So, Kickstarter did not go well. It happens.
While backer support was exceptional, and media reviews encouraging, the game failed to gain the critical mass required to gather the kind of funding we needed to complete it.
We can blame it on the post-E3 next gen frenzy, or on the summer slump, or on a lack of experience with sales, but we'd rather put the blame down, and move on instead!
Since we won't be able to complete the full game as we'd hoped, we are instead going to release the first half of Dark Matter as Episode 1, with the intention of completing the story with Episode 2 as soon as possible.
It's not our preferred way of moving forward, but better to hobble with one leg than not to hobble at all.
In the meanwhile we have uploaded all our gameplay videos, and the Companion's story intro, to the IndieDB gallery, and will be around to talk a bit more about the game later on in the month!
