So Long 2013, and Thanks for All the Tentacles...
Hello there, my dearest loonies! This is going to be an unusually short update because, let's face it, we all want to party right now and the least thing you need is a long-winded letter that you will either a) neglect altogether or b) completely forget after the fourth or fifth cocktail.
But, I would like to say a couple of things here, and no, I'm not going to be all sentimental and cloy — I think we're way past that. I do want to let you know, however, that we all at Senscape are extremely grateful for your support and having made 2013 one heck of a memorable year in our lives. This Kickstarter has been a milestone for our company and, while we couldn't give you Asylum this year, rest assured that thanks to you its development is continuing as smoothly as possible. No matter how awesome 2013 was, we're positive that 2014 is going to be even more groundbreaking, with a horror game that you won't ever forget and some surprises that we're planning for you.
In case you missed it, we recorded a short piece for the traditional Adventure Gamer's holiday greetings. The whole video includes many familiar faces and celebrities: Ken and Roberta Williams, Tim Schafer, Josh Mandel, Scott Murphy, Bob Bates, and so many others. I'm not sure what we're doing there, but hey, we were invited. Check out our appearance at the 7:24 mark to see how your support has greatly improved our professional situation. Be warned, though: it's rather bizarre.
Speaking of surprises, a bunch of depressing but oddly appealing screenshots have been making the rounds on the social networks. What is this thing? What is going on? Is this Asylum? Is it something else? Am I going bald? But I'm not here today to answer those questions. Actually, I can definitely tell you that it's not Asylum. We even have a hashtag: #NotAsylum.
Here's the thing: you will find out what this is very soon, and I can guarantee that you're going to love it. Most importantly, it hasn't impacted much on our Asylum schedule as it's more of a collaborative effort. Stay tuned... very tuned.
Well, that's it for now. I hope you have a great time today, and thanks again for being the most awesome backers in all the Kickstartersphere. I will be drinking in your names tonight — that's right, all 3169... one by one.
See you next year!
