Stretch Goal Update!
Okay, we’re exhausted and exhilarated - like you! Time to stretch!
Wow! This is amazing! We’ve hit our base, we’re on our way to the first Stretch Goal, and we hope it’s not presumptuous to clear up the next Stretch Goal - An Additional World and something we’re calling Roadtrip Mode - at $1.7 million!
First lets talk about the Additional World. We’ll expand the content from hub plus three to hub plus four! We’ll be adding in a new world to explore. More ground to cover, more puzzles to solve, more story to reveal, more environment to bask in. Exciting!
The Roadtrip Mode needs a bit more explaining. As we’ve mentioned before, we’ve found that our previous games - in spite of the fact that they were single player - were usually played by more than one person. Many times it was a big advantage for two people to explore together in front of the computer, or share clues over the phone. We thought it would be fun to support that idea! Roadtrip Mode allows two people to share the exploration via the internet. One player would be the “driver” - moving and interacting, while the other player would be a “passenger” - following where the “driver” goes, but able to freely look around on their own computer. They will be able to talk with each other, offering advice or pointing out highlights. And the players can switch the “driver” and “passenger” whenever they want. It seems like a great way to facilitate something that happens naturally - and let players share the journey.
These are really rich stretch goals that expand the width and breadth of the Obduction experience. We can do it!!!!
