Achievements & Pledge Addons
Hey all! Jonathan (audio) here again with a couple of updates - this time all related to the campaign! Let's go ahead and get started:
We are excited to announce our achievement system for the rest of the campaign! The achievement system is pretty simple: You backers have “Missions” that you can take part in, and when certain levels of these missions are achieved, you guys collect points. These points add up across the board and unlock bonus rewards for backers, like livestreams, in-game easter eggs, and even a team member (probably me) getting a System Shock tattoo. Check out some of the ways you guys can go and earn points!
We will be working with Backerkit for the rest of the campaign and beyond! Backerkit is a crowdfunding fulfillment software solution that is going to help us manage the Kickstarter, so that we can better focus on things that will help the game. Backerkit does a handful of things for us. It’ll allow us to survey our backers, so that we can have a better way to gauge what our players want. Backerkit allows us to give backers “add-ons” to give you guys more options and flexibility when it comes to what kinds of rewards you want to purchase and help support the campaign! It’s going to help us to answer communications much more efficiently and quicker (our small team has been *stacked* with questions from you guys!).
tl;dr: Backerkit will help us to be more effective in managing the backing for System Shock, and allows us more options to give backers more choice over what they want!
A lot of you have been asking if you can add the Art Book to your pledge tier. Thanks to Backerkit, you'll be able to (once the campaign ends). If you'd like the art book, add $25 onto your pledge to prep for the addon, then you'll be able to select it within the BackerKit website when we have everything set up. If your pledge currently doesn't include a physical reward, keep in mind that there will be shipping costs involved on top of the $25. Those of you already with physical rewards should have a notice that shipping is not included.
We are still holding our giveaway/raffle for an awesome System Shock Limited Edition Screen Print Poster & T-Shirt. It will continue throughout the rest of the Kickstarter, and you can continue entering every day! So continue entering and help us to spread the word to continue to make this game awesome!
