We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the fans and backers for helping us create the game we always wanted to make and one that fittingly concludes the trilogy so well,” said John Watson, Technical Director of Stoic.
“The end has come... and it’s hard to fathom that this award winning series has come to its conclusion,” said Steve Escalante, founder of Versus Evil. “This trilogy is for those that have been waiting for all three games, now is the time to jump in. We started this adventure with Stoic, nearly five years ago and we couldn’t be more proud of the wonderful partnership we have forged on this amazing series. Congratulations to the Stoic team and their supporters. Together you have all created one of the greatest indie titles of our time.”
