Update #20 - New pledge upgrades and support banners
Not long until Christmas and I hope everyone has bought their Elite: Dangerous Christmas gifts. What better present for a loved one - or yourself, than the promise of this great game? :-)
As I write this we are currently over £903,000 pledged and with 17,480 backers. This is great news and thank you to all our backers. We're not safe yet, so please make sure to keep up the good work and keep spreading the word. With more backers we can feel more secure in achieving the £1,250,000 goal to get this game made.
This game has to be made - if only so I can play it!
Today we're adding some new pledge upgrades and also changing the minimum pledge level needed to qualify to add upgrades. Rather than £40, you only need to be at the £30 tier or higher to add pledge upgrades.
Here are the new upgrades, note they are digital download only so you don't have any shipping charge (unless you order and physical upgrades as well):
+£5 Have a digital copy of the official sequel to “The Dark Wheel” (Delivery March 2014)
+£5 Have a digital copy of the Elite: Dangerous soundtrack (Delivery March 2014)
+£5 Pick one of the ship decals, at least 10 will be available, they can be used as the decal to access the Founders' World (Delivery March 2014)
We've also received requests for banners that supporters can use as forum signatures and similar. I've included these below:
I'd also like to shout out about "Survivor" by Nathanael Page. He's one of our Elite: Dangerous authors and is planning something a little different with his writer's pack. He's planning to make a gamebook, as a fan of gamebooks from my youth I'd love to see what he does with the Elite universe.
Visit the link and help support his book and with it the game:
Once again, thanks to all of our backers - old, new and yet to be!
