509 backers pledged $32,398.66 on Kickstarter

Full Quiet is our latest game for the NES and PC. Something has taken your son, you must venture deep into the forest to find him. This game will be an entirely new experience, different from anything that we've attempted up to now and different from anything in the NES catalog. We're going to do our best to bring you something that will challenge you in new ways and bring you into a mysterious, enigmatic world of forgotten lore. Deep within the forest you'll encounter strange, cryptic creatures and beasts.. some who will help you, some who wish to destroy everything that you hold dear. The adventure begins one morning when you find that something has taken your son; you must find him, eradicate those who have taken him from you and restore order to the forest. Along the way you'll have to upgrade your equipment, learn the mysteries of the forest and its unknown inhabitants, solve puzzles, hunt down enemy creatures, befriend helpful creatures and craft new objects to accomplish your mission.. to find your son and silence the forest.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Surveys & Lookout Points
about 1 month ago – Thu, Dec 21, 2017 at 10:55:25 PM

Surveys - Surveys are being sent today!! Please fill yours out ASAP, especially if you want a Limited Edition cartridge. REMINDER: Kickstarter backers can just upgrade to the LE cart for $10.00, you don't have to buy a separate copy. As we stated before, there's a limit of one LE cart per person. If you want an LE and a standard edition cart you can upgrade to the LE and add-on another standard cart. We will be adding more goodies to the backerkit as they are developed. As always, Kickstarter backers get first dibs on anything we offer through Backerkit and your orders will be the first fulfilled when the game is released. 

If you know anyone who may be interested in supporting us please send them this Backerkit link: https://fullquiet.backerkit.com

Lookout Points - Below is an example of one of the lookout points in the game. When you come to one of these lookouts you will be treated to a view of the land. These will serve several purposes, e.g. to help orient yourself as you traverse through the different areas of the game, to give a quick survey of the lands ahead and as vantage points to monitor activities in distant locations. You may even get lucky and see something you want to snipe ;)

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and again we thank you for your support!! 

Backerkit "Smoke Test" Sent
about 1 month ago – Tue, Dec 12, 2017 at 05:19:45 PM

Quick update to let everyone know that we finally got everything properly flown in and set up with Backerkit. We just learned that for campaigns with over 500 backers they require a "smoke test" to verify that the surveys are working properly. A randomly selected 5% of backers should have just received their survey, please fill those out ASAP so that we can send them to the remaining 95% of backers. As soon as we get enough surveys back to confirm the accuracy of everything we can send them out to everyone else.

Thanks again for your patience while we navigated this!  

Keep the Ideas Coming
about 2 months ago – Wed, Nov 29, 2017 at 09:03:44 AM

Just posting a quick update here to show a few of the things we've been working on and to thank everyone for the ideas you keep sending to us. It's very cool to hear about all the things you'd like to see/do in this game. We also really love some of the controller ideas that backers have sent us and while most of them are beyond the scope of this project we are taking them into consideration for the future. 

For the next few months the majority of the work we do will continue to be behind the scenes stuff, in particular figuring out how to handle all the terrain types that we want to include which includes things like water, ropes and ladders. We're also mapping out some of the puzzles and working them into the backstory. These are also the kind of things that we can't post on here because we'd be spoiling elements of the game. It's going to be a fine line between keeping backers informed and not spoiling things. With that in mind here's two sections of the game that we're currently working on. As you can see in the swamp area we are attempting to have multiple paths which is another element of the terrains that we have to incorporate.

The other thing we'd like to address in this update is the Steam keys for the Digital Collection backers. We're not quite ready to launch the Backerkit but if you do not want to wait for the surveys to go out and you want your keys for Haunted: Halloween '85 and '86 now just shoot us a private message and we'll send them to you. 

And in case you missed it, there's another new NES game live on Kickstarter! It's always awesome to see more new NES games being made and new homebrewers joining this great community. Please check it out here and show Ryan some love: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1075045484/tower-defense-1990-a-new-nes-game

Silver Cartridge LEs, Backerkit and Surveys

***Concept Art - Subject To Change***

First, thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at PRGE this past weekend!! It was really awesome to chat with all of you and to hear your thoughts and ideas about Full Quiet.

LEs - The silver shell sample is in and boy howdy does it look nice and shiny!! We're still working on the label design but the above images should give you an idea of where we're headed. We plan to get a nice metallic label to match the metallic silver shell. We'll post finalized artwork later once we have the LE box designed. These will be limited to one per person, just choose the $10 upgrade when you fill out your survey.

Backerkit - Due to the all-positive feedback we got we've decided to move forward with Backerkit. Since we're still very early in development we will be posting new things to Backerkit as we design them, e.g. T-Shirts, Posters, Stickers, Specialized Pancake Eating Utensils, etc...
You can add these items to your initial pledge through backerkit very soon, we should be all set up and approved next week. As we stated earlier, we will ship all Kickstarter backer rewards and add-ons first before we move on to other orders. 

Surveys - These will be done through Backerkit and should go out next week once we're set up. Please fill them out ASAP so we can get an idea of how many of you want LEs. Throughout the dev process please be on the lookout for updates about new items that we make available through backerkit. 

We'll make another update to announce when the Backerkit is live. Thanks for your patience while we get all this figured out!!

Sample Shells Due Next Week
3 months ago – Thu, Oct 19, 2017 at 12:05:23 PM

We have multiple sample shell colors slated for delivery next week, including the silver ones. Once they arrive we'll post another update to show you how they look with our idea for the LE label. Hopefully by that time Kickstarter will have finished collecting payments and we can send out the surveys to all backers. 

Speaking of surveys, we're considering using Backerkit this time around. We're a little apprehensive about doing so because we don't want our backers to feel slighted in any way. If we do use Backerkit it will allow people who missed the campaign to support the project as well as allow us to create merch that you current backers can easily add on to your orders at any time. While this is cool and helps us continue to reach new people it does feel a little strange since the campaign ended already. We'd really love to hear from you all as to whether or not you feel this is fair of us to continue to offer the game and merch through Backerkit. Please keep these points in mind:

1. Orders placed through Backerkit will not be Kickstarter editions. Like we did with our previous campaign we will be printing separate labels, pins, stickers and shirts for Kickstarter backers only that state that they are for backers or are first pressings (see image below). These will not be available to anyone besides backers so the Backerkit would effectively be pre-orders for the standard versions of these items.

2. You will get your stuff first! We'll make sure we ship all Kickstarter backers their items before we ship the Backerkit orders. 

3. Backerkit will not have any Ham Radio Buddies, test carts or other exclusive offers from the Kickstarter campaign.

We'd love to hear your feedback on this, please speak up if you think this isn't cool of us! 

I would also like to point out this Kickstarter campaign by two-time backer #1 on our campaigns: www.tinyurl.com/snesbook
Jeff always supports homebrews and everything else NES related so please show him some love and check out his campaign.
