I come to you with
a very, very, unpleasant news of that caused me to be still in shock.
have to cancel the current campaign on Kickstarter for reasons beyond our
Kickstarter (Kickstarter isn’t still available in every country), we used the
services of Bridgestarter, as we mentioned during our pre-campaign (link here).
However, two days ago we received a message from Bridgestar with additional
condition changes. It was evocated with the Kickstarter rules. Unfortunately, we haven’t understood the report correctly till this morning. After multiple exchanging emails with Bridgestarter, we fully understand the implications of the message.
original conditions we had - when Bridgestarter gather funding from Pledgers -
receive arranged amount of money collected on Kickstarter so we could have used
the money to produce Rewards and to start the project. Well, conditions have
changed and now we got some money from Kickstarter only AFTER we have produced
rewards and delivered it to all pledgers.
understand that this is not simply possible. We wanted to run our campaign on
KS precisely because KS is here to help people to start their cool projects. That
is the main sense of crowdfunding – other people support projects they think
From morning We
tried to find or invent an acceptable alternative, but we failed .
I want to make it
clear - I do not blame the Bridgestarter company. Change of conditions is
official as can be seen on their site. However, for us, this condition is
unacceptable. We need money from the Kickstarter campaign just to start the
production and launch the project. New conditions may pay off for companies
that take Kickstarter as a pre-sale platform and they have their own strong
economic base. Well it is not our case because we want bring you something new.
We will try to
gain access to KS another way, but – unfortunately - it looks like we will have
to run the project on Indiegogo. This is less popular platform. We'll need much
more time for promotion, and we want to finish all the bonus pieces, too. We
want to be as ready as we can be before we go on Indiegoo. And as the holidays
begin, it would not be wise to start the campaign in these times.
Indiegogo campaign will start probably sometime in the mid-September. Let us
strive to know all the possibilities we have. Very soon, no later than next
Monday, we will bring you more specified information.
We apologize for
all the occured troubles. This delay is not really caused by us and we are
still in shock ourselves. We put everything into this project. We still believe
in it and honestly ask all of you who we have managed to attract with it to
persevere and help us..
If we caused anyone troubles, we
apologize very hereby. We will do our best to work it up to a successful end,
and we thank all of you who have supported us and who come here. Thank you.
Please, stay with
Daniela and Arkhareon Team
