Inner Chains was announced in September last year, immediately receiving attention from both the media and the gaming community. The interest the game generated was confirmed half a year later when Telepaths’ Tree launched the Kickstarter campaign for Inner Chains. Within just a week, Inner Chains had achieved its first goal of $10,000, and by the time the campaign was over the developers had managed to almost double this amount.
With such clear evidence of how much gamers liked the idea of Inner Chains, Telepaths’ Tree had to face a tough decision: whether to finish development on schedule, delivering what was promised, or to take some more time in order to bring FPS horror game fans out there a title that will be bigger in scale and richer in content, and that will truly meet gamers’ expectations.
We’ve spent long hours thinking what we should do – says Tomasz Strzałkowski, CEO of Telepaths’ Tree. On the one hand, we didn’t want to disappoint our Kickstarter backers’ trust. On the other, we’ve gathered almost twice as much money as we’ve asked for and nearly achieved our second stretch goal. This success clearly showed us that those who are waiting for Inner Chains actually want a more complex, more unique, and more challenging experience. That’s why in the end we decided to push back the launch date. But we’ve made this decision so that we’re actually able to deliver ALL the extra content that was promised in our stretch goals! So, as a thank you to all our backers, supporters, fans, and community members, we’re happy to announce that we’re adding 2 additional opponents to the game (1 human‑like and 1 animal-like), 3 more deadly plants you’ll need to watch out for, and a completely new additional alternative ending. On top of that, we’re also working on new gameplay solutions for the weapons you’ll have in hand and the way your arsenal will be upgraded. We’re positive that taking some more development time will allow us to deliver a truly unique game, which is what we set out to do from the very beginning – Strzałkowski added.
