  3. I'm sure they will hit 440k Hopefulyl they manage to have paypal open before the last 48 hours and reminders....Btw stretch gals annunced:
  4. AI for emergent gameplay Update #17 · Jul 13, 2013 · 40 comments MikeD here. I thought I'd write a piece about AI and how I'm coding it up with relevance to emergent game-play.

  5. New update for the Syndicate successor Satellite Reign is up. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/5livesstudios/satellite-reign/posts/534343 Talking about classes and agent death etc.
  6. Agent Death Agents can and will die! If your agents body dies their consciousness is removed and implanted into a new body.

  9. Yeah thats the huge issue. This is also my first game in pouns. If it were anythign but Syndicate or if the pitch wouldnt of been so damn good I wouldnt of entered my CC number either. I'm hoping it doesnt hurt them too much. The Pitch one of the best I have seen on kickstarter and it will be an insult if Double Fines Massive Chalice ends up with more money considering their pitch was an insult.
  10. Being unable to edit my original post is unfortunate....people backing Syndicates spiritual successor that I appreciate!!! One of my all time favorite Childhood games deserves a real successor.
