christmas time is fast approaching and we are trying to get the backer kit site for the physical rewards up and running before that.
The reason we are doing this via an extra site is simply that after the survey it became clear we wouldn't be able to work with all your individual requests for the exchange of physical rewards vs digital or the other way of adding a few bucks to help us in development and still get the physical rewards. So we needed a software to manage that and backerkit is the most suitable way to do it.
This format is complicated for backerkit (or shop sites as well), so we needed to wait for them to support us with an "exchange" feature workaround, but hopefully they will get that sorted soon.
In the meantime work on two "random repeatable single player missions" has begun, as has the big skill overhaul, which we are very excited about, but which obviously will be a ton of work for our team, as it effects the entire game's balancing.
So, you can see we have been keeping busy. One thing that did become clear is, that we will not be able to afford a tablet version - it is simply too much work for the team to be doable in any sensible timeframe and it would prevent us from doing anything else in that time. I am very sorry for the folks who backed explicitely for a tablet version and we have spent a good bit of time on it during development, so it is twice as regrettable. But the reality of our situation is simply that it would ruin us to spend the required time for this version. So this is off the table unfortunately.
In other news, we have launched another collaborative project we are VERY excited about, but that is secret yet. We have a list of Shadowrun creative people past and present already joining in, so we can hopefully announce that soon.
That's it for today folks and as always,
we will see you in the shadows
