With so many Kickstarter projects turning out to be failures over the recent months, any sign of distress for a Kickstarter project that you’ve backed can be cause for concern. Soul Saga was successfully funded a year ago today and was supposed to be released this month, but many backers have been wondering what’s going on with the developer and why we haven’t heard anything. Today an update was finally issued in which the lone developer of Disastercake has admitted he’s run into health problems while working on the project.
I missed you! How have you been? Soul Saga is moving along great. My personal health took a dip a few months ago when I became bed ridden from a ruptured disc in my spine. I have barely been able to walk, and unable to sit for about 3 months now. The doctor says I will probably need surgery. >.<
But don’t worry, I won’t do something like that until Soul Saga is done. I want to make sure I get a good game to you as soon as possible. I’ve acquired a laptop so I can work from bed since I can’t sit at my normal workstation. I’m still personally clocking in ~100 hours a week on Soul Saga, so there shouldn’t be any delays from my end of the project. Today is going to be a quick update clarifying an important element of the game.
Despite the bad news about the developers health, it’s nice to hear he’s still working on the game despite his personal state. Here’s a look at the dialogue as it will appear in the game.
