    The Starfighter Inc. team is thrilled that we not only reached our Kickstarter goal, but exceeded it and opened up two stretch goals. We want to express our gratitude to our many backers, both those from our former campaign and new ones, as well as the sites and news organizations that covered us and interviewed our team members. Kickstarter campaigns are tough, a roller-coaster ride involving constant effort, hope and anxiety in equal measure. So we're really happy to announce our success. We have lots of great updates to come, and if you sign up for our newsletter, you'll be the first to know.

    Wait, 2 tiers?

    It's supposed to be 3, since we funded $170,104. That's supposed to come out to:

    0.Base Game (150k)
    1.Two skins for the pilot(155k)
    2. two extra skins for each ship in the game.(160k)
    3. Weapon decided by the backers. (170k)

    Is there something we are missing?

    I don't think so, it was likely just a mistake. There were clearly three stretch goals unlocked - no worries.

    Any estimate on call sign registration for those who backed at that level? Thanks!

    You are correct, Hisnitch. Rusel made a mistake. While we're focused on ongoing game development, we are also devoting a lot of effort to updating the Impeller Studios website (which will soon include a storefront), and a Starfighter Inc website which will try to "remain in character" as a window into the game universe. In the meantime, we'll continue to post here, on social media, and of course through Kickstarter.

    Hello, Hollywood! Great question, and I wish I had a solid answer for you right now. Our preference is to handle this through the Starfighter Inc website, but maybe it would be better to do it through a backer poll via Kickstarter? I'll bring this up at the next leads meeting and get back to you.
