Why no news anymore?
Just wanna apologize for the lack of updates.
I think the biggest reason is just simply it's not fun for anyone when there isn't any good news.
Anyone following from the beginning knows we were initially hit pretty hard right when we started. Taxes, immigration legal fees and relocating our amazing artists pretty much burned through our funds within the first few months. The scary part is the first $15k+ of $43k goes right to the US government, KS, and Amazon. (The KS part is of course fair)
Anyways my point is over the last couple years we've been trying to keep this project alive and fund everything ourselves. However, as the game industry gets more and more competitive it's been harder for Mobot to be very profitable. This is a major reason we've been moving so slow. We've been trying to balance bringing in some cash flow from other projects and work on Knite at the same time. I know obvious question is, why not just only work on Knite and finish it so you can get paid that way? The short answer is there is just too much to do to have people work for free until completion. We need cash flow. There's thousands of hours done but, still a lot left.
So here's the news I've been putting off: At this point I'm the only one left working on the project. People just can't work for free and I understand that.
However, as slow as things are moving, I am still working and will keep this alive. For all of 2016, all Mobot revenue (outside taxes and stuff) has gone right to this project. I pay myself 0. ZERO! This includes all revenue from everything. Blocky Bot, Paper Monsters, Deer God, upcoming Demongeon, etc. The hope is that I'll be able get some help in the near future. For now I'm able to work part time and am actively pursuing options.
I want to be as clear as possible. I will not leave our backers high and dry.
My lack of updates doesn't mean I don't care. There's just not much fun to share right now. Please Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions or concerns.
I really do appreciate each and every one of you and I look forward to getting things moving at a more positive pace soon.
