Okay. Whew! Still cannot wait for this game.
Hi everyone, we're working on an update this week. I know we've been quiet and I appreciate that people get nervous when that happens. Please don't be nervous! We've had a crazy roller coaster few months but we hear all your comments and know you're anxiously awaiting new information. We will hopefully get that update out soon and that should give you a better picture of what's been happening around here lately. Thank you all for your patience and continued excitement about this project. We're still fully committed to getting this game to you as soon as we can!
Officially getting nervous.
I agree with Kimmo. Additionally I find it highly disrespectful towards your backers here on Kickstarter. Last Update was last November! And some comment does NOT constitute an update. Please update us on the current status of the game,
Also I will stop trying to get friends and community members interested in this game - why should I? Currently I don't even know if you are still working on the game.
Hi, I understand that it takes time away from other work to post an update, and I understand that if there isn't much new to say other than "still working on it" you may feel like it's pointless or perhaps even disappointing to make an update about that. However, as someone who has seen many crowdfunded projects go through such a phase (most of them are late after all), the ones that keep posting updates _even if the update says practically nothing_ generally manage to keep the backers feeling better and thus posting more positive stuff about the project, instead of FUD.
So, I strongly urge you to please keep posting updates at least once a month, preferably every two weeks. It is more important for the community now than ever, even if it is less important for you or for delivering the information (especially if there is nothing new). The updates don't have to be anything fancy or long, just say what's going on and maybe a couple of sentences about what specific things are being worked on. So far the community around this game has been very positive, let's keep it that way. =)
Hey guys, know you are busy! But like the others I am anxious to hear some news, even if it's just we are still heads down working hard, here's a pic of us at the office or something. When you're excited about a project it makes you news hungry, :)
Any news ?
any little update would be greatly appreciated ;)
GDC is over, looking forward to an update...
Realy waiting for a big update :)
Still spreading the word! Telling a few pals on Steam to keep their eyes open for this you to hit down the road. I keep running into retro gamers who hadn't heard about this game, but are VERY interested. Traveled to the Kansas City Comic Con a few weeks ago with my Commodore shirt on... used it a means to get the retro game conversations going. Good time...
This project has stayed at the top of my list since I backed it!
I’m very much looking forward to playing this game :)
Can’t wait to see its release, but I’m staying patient because I know it’s getting made into what we all are wanting to play! Can’t rush perfection!
Thank you for the update. It looks like a few amazing kickstarter projects are dropping early this year and this is at the top of my list.
Hey everyone! We’re still alive and working hard on your game. Here's a short update:
We’re working on several key things at the moment including getting ready for GDC next month, and preparing to launch on Steam this spring. There’s only two of us doing a TON of work so realistically, we don’t expect to post another update until after GDC in March – but as always, if you don’t hear from us, it’s only because we’re hard at work and don’t want to take time away from development to write updates.
You can help us by spreading the word about Unknown Realm. Any articles you see about RPGs coming out this year? Leave a comment about Unknown Realm! The game forums you love to visit? Post about Unknown Realm! These comments not only keep us motivated, they let the game industry know that you guys exist and still want classic single-player RPGs like Unknown Realm to be made!
Thanks again for all your support!
I almost forgot about this project- was it just an amazing dream? Update please. And thank you.
Yes i think were are all waiting eagerly for an update
I'd like to know if all content backers answered their survey by now. OH, and an update in general would be nice :-) I wonder if anything physical has been produced in the meantime (e.g. engraved dices from the Tavern or cartridge shells etc.)
Been firing up my 64 emulator a lot the past couple weeks and recalling the glory days of the mid to late 80s. For some reason I started playing Deathlord yesterday... what I think is one of the hardest CRPG games I have ever come across... permadeath instant saves... gawd... Anyway, many good memories playing those old CRPGs. Looking forward to Unknown Realm all the more!
Belated Happy New Year to all!
