Strike Suit Zero, the '90s-style space combat shooter that took to Kickstarter last month for funding, will release for PC on Jan. 24, developer Born Ready Games announced today.
The game closed out its campaign this weekend with $174,804, nearly $75,000 over its initial funding goal. Backers brought the project to its first stretch goal, the general public release of the game's XedMod modding tools. The campaign fell only a little more than $5,000 short of its second stretch goal — Strike Suit Zero ports for Mac and Linux systems.
Born Ready Games is offering exclusive access to the closed beta in December to the first 1000 campaign backers who pledged $50 or more.
"We are truly grateful for all the support we've received and above all else want to thank the community," said Born Ready CEO James Brooksby. "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."
Console versions of Strike Suit Zero are planned for release late next year. Earlier last month, Born Ready announced that the game would be compatible with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
