Actually, do you plan on making this available on consoles?
If so, that'd be great!

Yeah, I'd like to do a Switch version at the very least.
However, note that my first priority is to make the game the best that it can. And I don't want to over promise (given the time and money required). So I would need to hit the Switch milestone during the Kickstarter, or it might happen later down the line if the PC version is enough of a success.

It's been another busy week!

We're almost done adding in the new batch of sound effects. And with finishing the new pixel art and music packages. So I've been doing a lot of reviewing these last few days.

I'm not really sure about the status of the French translations. It's going to be a challenge to get it done before the Kickstarter at this pace I think.

And finally all my remaining time was spend on building the Kickstarter page. As seen in the attached screenshots.

We're currently at 37% funding with 26 days left to go. XD

If you're reading this after all these many many years of development, then what are you waiting for? This is it! Let's do this!

I'll be skipping the next few regular weekend updates as it's all about the Kickstarter right now.
We are currently setting at 44% funding, with 21 days left to go.

Also, I've posted the first few Kickstarter updates, including an interview with the developer of the Zelda-like "Ocean's Heart":

Had that craving to work on the actual game again, so I added an awakened item into the game today:

Hey everyone :)

We're currently sitting at 129 backers, 55% funding, and 211 project follower who have not yet backed. The amount of backer per day is picking back up again, but let me tell you: it's pretty nerve wrecking to see if we are going to make it.

Just 9 days left to support the game on Kickstarter and make the dream a reality.


Also, I recently posted another project update with new item reveals:

Thank you, thank you!
I really hope we can get the project funded on Kickstarter. The campaign is so nerve wrecking at the moment. :-\

Good luck getting it funded!
I don't have any online accounts to help, unfortunately.
Curious, what happens if it fails?

Thanks!

You mean you don't have a creditcard to make an account? No worries. It's no obligation to support.

And if it fails.. hmm.. then I'll probably cry in a corner for a bit. Take some time away from the project. Scale back my plans a good amount. And give it another try in a year or so. XD It also depends on my work situation and such how I'm going to continue.

Although at this point I don't want tot think about spending this much time and energy on a campaign again. Kickstarters are a LOT of work and stress man.

Some time ago, I tried making an online account, but was denied because a family member had one.

And, if a kickstarter doesn't meet the goal in time, the project can't take off? Why is there a timer anyway?

Ah okay. Well, I am open to people transferring rewards to others, but it's up to you if you want to go through that hassle for the rewards/discount.

The timer is a site rule. The creator asks for a certain amount of funding from the public in order to finish their product (in exchange for a future copy of that product and often added rewards/discounts). If the funding goal is met (or exceeded) on the end date, then the creator receives the pledged funding to finish their project. And if the goal is not met, then they don't and backers do not pay anything. That part is good for backers, because it lowers the change of underfunded doomed projects. Overall it's a nice setup where the dev can get funded without greedy companies or loans. And the backers get nice quirks, rewards and discounts. Just make sure you trust the developer to actually deliver on their promises.

The 30 days time limit is pretty common. Maybe because some people live paycheck to paycheck or something. I'm not really sure.

Sounds good.
Yeah, I can't afford to shell out regardless. I get like, $60 spendable a month.
Anyway, I hope your project makes it!

Just 43 hours left, with 1.5k needed before the game is fully funded. This is so nerve wrecking XD

And the game is now fully funded, with 8 hours left to go to build a small buffer!
It has been quite the rollercoaster.  XD
