This project's funding goal was not reached on August 23, 2012.
As promised, today we have added 3 new reward tiers.
1. New Reward: $20 -CO-OP Bundle: 2 copies of the game for you and a friend + Beta Access
2. New Reward: $25 -CO-OP Bundle Plus: 2 copies of the game for you and a friend + Beta Access + Sound Track (digital download )
3. New Reward: $30 -Extreme Co-Op Bundle: 4 copies of the game, for you and your friends + Beta Access
These are available immediately. We are hoping that in our final days that this will drive more traffic to our Kickstarter and get us the pledges we need for successful funding. In addition we have added beta access so that we can get some active beta testers at a more reasonable price.
Thanks again for all your support!

Co-Op mode will now officially be a feature of Orbital Blaster for Ouya and Tablets. This is how we are envisioning it working (at the moment).
Two co-op modes.
1. Play with up to 4 friends across the internet. You will each be on a separate transport ship, but you will be collaboratively killing in the same waves and levels.
2. Ouya will have an extra option, to split screen so you can play at the same time. And add up to two friends from the internet (friends list)
More to come, the idea is still rough sketch and we have not yet figured out how to tie it into the story line w/ save game progress.
We may end up making this a separate (multiplayer) mode in which is part of picking the custom levels made in the level editor. Not 100% sure yet.
But, you asked for it and we heard you!
Please help spread the word about Orbital Blaster, tell your friends and let others know why you backed us!
