"That's no Moon...it's a Stretch Goal!!"
The Third Stretch Goal is Revealed!
You've voted, and your voice has been heard! The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of allowing players to own planets. More details to come on what exactly this feature will entail, but, for now, let your imagination run wild as you picture yourself reigning over huge swaths of space!

Concerning Stretch Goals Above $100K
I've made the decision that stretch goals above $100K, starting with planetary ownership, will be realized as free, post-release content updates. Why? As you can see, there's quite a bit of functionality slated for the base game. As we start to pile on more functionality, it will obviously take more development time to complete. Instead of delaying the release, I'd like to just put the basic game in your hands, and then augment it with free, post-release updates to give you the stretch goal content.
Now, that doesn't exactly preclude the possibility of having these features in the first release - it just means that I won't promise that they'll ship with the game. If I do end up having more development time than anticipated, of course I'll try to put as much as possible in the initial release. But what I will promise is that you'll get the content, and you'll get it for free if you purchase the game!
Some people have requested more wallpapers. I can't help but oblige! You can download the full-res versions at http://LTheory.com/media.html!
Are you tired of these yet??

The Future is Bright!
We annihilated the original goal, blew past the first stretch goal...when will it end!?!? Who knows. But it wouldn't have happened without the enthusiasm of so many generous people who share the same vision of living that dream life in space. Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to bring that vision to life...I won't let you all down :)
