I will not only reback you but go from 25 to 85. I mentioned it at some point that i did not like how you lined up the pledge tiers. With the new aproach there is a tier for every wallet and need. I see this breaking the 75k easily this time!
This project is so promising and awesome! Both the art and the music are incredible. I've been following you for more than a year since I found a piece of concept art of the project on some forums.
I hope everything works out!
Are u not deeply concerned by raising capital for the year-end that you may get caught in a double taxation situation. Just saying... --- Love Pepe
Hi Jesse the art work for the game is just fantastic I was wondering how maney peices of concept art we recieve with the Colonial PeaceKeeper Tear?
Awesome! I'm so glad. I'm sure things will look up once we go live on steam. I'll be waiting! :)
We have already been excepted by steam! and just need the last bit of funding to be able to complete some final development before we go live on steam alpha.
Hello, I was thinking about something that you may want to, or already possibly have, consider. I use Steam for almost all of my games on the computer and they have a MASSIVE following. I've shown all of my friends this game, but, much like myself, they primarily use Steam for their gaming. I'm not entirely sure of the greenlight process or anything about getting a game on there, but I do know that if this game is greenlit on steam, it WILL take off. You could make it early access and fund it even if it doesn't quite make it on Kickstarter. I know you may have already considered this, but I seriously believe that this game will take off if it can be accessible to the Steam community. Thank you for considering our opinion thus far! :)
@ Lucius & Faizan
There is quite a bit happening right now and i have a lot of great news so stay tuned in the next few days for a update!
I was wondering this also. Right now it's not looking promising, but I would love to see it succeed.
Furthermore, I have been a fan if Denny Schneidemesser for years, and have been anticipating the release of this soundtrack for years, also. Will you still be releasing the soundtrack if you don't hit your goal, because my money is waiting to be taken for it.
I have a question regarding the success of this kickstarter. I have always been a fan of RTS games and MMO's and I love this idea of blending them together. I really want to see this succeed, and I do not ask this with bad taste, but what happens if you do not succeed within the given time? Would you launch a new kickstarter or would there be a bigger lapse in time for the completion of the game?
All rewards are individual keys that we give to you, so you can activate them on either account. i.e. 3 months premium is 3 keys, you can activate 1 month on one account and 2 months on the other.
Hope this helps.
I went for one of the tiers that gives multiple copies, and I was wondering if all accounts are given the free months of premium, or if that's only for one of the accounts. Sorry if this has been asked before
Are you concerned with running it so close to the end of the year, that payment processing may make you have to pay taxes twice on the kickstarter money? --- (JOKE MATE) - u know who this is - hehe
The optional premium account is designed to be more of a quality of life features and will not effect the "power" of one player over another. i go into more detail on its exact features here : http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2122031929/novus-aeterno-a-true-aaa-mmorts/posts/668756
You may have a really good point re the infiltrator access going to start looking into that.
I'm glad your enjoying it!
What will be the major differences between a premium and free account? A lot of games (usually f2ps) that offer tiered accounts like that result in players without the premium accounts getting a significantly worse experience.
i have watched all of the twitch feeds last night (early this morning) and i am blown away by this game. Great mechanics and beautiful artwork!at this time I don't think that the kickstarter will make funding not because of the game but because becoming an infiltrator costs so much. I think if you drop down the price to become and infiltrator or make a tier just to become an infiltrator at a lower price you will meet you goal easily! Good luck :)
The game in it's current state is an absolute blast and it JUST GETS BETTER!!! PLEASE guys and gals if you can afford it, up your pledge! Bring your friends and family. This game is changing the MMORTS genre in the way we have ALL wanted for the last 15 years! Don't believe me? Just check out their twitch and youtube videos!
Yes all 5 races in the game are playable, so there are Humans, 3 alien races, and 1 robotic race.
we will be adding in basic "Fire and forget" sensors that you can launch out into deep space, as well as advanced sensors you can mount on ships.
We will have the optional Premium subscription as well as ship and planet skins in the cash shop which we aim to use those profits to keep the servers running.
Really interested in this game. Really looking for something like this in ages, hope that the amount would be reached.
And maybe an idiotic question to ask (think i have missed it while reading)
Are the playable races only of human origin or are we able to select an more alien race or a human/alien subspecies?
(should really catch up on the livestreams)
Will there be some form of advanced ship sensors/deep space sensor stations in the game?
I really hope this goes through. I'd love to play this game. It seems to have learned from a lot of the other 'MMORTS' attempts and actually be aiming for something fantastic. However, I worry that a game like this makes its money over the long term, through micro transactions, and seldom with a big purchase up front! Holding thumbs for success though!
Great work.. this looks amazing.. :)
Unfortunately Capital ships still require some more development before they can be put onto the Infiltrator server, hence why we put them as a stretch goal.
