Limited-Edition Boxed Copies and an Interview with Chris' Beard.

Posted by 5 Lives Studios (Creator)

Greetings Agents,

After a lot of requests, and some late nights talking with manufacturers, we're pleased to report we're adding a new reward tier for limited-edition physical boxed copies of Satellite Reign!

This limited-edition physical boxed copy will be available in the new £55 / $85 USD tier and inside your box, you'll get a high-quality fold-out disc case containing the game disc, colour booklet, and the game soundtrack on an audio CD.

We'll also have a limited early-bird tier for the boxed copy at £52 / $80 USD, so get in fast to grab your limited-edition boxed version even cheaper!

All backers who have already pledged beyond this new tier will have the option to swap their extra digital copy for the physical boxed version at no additional charge. We'll send around a survey at the conclusion of the campaign where you'll be able to specify your preference.

In other news, Chris and his beard will appear in a video interview tomorrow on The Krautfunding Show, where he'll be discussing even more details about the world and design of Satellite Reign. We'll provide a direct link to the show when it's live so you don't miss it.

We're getting closer and closer to that big ol' 50% milestone; let's see if we can get there before the weekend! And we'd like to wish our American friends a happy 4th of July!

- The 5 Lives Team.

      Sorry folks, I meant "If not," not "If so." Bollocks.

    2. Metal Face on

      Wait, do backers above and after the "Two Discs, One Box" announcement get the option of the boxed set too or only the people who backed before the announcement? If so, I'll be crying into my polo shirt / hoodie.

      @Chris moir
      We haven't decided on a date for the release of the novella, but it will be released with the game at the latest. We'd like to have it available sooner, but we can't confirm anything just yet.

      our first reward addition has arrived: All backers on the CORPORATE SOLDIER tier and higher will now receive a digital Satellite Reign novella written by the award-winning author Russell Zimmerman, known for his exceptional work on the Shadowrun series.
      does this get released along with the game? or will this be out earlier?

      And now I'm backing :< Thanks for the inclusion of the boxed copy.

    6. Mauricio Vives on

      So the the box + discs + booklet is $50 more (plus shipping) than the $35 digital version... doesn't that seem steep for what you are getting? (even assuming that an extra copy of the game is included; that's not clear)

    7. Xaviz on

      Thank you so much for listening! Can't wait to change my extra copy for a boxed version! =D

      oh just saw the post below, so if we're in Australia we can just check 'in the UK' and not worry about shipping charges?

      Also you guys should obviously move down to Melbourne, the weather is way better we have less toads and I could thank you profusely for bringing a part of my childhood back ^_^

      Well my pledge just went from £16 to £68...Guess it'll be mee goreng for the rest of the month :P Hope a lot of other pledges are increasing similar amounts, I want to see this hit a lot of stretch goals ^_^ Syndicate on the Amiga 500 is a very fond childhood memory :)

    10. Chris Doak on


      Totally doing that :D

    11. Jacob Shaw on

      Top notch update guys. I really hope you hit the target on this one.

    12. Vortex - Syndicate?Satellite Reign 3.93 on


      I'm sure it grants 2 keys as the tiers with the boxed copy include the boxed copy + 1 digital download.

    13. Morten Lund on

      I'm wondering, if switching one extra copy of the game for a limited edition box, still grants 2 license keys in total? Or are we trading two digital copies for 1 limited edition box?

    14. Mark Fillmore on

      Sweet! I'm definitely going for the boxes copy.

      Great update guys!

      @ Rasmus
      £3 shipping does cover both the t-shirt and the boxed edition shipping.

    17. Anders Öster

      The box looks awesome already. Upgrading!

    18. suppafoxe on

      Awesome box!!!
      Will swap for sure my 2nd digital copy!!!
      Thanks guys, really appreciated

    19. Rasmus Frost on

      Errrhh I meant Resistor.. sorry lol.

    20. Rasmus Frost on

      Just to clarify.

      I'm a transistor backer. I will get sent a boxed limited edition + a t-shirt...

      will the 3 £ shipping charge.. cover both? If not.. why? :) You could possible send the items together.

    21. WeiMi - Nellies pirated Bard from Oz on

      @Vortex - and it'll eliminate customs issues for me.
      I'm already afraid about my WL2 and SRR packages :(

    22. Ubersnug on

      Awesome, pledge updated.

      However, disappointed at lack of 'Bob' being included!

    23. Felix on

      Great news! I am still hoping for a t-shirt add on though! :3

    24. Jörn Huxhorn

      The early bird gets the cheaper box. ^^

    25. Dablue

      @Stephen: i stand 100% corrected ;)

    26. Vortex - Syndicate?Satellite Reign 3.93 on

      Makes sense to ship the physical rewards from the UK. I'm sure shipping a ton of physical rewards to all over the world from AUS would be way more expensive then shipping them from within Europe.

    27. Stephen "Stoibs" D

      @Dablue These guys are Aussies with their location at the top of the KS page listed as Brisbane (70km down the road from me even) hence the confusion... So I guess their warehouses/Offices are actually located over in the UK despite that fact if we need to add shipping.

    28. Jussi Myllyluoma

      Is the booklet a physical version of the Art Book?

    29. 5 Lives Studios Creator on

      Hi Marco,
      Anyone on the TRANSISTOR level or above can either keep their rewards as they already were, or you can exchange your second digital copy for the limited edition boxed version. All you'll need to do is specify your choice in a survey we'll send to everyone after the Kickstarter campaign is complete.

    30. Vortex - Syndicate?Satellite Reign 3.93 on


      If you are in any tier above the tiers that includes the boxed copy you can replace 1 of your digital copies for a boxed. Can't replace both digital for a boxed though

    31. Vortex - Syndicate?Satellite Reign 3.93 on

      Upgraded as well!!! Hopefully you went over the math again and again to ensure you wont actually be losing on money once it comes to pledge fulfillment.

    32. Marco Brieden on

      If I pledged TRANSISTOR level I have the option between 2 game keys or 1 game key with box. As in I can decide between having a box or letting a friend have the game as well.

      Is that correct?

    33. Maxeren on

      Upgraded! :D

    34. 5 Lives Studios Creator on

      Sorry Stephen, to clarify, there's no new additional cost for shipping if you have already pledged for a tier with physical rewards.

      Anyone outside the UK will have to make sure they have an additional £3 for shipping.

      Sorry for the confusion.

    35. Dablue

      5 lives! Do you also have offices in Holland ? ;P

    36. WeiMi - Nellies pirated Bard from Oz on

      Great - upgraded. And just £3 for shipping outside the UK?

      Thank you very much for this

    37. Dablue

      .... Unless you are an australian living in the uk

    38. 5 Lives Studios Creator on

      We're in Brisbane, there is no additional cost for shipping Stephen

    39. Dablue

      @stephen, yes because Australia is outside the uk

    40. Dablue

      Also .. Love the 2 girls one cup reference ;)

    41. Stephen "Stoibs" D

      Are your offices in the UK or Brisbane? Do Australians need to add additional shipping?

    42. Dablue

      Sweet! Now all we need is a Bob addon and we are golden ;)
