Space shooter Strike Suit Zero,
from developer Born Ready Games, has achieved its Kickstarter goal
of $100K with 14 days to go. With the first objective accomplished, it's on to stretch goals. The first, $130K, will see mod tools created for the game. Should the project make it to $180K, Mac and Linux versions will be created in addition to PC.
The pledge that pushed Strike Suit Zero
past its goal was made by Steve Masters, lead designer of Assassin's Creed 3
reports that Masters, as it turns out, once worked for Born Ready head James Brooksby doing QA for a "space game" called Halcyon Sun
. It was Masters' first job in the game industry.
