So things aren't looking too hot on KS right now.

There might be a Christmas miracle in April occur, but I'm not betting on it.

It's not all bad news however, the game's tracking quite well on Steam Greenlight.
Stats list it as being 52% of the way to the top 100.

There seem to be a lot of positive comments about TU2 on Steam GreenLight, which is good. What's the relevance of the top 100? Do you have to get into the top 100 to get GreenLit?
Lets hope the KickStarter kicks off! You had a good number of pledges on the second day and then it dropped off :(
I've told a number of people about it and they all seemed interested so hopefully they'll donate as well.

Yep - pretty disappointing.

The days of 'easy money' are gone - the market's saturated, there's a dozen new games coming out on Steam every day - and almost as many on Kickstarter.
On the other hand, I recognise that the lack of MP and the PC only nature of the game didn't help.

Steam Greenlight and Early Access is the logical plan B, but I do find it frustrating at how many 'horror' games involving low level lighting and Unity store assets just seem to sail through.
Or the ubiquitous survival games which depend on the author having discovered how to sprinkle tree models across a terrain and set a water level. :roll:

Such a shame about the outcome of the Kickstarter.
Your game really does deserve better.
Every comment I read from people on Steam was positive - people who like the game really do like it a lot.
Are there really that few people who think a Tron style tank game is just totally cool? Maybe it's just us oldies who saw the original Tron film in the cinema and played those "retro" games when they were the latest thing.

Anywhere, how's the Steam Greenlight thing going? We don't see the stats, so can't really "follow" it like you can with KickStarter.

Add a donate button and maybe a counter to keep track, personal or otherwise.

Currently 441 votes, and it's getting about a vote per day.
From what I've read, 500 is the threshold to get greenlit, but that's not certain.

Ph
There is a donate button on the front of the website.
I put it there as I paid for an update to the NB language and other NB users said they'd help chip in as well.
I'll have a look at what custom var options paypal offers.

Also looking at setting up items to purchase. Initially;
Tshirts

Poster

Any interest?

3d prints would also be on the menu - image to come - needs a bit more work.

LOVE the second T-shirt! The first one, I'm not sure... I feel like it needs a border or something, IMO. And yes, the poster is great as well. :D
