Starstorm Report #27: Starstorm Launch Imminent!

Good news, everyone! Awesomenauts: Starstorm, the expansion you helped fund, will be launching later this week! This is a big milestone for Awesomenauts, so we're dubbing this patch Awesomenauts 2.0!

Guns? Check! Ammo? Check. One-liners? Check. Pants? Who needs 'em!

We are putting the finishing touches on Ted McPain right now, and if all goes well he should be ready for battle this Thursday. Over the last couple of weeks he has been available in the Beta for all backers in the Iron Tier and above, and we're very very happy with the amount of feedback we've received. Many thanks to everybody who participated in the Beta! If you don't have Beta access, make sure to let us know what you think of Ted over on our regular Balance forum once you've had a chance to try him out in the Release version later this week.

We'll be sharing more details about Ted McPain, Starstorm, and the Awesomenauts 2.0 update on our Facebook page over the coming days, so make sure to follow us there! We'll have new updates every day! You can also stay up to date on all these sneak peaks through our Twitter feed.

Keys for Starstorm (and the Killer Koala icons, for backers in the Silver Tier and above) will be sent out over the coming days, so you should be able to get started with Starstorm as soon as the update goes live this Thursday! The keys will be made available on the Humble Reward pages soon, so those backers will be able to pick up their keys before Thursday as well.

Some additional news for all backers in the Silver Tier and above: the surveys for the physical rewards will be sent out soon! The Survey will ask you for shipping details, t-shirt design and size, your Bot name, credit mentions, etc. etc. Keep an eye on your inbox over the coming days, and make sure to fill out the Survey before December 31st, so we can get the ball rolling on production when we get back in the office in January! Humble / Paypal backers will receive an invitation for this later in the week, after our mailserver finishes sending out all the Starstorm keys.

We already got started with signing the Awesomenauts Vinyls for the backers in the Plutonium Vinyl tier and above. These records will carry the signatures of all people on our team, so they're truly a Collector's Item!

We totally felt like rockstars. This is why we got into the industry!

As we approach the launch of Starstorm, we'd like to thank you once more for making all this happen! Starstorm wouldn't have made it without your support, so from the entire team at Ronimo: thank you!

Stay awesome!

      so, im a little slow in my old age, is all the characters going to be available on Thursday or is it just Ted Mc Pain?

      IT HAS BEGUN.

      Will there be a way to alter our survey submission after it has been sent in? In case we change address from the time it is responded to and when the mail is sent.

      They did say they reached the goal for the next character. Highly doubt they would reach any further goals.

      Could you guys tell us how much money you've accumulated from the starstorm kickstarter + paypal? Would be nice to know if any new goals have been reached from paypal donations...

      Is there a reason why you post those updates on your Facebook page and not on the Awesomenauts page itself?
