Dear original backers of Days of Dawn.

We've had an awesome start with our new campaign on http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bumblebee/days-of-dawn-discover-the-magic – we reached 22% of the goal in just 24 hours. We're so much closer to the goal now!

Many of you have come back to support us once again; to those who did not we'd love to say: We miss you! Please consider having a look at our new campaign. We made some of the pledges much more attractive (and added a beautiful new chart to compare them), we will come up with new content soon and will be presenting AddOns tonight, to make pledging even more flexible.

We'd be so happy to see you come back!

Thank you and all the best,
Tassilo

Dear friends.

We're so very excited to tell you that the revised kickstarter-campaign of Days of Dawn just received green light from kickstarter! 

We will be back at midnight from saturday to sunday CET

That is in other time zones

  • Saturday, 3PM PST
  • Saturday, 7PM EST
  • Saturday, 11PM GMT

You'll find us on http://kickstart.daysofdawn.com/ when the time has come and of course here on kickstarter directly. We'll send out another update when we're live.

I have to repeat myself here: It's crucial to the success of our funding that we'll have a great start. So I would like to ask all of you to join us as soon as possible to have an outstanding kickstart.

Thank you so very much for being here with us. Thank you for being a part of Days of Dawn!

See you on saturday/sunday!
Tassilo


Update #25

Days of Dawn is alive and kick(start)ing

Dear friends.

We promised you to come back – and we're very happy to tell you that the time has come. We just received clearance from amazon last night and are now awaiting kickstarter-approval, which should take another two to three days. We hope to be online by friday, monday at the latest.

We spent a lot of time improving our campaign: updated pledges, an improved, much shorter video and an overall enhanced campaign layout including tier-graphics. By making some features (platforms, languages and small part of the content) stretchgoals, we also managed to lower the goal to almost half the initial one; you'll be able to decide what shall be found in the game – and what not.

Besides the updates mentioned above, there's two thing we need to achieve to be successful this time:

  • If you're going to be with us again, please join in as soon as possible. A good start is crucial to a successful kickstarter.
  • We need to reach a wider audience. As we're learned that most of our backers have been existing kickstarter-users, it might be helpful if you could tell other kickstarter-users (especially games-backers) about Days of Dawn – of course all other channels (Facebook, twitter, blogs and mail) are very helpful as well. We'll also be providing banners, buttons and avatars in our boards (see below).

I'd like to thank you for your outstanding support in our first run. We're very confident that it will be an easy one this time with many of our friends having confirmed their return already; some have been saving up to be able to support the game even more. We're stunned by such backing and very, very happy that you love Days of Dawn as much as we do.

Last but not least I'd like to invite you to join our boards on http://board.bumblebee-games.com, where we'll discuss the ongoings of the funding and the game's development process.

Thank you so much, everybody, and see you very soon! I'll send another update as soon as we're going live.
Tassilo & the Bumblebees.
