Revised Stretch Goals
Hey everyone! Nayan here with the update you've all been waiting for. That's right! We're talking revised stretch goals. We appreciate all the comments we get every day about how we can improve the Kickstarter. Your assistance in this campaign has been invaluable.
We’re here today to ask everyone’s opinion on our stretch goals. Specifically, as this is our first attempt at a Kickstarter fundraising event, we were most afraid of not reaching our funding goal, and we lowered our estimates in order to try and avoid that outcome. The problem is that that was reflected in our stretch goals.
Once we got our Kickstarter campaign started, we got together at a development meeting to decide on and implement our plans for the game, and have also been discussing with interested parties who are willing to help with the porting process and other parts of the project. This is where we decided to review our resources so that we could come up with more realistic goals that we would be able to provide with the means available to us, while maintaining the same level of quality that our fans have come to expect from us. We came up with our new stretch goals based on this.
$230,000 Father's Diary
$300,000 Additional Evil Stage
$350,000 Stories for each character
$400,000 Mac/Linux ports
$???,??? Wider Localization
$???,??? Home Console Versions 1
$???,??? Handheld Versions
$???,??? Home Console Versions 2
$???,??? Original La-Mulana
$???,??? LA-MULANA2 MOD Tools
What do you think? We want to create a project on Kickstarter that will realize all of the demands we have received from you, our fans. Regarding character switching, we plan on implementing this feature as a collection of ideas that can be explored in each character’s individual story. This allows us to revise our resources and where we can allocate the overall budget. And don’t worry about the Hell Temple. We’ve already stated that LA-MULANA 2 will be similar in scope to its predecessor. In other words, this has already been included in our plans. What is dependent on a stretch goal is the additional Evil Stage, which will be even more challenging and nefarious!
Regarding the goals from Wider Localization and below, we are hiding the funding amounts for the moment as we have received a variety of offers from interested parties and are currently negotiating with them to rework the estimates.
Although we can’t fulfil every demand, we’re trying to respond to as many voices as we can. We’re sorry for how clumsily we've handled the stretch goal revision.
We’d sincerely appreciate any frank feedback you may have.
Thanks again for all your support, and we can't wait to hear what you have to say.
