Swarm mode + short split-screen video.
Last time we spoke we were teetering on the edge of defeat. Now we are pretty much in for a sure-fire success. We are more than happy to continue development on a game we think you will play for hours and hours on end.
Speaking of continued development we would like to announce a new 'mode' for SlipSpace called Swarm. It's an endless, cooperative survival battle against hordes of aliens and pirates. What's great about this announcement is that it has two parts:
1. A basic version of Swarm will be made available in a few weeks time, downloadable from our website. Think of it as a demo/teaser for SlipSpace, and also as a thank you to all our backers in making this kickstarter successful.
2. This will be available for everyone, anywhere...free of charge.
If you have any friends that won't/can't make a pledge before the end of the kickstarter then no fear, we will be setting up a pre-order system on our website soon after the kick has ended using Paypal.
We will also be revamping the website making it faster to load and cleaner to look at. We will also be adding a forum and development blog.
There is a newsletter signup on the front page of the website for anyone who would like to keep up to date with what we're doing. This will be released on a 2-4 weekly basis once we have our newsletter system up and running.
Last of all we've made a really short video of split-screen testing, moving pictures is always better than static, here it is:
