Update #24 - Mac Version Stretch Goal & New Concept Art
as I write this I'm looking at the pledge total and we're so close to the million I can almost smell it! We're currently sitting at just over £982,000 - nice job everyone with your pledge increases and new pledges yesterday. We now also have 18,215 backers, welcome to our new supporters and we hope many more will join us in these last days.
So please keep spreading the word, use every means you can. Together we will make this game. For those interested in numbers if everyone pledged another £15 we'd hit our target. Now I know that many of you have already done this and that is fantastic.
We also have a large number of backers at the lower tiers. If you are one of those backers then please consider a modest upgrade. For £32 you get the Imperial Bounty Hunter starting option. For £37 you get the Imperial Trader starting position and a copy of the official novel (written by me - I can't wait to get started!). Remember if you increase your pledge reward, you generally get the rewards for from the lower tiers as well. Check the reward descriptions on the main Kickstarter page for more information.
Over the duration of the project we've received many requests for a Mac version of the game. We are announcing an official stretch goal for the project. If we reach £1.4 million in funding through the Kickstarter project, we will release a Mac version of the game around 3 months after the initial Windows PC release.
Calling all Mac fans, let everyone you can know the good news. We have the reach the stretch goal target to make this happen.
We also have a lovely new piece of concept art for you today, see the piece called 'Red Giant' below:
I have two book shouts for today. The first is John Harper's "And here the wheel". His crowd funding project is in it's last day. Please visit his site and provide your support:
Remember supporting the book pledges also helps fund the game project!
We also have a new Kickstarter book project call "Elite Chronicles" by C L. She is trying something a little different- not only is she crowd funding the book, she is also crowd writing it. A bold experiment. Visit the link below to support her project:
Once again, thank you everyone for your support.
We have to make this game!
I'll be back tomorrow with a new update.
