I'm a game designer and a co-founder of Snow Arc studio, though "studio" is a bit ambitious word for a team of three. Live in London, study at UCL, originally from Russia, so I apologies for any mistakes you can read in my blogs/comments.
It's sad that GUTS didn't get funding on Kickstarter. It was one of the game I really wanted to play. I hope that this little failure won't affect their plans and the world will see this game.
For those who haven't seen it, you're still able to play the alpha Bigmengames.com , guys are too modest calling it alpha. It's a very stable build that gives the quick grasp of the idea.