Do you think we could see a Capital Ship in game for the next twitch live stream?
we will be sending out the invites just after we are successful on kickstarter, until then we don't know who has bought into what tiers.
@Eddy & Yauchen
Ill make a note of this we will be announcing some new tiers this week and i will see what i can put together for you ;)
I'm really interested in this one, it seems like it's a game which I've been waiting for for a long time. If I pledge infiltrator, how soon am I able to play? By "immediate" are you guys currently sending out invites on a daily basis or something?
I Wouldn't Mind A Copy Below infiltrator ThaHad The I'm Game Extras (Ks Exclusive Fleets And Planet Ect) But With Just 1 Copy, And Can Do Without The Guide And Soundtrack. Any Chance Of This?
Is there any chance that we could exchange the extra copies in the fearless leader tier for lifetime unlimited? Or maybe have that as a possible addon? The digital tier is great, but I don't need all those copies but am interested in premium.
My EU editor had a chance to talk to Nick about his inspirations and future goals for Novus AEterno. Will be followed up with further coverage of the gameplay next week.
Just pledged and so far I absolutely love evrythimg about the game keep up the great work and can't wait to see more about the game. :D
Thank! we need all the support we can get right now.
Just pledged, cant wait to play!
Ok I'm on. Funny seeing all the familiar faces on these comments. Some of us really share similar tastes.
As a member of the press I think the main reason we haven't had much coverage yet is that this Kickstarter popped up out of nowhere during a pretty busy season with the console launches and Thanksgiving vacation smack in the middle.
My sites as well as many other are probably going to start getting on the bandwagon first thing next week though.
The character limit for alliance names is 32 characters. It was a very funny stream xD.
Sounds like a plan. not sure if its been asked anywhere, but as i am going to get the $300 Fleet pack or whatever it is called, is there a limit or what the limit is for characters in an Alliance name?
To bad i just missed the stream earlier, gonna watch the replay to see how it went :D
We will still do our best to finish the game but it will take a lot longer to complete and we wont be able to do a lot of the polishing and improvements it really needs. So be sure to tell your friends and everyone, we need all the support we can get!
I don't mean to be a downer or anything but I was wondering if this goal isn't met, what happens next for Novus AEterno.
ΧΑΧΑ, το φαντάστηκα :) Είναι πολύ καλό να βλέπεις Έλληνες να συμμετέχουν ή ακόμα και να ηγούνται τέτοιων projects. Συγχαρητήρια!
επειδή είμαι Έλληνας.
Ζω στην Ελβετία αυτή τη στιγμή. μου είπαν να γράψω περισσότερα πράγματα στi σανίδα, γι 'αυτό το έγραψε στα ελληνσα να είναι διαφορετικo. xD
First of all, good luck with the funding process. I hope you make your goals and get to release this game.
But now, I just gotta ask: What's with the Greek words on the whiteboard? :)
Okay, thanks! Will do so now.
@Jonjo you can create a account now, the rewords will be in Key format tat you just activate on your account.
I just made a pledge at the Infiltrator tier, as this game looks utterly brilliant and I really want to play it. Was just saying to a friend that we needed something like this a couple of days ago.
Anyway, I have a question. Do I need to create an account on the game's site now, or do I wait to be contacted so that I can create one with all of the backer rewards?
In any case, great looking game. Can't wait to see what you do with it and where things go from here.
At the 40$ tier you get the Kickstarter exclusive market skin (look under featured rewords, the first one) unfortunately kickstarter does not let you edit rewords so i could not add it to the 40$ tier.
Thank you! my recommendation, give them 1 month each and you keep all the rest, as a finders fee for introducing them to Novus :P
This game looks amazing, seriously can't wait. but i need to decide on something, whether to split the 8 months of premium with the friends accounts or just keep it all for myself >:)
Just got introduced to this from the Rooster Teeth YouTube channel, and WOW!!!!
This game looks amazing! This game looks to combine about all my desires from a video game into one!
The only thing I was wondering was if there was any way to get the KickStarter in game exclusives such as the starter planet and the fleet if you pay for just the 40$ package. Being a poor college student, justifying another 60$ on video games is a bit difficult. But I mainly wanted to know if there was a way to get these exclusives with only 1 copy of the game.
Either way, this game looks amazing, and regardless I know I will try to find another 60$ somewhere lol.
Fair enough, Can't wait.
If you applied to be a infiltrator before we started kickstarter you should already be ingame by now, but all applications after kickstarter stated will be delayed and only added in after we get all the kickstarter backers in so all new applications are on hold for the moment. as it is unfair to those who are supporting us at our Infiltrator tier.
I do have a question though, on your site under Novus AEterno you have Infiltrator access. How long will it take for an application to be either approved or denied?
