Well fellow Limit Theorists, Black Friday has finally rolled around. In celebration of both the day as well as our extraordinary performance so far - 40% at the time of writing - I'd like to present to you a few new tiers that you all have been requesting.
A significant number of LT backers have expressed interest in acquiring access to the BETA at a lower price, possibly circumventing the "Hitchhiker's" equipment in order to do so. In the spirit of the day, I am offering the Black Friday BETA, a discounted BETA access tier. At this tier, you will forego the maps and guides, but will still have a copy of the game, a digital download of the soundtrack, and access to the closed BETA. In my opinion, it's a pretty awesome deal!
I've decided not to offer a lower tier for the prototypes, as that's still something that I'd like to keep relatively exclusive, especially considering the fact that the release of the prototype is rapidly approaching. I hope you'll be satisfied with BETA access!
In addition, I've had several requests for a double-download digital tier. I didn't include such a thing in the initial launch, because I was skeptical that anyone would want it. But, since people have expressed interest, I will present to you the Black Friday BuddyPack, a double-download tier at the price of two early birds!
Here's a summary of the two new Black Friday tiers:
$30 ~ Black Friday BuddyPack
Give the gift of infinity this holiday season, and treat your friend to a limitless expanse of open space to explore! Includes TWO digital, DRM-free copies of Limit Theory.
$45 ~ 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.
If you have more suggestions for Black Friday deals that you'd like to see, speak up, and let your voice be heard!
Stretch Goal Voting
As you are probably aware, the first stretch goal has already been announced at $75K and will include an in-game ship and station editor so that you can actually build your ships and stations from scratch. What you may not know, however, is that we've already started discussing what kinds of goals people would like to see beyond this on the forums. To weigh in, please visit http://forums.ltheory.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=21 and vote! Note that you don't have to be a registered forum member to vote, so it's really no hassle at all and will only take you a few seconds!
If you're interested, LT has already found its way into several media streams, despite the fact that I have not actively reached out to any media yet! Either we have really, really enthusiastic supporters who are doing the PR work for me, or LT is just infectious...or both! ;)
I'm not really sure what that last one has to say but...looks good? If you find anything else, let me know, I'm interested to see where Limit Theory pops up!
I'm no pro at social media, but I'm pretty sure that Reddit is a great way to get the word out about cool things. One of our loyal backers posted Limit Theory on Reddit, and I encourage you to up-vote it if you have an account!
It'll just get that many more eyes on LT, hence, that much more of a chance that you'll get that ship/station editor.
I've been absolutely stunned at the progress we've made so far. You guys are awesome, and I think it's pretty clear that my dream is going to be coming true. Wow. Thank you so, so much. I can't wait to put Limit Theory in your hands :)
I also can't wait to put more development content updates in your hands, which, rest assured, will be happening early next week as soon as I get back to school where I have my main development machine!
Thanks and keep spreading the Limit Theory Love!
