Starship Corporation at GDC
I am very glad to announce that I will be attending the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March. Living under a rock and completely focused on creating the game of my dreams, I am very excited to meet other developers who share the same enthusiasm and love for playing and developing games, and I am especially looking forward to finally see all the great guys from Iceberg Games in the real world. It will be awesome to finally show features of Starship Corporation that have been secretly in development and to talk about what the future might bring. If you attend as well or happen to live in the San Francisco area – send me a message and let’s meet up!

Starship Corporation signs Publishing Agreement!
I am very pleased to announce the partnership with Iceberg Interactive for the marketing and publishing of Starship Corporation. I believe their experience, especially with great space strategy titles, will be a huge boost to the final quality of the game. Their marketing and localization expertise will encourage many more players to take part in the game experience, creating even more game content and more fun for everyone!Haarlem, the Netherlands – 30 April 2014 – Publisher Iceberg Interactive, destination publisher for sci-fi themed PC games, is proud to announce the signing of Starship Corporation.

Level 3 has just been reached!
Starship Corporation will now get all those elements that I love about games:
- a detailed and challenging sandbox mode
- a persistent online universe, where the players create the world. “Game experience my change during online play” – I love that phrase!
- AND a story/character driven campaign that will supply a thrilling “WHY?” to all the players, who already mastered the “HOW?”. Thank you all so much for giving me the opportunity to create all that.
The IndieGogo campaign is closed, and achieved an amazing budget of $ 20,550!
Thank you all so much!
The Pre-Order option (with extra content) will still be available until Beta-Release - so I am confident, that we can even reach Level 3 to make the single-player campaign possible.
I am proudly presenting an updated Teaser, with music composed by Damian Sanchez (http://www.sonotrigger.com/).
It demonstrates the kind of quality you will get in the Single Player Campaign.
The combined IndieGogo contributions and Paypal-Preorders have reached Level 2 –
Starship Corporation will be an online game!
Thank you all so much, its all too exciting for words…
To find out, if there is enough interest in a german version of the game, I have set up a project at pling.de: http://www.pling.de/projekte/show/321
Awesome! Funding Goal 1 already reached! I am very excited, and I am working hard to release the video tutorials and the playable alpha soon. I have put up a graph showing the overall progress of funding at: http://www.starshipcorporation.com/game/contribution/ (combined IndieGogo contributions and Paypal-PreOrders): Thank you, Dankeschön, Děkuji, Mulţumesc, Merci, Tak, תודה, Köszönöm, Grazie, Dank u, and Kiitos!
I have added different contribution levels (like the ones in the IndieGogo campaign) to the Paypal-Preorder option.
