Title: Mage's Initiation Kickstarter a Huge Success!
Post by: GameDevChris on March 22, 2013, 11:51:49 PM
It is with great joy that we announce our Kickstarter campaign for Mage's Initiation (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2112639455/mages-initiation-a-classic-sierra-style-adventure) was a monumental success! We blew past our goal and ended with a resounding 192%; over $125,000. We are beyond amazed by the incredible outpouring of support from our fans, both old and new, and can't wait to give back an epic game and top-notch collectibles in return!

We have also received over $2,600 in PayPal pledges at the time of writing, a big thank you to our PayPal backers as well! While PayPal pledgers couldn't participate in the comment section, you'll still be able to participate in both our public forums, and the private backer forums coming soon!

We're thrilled to say that we blazed past most of our stretch goals, and we'll get to greatly expand the game with class-specific side-quests and open up a new explorable wasteland area, plus add additional 2D cutscenes and old school "close up" artwork to punctuate key game scenes, both of which will greatly flesh out the rich narrative. We'll also be adding some new monsters to Iginor's forests for all your target practice needs!

Once again, from the bottom of our hearts: THANK YOU. The past month has been an incredible journey! And if you missed the Kickstarter, we're currently running a "slacker backer" campaign via PayPal here (http://www.himalayastudios.com/games/mages/#pay-pal), to see if we can meet the rest of our stretch goals!

Grats!   8) I'm also excited for this game and really appreciate developers like you who keep adventure games going. I am a long time Sierra game fan and have followed your remakes for a long time and am very happy to have been able to support your new project :)
