Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more


Greetings and salutations dear backers,

first of all, thank you all kindly for your feedback to our question of relaunching the kickstarter and the great support you have shown as well as the advice you gave us.

The team has discussed our options and we decided, the best route to go would be producing a demo of the game with a little more gameplay meat to it, which we can use for publishers as well as a second funding attempt for an Early Access version.

This will probably be done sometime in late November and we will of course keep you posted on our progress in this as well as in our talks with publishers.

Until we have that, we won't begin another campaign (and it is getting very close to Halloween and Christmas, which means money may be scarcer for some), but we hope to be able to welcome all of you again when we do (and we will also have a bit more lead-in time then to build up momentum).

We will continue to post updates in here as well of course, but please follow our Facebook and Twitter pages to keep up to date.

The team is filled with energy and all of your kind words have fuelled that energy towards believing there must be a place out there for Backdrop, so we are looking forward to where the journey may lead us.

We will close the Kickstarter tonight and see all of you (or as many as possible) on the other side!

The Backdrop Team

      I'd support a playable demo here. Especially if there was a way to tag that to a special pledge level in the full launch. Good luck and keep the status updates going to build the interest.

      Looking forward to the demo and to the next campaign too.
      A good call I think.

      Try again with more PR and I am sure you will get funded next time.
