I guess that team behind pretty much every Kickstarter project makes sure to thank their backers, people who believed and shared their dream and came together to support it. We've supported several projects ourselves, so we've seen their creators talking about how incredible their journey towards their Kickstarter goal was. But only now that we've experienced this journey ourselves, I can truly understand what they were talking about. 

This was seriously amazing. You were amazing.

These last few days of our campaign were quite a ride! Together, we managed to reach our most important stretch goals. That much-coveted OST, which will feature 30+ tracks of great (we promise) music, and which will include a hi-res digital 8-page booklet with music-related artwork and comments from the game...

Over 90 minutes of music from Minotaur will be available to everyone who pledged €8 and up

Developer support for mods, which will make it easy for enthusiasts to add fansubs, new character outfits and maybe even side stories...

We plan to enable hooks for graphics customization, too

And even one additional outfit for every Minotaur character which we will add ourselves!

All that not to mention other nice things we achieved before, like Ollie waking you up and additional in-game content!

So what's next?

Your support and comments inspired us more than you know. We thought we'd need a couple of days to take it all in and rest, but forget that! Our enthusiasm is off the charts. So here's what we're doing now (aside from working on Minotaur, of course!):

  • Setting up post-campaign handling (most likely with BackerKit) to start collecting data for deliveries and give you a way to manage your pledge and information.
  • Planning schedule and infrastructure for alpha-testing. We need your feedback, and we want the exchange to be convenient and efficient!
  • Making 6 very pretty wallpapers we promised to deliver first thing.

Remember, if you have any questions, message us or comment here on Kickstarter, or send an e-mail to uof7@chainbit.com, and we'll make sure to get back to you. I don't think we've left even one question unanswered so far, and we plan to keep it up. In the meantime, we'll get to sorting that list out, and I'll make sure to update you on the schedule and other things in our next post.

Until then,

Nick & u7committee

      Hi Behonkiss! Thanks for asking:-)) We've been preparing a big update, and it's coming in just a few days. It will contain info on development status and schedule and alpha testing, wallpapers for backers, dedicated website section and some other minor stuff (like upgrading pledges). The update will be public, but there will also be a message to all backers with instruction on accessing exclusive content.

      Cheers!

      Nick

      Any idea when we can expect the next dev update?

      @U7 committee - Yup; I'm the 'head penguin' of PenguinDT, so penguin high-five right back :D

      @Porcupine Thank you! We're also very happy... And I agree with you on the point of original concepts! I've seen many of them on Kickstarter that often don't get the attention they deserve. We're really lucky to be discovered by such supportive audience!

      @Gensuta Thanks, Gensuta! We're looking forward to seeing you there :-) And best of luck to your duo with your own creative projects!

      @Vince Vazquez Thank you, Vince! Those are the games we love, and that's exactly what we intend to do :D And thanks for your suggestions regarding promotion, too. We really appreciate it \(^-^)/

      @Sylvia Thank you, Sylvia! I hope you'll love both :D

      @Jouni Lahtinen Thank you! No problem :-) We appreciate your support! Are you, by any chance, from TAGAP team? Penguin high-five (or one, technically) then!

      Often the most intriguing, interesting and original concepts (like Minotaur) have the hardest time on Kickstarter - I'm so glad you made it! Congrats!

      Congrats!! I'm so happy this game reached the stretch goals and I can't wait to help out with alpha testing! c:

      Congratulations! You ran a good campaign and I'm happy both to be a backer and to see it succeed. I don't even like Visual Novels, but I'll occasionally dive into something "VN-adjacent" like Phoenix Wright, Professor Layton or Zero Escape if the gameplay & setting look intriguing enough. I'm happy to take a chance on Minotaur; really seems like that kind of game that transcends the VN roots and succeeds at being a great point-n-click adventure too!

      Now, just gotta keep doing what you're doing. Make the best game you can. Good luck! \(^-^)/

      Congratulations! Can't wait for the game and OST.

      Congratulations! Sorry I couldn't donate more ATM, but here's hoping I can upgrade my pledge later to include the Unter T-shirt :)
