We Heard You! All 5 Episodes for $25+

We have heard from a large number of you that you would love to pledge but you want all 5 Episodes at the $25+ level. Our rationale for not offering this was simply because we did not want to over promise and under deliver. We have been extremely cautious on this point. Perhaps too cautious. We have debated this point internally for some time. We were still debating it within the 24 hours before we launched our Kickstarter. Why? 

We want to deliver on our promise and will accept nothing short of that. 

We have landed on the Episodic Model for several reasons. 1. It allows us to release content earlier and faster. 2. It allows us to start generating revenue from episodes rather than waiting for the entire game to be finished. And to the third and most important point: It allows us to gather fan feedback as we develop and improve the quality of our episode releases. We find this model incredibly engaging and fitting for a project that is funded by YOU! 

We have looked at the budget and the timing along with our business model and feel that we can very safely promise to deliver you all five episodes for the $25+ pledge levels. We are also going to continue the campaign via PayPal in order to ensure that we can move forward and hit those stretch goals, if we don't make them here on Kickstarter. Besides, we REALLY want Jennifer on the team!

We WILL live up to this promise. We will need to work harder and longer than we have ever worked before. But we believe in Ambrov X. We believe in its potential to offer something incredibly special and unique. And we want you to experience that in its entirety as a backer.

To those of you who have backed us and given us such incredible feedback. We cannot thank you enough! Please help us to spread the word and let's get this game into production!

      @Leewelo We have been throwing around the idea of including some of Jacqueline's early Space Age short stories in the Compendium. There will also be a couple of essays from both Jacqueline Lichtenberg and Jean Lorrah in the Compendium.

      I agree with @Leewelo - I would love to get the books somehow even if it's not a part of this Kickstarter promotion.

      @Stephen "Stoibs" D Thanks for following and backing us!

      Glad I starred this and followed the comments/updates since discovering it yesterday. Looked great, though the episodic format directly tied to stretch goals was keeping me away initially.
      Glad to be on board now.

      I did the same as Wynter.
      If there was a way to get an ebook bundle of Jacqueline Lichtenberg's novels and short stories (at least the most ancient ones, 1969-1984) as an add-on, it would be superb.

      I chipped in 150 after seeing this update

      Thank you @Wynter!

      Okay, well if you are going to give me all 5 episodes for 25.00 (which seems inexpensive to me to be perfectly honest ), I'm gong to up my pledge to 50.00. That is comparative to a normal cost of a full length game.

      Besides, now I can be a third order channel. =-)

      Great! Thanks!
