Sorry to have been quiet for so long. We are definitely not gone. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. For the past 4 months, we have been hard at work making the game even more awesome. We received a lot of positive input at GDC and have been incorporating much of what we learned into Galaxy for Hire. We’ve been revisiting all aspects of the game. Everything from art style tweaks to fundamental design changes that affect core gameplay, as long as it gets us closer to our goal of making a really fun game.
To showcase all these changes and features, we are preparing to launch a new website specifically for Galaxy for Hire. This will give us a much more organized place to put information about the game, and is where we will be releasing details about all future design changes, new characters, and contracts.
We are also preparing to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund the rest of development. If you don’t know what Kickstarter is, it’s a way for people with an idea for a project to get support directly from the community that wants it. Check out kickstarter.com for more information and take some time to check out some of the great projects that are there. We looked at all our options for funding and feel this is our best option to remain in total control of our game and still finish it in a reasonable amount of time. Stay tuned, for more information about this in the next month or so.
