It’s our final week here for Alpha Colony and we’ve crossed the halfway mark and are headed for the finish line! We’re revving up to for new content all this week to help us meet our goal. Beginning with this very exciting announcement:
Double Time! Every dollar pledged to Alpha Colony on Kickstarter gets matched!
Starting today, your dollar goes further! This is really exciting news because it means that we now have a realistic chance of not only succeeding but also reaching several of the stretch goals we had our heart set on. But how is this possible?
#1 – Colorado Film Incentive Program
We’re proud to announce that our application to the Colorado Film Incentive Program has been accepted! This program matches funds spent on creative content projects based in Colorado, such as film or video games. However, if we don’t reach our Kickstarter goal, we will not be able to spend the minimum requirement to be eligible for these additional funds.
#2 – Private Funding
A private backer has also agreed to match our Kickstarter funds in make additional stretch goals possible. However, we need to prove that the game has enough demand first by reaching our Kickstarter minimum funding goal.
This means if we can just reach our $50k minimum funding goal, we will now able to deliver all of our stretch goals up to $100k, including:
- Playable Tutorial Mission
- Separate Wampus Mini-Game
- 4 Additional Playable Races
- Android support (tablets and phones!)
- iOS LD support (tablets and older iPhones!)
- Prospecter Game Mode
- Random World Events
- Auction Mini-Game
We’re really happy about what this means, as this really makes Alpha Colony a more complete game. However, it’s still all or nothing, so if we don’t make our minimum funding goal we won’t get any of our backer’s money, any money from the state of Colorado or any money from our private backer.
Matching funds apply toward future stretch goals too!
Best of all, this matching goes above and beyond our minimum goal and will apply to all future stretch goals as well. Now that your money goes further, it’s more important than ever to like, share and tell your friends and family about our project. Let’s get Alpha Colony funded!
