The final 24 hours- A New Reward Tier, The Key, New Shirts, and an invite to the Final Countdown

Hello Kickstarters! 

It’s been a constant swell of excitement over the past few weeks, with each day bringing up a new set of passionate backers from all over the world; every one being super gracious with their pledges and their votes of encouragement. Thank you all again for your absolutely incredible support! 

We are now down to less than 24 hours. The time for annihilation is near for this Kickstarter project.

And we have a few last things to announce.

$140 TIER (Digital Only)
This is a special tier created for those who don’t want any of the physical goods but still want the naming rights. This includes everything in the $90 tier. Every procedurally generated planet needs a name and if you contribute you’ll be immortalized by being among the list of those uber enough to have a planet named after them. Just to be clear this tier includes no physical goods at all.

NEW ADD-ON: Game Loaded USB Key - $20 Add-on with $95 pledges and above* 
Available to our $95+ backers. We haven’t finalized the design of this key yet but it will likely be in the form of the commander. We’ve heard you loud and clear that you want a physical copy of the game. A USB drive has been on our agenda for a bit and everyone has convinced us that this is a good idea. Get ‘em while they’re hot!

* Does not include $140 Tier which is digital only. 

NEW SHIRTS
Awesome T-shirt - $30 Add-on with $95 pledges and above*
Fans have rallied around our Design Commander, John’s awesome face. No surprise, it smashes into planets and eats galaxies whole. Now we want to give you the opportunity to wear it.

* Does not include $140 Tier which is digital only.

Dev Team T-shirt - Added bonus for $500 pledges and above 

As a bonus, we’re adding the t-shirt designed exclusively for the Uber development team for pledges into the $500 tier and above. There is no Add-on charge.

YOU'RE INVITED TO WATCH THE KICKSTARTER FINAL COUNTDOWN LIVE

Join us as we watch the clock wind down on our Kickstarter project! Watch a live video stream from our studios in Kirkland, where we’ll spend some time talking about the Kickstarter experience and even more time about the kind of planetary annihilation we dream about as game designers and developers, as well as just fans.

We’ll also be happy to do a little Q&A with you.

Countdown starts at 10 AM PST.

Check it out here: http://www.twitch.tv/uberchannel

PS. If you want a sneak peek at the stream, we’ll be testing it live today.

      hello I am just wondering if it is possible to still get extra alpha keys for $20

    2. Creator Whiterabbit-uk on April 21, 2013

      Hi, Just wondering where things stand at the moment. It's getting near the project time of delivery. How will backers be informed. Thanks in advance for any info.

      If you send updates via email, I have to say i've backed well over 60 projects over the last 12 months and am getting several updates from various projects every day. I'm stuffed full of morphine, so rarely bother to check any (just don't have the strength), so I apologise if you've already answered this question elsewhere.

      Regards

      Stephen Browen aka Whiterabbit

    3. Creator Christopher Ochs on September 16, 2012

      @Dagoth if you are who I think you are tell feli hi and get in touch you punk!

    4. Creator Simon on September 15, 2012

      And someone should turn the Awesome Head into a kind of Unicron. His robot form a giant transformers-esque robot and his planet form the awesome head.

    5. Creator Simon on September 15, 2012

      @Uber
      Congrats!

      @DagothAgahnim
      I'm still listening too!

    6. Creator DagothAgahnim(Menarra) on September 14, 2012

      Congrats on the funding! So happy we get a full orchestral soundtrack, I'm /STILL/ listening to the Total Annihilation songs 16 years later, they're great.

      In fact, I'm putting them on again right now in celebration!

    7. Creator Zeus on September 14, 2012

      Oh! I forgot the "additional $15 for international shipping" ... Could you add +$15 to my pledge of $250 please? :/
      I really want the "signed printed copy of the Art of PA book, that showcases the concepts and conceptual design of the game."

    8. Creator Darren Myers on September 14, 2012

      @Chris usually it takes time for kickstarter to get them the funds, and i guess thats when they'll start putting together the survey and start (possibly) working on the game development further. After the surveys get sent out they'll probably start looking as to how many shirts,USB drives, ect. need to be ordered/shipped.

    9. Creator Chris Bacon on September 14, 2012

      Well, so what now? It would just be nice to have a final word update announcement on where things head from here.

    10. Creator Alek on September 14, 2012

      Best of luck to you on the game, make my donation count! 8)

    11. Creator Chuck Nelson on September 14, 2012

      Wow, hit all the goals, impressive!

    12. Creator Gord Cluthe on September 14, 2012

      I've never spent $250 on a game before (even with massive amounts of DLC).

      This one was a no-brainer. I've put so many HOURS into each game from this franchise, no other RTS can come close to it.

      Thanks for the streaming countdown today (and introducing some of your ladies *ha*), - you are the only guys who can pull off something like PA and keep it true to it's roots.

      I look forward to offering constructive feedback in the Alpha and Beta ... and without a doubt - the finished product.

      A great start to this journey - good luck folks !!!

    13. Creator Simo on September 14, 2012

      Congratulations on the impressive result! Good luck on the work ahead.

    14. Creator Davidb on September 14, 2012

      2.2 million and still going. Good luck on all the hard work ahead!

    15. Creator Jason Sentinella on September 14, 2012

      2.1million and counting? You guys did a good job with the pledge rewards. Some incredibly tempting offers there probably made the goals easier to obtain. Till next year then... I await my key's :)

    16. Creator Dan Wetzel on September 14, 2012

      @Joshua - If you want the flash drive, it's a $20 add-on to your pledge. For instance, if you're at the $100 pledge level, you would pledge $120, but choose $100 pledge level. However, they are unable to edit the descriptions of the different pledges to add the note in them to say "Add $20 if you want a flash drive." It's exactly the same as if you are wanting extra game keys.

