Kickstarter Redux Update

Posted by Breeze Grigas

Hey there robot fans!

This is Zephyr Workshop, developers of A.E.G.I.S. again, delivering you some news, good and bad.

The bad news is we're not launching the Kickstarter today. We're very sorry about that! If you read our last update, you know that today was supposed to be the relaunch date for everyone's favorite new robot game, among other status updates with the project.

The good news is that we're not launching it today because we've received some new manufacturer numbers and feedback from fans, consultants, other successful Kickstarter campaign-runners, and we believe we'll be able to run a much better campaign because of it, with a potentially lower price point/KS goal. 

Our currently planned campaign would very likely succeed, but we're going to 100% make sure we're attacking it right this time. 

Our new Kickstarter is now scheduled for May 9th.

3 weeks?! What?!

We picked this date strategically, fret not. We'll be using the time to: 

  • Refactor some of our page with the new tiers and goals
  • Schedule local demo days during the campaign
  • Get some more reviews and press prepared
  • Also, the date is at a nice spot where it won't be competing with other huge KS campaigns. 
  • It's also more time for you folks to spread the word!

We're really optimistic with where we're at right now. It's gonna be awesome.

We're doing our weekly livestream tomorrow night at 7:30pm EST - if you have any questions or comments you want to ping us with directly, we'd love to hear from you. 

Thank you guys very much for your patience!! 

Misc Updates

For the last few weeks, it's all been Kickstarter prep. The video, new board art, new footage and etc are all done or are in polish-mode. We're there. Graphics and templates for the page and ads and social media are good to go. We ran demos and chatted with fans at Granite Game Summit last weekend, and have been moving boxes around from reviewer to reviewer. Busy busy! Now we just gotta get there, and we will, with your help.

Fight and Unite

PS: We will likely be making another Backers Only update to weigh some opinions on the new tier structure from previous backers, so stay tuned for that.
