      @Kevin - this was the Heroes of the Fleet mission pack, which you should have received already with any luck?

      @Adam -- a console demo is not something we're able to do at this stage I'm afraid.

      I'd love to try this out on the XB1 but there is no way I'm double dipping on this (already payed $50 for a $20 game) without a demo for the console version. So, do you guys have any plans on releasing a console demo?

      Hi Jared -- the Director's Cut will indeed be available for PC (both Steam and GOG). Anybody who owns the game on Steam already will be messaged with a substantial discount for the game (we're still working out the exact logistics of this).

      Anybody who bought the lifetime DLC reward as part of the Kickstarter will of course get the game for free.

      Hope that helps!

      Will the Directors Cut version be available for the PC? Will it be available for Steam or GOG? If it will be available for PC, how will the kickstarters backers be handled? Im anxious to try the Directors Cut version. Thanks

      Got a couple of questions:
      1) Any news on the t-shirts and hoodies?
      2) The "Heroes Of The Fleet" DLC is apparently available to purchase via Steam - since I pledged for a reward level that offered lifetime DLC, I am wondering if you can check if you've already sent me the Steam code for it or not, as I don't remember receiving it (and cannot seem to find it in my inbox here or via my e-mail account) nor have I activated the DLC via Steam.
      Thank you for your time and any assistance you can offer.
      All the best.

      I assume this is due to the retail release I spotted near launch, but why has Strike Suit Zero and all its associated products been removed from the Korean Steam Store? Nice way to make sure I never buy any of your products again despite supporting your Kickstarter. They were avaiable only a few months ago so this is a recent development... I only noticed due to the blank box in teh Steam Flash Sale for Strike Suit Infinity (which I also cannot buy now by at the discounted 75% we get for owning the original). I hope this is an error and not somethign to do with the release I mentioned above.

      Creator Jin on May 1, 2013

      To make sure I'm not being too down on BRG - I really like the style (although the ship trails are a bit much at times), the music, the promise of Oculus Rift support, the close integration with the Logitech joystick, the upcoming mod tools, and the level of post-launch support so far (taking an okay game to a good game).

    34. Missing_small

      Creator Jin on May 1, 2013

      For once, I actually agree with the complaints about reneging on the "exclusive" content promise. Day one, the game was available on Steam for less than a quarter of what I ponied up. No early access, no exclusive content (no beta for me - I found out about the Kickstarter a day or two late). As for early-access previews, there's nothing I saw in the updates that I didn't actually get sooner from gaming news sites. I like the game and am happy to support the genre. I understand where Born Ready is coming from; they only alienate up to 1674 ardent fans and can hopefully make more than that amount of dollars back from DLC sales. The loss of the multiple storylines was understandable although it severely hampered replay value, and I'm still hoping the Lifetime DLC will pay out.

      I'm still looking forward to what Born Ready Games will do in the future - just disappointed at the ROI of this Kickstarter. Words like "Kickstarter-exclusive Marauder Strike Suit, strictly available to our Kickstarter backers only" shouldn't have fine print that says "also available later, so not really EXCLUSIVE-exclusive."

      I agree with Pasha Kagan. I wonder if my 25% on steam will not be expired? So I can use that for stacking with the sale prices (75%)? If so, I am happy. I will wait for that sale.

      Creator Pasha Kagan on May 1, 2013

      Hey guys,
      I just got two 25% off coupons for infinite. It's not exactly fair that as a backer who has SSZ on Steam I could have got it for 50% off. So, I overpaid due to my hastiness. If I have waited, I could get a bigger discount on Steam.
      Take this into consideration please.

      S.D.> I personally despise permanently-locked DLC's, and feel (again, personal opinion), that such ideas are of the same disgusting ilk as launch/release DLC. (...) I applaud Born Ready Games for by relenting in this regard (...)

