Hello everybody. It has been a long time since I made a post about the status of Teridal. The last status update was when I said I would no longer be working on Teridal on BYOND. It came out of nowhere and a lot of players were upset, which is understandable. As mentioned in that previous post, I had moved on to bigger things.
For many years now, I have been working on my own game creation service. It has progressed quite a bit, but sadly it is still unfinished due to not being able to work on it full time, mainly because a lack of funding (although it is getting very close to an open beta), so I started a Patreon to raise money so I can work on it full time.
I contemplated for awhile on whether I should make this post or not, mainly because it indirectly advertises my game creation service, which is a competitor of BYOND and asks for contributions for projects outside of BYOND, but I came to the conclusion that you, the fans, deserve to know what is going on with my projects and Teridal itself (no matter where the game is). I figured if some of the more hardcore Teridal fans knew that they could have contributed to get a remake of Teridal released faster and I did not tell them, they would have been disappointed.
Yes, you heard right! I am officially remaking Teridal. However, it is currently a side project until I get my game creation service polished up. But the more money I raise, the more time I will be able to put into the remake. I plan to have the game feel like the original Teridal in many areas, but it will of course be quite different (and better obviously). Hopefully I will not disappoint the fans!
With all that said, here is the Patreon page: http://patreon.com/Iccusion
The rewards aren't super great yet, but I can give rewards retroactively, especially to Teridal players who contribute for a long time. Patreon keeps records of all that and once the game releases, I can reward people based on how much they contributed, including premium membership in the new game and so on. Also, as things progress, I will be adding more rewards long before release, both for Teridal supporters and supporters of my game creation service.
I want to reiterate that the Teridal remake is a side project and work on my game creation service comes first, but that service is getting closer and closer to open beta, at which point I can put more time into the Teridal remake (not to mention, the more money coming in, the more spare time I will have to work specifically on the Teridal remake).
As for people who want some rewards in the current BYOND version of Teridal, if you pledge at least $5 and then private message me your email, amount pledged, and BYOND key, I will give you a lifetime subscription to the BYOND version of the game.
Long story short, I'm not dead, I'm still actively developing my game creation service and working on a Teridal remake (among other games, including personally helping other people make their games) on the side, but looking for support and contributions to speed things up!
Thanks in advance to anybody who contributes.
