While a lot of projects on Kickstarter do just fine their first time out, many fail to meet the mark, or some sort of issue arises and the designers decide to wait and relaunch later. Often, that second time around the campaign is much more widely followed and it can often surpass expectations. Well, Outer Limit Games has relaunched their Kickstarter campaign for Tau Ceti: Planetary Crisis. It’s already funded.
The game centers around 1-5 players, each in charge of their own alien race, each dealing with a newly-formed alliance between them. But peace isn’t always on the menu as each group is also looking to gain the most resources and strategic positions in the star system. To do this, you must explore the system, recruit specialists, create trade routes, and deal with a fluctuating stock market. Guide your civilization to become the most powerful in the system.
As I mentioned, the campaign is already over their funding goal, and through several stretch goals. The campaign is set to run for another 22 days.
