Update #3

TorchShips update

Comment

We had a nice bump in backers due to Marc Miller's mention in his Traveller 5th edition kickstarter - please check it out if you haven't yet.

I also just backed CLANG - a new kickstarter project from Neal Stephenson to accurately simulate sword combat on the PC.

We have 6 days left and are at about 20% of the funding goal. Things look grim at the moment - but it is still possible to get there. Please continue to talk about TorchShips on the net and don't forget we are doing a referral program (see previous update for details). I have gottten a lot of great suggestions from you on sites that I had missed on my initial public relations/marketing effort - thanks again for that and keep the suggestions coming.

I'm also adding one stretch goal - if we hit the $40k funding level we will add full modding support to TorchShips - not just a scenario and ship editor. 

There will also be a new reward tier added at $110 ($130 for international) if you'd like a physical copy of the game and manual. That should be added to the project page in a few hours.

Thanks again and I'm looking forward to completing TorchShips together....
