The REIGN Begins...

Hello Agents!  

From the moment we hit the big "LAUNCH" button, we've been wearing down our F5 keys. We seriously didn't anticipate the response we've recieved, you've blown away our expectations! You're all amazing!

Rest assured, we're reading all of the comments, both here and around the internet, and we're addressing the most common questions in the FAQ, which you'll find at the very bottom of the page. Here's a few of the most common questions we've received so far:

What distribution platforms will Satellite Reign be released on?

We are targeting Steam and GOG primarily with the possibility of other services as well.

Will Satellite Reign have DRM?

The option of DRM-Free versions of Satellite Reign will be available to all backers.

Will you be releasing on WiiU, Xbox One, PS4 etc?

We aren't going to rule out the possibility, but at this stage, we're concentrating on delivering a great experience for PC, Mac and Linux users first and foremost.  

Will Satellite Reign have a Multiplayer component?

Multiplayer is a part of our plans, we are really excited about the prospect of cooperative and versus play. However the initial funding goal is tailored to allow us to concentrate on delivering a strong single player experience. Stay tuned and keep an eye on our stretch goals for more information.

Can I pledge to your campaign via PayPal?

We're in the process of getting a PayPal option up and running as fast as we can. We'll send out an update when we're ready to go.

We've got more updates coming, but we had to let you all know how grateful we are for your support. We're so excited, and we hope you are too!

- The 5 Lives Team.

      Just when I thought my wallet would get a little breather... D: (:

      Anyway, I'm posting here since I have to agree with René; Holding off Paypal backing until after reaching your Kickstarter funding goal is a vital measure.

      I never heard such codswallop!

      @Michael, as far as I know, kickstarter is live only in US and UK for project creators so GBP or USD are the only currency choices

    4. Michael Zwirlein on

      And one question 5 Lives:

      Is there any sense in using GBP as primary currency? Ok Australia is still linked to Great Britain but... GBP are... unimportant :p

      Dollars great, Euro fine... but GBP. I cannot see the point, you could also use Australian Dollars instead to make it easier for you.

      @ René

      PP is mainly for people not having a CC. Especially in Europe that is quite common.

      So for these people PP is often the only possibility. Not everybody here has half a dozen of different CCs ;)

      Like Kahuna Kevin said, boxed copy, please. I always look for a boxed copy tier when I want to back a game on Kickstarter.

      And other t-shirt designs to choose from. I'd like a design that's themed on the original Syndicate. The current t-shirt doesn't tell me anything.

      I second Troy Baker. Cooperative play mode would be epic.

      Physical boxed copy tier please!

      I do believe you should hold on with the paypal until the goal has been reached. It would be so heart breaking to for whatever reason not reach the goal here because x% donated in paypal.

      I do believe this will get funded :D but its good to expect the unexpected that it might be harder. First 2-3 days are the easy ones. then it normally becomes hard road ahead.

      I usually been using PayPal to pledge for various kickstarters, but only the ones that use US Kickstarter that require an Amazon account. Fortunately, with the UK kickstarters like this one, it's possible to use the VISA card right away without any Amazon account.

      Cooperative play! I'd love to be able to team up with Syndicate mates.

      You don't need to press F5, Kickstarter updates the totals automatically :p
