Shirts and posters will be sent out as soon as the kickstarter is over. We are using a fulfillment house so we don't have to take away time from the game. And they are faster than us at boxing 2000 shirts. The ebook will be sent when done. Soundtrack around August.
This is for PC/Mac releases. This is not because we don't love linux, it's just that we already have our hands full putting this together for iOS, Android and now desktops. Linux may come further down the line - we hear you Linux users!
That is the goal. There are some potential problems, but the ultimate goal is that you can play on the bus, sit at work and waste valuable corporate time, pull that ipad out and pretend to be taking notes, then hop back on your iphone all while playing the same game.
Yes - it will have a new UI, better sound, more FX, and some additional features to capitalize on the much more powerful desktop system. Furthermore, the PC/MAC version will most likely have missions, aliens, ships and planets that are exclusive for some time to that version (these may eventually get re-converted into the mobile game as well so you can play the same save-game between them).
Regardless- think of the PC/MAC as the ultimate version.
