The Final Countdown, duh der der duh...
Environmental Destruction Stretch Goal Reached!
With PayPal bringing in pledges in the background, we've managed to bring our combined total up to £440,000! Thanks to everyone's support, you'll now be able to wreak havoc on your surroundings!
That leaves us with 3 remaining stretch goals. Help us flesh out the world and story by bringing on Russell Zimmerman to write for Satellite Reign, and add two new factions with their associated districts!
With a few mere hours remaining, we've added some last minute add-ons to help push us closer to the remaining stretch goals. These two new add-ons are for Kickstarter backers only and for those backers already pledging on the TRANSISTOR (£58/USD$90) tier or above.
To add one of these items to your pledge tier, simply add the correct amount of funds to your pledge. And at the end of the Kickstarter you will receive a survey where you can specify which add-ons you require (remember to add £3 for Delivery outside the UK).
So if you have family or friends' names you'd like to see in the game, now you can! (Thanks to Kahuna Kevin for the suggestion). But even better than that, you can name a landmark in the game! For example, it could be a street, a statue, a building or a bridge.
Feel free to add on multiple NPC names if you wish, add £10 (~$15) per name.
*All names of NPCs and Landmarks are pending the approval of 5 Lives Studios. 5 Lives Studios will be responsible for assigning names to landmarks.
Also don't forget our other Add-ons available for Backers already pledging on the LOYAL CITIZEN (£13/USD$20) tier or above
With the clock ticking down and 3 stretch goals remaining, it's time to send out one last round of propaganda. We need new recruits and fresh bodies! To save you some time, we've knocked up a couple of examples that you can use.
Facebook: “Hello everyone, I have recently supported this awesome game called Satellite Reign on Kickstarter. It is a spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars which is now in its final hours of funding. Help us reach the next stretch goal. Have a look at the link below, and if you like what you see, please consider pledging. Thanks! http://support.satellitereign.com”

Countdown Twitch Reminder
Don't forget, during the final 2 Hours of the Kickstarter, we'll be Live Twitch Streaming from sunny Brisbane, Australia. So come along, ask us questions, point and laugh at our weird faces, and maybe we'll show you some of the very early work in progress versions of the Kickstarter videos, and rejected content from the early beginnings of the Satellite Reign project!
As we build different systems in the game, we will often create a mock-up visualisation of the system before we start programming and creating final art to see if the idea will work, and what things we may have overlooked. Those of you who have backed the project now have access to the backer only forums and will get to see lots more of these videos as we go through production. Today, we are showing off our first UI mock-up video to the public so everyone can get a taste of what the backers will be seeing over the next year.
It's all coming to a close so soon! Let's all do what we can to make sure this campaign goes out with a bang! Thanks again for helping us get this far.
