If you have not heard from me yet - Derelict Void, a game we've been making over the past year (read the full story here), is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter. I thought I'd elaborate a bit the different kinds of pledges and what they offer because I realized I never explained that before:
Shuttle ($33 or more)
In addition to getting a copy of the game and getting a backer skin for your starting hull, your name will appear in the credits because you will also get to be a playtester (if the first thing you do after starting a game is to try and break it, this one is for you!). Personally, I would love to have more people help us fine-tune the game to perfection. There will be things that players can see that are difficult for the devs to see (since some of us have been looking at the same stuff for over a year now).
Cassini-Huygens ($80 or more)
Okay. This one is important. (I am biased.) Starting THIS pledge tier, in addition to getting a copy of the game, an upgraded backer skin for your starting hull, playtester access to builds and Discord, and your name appearing in the credits, you get a digital ART BOOK! You wouldn't want to miss all of Irene's concept art and illustrations, like this:
You can also suggest a name for a hull (spaceship) name pool. Derelict Void is a game about travelling to different places and scavenging resources. Some of those locations will be spaceships. You may run into the hull you named!
Voyager ($200 or more)
Will your story be canon? If you are a sci-fi writer, this one is for you. In addition to the rewards from all the previous tiers, you can write a story (in a text-based adventure-like format, where events, decisions and outcomes are conveyed in the form of reports) that will be featured in a community-content mod that is enabled by default. "But how would my story get incorporated into the game?" you might think. We've got you covered - you can build your custom story using the Derelict Void Content Editor. Another perk: You can also suggest a name for the character name pool. Someone who you named might show up in your ship!
Mir ($400 or more)
Buildings play a critical role in Derelict Void (a resource management game): resources are produced / consumed / stored by different buildings. This backer tier allows you to work with the art team to design a building! This is an example of a building that you will see in the game. (Thank goodness we have a warehouse to store all the goods.)
ISS ($650 or more)
And this one is BIGGER - in addition to designing a building, you get to design a hull (like, the spaceship itself!). I mean this when I'm talking about hulls:
How cool is that!?
Lastly I will mention that not all backer tiers are pricey! There are many more pledge tiers starting from $15 and above which gives you a copy of the game and a "backer skin" for the initial hull you'll find yourself in. Have a look at the entire list below!
