Update #26 - New Concept Art
the uptake for the Elite: Dangerous kickstarter has been amazing. As I write this the total sits at over £1,051,000 and we now have 18,858 backers. Both are incredible numbers and help us get closer to the £1.25 million we need to reach in 6 days time.
So please keep spreading the word, the more backers we have then the easier the target, or even the stretch goal can be reached. If you're holding back in the lower tiers then take a look at the next reward tiers, a modest bump from everyone would also help see us across the goal.
One of the interesting new tier rewards have been the starting positions, these give you a different ship, equipment and credits when you start the game. Does being a pirate interest you? Then the £42 reward tier will help get you started. If like me exploration is your thing then take a look at the £70 tier.
Remember that most reward tiers include many or all of the tiers above it as well.
You can also look at the pledge upgrades, here new items can be added to your pledge. These include concept prints (signed by David Braben, or not signed), we have confirmed that a star chart and ship recognition chart are available.
Today we have a new piece of concept art. This image shows a close fought battle in and around a space station.
If you want to know more or just want to join in the discussion then visit us in the comments. I'm there regularly to discuss the game and answer any questions.
Today's book shout out goes to Sean Curtin's "The Space Farer's Tale", he only has a few days left for his funding so please visit his site and pledge your support:
Remember that helping the book projects also helps the game project as well.
So once again thank you to everyone for your support. We have to make this game and with your support we will.
I will be back tomorrow with another update.