      The problem is that, from another point of view, they get the best of both worlds: the ability to effectively "charge" $30 or $35 for permanently-exclusive Kickstarter DLC, and then turn around and sell it to the masses anyway at the "correct" price. The "fact" (lie?) that it was going to be a permanent exclusive is part of why I pledged at the $50 tier in the first place; not because I like permanent exclusives at all, but because I liked the idea of the game and didn't want to be permanently shut out of content for it even if it meant jumping through a fairly large financial hoop.

      That said, because I do despise permanently-locked content, I am (in a way) glad that it's not permanently locked at the same time I feel a bit hard done by. So, well. I'll just keep it in mind for any future games Born Ready Games makes, I suppose?

      I personally despise permanently-locked DLC's, and feel (again, personal opinion), that such ideas are of the same disgusting ilk as launch/release DLC. I'm one of those who feel strongly that we should vote with our dollars/pounds & voices to soundly reject such trickery in general, and make those concepts unwelcome on Kickstarter. I applaud Born Ready Games for by relenting in this regard, but it is clear they have a lot of learning to do in terms of PR and consistent messaging (Jamin is learning quickly, though! ). Having five thousand mini-publishers cannot be an easy transition for them, and in this brave new world, a top-notch community manager is as necessary as good legal representation! So, Jamin & BRG... still feel that Kickstarter was the right way to go? ;-)

      Along those lines, how goes work on Linux? Care to share a gag reel of in-progress porting work? You could turn your frustrations into our amusement!

      Yeah, their key sending system could use some work. I got my Marauder right on time, but no Raptor yet. I'm kind of surprised they haven't thrown together a script to take care of the mailings. Doing it all by hand seems a bit tedious and error prone.

      Worst case, change the name and the color scheme and keep the stats the same and mass release it.

      Creator Born Ready Games on March 27, 2013

      Hi João -- apologies for the radio silence, I've been away at PAX this past week and am still catching up on everything.

      When we launched the Kickstarter campaign, we had a significant number of people raise concerns that the Marauder suit wouldn't be available to them at a later point. Quite a few people very vocal about this. The fact the suit was KS-exclusive meant that - due to their financial situation at that time, perhaps - they'd *never* be able to get the suit. You mention yourself that your not a fan of exclusive content - presumably for a similar reason to this - and I'm of the same mentality.

      By making the suit timed exclusive, we open the content up to those who were unable - or couldn't afford - to get it the first time around, whilst ensuring our KS backers are entitled to the appropriate privileges. While we haven't got an exact date yet, it'll be a little while before the Marauder is available to all -- hence why we released the new Raptor suit, too.

      Apologies if this has disgruntled you in any way, we're simply trying to keep as many people happy as we can. It's a balancing act, and this was the logical solution.

      Thanks, and do drop me a message if I can alleviate specific concerns,

      Jamin

      Creator João Carlos Bastos on March 27, 2013

      Can you please comment on why you are planning to make available to purchase soon the Marauder Strike Suit (https://twitter.com/StrikeSuitZero/status/311789049000120320), when you clearly mentioned on your campaign: "the Kickstarter-exclusive Marauder Strike Suit -- unavailable anywhere else!"?

      I made a financial effort to pledge at a higher tier to get some content that was supposed to be exclusive to this campaign, and again, “unavailable anywhere else!”, just to find out that this is a complete lie.
      I find this lack of honesty to your backers very upsetting. You claimed something while looking for supporters/funds, and shortly after you changed your tune.
      Had you not mentioned this was Kickstarter-exclusive, and unavailable anywhere else, I would adjust my pledge accordingly.

      And for the record, I’m not a fan of exclusive content at all, and usually avoid campaigns that have such content.
      But if I pledge for something that is “promised” to me as being exclusive, and thus I’m asked for more money for it, I expect it to be such.
      This decision, and the way you’ve been avoiding commenting on this (both here on Kickstarter and on twitter), is very disappointing, to say the least, and I will obviously take this into consideration when considering to purchase or support any further titles or content from you.
