The SolarFall Games team got to finally celebrate the successful conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign for Umbra, its Crytek-based action-RPG, and kicked off a press release to inform us of the occasion, noting that a new webstore for the title is open. For a limited time, it will be still possible to still get the Kickstarter reward tiers:
Webstore Now Open Complete With Kickstarter Tiers
For A Limited Time
June 15 2015 - Nice, France - SolarFall Games' ARPG, Umbra, has finished its Kickstarter campaign at an incredible $406,979 - 181% funded and is now the highest grossing Kickstarter campaign, for a videogame, from France to date!
"We are absolutely flabbergasted at funding to such an incredible total on Kickstarter. We'd like to thank every backer for their pledge, support and the sharing of our campaign, every YouTube & Twitch streamer who covered our prototype and all of the journalists for writing such awesome articles about Umbra." said Daniel Dolui, Lead Programmer and Game Director at SolarFall Games. "We would like to invite those of you who were unable to pledge on our campaign, to check out our webstore and now, we have promises to keep and work to do!"
The campaign may have finished, but you can still support the game via the new Umbra webstore, where, for a limited time, buyers can still support the game, complete with backer rewards from the Kickstarter.
All funds collected via the Umbra webstore will continue to go towards the further stretch goals that were not achieved during the Kickstarter campaign! Please note that the Paypal payment is processed in France, so we had to include VAT in the price by law.

Being tracked down by humans and hunted by the monsters of the Wild, you are recruited by a mysterious group of Templars, and thus your epic adventure begins...
