4X Empires Launches Hyperion Ship Skins

In the years following the landing of the colony hives, your empire has grown.  New shipyards have been raised on every major planet and settlement. First scouts and colonizers, and then fighters and hulking cruisers were constructed in the great yards, carrying hundreds if not thousands of souls into the dark of space.

Designs from the old world may have come with your exiled colonists -- even the plans and blueprints of the great Hyperion battleships of the old galactic core.

Buy the $1 Hyperion Ship Skin pack today to access 16 new ship skins, including 4 new skins for every ship type in your fleet.

Buy the Hyperion Ship Pack on Google Play today!

Star Traders 2 Update and 50% off Games for Backers

Dear Captain-Backers,

It’s Cory here, and we’ve got a few things to share. We are in the final days of the Star Traders 2 Kickstarter, and it has been a wild ride. So hold on, everyone … this landing could get interesting.

In today’s update we got a few things to ask, and a few things to offer. We’ll start with the asking.

If you are the sort that uses the Facebook or Twitter, click these link and help us promote our announcement posts:
While you’re here on the project page, press the Share and Retweet buttons to get the word out. Every Share puts us one step closer to the next Social Reward, print-it-yourself digital propaganda posters for the backer-elected Factions.

Share from the Kickstarter Page

Now for the good part, our offers -- negotiating and such not. As you may know, we've got some other games you can play on your PC or Mac and we’re offering a 50% off, Kickstarter-exclusive deal. This type of deal normally comes up once a year in Steam Summer Sale and now, for the rest of the project, it is here on KickStarter.

These games usually run in the $10 to $12 range and you, our honored backers, can get them for just $5. This offer is good on Heroes of Steel RPG and Star Traders 4X, PC and Mac. We will honor these purchases with a Steam Key and a Desura key so you can play on either gaming network.

If you wish to add one or both games, increase your pledge by the corresponding amount above the reward you have selected. For example, if you wish to get a copy of Star Traders 4X Empires ($5) and get the $10 Reward for Star Traders 2, then you would increase your pledge to $15 in total and leave your selection at the $10 reward tier. As a second example, if you were already pledging at the $100 reward, you could raise your pledge to $110 and the leave your reward selection at $100 to get both games.

As soon as the project funds, we’ll reach out to you and arrange the game (Heroes, 4X Empires) and gaming network (Steam, Desura) you’d like and send you your keys.

If you have any questions about the add-on setup, please leave a comment or send me a message. We are in the final days and under $2,000 in final funding to cross the line. Thank you all for your support, increases, and constant encouragement. Together, Captains, let’s bring this ship down safely.

Our deepest gratitude,

Andrew and Cory Trese
