Will You Believe?

We realize that it can be difficult to explain the concept of Interstellar Marines and AAA Indie game development to your friends and family, so we’ve put together a comprehensive new video that will get everyone up to speed in less than 5 minutes. Even your grandma will get the message.

New Video

In the latest Question of the Week heks asked how we could maximize the exposure of Interstellar Marines in the social media, and there were many suggestions to make a video which explained more. So our beloved Game Director Kim (ZPSHicks) took it upon his shoulders to make the one video to rule them all. It's called "Will You Believe?", and it tells about our vision with the game, how we develop it and how you can support us. This video was featured exclusively on GameTrailers.com during the weekend, which so far has resulted in more than 100.000 views with an average user rating of 9.4 (out of 10) as well as many new registered users. So go show it to your friends, and family and help us spread the word!

"Will You Believe?" - Feature

@kasperdi: sorry didnt see your post there...so double post from me heh. There is no release date on deadlock yet so we cant know. As zps is still working on getting more funds to boost the development team it is hard for them to say for sure.
But as they say, it is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. So hang in there! :)

1187...? A few days ago, there was a thread on the forums saying "almost 1000"... I am here to express my honest respect to you people. Every. Single. One.

Awesomesauce!!!! GameTrailers is such a good outlet for these sorts of videos and stuff. Fileplanet would be a good place to spread videos and whatnot too! xP

It is basicly those who went ahead and got themselves a preorder.

There are two ways to preorder:
1) Frontline account, which gives you the first part of the planned IM trilogy
2) Speahead, which gives you all 3 games at a very cheap price - on top of that there is a max of 75.000 spearhead accounts.

I just arrived through Kotaku, and I must say I'm super excited about this. While I think it is cool what other indie projects (minecraft, Mount&blade, both of which I've bought) are doing, I find it fascinating that an indepent group is actually making a big title, and not "just another indie title".

I can't wait for the first game to arrive, and I really hope you manage to get all three out!

Joined and bought Spearhead after being linked here through Kotaku. Have to say, I really look forward to seeing more of what IM has to offer.

That... and I really do love that warm, fuzzy feeling you get, when you realise you helped contribute some ideas and funding for the game you're playing.

Keep up the great work Zero Point, here's to hoping you'll be able to get at least one game out!

P.S: Maybe you should get Notch to tweet a link here when he gets back from his vacation, provided your servers can handle it. ;)

I've been a member for a while, but after seeing that trailer and playing running man, I knew this would be a great investment. I definitely believe!

When I saw the video I joined almost immediatelly. Ad that 25% discount valid only for last few hours was also impulse to do it and not to wait.

I was going to do it too... then my bank rammed my card up my arse. However i didn't need a price... i was sold from the start with the entire concept, right down to the community. Also sharing very passionate idea's much like my own
