Hi, everyone. Shiza here.
Release Day: July 7th
As per last week’s announcement, Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm will release on July 7th, and we would like to thank all of our supporters for your patience over the last year and a half that we spent working on the game.
Development ran a long time over schedule, but the extra work that went into the game has enabled us to further improve the quality. (We really haven’t been lazy all that time!)
The fact that we’ve been able to create this game with no capital, no production staff, and just a few individuals working on the game, is very much thanks to the people who have supported us. The funds raised by our crowdfunding supporters, the support of fighting gamers from around the world, and help from other supporters that gave us the strength to develop the game.
The Yatagarasu dev team has always aimed to create the game that we want to create, how we want to create it. Thanks to YOUR support and input, we’ve been able to do not only that, but to develop it into a game that can be played and enjoyed by many people. It has been our pleasure to create the game with your support. Thank you.
We are working on the various rewards for backers of the Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm IndieGogo campaign, and we have some updates about these below.
To allow as many people as possible to enjoy them, rewards that provide or affect the game content will be treated as ‘time limited exclusives’, and will be released to all players at some point after the game release.
