Not too wide, but quite tall.
It's been 30 days, but it actually feels like it's been 30 weeks ... or has it been 30 minutes? When you are this sleep deprived, you have no concept of time.
The campaign ended with an intense bout with $700k, with only a few minutes to spare and a few hundred dollars short. Those of us in the comments felt as though we were watching some sort of numeric championship sporting event. It was intense!
A Different Type of Campaign
This campaign was not only a drive to get Santorini funded, it represents much more. From the start of the campaign until now, with the amazing work of Mr. Cuddington, we have now completed roughly 80% the artwork in the game. We also have a good head start on our tutorial video series and final ruleset thanks to Joe McDaid, Simon Rourke, Michael Van Biesbrouck, Lee Mitchell, Richard Castle, Mario Radmilovic, Patrick Dombrowski and many others! In essence, a huge portion of the creation of this game was built live during the campaign.
Your input has been invaluable. Your criticisms helped us do better, and your kind words kept us motivated. There are so many people we need to thank, that we are just going to say, thank you to you all.
When you play this game for the first time, remember that you helped make it. This campaign was a shining example of what crowdfunding is all about.
Keeping you informed is extremely important to us. Starting on Sunday, May, 1 we will begin our trademark Fortnightly updates. These updates will occur every 2 weeks from now until fulfillment of the game is complete, regardless of whether or not there is anything to report. We will also include some more daily puzzles, video tutorials, and other initiatives in these updates. But best of all, our updates are full of progress bars showing you every single type of work we have remaining and how much of it we've finished.
What happens now?
We sleep. Our team will take a short break for the remainder of the week. We will answer direct messages via Kickstarter. We have also set up a special support email address: firstname.lastname@example.org which goes to our team. Monday we begin working our tails off again to bring this baby to completion as efficiently and accurately as we can.
Thanks again to everyone!
Keep rollin' sixes,
