Running Man is now completely unlocked to all registered users


The winner of the Xmas competition

The Xmas competition is over and the winner has been drawn. The lucky winner of a 64 GB iPad with WiFi and 3G support is obliter8. Congratulations to him, and big ups goes out to everybody who completed Training Day 1 in Running Man. The iPad has just been ordered and is on it's way to obliter8.

 

Crowd funding - preorder and invest in Interstellar Marines

To newcomers it might not be too clear how things work, so we'll try to explain a bit about preorders and upgrades.

By upgrading your account to Frontline you are not only preordering the first game in the Interstellar Marines Trilogy - you are also investing directly in the development of the games.
On top of that you will get exclusive pre-access to all upcoming releases as well as a shiny badge for your profile in the forum.

Spearhead is a limited account (only 75.000 available) which besides all the Frontliner benefits gives you all three games in the Trilogy at a very attractive price.

If you wish to support us more, you can buy Support Medals. Besides being an investment in the development of Interstellar Marines, you can "save up" for a Spearhead upgrade. 9 Support Medals can be converted to a Spearhead upgrade.

Click HERE to goto our upgrade page!
Your forum badge will also show how many Support Medals you have bought, AND your first Support Medal enables forum avatars.

The bottom-line is that your investment will result in real, tangible, forthcoming game titles.
Everything is still rolling forward - we just still need your help and appreciate all contributions - whether monetary or word of mouth.

 

Shop discount extended

We have decided to extend our 25% discount in our shop on Spearhead, Frontline and Support Medal upgrades to the end of the month.

Go to our Shop to upgrade your profile and support the development of Interstellar Marines.


From all of us to all of you

We gave Spearheads and Frontliners an exclusive present before christmas to juice up the christmas spirit.
Allthough christmas is long gone we still feel that the rest of you should experience our small playground project made in Unity 3. Enjoy!

Btw there is a bug in the christmas game. To reproduce this bug, put the game on 1280 x 720 in windowmode. Then move as close a possible to the wall/crate. Then moving your camera right and left and you will notice in the top right en left corner (depending on which way you move the camera) you a see a little through the wall/crate.

Nice update. I hope the discount will persuade more people to become spearheads.

Hope IM gets in the TOP 3 at IndieDB. I think NS2 is your/our biggest "rival", but I'm looking forward to both of these games. I've preordered NS2 2. ;-).

Btw. Clicking on the picture with medals does nothing, but the text refers to the upgrade page.

We know of the bug - the clippingplane is set wrong, but we'll probably not change it as we are working on new stuff ;-)
