Before the figure they were asking for (70,000 euros) was exceeded, the study recounted their situation in a video published on the YouTube channel entitled ‘Creating games in a war zone’. In it, the developers explain how difficult it has been to deal with the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the uncertainty it has created.

Some members are serving in the militaryThey say that, despite the fact that Frogwares headquarters are located in kyiv, bombs have fallen nearby and even study members are serving in the military or in humanitarian aid associations. The fact that they ask for extra money is not because they cannot afford the development right now, it is to create a safety net that guarantees that they can finish it in the next few months.

In addition, they comment that they have been making games for many years and want to reward the very die-hard players in some way, with incentives that include up to put names and photos in the credits. In fact, some patrons will not only receive this remake of the 2006 game made with Unreal Engine 4, but will also be offered access to the next five-year releases carried out by the studio.
