Tiny Wastelands

Hi.

You'll have to forgive me, as I am writing this update after a restless night. I find myself having to put on my business "hat", and wear it in a time where I wish I didn't have to.

On Thursday we lost the heart and soul of our Nocturnal family, as our founder, and my mentor and friend Stewart Wieck passed away.

You can read the statement from his brother Steve HERE

As Gallant Knight Games is fully owned by Nocturnal Media (we're an imprint), we're going to be canceling this project. 

I can't take money from backers not knowing what the future holds. It will take time process the impact this has, both on a business level, but more importantly on a personal level. 

I realize this is disappointing for everyone, but as I would not be operating at a level I feel you deserve, I think this is best. Please understand this was not an easy decision to make, but I feel very strongly that it is the right one. 

Once we have a greater understanding of our path forward, we can return to Kickstarter with Tiny Wastelands

      I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you for clearly communicating a difficult decision in a difficult time.
      When you return to making of the games, we'll be here to back your future projects. Take care, and all the time you need.

      I was shocked to hear about Stewart's passing. My condolences go out to you, his family, and the community as a whole. Whenever the Tiny Wastelands makes it way back, I will certainly pledge again.

      I heard through other channels, and posted my condolences over at the talislanta ks... and I figured you'd be making similar post here.

      A) my condolences to you, and the rest of your team. Take care of you and your family (and extended family).

      B) when tiny wastelands, or any of the other tiny rpgs are ready to come back, let us all know. I want to back this, and will b me waiting.

      So sorry for your loss, Alan. I hope for the best for the company, and will keep an eye out for a future relaunch (circumstances permitting)

      Alan, condolences on your loss and fully understandable that you'd cancel this project until further notice. Without wanting to be disrespectful though, what does this mean for GKG's other, already funded, kickstarter Cold Shadows? Will we be getting an update there too?
