Hi sprog, no kickstarter for me. IndieGoGo.

Also yeh, quality art work isn't cheap. And it shouldn't be...it takes serious talent! Thanks for the feedback.

Oh, I thought you'd do alpha funding on Desura.

I can't launch to Desura because I have some copy righted place holders. Unless I stripped out most of the ship art and launched it. Not sure how much sales I'd get on Desura then which would allow me to buy art.

You see, people have this habit of reviewing alphas as final games, not necessarily on Desura but throughout the net. I read a 'impressions' of a pre-alpha for cdf ghost ship in January...pre alpha! The guy complained the monsters didn't move properly, that the sounds weren't good. I mean jeez, at that stage of the project its all place holders. And this was a guy who claims he is a professional writer for xxyyzz...

It was an article on an indie gamer website on the game cdf ghostship.

Here's a new silly video of VOD... http://www.indiedb.com/games/void-of-darkness/videos/vod-teaser

I see, that's too bad. Do you still plan to get on Desura later then, after you're funded on IndieGogo?

It's true though, no matter how big the letters are you write "ALPHA" with, there're always people complaining.

If the IndieGoGo fails, I will release triangles and squares on Desura LOL and hope to fund the art with it. I really just need creative content badly, art and sounds.
Thanks for your support null.

Hey everyone, a month ago I announced our campaign on IndieGoGo for the 26th. Well we commence in 3 days on Wednesday 26th.... this week.

I know that Starsector has forgone a crowdfund. There is one big difference between me and Starsector. I am not a team, I have to hire additional help for the project to complete the creative content. This is the only way I will be able to complete VoD in any reasonable amount of time the way it was meant to be.

I am asking for your support in any way you can, whether to help spread word about the campaign across space game sites in a cordial discussion kind of way, such as hey there's a new game being made check it out...that kind of thing. And if you can support the campaign please do.

The rewards range from alpha/beta access direct involvement with development to boxed copies, printed manuals and starmaps of the games universe. Practical things which will help you play the game. There are no, design your own race, species, or other potentially game changing rewards.

Thanks.

Hey guys posted a demonstration of how you might explore in VoD. The game and content is far from final, this is just a demonstration of using your starmap, jump drive, ftl drive and tactical and assistance from your crew to explore.
