@Peri Lore is looking good!
And for the backer design documents, I have to say - wow - so many options and decisions to make for the higher level backers. you'd probably need an excel sheet to properly balance a squadron design?
The Mandate must be one of -if not THE - most involving kickstarter community funded game ever?
@Rishav Sharan: Feedback noted.
Love the lore and will eagerly await for the next one. However, my main concern is still unresolved. We are yet to see a gameplay video. no matter how alpha or halfbaked the footage is, the devs need to show something concrete to their followers.
Otherwise it makes me question the legitimacy of this project.
Read the whole thing, great stuff.
Loving the lore. Very detailed, great history, and everyone feels unique. I love the changes in voice when it comes to how everyone feels about everyone else, and it makes me very eager to see what the diplomacy system ends up looking like.

Loving the lore. If the game has the same level of detail in the politicking, it's going to make for a ton of replayability, that's for sure.
I love reading the Lore Update !! it's fantastic...
im gunna read all of this after the game comes out for i dont really like spoilers and im really good at seeing where things are going by looking at the past
I have never been so excited for a game as I am for "The Mandate". Every time you guys release a new update I'm baffled by the complexity of the features and the lore. Thank you so much for creating something that will not only be a game - something that will be a piece of art.
