FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, IL- September, 27, 2013- Castle Breakers Kickstarter Campaign flatlines immediately. Developer attempts “hard reset” of fundraiser in an effort to save project and indie career from cancellation. Switches target platform from Mobile to PC.
After an initial week of anemic results, Alan Noon of Black Black Beast, LLC reflects on what went wrong and forges a plan to address the situation.
Alan Noon said, “After this week's disappointing start, I took a hard look at the data, listened to the feedback coming in, and sought out perspective from other developers and Kickstarter alums. Mistakes were made. A number of issues have been identified. Due to the nature of the Kickstarter system, some are more easily addressed on the fly than others. As such, I believe the best course of action will be to cancel the Kickstarter currently underway, and relaunch early next week.”
He went on to say, “I believe the game itself is solid; it has been very well received online. Those that have played the prototype have enjoyed the imaginative spin on the classic game play, and the visuals have received considerable praise. I aim to eliminate some points of confusion and get a few more eyeballs on the project.”
Work on revamping the campaign will go on throughout the weekend with the goal of having a refreshed Kickstarter page ready for Monday morning, September 30. Specifying the pre-order tier, clarifying the rewards, and tightening up the project description are priorities, as is having a playable prototype available by the end of the week. The game will also be targeting a PC release this time.
