Going Strong - and hello Torch KS - the ancestor of the Pyro GX
THANK YOU ALL!
We now have more than 3,000 backers and are off to a rollicking start.
There have been some very passionate discussions on both Kickstarter and our forums and that kind of passion is what is going to help us make our goal and blow right through it.
There were a lot of requests for the iconic ship the Pyro-GX.
As we are a prequel to the original, it did not make a lot of sense for us to have that ship at the beginning but rather have a precursor or ancestor to it, and we had planned to bring that in at a later date.
However, we heard your call and we put it to the community to vote as to how you wanted us to handle the release of the new ship - called the Torch KS (we may change that and let folks pick a name, but that is the working title for now). Here is one of the early concept versions of it, there will be a lot of changes coming up, but we wanted to show you the first pass.
As the community voted overwhelmingly to add this as a stretch goal, we thought it was only right that it becomes a community event.
The Torch KS will be FREE to all backers who bought a game package during the campaign when our Kickstarter total reaches $650k.
Yep, that is right, it will be FREE to all those that backed for the game packages during the campaign.
However, it is an EXCLUSIVE BACKER ONLY ship, that will NOT be available after the campaign is over, there might be future iterations for late comers to acquire either through game play or purchase, but this particular version will be gone forever once the Kickstarter campaign is over.
People will know that when you are flying the Torch KS that you were one of the brave souls that made this all possible.
Help us spread the word, by sharing our updates and Kickstarter page as well as emailing gaming buddies so we can all enjoy the exciting arcade style game play of the original Descent series, and so much more with Descent Underground.
