Hey everyone, hope you're enjoying this winter season :)

I'd like to let you all know that the monthly development update / video, which would normally arrive tomorrow, will be slightly delayed this month.

I'm currently home with family for Thanksgiving, and am constrained to my laptop, which won't quite cut it for making the video :| I'll be heading back to the old coding cave on Sunday, and expect to be preparing the update as usual by Monday.

So, that being said, I would expect to see the update around December 3rd.  Apologies for the delay and thanks for your patience!! :)

      Frequent updates, like clockwork, with substantive development status, afford you plenty of leeway. As noted by other backers, LT's update schedule and content are amongst the gold standard for video game Kickstarter projects. Of course, other games in other genres may not be in a position to produce such lush video updates for a variety of reasons (hand-drawn assets, story-driven spoilers, etc), but the videos are only a part of your updates.
      Keep up the good work!

      Now, how am I going to celebrate the end of the month? I demand you release a video at once, sir!

      Just kidding, now I can treat it as an early Saint Nicholas gift. Looking forward to it.

      @Mark Newcombe - No I skipped that one - too many other projects around the same time :)
      Lots of the tabletop RPG kickstarters tend to be a bit light on communication though. Makes the ones that do communicate look awesome!

      Thanks for the update Josh,
      I look forward to seeing your updates every month as they are both enjoyable and of substance.

      Enjoy your family time and thank-you for caring enough about your community to give us the heads up.

      @JHewett - you didn't back a game by PM from the studio (22 _ _ _ S) did you??

      Creator Andrew Pierce on November 29

      This has been the most reliable kickstarter project I've backed as far as updates are concerned so being out by a few days is easily forgiven, especially when you also let us know it's going to be a bit delayed :).

      Creator JHewett on November 29

      Seriously Josh!?!
      I have backed projects that go MONTHS without updates, all whilst backers are getting frustrated.
      Your Kickstarter is pretty much a textbook example of how to do a kickstarter right, pre, during and post the funding period.
      Your updates are regular and meaty...a few days wont kill us.
      I appreciate your work mate and your work ethic pretty much guarantees you a bright future. Take some time out for family though - they always take priority. :)

      Ohnoes, such a sin! You must leave your family make that video right away or much woe will happen!

      Just kidding, don't worry and enjoy your thanks giving and be careful to not miss any steam/gog/gmg sales. :)

The Hitchhiker's Map will give you information concerning the starting regions of a handful of different universes. You'll see planets, space stations, asteroid fields, jump gates, jump holes, and more.

    BLACK FRIDAY BETA . Yeah, you're hardcore. You like making your own way. You don't need maps or guides to navigate the infinite universe. But what you DO need is early access. With a BETA key in hand, you'll be fighting, trading, negotiating, and dominating, well before the public gets to do so. Of course, you'll also get a download of the game, as well as a digital download of the full soundtrack. *** PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A SPECIAL TIER, AND HIGHER REWARD TIERS DO NOT INCLUDE IT! ***

    THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDES + ALL PREVIOUS TIERS . Maps are good, but insider information is even better. Many Bothans died to bring you this detailed information. The Hitchhiker's Guide, much like the Hitchhiker's Map, will give you a wealth of information concerning a handful of universes. Unlike the maps, however, these guides will include detailed planetary economic data, planetary point-of-interest data (including goods bought/sold, ships manufactured, etc), locations of rich ore fields, optimal trade routes, faction dispositions, and more.

    THE PROTOTYPE(S) + ALL PREVIOUS TIERS . If you can't wait long enough for the BETA, that's okay...because at this tier, you'll receive exclusive access to a PRE-ALPHA combat prototype/playable demo, coming in early 2013. You'll be among the first players in the world to experience the epic fleet combat of Limit Theory! You'll also get the chance to provide me with feedback, so if you don't like something, you'll be in a good position to get it changed long before release.

    THE MAP, THE SIGNATURES + ALL PREVIOUS TIERS . Included in your physical Limit Theory box, you will find a physical map of Universe 3827, the default starting universe for new players (of course, since the universe is infinite, the map cannot be complete!) While other players wander around in the (metaphorical) dark, you'll be whipping across systems, doing business as you please without ever having to wonder where you are. Note that this map will show at least twice as much as the Hitchhiker's Map version! Moreover, you will also find that both the map and box have been signed by me!

    THE SHIRT + ALL PREVIOUS TIERS . CDs and boxes and maps are all good and well...but when you want to show off your support in a flashier, more stylish way, you're going to need a shirt. Not just any shirt, though. You're going to need something that says "hey, I'm all about unbounded space exploration, and that's why you should come over here and talk to me." How better to do so than by having a little slice of an infinite universe slathered across your chest?

    THE POSTER, THE SIGNATURE + ALL PREVIOUS TIERS . Ok, so your chest is covered, your disc drive is full, your box shelf is boxed, and your map shelf is mapped. But what about your wall? It's probably feeling a little left out in the cold. But you can fix that. How about adorning it with a large, signed, numbered Limit Theory poster, printed on high-quality, glossy poster paper?

I write down all of my best ideas regarding technical features as soon as they come to me. You will receive a laminated, one-of-a-kind element from this set of notes! Unfortunately, I only have a limited number of grand ideas...lucky for you, that means you'll own a truly-unique piece of LT history (and possibly have the blueprints of a technological aspect of the game that has not been publicly disclosed)!
