6) first person or 3rd person! You decide, full customization 3rd person view or first person with a key press!
The Story mode in CDF Ghostship is the biggest part of the game. You play 3 different characters at 3 different points in the timeline of the story. The CDF Goliath, a huge dreadnought battleship has been sent into the Icarus System where the CDF have a colony and an orbital station. All contact has been lost with the space station and colony base and your ship has been sent in to investigate and help with any repairs if needed. You play the part of 3 characters : A pilot who returns to the ship after it has arrived at the colony. An engineer who is stuck in the back of the ship as the ship gets over run by aliens and zombies. A marine who cryo-tube has failed and you awake just as the ship is almost totally overrun. Each character is different and has different perks, each of the character start at a different timeline in the story of the CDF Goliath. As you play through the game you find out what has happened on the ship and the colony, you must then escape the ship and then the story-line has a huge twist which you will not be expecting!

Why does Ghostship need your Help?There is still much development that is needed and funds are needed for voice acting, animation and motion capture and some other aspects of the game I am not able to do myself. I need a bulk of the minimum funding for licensing. There are a number of licenses for software, sound effects and other aspects of the games development and commercial release that will not be possible without obtaining these licenses.
Reaching the GOAL
Getting the minimum funding is my goal, the minimum funding is primarily for the final development and licensing which i need in order to release this game to you at the end of the year or early 2014! Compared to most games 25k is a tiny budget for a game of this scope, As I am doing most of the development myself I only need a minimal amount for essential voice acting, music, motion capture, equipment and licenses!
Thanks for taking the time to look at CDF Ghostship

Risks and challenges
As with every project there are always risks and challenges. I have overcome most of these in building the foundations for a bigger more immersive breed of FPS and free roaming style. My dedication and enthusiasm as well as experience can be reflected in what I have achieved in just 6 months. I have had lo learn myself and over come many challenges in order to produce the alpha version.
The main challenge that now stands between finishing and releasing the game is gathering enough funding for the final development costs and most importantly licencing and marketing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
