Mission Completed: H-Hour Is Now A Reality!

Posted by David Sears (Creator)

We hit our first stretch goal of $250,000 within the ending duration of the Campaign, thank you!

Well, that’s a wrap for Kickstarter! For thirty days you have tirelessly promoted and evangelized H-Hour: World’s elite and your hard work has paid off. Thanks to you, we will be entering production of our “near vertical slice” and taking a major step to bringing you the full game. We could not have done this without you and you will not be forgotten. Beyond the simple rewards we offered you for believing in the project through Kickstarter, we will continue to add subtle (and some not-so-subtle) rewards in the game for you and continue to rely on your input as we forge the game into a true spiritual successor to SOCOM.

Over the course of our Kickstarter campaign many of you have asked me “Will I be able to pledge at a later time?” and “I don’t have a credit card. How can I become a supporter?” In response we are offering a PayPal option for you. For one month only you can pledge to the same tiers with the same rewards as we offered during the Kickstarter campaign. And if you wanted to pledge more but ran out of time, you can increase your pledge using PayPal. However, after this limited pledge drive extension ends, no Kickstarter rewards will be available to anyone who did not already pledge. 

We will be posting a follow up update within the next couple of days in which you will be able to donate via paypal at that time.

Thank you all again for the constant stream of kind words, encouragement, and all your stories about playing SOCOM. We’re beyond excited to return to work making a game that is sure to give you many, many new stories to tell for many years to come. We look forward to seeing you on our studio forums.

      I think the library will be a lot bigger this time around compared to the first two SOCOM games because for the simple fact that we know what to expect this time around. We've already had a taste of SOCOM with six console games since it's release. When it first launched with the original nobody really knew what the game was or what it was about, but those of us that watched it grow over time learned to love it. All we really have to do this time around is spread the word and get those loyal followers from the first few games. I lost interest after Combined Assault, but after reading and learning about H-HOUR I think it's time we get old friends back together and get the word out there.

      Looks like the 1st round just started. Now it's time for all of us to REALLY start trying to advertise this game abroad. When the PS4 is released, people are going to be looking for games to play. Their library will obviously be small for some time. This is the angle we should all be looking at, cause once these people who haven't played a game like Socom before get a taste, they will be hooked. This should increase the size of the overall community. I hope anyways. Congrats again SOF

      Will continue to upgrade my pledge then! I couldn't handle the amount for the tier I really wanted, but with this PayPal option, I will definitely be able to achieve it!

      Is socom 2 hd even possible? I'm sure Sony wishes they could get their grubby little hands on the money we pledged to get this started! Oww!

      As a SOCOM 1 and 2 fan I can honestly say that this is the best news any SOCOM family member can ask for, and I am glad that I was able to contribute for only knowing about H-Hour on Kickstarter only two days ago. I think most people have moved on with their lives since the end of SOCOM 3 and had finally accepted that what the original SOCOM offered was officially dead. Listening to what you and Tom had to say in interviews brought back a lot of memories to any true SOCOM family member. Rather than thanking us for pledging, we should be thanking you guys for bringing back what we enjoyed about our childhood. Looking forward to see what you guys will be doing.
