Hello everyone,

I am trying to put together some kind of global announcement for everyone.
Here is what went down.

We went live with our games being published on STEAM.
3 days later I found myself with a "volume" being 150 times bigger than what we call "business as usual". I would like to personally thank to everyone for helping create a success on such a giant scale.
I am still trying to figure out what happened.
All of YOU just turned my indie game development studio, in something BIG.
This is the main reason why lately our support is lagging behind the usual service times.
I am working to slowly bring everything back on track.

Here is a brief list of what will and what will not happen:

- We will continue to deliver the same games, made with passion, and the same personal level of service. Nothing in the way the studio works, will change.

- There will be some delays with various projects (the upcoming HED, etc), tech support, etc, until we accommodate with the new volume. I am personally working around the clock to smooth this out

- I got increase the budget for our upcoming game by a huge amount. This will lead to 2 major things: A better game, and we get to keep the small price. Even though the industry is heading for $50 games, we we will make a 5 times bigger game, and release it at the same price as we did 3 years ago.

- We will be better represented at industry events, so look out for us. We will give out autographed CD's, T-shirts and all the goodies everyone is accustomed to.

Thank you again.

I will see that most of this success is reflected in the quality of games and services we will offer from now on.

Just kidding around! ;)

Congratulation to your success.
Hope we'll see you then on Gamescom 2011!!!

@Hyphon;

exosyphen has never been about the money. Yes, it did pay me a good paycheck since day one.

I went out to celebrate a bit with some very close friends. We got pretty drunk in a cheap college bar drinking cheap beer. At one time, one of them made a statement, regarding me: "This guy could probably buy the whole bar, and yet he acts like NOTHING happened." I have seen firsthand what money can do to people, and I really want to stay away from all that.

Let's make games and have a blast of fun :)

And YES. most definitely we will be present at all major events in the gaming industry.
