Looking Back at the Year that Was and a Peek Ahead

Looking Back at the Year that Was and a Peek Ahead -

The latest (and long!) Chronicles of Elyria update has been penned and gives a look back at 2016 along with a peek ahead at 2017. The letter starts off with a brief discussion of how the team has grown to more than ten and that the company has moved in to spiffy new digs that will be able to house as many as twenty.

From there, the letter goes on to look at where initial funding for CoE came from and how more will be raised in 2017:

What's going to happen next year? It's hard to say. But what I can say is we will continue to keep our online store open for residual income, and we've already been approached by multiple publishers and investors. We're in a good place right now financially and have more money than we expected at this point in the development process. We're also in no rush to make deals, and are instead holding out for the right deal for us - and the right deal for you guys.

Other topics in the retrospective include: Published updates, conventions attended, growing the community, updates about what the team has adapted workflows to create the game itself and a commitment to the future of the game:

Seeing where we are today, with videos, screenshots, regular play-through, etc., it's easy to forget that just 12 months ago we were a team of four guys working out of a basement. We've grown so much this year, and achieved more than I can even put in a single blog post. Each member of the team has had to stretch him or herself in new ways, gain new skills, and become better than they were before.
