Spec Ops Rocket Rangers!

We have several exciting news to cover in this update, so listen up!

Rocket Ranger Reloaded - PC Demo

The PC demo has been released last week, and we've already gotten a good amount of great input (the demo has been also updated to support gamepads such as the Xbox 360 controller)! Most of all, we hope all backers are using this opportunity to share the demo with other potential backers in order to widen the reach of this campaign! Your active support in doing this will be key in assuring we have a chance of reaching the funding goal!

New Pledge Boosts!

We have some exciting pledge boosts to announce, starting with the enhanced $29 pledge which now includes blueprints for all the secret Nazi weapons our agents have been discovering! 

Our agents have captured these ultra-secret weapon blueprints!

Besides a full copy of the game, the original Rocket Ranger, manuals, soundtracks and more, these are newly-added digital blueprints in super high-resolution, chock-full of technical details and were stolen directly from the vaults of the III Reich! All backers at $29 (and above) will now get digital copies of these great, ultra-secret diagrams and those who have already pledged at this level do not need to change - your pledge is automatically upgraded to this boosted version!

Good men have given their lives to capture this material!

In addition, a special poster-quality, PRINTED version of one such diagram (your choice!) will be included at the $89 & higher pledge-levels...

      Pretty sure you meant add $5 for shipping if you live WITHIN the USA.

      Just played the updated demo (feels like a Unity special).

      Overall I have to say I am not that fussed currently, the controls feel wrong, loose or something it does just not feel comfortable to use (PS3 controller) - I wish I could be more accurate as I am someone who has done control systems for games before and hate this kinda feed back! (Sorry!)
      But sometimes there is no logic or science to control systems it is just a magic combo of variables. (Standard Unity controllers do suck, as do all assets available - though some touch and tilt ones are good)

      Besides the controls it feels/looks more like something I would want on my iPad rather than PC.

      @Cinemaware: Okey dokey, no worries. Cheers for the quick reply!

      @RetroGeet: You can order as many T-shirts as you like, just add the total to your pledge The shipping cost is per item and is necessary to cover postage costs for international shipping, unfortunately. Since this is based on weight & destination, unfortunately we cannot cover these costs...

    7. RetroGeet on

      Are we allowed to order more than one t-shirt? Would I still have to pay international shipping for the add-on if I've already paid $30 shipping on the $250 pledge level?
