2 likes

Dear Backers,

you did it! Once again the Kickstarter community makes a great game happen: DieselStörmers is funded!

We feel honored to have you by our side and we are so f**king happy!!

As a small additional thank you we will add a folded Dieselstörmers poster to each tier with a physical shipment. This will be a new poster to be created and it will be just cool! If you are a backer and have the chance to drop by at the studio or at GamesCom you can get an unfolded one!

Now coming to a stretch goal:

You supported us, spread the word, stayed awake nights to push the campaign. Now we are willing to do this for you! Crunch like hell, stay the weekends, consume more coffee and Red Bull than Hulk Hogan to make THIS happen:

STRETCH GOAL 55.000 USD EARLY ACCESS RELEASE IN JULY 2014

Are you ready för this?

We have new things to show you - we’re taking a closer look at the dwellers of the oil rig city of Ravensdale. Here are two close-ups of the hero and a goblin doing insane parkour.

We’ve also included some new fun for all our Giana Sisters players. 

We are very pleased to release a small DieselStormers-themed teaser level where Giana Sisters run and dash against the gritty backdrop of the DieselStormers world. This new level can be found in the Extras menu of both games: Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams and Rise of the Owlverlord!

DIESELSTÖRMERS - Let's Play and New Tier

5 likes

Dear Backers,

our first campaign-week was quite successful. 17k already that is a third of the goal. Well done!

As a small thanks we want to share with you the material we showed on the Games Developers Conference in San Francisco. The only thing we added is some new sound by courtesy of our friends from Metusa, medieval rockers from the south of Germany (www.metusa.de).

This is not a polished official trailer, this is just some BFG Rock'n'Roll material Vladimir put together on a bustour in San Francisco,

ENJOY!

Beside this we added a new reward-tier above USD 200 as we've been asked. Check it out!

Have a great weekend and spread the word!
