Stretch Goal Reached! Final Hours of The Campaign!
Hey everybody! It's the final day of our Kickstarter Campaign -- the final hours, actually -- and we're already through Stretch Goal # 1. Now let us close this thing out properly!
Commander Traits are In!
Thanks to you, Commander Traits are confirmed for development in SRC. In line with our design mantra that no two games should play alike, every new campaign will start with a bit of customization of your Commander.
Perhaps your Commander had defected from Carthage and holds a resentment towards the Roman Senate, or has a connection to slave trading and must balance the lucrative trade with their own morality.
Up Next: The Punic Wars
That brings us to our next stretch goal. In the Punic Wars expansion, we'll switch the factions around, playing as Hannibal himself against thousands of Roman troops. We'll add new units for you to control, new environments such as Spain and the Alps, and plenty of new enemies to fight.
And those Elephants!
With only hours remaining, it seems far off, but in reality bringing us up to the next tier is only a small tier increase away. Read on for more information about our reward tiers.
Reward Tiers Clarification
We want you all to be happy and satisfied with the reward tier you've chosen, so please take a look at this quick FAQ to make sure you're where you want to be:
When do I get to play the early access build? Our Magistrate tier backers at $30 will get the earliest access possible the full game, starting shortly after the conclusion of our Kickstarter. Those backers will receive constant updates as we build systems and content, and will have a voice in the development process. The Tribune tier at $15 will get the second earliest access, starting around Spring 2014.
Note, we also are nearly finished with a pre-release demo that will be available to everyone.
Do I get rewards from lower tiers if I pledge above that tier? Yes! The one quirk there is that if you only get to choose one NPC type to be named, even if you pledge above all the named-NPC reward tiers.
Where will my named NPC show up? Your player will encounter various NPC's through semi-random events throughout their campaign. The names of these NPC's will be assigned from the pool of backer's names, so you never know when or where you'll show up.
This is it!
Well everyone, the next time we chat will probably at the close of this Campaign. We will be right here in the comments and messages, answering your questions and chatting till the end!
Thanks again, talk to you soon!
