We did it! We all did it!! Minotaur has crossed the funding line. We delayed our update on that a bit because we wanted to give you this:
We've got one more for when the campaign will actually be over :D I'm also saving our big speech for that. For now, I would just like to say that the journey (however banal it may sound) has been as awesome as the satisfaction from reaching its current goal. We've met a lot of great people (you!), made new friends (also you!) and have received a dose of inspiration that's enough to make at least a couple of games! (We'll stick with making Minotaur twice as good, though.)
And Kickstarter part of that journey's not over! I believe we can still make that "free OST for everyone" goal. To encourage new people to join our cause (and to show our appreciation to existing backers), we decided to bring our €40K goal down to €35K level. Just like that:
You can see that our €40K goal was game support for mods (we still have to pay for music rights, but this we can do by making an extra effort). We want to provide tools which will make modifying certain aspects of the game relatively easy. Modders will be able to add things like fansubs and new outfits/graphics for characters, adjust how certain parts of the game look, and so on.
We think it's pretty important to have something like that, because a dedicated community (like ours!) will succeed where devs alone won't be able to (by adding fansubs for language which lacks official translation, for example).
So let's get there... Just like we got to our main goal!
