    They're just shy of $800,000 with 18 days left to go. Slowing down a little, but they should comfortably make it.

    Yeah, slowing down a bit. I just hope they make at least the first stretch goal (water planets)

    Naval was always my weakest aspect in TA and the SupCom games. Surface vessels, fine, no hassle. Subs and underwater structures and layouts were just a nightmare, especially in TA.

    Ok, so we are at £818k, thats only £82k to go! If we can get to hit the magical £900k target in the next two days we still have 15 days left to work towards the stretch goals. Awesome stuff!

    I was hoping to have the necessary money to put in $100 kick for this after a good market-trading weekend, but sadly people are still too finicky about buying venison.... Trying to get the money together ASAP for it, otherwise I know it will slip my mind.

    Too many things I want, never enough money. First world problems. :p

    Now it's time for stretch goals! My experience of Kickstarter is that there is usually a rush at the end as well, so fingers crossed.

    The only game that has made me wish I had a bigger desk so I could take my 2nd monitor out of storage and put it back on my desk.

    I really hope that is the case, plus they still have 16 days for extra funding to role in!

    I have an old 15" 1024*768 LCD monitor in the depths of my cupboard I'm going to use for this! I'm thinking about modding it. The casing is an absolute POS (think beige, and cheap plastic), but I reckon it could be made awesome with a little bit of thought and some acrylic, might even do a Planetary Annihilation theme for it.

    The managed to make 50,000 in the last 24 hours, so I would imagine at the very least that the 1st Stretchgoal will be achieved. Gas giants would be awesome because it really is something that hasn't been done before :)

    Very true! I wonder when they will release the next two set of stretch goals. Maybe once the first one has been achieved?

    Don't forget they're accepting donations by PayPal as well, which won't show up on Kickstarter. That said, they may or may not be including those towards stretch goals.
