Funded! This project was successfully funded on October 6, 2011.

Update #1

Holy Shi....

To Our Supporters:

To say that we are overwhelmed would be an understatement. In just 5 days we have achieved our funding goal - and we cannot thank you enough.

Our team understands how hard all of you work for your money. Not to use a cliche, but these are tough times, and our team feels that as well. It makes us that much more appreciative of what all of you have done. 

This appreciation does not just go out to those posted funds to us. For those who do not have the finances to pledge to us and just support us through twitter, facebook, gaming blogs and the articles that have been posted all over the web about us - we thank you as well.

We were committed to the game before we put this kickstarter up, but your enthusiasm really has galvanized us. Basically this game has now become our religion. Before we wanted to make a game that was really awesome and a kick to play. Now we want to do all that but really make a game that changes the way the way mobile games are produced and the expectation level of the consumer and press.

In the next couple weeks we will be showcasing the different t-shirts for you all to vote on and decide which gets shipped. Poster designs will be up for a vote as well. And to our one and only Fleet Admiral backer - oh man, you're gonna be the commander of the entire Star Command armada. We are going to make. You. Famous.

Also, since you kick so much ass here is a screenshot of a fully upgraded medical room on the ship. With an intergalactic ambassador to boot. More to come, stay tuned.

Cheers,

The Warballoon Team

P.S. The team is cranking this video in celebration:

      Congrats on reaching your funding goal. I frist learned of Star Command from the article on the GeekDad blog. This is the first project I've backed on KickStarter. I'm really looking forward to playing the game.

      I'm only sorry that I couldn't have donated more than $25, but being a student money is more than tight - but I want to see this project succeed and flourish!

      I've been a long-time follower and I'm really pleased to see that you've achieved your funding goal so quickly and can push on!

      Fingers crossed you can ship my stickers and button to England! :D

      I'm glad I got this announcement right before I found out Syndicate was being re-made as a FPS. There are too few games right now that are actual strategy, and I'm glad Star Command is going to adhere to old-school sensibilities. Awesome News! Can't wait for this to release.

      @Brandon

      Probably not any faster at this point, but higher quality things like music, sound effects. We might be able to have the iPad release at launch and just give us options for other things that we can't really talk about (some stuff for our facebook fans comes to mind...). No developer would complain about having funds for development - it all helps

      Will the extra money you will be getting go to making the game come out faster, or more game coming out when it does, or just more and better game to come continuously after release?

      And I can't wait to see what the Fleet Admiral is going to look like. ;)

      Congrats Guys!

      As a huge Star Trek and and even bigger X-Com fan I flipped when I first heard about this project. I knew I had to donate. Keep rockn' the work and good luck.

      Also I had the same question as Nathan about the shirts. Can we purchase one later? Thanks!
