it was followed by the crowdfunding campaign and the game's website crashed intermitently due to the resulting spike in traffic.[1]

The website was launched thirty days prior to the announcement as a "teaser site".[1]

In the week leading up to GDC Online, Chris Roberts went on a national and international press tour, which had to be expanded due to the high interest by the press.[1]
