It's a new year and things are heating up for Em-8ER once again. After getting community feedback about low framerates, we went back to optimize our internal test build for much better results. So much better, that we decided to test them on a $250 PC that we built from scratch to help us optimize the game.


Tune in for our next update where we go over what is happening with the upcoming Terrain Build of Em-8ER!

I believe I know what is happening here. Grummz did at one point have about 1 milliion dollars of funding for a game. This was however for his last game called Voxelnauts. Grummz left the project after what I could only imagine was hell with investors. Ideas they had for the game were very much out of touch. I won't go into details as I signed an NDA. Grummz left the project but didn't take the money with him. The team was left to keep working on the game. I hope this clears up any confusion.
They never raised 1M. They tried to do a Kickstarter for 100k but failed, then the investor sued the remaining team. I had left long before they did their KS.

We've not yet done a major raise of funds for Em8ER. We've had the indiegogo rounds, as well as the ongoing newcomer packs, which we have not advertised. They are not even listed on our main website.

We're working towards a Kickstarter with our Playable Mockup coming early next year.
