    Let me clarify - Twisted & Perverted is a world where kills give you points. The most proficient combo is killing someone while climaxing. It's a case from the book, so I understand it's hard to understand from the video. This is why Fredo shouldn't be in this game in the first place - he's just too young to experience stuff like this.

    I agree. I'm just an old grumpy fuck.

    I don't know why but this project rubs me the wrong way. Visually is already good but I simply cannot imagine it delivering on the narrative side.

    I'm out.

    Where are you located? 50k USD is relatively small amount of money to make CRPGs, do you have other source for funding?

    Studio is located in Katowice, Poland. We have secured a budget, but additional funding will allow us to do some of the more expensive stuff to expand the game. But the main reason for going to KS was:

    Looks great. And an investigative RPG is right up my alley.

    But how do I know it's quality?

    I am so going to fund this, just need to escape the asylum in time. The asylum is where all the sane people go while all the nutjobs are running the world.

    matt: Can the deadline be postponed with another month? 60 days instead of 30?

    You're not the only one asking - we're thinking about an additional form of backing but we're not going to extend the Kickstarter. We have a production timeline we have to follow and after the campaign is completed, we will distribute additional funds accordingly. We also have a beta to prepare, and we don't want to rush anything.

    For you, dying is nothing. Like a game character, you just respawn.

    That is very well put, Sir! Our CEO always says that we shouldn't rush nor crunch. We have a strick no-crunch policy. Craft is the word we use a lot in Anshar.

    What's the original language of the script? Polish or English?

    I don't mean to be a dick about it, honest, but I'm getting major 'Russian game poorly translated into English' vibes from the gameplay you've shown, and your Kickstarter page reads about the same to me. Takes me right back to the fallow years about two decades ago, and that's not nostalgia I'm particularly eager to revisit. English that doesn't sound like English is a hard pass for me in what's supposed to be a narrative-driven crpg.
