New Co-Op Tiers and Add-Ons

Hello Kickstarters!

First of all thanks to all of you who have provided much needed feedback in this crucial start-up phase of our campaign. It's been clear to us for some time that there's been a need for changes in the rewards and tiers, so we've been hard at work figuring out how to best go about them.

The biggest change is that we've brought the co-op packs down to a much more affordable tier, starting at the $45 Prologue Co-Op Pack, which are then included in all tiers above and progressively gets more inclusive from Prologue to the complete trilogy. This means everyone who pledge the $45 tier and up will automatically receive co-op packs

The previous co-op packs at $200 and above still exist, but have all been upgraded to complete trilogy co-op packs, and they still include their respective game identities for your co-op buddies.

We've also added a few physical and digital "add-ons" that you can add to your tier, so you have a much wider range of choices. 

(For those of you who have supported us before on InterstellarMarines.com please refer to this Kickstarter FAQ for Early Supporters on how to pledge with your existing game identity.)

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask, and as we've said many times for the last few days – THANK YOU so much for your continued support!

FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,
Kim & Mikael

All reward tiers include one copy of Prologue, and we've now added a few optional "add-ons" that you can add to whichever tier you choose. 

For all tiers:

  • Extra copy of Prologue – Add $15 for each copy 
  • Signed Poster – Add $100 (Free shipping worldwide) 
  • Signed Art Book – Add $200 (Free shipping worldwide)

For the $60 tier and above:

  • Extra T-shirt – Add $20 for each extra T-shirt (Free shipping worldwide)

You can get these add-ons by adding them to your selected tier amount. We will make a system after the Kickstarter that will ask you to select the add-ons that you want, based on the total amount that you pledged.

Example calculations

To get 2 copies of Prologue:
$10 (Early Backer tier)
+ $15 (Extra copy add-on)
= $25

To get 2 T-shirts and the trilogy (T-shirt included):
$100 (Trilogy tier)
+ $20 (Extra T-shirt add-on)
= $120

To get Prologue Co-Op Pack and Signed Poster and T-shirt:
$50 (Prologue Co-Op Pack tier)
+ $100 (Signed Poster add-on)
+ $20 (Extra T-shirt add-on)
= $170


Below is an in-depth list with a full description of the rewards you will receive for a given tier. To find out more about a given reward, please refer to the main project page.

Also, for every $5 pledged, you will receive an additional Support Medal on your Game Identity (depicted by the images on each tier description.). If you pledge $1000 or above you will receive 25% extra Support Medals.

Bold text indicates new rewards compared to the previous tier.

This is an "early bird" version of the $20 tier, limited to 5000 backers.

      Theres some great reward tiers in there. Pledge pledge pledge pledge!

    2. Creator Bill Schneider on November 1, 2012

      yeah ZPS awesome responses :)

      I'd agree its a lot for a low price, I don't disagree there! My main thing was I think many people want more of the game themselves rather than more copies to share out...

      Did that interview with TB go ahead? Any idea when thats coming out? (hopefully that will attract a huuge fleet of people...)

    3. Creator Francis on November 1, 2012

      I really want the T-shirt because the design is great but I don't care to have 2 or 3 copy of prologue. Maybe you could add some tier were you replace the multiple copy of prologue in something else as the T-shirt and add a 5-10$ shipping fees. I don't thinks that doing those cost more than 30$(I can be wrong still) This will surely make me change my pledge of 10$

    4. Creator Taylor Moe on November 1, 2012

      ZPS, you're doing a good job at responding to as many comments as possible, good job. I think this new add-on system will make a lot of people happy, and everything is fairly priced, like you said -- you don't want to waste all the money you will make from the kickstarter on the rewards for people. I'm going to be spreading the word about the project, I plead for everyone else to do the same!

      For the love of the game,

      "Luthreidrome" on the forums.

    5. Creator Mikki Klokkedal Sørensen on November 1, 2012

      Well, you will be getting another 15$ from me, atleast.. Just sad that the t-shirt didn't make it to the 60$ tier :P But let's see - i might end up there anyways :p

    6. Creator Zero Point Software on November 1, 2012

      Millian Singh said "You really should have launched an advertising campaign (with gaming media, etc) when this project launched. I am afraid you won't make it because you didn't properly support the launch."

