  1. Hello!

    My name is Lawrence C Stagg III and I backed Super RETRO Squad (Now Glitch Strikers I believe) and my Kickstarter is “Sei” and my backer number is 1,462. I pledged 1,000 July 14th, 2012. I’m mostly trying to see if there have been any updates or progress or if the project was abandoned. I’v been keeping up here and there over the years, and now with it being almost a decade…. I do understand that you have had a lot happen, and have been moveing forwards on some regards, but your website (https://explodingrabbit.com) doesn’t seem to talk much about the project and I was wondering if there was some website I missed or somewhere you post about the game project if you do.

    Again, I am not trying to shame you or anything, I’m actually still interested and super hopeful you do finally get your dream game out, I just wish to keep up with it. Anyway, I do hope you have a good day and I hope to hear some good news.
