      Jesse, it would be cool if it showed that when activating the C64 graphics mode.

    3. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 20

      Thank you so much guys! We are already hard at work on the next steps... very exciting! :)

    4. Daniel Murphy on March 17

      Totally awesome! Great job getting the C64 mode unlocked!

      Can't wait to see the progress :)

    5. Jesse on March 17

      Wew lads!

      Alls I can say is:

      LOAD "HYPER SENTINEL",8,1

      The momentum is truly remarkable. Bravo team, bravo.

    6. John Hoggard on March 17

      Woo-hoo! It made 21K - that means C64 mode!!! Yay!

    7. Michael G. on March 17

      Congrats guys! Just cracked 3k on the android version, no mean feat considering the touch controls.

    8. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 17

      Matt, Anne-Marie and Jerason - thank you all so much, it means a lot to us and we are excited for the next stage of the journey! :)

    9. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 17

      Martin - thank you so much! Delivery estimate as per the reward tiers is July when we aim to launch the game for the full set of rewards. However we will work to get out some of the non-game rewards earlier where possible.

      Congratulations! I'm so excited the C64 mode squeaked in. I'm really looking forward to that!

    11. Anne-Marie O'Neill on March 17

      Yay! I've seen you guys at so many events and I'm so glad we'll soon be able to get our hands on a copy! Good luck with the production!

      Awesome job everyone, success on Kickstarter is tough! Can't wait to play the final version and looking forward to seeing your journey to completion! Congratulations!

    13. Martin Derbyshire on March 17

      Well done everyone and congrats Hewson on getting this beauty through. Would have loved the speccy version but alas it wasn't to be.

      Do you have any rough timescales on likely delivery so we can make a mental note on getting our hands on the fabulous final version?

    14. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 17

      Thank you Mr Smith! It is going to be a fun ride to release and we intend to do a few live streams along the way to show off progress :)

      Yes! What a terrific achievement! Congratulations to all of the team on gainng full funding... as well as a few cool-sounding stretch goals! I'm excited to see Hyper Sentinel complete development; especially known that we will be able to use C64 graphics mode :-).

      Congrats on passing the C64 stretch, chaps! Well done on a successful campaign.

    27. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 17

      Good morning everyone - WOW! We knew is supposed to be a "spike" on the last day or two but honestly did not expect this much of a spike. Amazing - we better get to work!!! :) Thank you so much for the support, we are over the moon and above all excited to get this game done! :)

      Well done guys on hitting those goals!

      Also well done for being my first ever kickstarter backing, nothing else has been worthwhile. Love me some Uridium and Paradroid.

    29. Mirco Geldermann on March 17

      Congratulations. Thank you for the work and I'm happy to support that great project.

      My favorite game was the C64's uridium, just sneaked it in nice one!!!

      Gordon Gibson on March 17

      Congratulations guys, sneaked over 21k right at the end. C64 mode is on. I was keeping an eye on it in case I needed to bump up my contribution to push it thru 21k.

      A D Smith on March 16

      The project has been a huge success but it would be wonderful to reach the C64 graphics level! I want to wake up in a world where we can play Hyper Sentinel in classic 64 style :-).

    34. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 16

      Even less now Jesse! This is amazing! :)

    35. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 16

      Wow that's very cool Alexis, great to have you on board!

    36. Jesse on March 16

      'er we go lads! 500 pounds to go -- C64 mates!

      I just supported this! I had given up hope on a new Uridium but it was indeed my favorite game- in fact I loved it so much I named my company after it! Uridium 3 Communications :) Now up and running 12 years! The '3' was for the game that never was.

    38. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 16

      Thanks guys! It really does look like it might just be in reach - on the edge of our seats! :)

      I would buy the C64 version alone!!...make it happen people...

    41. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 16

      Yes indeed, thanks Lord! We are over the moon and already getting excited about the next dev steps and live streams to show things off along the way :)

    42. Jonathan Port Collaborator on March 16

      We're having a bit of a surge right now - C64 mode is still doable.

    43. Lord Arse! on March 16

      Pros and cons... Still, best of luck for the last few hours :)

    44. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 16

      Thanks Lord! Amazing to be at 20k, didn't expect this! Yeah I know what you mean about the end time. It is because the start time was at 7am to get a full first day as the most important day.

    45. Lord Arse! on March 16

      Shame it's finishing at such a crazy hour. Not good for a final big push :-/

    46. Lord Arse! on March 16

      Well, it's cracked £20K!

    47. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 16

      Hi Jesse,

      Don't worry, whatever happens we will make sure it gets to you, the most important thing for us is delivering! :)

    48. Jesse on March 16

      Very good and thanks @Matt Mayatt and @Hewsons

      I am afraid the post is likely under budgeted for my particular situation... I am in the USA, looking at all the stuff being shipping, I don't think 10 pounds(something like $12.50) is enough--what are your thoughts?

    49. Andrew Hewson & Rob Hewson 3-time creator on March 16

      Yep - as Matt says sending out surveys allows us to confirm details. Good job snatching the Early Bird which opened up Jesse - cunning! :)

    50. Matt Mayatt on March 16

      They send out a survey sometime after the kickstarter has finished confirming addresses and stuff.
