Looking Back Already, And Looking Forward

Reflections

What an exciting couple of weeks we've been having. We've been telling a couple of journalists, that didn't believe us, that we had no idea if this campaign would even reach its goal. "Oh come on," they said. "You're just in it for the stretchgoals. Everyone takes half of what they actually want as a funding goal!"

Well we didn't. We were really amazed to reach our goal so fast, and happy to reach our first stretchgoal.

The success of this Kickstarter does give us a morale boost. It tells us that we're making something that people are looking forward to, and are supportive of.

In his blog, Swen looks back on the past couple of weeks of running a Kickstarter campaign, and what we have learned from this.

A Kickstarter's Anthology

Thomas also made a digest of all the things we've done in the last 3 weeks. An amazing trip in video format that made all of us smile.

So here is a compilation. A collection if you will. Our greatest hits. Our best of. Our gold records. I'm taking this analogy too far so here's the video.

GamersDissent

Etalyx from GamersDissent has posted his longest video yet. That's what happens when you get to preview an RPG!

We have been playing together with a couple of people this week, and it is already lots of fun to play this with someone that hasn't seen the game yet.

If you haven't seen it yet and you have an hour to spare, give this playthrough a look, or a listen, that works too. You'll hear that we were genuinely having fun.

Live Stream On PCGames.de

We're going into overdrive next week. Well actually, it already starts tonight. We're doing online coop playthroughs with Youtube channels, independent journalists, and magazines, such as Games.on.net, Kotaku, RedPandaGamer, Jesse Cox, Quill18, DenOfGeek, TotalBiscuit, Gamer.no, Jeuxvideo.com, Angry Joe, Gamespot, GMBox, Kanobu...

We will announce when they're online and here's the first announcement:

We will be playing live with PCGames.de this coming Monday at 17:30 (GMT+1 with daylight saving) so that's:

  • 19:30 in Moscow
  • 17:30 in Berlin
  • 16:30 in London
  • 11:30 in New York
  • 8:30 in Los Angeles

Kirill's Concert On Youtube

We know some of you are waiting for the recording of Kirill's concert on Youtube. It's coming. We will post the full edit with high quality video material next week. We want to thank everyone that watched the live stream on our twitch.tv channel. If you missed it, and you cannot wait for the Youtube version, it's still available here.

In Closing

An update about reflections. But also of what is to come. We'll probably have to stay up all night... Stay tuned :)

      We need a million. I believe those 3 stretch goals would add SO much to the game.

      I this game is everything you hope it would be. I'm pretty happy just from the production shots etc. Hopefully you can increase your market value and bump up your budgets for your next production run.

WELL FINAL-FUCKING-LY!

      I hope it helps, I'm crying because of the bad luck of this campaign. You guys are great! You and WE deserve all the amazing stretch goals.

      I hope those youtubers will send their fanboy armies to the rescue.

      Best luck my loves:*

      I wanted to use the newly released Black Sabbath song, but young Thomas told me we would score with Daft Punk.

      Thank him. Not me.

      haha we are in sync..I swear i had the EXACT same song in my head the whole day after hearing it this morning..and now you put it in an update ^^

    11. Olin on

      Here's my very important question. Is that update song going to be on the game's soundtrack? Please say yes 'cause I love that freaking ear worm of a song.

    12. Al on

      I didn't plan on watching the full 1 hr play through but it looks so fun I couldn't stop watching!

    13. Taragon on

      Fluff dragons are terrible to behold

    14. twinchenzo - Weresheep of Original Sin on

      We need that live Update Song track. It was so awesome.

    15. Bert Geens on

      WoOS!

      Need to whip more people into pledging, hmm. Maybe if I combine this weresheep with a dragon... Fluffy weredragon? That should scare some people!

    16. DarthDavy on

      Let's hope you guys Get Lucky...
      Let's go for the final stretch. The weresheep (well, this one at least) are ready!
      Gooooooo stretch goals!

      A Daft Punk track? My confidence in you guys is (even more)justified.

    18. Larian Studios LLC 2-time creator on

      I changed it to GMT+1 with daylight saving time... So it's at 17.30.

      Germany is currently on CEST (Central European Summer Time, GMT+2).
      So 17:30 (GMT+1) would mean 18:30 in Berlin. Or you meant GMT+2 from the get go.

    21. Whoosher on

      A comment / question regarding the time of the playthrough on monday. You write 17:30 GMT +1 and the same time for Berlin. Because of the summertime Berlin is currently is GMT +2. Just a mistake or is the time wrong?

    22. The Exalted and Venerated Timeraider on

      I hoped the playing with famous people would be a bit earlier so that it would boost the kickstarter even more.. but well. publicity is publicity so it will be great anyway and i cant wait to see the videos.

    23. Jhonrock on

      Assuming that the next stretch goals are not achieved, can those features be implemented in the game through downloadable patches in the future (after release)? It will be really sad if this features never appear in the game.

    24. Sune - Pinkish Weresheep of Sin on

      My respect just skyrocketed when you close up an update with Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers.
