Stretch Goals Part 2
Many thanks to everyone who wrote and commented to tell us which features they most wanted to see as stretch goals! Since we heard a lot about multiplayer, both co-op and PvP, we've spent the last few days figuring out how we wanted to build it and what we would need to make it awesome. We've also heard a lot about building, simulations, and classes, so there's a bit of that in these stretch goals too.
Here's a little description of each current stretch goal, and there's a graphic at the bottom to show what we need to realize it for everyone:
Mammoth Bonanza - 140k: (Success!) All backers at the $15 level and higher will receive a cuddly baby Mammoth pet!
Friendly Faction: Rabbit Clan - 160k: (Achieved!) An ancient race of honorable, subterranean lagomorphs. Your potential allies.
Glacier Biome - 180k: Snowy, icy lands with unique building mechanics for igloos and frost forts!
Mac and Linux Port - 200k: Retail release of the game for both Mac & Linux.
Pirates, Ninjas and Politicians - 220k: Your wealthy, thriving communities will draw the attention of the dread Order of Applied Equivocation.

“Extra fine, I get. Extra fluffy? Sure, keeps the kids warm in the winter. Even the natural saffron yellow, I managed, though it took three generations and the weavers complained it came out more chartreuse than goldenrod. But steel wool? Who’s ever heard of a sheep growing metal outta’ its skin?” Devin Baaspeak stared dolefully at his herd. They stared dolefully back. “Crafters,” he sighed. “Time to get to work, guys.”
New Class: Magma Smith - 260k: Harness the earth’s most destructive material to incinerate invaders and raise towering walls of black glass.
“Lad, I once saw a man bend fire and earth into a new continent for his people. The least you can do is dig your ma her new flowerbed.”
Dragon Whelp Bonanza - 280k: All backers at the $15 level and higher will receive a hyperactive baby dragon pet. Warning: may take centuries to mature.
“What, the egg? The kid found it in the stream bed yesterday. It’s small enough. What’s the harm?”

“When the shadow fell over the valley the ground trembled, but our hearts did not. For no matter what happened between this breath and the next, we knew we stood with our brothers and sisters, together in this world... and the next, and next, and next.”
