"Development studio Born Ready Games is ecstatic to confirm that the launch date of Strike Suit Zero will be 24th January 2013 thanks to the unprecedented support of their backers from the Kickstarter campaign.
The amazing response to the campaign that closed early Saturday morning European time, has meant Strike Suit Zero will be ready to launch in two months' time. With a total of $174,804 pledged the first stretch target has been met. This means that the XedMod - a lightweight and unified version of the Xed development toolset used to create the game, can now be finished and shared with the community.
James Brooksby, CEO of Born Ready Games, said "We are truly grateful for all the support we've received and above all else want to thank the community. Their support has meant we're now able to make the game we'd always envisioned, and we can't wait for our fans to get their hands on the game."
As part of the Kickstarter campaign, Born Ready Games also offered exclusive PC beta access for the first thousand backers who pledged $50 or more. This closed beta is currently scheduled for early December.
Strike Suit Zero is an upcoming space-action game with stunning music by Paul Ruskay (Homeworld) and Kokia (Tales of Innocence), and incredible mecha designs contributed by Junji Okubo (Steel Battalion, Appleseed). It is due for a PC release on 24th January 2013, with console versions also planned for later in the year."
