Update #2

An elegant poster for a more civilized age.

Just a quick update as the campaign nears 50%.

First of all, a massive THANK YOU to everyone who's contributed so far and to everyone who's been spreading the word on the campaign. It really feels like it's going to be a big success!

Also, I appreciate all of your feedback and questions on the project. It's heartening to see that people are still excited about space trading games.

Finally, and the reason for the title of this update, I framed my personal copy of the poster recently and took a photo so I could show everyone what it looks like in person. Seeing as I didn't design it I hope I can get away with calling it absolutely stunning!

      I suggest you ask him to also make some pure graphics for the main menu or the loading screens, if there are any. Awesome. :-D
