Latest Stretch Goal Brings Enhanced Alpha Test To Star Citizen

More Test Slots & Earlier Remote Servers For The Dogfighting Module

Yes, I know - it feels like we can't blink without Star Citizen hitting another milestone, but this weekend has seen the crowd-funded Space Sim hit the $25 million mark. While the latest news on the grand total raised is of course impressive, it's not nearly as important as the reward that has been unlocked - an Enhanced Alpha test which will allow European players to jump into the action much sooner than originally planned.

.5 Million Stretch Goal Revealed As Dreamfall Chapters Enters Final Week

Interactive Graphic Novel & “A Richer World” Unlocked

During the early hours of the morning, the folks at Red Thread Games finally announced the mysterious $1.5 Million stretch goal for Dreamfall Chapters – A Director’s Cut. Hitting this target would allow the Norwegian developers to put in all of the extra content they were forced to cut out to accommodate a leaner budget, meaning more puzzles, greater detail to the game, and a few extra characters that, while not key to the experience, would have been sidelined.

The news comes after yet another busy weekend for the folks at Red Thread Games, having sped past two more Kickstarter goals to reach almost $1.2 million at the time of writing. This is more than likely down to renewed interest in the Kickstarter campaign thanks to a series of exclusive reveals on several of the larger gaming websites.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted Adds Hot Air Balloon Stretch Goal

'Tweedpunk' kill-or-be-killed FPS Sir, You Are Being Hunted smashed its Kickstarter target in only a few days, allowing Big Robot to add a selection of intriguing stretch goals. Two of which, the monocle-sporting Landowner hunter and wildlife to kill for sustenance, have already been achieved.

So it's probably time for 'Hot Air Balloon Spotter Patrols,' then.
