With 4 days to go, Star Patrol: Carrier Commander by Christopher Ferguson is 2,361% funded on Kickstarter.
Before I mention anything else let me state that this is a THREE DOLLAR GAME, POSTAGE PAID, WORLDWIDE. You heard me right, THREE DOLLARS! Drop whatever you’re doing, and pledge now! You can’t even buy a cup of decent coffee for $3. There’s no wonder over 2,800 people have pledge already. And need I mention that this game does have stretch goals as well?
In the two-player Star Patrol: Carrier Commander, each person controls a starcraft carrier and its six squadrons of fighters and bombers. Players take turns launching their squadrons, dogfighting in space, launching torpedoes at the enemy carrier, and escaping back to their own mothership. There, they reload, refuel, and line up on the flight deck to launch on another mission.
Star Patrol: Carrier Commander is for 1-2 players, plays in 10-30 minutes and is suggested for ages 4+.
I cannot do the project justice here, so watch the playthrough video below, and check out all of the project updates to see just what Christopher is doing, as well as why he’s doing it. It is extremely interesting to see how this is working out, not only on the gameplay side of things, but also the business side of things.
At $3 I have backed a few copies in order to have a spare.
The campaign closes on Monday, September 28, 2015 at 11:00 pm (EDT).
Expected delivery is October 2015.
