Stretch goal #1: Check! Ready for the round 2?
Greetings Space Fighters,
Our first stretch goal is now funded! Thanks to your support, a new Faction, the “Prag Mah”, will be added to the game, as will an alternate ending.
Stretch goal #2 - Advanced expeditions + Another alternate ending: 45.000€
If we reach 45 000 € before the end of the campaign, we will work on an advanced version of the expedition. To be more specific, here are some precisions about what we planned:
- Animated illustrations: The player will have the opportunity to see their Hero use his or her skills. Animated illustrations will appear during epic moments of the expedition, showing the player what their team (Hero and commandos) is experiencing on the ground. Here is a mockup preview:
- Enhanced user interface: we want to improve the player’s experience of the expedition. That’s why we want to dedicate more time and resources improve the user interface, implement new animations, feedbacks, VFX… in order to increase immersion and user experience.
We will also work on another alternate ending, including:
- 1 new end cutscene,
- 5 new story events.
We hope you like this stretch goal as much as our team!
Prestigious press coverage
As an indie French Studio, we are so proud to be mentioned in prestigious video games US media! Rock, Paper, Shotgun and Kotaku released articles about our Kickstarter campaign!
- Kotaku: FTL Fans, Crying Suns Is Here For You
- Rock, Paper, Shotgun: Crying Suns feels like FTL’s grimmer and darker cousin
We also want to thank all the journalists and streamers who mentioned us and helped us spread the word about the game.
Our indie dev friends, the Black Flag Studio, achieved recently their Kickstarter campaign for Orphan Age, a dystopian life-sim game where you play as the children left behind in a cyberpunk warzone.
If we have to compare it to other games, it would be between The Sims and This War of Mine. We really like the inspirations of the game (Shadowrun, Blade Runner…), which is amazing, just like the team.
Take a look at Orphan Age and if you like it, spread the word! You can find the Kickstarter page (including a free Demo) here.
If you like the game, you can pre-order it on Backerkit.
