Black Book Achieves Kickstarter Funding, Announces New Stretch Goals

Russian developers Morteshka revealed a new set of Kickstarter goals for their game Black Book after they achieved full funding. The company launched the fundraising campaign to help fund their project and get the game made in hopes of either self-publishing or finding a major publisher once it's done. The original goal was $35k, pretty modest for an indie title that's been in the works for four years. But fans smashed that goal and, as of when this article is being written, they achieved over $100k. Now the developers are setting up new goals, which you can read below, to add new content into the game and make it a richer experience. But of course, those goals require money to make, so they go all the way up to $200k with less than two weeks to go. Feel free to donate if you can as they are slowly climbing as a team of five to make this passion project that's been a long time in the works.
