Update #11

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

      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

      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!

      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."

      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.

      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 !!!

      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. Fb_profile_picture.small

      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.

      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. Missing_small

      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!!

      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. Missing_small

      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.
