Update #5

We did it!

2 comments

Well ScrumbleShippers, we've actually done it. With a full week left to go, we've hit our $8000 target!

Thanks to your generosity and support, I'll be able to work full time on the game for at least the next year, taking leaps and bounds towards our goal of the most accurate space combat sim ever made. We've easily beaten the dreaded mid-Kickstarter slup, and are well on our way to our stretch goals.

Speaking of stretch goals, I took a look at the ScrumbleShip paypal and noticed we're $1,000 over our normal cashflow, so I'm reducing our stretch goals by that amount. Our additional music goal hits at $9,000, and AI ships flying around the game has slipped to $11,000!

I'd also like to introduce a $12,000 stretch goal: SpaceCows. People have asked where the "butter" material comes from; Let's show them! I'll have Nezumi make a cow model, complete with oxygen pack and bubble helmet, then code them into the game. Cows will inhabit green areas of ships, producing milk, butter, cheese, and other luxury foods.

If you keep telling friends, posting about us on forums and reddit, and just generally getting the word out, we can easily hit our planned stretch goals! (And maybe even figure out what that final ??? is.)

Cheers,

-Dirk

      At long last, the mystery of where space butter comes from is solved: SpaceCows of course! :D I love this. I think they would be a great touch, and really help ships feel more alive.

    Get a deluxe copy for yourself, a deluxe copy for a friend, your name in the clone name list, and have a block of your choice 3D printed and sent to your house. It will be 6.25cm across, the same size as the physical voxel listed above. Custom voxel damage upon request. Some models won't be available, and we'll need to hollow out the model to keep the cost down. Please add $20 for shipping outside the US.

    Get a deluxe copy for yourself, a deluxe copy for a friend, your name in the clone name list, a ScrumbleShip poster, and get a custom voxel model, the same as above, except that we pull out all the stops - No component restrictions, and nothing gets hollowed out. If you drill into this thing, it will have internal voxel structures just like in the actual game. We'll also ship you a poster, because you deserve one.

    For $3000, Dirkson will grab his top hat, wax up his handlebar moustache, don his best tweed coat, and take the locomotive to your location with a suitcase filled with a selection of the above prizes. Seriously. Only available in the continental United States; For some reason trains won't cross oceans.