@sky25es, Stirring Dragon Games sent a special holiday card to just a handful of individuals who we felt have gone above and beyond in support of our work this past year. We're always on the lookout for ways to express our appreciation to backers and fans who take the time to support/promote Unknown Realm and Stirring Dragon Games via social media or with comments on articles and forums. ;-) We would have loved to send it to all of our Unknown Realm backers, but unfortunately with the number of backers we have, that would have been too costly to produce. For those interested, you can see a few pictures of the card on our Twitter (@StirringDragon).
Holiday card? What Holiday card?
Thanks for the Holiday card! You guys even did a wax seal on the envelope, awesome.
An a happy new year...
Merry X-Mas SDG
I agree - take your time. but I think you should have added a deadline (e.g. 12-31-2017) for the content backers to answer the surveys, otherwise this might end as a never ending story.
so excited for this! +1 vote to take your time and get it right, no rush!
Thanks for the update. So glad I backed this amazing project.
thanks for the update guys ! i won’t be playing until the cartridge is ready so take your time and the wait will be worth it !
I have almost $200 in this game for a c64 cart and mountain etc. I second the sentiment that I would rather see delays than a cart that can't be updated and has bugs. That said, it is concerning when a campaign that had done communication so exceptionally well, suddenly goes kinda quiet. Monthly updates like clockwork until September and now almost 2.5 months since last update. I know it takes time away from development, but communication to backers is a critical part of crowdfunding a project. Like @Kieshar, I just want to hear what's going on, good or bad. I'm a java developer by trade, so I'm super sympathetic to delays and timeline slippage, etc,
well let’s see what any news brings and go from there! Up to now there’s been no talk of major delays so would be surprising if they said another year from the original projected date...
@Seppo totally agree with you, i'm only hungry for news :)
Don't get your hopes too high for Christmas guys. 95% of Kickstarters gets delayed anyway. If they deliver the game in schedule, consider it as a AWESOME surprise. I would indeed want to play this on next Christmas and feel like a kid again but we need to be realistic. And the LAST thing which I want Stirring Dragon Games to do is to rush half finished game out with bugs and glitches. Take your time guys and deliver us a perfect game.
i’m hoping i can still play this on my Christmas holiday ??
No news? :(
You are right, Stallone7 :)
SDG did state that MegaFounder would get the game after Kickstarter backers would. They are still expecting a late Dec 2017 release for us :) I do not know if we will have it before Christmas or not, but I do believe that was the plan for us to have it by Christmas.
I'll be happy even if its a bit after Christmas. Bruce and Laura are working very hard getting it done for us to all enjoy the game.
Megafounder campaign was later. The plan was (if i remember right) first comes the backer (who made this whole capaign a big sucess) from the ks capaign, after that the people from megafounder. And that was the reason why is shipping date spring 2018 for MF and 2017 for KS. I thing think this question was already answered from SDG
Well, the Kickstarter campaign says Dec. 2017, but on Megafounder it was set to (spring?) 2018
I am pretty sure Stirring Dragon Games would announce if they were experiencing any delays with the project.
I know they are working around the clock getting what needs done put in its place and prepared for everyone’s hands on time.
They will give an update soon. I am not worried.
Personally, I want them to primarily focus on getting the code written and debugged so that when we get it, it is perfect :)
Until now there was no delay announced. So i still believe in the shipping date December 2017
I don't think we will have this under the Christmas tree
Like the others. Looking for a new Update. Christmas and release date is getting closer <3
I came here to ask the same question as bjsallee. Good to hear from you, SDG, looking forward to an update!
@bjsallee - Don't worry, you're still in the right place. :) We're shooting for an update in a few weeks.
Are updates published on a different platform now, or just not an October update yet? Just want to make sure I am checking in the right place.
@Kleshar - thanks for your enthusiasm and support! A new update should be posted in the next week or two. :)
any news about the game we are all waiting for? �
@David: I sent you a message. :)
Just a heads up to everyone else: if you're not receiving email notifications when a new update is posted, you may want to double check your notification settings on Kickstarter. Make sure you have project update notifications turned on for Unknown Realm.
I have not been getting updates by email lately.
Can you please send me another email to say hello just to make sure I am still able to get them?
Times flying. Almost half of the year 2017 is over. Only another 6 month until december 2017. Exited for a new update. Go for it SDG!
