CHECK YOUR ENGINES, COMMANDERS!
Elite: Out of the Darkness is nearly ready for launch: pre-flight checks are well under way and final countdown will commence mid-September, 2014, at the latest.
BACKERS: ENSURE YOUR LANDING PAD IS READY…
Distribution details and links to the eBook files will be sent out via Kickstarter message, so PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR KICKSTARTER ACCOUNT DETAILS ARE UP TO DATE. Initial release will be single-format (although readable on pretty much any mainstream device), and I want to make other formats available as soon as possible. In order to do this, I can’t email files to everyone individually. (If you’re really stuck, I’ll do what I can, but you’re Elite: Dangerous fans for hyperspace’s sake! The process won’t be that complicated and I expect your tech skills will be easily up to the job. ;-) ) Some help tips will be provided on the download page.
Frontier has approved everything: layout, text, and cover. Officially, we are good to go.
The new cover can be seen here: http://outofthedarkness.info/blog/elite-out-of-the-darkness-cover-reveal/
Barring the Earth being scythed by a black hole's relativistic jet or similar catastrophe,the next time you hear from me on Kickstarter will be to announce take-off.
Until then, commanders, fly well.
