Update 26: WE ARE FUNDED!
This is so incredibly surreal, you guys made it happen! The goal has been reached! It sounds almost crazy saying that, but here we are. All of us are staring at the screen right now with our collective jaws strewn across the floor. These last few days have been nothing short of amazing! The amount of support, page sharing, and generally incredible people we have seen from the very beginning has shown us how great our community has become. We cannot begin to thank you guys for everything you have done. Each and every one of you have helped us immensely, no matter how small your support. How does it feel to have succeeded everyone? On our side, we feel like we are floating on a cloud.
This is where the hard work begins for us. You have all done your part, in fact most of you went above and beyond the call! For that we cannot do any less but make the best darn planet management god-game the world has ever seen! But we want you all to be with us every step of the way! From here on out, we are building this game together. That means you better stay in contact! The forums are a great place to do that at www.theuniversim.com/forums. We are going to set up the Private Backer Forums soon and ensure that everyone receives the correct badges. All gameplay stuff in regards to Community Labs and such will be open to all forum users though as to not exclude any of you fantastic people from having your say.
You guys have already done so much, but should we try and shoot for a few of those stretch goals? The last 2 days are coming up, we may even see many more faces springing up to help out.
Let us know how you are feeling down below in the comments! I think I need a good glass of Ice Tea for the nerves.
You know we can never thank you all enough, but really and truly THANK YOU!
