For those who weren't in the live stream when we launched the campaign -- we were extremely overwhelmed by the immediate support. We raised a little over $37,000 in 24 hours and set this thing off with great momentum. 

We couldn't have asked for a better start and we really appreciate you all for the support you have given us :)

Now on to the good stuff. Our friends in the gaming press have been showing us some love. Here are a few of the latest: 

Also, UAH (University of Alabama Huntsville) wrote an article on us a little while back thank you to those guys! 

Lastly, a fellow YouTuber DreamcasticChannel posted a nice video about our campaign.

We sold out of THE CUSTOMIZER tier so we have opened up a secondary tier offering the same rewards. These will be limited to 5 more so grab them whilst you can. They will go very fast as 2 of the second batch have already sold.

Some of our backers have been asking questions about certain tiers or how some things will work so we have added the most common queries to our FAQ. I will clear one thing up though. We are planning to launch a Steam Greenlight campaign once our Kickstarter is over. This means that those of you who purchased the game for PC, Mac or Linux will have access to the game on all three of those platforms if we are successful. 

Additionally, we have included some new add-ons which I will detail below: 

$10 - Additional digital copies of the game for desktop platforms (WIndows, Mac or Linux) restricted to $15 tier or above. 

$10 - Grab yourself a digital copy of the teams development notebooks! 

$49 - Additional physical Dreamcast copy in your choice of region! 

To grab yourself any of these extras, just increase the amount of your pledge without adjusting your tier! If you want to be extra kind and save us from the crazy math behind this then shoot us a message letting us know what you would like and we can take note now :) 

We are in the middle of figuring out how we can offer our backers Adventures in Game Development merchandise. How cool would it be to wear a shirt that has "Weeeeeeeeeeeelll" written on it!? If you guys have any ideas what you would like to see or what you would wear, let us know. We want to offer whatever you would want. If that means mugs with the Elysian Shadows logo on then that's what we will do. 

Keep a look our for other add-ons in the next couple of days as people want them. Please help us spread the word and let us know what kind of merchandise you would like! Thank you for all the support so far!
