After 5.5 years of development we are very excited to announce the Legends of Eisenwald release date! It will be available July 2 2015 (a few friends told us a year is a must here given our history).
We want to say thank you to all of you for making this possible! Without support of our Kickstarter backers and without you who bought our game in Early Access this game might not have materialized.
We are also very happy to present you a cinematic video that we released today to celebrate the announcement.
The history of making this video dates all the way back to 2012 when we were in the middle of our Kickstarter campaign. Our technical director and main visionary Nikolay Armonik thought that making a cinematic video was bound to attract a lot of attention to our campaign. He started working a lot and created a draft of the video but the scope of it was too much for our small team to handle, especially since this is not our profession. Ressa, our composer, composed a beautiful track and recorded a song based on Nikolay’s poem. The draft remained and we kept hoping we would finish it. Last spring we found an animation studio in Spain, Digital Mind (dgmind.com) and they were really excited to help us out. All characters in this video and many of the models and animations are from in-game assets. Fortunately for us, the folks at Digital Mind were able to use our assets which significantly lowered production costs.
Thank you for your patience as development took way longer than we expected – we did not anticipate being so long in Early Access. But we are incredibly happy to bring the game to completion. Please accept our deepest apologies for this tremendous delay but we hope you will enjoy the game and you will get the great experience you were hoping for when you bought our game and supported us. Those of you who played little or maybe even disliked our game – we are hoping you will give the game another chance when it releases.
Thank you for your support.
All of us at Aterdux
