Is Devastated Dreams dead?

since I really enjoyed Neverending Nightmares and played the demo of Devastated Dreams, it seems to be a very important game and I gladly wants the project to get continued. There are any plans to make Devastated Dreams final and publish it?

Or is there a chance to get the current full-length game for download?

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been pretty bad about keeping up with social networking.

For the time being, Devastated Dreams is on hiatus. We are working on some other cool things! Would I love to see Devastated Dreams made? Yes, definitely, but I don't think there was enough consumer interest on kickstarter to create the game that we were planning to make. We also approached a publisher that has been interested in our past work, but they weren't interested in the project unfortunately.

Could plans change for it? Yeah. If some of our other projects show that the market is ready for the game, then we could resume work on it. I wouldn't hold your breath though. :(

Being an indie developer is hard from a financial perspective. It takes a lot of time/money to make a cool game, and you are competing with thousands of other products for consumer attention... It seems like Devastated Dreams had trouble standing out as something worth people's money. :-/

Too bad to hear about Devastated Dreams, it does seem like it's in a difficult spot due to the style of game. I'm sure you've heard the criticisms about the gameplay and all that, from the reactions I've seen online there's just not enough interest for the specific type of game it is. I loved the experience of Neverending Nightmares and watching the project develop, so I was fully ready to see DD work and expand on that a little bit, but it looks like I was in the minority with the other fans around here. It did seem to generate a bit of a following on Steam too though, from what I've seen there were some dedicated fans that probably never made it to the message boards.

Good to hear you're doing some other projects, I hope you'll keep everyone up to date as I'd be really interested to see what you guys come up with. Are you going in a different direction, if you can you say much about it at this point?

Sorry for the delay. I haven't been checking the message board lately because there hasn't been much activity. I don't want to announce anything, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Neverending Nightmares on more platforms in the future. :) That was always planned, but I didn't have much time to work on that. Beyond that, I'm not sure. I'm still exploring my options!
