I want to talk real quick about why I’m providing a 100% Money Back Guarantee to those who preorder the game. I should have done this before but, to be honest, I didn’t expect anybody to preorder.
Why 100% Money Back Guarantee?
I have no games under my belt
Nobody knows me (I’ve never worked in the games industry before) therefore I have no credibility
There are currently no screenshots or game play for the game (January 2012), so you don’t know what you’re getting into.
Honestly, to sum it up, it doesn’t make much sense for anyone to preorder this game. Period.
Do I have to provide a money back guarantee? No. But I like providing it. Why? Because I can, it’s as simple as that.
I’m not a “company”, just a single developer. I have nobody to report to. I like to have a clear conscious, that’s all. I don’t want anybody coming up to me and saying, “I supported you when you didn’t have shit on your site because I like indie developers, I bought the game 10 months before the release and you deliver this abomination of a game? Pokemon is scarier than this! Is this how you thank your customers? You are the worst independent developer the world has ever seen. I hope you eat shit and die!”
You can get your money back anytime you want. It doesn’t matter if it’s before the release date or not, if you’ve played the game or not.
I don’t want to hijack anybody’s money. To make it crystal clear:
You can get your money back anytime you want for whatever reason. No questions asked. I’ll just stalk you from a safe distance that’s all.
On a side note: If I die or anything happens to me that prevents me from contacting you and completing the game, I’ve made the necessary arrangements for refunds. This may sound morbid but that’s the reality of developing a game as a single person.
But I want you folks to know, I’m truly dedicated to providing you with the best horror experience I can. Therefore if I die during the production of this game, I will come back from the grave and fuck with you as long as I can. And when you see me, you’ll shit bricks. That’s my promise.
You can choose to download the game through Steam (rather than here) when it comes out and get your achievements . To make things clear, you don’t need to buy the game again for achievements, your preorder entitles you to a Steam copy.
