Let's do this!
Please CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD!!!
then stop by to see my latest LOLCAT contributions...okay, okay....see what's new with Ground Branch Update
regarding the new update, when and were is this new plan going down? its late and im tired so i think i didn't catch on, anyways im excited, count me in. -dizzybone out
Aww, come one mate. We ended on numbers that add up to 6, couldn't we also of ended the post count on 666!
good catch zeep
I'm just commenting to make the total amount -not- 666.
was discussed Jesse... can't confirm yet
Did you guys try teaming up with AMD or NVIDIA? mentions in their twitter could have very well get the funding.
please visit Official Website for further updates
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?
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!
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.
Read the latest post as you are in talks to have game published by unkown could this be a Publisher like Bohemia being people have stated the game footage reminded them of Arma? I really want this game to get made and sad the project didnt hit goal.
Sorry to see you guys didn't make your goal. Please keep us posted here if you can on any future plans for the game. Good luck to you!
Sorry it didn't work out - it looked really good. I hope you manage to get backing somewhere else. Also, if you set it up with some kind of founders program then let us know as you can still have my money!
So whats next....Don't let this be the end!!!! I have waited a looooong (too long) time for you guys to do this. All of us guys from Fort Chaos =FC= support you.
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.
wow... $111,111 I think this game was going to be lucky... :(
Oliver: Then how do you explain
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.
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.
Don't give up Black Foot! You got 1,897 backing you up and we eagerly look forward to helping you launch Ground Branch however you decide to do it.
@ThomasN do not think you can re open
It might be disheartening to not get funded, but you've got a genuinely good product here, BFS. I'm sure you'll be able to make it a reality in other ways. Good luck!
111111 it's a nice looking ending you gotta admit :D
Hey guys, I actively read the forums, and sometimes post... you have a true supporter in me! I will be following you guys and helping in any way that I can. It doesn't end here! -Jon
And just like that its over hoping blackfoot studios has a hell of a plan B THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN!!
@ 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.
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!
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.
I will be watching,
For the next step, let me know what I can do. Thank you for letting me participate in this KS project.
The lowest pledge amount should've been 25, not 15. Whatever you guys will make it some other way.
No way lol! Thats pretty sweet!
For the mother of all salamanders, if you want AN ADDITIONAL competitive shooter happening on the PC in the near future, back http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cadenzainteractive/retrovirus/comments. Also: It has COOP/1v1/Singleplayer/DOTA-Mode/DRM-Free/easy level editor/makes coffe and brings it to you while you sleep... and drinks it.
Finally backed the project! Best of luck to you all.
EBDA andy myself have been waiting for this game since its inception. If this Kickstarter does not go through, I hope a publisher takes notice that we tactical PC gamers are not going away any time soon.
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.
@ Nick - If anyone is up for it then do it now! :)
Well if 1882 people have pledged and we need $450,000 thats $240 each. I am up for that. Anyone else?
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
Did not realize you guys were based in Columbus, OH. I'm from Youngstown.
Quadrupled my pledge to ultra.... good luck you guys. I want it I want it I want it I want it!!! :D
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...
