@cookmellow Looks like the app is down again. Hoping you guys can put together a GoFundMe or Kickstarter or something soon.

Hey #whatittakes fans, sorry the website is down. I'm hiking in the mountains and there is almost no signal/wifi here. It's my first vacation in 2 years sooooo no I haven't taken your Kickstarter money and run off I promise. SpiderForest is trying to figure out what's going on

@GrailGames Just chasing a contact about an address change for Manhattan Project Energy Empire. Haven’t had any luck through Kickstarter, and it appears your website is down. Tried through @EditionsMatagot website, but MP is not mentioned in their KS contact games. Thanks
