Posted by Maxwell Jensen (Creator)

When I was young, I loved to draw mazes on paper. Scattered throughout the little graphite and ball-point pen constructed hallways were scary monsters, magical weapons and helpful tools (say, if you found the hammer, you could create a shortcut by erasing a section of the 'wall', kinda thing).

Whatever neural pathways were forged into my small, developing brain by this manner of thinking... Have clearly not changed. In fact, they've become a leading source of inspiration in the pursuit of my own creativity, as well as my everyday life.

Over a year ago I began work on what is now Crystal Catacombs. An ambitious project that is a direct result of my passion for exploring creativity, the video games I've come to love and the art of creating something real from a single idea.

Now, over 800 people from all over the world have come together to support Crystal Catacombs. I can't really express my gratitude for how much you've helped out... but I can say thank you. Thank you so much for helping to create this game. I am REALLY excited to share this with all of you.

I believe that when you truly fall in love with an idea, run with it - YOU have proven this.

Thank you

      I had participated in the first attempt of the Crystal Catacombs, and was very sad when failed to achieve the goal. But now the game had a second chance, congratulations! Weeeee :)

      You're an inspiration, really! ^^ I used to make little 'paper platforming' levels with my friends back in elementary school too. xD Thought we were the only ones who did it, and most ppl didn't seem to understand, but yay imagination. In any case, you're awesome, keep up the great work!!
