It's a good bye for now

7 likes

Hey guys. This won't take many of you by surprise, but we think it's safe to assume we won't be reaching the funding goal in the remaining 6 days...

We have learned A LOT from this. We have made mistakes, of course, and we know we can do it better and come back stronger than ever. Perhaps we put too much trust in our product and underestimated the importance of better advertising, of having good contacts, and whatnot.

We are cancelling the campaign today. We will keep working on Xenocider, on alternative ways of making it happen, because we love our project and are deeply proud of what we were (and still are) intending to create.

Those of you who were fans or followers of Retro Sumus already know we like keeping you guys informed of what we're up to. We have no plans of changing that. This is only a good bye for now. We will be back, and we will be better.

Above all, THANK YOU. We deeply appreciate every single one of your pledges, comments, messages, tweets and suggestions. The Dreamcast scene is still amazing, and exciting, and we are proud to be a part of it. And we would like to thank every backer, journalist and developer who gave us a hand. You all know who you are :)

Thank you SO MUCH for your support.

Dream on.

      This is a very sad time for the dreamcast community. I'll still follow this project and back it when the time comes. It's was my most anticipated title.

      @ Casey Fedorowicz: No one gets charged if the project doesn't reach the funding goal. Your money never left your bank account and we didn't receive a dime. That's how KS works and we were fine with it.

      Sad to see, but if this is the best decision I support it fully. Also what will you do with the fund currently raised?

      Sad to hear it, but I'm glad you are dedicated to giving it another go, with all the knowledge you've accumulated. Please let us know when you are back up and running!!
