There off to a good start with $55 grand already but $300K a big hill to climb, hope they remember to do plenty of updates over the next month.

300k is not all that much of a hurdle if one takes into account the number of times that the i-novae engine has been "shown" around. Gameplay to be seen, but graphics are quite publicized. 

 

Tbqh, and not bein familiar with "larger" recent KS project fate, I'd have set my goal more on the 500k to 700k area. But it obviously depends on how much money  they need to deliver a game. 

 

If they make if over 100k in the first 3 days (I wouldn't be surprised they took about 2) they should have no issues in geting funded.

To get a real feel for what Battlescape will be you have to watch real in-game footage from the current prototype:

Impressive, but they are playing in the same niche as the super heavy weight called Elite Dangerous. Let's see what happens in the 29 next days

Both Decent Underground and EverSpace asked for similar amount and just made and then there was Starfighter Inc which looked like it going to do it but failed right at the end.But they are doing well as they are over the $90K mark now and I would not be too surprised to see them at the half way point or over by the end of the first week although I expect to see the normal down turn in the middle of the Kickstarter then a resurgence at the end.

Some how I don't think this will appeal to E:D player as theirs no expansive universe or trading in it.

/jest more on

Hey, I've backed ED! And was a 1st day backer of Infinity 😛

 

Space is big - enough room for more than one game. Or 2 .. or a lot more 🙂

/off

 

 

Yeah, they probably did good in avoiding being overly ambitious, provided they asked enough. Even the mighty ED was a bit touch and go. But they asked for a rather substantial amount of money (at the time it was the biggest game project ever funded - not the most funded, but from the successfully funded, the one which had the highest pledge goal).

Looks like it has slowed down a bit but as long as they keep pumping out the updates and answering comments, then they have a very good chance of making it.

 

Hope they continue the funding after the Kickstarter as I would like to back it.

Why isn't this getting more crowdfunding money than everything else combined? Infinity, at the beginning of its crowdfunding campaign, has more impressive content than Elite:Dangerous after release. What they're showing us here Chris Roberts described as a "pipe dream" for Star Citizen not so long ago, but this is real. Today.

It's lot tougher to get funding on Kickstarter now, but they are doing pretty well so far.

Definitely a very interesting game. I've been following the Infinity Quest for Earth project from the beginning and have been a long time fan but I'm sorry to say that if they don't promise to add an entire galaxy instead of just a single solar system I'm going to pass on this one. I don't blame them for going smaller though. 

I really like Battlescape, especially the seamless planets and 3d cockpits, but just can't live with a single solar system in a space game now that I've played Space Engine (sadly not a game), Pioneer, Elite Dangerous and Shores of Hazeron (graphics alone aren't everything, it's all about scale and freedom i.m.o.!).

 

But interesting nonetheless and maybe, if I do get bored playing ED, I'll give it a shot. I WILL become a backer if a seamless galaxy is promised.

In less it changed I think they have always said that Battlescape is a separate game from Infinity although it may become a stepping stone on the road to Infinity.

The only reason I haven't backed this is because of it not being a open universe type game with SP elements. I tend to not play MP only type games. But one thing that looks promising is the mod tools if they reach $800k, just not sure what exactly we could do with them and if someone could actually mod a SP element to the game? The I-Novae engine is a fine piece of work and would love to fly through it for hours and days on end, just don't want to do it in a offline test mode feature that battlescape has. They need just a little under $80k to meet funding which I think they could make it.

Well they only have $10k left to get over the 2.5 days so I think they will make it.

Currently at $303,814. I'm happy that they made their goal. Not so happy that it's a spacey run-n-gun shootem-up. Seems to be a waste of the wonderful level of detail, seemless transitions and magnificient landscapes. Maybe the later games will have more depth? Maybe even one that is single player?

Congratulation to them.

 

Will they be continuing to fund the game post Kickstarter, ie PayPal?.

Yes, we will continue crowd funding on our website, and PayPal will be accepted.
