Hi everyone,

We have decided to close the Kickstarter and stop the development of Freebooter for the foreseeable future. At the time of writing, we are still at 8% of the Kickstarter goal amount, and we do not see a way to turn things around before the end of the Kickstarter.

We have loved the idea of Freebooter ever since we first discussed it and we have enjoyed working on the game for the past year. We knew it was a very ambitious project from the start and that it would be a long shot to get it made, but we are happy that we have made an attempt.

We would like to thank everyone who have backed the Kickstarter and everyone who has followed Freebooter over the past year. We have been overwhelmed by the attention Freebooter has gotten and we are sorry we could not give you a chance to play it. In the end Freebooter proved too ambitious, but we will keep making games. Once again, thank you all for your support.

Sincerely,
Johannes, Jakob and Nissanthen, Tribunal Games.

We didn't have enough money to continue development full-time and we weren't willing to work on it part-time, so we decided to put the game on hold.

Does this mean that there still is a chance to continue the development on the game (thats what I understand from "on hold")

You will be able to buy ships and equip them with stuff, but you won't be able to build a ship from scratch.
