$2.5 million stretch goal reached! That means bombers (the Anvil Gladiator) will be a flyable ship in the game at launch. Only 500k to go until it hits the all important 3 million mark, which gets us the 40 system persistent universe. Well on pace to achieve that within the next 18 days, looking good so far.

funding has slowed way down. Hopefully there will be a big push near the end on the kickstarter. That being said I look forward to being a miner, a smuggler and with a dash of piracy in the persistent uni biggrin.gif

It has slowed down, which is natural since we're in the middle of the pledging period, but it is still on pace to do well over 3 million. Plus, as you say there will most likely be a surge as the end date nears.

Only just saw this, will pledge soon. Looks excellent! A working dynamic and realistic cockpit. Nice. Wonder what the flying and dogfighting will be like.

Part of the whole philosophy we’re building here is that we’re building a high-end PC game. We want to get back to the roots of Wing Commander. There was a lot of Sound Blaster cards sold because of Wing Commander II, and people wanted CD-ROMs to play Wing Commander III, or upgraded to a 386 or 486. We want to embrace a little bit of that.

That's what I'm talking about!!! I loved those days, even though it was expensive!!

I'm getting more excited with every bit of news! biggrin.gif

EDIT: It's quite an informative interview. Worth the read.

Overall pledges reach 3 million, and the Kickstarter has surpassed 1 million! That means with 10 days to spare that the 40 system persistent universe is officially a go, and a corvette capital ship will be a playable ship in the game. Now it's a race to 4 million. Getting there means we'll get mod tools when the game is released as well as more initial star systems in the persistent universe and more missions in the singleplayer campaign.

This stuff has me super pumped...

I was just thinking though, I hope trading/cargo hauling is good way to make money fast. Else, who will want to pilot a big rectangle around with no guns. There will be no fat cattle to around to 'milk' devil-smiley-019.gif
