Greetings dear backers,

Thanks to your support, we are now very close to reach our third goal, the Epic Boss Fights! You are simply amazing! Only 3 days left to go even further!

You are probably wondering now what would be the next stretch goal after this third one. Well, as we told you before, we had to make drastic choices to respect our deadlines, so we had to cut a few factions from the story we wrote. Thanks to your help, we will reintegrate the Prag Mah faction presented here

Here is another faction that we had to cut from the game and that we could reintegrate as well: the Phalanx.

About the new “Phalanx” faction

Before The Shutdown, The Phalanx were a powerful mercenary organization that came into existence when Emperor Oberon banned the use of OMNIs in war. (OMNIs were much too good at killing. And the results on the human population were much too devastating.) Someone human needed to do the killing, and they were happy to step in... for the right price.  

For a pretty penny, the Phalanx could be hired by any major house, or by many minor houses, to fight in any war that their bidder wanted. Simply put, what the members of the Phalanx love most is war, which they consider a science as well as an art. Their studious interests in the subject, their obsession with its pursuit, and their love of money, preclude any kind of moral doubt that they may or may not have over the nature of any given job.

As members of the Phalanx are paid for their ability to kill, it's not uncommon to see them using these payments to make them better killers still, and many sport mechanical or biological augmentations, often more subtle and better integrated than those adorned by members of House Kosh-Buendia and House Akibara-Sung. 

As you command a powerful battleship in hostile star clusters on your journey, don't be surprised if one or two of your enemies hires the services of The Phalanx to stop you. It might also be possible to hire The Phalanx yourself... But it will cost you a LOT of scrap.

Stretch goal #4 - Additional faction + additional contents 70.000€

So if we reach 70.000€, we will add this new Faction to the game, the “Phalanx”, including:
  • 1 new/unlockable Battleship,  
  • 2 new playable Heroes,  
  • 2 new weapons,  
  • 3 new squadrons,  
  • 15 new story events  
And, several new contents:  
  • new stations and beacons,  
  • new planets,  
  • new civilian ships.
