GhostControl Inc. is funded!
We are celebrating!
Today is a very special day to us – GhostControl Inc. got fully funded! Thanks so much to each and every one of you, you are totally awesome!
To celebrate this we thought of a few really good changes that we'd like to present to you in this update:
- New feature „Shout outs!“
- New reward tiers
- New Stretch goals - of course
New Feature - Shout outs!
Wouldn‘t it be great if we could produce a game with memorable quotes like we all have them from our favourite movies? Yes, we think that would be great. So we want hundreds of phrases from a simple „ouch“ to „HQ we are running low on battery“ to „I knew that shit would happen.“ and we would display those depending on context. With the new £30 tier you can think of three legendary shout outs that may be quoted by players in the future!
And even better if we reach our new £9000 stretch goal we‘ll have them recorded as audio by voice actors.
This is what we have changed in our tiers:
- Introduced a £30 Tier called „Create a shout out“ as explained in „New Feature - Shout outs!“
- Lowered the price of the £150 tier „Name a team“ to £100!
- New limited Edition „Name a team“. 25 of these for £50 instead of previously £150 (now reduced to £100)
- New £150 tier „Design an item“, limited to 5 only!
- New £5000 tier „Add San Francisco“
Name a team
There is true value in it: Team names of opponents show up all the time while hunting or when the current game ranking is displayed. Display your guild's name or whatever - no one will be able to ignore you ever again...
Design an item
Come up with a trap, a weapon or a sensor and share your idea with our team. We‘ll work together on something that you designed and that will become part of the game then. Strictly limited to 5 because it comes with a lot of work for our team.
We thought about a US city with great landmarks that a lot of people know. All the ghosts in New York City have been banished in 1984 already, so we chose San Francisco. Are you generous enough to add this to the game for all players? This is probably the only opportunity in your life to buy a whole city for only £5000! Limited to ONE San Francisco only.
The £50 celebration tier!
25 lucky and discerning customers will get the glorious chance of naming a team and of having access to the alpha version for as little as £50. More details can be found in the "pledges"-section.
New stretch goals
As we reached our goal, we also took our time to rethink our stretchgoals. In connection with the new feature „Shout Outs!“ we thought what if we could afford voice actors to speak what the ghost hunters have to say:
£9,000 – TALKING HUNTERS - Should we achieve this goal, english voice actors will exclaim your hunter's thoughts every now and then. (recorded by voice actors in English). Examples may be: "Ectoplasm is dripping from me ears!", "Guys we are being busted!", "Is that all you learned in the past 200 years?"
Also we thought: Wow! Cars are cool! But what about flying? The helicopter will be really a cool new invention: It is electrical. It is really a quick shortcut to the hunting scene but you need a HQ that has room for it and you need to have it charged - new strategical challenges come with that!
£12,000 – CHOPPER & GHOSTS – With this goal reached, we will be adding a helicopter to the game and three additional ghosts, offering additional strategical options, gameplay and fun.
This is what the new list of stretch goals looks like:
That's it for today
Thank you so much! All the best to you!
