Hi everyone!
Last week, we floated a question to you about the possibility of bringing Astrobase Command once again to a crowdfunding platform. Across the forums, Twitter, Facebook, and even our old Kickstarter page (yes, it's still active three years on!), you responded, and we heard you loud and clear.

As you can see, we've already gotten the ball rolling with this press release.

TL;DR: The campaign kicks off on April 25th.

Help us spread the word about the campaign far and wide. Post about it where you can, and share our posts as much as you can. Indies are easily lost in the roar of the internet. Every RT/share/forward counts. Remember to tell your friends and family, too!

If you want to help us reach our goal, join the forums if you haven't already, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay tuned!

If you're looking to help us out with getting word out you'll want to keep an eye at the Kickstarter Command Center section of these forums. ;)

In all honesty guys, I think with all the disappointment surrounding kickstarted gaems lately, i think your going to have to do an honest raw "Let's Play" series. Basically this is to show people what you have thats working (so its definitely a product and not some sort of scam) and what you still need to do (why you need the money)

We're going to feature a fair amount of in-game shots in the trailer, so hopefully that will calm those fears. Also, we've got multiple videos planned after the trailer to talk about the game more in-depth. We'll make sure your concerns are addressed in those.

Cheers Adam, but I think you're gonna have to work for it after some high profile disappointments on kickstarter recently. That Which Sleeps appears to either be dead or possibly about to be released witha much simpler AI then previously planned, and The Mandate seems to have changed its originally planned game that very few of the original backers want it anymore. Just want you guys to be prepared to fight through the scepticism.
