So I write these off-the-cuff feelings with about 25 hours to go...
I'm filled with such a range of emotions:
-Sadness like saying goodbye to a friend,
-Relief to take a break from a stressful 30 days,
-Extreme gratitude for the friends I've met and the support I have received,
-Hopefulness for the relaunch in 6 weeks or so
-Remorse that I've let you all down
There are so many things that I did not do well with regards to this, our first Kickstarter campaign, but I have learned a lot. When we relaunch, I promise we will have daily updates without fail and much more to show you of the game as its development progresses. You will see better graphics on our KS page and a generally more polished look.
We've also decided that a straight up 2D game is more in keeping with both the tradition of the visual novel/adventure genre and also more of what you all want, Please come to our website blackmoresbane.com for a poll soon on that very issue.
Anyway, this final update (for the time being) is to assure you that we WILL BE MAKING THIS GAME. Dreams do NOT die so easily and I have never been one to give up. So rest assured you will see this game come together but that doesn't mean I do not need your support because I do, oh, I do. Together, WE will make this game. Stay with us, follow our Facebook page, our IQIOI.COM website, our Blackmoresbane.com website, our Twitter feed and share your thoughts with us -we are so happy to hear from you.
Finally, once again, my heartfelt thanks and deepest gratitude for taking the time, pledging your hard-earned money and support and for believing in my dream which is now OUR dream.
We WILL see you soon for the relaunch of Blackmore's Bane! And now, I will happily take off this KS hat and put on my developer's hat, roll up my sleeves and get to work! Until then!
