First of all I want to say how very sorry I am that it took so long. I want to apologize to every one of you from the bottom of my heart about the endless delays and issues we’ve had and also of not always communicating as much, as often or as well as some of you wanted. This has truly been a cursed project, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. often several times over, having it all over is such a relief.
However, some good things have happened because of it, I had to realize that I could not go it alone, and so now we have ramped up to a full time staff of 3 here in Tbilisi, which has proven to be a great decision in terms of both DEMOCRACY and our other projects, I AM ZOMBIE and the XENOFACTOR line.
To all those of you who have been so amazingly supportive throughout the entire process, I just want to give you a big heartfelt thank you, you've been absolutely fantastic and your support has made dealing with this mess so much easier. Other of you were less than pleased, and I do understand where you are coming from and I want you to know how very sorry I am it came to this. Please understand that I did my very best considering the circumstances, and that now that you are getting your games, I hope we can all move on.
If you see me at a convention come say hi, I owe you a thanks for getting me back into games, where I belong. I thoroughly hope that you'll enjoy opening your packages despite the circumstances of us getting it to you and I cannot thank you enough for enabling me to do the project. You’re going to love this game (if you don’t burn it first... ;D).
yours, Mark Rein-Hagen
