Well, it’s not really a day after but I thought the title fits the previous blog title “A day before the release” :)
4 days passed since the game launched on Steam Early Access and I get lots of questions about sales, crashes and how was the launch in general and I’ll be answering these questions and sharing more of my thoughts about everything.
So, I’ve decided to write few lines how I feel about the tomorrow’s release of the Courier of the Crypts on Steam Early Access. I pretty much have mixed feelings and a lot of thoughts next to tired eyes and mind.
Here’s the Steam game page if you missed it
First of all, I don’t think I realize the big step I’m taking tomorrow with the game. After 4 years of the development of a single game this is huge and maybe part of me still don’t realize that. Tomorrow, in the time of writing, game will be out in the world available to every player and this is something I’m really nervous about.
If you want to read more about mixed feelings, thoughts and my situation, read on :)
After all the years of the development I proudly announce that Courier of the Crypts is getting on Steam Early Access this Thursday – May 21st! :D

There was no blog post in a while because I was working on numerous fixes (bugs, crashes) and polishing details for the game. I’ve decided to write a new blog post mainly because I need to supply some information about Early Access because everyone who pre-ordered the game are wondering WHEN is that time of release.
I’m happy to announce that Courier of the Crypts opened its doors for pre-orders.
Support the development by pre-ordering the game for a discounted price and gain extra perks as an early supporter. Every tier grants your name written in the credits as well as Steam key and DRM Free copy of the game when available.
>>> Check out details and PRE-ORDER today!
Pre-orders and extra perks will last until the start of the early access phase!
Early access is planned for the March 2015 with regular updates after that. Hopefully, the game will be finished in late 2015.
You can choose from 3 different tiers, each offering more perks.
If you have any further questions please let me know in the comments :)
In less than two weeks I’ll start accepting pre-orders for the Courier of the Crypts via Humble Store Widget. Get ready for the February 17th everyone! As I’ve mentioned previously, pre-orders will be opened until the early access release on Steam which will follow in 2 or 4 weeks max.
Why pre-ordering before the early acces?
- Get a game for a discounted price (even lower than the early access)
- Be in the credits as an early supporter
- Get extra limited perks by picking silver or gold tier
All pre-orders will get Steam key once the game reaches the early-access phase. I’ll do my best to add even more options since I realize not everyone uses Steam as their primary platform.
Also, I want to use this blog post to tell you all a bit more about my plans and what will the early-access include because I’m sure you all want to know that.
I just wanted to share this great news with all of you. Courier of the Crypts will start accepting pre-orders for the early access very soon. In the time of pre-orders, you’ll be able to pick one of 3 tiers – basic, silver, gold. Eeach one of them will offer extra perks for your purchase.
Few days ago, on 11th of November, the Indiegogo campaign for the game failed with only 33% funded (3,342€). Like some of you I’m a bit bitter about the outcome of the campaign as well. Was I prepared for fail? Of course, but I’m optimistic type of the person and I had high hopes for the game. For about a week or so I disappeared to relax from 2 months of rush, to get my mind straight and prepare for the future. I got many messages asking weather I’m ok. Yes, I’m ok and ready to kick ass, thanks for your concern :)
This is just one failure of many yet to come. Let me remind you that great things also happened ;)
