We have decided to re-launch but we’ll be back soon!

Dear Backers!  

We have evaluated and revised our Campaign thoroughly, taking your feedback and suggestions into consideration and we have decided to re-launch the Cultistorm Campaign. We are going to restructure the project, we’ll have new pledge levels, and the language packs will be available right from the start of our campaign. We will correct our mistakes and missteps to return with a much better Campaign and a much more attractive offer.

We would like to thank everyone who supported us and believed in us! We are very proud of you all, because it’s a great number. As a First Creator, getting nearly 1700 backers and 200.000. USD in the first few days is a great honour and we are very grateful for your trust and support. Thank you very much for your kind words, the recognition and we also thank you for all the constructive criticism which helped us realize our mistakes.

It was good to see that so many people supported our open and transparent campaign strategy. You understood our motivation and you remained loyal to us even with our high funding goals. It was good to see that the content and the concept of Cultistorm received such a big support and trust starting from the first minute. 

We believe that Cultistorm in its entirety is a truly unique and special board game project and it is very encouraging for us to see, that based on your feedback, you feel the same.

There are some basic principles and values that we will keep following even in the future as they are part of the identity of Purple Meeple Games. However, the current structure and concept of our campaign was flawed, and we already know how to make it much better.  You could see that we have always been honest and straightforward in our communication. Therefore, we don’t shy away from admitting our mistakes and shortcomings. We have learned a great deal from this first attempt and we believe that we can return with a more improved and better campaign. Looking at some classified data and not public details we firmly believe that there are still considerable potential left in the Cultistorm project, so if we continued working hard in the next thirty days we would probably manage to reach our funding goal, however we know that this is not enough either for us or for you. Our countless hours of work and faith in Cultistorm, the hidden potential of the project and most importantly, your support and trust deserve much more than what we could achieve with this current campaign. We didn’t create all the content: expansion modules, extras, etc. not to be able to give it to you. For us the All-in pledge truly means an ALL-IN. We want to give you all the extra content. However, this current campaign system wasn’t the best for this purpose. That is why we will return with a better system and new pledge levels, where you don’t have to buy things you don’t need and you can have everything you wish for. We will deliver high quality language packs (regardless of the backer number), differentiated shipping costs, and clear deals for our retailers.

We would ask you for your continued support, do not discard your pledge so that we can communicate with you even after this current campaign stops. We would like to send you constant updates about our preparations and pre-launch details. Stay with us brave investigators so that when the moment comes, we can once again ask for your support.

Thank you very much.

As a “temporary goodbye”, here is the video of Undead Viking we have received today:

      It's a tough decision to make, but it shows that you guys want to deliver the best product you can create, so all my respects. I'll be back for the relaunch!

      We believe in you guys; your game looked awesome already at SpieleMesse Essen 2018.
      I can wait a bit longer.

      + 1 preview campaign page.

    6. Daniel Ebeck on

      Preview is definitely a good idea. I look forward to it!

      My wallet is relieved this project got canceled (for now) ;-)
      But on a serious note, you made the right call, which I'm sure wasn't an easy decision.
      I'll be eagerly awaiting the re-launch and will support this project again.
      Please make sure to send out an update and perhaps a preview of the campaign page a few weeks before the re-launch. It usually helps if the community can take a look at the campaign page prior to launch and point out typos, missing information or provide feedback in general.

      Great decision. I'll be back!

      Almost teared up a little there. I'll be waiting patiently for this great product to come back even stronger.

      You've certainly made a very wise decision. I'm excited for the relaunch and will be there to back it from the start!

      Thanks, for all your hard work and making the tough decisions when needed. You've been nothing but transparent, brave and perseverant. The decision to cancel is unfortunate (and always something creators should have autonomy over and not be coerced to do) but I am glad to hear that you will be relaunching. Cultistorm is too creative a game experience not to publish and you betcha I'll be there to back you up in whatever form or capacity. See you soon! Happy holidays and a Cultistorm of a New Year!

      So? Should I do something? From what I see here, the campaign is still going.... ?.?

      @Brad
      You will not be charged.

    19. Brad McLeod on

      This was my second kickstart,so please forgive the dumb guy.

      Does this mean nothing is happeneing with this? Is money still being xfered when the time is up? Is the project “cancelled” for lack of a better term?

      I’d still support when you re-launch, I was totally excited for this.

      News that I very much wanted to hear. I want this game and everything it has to offer, anything less would have disappointed me. Congrats on a good decision. We shall see you again soon and get this project off the ground and to the lofty heights it deserves.

      I congratulate you on your decision. Plan in quietness and come back strengthened. I am waiting for you and for a great game

    28. Mike Walsh on

      If you don't learn from your mistakes, you're destined to repeat them. As hard as it must be, I'm glad you have learnt from this and I'm 100% positive the relaunch will be a very successful one.

      I very much look forward to the relaunch and will certainly back it.
