THE FUTURE OF THE BLACK GLOVE
Huge thanks for all your support this last month!
The entire team sincerely appreciates your backing, feedback, and help spreading the word.
We’d also like to sincerely thank our “extended family,” such as our stellar voice cast Yuri Lowenthal, Tara Platt, Fryda Wolff, and Oliver Vaquer; BioShock Infinite’s BAFTA award winning music director Jim Bonney; Well Liked PR’s Rachel Kane; video editors Eddie Doty and Bill Gardner; lawyer Michael Cavaretta; and many more.
So, what’s next for The Black Glove?
The short answer is that we mean to fight like hell to keep it from being cancelled. We believe in the game and you all have shown you do, too.
We’ve received a lot of questions on whether we planned on immediately starting up another fundraising campaign for The Black Glove at a lower fundraising goal.
As you know, we’ve been funding The Black Glove entirely out of pocket for months while juggling freelance work. We don’t have angel investors or a publisher.
We asked for the total we needed to guarantee that we could self-publish the game within a year with 6+ hours worth of content for $20. If we turned around immediately and asked for less without having secured the rest of the funds necessary, we wouldn’t be able to guarantee our Kickstarter backers that we could deliver the game.
But, we’re pursuing all options. We’re beginning to talk to all the publishers who have reached out over the last few weeks. We have a few other ideas, as well.
It may be weeks or months before we have news to report, but we intend to be back with more as soon as possible.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?!
And if you’re in the game industry, we have a bevy of talented developers who are available for freelance while we sort out next steps. (Contact joe at dayfornightgames dot com for details.)
Thanks again for everything! More soon!
