Less Than 70 hours Left!

Hey everyone! We're a little less than 3 days away from the end of our campaign. You guys and girls have been absolutely amazing. We wouldn't be here without you. 

The Sun Nibbler

But we're not done yet! Today we are announcing a new stretch goal and it's one we're very excited about. We call it the "Sun Nibbler" It's an orb that accompanies you throughout your journey and gives you the power of the sun in your hands. This will be unlocked at the 100k milestone. You can read all about the Nibbler below.

Backer Reward Updates

You guys have been awesome at unlocking those backer rewards. Here are a few you are soooooo close to unlocking. You can do it!

42 followers away on Twitter.

65 likes away on Facebook.

88 Backers away to hit 1,750

ONLY 2 more fan art submissions needed. These are awesome guys, we're loving them!

Twitch Stream Tomorrow

Tomorrow at 2pm EST we will have our last team twitch stream of the Kickstarter campaign. But don't worry, we're going to keep it going even after the campaign is over. Never let a good thing go we say!

Indie Shoutout! 

If you like Deadwood (and you must if you're reading this.) Then you really should give Little Devil Inside a look. The art style is amazing and the gameplay is described as an "exploration focused survival action RPG game" That sounds pretty dang fun to us. Give 'em some love!

TEAM 17 is now part of the team?

We have some awesome news for you guys today. We can finally announce that we have partnered with Team 17 over in jolly 'ol England! These guys and gals have been making awesome games like Worms, Alien Breed, and Superfrog for over 25 years. Quite simply, they know their stuff. With their love and support we are more confident than ever that we can make Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse the game we've always wanted to make. 

You've already seen some of the great things they can do for us. Just recently we combined our console stretch goals into one. This is something that wouldn't have been possible without them.  They are here to support us in anyway we need. And the best thing about it is we didn't have to sell our souls! These guys aren't your everyday evil publishers. We will retain 100% ownership of the IP and full creative freedom. They just want Deadwood to be as awesome as we do.

Now let's finish strong! We have 7 days left and there's still some stretch goals we need to take care of. Let's do it guys!

Rollin' On,

Also congrats on over 1,000 Likes on Facebook!!! That means another Backer Goal unlocked! Digital Art Book for EVERYONE!

Thank you everyone for all your wonderful support! We look forward to delivering you our next update! Look out for it! =)

PS4 and Xbox One Unlocked

Platform Clarification 

Now that we have reached our Xbox One and PS4 stretch goal of $80k, let's talk about how you get it.

We've added a "console upgrade" option to our Add-On store. This will allow you to upgrade your Steam key to either XBOX One or PS4. Bonus: You get to keep your Steam key. The cost to upgrade is $5. This helps cover some of the cost levied on us by Microsoft and Sony to give out codes. Trust us, we wish we could give them away for free. When Kickstarter ends, everyone will be receiving a survey where you'll specify which console key you desire. 

Backer Achievement Updates

Congrats on completing multiple Backer Achievements! We received some awesome fan art and tree huggin' photos this weekend AND broke 1500 Backers! Thank you all for your wonderful support! 

We have unlocked my personal favorite Backer Goal...Rebel Alternative Rebel Skins. Onwards to the next one, and May the fourth be with you! 

And if that wasn't good enough for you, we've also unlocked the Digital Art Book that will be available for everyone!

 This is how close we are to unlocking 2 MORE

Only 9 more days to go! Keep up the awesome support!

Shout Out!

If you like games with dynamic duos (and you must since you backed Deadwood) then you'll LOVE the new game from our talented friends at Playtonic Games. They are reviving the platform genre with their Kickstarter project Yooka-Laylee

These are the guys behind Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country, so if you liked those you'll dig this. Check em out, they need help on their struggling Kickstarter. Just kidding, they're killing it.

New (and revised) Stretch Goals!
over 5 years ago – Thu, May 14, 2015 at 08:28:23 AM

PS4 and Xbox One Together at last!

 First up, we're very excited to announce that we are combining the PS4 and Xbox One stretch goals. Just over a thousand clams and we'll have unlocked BOTH consoles. How can we give you two consoles for the same low price? Well we have some more BIG news we'll be sharing next week.

Dungeons, Undergrounds and Caves... Oh My!

Replacing the former Xbox One slot at the 95k slot is something we're VERY excited about. Dungeons are a big part of RPGs and it's something we really want to put in the game. Imagine all the weird creatures you might encounter (ie: wooden mole rats). Something else you should know... Roguard is afraid of the dark, so these will be areas you can truly test your offensive abilities... alone.

New Backer Goals!

We teased the "Saw Mauler" yesterday, now you can check out all of the other new backer goals. Keep unlocking these guys, we've got even more awesome stuff coming down the pipe. Oh and here's a better look at the Saw Mauler in case you  missed it yesterday.

 That's it for today. Stay tuned for more cool stuff!

Rollin On,

Steamroller Studios
