Update 26: WE ARE FUNDED!

Wow!

This is so incredibly surreal, you guys made it happen! The goal has been reached! It sounds almost crazy saying that, but here we are. All of us are staring at the screen right now with our collective jaws strewn across the floor. These last few days have been nothing short of amazing! The amount of support, page sharing, and generally incredible people we have seen from the very beginning has shown us how great our community has become. We cannot begin to thank you guys for everything you have done. Each and every one of you have helped us immensely, no matter how small your support. How does it feel to have succeeded everyone? On our side, we feel like we are floating on a cloud. 

This is where the hard work begins for us. You have all done your part, in fact most of you went above and beyond the call! For that we cannot do any less but make the best darn planet management god-game the world has ever seen! But we want you all to be with us every step of the way! From here on out, we are building this game together. That means you better stay in contact! The forums are a great place to do that at www.theuniversim.com/forums. We are going to set up the Private Backer Forums soon and ensure that everyone receives the correct badges. All gameplay stuff in regards to Community Labs and such will be open to all forum users though as to not exclude any of you fantastic people from having your say.


Where do we go from here? The first Alpha! The Prototype build, which we discussed in Update 17,  will be available within a month or so from now once we polish it up a bit. That will offer a small teaser of what is to come. We want to be able to show you guys the stuff you really want to see, so expect a couple of development videos to go up within a few months. Until that time, we will keep you all updated on what is happening. There are definitely going to be a few surprises! So keep that in mind if we are ever a little quiet about some or other aspect.

You guys have already done so much, but should we try and shoot for a few of those stretch goals? The last 2 days are coming up, we may even see many more faces springing up to help out.  

Let us know how you are feeling down below in the comments! I think I need a good glass of Ice Tea for the nerves.  

You know we can never thank you all enough, but really and truly THANK YOU!

      I don't know why but in the past year or so I've been getting really excited about anything dinosaur related. I'm really happy we reached the original goal because this seems like a really cool game but I will be somewhat disappointed if we don't reach $400,000. Because dinosaurs are awesome.

      Grats on the success so far. I hope you come up with Kickstarter updates after the successful campaign. I have supported so many games, it's difficult to stay in contact through every single forum. I know that every dev wants his forums filled with ideas and life in general but I feel left out in so many game projects because I don't have time to join their forums and check for each and every post and update they publish in the forums. Thank you in advance. :-)

      Yay! The gaming industry has been repeatedly letting me down these past few years and so it's even more important that a game like this - that is genuine, original, and interesting - get's a real shot. It's been a long while since I've been this excited about a game :)

    10. Kelly Winward on May 21, 2014

      Congrats Mr.Koshelkov and team Crytivo, i can't wait to play the aplha. I first backed for thirty dollars and went to one hundred dollar pledge i am very exited to see the finished product.

      Great news! I can't wait to play this.

    16. Phillip R E Fisher Jr. on May 21, 2014

      That's so great I'm happy that such an awesome concept is now going to be made a reality and I got to be a small part of it. I really want to get started with the forums but before I create an account how will you be able to tell who funded on here vs those who have created an account on the forums? I just wanna make sure if I go ahead and make my preferred username that I won't have to create a whole other account later to get my badge and access to the locked forums for backers.

    17. Matthew Marsee on May 21, 2014

      SO excited and happy you guys got funded! Can't wait for the game! It's going to be awesome! HUGE congrats!

      Excellent ! Congrats all !

      Now let's catch some stretch goals !
      I want these dinosaurs so badly ^^

    27. Dukermons on May 21, 2014

      "Let us know how you're feeling down below..."

      Well now, I think how ny "down below" is feeling is none of your business!

      Although it's a bit tingly hearing you made the goal. Great work, but maybe less enquiries into the status of your backers' genitals next time...

      :D

    28. Andrew D Morgan on May 21, 2014

      Congratulations to the whole Crytivo team! I became excited for this game the moment I saw it and I'm so scythed that it's becoming a reality!

      First, CONGRATS! Im so happy the goal is reached! but a little question: you said ou will release an alpha in a month or so, is that the build 30$ backers will have access to?

      Kickstarter backers always amaze me.
      You think it's not going to happen.
      It's important to stay positive and have hope and look at what you can achieve. Congratulations to everyone one involved.
      It's great to see so many passionate people about this game.

      Frank Kowalewicz on May 21, 2014

      Great news! Congratulations!

      Based on the concepts/design we've seen, this can be an incredible game.

      Just a word of advice: Keep it at an E-rating or T-rating at most for a large potential customer base. I can see this as a game people 8 years old and up would play (religiously).

      Still have three days to meet stretch goals...

    35. amigacooke on May 21, 2014

      "All of us are staring at the screen right now with our collective jaws strewn across the floor."

      That's got to be messy!
      Congratulations and hope development goes as you (and we) would wish.

      BEST news. This makes me incredibly happy. Congratulations guys!

    44. Stephen Boyd on May 21, 2014

      GREAT WORK everyone. It was scary at times but we made it. After such a wonderful first few days of the campaign it appeared as if you were going to smash every stretch goal. Then it started getting a bit scary. I am so glad for the team that you finally made it.

      NOW GET CODING!

    45. Shaun Curtis on May 21, 2014
