ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS

Hello Graywalkers! We’re now at the last hour of the campaign and it will be ending soon. Obviously we did not make our target but we did indeed give it a good run. We’ve reached close to half our original target despite all the difficulties and I personally think that it is an achievement in itself. We’ve learned a lot from this experience and from you, the community. 


I would also like to say Happy Thanksgiving to everybody. I don’t think everybody here celebrates it but nonetheless, I think today is definitely a day of giving thanks no matter where we are.

With that in mind, I would like to express my gratitude and thanks from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of you here. You took a chance on us, and we truly appreciate that. Personally, your comments, questions, appreciations and encouragements have helped me believe more in what we are doing. You have given us strength and resolve to move forward despite the difficulties that lie ahead. On our end, we will do our very best to ensure that the trust you have given us will not be in vain and that we will deliver on our promise. 

I would also like to thank all the studios who agreed to co-market with us. They have been helpful and we hope that we’ve helped them too in our own little way. We’ve made some friends and I’m hoping we can someday work with them again in the future in some manner.

I’d like to personally thank Entropy. Man, you are our guardian angel for this campaign. What you’ve done for us is too many to mention. Suffice to say, without you our campaign’s performance would have been terrible. We owe you big time.

To my team and to our interns, thank you all for the hard work you guys have poured into this campaign.

Lastly, thank you Lord for pretty much everything else.

FUTURE PLANS

Though we have just reached the end of a chapter, it is definitely not the end of the story. Now, we begin with the next chapter in developing Graywalkers Purgatory. We have several plans moving forward to ensure that we will have this game developed:

Continue Development: As we’ve been funding the game already through our own pockets and efforts, we plan to continue to do this. Obviously it will not be as fast as we would prefer but we are more inspired now to keep on creating more of the game because of all of you.

Relaunch Kickstarter: As many of you probably know already, we will be relaunching early next year. Our target date is February. We hope that all of you will be joining us for the relaunch. We will be keeping everybody in the loop via Updates. As we’ve promised everybody, you will all be getting the Veteran rewards when you pledge again in the next campaign. We will be informing everybody about registering on our website very soon so that we can take note of everybody who pledged here. We do have a copy of all your account names but we're not sure if it allows us to reach you guys except through an update. For the Relaunch, we definitely will have to be more prepared. We’re looking at more gameplay videos, screenshots, artworks and even a playable public demo. Our plan is to share the demo with you guys first and get feedback before releasing it to the public during the kickstarter.  We hope everybody here now will be at the re-launch within the first day. We will definitely be needing a big push at the start to ensure we make our goal next time. In the meantime, we will be monitoring the comments section and will be around if you guys have any questions. Also, please continue spreading the word about us. If you also know of press people, do let us know. 

Paypal Donations: We intend to accept paypal donations on our site. Though it is not yet ready, we are currently preparing it. The site will be offering donations with reward tiers almost similar to the ones on kickstarter. With us doing the kickstarter in February, that means we won’t get the funding till around April assuming we make it. We don’t want to wait that long to move faster. If we can raise a decent amount of funding through the site slowly, then we can also start improving the game now instead of later. If any of the Veterans are to pledge via Paypal, as long as we know it’s you, we will definitely honor our promise and include the Veteran package as additional rewards. Also, the packages on the site for Paypal might be a bit different, but if you are a Veteran, we will let you choose if you prefer the old “kickstarter rewards package” or the new packages. Non-Veterans will be limited to the new packages only. We will also be offering some of the physical and digital rewards as add-ons as well. We hope some of you believe in us already enough to trust us to pledge this early. Every dollar we make here will go a long way. 

Private Investors: We plan to offer Graywalkers to private investors especially now that we know what we have is something worth offering. If any of you or know of anybody who would be interested to invest in the project, please let us know. For those interested, you can reach me privately through russelltomas@dreamlordsdigital.com to discuss the matter more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So there we have it, our plans for the next 2 months. At this point, I would like to again request everybody to support the ff:

Your cooperation with regards to this will be greatly appreciated and will help us move further towards our goals. It will also allow us a chance to keep you guys constantly updated to what is happening with the project. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If there are any questions, you can contact us through any of the above links or you can email me directly at russelltomas@dreamlordsdigital.com.

Again, thank you very much and best wishes to all! Happy Thanksgiving!!! 


Sincerely yours,

Russell Tomas and the Graywalkers Team

      Yep, yep! Having everyone jump on board again at the relaunch, having that early lead, will go a long way to convincing others we're a sure bet and worth checking out! :D
