First and foremost, by making a donation to Super Motherload, you will be among the first to receive an advance copy of the final game. As soon as the game is ready we will send you a download link in order for you to install and play the game on either PC or Mac. As your donation level increases, so too do the number and quality of incentives; we truly believe we have designed packages that give you the greatest possible value for your money. Here are some of the additional rewards available at different donation levels:
- a Goldium Edition copy of the original Motherload game:
Re-live your past by re-playing the fully realized and definitive version of the original Motherload, the "Goldium Edition". It's every bit as good as you remember!
- Limited edition Super Motherload coin:
A special medallion distributed by Solarus Corp. on behalf of the Ministry of Mineral Recovery, awarded to only the most fearless and profitable of off-world miners. This coin is manufactured with the strongest silverium-unobtanium alloys mined during Solarus Corp.'s first phase of their Mars expedition.
- Super Motherload T-shirt:
Proudly display your affiliation with the leader of off-world mining industries. This authentic Solarus Corp. issued garment is specially designed to wick sweat and dust away from the skin and provide protection from radiation and chemical burns while also keeping the wearer cool and dry. As functional as it is fashionable!
- Super Motherload poster print:
Prior to Mars Expedition I, Solarus Corp.'s Sputnik XLVII was launched as a survey vessel whose instrumentation collected geographical and geological data. However, its most famous contribution was its iconic snapshot of Mars as it approached planetary orbit. The historic image that captured the collective imagination of the people's communist republic can now be yours to own, stunningly reproduced as an archival print.
- The official Super Motherload soundtrack:
In the dead of space, no one can hear you scream... because the cosmonauts are all rocking out to our soundtrack, which is cranked to 11 inside their helmets. Featuring the full musical score as arranged, composed and recorded by famed producer Eric Cheng. "KUZ NOW WE'S EATIN' FAT MEATS BEATS!"
- The Motherload short film:
Short documentary following the events surrounding the mysterious fate of drilling pod AM4-ND4.
When this short movie was first released we were floored. The guys at Mediapaja and Valtikka Films really did an outstanding job of translating the original Motherload game into film. The amount of work they put into it (especially the 3D graphics and the insanely detailed set design) is nothing short of astounding. So when we decided to create a Kickstarter campaign for Super Motherload we KNEW we had to make this a part of it... and we couldn't be more pleased that they agreed! In fact, they were willing to put together a full DVD which will feature not only the full film, but also an extensive making-of documentary, as well as commentary tracks and pictures. It's precisely because of fans who show such dedication like this that we knew we had to make Super Motherload!
- Super Motherload: The Boardgame:
And if we were excited about the movie, I'm sure you can imagine how excited we were to discover Matt Tolman's motherload-inspired board game Undermining! In fact, we had his team visit our office where we had the opportunity to sit down and play the game with him! In conjunction with the Super Motherload release, we are proud to announce that we have teamed up to produce an official SUPER MOTHERLOAD BOARDGAME. The game is being prototyped as we speak, and it's going to be fantastic. As soon as we have a finished prototype to show you, you can bet that we'll be showing it off. But in the meantime, stay tuned for an un-boxing video of Undermining where I'll be showing you the level of quality and depth that Mat brings to all of his games!
- We also have many special opportunities to be a part of and make a significant impact on the game! Please see all of our reward tiers listed to the right of the page.
We thank-you all in advance for your continued support! We greatly appreciate and value every contribution that you can make. There are no insignificant donations; every last contribution counts!
