What a great first day everyone! Nearly 250k in just 24 hours. We're very proud and humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response. We have a long way to go, but this trajectory sure looks promising. I hope you all will help spread the word as much as possible to keep the train rolling.
We're very pleased to make the following announcements:
Offline / LAN play support
By popular demand we are happy to announce that we will support LAN play and running your own servers! There will be elements of the game that are online only and will only be available when connected. For example things like player stats, auto-updating, metagame etc. However, we feel it’s important to be able to have an offline experience as well.
For offline play, the game will be DRM free. For online play that gives you access to the global community and social features, you will need to be logged in.
Multiple Language Support
At launch we are committing to support at least English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Other languages may follow based on demand.
Sharable Custom Commander
By popular demand we've decided to allow the $1000 level custom commander be sharable. We will send you 5 codes that you can choose to share with your friends. They can use the code to get access to the commander unit.
We're confirming support for 64-bit operating systems.
The supporters of this Kickstarter are the ones we are listening to, so keep the suggestions coming!
