Today, we’ve made two additions to our website. Firstly, there’s a newsletter to make it easier to follow the development, and secondly, we’ve set up a forum where you’re welcome to discuss everything relating to Train Fever.
After a long crowdfunding campaign, we not only secured funding but also gathered a lot of fantastic feedback, suggestions and challenging questions. In addition, we successfully started to establish a fan community around the world.
Huge thanks to all supporters. You all have contributed to make Train Fever a reality!
Your support and confidence is an obligation for us to give our best during the final year of development. You can be sure that we go to our limit in order to make Train Fever a great transport simulation game and a financial success.
We would like to point out that the success of Train Fever is also a success of Gambitious. We believe that the Gambitious model is an awesome way for independent game developers to attract funding and we are excited that Train Fever is the first successful game on this platform!
Development will start soon and Train Fever is scheduled to be released in May 2014.
We currently work out how to incorporate and update the community during the final year of development.
We are excited that the crowdfunding campaign is doing very well and that in all likelihood we can realize Train Fever. If you plan to do an additional investment, please consider to do this as early as possible. Crowdfunding campaigns typically speed up towards the end.
Currently we are in negotiations with several potential publishing partners and we are very close to make a final deal. This is good news for all fans and investors, because with making a deal as soon as possible we can minimize risk. We can fully concentrate on the development, and the publishing partner can already prepare an optimal marketing and distribution strategy.
We look forward to developing a great game with the goal to meet the demands of the transport simulation community and to make it a financial success for all crowdfunding investors!
We are pleased to announce that we were able to secure €50.000 from an institutional investor! Furthermore, the funding deadline has been extended until Sunday, March 31.
Please find the complete announcement on Gambitious.
Today, a new video about Train Fever was released on the tom.io YouTube channel. This video and interview is in German and has a length of nearly 30 minutes. Tom is presenting the game and is asking questions about game-play, the team and the Gambitious campaign. The channel is renowned as a platform for simulation games and has an excellent reputation in the community. More than 7,000 people are following. It’s an honor for Train Fever to be present there already in pre-alpha stage.