      You're absolutely right Millian! We were so focused on finishing the video and project description, and we had this idea that the community buzz alone could build-up the hype around the Kickstarter, but obviously that haven't worked out entirely (although we're pretty proud that we've come so far all things considered). So we screwed up in the PR department. We're working extremely hard to get the press to notice us AT ALL, and time will only tell if it's too little and too late. But we will not stop trying!

      The6uest said "I like the T-shirt but you should have it as an addon to all tiers! ..even if you have to charge a little more for those not getting any other physical items.
      The poster and art book seem a little pricey though IMO."

      The thing is that we have production cost of the various physical goods and shipping costs to cover. It's not because we're greedy (because we're absolutely not!) but there's no point in reaching our goal if a substantial amount of the money is spent fulfilling physical goods, and the result is that we'll only have half the money that we need to develop the game.

      William Schneider said "My logic is that the majority of backers are and will continue to come in at your cheapest game-only tier ($10/20), as seen across basically every videogame kickstarter. These backers are on that tier for probably because they don't have the money to stretch out to a high tier, and only really want the core game, not all the add-ons."

      Absolutely! Our analysis based on the stats is that whatever we do about the higher tiers, the $10/$20 people won't shift , because that's their max. Maybe another copy of Prologue but no more.

      If you compare us to other games on Kickstarter we're offering waaay more at a lower price point already, and the issue is that we cannot change the tiers once they've been backed. I personally think getting 4 copies of Prologue plus access to the development from now to the completion for $45 is a great price. For $30 more you get FOUR extra digital pre-orders of First Contact. Maybe it's only me, but I think we're offering a lot there.

      We'll look into the trilogy add-on!

    7. Creator Bill Schneider on November 1, 2012

      I still think there should be a simple trilogy or extra (future) game add-on for the lower tiers.

      My logic is that the majority of backers are and will continue to come in at your cheapest game-only tier ($10/20), as seen across basically every videogame kickstarter. These backers are on that tier for probably because they don't have the money to stretch out to a high tier, and only really want the core game, not all the add-ons.

      Currently the only way to get the full trilogy is at the $90 tier, which is a LOT of money. At this you are also getting an artbook, an extra copy of the game, a 'unique identity', Hall of Fame inclusion, soundtrack and development pass. I think the price is prohibiting a lot of people backing for the full trilogy.

      I would see something in the $10-15 for each successive game- say $15 for 1st, $10 for 2nd and $10 for 3rd. Obviously this is a fairly low price point so perhaps you would want to raise the total by $5-10 but that is starting to get prohibitively expensive IMO. And you have to remember that this is people investing an extra $35+ in the promise of a game to be made quite far in the future, in a fairly high-risk industry, when they don't even have any more of a taste of how those are going to turn out other than some elemental demos showing essentially a tech demo. And its $35+ that wouldn't be otherwise pledged still.

      I personally believe you would get a fair swell of people backing for the bare-bones, no nonsense, pure game either as a unique tier or add-on (add-on would allow backers to keep their earlybird). I also think that anything major like this should be done before TBs interview goes out on youtube!

      Of course I'm a little bias as I am one of those people who cannot stretch to $90 but would consider paying an extra $35 for the whole trilogy. Still I hope my arguments are fairly impartial.

    8. Creator Inquisitioner on November 1, 2012

      Very nice, my tier just got much better.

    9. Creator Elfwyn on November 1, 2012

      hmmm... the rewards and upgrades look good, but escpecially the ad-ons look like they won't get the attention (on this price level) needed to contribute substatially toward the funding goal.
      Maybe you should discuss about ad-ons and rewards with your community beforehand.
      If production of physical goods are threatening the success of the product better raise the funding goal to 1Million to have some leeway.
      I would aim for the 50$ customer group to raise the lion's share. There are about 30k to 60k potential kickstarters out there.

    10. Creator The6uest on October 31, 2012

      I like the T-shirt but you should have it as an addon to all tiers! ..even if you have to charge a little more for those not getting any other physical items.

      The poster and art book seem a little pricey though IMO.

    11. Creator Millan Singh on October 31, 2012

      You really should have launched an advertising campaign (with gaming media, etc) when this project launched. I am afraid you won't make it because you didn't properly support the launch.
