Update #30 - New Stretch Goal, New Pledge Reward Tier and New Concept
this morning has been incredible, just watching the numbers increase. We're currently have a pledge total of over £1.2 million, with less than £50,000 left to raise - not counting stretch goals, but we'll get to that shortly. We now also have 20,505 backers, another incredible number and a huge thanks to each and every one of you.
We are going to make this game and it is all thanks to you. But we're not quite there yet, so keep pledging, keep spreading the word, let's make the most of these final 50 or so hours!
We recently announced the first stretch goal and that was to release a Mac version of the game within 3 months of the initial Windows launch if the project reached £1.4 million. Today we're adding a more modest stretch goal, but one all players can benefit from, more playable ships. Early in the project we revealed there would be 15 playable ships in game, if we reach £1.5 million with the Kickstarter then we'll add another ten playable ships to the game.
New £25 Reward Tier
We've also added a new limited availabilitty reward at £25. This pledge reward gives you a digital copy of the game and adds 500 credits to the default starting option of the game. There are only 5000 spots available so get in there quick. Anyone already pledged above this level gains the 500 credit default starting bonus.
Here's a new mood concept piece some of you may have spotted from John Laws' Art Journal video:
Star Chart In Premium Box Set (£90 reward tier)
I can also now confirm that the Premium box set reward at £90 will contain a printed star map for the game.

David Braben's Birthday
It is David Braben's birthday today - so Happy Birthday to David B! I think all of the positive activity today has been the best present he could have received.
So once again thank you to everyone, we nearly there and I'll be back tomorrow with a new update.
