The Mandate Successfully Kickstarts, Nets $700,000
Perihelion Interactive has successfully completed a Kickstarter campaign for its inaugural title, The Mandate. With a goal of $500,000, the campaign raised $700,000 from over 16,000 backers.
I didn’t have a chance to follow The Mandate closely during the Kickstarter campaign, but the more I read about the space RPG, the more I want to play it. Storming enemy ships and ship vs shipspace combat, tied in with a very Star Trek TNG-sounding dynamic between your Captain character and the crew? Sounds promising, for sure.
The Mandate, which has a planned delivery window of December 2014, has already attracted some A-list voice talent (David Bradley), and its publisher is investing five percent of its Kickstarter funds back into other crowdfunding projects.
