NEKRO LIVES - ON STEAM!
Its been a long time coming, but we’re finally live! Our first official trailer, new units, new mechanics, new zones, it’s all finally here!
CHECK OUT OUR NEW KICKASS TRAILER HERE, AND DON'T FORGET TO CLICK "YES!"
As we continue to expand and develop the game we wanted to hit the ground running on one of the only platforms that could possibly furnish Nekro with as much polish and community integration as possible. Steam Greenlight will do just that. Since Nekro is our first title under the darkForge banner, the Greenlight process is required in order to publish our game through steam.
So, this is our call to arms! Vote YES for Nekro, comment, link, tell everyone! This is the moment of truth, and it is all thanks to you! You guys were all there from the beginning; you’re not just part of the Nekro community, you guys, our backers, are part of the team. From everyone here at darkForge, thank you sincerely for your support and camaraderie, we could not have done all this without you!
Your estimated delivery date is next month! Is Nekro coming out next month?!?
One year ago, we had no idea how well our Kickstarter was going to do. We wrote down an estimation date as exactly one year from our time of posting the Kickstarter. Then, thanks to you, our amazing community, we raised more than we ever thought possible through the KS campaign. Because of this, we added more content and features into the design of the game. However, more features means more time to make them. Because of this, we are still holding to our late 2013/early 2014 release date. That means all rewards will be delivered about a month after the game is released (as we need time to print CDs and pack boxes).
So, are the rewards still happening?
Yes!! Though the game has changed in big ways from our original concept, the rewards we promised have remained unchanged. But please keep in mind - we cannot send out any rewards until the game is complete as we cannot afford to send out more than one shipment of rewards per person. This marries the rewards to the release of the game. We appreciate your patience, and I assure you it will be worth it! If you have moved, or changed any personal information since the time of the Kickstarter one year ago we will be sending out a survey later this year to collect all necessary up-to-date information.
What’s next on the agenda?
We are marching at an amazing rate to the end of pre-alpha, into alpha, then into our private beta! Our biggest priority is to get the game on Steam, so we can facilitate the closed beta and get all of you playing Nekro as soon as possible! But we need your help, please tell all your friends and family to click YES for Nekro on Steam Greenlight! We can’t do it without you!
As always, you guys are amazing. We appreciate everything you’ve done for this project and we could not have gotten to this monumental milestone without you. We have a long way to go, but there is no doubt that the end is in sight and that Nekro is turning out to be the amazing game we all envisioned an entire year ago. Thank you!
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them in the section below, or post them to our Greenlight page. The forums on our website will now be officially carried over to Steam, please post all subsequent threads to Steam.
Thanks again, backers, now let’s go Raise Hell!
