Why Join the Spearhead Unit

published Friday, 15 May 2009, 10:56 by DaBoss

By joining the spearheads you're joining an exclusive club. Only 75.000 will ever join the Spearhead Unit and get the props and perks that follows.

Spearheads get a free digital copy for PC of all the titles in the INTERSTELLAR MARINES trilogy: First Contact, When Worlds Collide, and Satellite of Saturn, if and when they come out.Keeping it tight.

Spearheads are easily identified. When they post comments they stand out with customizable avatars, a Spearhead frame around their avatar, and the Spearhead font color. They also carry a special Spearhead Unit patch on the shoulder, both on-site and in-game.

Spearheads have special access. They get pre-access to all playable releases and selected content on InterstellarMarines.com. They get access to high quality media files. Spearheads are also the first to receive invitations to join beta programs.

Basically, the sooner you support the more we will give back. If you join the community a day before launch, you won't get as many benefits as the ones who signed up from the start. Spearheads are the true pioneers. They will be the ones remembered for their love for INTERSTELLAR MARINES and for their believe in AAA Indie, and they will be treated accordingly.

Enlist now and proceed to join the Spearhead.

Hey, just saw your photo op trailer on Gametrailers.com so thought I would sign up to support you guys!

If it would say "Get a free digital copy of all titles in the IM: Trilogy for XBOX 360." instead of "Get a free digital copy of all titles in the IM: Trilogy for PC" I would instantly enlist for SPEARHEAD. So is there any possibility that you will make the SPEARHEAD offer for XBOX users too?

Hey Guys, I just saw "photo vid" on GT and I'm glad that I came here. Very, very promising projesct! I might concider to support You by joining the spearhead but I (and I think many others) would like to have some more info. Could you answer few questions?
- Do you have any ESTIMATE release date? I dont want to foze 36$ till 2011-2012 if You know what I mean.
- Are there gona be any PvP Multiplayer?
- Is it gona have "colonial marines" feel? Im thinking about realistic, grim science fiction, not Star Wars colorfull beams etc.
- When are You Guys planing to launch forums?
- How many content ( how many hours of gameplay?) do You plan to release in first part of the trilogy? Is it gona be some sort of campaign or separate missions?

I really keep my fingers crossed for You Guys! I hope IM will be huge success!

I'm a long time PC gamer and this is hands down the most promising idea I've come across for a great game. However its not simply the game itself that I'm interested in, this whole concept of AAA Indie is excellent and far sighted! Initially I thought it was a scam to get people like ourselves to give money but after further research I'm convinced that the people involved with Zero Point are honest, well intentioned, and committed to following through with this project. I also believe that our input (Spearheads and others who have invested in this idea) will be considered and on occasion implemented into the project. I'm hopeful for this project and look forward to a finished project, a game that we can all be proud of! Keep pushing it Zero Point and keep working hard!

Thank you Roger for making the effort of Researching us. Naively, it didn't really occur to us that it could be perceived as a scam, given what we have put out there. We are currently re-prioritising our work to document our honest intentions and humble origins (not to mention still some real "hardship")

If you can/will make your own way (sorry, we are penny-pinching) to our offices in Copenhagen and you agree that we may record and release your visit and honest respone (one way or the other!) - we would really like you to come and see for yourself

PS: don't everybody else feel obliged to post "negative" comments, in order to be invited - we will be inviting randomly selected Spearheads for a Grand Tour, hopefully at least on a monthly basis (starting with the ones who can pay for their own expenses - just (partly) joking)

Your very welcome Gert, thanks for the reply! I feel like a jerk now for mentioning that I initially worried this might be some sort of scam (it was simply ignorance on my behalf because I didn't know much about the project at that point)! Hopefully my support shows that I no longer have that worry and I'm currently going out of my way to help spread the word about IM as best I can!

In regards to CoNTRAKToR's comments, initially I was hesitant to get on board and make an actual investment despite the fact I liked the project (because like you I was worried about getting scammed or screwed). However it didn't take much research to realize that is not the case, Zero Point is a legitimate group of people who believe in this project and will see it through to the end (or die trying), lol! Plus on a more practical level this simply is not a great way to scam people out of their money, there are much easier ways to scam people and make far more money than Zero Point is!

