Kickstarter campaign is canceled, FDG Entertainment joins the adventure!
Hi beautiful backers,
During the past few weeks many things happened behind the scenes and now we are glad to officially announce our future plans for Flying Hamster II.
While we were working hard on a relaunch of this Kickstarter campaign with a new approach and lots of improvements, we had the chance to discuss with FDG Entertainment's Thomas Kern about a possible collaboration on Flying Hamster II. We finally agreed to put our efforts together and make the game happen without rebooting our campaign.
We are really thrilled that we can go on production earlier than we could ever expect, thanks to the help of FDG Entertainment, and without changing anything from what we initially planned to make. We even think that being published by FDG Entertainment will drastically raise the overall quality of the game as we are now able to focus on its development and get their experienced feedback and support.
Now here’s a quote from FDG Entertainment’s co-founder Thomas Kern:
“FDG Entertainment is an indie game publishing company with a focus of high quality, fun to play games. We've been following Game Atelier's impressive quality productions since the release of Flying Hamster and loved their talent and passion which made their games clearly stand out from the crowd. We've been excited about the Kickstarter Project of 'Flying Hamster II'. Being gamers from heart since the early days, we couldn't do anything but fall in love with the game. We are convinced that this kind of game is what people are still looking for these days, so we jumped in to make sure this game is going to happen and fill us all with joy. We are excited to cooperate with Game Atelier in order to make the game become a reality and warp us back into the days of exciting 2D action adventures with the sensation of exploration and wonder.”
And here’s what’s gonna happen next:
- Yes, Flying Hamster II will be released on Steam for PC Windows once we finish the development, other ports will follow later.
- Flying Hamster II won’t be downgraded or turned into any kind of freemium game: it will remain a full downloadable premium game.
But wait, there’s more...
