We’ve just set off on the last two days of our Astrobase Command Kickstarter campaign. While things are going swimmingly on Steam Greenlight (we’re currently at #11), we are falling far short of our crowd funding goal.
This is not to say that it is impossible to reach the $113,000 or so that remain. Other campaigns have clawed back from further in the final hours. Our main challenge for this to happen, though, is to break above the internet’s background noise. There is just so much going on in these last days before Christmas that few have the opportunity to notice our project. The profound success we are having on Greenlight tells us that our concept resonates deeply with players. People are looking for a meaningful and deeply immersing storyline, one that highlights the importance of characters over the fantastic nature of advanced science fiction technologies.
This is where you come in. Your help in shouting out, spreading the word far and wide across the reaches of the interwebs, will give us a fighting chance to push this across the finish line.
We’d be grateful for any help you can lend.
The Kickstarter funds will allow us to accelerate the game’s delivery and most importantly hire a talented artist to replace all the placeholder art we are using with something gorgeous.
A little information about our game
Astrobase Command is a sandbox base-building RPG in a low-tech science fiction universe. Inspired by the science fiction movies and television shows of the ’70s and ’80s, its focus is on the bonds the player will develop with the characters rather than the advanced technology they use.
Build 3D starbases, explore exotic new worlds, and wage battles in space or on planetary surfaces. Everything is tied together by an advanced AI Storyteller that is like having a living, breathing Dungeon Master crafting a unique game experience for the player every time the game is played, offering endless replayability.
Astrobase Command is available on Kickstarter at a discounted price of $15 until the campaign ends on December 20th at 10AM EST.
