Defense Grid: Containment - Delivered!
We just minutes ago upgraded your beta of Containment to FINAL!! Congratulations, you are now proud owners of Defense Grid: Containment, the same exact expansion that will go on sale on Steam next Wednesday, January 23rd. Feel free to play it, talk about it, post about it, review it, etc. It's yours early because you are backers, and the rest of the world gets to follow in your footsteps.
We want to thank you so much for your support. You joined us this last summer on Kickstarter, we raised enough money to fund a new expansion, and we built it with your help, your feedback, your voting, and your support. It's been a huge deal, and we're so excited to have this new approach in working with you on our games.
Now, we aren't forgetting that you wanted (and we wanted) a full sequel as well, and we're still working on that. We're making a lot of progress in closing the funding gap between what we have and what DG2 will cost, and I hope to have more to tell you about that in the future. When it does get made, you'll get a free copy of DG2 as well. For now, though, we knew we'd have enough to make Defense Grid: Containment, and we did, and you're getting it, and we hope you really enjoy it.
Our initial Kickstarter business isn't yet complete. Later this week, we'll get the extra game codes out to those backers who are getting extra copies of the digital content.
Also, next week, we expect Penny-Arcade to have all the manufactured goods recieved from the different manufacturers and start packing things up to send to you: T-shirts, USB gun tower sticks, Fletcher Audio buttons, Posters, Signed Posters. It may take another week for assembly after they have the goods together and then they'll ship them off to you. Make sure we have any last-minute address changes.
The art book just went into first draft, and we'll be working on that further, getting the pdf together for those who receive that, and the books together for those that receive them.
The new Containment trailer is below. Thank you so much for making it happen!
The Hidden Path Team!
