Notes: Ship has been without a squadron leader for over a year but a new officer from Mars has been assigned recently. Ship is primarily maintained by robotic crew and captain with the officer and pilots dedicated to performing off-ship duties (Search and Rescue, Scouting, Surveying and Anti-Piracy) via onboard mecha. The captain of the ship has final authority on all on-ship and off-ship matters.
Currently one of the usual mecha pilots is participating in a cultural exchange with a well respected Space Elf mecha pilot. This has been ongoing for approximately one Earth Standard year. In addition to human/Space Elf crew, ship has approximately one hundred robots (From fully sentient AI crew members to cleaning drones).
If we continue at this pace throughout the campaign we should be able to reach 100%. Being at 20% at the day 6 mark does seem low, and we've ramped up our efforts and contacted more Youtubers and press. Ideally we really want to hit that Partial Voice Acting stretch goal if possible! We've already noticed a few folks from the audiences of Youtubers we've contacted to trickle in. So we hope this will build more interest in this project!
I've also edited the front page slightly to make it clear the principle funding of this Kickstarter will be for the DLC expansion story content, which dwarfs the original game's length. The original release will be remastered for free, for everyone who bought Stargazers, while the DLC expansion is $7.
The game on offer in the pledge levels will be: The original game (remastered), the expansion DLC patch that fills out the rest of the story, several hours worth of new content. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
