Interviews, a Community Video, and a Teaser!
As we're closing in on the 3,000th backer and the magic $100,000 mark, we're ramping up the team and press outreach in an effort to increase the momentum in this (expected) slow middle period of the campaign.
For those of you who have already backed us, we cannot thank you enough for your support!
But we still need your help!
Since the momentum has expectedly slowed, we have to keep encouraging you all to keep spreading the word about our project.
Judging by our Kickstarter stats we're not gaining enough traction in the social media, despite having a lot of followers on both Facebook and Twitter, so we kindly ask you to engage with us in our updates to help get the word out.
The more likes, retweets, comments and shares you make – the more people will be aware of our project! (comments and shares being the most important for visibility on Facebook.)
The other part is that a lot of the pledges so far have come from Kickstarter itself, which means we still have some work to do in the press department!
In the presses
So, after almost a week of trying to "punch through" to the big gaming websites, famous YouTubers and major magazine and TV stations, we've finally managed to be guaranteed features on at least 3 major gaming websites, which we're super excited for!
We've also given a bunch of interviews, both big and small, of which only a few have landed on the net so far:
We'll keep you posted on more news, as it arrives.
Team size increased by 150%!
On the 1st of November we had the pleasure of welcoming two new guys on the team, an Animator (Sam) and a Rigger (Mark). In addition to this our freelance concept artist, Jesper (soon to be Art Director?), have devoted much of his time to the remainder of this Kickstarter campaign.
These guys have now joined in unison and are working on something just a bit out of the ordinary. We can't wait to reveal it but until then, here's a small (albeit ugly) work-in-progress teaser screenshot:

Community video in the making
Exciting news on the community front! In an effort to increase the coverage of Interstellar Marines across the net, our beloved community are teaming up to make a viral community video, to increase the likelihood of success. What an awesome idea – we are deeply honored by your support!
Word is that they are still looking for help, so if you are up for this you can check out their forum thread and help this initiative to fruition.
That's all folks!
As we keep saying, thanks to all of you for believing in our ambitious project – it really means the world to us!
Now, don't forget to spread the word.
FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,
Kim & Mikael
