“We’ve done it! With the help of our thousands of dedicated, passionate, and generous backers we’ve raised over $1.3 million dollars to bring System Shock back to life!” raves Nightdive Studio’s CEO, Stephen Kick after we gloriously counted down the final moments of our Kickstarter campaign. Our team had just wrapped up not only a 30 day non-stop adventure on Kickstarter, but also a last 24 hour livestream on Twitch until the campaign closed. He continues, “These last 30 days have been a wild ride but we’ve enjoyed every moment of it. From reading your comments, answering your questions, and interacting with you on Discord and Twitch it’s been an experience we’ve enjoyed more than anything else. It’s clear from the overwhelming outpouring of support that System Shock means so much to so many people and we’re extremely honored that you’ve chosen us – and entrusted us with the monumental task of remaking one of, if not the greatest game of all time. No pressure! We couldn’t have done it without you and look forward to having you join us as we embark on our return voyage to Citadel Station! Again…from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!”
We all share congratulatory hugs, cupcakes, and margaritas (hey it was a long month) as we all breath a sigh of relief and suppress our yawns from having not slept in at least 2 days. Finally time to sign off of our 24 hours live Twitch stream. We all looked GREAT.
