Report from the Trenches

Hello dear fan! I know you have questions. Let’s get the most obvious thing out of the way:

Τhe game is NOT canceled. We’re still working on it exclusively and full time. And yes, we are as shocked as you that we haven’t finished the game yet! 

The project we’re making is different from what we started with. It was a cool, fun little platformer. We’ve expanded that to a beautiful metroidvania with an immersive world to explore. I guess building a universe takes time, especially when you're both inexperienced and trying to create something awesome.

Regarding the radio silence, it was simply easier. The game still has a ways to go, we're facing many difficult decisions and I was focusing exclusively on them and my team. But this isn't good enough.

My new year’s resolution is to write up a small update at the end of every month, even if it’s just a short sentence telling you we’re alive. Oh, and maybe get the project closer to the finish line. We'd like that!

You see, the game we’re making right now is our dream project. I know we’ll have to work hard to win back your attention but I believe the game will do it for us.

Thank you for your awesome patience. I wish you're safe and happy, wherever you are!  

John K - Game Developer
