It’s official: we did it! Thank you! We’ve cut through the red tape of Kickstarter and now have the funds to produce Far Away. With very little internal bureaucracy (besides the fictional Federation Alliance we’re writing), we can use the funds to make a wonderful experience anchored by community feedback.
Surveys will be released soon. Keep an eye out, especially if you backed at a content-addition level. You’ll be asked for your address; you can change that at any time (we’ll send updates out reminding you of deadlines).
Over the next couple months, we’ll improve the print-and-play demo and give backers access to the files. We encourage everyone to look at the missions we’re designing, the creatures we’re creating, and the beautiful biomes we’re painting. This is your game. We want your input as we drive to production.
In the same vein, CPG values transparency. We want to share our progress with everyone. To that effect, we’ll keep the community informed for budgeting decisions and production timelines. Expect a monthly update on Kickstarter and more frequent statuses on Facebook and Twitter. We are aiming for an October release. Of course, CPG is a two-person company dealing with overseas manufacturing. If we hit a snag, we’ll let everyone know and do our best to mitigate any problems.
Thanks again everyone. We’re going to build some awesome worlds for you to discover.
