    The Realms Beyond Kickstarter successfully concluded today, having raised €120,709 from 2,653 backers. The community really came together in the final hours, busting through the second & third stretch goals and securing the participation of writers Casey Hollingshead & Scott Hamm and composer Kai Rosenkranz. Here's the victory update from Ceres:

    Phew, what a month! Those last thirty campaign days have been a proper rollercoaster ride and felt more like half a year. But losing sleep, going a bit more grey and not seeing much of the world outside has all been worth it. The show of your support just knocked our socks off!
    We’re lost for words to thank everyone. We’ve said it so many times, but can’t really repeat it often enough: THANKS!

    Without all the 2648 backers from the US, Germany, UK, Canada, France, Australia, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Belgium, China and many, many more countries, nothing would have happened. But with all of you, this campaign has been a resounding success! We still can’t believe that the campaign has been funded 120%. It was fully funded three days ago and we smashed three stretch goals! We’re more than excited to get stuck in to carry on working with our team, including Edwin Pickett and the people at OnlySound, and of course with Francesca on the map, Casey and Scott on the writing and Kai on additional sound tracks.

    All your comments, questions and feedback have been invaluable.
    Now begins the long wait for the combat beta, early access and final release. I'm told that there are more updates planned that Ceres didn't have time to get to during the campaign, but in the immediate term, they intend to set up a Backerkit site so that people can continue pledging. Maybe we can still get that Monk stretch goal at some point.

    I like the stretch goals...think they will add a lot of polish to the game, looking forward to the release but not the long wait.

    Any idea how much of the game is complete? Early Access "late 2019" seems a bit far off. Would be much more inclined to back if Early Access was granted upfront - as it seems there a decent chunk of something playable.

    I like their confidence though. Gameplay footage looks promising.

    I wish the could've gotten Guildenstern as well.
    His presence will be sorely missed.
