The Home Stretch! $600k+Live Streams and Final Stretch Goals!
Hi guys, We've blasted through $600,000 to achieve the Three Kingdoms stretch goal! Not only that, but our pledges are gaining steam as we enter the last 36 hours of the campaign. This has been a wild ride for us at Radiant, and we once again want to express how deeply grateful we are for all of your support.
So here's how we're planning on ending things with a bang!
Final Stretch Goals
Our stretch goals have been incredibly popular. So popular in fact that our plates are pretty full right now. We don't want to bite off more than we can chew and risk sacrificing the overall quality of the game, but at the same time we want to reward you guys for achieving higher pledge levels.
So what we've decided to do is add two more big, beefy "moon shot" stretch goals, but time them as post release. If we achieve these goals, you are guaranteed to see these features in the game, but they will come in through a free update that ships sometime after our initial release in September 2014. Without further ado, here they are...
New Playable Race: Dwarves: While the Three Kingdoms of humans spread across the world's surface, the dwarves build their own empire deep in the mountains and bedrock below.
This dwarven race will come complete with new art, entirely new play mechanics more suited to a dwarven disposition, and new classes and crafting recipes.
Help! All driven underground by fire and trapped by rocks. The ground shakes; Dwarven drums in the deep. We cannot get out... they are coming!

Persistent, Connected World: We'll offer the option to host your game on our own servers (this may require a fee). All hosted games can choose to participate in entirely new gameplay modes with other hosted cities!
Here are some of the things we're thinking about:
- Your cooperative games will be available all the time, not just when the computer serving the game is on
- Establish alliances and supply-routes between friendly, player controlled cities
- Trade in the global economy that spans all hosted games
- Band several cities together to create your own Empires
