The Mandate - Update #6, Court Martials & Rewards

by Couchpotato, 2013-10-16 01:39:03

A new Kickstarter update for The Mandate has been posted were we get a look how court martials work, and gives more infomation on tier rewards.

Court martial is in session! Click HERE to check out the interactive Character Prologue Creator, through the Unity web pug-in. Bring a pack of smokes, they're good prison currency!

Remember to check the roadmap, as this is just the tip of the iceberg - for example we will replace the 2D concepts with fully fledged 3D character customization in a future update. 

A note on reward tiers, $150 and up grant extra copies. Extra copies receive all the benefits of the Cossack Captain ($75 tier) including: season pass, alpha, beta, etc. This is our way of compensating for lack of physical rewards (these will be added after the Kickstarter campaign, and you only pay production cost + shipping). If you have two friends and you both pitch in for the $150 War Commissioner tier, you each pay $50 and get to design an officer + you get the Cossack Captain $75 benefits. Likewise, for the General of Fortification tier at $1000, you will receive a total of 12 copies and get to design multiple ships, captains, officers etc, at a price of $83 per copy. Isn’t this “gaming the system”? Yes! But this is by design, we planned for this in advance! Consider coupling up on a higher tier for better value rewards. 

The reward sub-forums have launched on the forums. They will remain open to all forum users, but we will lock these down after 2nd December when we receive final lists from Kickstarter containing information on who backed and at which pledge tier.

In other news we have broken into the top 100 on Steam Greenlight, and are within the top 7% of all projects on Steam. We still need your votes, though, so please vote for us!

So what is next? Well, we don’t want to give away too much, but let’s just say that we are focusing on something that starts with “gameplay”, and ends with “videos”. Expect a host of other exciting tools and interactive demos over the coming weeks, too.
