The game itself is in development more than six years. During this time, the project managed not only to change the role system, but also to change the format. The developers abandoned the isometric view in favor of a third person.

Initially INSOMNIA has been created on money of the team. But after the first three years of operation, Studio MONO have successfully conducted two crowdfunding campaigns in a row. The amount of attracted funds amounted to $170 thousand.

That card has jumped in price in 2-3 times, when hysteria began with cryptocurrencies, and when the miners bought the video card a hundred – it is clear to any who’ve studied the issue. However, companies that produce video cards, deny it, and, it seems, we know why.

Just yesterday we talked about the fact that Nvidia stated minimum impact on the market of miners and that, they say, blame gamers, which caused a shortage and today with the similar statement was made by AMD, denying the report, an analyst, a certain Christopher Roland, who he prepared for investors, the company, which said that miners account for about 20% of all sales.

AMD said that actually this percentage is much lower and does not affect the position in the market, and they did it because in his report Mr Rowland said the stock price AMD would be reduced from 13 to 7.5 dollars. It must be done because mining is a tantrum not a long-term Foundation for future sales. This is how to count total annual revenue flower shop based on sales, made on 8 March. Such a tough business.
