E3 Coverage

Hi All,

As you (hopefully) know, we showed the game at E3 a few weeks ago, I wanted to take the time to give you a glimpse into the coverage we are recieving.  All in all, the press has been really positive, with the general caveat that "COD fans" may not like the game (which is fine by me, that is kind of the ****ing point).

Here are some shots from the E3 booth:

And, here are the press articles:

Also lots of folks who have seen our Kickstarter Early Reveal Footage (since a Kickstarter posted it to Reddit minutes after we shared it with you) have asked about the state of the game.  Yes, there are tons of bugs shown in that video, but we felt it was more important to show you the state of the game than to produce a polished trailer.  I understand that some of our Kickstarters can't resist the urge to post it up for the general public, and that is a hit we have to take to let you see content as soon as we can release it to you.  

Thanks,

Christian

TAKEDOWN E3 Gameplay footage!

TAKEDOWN @E3!

Hey Kickstarters!

Last week was E3, and we were excited to be showing TAKEDOWN behind closed doors to press at the 505 booth.

The week was a crazy one, with concurrent press interviews happening every half hour for all three days of the show.  One cool thing that happened is that I got word over the internets that two of our Kickstarters were at the show, NO_FEAR and Boomer.  Before we opened the doors, I decided we should get them into the booth before any press.  NO_FEAR had a VIP pass from Sony, so he was easy, but Boomer just had a floor badge, and security wouldn't let him through, so I had to get a little creative.  I went back to the 505 booth, borrowed a badge from one of our marketing folks, and then surreptitiously had Boomer swap it out with his, and get him through security.

Here are some pictures from the booth:

Also, here are some new screenshots!

Our original intention was to have hi-rez gameplay footage to release to Kickstarters last Tuesday, unfortunately that got SNAFU'd!  We are working on some new hi-rez footage and will get it out to you as soon as we can.

In place, here is a link to Gamespot's (unexpected) livestream, where they talked themselves past check in and got into the booth, taking me by surprise. :)

Also, here are some news articles we have gathered from the show:
