We already managed to finish so much in the span of 6 months and if everything goes well, we will be able to release it on time. (We're all doing our best to meet our deadline!)

So why Crowdfund?

Firstly, we would like to let everyone know that Cinderella Phenomenon is set to be released as a FREE game. This will be available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. With that in mind, we're sure you are wondering why we are doing this fundraiser. Well, we have spent a good deal of pocket money on various game components, including but not limited to background art, theme song composition and video editing. We are not being directly compensated for this, which is why we are now trying our best to regain these funds so that we may use them for our future projects. After this game, our next aim will be to officially go commercial, and we would like to create a quality game that everyone can enjoy.

For these purposes, we are looking at a fund of £1900 (Approximately 2500 USD.) This already includes reward productions and necessary kickstarter fees.

You can see the breakdown of the expenses in our pie chart below, (It's a pumpkin pie by the way :D)

  The background has the largest portion, and if you look at the samples, you'll understand why.

We hired a talented composer to create our theme song, and we're lucky that Yoru Sagara was kind enough to sing it for free. We also hired a video editor to create a commercial-quality opening song for the game. Our BGMs were bought on royalty-free websites.

As you can see, we will not be paying ourselves for our work because we have insufficient funding. (In addition, though all of us may be passionate enough to pay from our pocket and work on this for free, we would very much appreciate any additional money that will help us with our taxing real-life responsibilities!)

The group was formed in mid-2014 with Kooriiko and Sitraxis as its founding members. Soon after, their first otome game, Locked Heart was released which can be played for free. Tajina and Jessica Rose became permanent members during the early production stage of Cinderella Phenomenon. Now, the team is currently on a never-ending and masochistic journey to create even more engaging games.

Risks and challenges

Regardless of whether or not we get funded, we still aim to release the game on our projected deadline. The biggest downside to not being funded is that our next game will be slower to release, with the funds needing to once again be paid out of pocket.
