Things are moving along

Recommended Posts

Things are moving along pretty nicely lately, though everything is still taking longer than we would like. Kris is working really hard on making sure one of the cornerstones of Ground Branch, the character and weapon customization, has a rock solid foundation to build on. This has proven more challenging than originally anticipated, but we think its finally working to our standards. It isn't currently pretty.... but she's got it where it counts!  ;)

 

 

 

As I mentioned before, we will be releasing what we are calling the Ground Branch Tech Preview soon. This will be a small slice of Ground Branch to give people a general idea of where we are going with the project, though there is no gameplay specifically. The purpose is to give people a small taste of what to expect from the project as well as give us a platform to gather valuable feedback on crashes, system specs, performance and general stability of the project. The Tech Preview will not cost anything and we encourage people to pass it around, share, do videos, post screenshot and whatever else they want to to help promote the project.

 

The next step after that is to move to Early Access on Steam. We want to make sure that the game is as rock solid and polished as can be at that time. To do so, we have decided to make some things available for purchase to help fund our drive to Early Access and beyond.

We really do hope to have all this available very soon and will most certainly make announcements when it is. We are working very hard to make this happen. Not much longer now......

(hearing all the Kickastarter horror stories, I hope you have partnered with someone to care care of distributing physical goods, you'll waste a lot of resources shipping those t-shirts)

My 15 year old daughter! She needs a job :)

 

We are sourcing the shirts locally so all I need to do is pick them up!

Yeah point.

 

I'll be getting I imagine GB operator edition, however the cost of sending a T-Shirt to the UK maybe a ###### your end so I'm happy negating that part.

so will there be a bundle without the shirt? I'm not sure my monthly university stipend can take that hit

 

No. Just the shirt or the bundle. I may add a pre-order for the Early Access, but that seems a bit silly. :)

What if I want two shirts? Can I not order the bundle as well as a t-shirt separately?

Sure can. I was just saying that we are only offering 2 items in the store.. the shirt and the bundle. You can order whatever and as many as you want!

 

It's also setup so the prices are a minimum. Just in case you feel you want to offer more money to the cause over what we are charging. We get a fair number of requests for donations, but I want to give people something in return, so this is a way for those that wish to do so to give more than what we are asking.

Any online "one stop shop" style store like that charges a ton per item to the retailer. Typical costs for a shirt are about $16-22. Doesn't leave much to go to us when selling a shirt for a typical price of $20-24.

 

Don't worry, we have it covered so we get maximum revenue towards development. ;)
