Precursor's Dawn - Greenlit!
On the morning of Oct 18th, I received the email from Steam informing me that Precursor's Dawn had been Greenlit. Having spend all of the night and some of the morning awake promoting the game did not hear the notification of the email on my phone because I was asleep. However, my teammates were awake for it and began to spam Discord chat. Not seeing me behaving in a similar manner, within the channel, they included my handle every message to ensure I would get the news quickly. After, I think the fifth Discord ping I was up and stung out of bed to my desktop to ensure it wasn't a trick of exhaustion and a small screen. Sure enough the email had come in at 9:39 AM, just a few hours post crash.
The smile I had was enormous. The huge green banner with the words we had thought would take months to get were there, "This game has been Greenlit by the Community!"
The Moral Boost that seeing this on our Game Page was unimaginable!
We have been working feverishly to ensure we have a stable product for an Early Access Launch. Further updates with address this and look for feedback from anyone that has experience navigating these waters.
We want to thank everyone that stopped by the page, and especially those who voted. GameDev.net was a good source of traffic and feedback. We are thankful for the support this community of developers provided. I will be doing an expended analyst of the Greenlight Campaign. It will highlight what was done right and where we could have improved on. Hopefully, it will be a good resource for anyone gearing up for their own venture into the green light district of Steam.
Our Kickstarter Campaign is Running until Oct 27th, 9:30 PM (EST)
