The development team at Above and Beyond Technologies
went back to Kickstarter
to ask for a little extra funding to develop The Repopulation
. The project's goal was set at a very reasonable $50,000. Now the campaign is over, and it turns out that the company's philosophy of starting low and using stretch goals worked out quite well
. Funding for this campaign closed out at around $176,000, more than triple what was initially requested.
Despite that high number, not every stretch goal was hit, but that's what happens when the developers build a high ceiling. Still, it means that the game squeaked past the mark needed to unlock gladiatorial arenas in player-run cities. It's good news for the game's developers, backers, and even fans who elected not to back the second campaign.
