  "When you came home from school that day, and you found him, the engine was still running, and the exhaust fumes were heavy in the air to the point of suffocation. Even though the garage door was closed, you instinctively opened it when you heard the rumble of the engine coming from the other side. Your father was dead."

Risks and challenges

The project is now in its second year of development and is pre-alpha. As with any project, inevitable risks can occur unexpectedly. One of the largest risks as most backers already know is deadline setbacks. While I feel as though I have set myself with a highly attainable launch deadline. There is no predicting the future and life happens. With that being said I plan to make every effort to achieve my backers expectations.
