Ananias Crowdfunding campaign relaunched!

It’s been a month since we received the last contribution to the campaign; it has definitively stalled and that has prompted us to act.

We have launched a new improved campaign, we took things off and made adjustment so that there could be a new doable scope with reduced funds.

This is the link to the new campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ananias-roguelike-revenge, please take a look, contribute and share!

As you may know, the original campaign was fixed funding, which means we have not received any money from the previous contributions. New campaign is flexible funding which will allow us to advance into the development of the game at a greater pace.

We continue working hard to make Ananias a reality!

Thank you, and please share the campaign!
