Projects on Kickstarter lately seem to have hit somewhat of a wall when it comes to finding people willing to pony up for new ideas, but the guys over at Born Ready are breaking that trend as they announced that their new space combat/robot action game Strike Suit Zero which will be hitting PC’s and consoles next year, has hit its initial goal of $100,000 dollars in just 15 days, which is 14 days faster than they originally hoped for.
With so much time remaining before the funding windows closes, Born Ready have said that if they continue to receive additional funding, the developers will port the game over to both Mac and Linux, but only if funding can hit $180,000.
Born Ready had already stated that if funding were to hit $130,000 they would release mod tools that would allow players to create their own missions as well as campaigns, and then share them with other fans. Born Ready CEO, James Brooksby said: “We are humbled by the support and are happy that so many people are as excited about the game as we are. Perhaps as remarkable as reaching our goal in just 15 days is that we have close to 3,000 backers to date, which is very encouraging. We can’t wait for our fans to get their hands on the finished game, and the team is as enthusiastic as ever to use this support to make Strike Suit Zero the best game possible”.
I must admit that Strike Suit Zero looks and sounds like it could turn out to be one of the best games in this genre. If Strike Suit Zero sounds like your kind of game, and if you would like to help Born Ready hit their goals, you can find more information about the project and the game at their Kickstarter page.
