After much anticipation (ours as well as hopefully yours!) our kickstarter has been approved and is now officially live!

A lot of people have been asking about what sort of perks we're going to be offering this time around and I've been hinting at "sorta Synthetic-centric to an extent, but with some totally sweet universal stuff thrown in there as well".

We've done our best to add things that we think people will want, such as a second-change at owning a Vindicator or Verrator, plus upgraded chassis (bodies) for Synthetic players including three different factions of giant mecha to transfer your consciousness into.

Our new Kickstarter comes included with two new videos (with one more on the way) totaling over 20 minutes. The goal was to give the player an idea of what they can expect with regards to how expansive the system of construction we use is, and taking into consideration the placeholder UI, I think it does just that. If you can stomach listening to my ridiculous voice for 20 minutes, I think you'll walk away with hope for the future of MMOs as they do for me :)

We've totally lifted our gag-order and will actually be encouraging our testers to post screenshots of their creations here. Please keep in mind that our catalog of parts and objects grows by an average of one new addition every two days while we hash our the process of re-integrating features of our early prototype (such as improved character creation) into this language.

Just a question. What is the pay model going to be for the game? Will there be a cash shop or you going for just subs?

Not exactly; as described in the last mmorpg.com interview:

The game will have a box fee and a premium subscription model. This model was not picked at random either. Ethan conducted a poll on their website and over 80% of the respondents wanted a retail box sale and subscription over the game being micro transaction based. The good news for current backers is that if they have already contributed to the crowd funding campaigns and their contributions equal more than the box fee they will not be required to pay the box fee. They will receive a retail copy free in thanks for their support when Ethan needed it the most. The subscription will also be optional. So the game is what most consider buy to play. The subscription will allow you to unlock the “blocks.” The blocks are ferrocrete that allow you to build free form buildings across the landscape.