I invested in this project with my eyes open fully understanding that it may never become a fully working game. If I'm not mistaken Zero Point is not promising the world here, they are only promising that their going to do the best they can to see this project through to the end. Even if the project fails and there is not a finished game at the end I still think my investment was a good one because I believe in the AAA indie concept and business model!

@hmd187 and re "Semper Fidelis" as a Key Phrase - I think the short answer is that it has already, by Community Consent entered the IM Phase Book - before I stick my head too far out, I know this has to be vetted by the internal ZPS Team (but that's probably the easy one, given the above), but our Legal Counsel could be the sticking point, due to Trademark issues(We have already been Councelled that the term "Marine" could be considered a Trademark of the US Marine Corp) - We have to be careful not to confuse being Indie with being Naive

@Gert,

do not worry - Semper Fidelis or Semper Fi is not a registered trademark anywhere according to the official databases. However, it has been a registered trademark in the US for clothing but that trademark is DEAD. Semper Fidelis respectively Semper Fi forms part of other trademarks, but that does not prevent us form using the term.

Consequently, let us use the term until somebody (rightfully) tells us not to.

@Ghost1800: Really? An army unit adopted it first? That's interesting. I know for fact that if I had said it around marines when I was in the US Army, I would have gotten dirty looks. As far as I know, it is very much a marine only thing today.

If you are unable to use Semper Fi/delis for any reason, the US military uses a variety of latin phrases, down to individual units. Here's some examples of latin phrases that have been personally on my uniform: Primus Inter Pares (first among equals), Pro Patria Vigilans (Watchful for the nation), Semper Paratus (Always Prepared), and Audacia (by daring deeds). Basically, my point is anything in latin that hints that you are a badass killing machine would theoretically be authentic to being a slogan for a military unit that is US based / influenced.

That being said, all branches of the US military greatly value tradition, and you can easily expect a marine to be saying Semper Fi 100s of years from now, so it works perfectly.

Sorry for the wall of text,
TL;DR: SEMPER FI

I just read the bit about an extra donation function - I don't think it should be reserved just for Spearhead, though. If this game-trilogy is successful it will be the first true Indie project of its kind.

ALL paid subsribers should be entitled to donate more if they wish. Those who have enlisted under a paid account have still given money to it, so they should have the same privileges as Spearhead users, with certain donations giving them the ability to upgrade their current account to a higher type.

The studio should also fully realise the "Discussions" section of Facebook. Right now you guys look like you have nothing in the way of forums, so an area dedicated to exchanging ideas to improve the game or talking to you better would be beneficial to IM's development process.

Heya ZPS-guys.
I just registered an "ISC Martian Service" account, trying out another type - just to upgrade to SH later on. I can see it’s still the original price to "upgrade" to SH even though I already paid for the "ISC Martian Service". Is this "working as intended" or should it have been the difference in price to upgrade? I have no problem paying the original amount - it just came as a surprise to me that it wasn't the difference I had to pay to upgrade.

@ ImBulldog aka Bulldog aka ? :)

Yes, the Upgrade page is "working as intended", we want the Spearhead unit and the Spearhead offer to be very special, but we also want to have separate smaller upgrades for the ones that just wants to support a bit.

That said, this IS AAA Indie, which means we can and will re-engineer the system as we see fit to e.g. take all types of "support" and give back special community achievements or something else. The last thing we want is to piss our community off.

I can't give you any time specifics but we are building an advanced community achievement system which will tie directly into the game. (Arrrhhh, that was to specific) :)

A total of the people who bought account upgrades would be nice, a monthly Key Perfomance Indicator of the community growth-

Back to the discussion regarding latin quotes.
I was in the Dragoon Regiment in Jutland (DK) 5'th Recon Battalion, 4'th Scout Squadron.
The regimental motto was "Fortes Fortuna Juvat" Fortune Favours the Bold, which is quite similar to the SAS, Who Dares Wins.

