Thank You!

Wow - what a ride! If you had asked us a week ago how our Kickstarter was going we would have said "well....Okay..." We could never have guessed what was about to happen. Our backers took to the internet, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Everywhere and made something amazing happen:

We can't thank all of you enough. Your pledges (pledge increases) and support have launched a dream. We are more confident and excited than ever about making truly interesting and unique games for you - our amazing friends. So:

We apologize for not getting this thank-you out sooner, but we decided to take a little time with our patient families who have basically had to live without us for a month :)

We also want to make special mention of Robert Bowling who went out of his way to mention and link to us even while he was launching a Kickstarter of his own. Please take a moment to checkout his campaign for The Adventures of Dash (Click Here)

We also have to make special mention of SamCube. He was an early believer in Race the Sun, and beyond lending his amazing talent to our project, he took it upon himself to promote our Kickstarter at every turn. Make sure to buy things from this man: SamCube http://wondercraft.net/

There are so many who helped along the way that we are sure to miss some (please message us if we do - we want to thank you!) but here are some of the amazing people who helped get the word out:

      Hi all, sorry my the slow response there!

      We will be using the Kickstarter survey system to ask about quotes, add-ons etc. You should see that tomorrow or Tuesday - just as soon as we we have all the questions set up correctly ;)

      Thanks for your patience!

      - Forest

      How are you dealing with quotes / contributions etc? There's nothing here about a survey, so will that information be requested on your website?

      really looking forward to this game!
      congratulations and thank you (and your families), too!

      Yes - thank you Mandy! And thank you:

      Megan Fox (yes that Megan Fox - of Glass Bottom Games). Checkout their game Jones on Fire: http://www.glassbottomgames.com/projects/jones-on-fire/

      CIGDA (Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/ColoradoIndieGames)

      And a big "I'M SORRY" to these guys! I mixed up the links to their Kickstarters here:

      Team Krinoid - They have a live Kickstarter here:
      http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1738566771/bunny-run

      Pixelscopic - They have a live kickstarter here:
      http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pixelscopic/delvers-drop

      Both of these guys (in true indie spirit) chose to help out our Kickstarter while they were running their own. They are very cool people!

      Can't wait to see the game. I also wanted to let you know that Megan Fox of Glass Bottom Games and Colorado Independent Game Developers Association (CIGDA) got the word out about your kickstarter in its final 11 hours :)

      Have fun developing!
