      sad the game didnt make it. I was really looking forward to this one. Please update people using kickstarter so we know when/where to buy this wicked game when its finished! Great job again guys and sorry it didnt reach the goal.

      Well least it ended at a cool number - who else can say their project received the same numbers for all digits on the amount pledged?

      Creator ThomasN on July 8, 2012

      At least this helped to gain interested people. Please inform them via this Kickstarter's Mail-System how they can still preorder the game

      Yeah, sad it didn't get funded, like Gregory I hope you'll still give us updates here if the game has found other means of getting finished!

      damn shame! But instead, let's look at it this way: we'll all be so much happier when this project finally reaches a sulotion for funding the development, because it WILL happen, this idea is too good and too genuine to not finally sail home. Godspeed!

      Creator Arvid Haglund on July 7, 2012

      So sad to see that 'we' didn't reach the goal, hopefully this'll work out some other way though, cause in my eyes this has shown a lot of promise.

      Creator Nick on July 6, 2012

      I am so sad this didn't happen, I'm a huge fan of realistic stealth style gameplay, so this fabulous looking game is right up my alley.

      Now this might be a stupid question, but can y'all try again? If you can I would like to help as much as possible. Being a quadriplegic I couldn't really do the leg work =)
      But I'm decent at editing videos (you can check some of my work http://www.youtube.com/user/HellOnWheels357/videos) and I would be honored to put together some type of promotional video or really ANYTHING. I'd love to help.

      Also I agree with some of the comments people are leaving having to do with the pledging. I think putting an individual price on each of the products available (game, soundtrack, field manual etc..) and different types of payment options is a great idea. I just really hope this game takes off, I haven't been this gung-ho about a military game in a LONG time... and that's almost the only genre I play.
      Y'all got a life long backer in me.

      No matter how BFS decides to proceed, I'll gladly give them my money to help bring this game to fruition. I'd be curious to know what the demographics are of the people who pledged to support this game. I'll be 40 this year and while I admit that CoD / BF can be mindless fun, GB represents what I think of when I recall "real" tactical FPS games.

    22. Missing_small

      Creator John Gregory on July 6, 2012

      Yes, I for one am still willing to help however needed. You have a base of backers now, sure most are willing to still help, so please keep your head up and eyes forward. Let us know what to do next.

      @ ricardo oyon rodriguez it's not good you would think fps gamers would jump at the chance to get a game that would be very different from call of duty etc. i know im sick of the copying of nukes and chemical weapons attacks in fps games it's overdone. hopefully ground branch will come out at some point.

      Creator Ricardo Oyón Rodríguez on July 6, 2012

      Unbelievable. What happened with players nowadays? How is this possible? I just can not imagine what was wrong, why an adventure from Double Fine does 800% of the pledge and not this title. I just do not understand videogames anymore!

    31. Squirrel.small

      Creator ThomasN on July 6, 2012

      Plan: Re-open, set 100k, get funded, do stuff, open another one (this time with demo.exe), get funded, finish game.

      I would like to thank all who have pledged for Ground Branch. While it is fairly certain that BFS will not reach it's goal with such short time left, the fact that what was pledged is still amazing to me.
      Please keep in touch at the BlackFoot Studios forums as I am fairly certain that they will still communicate to gamers there.
      Thanks everyone.

      I really hope this goes through. Sorry I could only back 15 bucks I wish i could give more but I just don't have the money. I am a big fan of the old ghost recons and rainbow sixes. Good luck. Oh and if the money doesn't go through are you still making it or what. It looks like you guys have gotten far into development.

      @ Cheznut - In hindsight that would have been a good idea, yes.
      @ Nathan - I was born in Youngstown! - John
      @vekoma - That is one option to move forward. Unfortunately it still needs to generate enough money to be able to pay people along the way.

      they should've made a custom pack where you could choose on # of games,soundtracks,field manual,etc and put a price on each item and for the higher items just make them limited or high priced

      Creator vekoma on July 6, 2012

      I suggest a Minecraft-like approach on funding. Everyone who pledged like $20 minimum will get the alpha build and all the updates. After the funding finished, the price will be like $30 and the game will be purchaseable through your website only. When it reaches beta, $35. Final version for 45$. Further expansions and map packs could be founded via crowdfunding.

      And please move to "Gameplanet Lab", which offers more payment methods. The credit card only thing here is holding me back in funding for several reasons...

      Creator Berno on July 6, 2012

      I've upped to $140, hope this comes off.
      I'm quite sure that Rogue Spear sold more than 1800 copies... as I'm sure Ghost Recon did... so where are these people? How do we find them! Do we just need more time? Is it bad timing with kickstarter fatigue and E3? Just getting lost in the mix.
