Starstorm #12: The Final Stretch!
This is it! We're in the home stretch! Just 24 hours to go until this Kickstarter adventure comes to an end!
We plan to go out with a bang and lots of confetti and will be doing a livestream as we count down the seconds to the end of this campaign! It's going to be a blast, so I hope you will join us in the chat! The Official Awesomenauts: Starstorm Closing party will be kicking off tomorrow at 19:30 CET (check out what that means for your timezone over here). We'll be chatting, playing Awesomenauts, and having fun, so make sure you come and join in the festivities!
Our very own Olivier stepped into the recording booth today to record the voice samples for the exclusive Voltar the Omniscient announcer. Once the campaign is over, all backers who have pledged at the Bronze level or higher will be receive the Voltar and Gnaw announcers as a Kickstarter-exclusive reward. You can get a sneak-peak at the samples for that all the way at the bottom of this post. This is one of the samples that will play as you're launched from the Spaceship in your trusty droppod! Hope you like it!
Awesomenauts WorldWide Championship
We also have some cool news for players looking to prove their mettle in the competitive community! The organization behind the Awesomenauts WorldWide Championship has announced that sign-ups for their comming event are live now. If you're interested in signing up and battling for glory, make sure you gather up your friends and head over here to find out how to participate! The matches will start on December 19th, so there is still plenty of time to prepare. Slots are limited though, so don't wait too long with signing up!
The Awesomenauts WorldWide Championship is entirely organized, hosted, and run by our community members, so big ups for HarrysManor, Octocool, and Baynton8r for making this happen!
The Final Stretch
Just 24 hours to go, and we're still closing in on the Infinite Spectator Mode and Improved Replay feature stretch goal! Right now, we're just over $362,000, so there's "only" $18,000 more to go before we get there! If you happen to have any friends that haven't backed the campaign yet, make sure to tell them about it and invite them to join us for the Livestream over on Twitch.tv for the closing event. Even though they might be a little late to the party, they're still more than welcome!
