Happy 2018!

Post by BasiliskWrangler » January 2nd, 2018, 9:41 am

Sorry I am a day or so late with my annual "thanks for a great 2017, and hope everyone has an even better 2018" message. But here it is none the less!

Although we're not selling as many copies of Eschalon as we used to, we still are and we get new players every week. To all our new customers in 2017, thank you for your support and helping to push us through to the next game. And a big thank you to people who have donated to us! We received almost $500 in donations in 2017, and that money goes directly into the production of our next game. It's helped us pay for some additional graphics and sound effects so far.

Speaking of our next game, it is still coming along nicely, but I don't have an announcement date planned yet. I've just started collecting clips to add to a trailer, but there are 2 or 3 key areas that I want to include in the video and those areas haven't even been started yet. It'll be a few more months before I'm there, so we're probably looking at the formal game announcement in late spring. I want the release date to be no more than 6 months out from the game's announcement, so that will be a factor as well.

Finally, thank you to all our regulars who keep stopping by from time to time. I promise to show you some cool stuff in 2018!

Happy 2018, Thomas! And all the folks here in the Pub. Been a great many years "knowing" you all and I look forward to more years and new conversations about the new game when we hear more.
