Folks,

It's launched.

No time for a detailed write up now, will do so later.

You know the drill.

Cheers,

Drew.

You're all stars. You know that.

£300 in the first hour. Encouraging! :o

Drew's Kickstarter wrote:I wrote a series of fan-fic novellas for the open-source Oolite ... They’re deliberately a bit light-weight ... Elite:Reclamation will be written of sterner stuff.
I like the 'sterner stuff' bit... very good!

The Oolite Saga was always going to be 'family friendly'.

Gloves off for the next one. :D

Pledged as well! :)

Just started reading your Oolite stories (I know I'm late but I just recently got a Kindle and I hate reading from a monitor) and I like your style!

And the mention of Cobra Courier didn't hurt a bit... ;)

Well, £1,115, that's basically 1/4 of the way there! On the first day!

Question Drew (actually two parter) part-1: what software did you use to produce the KS video trailer? part-2: I want a copy of the video! Can I have it please? I want to play it over and over again, obsessively...
