Hey guys - an update - I did a pod cast with Space Game Junkie - Void Destroyer - The Dark Souls of Space Games?

 

If you are interested in the indie development process, indie life, the thoughts of someone crazy enough to try this and the game itself - it is a neat listen. A conversation is a lot less dry then text on the screen.

I don't think he said how much over the targets the stretch goals are although he did say that they would be worked on after the the main game is released.

Yeah I'm planning on holding a discussion with the backers on stretch goals soon - hopefully today's update.

 

 

The idea is to get some kind of a consensus on the most exciting stretch goals and balance that with the most realistic and then come up with an order.

 

 

 

Either way I'll be updating the project, the funding determines what I add - in terms of - do I have the art to add it. Privateer mode would need a lot of art - bases, stations, new ships (factions, pirates, civilians) etc.

We are down to less than 48 - so you guys won't be spammed by me any more and I'll have to switch to the liquid form of sleep (caffeine).

 

 

 

I've created a Kickstarter Recap update here:

 

 

You guys have been awesome - special thanks to Pinback and DarkOne for all of their help.