I don't know it, but it would seem weird if you are able to own rights to sayings and mottos of 2.000 year old organisations and culture.
Would be ridicolous though if the Italian army sued the US, for using their cultural heritage in their army mottos.

@hmd187 -sorry for missing your last post (I've got another day-job, but that's no excuse)

I mentioned in my answer to ImBulldog a couple of days ago that we are working on a Support-Scheme, but I'd rather not go into too many details, as they are still being tested (technically and legally) - but the team has committed to launching it this month - along with the Forum(s) and The Vault - not to mention quite a few web-site bug-fixes.

Regarding the number of Spearheads - we had agreed internally not to make it pulic until we had more and wanted to use it for publicity purposes - but the invoice number is not far out!
- so Spearheads know roughly where we are up to - with about 10 times that amount of registered Marines (the grey ones).

We are building a long-term relationship/community - one "brick" at-a-time for now, but obviously hoping it will pick up when the Vault comes out, not to mention actual (limited) playable environments in August/September - depending on how our Engine-saga progresses.

I have been looking into this game... God i dont know for how long... But its been in my sights for a year atleast. Maybe it was the whole "Marines' being in the title... Semper Fi to the Danes the have a real promising game on the way. Just droped my bills for spear head i hope i made the cut.. Honestly i cant believe there isnt more hype about this one. Seems like allot of people are going to be kicking themselves in the @$$ for not supporting yall like they should... Heres to The Concept of one of the most Promising games todate.. And heres to hoping i dont have to wait too long to waste away a portion of my adult life on this game!!!

After watching all your videos and looking at your images on this site I without hesitation immediately signed up for Spearhead. This really looks like its going to be my dream game. I want to help as much as I can to see this game made. Just judging by the "Running Man" that I have just finished completing I know this game is going to be near perfect. Your training missions alone are better than a lot of games I have played. My jaw also literally dropped when I saw what you guys were doing with that real time voice chat in-game I will be having so much fun with just that alone.

Cant wait for this game to be released when it is done. :)

After playing some more of Bullseye i felt as well that i have to do this and support you guys.
It is always good to see small groups trying to do something on a small budget and with communitie support and succeed. There is no better feeling.
And because of that i am here to support you with signing uo for Spearhead as well.
Keep up the good work and hopefully we can see the next part you have in store for us.

With a great design/game plan and the skills to back it up, zero point is going to break into the market with this game... training camps for a fps gives one a feel like the game is real, and isn't just a "pick it up and start firing" type of game

Kudos to the team on their future success and I am honored to support in any way I can...

Greetings to all from Puerto Rico. I stand (or rather sit) here as a Speahead brother today to thank the developers for having the vision and boldness in creating a game as deep and immersive as Interstellar Marines. It is still in it's beta phase and already it has the ability to suck you in, make you feel part of an evolving world, and all this while standing ground against the corrupt gaming industry and staying true to it's indie roots (I am a musician who is on the verge of releasing a CD, and though I have been offered label contracts, I deny selling my soul over to some corporate greed-bags). I can only see good things happening for this game (which will soon not be a simple "game" anymore, but a part of an alter ego). The only other "game" that has sucked me in this much has been EVE, and that was 5 years ago (I still play it).
I encourage people to support IM to it's fullest since the devs do listen to it's followers, and to send a message that you needn't be afraid to "go gentle into that good night" and come out victorious against the brazen death.

To AAA I say, "I still believe!"

Cheers,

Volteau

I went Spearhead the minute I got my paycheck! And man, its like investing in a business that will grow to be a corporation. Sure it may be small and the benefits are not really crystal clear, but think about it! In a few months (or years) when interstellar marines it out, people are going to be envious about your spearhead stuff, like recon in halo 3! And you'll juts sit there and think, "This was so worth the 40 bucks!" Because deep down you know that everyone who scorns you or calls you a nerd or fan-boy really just hates the fact that they weren't smart and didn't buy the spearhead, and they are just jealous!

But I promise as soon as there is a 360 preorder I will jump right on board.
