Forced On Steam and Backer Rewards

Hi Everyone,

This last month has been quite hectic, between releasing Forced, fixing bugs and planning our next step we haven’t had a lot of time for anything else. However, we have managed to get the pipeline moving on the kickstarter rewards, so you won't have to wait for much longer! Here’s a little overview of what we’re working on.

1. Network
2. The Last Man Standing
3. Kickstarter Pledge Rewards
4. One Week Special Sale

1. Network
We’ve been taken a bit by surprise by all the network issues people have been experiencing. However, we are determined to get this under control. While we have been doing small patch work in order to remove the worst latency issues and help people as much as we could, we are also looking into other solutions that will hopefully be much more stable. This is our main priority at the moment and we hope to deliver a better solution by the end of the month. 

2. The Last Man Standing
Some of you may have noticed and have maybe already tried the new Last Man Standing mode in Forced. Calling it PvP might be a bit of a stretch but it is a sort of versus survival mode, where you can show your friends who is the boss in Forced.

 3. Kickstarter Pledge Rewards

The in game pledge rewards (i.e. the armors and the “are you not entertained” function) will be implemented into the next steam build. We will email you information on how to get your in game rewards as soon as the build is released. During this week we’ve finally gotten a real chance to start working on the physical pledge rewards. We are so excited about getting to make box cover art, art books, strategy guides, etc. For some of us this is when it starts sinking in that we actually finished the game! We are hoping to be able to send you all the rewards by the end of this month or start of the next.

 4. One Week Special Sale
As we do not have the resources to have a continuous production of the physical items, we have decided to have a one week special sale on our website. Giving people a chance to get a t-shirt or a box cover version of the game, etc. This is both for people who have joined us after the kickstarter, and thus didn’t have the chance to get the pledge rewards, but also for you guys. In case any of you regret not getting a specific item or wanted more copies of a specific item. So, from the 15th of November to the 22nd of November you will have a one week opportunity to get either of the four physical rewards, namely The T-shirt, The Box Cover Forced, The Art Book and The Strategy Guide. Prices will be announced on the 15th.
