Asylum unveils its "Kickstarter of Horrors"!

Here’s the dedicated post to discuss the ongoing Asylum Kickstarter campaign! It’s already doing great and we can barely stand the excitement!

First, the links:

Kickstarter Project: … the-horror

Kickstarter Video (HD):

We’re preparing major updates, but to quickly answer the most important questions:

  • Asylum will be 100% DRM-free, even through Steam (yes, it’s possible).
  • The $15 pledge already comes with the Steam key.
  • All physical tiers include shipping costs anywhere in the world. Much easier that way.
  • Working on subtitles for the video.
  • Yes, we will support Paypal donations eventually!

Stay tuned for a new video, lengthier updates, and more!

I’ll send some of my videogame budget once you support paypal!

Glad to help. But why a KS now?

Several reasons. Some potential publishing deals didn’t turn out the way we wanted, then we began to gain popularity on Steam and eventually decided to remain solo.

We’re on a shoestring budget now (and currently two of us actively working on the game!), so the Kickstarter is truly required.

Agustín, at last I saw you almost “personally”! Nice to meet you!! …and also have the pleasure of beeing at your “estudio en Buenos Aires”. Can’t wait for Asylum - passionately hope I could enjoy the game through our mother tongue: spanish.
Everything about Asylum, till now, is amazing.
By the way, what’s the procedure for sending money?
Un abrazo - Raúl

Hey Raúl, gracias! We’re absolutely going to translate Asylum to the español :nod:

I’m still looking for joining the Asylum Kickstar campaign - it’s just that don’t know how.
Would you please tell me? PayPal? Credit Card?

Credit Card via Amazon Payments, or Paypal, which we will be supporting soon!

Done. Pledge made. Good luck!

Thank you so much!

Seems to be going well so far. You won’t have to resort to selling cakes outside the next videogame event :stuck_out_tongue:

If there’s anything I can do to help you get the video subtitled or something like that, let me know.

As a matter of fact, yes, certainly could use some help. We have all the texts but I’m wondering if it’s possible to add them as subtitles to an already uploaded video. And which software would you use?

YouTube got support for captions and all, they list the formats and software here: … e=guide.cs

And an editor: … e=guide.cs

Very helpful, Nuxly! Thank you!

I hope somebody pledges to the ‘Dead Inmate’ tier, so I can visit the morgue and read about what caused them to end up there. :smirk:

Jeez, Agustin, you’re brave to start a Kickstarter campaign. You do realize it’s a short month? But, you’re off to a great start and deservedly so!

But the campaign still lasts 30 days! :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for your support :wink:

I will clarify that about the reward tiers later, there’s seems to be a slight confusion about one or two!

And you got close to 1/3 of the amount in less than 10 days so I suppose we can be optimistic :slight_smile:

Any progress with Paypal? :stuck_out_tongue:

Very optimistic, yes!

Paypal, soon!
