Stretch Goals for “Into the Stars” Announced, Includes PS4 Goal

Published

 on

Fugitive Games announced today the stretch goals for their new title, Into the Stars, along with a brand new trailer. 90% of Kickstarter has been funded at the time of this writing, reaching $77,675 of $85,000.

Some of the stretch goals include:

$105k – German, French and Spanish localization added: We’ll work closely with professional translation services to deliver native versions of the game in these languages.

$130k – Crew Platoon Pack + Custom Crew Names: A host of new crew members for you to choose from and the ability to name them whatever you desire. “Jimmy McButterToast” looks to be a solid engineer… excellent choice!

$155k – Russian, Portuguese and Polish localization added: Yeah, you guessed it… support for additional languages.

$180k – Weapons / Module Pack: We’ll add a new manufacturer who will provide some new modules for your selection. Each of them will have custom properties, audio and VFX support which will provide a unique gameplay experience and perhaps open up new routes to your goal.

$205k – Custom Ship Appearance: Everyone knows that when you look good you also FEEL good and that’s what this tier is all about. Deck out your ship with a host of cosmetic options that show off your personality while you’re on the go.

$230k – Alien Encounter Pack: This tier allows us to add a number of new new aliens for you to encounter, each with unique appearance, stats and demands. We have some fun and evil ideas to explore here and can’t wait to get started!

$255k – PlayStation 4: For all backers at the $15 tier and above, we’ll give you a code for a PS4 copy of Into the Stars. This will of course be delivered AFTER the initial release, but we’d love for you to experience the game on your couch and this will help make that a reality. Please note that there are a lot of unknowns with porting the game and as such there is no timetable for or guarantee of release on other platforms. We absolutely want this to happen, and with your support we’ll do everything we can to ensure it becomes reality, but the requirements of bringing the game to PS4 are unclear at this time.

The new trailer titled, “Sound of Into the Stars”, goes into detail the magic that composer Jack Wall of Mass Effect fame has created.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation

Published

Pokémon

Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
