Encased Kickstarter Update #12: New stretch goal, social goals achieved
— Yessir, you heard me right, sir: we located a two-engine bomber buried in the sand. It’s almost untouched, sir! Full load of ammunition, seemingly intact. I would give a more detailed report, but the enemy’s closing on our position, and—
— Belay that, lieutenant. Here are your orders: take cover inside the fuselage. Use the portholes as embrasures. You should find two machine guns somewhere in the plane, they were standard issue. That may help.
— Sir, yes, sir!
— And have the sappers prepare the ammunition for detonation. There should always be a plan B.
In one of the far western desert sectors, the Kshatryas squad discovered an abandoned bomber, half buried in the sand. Unfortunately, you won’t have time to calmly analyze this find: your sentries have reported the approach of three garbage trucks, manned by Raiders and armored for combat. Worse, it seems like they’ve tapped into your transmission.
Bad news: there’s no fall back position. Good news: there should be a pair of machine guns onboard, and a ton of ammunition to go with them.
A new in-game encounter for our backers: epic battle versus waves of hostile Raiders!
We’re creeping ever closer to our main goal, all because of your support. There’s still another 35% to go, but your active involvement keeps us hopeful and energized. And maybe these new goals will help someone make a final decision to support the project.
Today we’ve uncovered one of the additional stretch goals: a new massive event for Encased. This event will be added to the game if funding reaches $105,000.
If you’re paying attention, you’ll see there are two more stretch goals still locked. We’ll reveal one of them when we reach 2,000 backers, and the other when our funds reach $75,000. It’s not that far. Hit social media, tell your friends, post on forums, let’s do it!
Now let’s talk about some guaranteed game content.
Yesterday, we announced the social media goals. By spreading the word about Encased you help to uncover in-game rewards that will be available to everyone.
This means the Community Wallpaper, new Hat Accessory and the Veteran Rifle rewards have all been unlocked!
With a dark blue felt finish and a polished skull badge, this hat is a real work of art. The fancy label hidden inside the lining reads *Roger&Roger*. This is definitely no common bit of headwear!
The workshop responsible for this item was never on the Committee’s official suppliers list, but Roger Zaretski, its founder, is a well known eccentric. The same eccentric who discovered gold in the sands under the Dome, built his own brewery, and is currently plotting to restore Spire station.
All that, and he makes great hats too.
*SVT-40, "Frau Svetlana"*
Otto Fasmer and the troops under his command have been missing since the end of the Korean War. The fourteen Wehrmacht veterans vanished from the 38th parallel in February of 1953, as if anticipating the end of hostilities.
From that date on, any accounts you may have heard of Fasmer and his men are strictly the unofficial stuff of military lore.
It has been said Fasmer and his squad relocated to South America. They were also witnessed at all the major hotspots of the Vietnam conflict. Whatever the fate of these die hard Germans, Otto's rifle, originally obtained on the Eastern Front, might be the single proof that Fasmer is a real living man, and not simply a myth.
His SVT-40, reworked and customized, has turned up under the Dome. Does this mean that Otto is still alive? If so, what is he doing here? The rifle raises many questions, and the same weapon must be the key to the answers.
Let’s push it, friends! The more Likes and Shares Encased receives, the more new content will be unlocked.
Project state info: $65,352 pledged by 1,740 backers. Hooray!
