40K on Kickstarter, Gameplay Video
October 5, 2013 - Tynan

We've doubled our Kickstarter goal in about three days! Thank you everyone for all the support!

The famous YouTuber Quill18 has made an excellent video showing off the first 15 minutes of the game. If you want to see some footage of the game in action, you should totally check it out here. Look! It's a real game, not Kickstarter vaporware!

Last night I put some incendiary weapons in the game. So now raiders will sometimes spawn with molotov cocktails or incendiary shot launchers. And, of course, you can take these weapons and use them yourselves. Fights are much more interesting when stuff is on fire. Especially when it's people. In fact, it was amusing yesterday when I was testing this - my colonist was firing an incendiary launcher at some raiders. But a squirrel wandered between them and got shot, bursting into flames, running around, and spreading fire across the field.

Thanks again for the support everyone! As always, I'm around to answer questions. And the community at the Ludeon Forums[ludeon.com] is growing fast if you want to talk more about the game. An old friend of mine just put up a fun gameplay story[ludeon.com] of his last play.

@RunningWolf If anything he is doing right by the people on steam and waiting to release it until there is a little more content. It is already quite fun and I have played hours upon hours over the past few days. Steam is one of those platforms where especially green lit stuff get ragged on hard. He is just trying to not have a huge mess like space engineers does with pushing out updates. For a one man coding group he is doing pretty well better than most.

Right now, the basic features are up and running, the game just lacks content and some more deeper game mechanics...but honestly, I have seen fully released games, that made a less polished impression to me...

WHEN WILL IT BE RELEASED TO STEAM

Seems like the whole steam portion of this game has been forgotten. I'm sure the developer realizes that just releasing -something- on steam will give a nice, healthy increase in profits and funding? Nudge?

It's been 2014 for over a month, I would have figured at least put the same product you have up on kickstarter on steam also in it's alpha/beta stage... When might we see this available on steam for purchase?... I was really hoping to see this game on steam before March, and yes I know there is still 20 odd days 'til its March but really I reiterate... Same product on kickstarter to steam...
