coombsanity: Hey folks, Jordan here - one of the creators of Star Command!

Couple quick things about the game.

First - Yes, we will 100% be on GOG. We have been in touch with them since Star Command Galaxies development began. They have been very supportive and we will be on here.

Second - All of our kickstarters, 1st and 2nd did receive the game. As for the funds, 100% went to the development of Star Command Galaxies. But to be frank, 150k is about 15% of the total cost of the game so a lot of other funding has come in, both from the success of the mobile title and investors. It's really neither here nor there though - all that matters is that the game is good.

Third - we have not discarded mobile. It's a big income generator for us, as we have sold over 600,000 units. We are currently porting to WIndows phone, revising gameplay elements like combat and adding new content like pirates. That said, we're always a bit lost on the requirement to provide continued support for the game. Star Command mobile is significantly longer than other $2.99 games so were just not sure where that outlook comes from (again, one of the major problems with the mobile market).

Currently the plan is to have monthly updates and the next one will be out mid January. We are taking a Prison-Architect/Kerbal/Rimworld route through our Alpha to take some of the pressure off of a schedule and keep the focus on progress and quality.

Be happy to answer any and all questions as well! I will be checking in the forum regularly now that I know there is GoG following here.

Cheers and Happy Holidays,
Jordan@Warballoon
Thanks for informing us of your plans, I look forward to purchasing when it comes to GOG. :)
I see alot of potential for the "vision" warbaloon expects the game will be at launch, but the road so far has been bumpy to say the least, so I won't be holding my breath for the final release of SCG. There are literally worlds apart between their promises and what they delivered so far for a pc player.
I pledged to their second KS, and considered my pledge fulfilled when i played the mobile version they offered, wich i quite enjoyed despite not exactly pc friendly playing trough an emulator. Their release for mobile is one of the few positive points, but the negatives are plenty.
I'm realistic enough to understand the risks of KS and game development, and hopefull SGC will turn into an enjoyable game, so a "hope for the best but expect the worst" aproach seems wise.

Same here. Instant purchase if they manage to reach their goals for the game.
Already ninja'd by the devs, but here's their reply from Facebook:

Yes - 100%. It's just not ready. But DRM free version is virtually gauranteed. We have been in contact with the GOG guys. Game needs to be further along first though.

Excellent !
Hello Jordan, it's good to have you here! Good luck with your plans on Galaxies & please, take your time with the development of the game as we don't want another unfinished product... I'll check the progress of the PC version through your anouncements and in the meanwhile I'll enjoy the mobile SC. Cheers!
I remember when this was one of the "earlier" Kickstarter projects, and the PC version is STILL not out?

Well we had two Kickstarters - one for mobile which was one of the earlier Kickstarters and one after for the PC version. We were planning a straight port with added features but realized/decided creating a new game from the ground up would be the better path in the long run. Features like dynamic maps, procedural planets, and a lot of the other features were going to be extremely difficult to execute.

Galaxies is built for the long haul. Mod support, no linear story, with the ability to quickly add features and content. All of which were very hard and time consuming on mobile/CoCos2D.
Star Command Galaxies. Is that a Star Wars game for dyslexic people?

Great news!!!
I was hesitant to try Star Command on my phone but I got it and LOVE it! I think the whole need more going on with it thing is that I beat pretty darn fast but had a great time doing it. We just want more of it lol. I will be anxious to sink my teeth into Galaxies when it is done.

Glad you're stoked. We have a lot of the same complaints about our own game - hence Galaxies. It really is an answer to all the problems/issues/flaws with Star Command mobile.

Just want to express that I was really eager for Star Command. And I was let down by all the cuts you had to make for the final version (no planetary landings, etc).
Right now, you got my interest again. And I'm really hoping you manage to achieve your goals.
Take all the time you need to bring us the game we hope for.

We think that you will be pretty happy with the Alpha at the next release. And thanks for backing!
