We're so excited that this is all going so well! We're thrilled to be making Balance of Powers and it's so amazing that so many other people are excited too. We keep asking ourselves what took us so long.
If we get to $7000 in funding, we'll make some audio content... perhaps something capturing the hustle and bustle of the streets of Midway. We're cooking up some extra incentives to give you if we go over even that much, too, so watch this space!
And now, just a little teaser:
Most ordinary decent citizens never come to Midway, that metal city on the waves. Why would they need to? It's the beating heart of the continent’s black markets, a den of exiles and scientists and spies; a place no government controls however much they try.
But everyone knows Midway exists, and where it is. Halfway between England and France, little more than a service station for the cross-channel railway when it was first conceived, it's now over two miles long and two miles wide. With all the new pillars that have been sunk into the sea to support it, with all the businesses and dwellings that cling like limpets to its outermost extremities, with all the powers that desire a foothold on Midway, you'd think it'd be wealthy. And it is, in a way.
But, like an oyster, it keeps its riches on the inside.
