Kickstarter campaign is live!

Hey all! I have extremely exciting news to share today!

I just launched a Kickstarter campaign for World's Dawn and am looking to raise $5,000 to finish and polish the game. You can check out the campaign at the link below and please please please -- if you love World's Dawn and want to help it get even better, consider throwing a few dollars towards the project. I appreciate every little bit of support, great and small!

I also wanted to clear up some concerns you, the devoted fans, might have about this next step. First of all, World's Dawn is going to get finished even if the Kickstarter campaign is not successful. I don't want you to worry that I'm going to abandon the project this far in. Either way, the winter season is going to be released and you'll be able to play the finished game.

What exactly will the money go towards?
There are more details on the campaign page, but in short, I'm planning to revamp all of the character portraits, rewrite the entire soundtrack, and put the game through a rigorous testing process that will finally iron out all the little bugs in the experience. Check out the image below for one example of these improvements!



Lovely, aren't they? If the project is successfully funded, you can expect the same sort polish to be applied to the entire game, top to bottom.


So does this mean World's Dawn is going commercial?
My hope is to eventually make a little money off of the game, after working on it for the last 5 years. So yes, I'm definitely going to be looking into Steam and other platforms to release the game for a small price. HOWEVER! Because you guys got in early and supported me before anyone else, the game will be COMPLETELY FREE to anyone who has downloaded it prior to today. So please do not delete your game folders or save files! You'll need those to unlock the final release free of charge. I would still love it if you would back the Kickstarter campaign with a few dollars, but I am forever grateful for your support regardless.

Thank you so much, everyone! Please let me know if you have any questions!

The character art was one of the only things I was a little iffy about in this title and now I think if you get backed (Which I'm sure will happen you have a great game) is going to make this game a homerun
whoa i really love new graphics! best of luck--i'd love to see this funded.
This is something that has nothing to do with the campaign, but I like your job D:. Your daily job, I mean D:.

Wow, I do like the new look for the portraits and I'm sure it will look amazing when it is finished. I have no doubt you'll reach your funding goal with a little help from your friends xD, Good luck.
First the successful Kickstarter of Shipbreaker's Daughter, now this, and then the inevitable Kickstarter of Erias Line... Our engine is certainly getting more prominent. I'm not particularly interested in this subgenre, but good luck anyway. You should have no trouble reaching the goal as it stands, so it might even be worthwhile to consider stretch goals.
Thank you so much, everyone! It's going to be stressful slowly working up on my goal throughout June, but I'm hoping I can make it, especially with a little support from the RPG Maker community. If you feel like helping me out (even if you don't pledge) please consider sharing or posting the link anywhere you think there might be interested players!
Serves me right for waiting for the final version before downloading to avoid spoilers.
Good luck with the kickstarter though.

I'm sorry! Send me an email at info@waywardprophet.com and I should be able to hook you up... I definitely don't want to alienate anyone who's been supporting World's Dawn from the beginning.

And I appreciate the luck!

I'll probably be sending one later today then. Thanks a lot for letting me get the game even though I was too late to download it.

Edit: Already sent. It's niko_aom_goku@hotmail.com

Good god! The graphics are extraordinary! Definitely will have to pitch in a few dollars for this project.

Got it! I promise I'll get you a copy of the finished game one way or another... though I'd still love it if you'd be willing to share the link or help out another way =)

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like the updated graphics, I'm really hoping the campaign will be successful so I can revamp the entire game to that standard.
I'll se if I can help in some way. Thanks again.

Wait, is this the YDS game about colonial life turned sim?
^ Not sure what life sim you're talking about, but no, World's Dawn isn't it! This is my own original project I'm trying to polish and release with the help of this Kickstarter campaign.
