Dawn KS Cancelled – Relaunch assured

G’day guys,

First of all, Eagle Games and I would like to thank everyone who has backed and supported Dawn – Rise of the Occulites. It has been very much appreciated and the kind words of encouragement and support have been humbling.

At the present time the Kickstarter has stalled somewhat. Over the last week we have been working hard to make a decision on what the best course of action is for both the backers and us. As much as it pains us to say it, we feel that at this point in time, it is in the best interests of everyone to cancel the existing project. I can assure you that this decision has not been made lightly.

That being said, we have learnt much from the experience and feel that we now have a far better idea and  a clearer view as to how we can run a more successful campaign. Our intention is to restructure the Kickstarter project to address some of the hiccups we have encountered and to provide a more effective funding approach. Stretch goals will be carefully thought out and structured in a way to facilitate regular success intervals. We aim to relaunch in 30 days, but to get revised production estimates and accurately painted samples, it may end up being 60 days.

One thing for sure is that we are serious about delivering an outstanding game and believe that with your support, we will be able to do just that.

So in the meantime, to help ensure that our relaunch is as successful as possible, please talk about the game, spread the word, read the rules and post your thoughts. While the sun has not risen on Dawn just yet, it certainly hasn’t set either.

Thank you for all your continued support and we look forward to successfully Kickstarting Dawn – Rise of the Occulites in the next 30 to 60 days.

Ben and the team at Eagle Games.

    Kinda disappointed with this, I don’t see the point of cancelling. Will I now put my money elsewhere? probably.

      Sorry you feel that way Andy, but I assure you it was the right thing to do for everyone involved. Relaunching means we will have a better opportunity to be able to deliver a better game in the end. I hope we’ll see you in the new Kickstarter. All the best.
