Kickstarter website down due to a massive interest expressed by backers trying to support Nemesis Lockdown

The official information on the Kickstarter website reads:

“We apologize, but it looks like something's gone wrong. We've been notified about this issue, and we're currently looking into it. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the inconvenience. Please try again later.”
All because even though Awaken Realms is known for breaking the bank with their campaigns, apparently nobody was ready for such a massive gamers' attack, all at once trying to support the studio’s new boardgame - Nemesis Lockdown.

Even though Nemesis Lockdown got funded in only one minute, collecting the required $49,012 of the initial goal, you can still support the game on Kickstarter. Of course, once the platform is up and running again because as you can see below, as soon as the campaign launched at 6:00 p. m. CET / 12:00 p. m. EDT today, Kickstarter servers started experiencing issues.

Nemesis Lockdown is a standalone expansion to the hit Board Game Nemesis (BGG rank overall #33, thematic #10). It builds on the tense, cinematic experience Nemesis is known for, adding even more opportunities for emergent, dramatic gameplay. Become an unlikely survivor, locked in an underground base with something terrifying. Turn up your paranoia, as you try to guess what other players are up to, or what the contingency plan is. Work to learn the weaknesses of your nemesis - or run like hell. Switch off the lights in someone’s lab section. Take a dangerous trek to the outside bunker. And whatever you do, be ready for unexpected!

Nemesis: Lockdown offers 1-5 player semi or full co-op experience that takes around 90-120 minutes and will be different every run! This stand-alone expansion also works with the majority of the previous Nemesis content: other Alien races and most of the characters.
