Siren's Call: Week 3
on May 3, 2018, 9 a.m.
It's now been three weeks since the funding period for Siren's Call came to a close, and we've been keeping ourselves busy! We've received the funds, sent out the questionnaire and first round of PDF rewards and made great progress with the game's layout! The art keeps rolling in, and so far everything is on track.
In the next week we plan to send out the second round of PDF rewards. We also plan to keep making progress with the layout and art commissions. With any luck, the writing may begin on the pregenerated colonists as well.
