Thank you to all our supporters, whether you pledged to the crowd funding project or shared the link with all your networks. We really appreciate all your enthusiastic messages and everything you've done over the last few weeks to help us reach £4661 of Catastrophic funding.

We're going to do some sums now to confirm final numbers, but we can already tell you that we'll be sending more than 80 games out into the world and you've supported at least 260 hours of student time this summer to start developing our exciting expansion packs. For those of you who've signed up to get the game, we'll be in touch to confirm postal addresses over the next month, and we're looking forward to working with you if you've signed up to help us develop the Character cards and highlight career paths in the biosciences. Keep an eye out for communications!

Thank you again, and have a Catastrophically joyful day.

From the Catastrophic Crew - Pen, Sara and Eli

We're nearly there!

We've made it past £3000 of support - that's amazing, thank you all! We are beginning to do sums and make plans for our Catastrophic development this summer, but there are still 2.5 days to go. Any sharing of the crowd funding project link and gentle persuasion around your networks of friends, gamers and educators up to the deadline of midnight on Monday (UK time) will make all the difference - keep up the great work and we look forward to sending you your rewards.

We are funded!

We have reached our minimum funding target of £1500 and this project will happen! Thank you so much to all our supporters so far - your pledges will help us to make more Catastrophically awesome games and resources, for you and for learners and gamers of all ages to enjoy.

Please keep sharing our crowdfunding project with all your playful and educational networks, so that we can make Catastrophic even bigger and better than it already is. We still have 18 days to go - let's try and smash through our funding target of £7000 like a Catastrophic meteorite, and bring the joy to as many people as we can.
