The Plan, two year anniversary!



Hey good people! On this day two years ago, we released our little experiment The Plan. We’ve been through some exiting times since then, and felt like providing a little retrospective.

Some facts:
  • Over 600.000 people have played the game!
  • Over 50,000 have downloaded the game through torrents, even though the game is available for free through both Steam and our own website as a direct download.
  • 1,293 number of posts in just one of the discussions on steam.
  • Almost 8.000 reviews on Steam, lingering at a 9/10 score :D
  • Houndreds of thousands of views on lets plays on Youtube.
  • 1 unlockable character to be found in the game *wink*
  • 1 hidden soundtrack to be found in the game *wink*
Retrospective
The game was made in the afternoon and evenings in the winter of 2013, with no money put into it. It was launched on the 10th of february, with a brief mail to the press and a newsletter to our friends. There it was, right on our page.

Strangely, people actually seemed to play it. Kind people even wrote about it on sites like Eurogamer, RockPaperShotgun, Escapistmagazine and indiegames. Numerous lets plays popped up on Youtube.

We expected it to be this small thing, but suddenly it was talked about, played, loved, most probably hated, in any case cared about. It was a short game, and a humble beginning for us, as we had actually never released anything before.

Releasing a game turned out to be healthy, and The Plan gave us a moral boost that helped a lot during the heavy months of crunch left until ATS was released.

The following summer, it was even selected to be showcased at the Nordic Game Indie Night in Malmø, and later for the Notgames fest exhibition in Cologne!

After that we suspected everything would calm down, and the game would fade away. Until one day, when an email materialized in our inbox, letting us know the game suddenly was Greenlit for release on Steam! This was part of the first huge batch of games to be greenlit, so it came as a huge surprise back then. We were even greenlit alongside one of our friends Rain Games, and their awesome Teslagrad.

And thus, one year after the initial release, our free experiment saw rebirth on Steam as well. Once again, we got to experience countless discussions and more writing.

In the new version we also made an addition to the end, combining previous player’s thoughts and comments into a huge starry sky. Again, we were amazed at some of the reactions, a huge thread detailing what people had typed, discussions about what a game is, stories about overcoming difficult times. We even received touching emails from people around the world.

Numerous lets players also posted lot’s of great videos, delving head first into the game. One made a little short film, and another asked himself after playing the game “Is purple really purple” while looking at his hand. Poetry.

I guess what we’re trying to say is that in the end, hearing and watching the reactions of you people is what makes game development worth it. What makes it count. And we are very grateful for every last person who play and share their thoughts on our games.

Thanks so much playing! (For those planning to play it, make sure you have the newest version: 1.1.3)

게임에 대해

A fly ascends to the skies, pondering the pointlessness of its brief existence.
The Plan was developed as a side project by Krillbite Studio, who's currently finishing their main project Among the Sleep.

  • "Hey, You Should Play This"
    - Patrick Klepek, Giantbomb
  • "Some may argue that The Plan isn't really a game and it definitely occupies the same terrain as Journey, Passage, and Dear Esther, but it's shorter than Journey, prettier than Passage, and less overwrought than Dear Esther, making it well worth taking a punt on for the low price of free."
    - Jeffrey Matulef, Eurogamer
  • "It’s that space in the mechanics for thought and interpretation that I appreciate most here. The Plan won’t break your brain, but it’s a nicely contemplative journey."
    - Nathan Grayson, RockPaperShotgun
  • "In order, here are the emotions I experienced during the three minutes it took me to play The Plan, the new free morsel from the Norweigan indie developer Krillbite: confusion, frustration, boredom, fear, amusement, delight, joy, enchantment, and regret. One of the things independent games ask us to do is accept that a three-minute game can be as valid as a thirty-hour one. Games like these make it hard to disagree."
    - Joseph Bernstein, Buzzfeed
  • "Krillbite Studio, the developers behind Among The Sleep, have gone on and released a most polished, visually stunning and freeware new game"
    - Konstantinos Dimopoulos, Indiegames.com
  • "Krillbite's The Plan is a short, sharp experimental deliberation on the meaning of life."
    - Andy Chalk, The Escapist

게임은 한다는 느낌보단 영화를 관람한다는 느낌으로 접근하면 좋을것 같다.
재미보단 여운을 남기는 게임.

From now on, this epic story of a great hero will pass from generation to generation until the end of time.
After the end, i have to say that ' "The Plan" was brilliant".

Short & Sweet (& Free).
I played this game for about 10min, & enjoyed it all.
You play as a fly. Not sure if theres a goal, or if all games end the same (i won't say how mine ended in case you want to find out for yourself), but i had fun for the 10min that i played it.
Got 1/1 Achievements, another (easy) Perfect Game.
Also, it's free, it's a small DL (112mb), so there's no real reason not to try it.
Enjoy :)

I initially downloaded this game bacuse it was said to be easy achievement grab- and it was. However there is so much more you could say about this game. I played this game for less than ten minutes and I got all misty eyed. This game punched my belief in the world in it's face. I questioned my own futile struggles. I questioned the universe. I questioned myself and our place in the world. People who are complaining about this game are expecting just that a game-- this is an experience.

10 outta 10 would have an existential crisis again.

First off I would like to make sure that all understand that like 9.03 M...this is not a game, but an experience. That being said I did really enjoy it! :) I took quite a few screenshots, as well. I found the graphics quite beautiful and very much enjoyed the short time spent to finish. Also there are a few surprises in store that I was not expecting...that in and of itself is worth the time. The main thing is that this does not cost you even one cent so I highly recommend everyone should try this out...since you can un-install when you are finished. ;)...One noteworthy statement...to get the achievement I did have to go to the forum...but however if you can figure it our for yourself it would of course be MUCH more rewarding! ;))...Don't wait...go try it today!!...Sla'inte!
