      @JTD121 The large ship will be made out of Frosted Detail and the smaller one made out of Frosted Ultra Detail (http://www.shapeways.com/materials/frosted_detail). It will be paintable and I will be priming them with a grey spray primer so you can then do as you please. I'm actually looking into designing a display stand for them right now :)

      Question about the ship model available at the higher backer tiers. What will it be made out of, exactly? Will it be paintable/decal-able? Might there be a display stand of some sort, even?

      And I must say, this sounds like a slightly better fleshed out version of Transcendend; http://neurohack.com/transcendence/, which seems to have more-or-less stalled in development.

      @Joe Young: it's been previously stated that it will indeed be on a 2d plane.

      Question for ya.. is this a 3d game on a 2d plane? Will we be able to fully move around on the y-axis?

      That is a good comprise :) I'd be willing to shell an extra 10 for a soundtrack disc as well, not $25 lot a lot of kickstarters add for a soundtrack but 10 sure :)

    12. Celsius Game Studios Creator on

      I think at the very least the HQ soundtrack could be packaged on the disc in the boxed set.

      @Gregory Myers

      Actually that'd make for a good next tier, add another $10 or so and you get a separate soundtrack CD with the matching audio quality levels. I'd definitely shell out the extra for that.

      One question Colin. Is there any chance that you could put that wonderful soundtrack on the disc along with the game? If so, that would be fantastic.

      "Oh Splosions in time to music, Perfect! Nuthin like timing a finishing shot to a crescendo in the combat music.. :D

      Damn that's a nice disk. I'd love to pledge more, but I'm really kind of topped out with the collector's box. I did make another thread on /r/Games about this update, if that helps.

    18. Celsius Game Studios Creator on

      @Sandman No worries! I'm working on getting something put together before the campaign is over. Trying to get some combat music written and put together a nice little combat montage, because everyone loves 'splosions ;)

      Thanks Colin for the reply before BTW and fingers crossed on reaching the Stretch Goals as all the 'like to have' sound great to me. I'll be plugging away on forums and websites, Do you have any more videos planned for youtube towards the end of the campaign , that I could put up. Every little helps :D

      When I re-read the text of the collector, it's obvious the CD was not mentionned. But hey, for me it was natural; box = CD. I'm happy to see it's clear decided now, and hope we'll reach 75 k$ soon, 'cause we'll reach them anyway !!

      Glad you're promising a Linux version now. Knowing that I'll eventually have a copy of the game that I can play without dealing with WINE increased my pledge by a factor of ten.

      I'm so happy I upgraded to the collector's box! The disc looks beautiful, Steve has once again outdone himself. Here's to $100k and more.

      "Steve Courtney UI Design" has convinced me to increase my contribution. :)
