Default Gravia Tactics - Kickstarter Canceled

August 12th, 2014, 18:05
Punchbag Entertainment has canceled the kickstarter for Gravia Tactics, and posted a new update with infomation on the games future.

Looking to the Future

Jun and I have discussed it and we've decided to postpone the Kickstarter for now. It's a shame because we really wanted to start full time development right away, but we're just not getting the exposure we need - despite everybody's best efforts.

It's not a gloomy outcome, though, as we've learned and gained a lot and haven't lost anything to the process. Thank you to everybody who gave us feedback one way or another and an even bigger thanks to those who pledged. Whether it be the mountains of positive or the small portion of critical, nearly all of the feedback was constructive and we truly appreciate that!

What We Did Right

The game - We really felt like we had a good thing with Gravia… Now we know it! The feedback, enthusiasm and interest we've received throughout the campaign has been really inspiring. We're honestly so grateful to you all. Thank you so much!

The Kickstarter Page - We're proud of the page and the great feedback we got. Thank you all!

The honesty - This is a big one for us, we wore our hearts on our sleeves and everybody made us feel really glad that we did. We're lucky to have met some of the most awesome people the internet has to offer.

What We Missed

A Demo - We should have released a demo of the game alongside the Kickstarter. We didn't, because it hasn't been robustly tested on multiple systems and we didn't have the time to perform that kind of Quality Control, but we should have found a way. A demo would have put us on Let's Play streams, more news sites would have picked us up and you - our amazing and growing community - would have had something tangible to get even more excited about!

Handheld Support - We see PC, Mac and Linux as our first targets. We've always wanted to play a game like Gravia on a HD monitor using a mouse! What we didn't anticipate is just how enthusiastic people are about playing tactical games on their handheld consoles like the Vita. Quite a few of you got in touch telling us the Vita should be a stretch goal. We've definitely heard you, and we've planned accordingly.
More information.

Like it or not the handheld market speaks loudly. Whether they will back it up with bucks or not remains to be seen. Sadly it's easier to design for any other platform and port to pc. Ends up a poor experience for pc users.
