A new Indiegogo campaign looks to raise funds for a J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition to update the point-and-click sci-fi adventure to match the vision of two-person developer CBE software. They planned to fund an Enhanced Edition using profits from the original game, but word is these ultimately only served to cover their legal expenses after a payment dispute with their former publisher. In explaining the campaign's goals, Jan Kavan, CBE software director harkens back to the old days: "When we've released J.U.L.I.A. back in 2012, the response especially from the adventure gaming community was amazing. Even if we knew that this is a new video game format, we've been well accepted and especially the story, music and game flow was generally praised," he explains. "J.U.L.I.A. is for me an extremely personal game and regardless of what happens next, I want to have the game really polished. I also perceive the crowdfunding process as something more than just getting some cash. We want the community to actively participate through polls, voting and feedback. We’ve set us very modest and realistic goal for this campaign as we want to eliminate the worst problems stemming from our former zero budget situation. That’s why it’s now too early to speak about other exciting possibilities this campaign could open for J.U.L.I.A. One of our primary goals is to let Rachel Manners climb out from the uncanny valley, where she’s now settled in."
