    Good luck, guys. This looks very promising. I've been following Ash of Gods for a long time and backed when you launched on Kickstarter. 48 hours before the end of the campaign a reminder email goes out to everyone who favorited you on Kickstarter. This should help you massively.

    Thank you for helping us out along the way, guys.

    Well, we happen to know some of the guys from the Owlcat games, we've reached out to them and they were really cool about it and helped us out.

    Well, the 48h reminder and the Pathfinder update did it.

    Great news! We did it! Ash of Gods is funded on Kickstarter! And there's still 2 days to go! And, of course, our hearty thanks to you, we wouldn't succeed without a support from community. You guys rock!

    You can read more about it in our latest Kickstarter update.

    Yep, that's our studio's founder, Nikolay.

    The Kickstart marathon is over, and we return to our usual schedule of publications: we will regularly share with you various materials of the game.

    We start with this video showing the process of recording of the vocals by Liz Catherine for one of the tracks for Ash of Gods.

    I want to share some news about developing the game. Ash of Gods' UI is almost finished, Juia implements the latest fixes, so you can expect screenshots pretty soon. Also there are cards and item icons on the way.

    Meanwhile, animators experiments with weather effects and particles. Also they animate characters, animals and enviroment. We will share the result as soon as there's something.

    A lot of time goes to creation of events. Every event should be as non-linear as possible to deliver new experience during your second or even third walkthrough. Also we testing the new build and working on English localization. We hope we can test the game with your help as soon as possible to get useful feedback.

    Meanwhile the very first batch of keycains came!

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Lots of them will go to their owners who supported us on Kickstarter or PledgeManager. But if you want to have this wonderful hand-made piece of art crafted by blacksmiths of famous Russian design studio "Yarilo", you still can do it here:

    https://aurumdust.pledgemanager.com/projects/ash-of-gods/participate/

    P.S. We also just get tubes to send printed A2 Ash of Gods posters safely. We will start to do it during the week.

    We continue to publish great news!

    We are feel like making Lo Pheng storyline even with our limited resources. I reckon we will be able to make 16 scenes minimum and approximately 3-4 hours of gameplay if we work hard. But to create the game in the way it was originally designed we will definitely need more time. At the moment we discussing a possibility to postpone the release to March, 2018.

    And we would like to hear your opinion on this matter. What do you think?

    If you have a solid storyline to develop, backers won't mind a couple extra months. Beware of "development creep" and be sure you get done in a timely fashion, but adding good stuff here and there is fine.
