To the 4000+ members of The Brotherhood in the final 24 hours of this campaign
I know that the standard practice in the final 24 hours is a call to arms to spread the word about your project! However I feel that you; the backers, journalists, ‘Let’s Players’, forum and community members from around the world….have gone above and beyond already and I want to take this time to thank you.
Three years ago I set out to create my ultimate adventure game. Drawing on a love of Science Fiction and a burning need to tell stories I envisioned Stasis.
Weekends, holidays and nights; Stasis is the result of hard work and pure passion.
My family can attest to the fact that just before we sent our Alpha Demo, my hands were shaking. The first thought that went through my head was “everyone is going to hate this…people aren’t going to enjoy the game. It’s slow…it’s going to crash…”
I started to get feedback and at first I thought that people are just being kind. They didn’t want to hurt an artists feelings. More and more people started to experience the world through the Alpha and I realized just how special Stasis is.
Taking Stasis to Kickstarter was not an easy decision. It took me a long time to weigh up the pros and cons. The thought of having other people put their money and support into my game scared me. To be honest, it still does! I knew that the world of Stasis needs more than a few spare hours to take it to its full potential. It needed MORE of me – and the only way that I could do that is with YOUR help.
This Kickstarter campaign has been an amazing journey. Through Stasis I have met so many amazing and talented people. Kickstarter is a special community that is built on giving – on the power of creating.
I now have the freedom to delve into Stasis and create the ultimate Adventure Game, the game that I wished someone else would make.
Through Kickstarter, Stasis will have one of the greatest composers in video games working to create an incredible tapestry of sound.
Through Kickstarter Stasis will get every waking moment of my time and energy to create a rich, diverse, and terrifying world.
Through Kickstarter Stasis will be ALIVE.
I want to reflect on everything that the 4000 strong collective of people has done; taking an unknown concept from an unknown developer and helping to make it into tangible reality.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
