Newsletter #4: May 2015

Thanks for Subscribing! We've got some big news!

Kickstarter Campaign Countdown is ON!

Shape of the World will be launching its Kickstarter Campaign on Monday, June 1st. We hope to raise enough funds so we can release the game in Summer 2016 on both PC and exclusively on Xbox One.

Our Kickstarter Campaign will feature a new trailer consisting entirely of in-game footage and we can’t wait for you to see it, but we will unfortunately make you wait until June 1st while we compile the final touches and sound effects.

Counting Up to the Top 100 on Steam Greenlight:

In preparation for our Kickstarter campaign, we’ve added Shape of the World to Steam Greenlight. While the mechanics of Greenlight are a bit of a mystery, one thing we know for sure is that the more votes we have the better. Please vote for us so we can get the game into your hands! Your support has already put it in the Top 20 of over 1,500 current submissions.

Our Core Team is Ready to Go!

As you know, Shape of the World is being developed by a small team of experienced artists and technicians in Vancouver, Canada. Stu Maxwell, a VFX artist at Microsoft’s local Black Tusk studio, is leading a core team including Athomas Goldberg (animation and simulation technical artist) and Brent Silk (sounds FX and music). Detailed bios are available on our website. We will be adding more team members as the game goes into full-scale production mode, which we hope to do as soon as the campaign wraps up.

Why Kickstarter?

Kickstarter isn’t just a way to fund the financial support we need for the game, it’s a great way to connect with and reward our fans. We’ve already spent almost a year putting in a lot of hard work behind the scenes. We’ve laid the groundwork and now we need your help to bring the project to fruition. Launching a Kickstarter campaign gives us the support and momentum we need to carry the project through to its release date. Building a community is just as helpful as your pledges.

How Can You Contribute?

We would love your support by spreading the world through all your favourite types of social media. Follow us on Twitter, share our gifs on Tumblr, vote for us on Greenlight and tell your friends on Facebook. The more money we raise the quicker we can achieve our stretch goals which means a better gaming experience for fans like you.


Thanks Again & See you on June 1st!
(Don't worry, we'll send out a friendly reminder!)
