Dear Tower 57 backers,
First off I would like to sincerely apologize for the lack of communication lately. As those of you who have contacted me directly in the past know, I'm usually quite good at replying privately, but I must admit I haven't visited the Kickstarter page much since we launched, and I missed a lot of the comments posted here.
As you all know Tower 57 was released for PC, OSX, and Amiga in 2017 and updated with improvements, patches and fixes throughout 2018 on several occasions. Thanks to your continued support I've been able to finish the game and thanks to 11 bit studios (the publisher of the digital version on PC) we were all able to see the final game on Steam, GOG, and other digital stores. The game has performed decently enough to help me work on the aforementioned patches and fixes.
Unfortunately, Tower 57 did not perform good enough in the long term to allow me to create the boxed version of the game. I sincerely apologize for this situation. I have tried as hard and as long as I could to keep this campaign promise, but with the game's revenue dwindling I was forced to look for a more "traditional" job in order to start repaying the personal debt I have accumulated throughout the development of the game.
I have reached out to 11 bit studios to help me reward the boxed version backers for their support and they have offered to give you all their games on Steam, including their latest strategy game Frostpunk, as well as the Original Soundtrack from the game, also on Steam. These games are: Anomaly series (5 games), Spacecom, Beat Cop, This War of Mine, and Frostpunk.
Once again, thank you all so much for your support all these years. I'm fully aware some of you will inevitably be disappointed by this news, and I can assure you I feel terrible about it. But despite things not turning out quite as well as we had all hoped for, I remain proud of what we have achieved, and I hope you enjoyed playing the game as much as we enjoyed making it!
If you originally backed for the boxed version of the game please contact me directly (benitosub at hotmail dot com) to receive Steam keys for all the aforementioned games.
