Unfortunately, last month, Sekai came to the decision to no longer serve as our publisher. Given their reach in audience, this makes hitting our current funding goal much more difficult, especially for a final product that's intended to be free. It's a significant setback, but after some consideration, we felt the best course of action was to further lower our goal by limiting assets, and to include additional physical merch to incentivize backers.
We've also changed how we'll go about development going forward, now that more time will be needed to manage promotion and fulfillment. The heroine routes will be released incrementally—one at a time—with every member contributing to its completion. Regardless of the Kickstarter's success, we'll adopt this new strategy in an attempt to hasten progress.
Here's a timeline of when the remaining tasks for the campaign should be complete:
October: Finalized list of physical and digital merch.
December: Brand new Lucid9 trailer. Contracts sent and signed.
January: Estimated release dates set for routes. Kickstarter goes live.
You can find a draft of the Kickstarter page here. Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions. The pre-launch page should be available in December.
Thank you for your patience,
