We freaking made it!

Holy crap guys!

It's been a hell of a ride, and it came down to the fire, but we made it! The kickstarter is a success, and LOI is fully funded.

I apologize for not having a longer update for you at the moment, but I am exhausted and beside myself with excitement. A much more thorough update will be issued later tonight or tomorrow,


For those of you late to the party there is now a Paypal link with many of the reward tiers from Kickstarter still available. I will also add the addons to it in a little bit, as there are still prints and t-shirts available.

I can't wait to begin full-time work as soon as I have calmed myself (and my wife and kids: ) down a bit - this is gonna be epic: )

Cheers guys!

      *PHEW* that was close. I sincerely surprised when I saw that notification pop up in my inbox, but I'm glad I did. Knowing this project is going forward makes the world seem a little brighter!

    2. Creator Benjamin David Lee on August 12, 2013

      glad this made it close to the wire indeed

    3. Creator Nightrnr on August 12, 2013

      Holy freaking crap, indeed! I'm so glad this made its goal. I missed the action on the last day but that must've been down to the wire.
      I wonder why more people didn't go for "EARLY BIRD DELUXE!"?

    4. Creator Sean Kennedy on August 12, 2013

      Congratulations! Really looking forward to this project coming together!

    5. Creator Justin Greenberg on August 12, 2013

      WOOT WOOT!!

      I was scared this one wasn't going to make it!! Congrats and make this thing something special for all of us who believe in it!!

    6. Creator Kyle M on August 12, 2013

      Was excited to see that this kickstarter hit the goal over the weekend :D Was worried that it wouldn't make it.

    7. Creator Glenn Magus Harvey on August 12, 2013

      Yeah, would like to see turn-around take less time and the controls in general feel smoother. Also, going down a ladder seems to require standing precisely on top of the ladder. Also had some trouble wall-jumping. And automatically ledge-grabbing might be useful.

      But yeah, I can't help but think of the game Eternal Daughter. I have the title screen theme in my head as I write. Hope this game becomes as epic as that game -- or even more epic!

      About updates... Give the guy a breath (smile). He is one, and not the whole office full of people. It's an incredible excitement. In addition to the global joy of it is also spent a lot of nerves. Give them little sleep. Every time when good people can start free art... i feel childhood joy. Love this place.

      Another congrats to autor, and thanks for all people who made this. You are best guys and girls.

    9. Creator Nik Lipor on August 11, 2013

      I only have one request, please tweak the controls so they are more responsive than the ones in the demo. Other then that I am excited it was funded and can't wait to give it a whirl once it releases. Congrats!

    10. Creator enthralled on August 11, 2013

      Congrats everyone!
      I can't believe how darkfalzx, and most of us seemed so depressed just 5 days ago with the 50% update. LOL
      This is a miracle! Thanks for making it happen :]

    11. Creator BH on August 11, 2013

      Congrats! It'll be great to finally see this project come together after all these years. As others have said, make sure to get back on top of those blog posts!

    12. Creator Glenn Magus Harvey on August 11, 2013

      Actually, let's do Meade. I like his pose more. Even though Zoe is still the hardest boss.

    13. Creator Glenn Magus Harvey on August 11, 2013

      Congratulations!!! :D Was worried that it wouldn't make the deadline but it pulled through!

      How can we fans get in touch with you, by the way? To give feedback on the demo and stuff?

      And I'm going to change my avatar to Zoe from Monster Tale in celebration.

      I am so glad to see you make this dream a reality. Simply outstanding.

    21. Creator Chris J Capel on August 11, 2013

      This just goes to show Andrew that you should NEVER LOSE HOPE, NEVER GIVE UP AND NEVER STOP TRYING UNTIL THE END. Couple of posts ago you'd written yourself off, now here we are - fully funded, your dream now has the cash to see it to completion. Well done - now make the best damn game you can! :)

    22. Creator Christian Thomas James Hughie on August 11, 2013

      This make quite the comeback! Glad to see it funded and will be made.

    27. Creator T.J. F. on August 11, 2013

      So glad it so nicely popped over the threshold! I'm sure you pushed like a lady in labor to see this through!

      Sorry I bumped down my pledge, though I hope I can bump it up through PayPal. Likely, though, I'll be keeping an eye out for its release. When it gets to Steam (WHEN), be sure to make dat soundtrack available too, eh?

    28. Creator Matthew B. on August 11, 2013

      Congrats! I was getting really sad this last week when it looked like Iya wasn't going to make it. So glad it did! :D

    29. Creator Jonathan Garcia on August 11, 2013

      Never a doubt in my mind this would make it. Nice guys can finish first it seems. Can't wait to see this thing complete.

    30. Creator Peter Jacob on August 11, 2013

      ^_^ Grats. Was a close thing.

    31. Creator Ricardo Chirino on August 11, 2013

      Yeah, it was nerve wracking for me, I can't begin to imagine how it must've felt for Andrew, but I'm very happy it came to a happy conclusion. I'm on a diet and to celebrate I ate a big ice cream! Cheers! Get some rest and then keep us updated with your progress. I'm sure it'll be a lovely game.

    32. Creator Thomas Keene on August 11, 2013

      Yay! Please update the blog frequently.

    33. Creator Ivan Kodjabashev on August 11, 2013

      Well what do you know! You did it! There is hope and justice for platformers and pixel art after all :). And I hope all these money will be enough for you. Good luck!

    34. Creator Stephen Rosebaugh-Nordan on August 11, 2013

      Haha, ten hours ago this was still five thousand down and look at it now! The metroidvania fans really pulled through and I think we're gonna get something special with this. Glad you made it, Andrew. I look forward to seeing Iya's story unfold.

    35. Creator Stephane on August 11, 2013

      Now take the time you need and make the best game you can make :)

    36. Creator Alfonso Bui on August 11, 2013