      I'm assuming that after the Kickstarter is done, you'll get a survey or something where you can say what you want done with your "over the pledge amount" money. For me it would be "One flash drive, three extra game keys" or something to that effect.

    17. Creator Six on September 14, 2012

      Congratulations on hitting all the goals!
      Really looking forward to the documentary but a bit worried about the game itself, with such high expectations it can't really hold up... or can it!?!?

    18. Creator Joshua Alexander on September 14, 2012

      I went to the contribute page, but I didn't see the $20 flash drive addon, even though I'm in that pledge bracket. Is it not added to the list for purchase yet???

      Regardless, thanks to everyone, backers and devs, for getting behind this project like crazy. I never imagined this game would have such a loyal backing. I always hoped, but NEVER imagined. Good job everyone!!

    19. Creator Darrell Johnson on September 14, 2012

      You need to make some "awesome" head stickers. They would look AWESOME slapped on my 50 at the range.

    20. Creator Simon on September 14, 2012

      Also want that Dev shirt but can't afford $400 extra :S

    21. Creator Jairo Cornejo on September 14, 2012

      @Jabberwok: That trailer is just for showing us the game concept.

    22. Creator Simon on September 14, 2012

      If these people deliver all this in a year, they'll have the touch http://www.youtube.com/watch… actually they should listen to this anyway :P

    23. Creator Jabberwok on September 14, 2012

      A couple questions, if here's the right place for it:
      Will this game have persistent wreckage and destructible terrain elements, like TA?
      Also, will it have variable elevations like TA? The planet surface in the trailer seems to be flat.

      Those were a couple things that really set that game apart from lesser RTSs for me, and I'd love to see that stuff return.

    24. Creator tedd on September 14, 2012

      check out this kickstarter game its funding is ending soon too

    25. Creator Remy van Vliet on September 14, 2012

      We need moar stretch goals! This train is still going for the next four hours! ;-)

    26. Creator Zimeon on September 14, 2012

      I'm quite sure these guys will deliver, they've done some amazing work before so I'm sure our money is in the right pockets!

    27. Creator Donghun Kang on September 14, 2012

      @ponyphoney

      2013 july - kickstarter make pledge page says. but not sure.

    28. Creator ponyphoney on September 14, 2012

      has there been a release date announced?

    29. Creator Steve Guns on September 14, 2012

      Pretty f*ing amazing! :) But yeah, now it's up to Uber to make their promises come true, we did our part ;)

    30. Creator Craig Janssen on September 14, 2012

      Congrats to all! Looking forward to the game :)

    31. Creator Donghun Kang on September 14, 2012

      @Chris Stratford

      Me too. But HELL YEAH! We did it!

    32. Creator Chris Stratford on September 14, 2012

      Honestly I did not think there was any chance of getting to that point 3 days ago.

    33. Creator Chris Stratford on September 14, 2012

      Well done PA team.

    34. Creator Aichon on September 14, 2012

      So long as you pledge the money for the add-on now, yes, you can pick your add-ons in the survey later.

    35. Creator LordKevin on September 14, 2012

      2,100,000!!!!!!! O yeaaaaaa!!!!!

    36. Creator Hannah on September 14, 2012

      Are we SURE we will get to pick the add ons later, I just really don't want to miss out on that sweet sweet loot!

    37. Creator Ezra on September 14, 2012

      Erik I think we'll get to choose when we receive the survey e-mail from Über.

    38. Creator Erik Hawkins on September 14, 2012

      How do we pick those add-ons?

    39. Creator Jairo Cornejo on September 14, 2012

      Nice music is not boring at all.

    40. Creator Unclever title on September 14, 2012

      Good heavens, $2,076,006 with just 6 hours to go. I have no idea where Paypal donations are but even if the other $23,994 doesn't come through Kickstarter I think a documentary is going to happen!

    41. Creator Ogaday on September 14, 2012

      However good an orchestral score is, once I've played for 8 hours straight, I'm sure I'll be tired of it. I need an alternative dubstep soundtrack XD

    42. Creator Daniel Mons on September 14, 2012

      From what i have read somewhere, add ons will be choosed after the funding is done, you will receive an email, dont worry.

    43. Creator Chris Van Leuven on September 14, 2012

      Yes to Jeremy Soule, just upped my pledge for the USB drive.

    44. Creator Donghun Kang on September 14, 2012

      how do you choose add on? there's no option page on managing pledge page. Already increased to 535 though. usb is better than emailing.

    45. Creator Pierre-Yves GATOUILLAT on September 14, 2012

      +1 for Jeremy Soule, TA soundtrack was epic, it would be perfect here.

    46. Creator Seonor on September 14, 2012

      This might have been asked before, but will there be an option for classic (four borders with a piece of land between them) maps?

    47. Creator Nocrow on September 14, 2012

      I absolutely love the documentary on Double Fine.
      Really hope we make it to 2,1.

    48. Creator Steve Guns on September 14, 2012

      Same here... The full orchestra stretch goal is very nice as well but for me the most important stuff was up to the 1.8mo. Glad that is all there.

    49. Creator Seth on September 14, 2012

      Agreed with moon, I cannot wait to play i hope the alphas available at least around christmas (or abit after) Lord i haven't been so excited for a project in ages.

    50. Creator Moon werewolf on September 14, 2012

      The documentary would be nice. But I love that all the gameplay elements are there ^^ I can't wait to play this game.
