5 days to go! Asteroid belt sighted!

Posted by Chris Booker (Creator)

Wow, 5 days to go and over £3,000 funded - 65% there and our solar system chart shows us almost pass Jupiter, and perhaps rather aptly, heading into the Asteroid field.

So strap yourselves in, it could be an even wilder ride from here on in, with around £1,800 still to go - we still need full power to the mining lasers!  Please don't nudge any off course, we've already had to avert one apocalypse this year.....

Talking about wild rides - Elite: Dangerous has been an emotional rollercoaster hasn't it?  There's no reason to take our foot off the gas just yet but I think the current total of just below £1.1 million at this stage as pretty healthy indeed at this stage.  Our book can only help deliver it safely across the line though, first with the cold hard Writer's Pack cash and then with helping fill in the back story for the universe which will help elevate it beyond the status of mere 'computer game' and into the experience many people want and are hoping for.

Thank you to those who have pledged and to those who are yet to!  We are almost at Earth!

      Best of luck Chris, nearly there. @ William - even if this isn't one of the 10 already listed on the E:D page, FD have already confirmed that should it be necessary, they're happy to open up more book slots.

      Chris, have you pledged early for your Writer's Pack? I hope the answer's yes, because according to the Elite: Dangerous page, it's already sold out. If the answer's no, perhaps you can work out some sort of deal with Frontier.
