That was… unexpected

65.000 dollars in no more than 30 hours?! Are you nuts?!

Thanks to our character artist and cartoonist Marvin for the unexpected night shift ;-)

Many many thanks from the whole team for the support of all you backers!

Here’s what Nate and Wilbur have to say about this:

One step done, three more to go

Thanks to your support all the different great rewards will be available and we can use the cool "projection mapping" technique for all locations in the game, that enables us to move the camera through scenes more dynamically!

With this we've got one goal in the bag and three more in front of us:

Please continue supporting us

  • Please tell your friends and relatives about the project!
  • Post and participate in discussions about our Kickstarter in forums, etc.
  • Please help us spreading updates by "liking & sharing" them!

A very unusual, but also very cool looking RPG:

      Can we have the plushie/puppet as add-on? 160 + 20 shipping is a bit :-O ...

      @KING Art Games : sweet, thanks for the answer. Definitely looking forward to this one. Please don't go the puzzle-less "click twice on everything and the game solves itself" route of The Raven ! Pudalup.

      That video is absolute gold! :)

      "we'll become meglomaniacs and spend the people's money on complete nonsense" and
      "We'll turn it into a musical sung by...otters!"
      LMAO! Oh, Wilbur. It's been too long.

      Loved the shoutout from Double Fine with their latest kickstarter update. Nice of them to do that. :)

      But yeah, BoUT2 is going to be funny. :)

      To be honest as someone listening to midi and C64 Sid tunes I am not too much into orchestra.
      But I really love the idea of having sidequests!
      I was already disappointed by Day of the Tentacle as they didn't have multiple paths anymore as Maniac Manison 1 did.
      Having multiple options to solve a puzzle and some optional puzzles would be really cool!

      @Yves: Yes, we're writing the game in German and it's translated to English by a team of experts. So both versions will have great writing and voice acting.

      Congrats! But honestly... you guys were asking for only $65k and after the Kronos kickstarter and BoUT and Critter Chronicles games... I am not sure how you did not expect to meet the goal in one day. :p

      Grog, grog, grog! (Oh, and someone tie Nate down to a chair, tied to a post nailed to the floor and chain his hands and feet to the wall, so he doesn't run away with the treausure of Monkey...I mean, of Kickstarter pledges!)

      Awesome. Book of Unwritten Tales had soul (and even some good puzzles) and I hope the sequel will be worth it - I was highly disappointed by The Raven which I felt had neither.
      Question though, since the video above is in english : is the primary language of the game still German ? I felt the german writing was quite good.
