Dreamfall Chapters is funded! Thank you!
The following update was posted to our Kickstarter page and mailed to our pledgers yesterday. Funding continues via PayPal for the time being, so if you want to donate and get a copy of the game -- along with lots of goodies -- click here. We will update our PayPal page very soon and change the rewards and options.
That's what all 21,858 of you have generously contributed to the production of Dreamfall Chapters. One-point-five MILLION dollars. Just...wow. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We are grateful and humbled, inspired by your support and belief in this project and in us.
Now it's our turn to deliver.
This is the last of the Kickstarter updates. This is the first of the post-Kickstarter updates.
We're going to keep you updated on what's going on with Dreamfall Chapters, what we're working on, how we're spending your money. We'll keep you informed, entertained, amused and involved. Every step of the way.
There won't be daily updates, of course, but we'll post something as often as possible, as often as we have something to talk about or show. Expect text updates, video diaries, new art, screenshots, character concepts, voice samples. Expect music, behind-the-scenes photos, outtakes and anecdotes. Expect some surprises along the way.
This is not just our game now. It's yours, too. And we're going to share it with you, the best we can. Oh, there will be mysteries because mysteries are still important. But we asked you to join us on this journey, and we're staying true to our word.
This is a journey we take together.
So what's going to happen now?
Well, we're going to answer any questions you guys may have. We're going to take care of the practicalities. We're going to launch a forum and give you guys your badges. We're going to move everyone over there, and build a strong, vocal, friendly, creative and supportive community. A community we can all be proud of, where we can be honest and open, inclusive and gracious. The development team will be active and communicative, and you'll get to interact with absolutely everyone. You'll get to know them personally.
And we're going to build a great game.
Tomorrow we will be back with some more practical information, particularly in regards to PayPal. We'll also provide an update about the fan art competition. And we'll share some words from the rest of the team, some of whom you may not have heard from yet.
But until then, let's celebrate the fact that Dreamfall Chapters is now a thing that will happen! It's actually really, really real. And not only do we get to make a game; we get to make the Director's Cut of this game.
That makes me very, very happy.
So thank you all again. For being so damn great. For helping us run a damn fine Kickstarter. For being the friendliest and most engaging bunch of fans and pledgers we could have hoped for. I've enjoyed this experience so much, and I can't wait to get started on the rest of it.
We've said it a hundred times already, but what the hell -- we're not done quite yet:
Onwards & upwards, gang!
