Why are we going to Kickstarter?

We feel that the time is now right to run an awareness campaign. We have many of the game’s visual assets created which will help us to portray to potential backers a sense of how the game will play out. We have been self-funding this project for a while now, however the funds are running thin and we cannot continue to do so.¬†With Liam and Matt both finished with their respective PhDs, it is time for Slug Disco to source some funding.

We have considered many funding options and are pursuing a few of these. But we feel that it is just as important that we get the game in front of our player base as soon as possible and that they are the ones to guide us through to its completion.

More media and info will appear during the run up to our Kickstarter campaign. At the launch of the campaign there will be a full and detailed video trailer with narration, followed by developer chats, new images and much more.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about Empires of the Undergrowth, we look forward to undertaking this journey with you all.
