Otra actualización de Dark Space Corp están que no paran, el Kickstarter de Beyond the Gates of Antares ha recaudado ya 27.312 £, casi una decima parte de la recaudación inicial necesaria en menos de 24 horas.

En esta actualización Rick Priestley con su especial sentido del humor, felicita por el año nuevo y da las gracias por el apoyo tan grande que ha recibido el proyecto en tan poco tiempo. Dice que puede que la primera meta es alta pero es necesario pero recuerda que si este proyecto recibe el empujón necesario podrán ser mucha más las cosas que consigan los mecenas. Una entrada amena y que merece la pena leerse. Seguramente no pase mucho hasta que tengamos otra actualización.

Además hemos creado el club de Somos Fans de Rorkror!!! en Facebook apuntaos os esperamos.

Recordad mientras dure el Kickstarter podréis participar de forma gratuita en el desarrollo y diseño del juego desde los foros de Dark Space Corp, una vez que finalice el Kickstarter solo podrán acceder a los mismos los que hayan participado en el Kickstarter.

What a fantastic response we've had from our early-bird backers!

When we set up our Kickstarter we realised we were asking a lot from gamers, especially because we were starting a brand new project from scratch, and because it's a new project we didn't have much to offer you all except for dreams and enthusiasm. This is - of course - what Kickstarter was created for - but we know that many other successful miniatures Kickstarters have begun with existing ranges and games behind them. 

So, yes, we are asking you guys to take a leap of faith on the strength of the team we have lined up, and naturally some folks said it couldn't be done. Well - I guess now at least we know it can be done! 

So thank you everyone who has pledged their support and enthusiasm – thank you very much! Both Rik (that’s the other one), John and I have been overwhelmed by your response; we never imagined our project would get off to such a great start!
And yes it is a start – there’s still loads to do and we need you help to do it too. Beyond the Gates of Antares is something I've been wanting to do for longer than I care to admit - and it's only now with the advent of globally accessible information that it's become possible. What I'm aiming to create is a living universe that is not only inhabited by the players but where the players take part in the development of the back-story is a way that has never been realised before. Here then is the ambition - to build a universe that is infinitely and indefinitely expandable - a universe ripe for adventure and battle - and ultimately a universe that will encompass all that is best in science-fiction gaming.

Here’s to 2013 and Beyond the Gates of Antares! Happy New Year everyone.

Help us spread the word
We need to make sure everybody knows about us, so we've made some facilitatory artwork to help spread the word. GoA is all about involving you guys right at the start and our first job is to get us funded! 

So get creative on it, anything you can think of to spread the word from wandering around your home town with a robot WarDrone suit on (ok, so we haven’t actually made any but a simple cardboard box with the words “I’m a WarDrone – Pledge NOW or my IMTel nano-drones will infect you” will probably work!) to downloading this PDF (, emailing it to your friends and relatives, printing it out and handing it out to literally everyone you come across, you can even get some blu-tack and stick it on the foreheads of shop owners if you like! (apologies if you are actually a shop owner… stick it to a customer’s forehead perhaps? )
Anyway, the point is: If you tell as many people as possible there’s a much better chance of us first: hitting first our funding target, and second: hitting some of our stretch goals and ultimately giving you even more cool stuff to play with.
Here’s the arty stuff - we've got banners, forum avatars and even facebook photos!
